Snapshot #79: You’ve Come A Long Way, Bootsie!

Posted on: April 15, 2016

Saturday Snapshot invites bloggers to share photos. About year ago, my husband and I decided to foster a feral cat. This past week, Bootsie not only had a successful vet appointment, but we rewarded her with her very first collar. She wears it proud!

Ah He! Bootsie KNOWS she is special 🙂 And that collar just proves it!!

Bootsie’s story is incredible. I don’t think I’ve heard of a feral cat becoming a pet before. Or a trap neuter release group.

Bootsie was blessed to have caretakers who fed her pretty much all of her life. For that reason, although scared of a lot of things, she remained open to human contact. If for not this, I’m not sure that I would have attempted turning her into a pet.

There are others who have taken in cats far more wild, and successfully turned them into house cats. I applaud everyone who tries, because many of our feral deep down want love as much as the next cat.

And here’s a post about some other local feral cats who became pets too:

What a very pretty cat. My two cats are mother and daughter, but have moments when they do not get on.

My husband and I have three cats. You can follow their adventures by looking for my Critter Photos. As those will show, our cats have their moments of spats and of friendship. 🙂

Oh, Bootsie is adorable! Enjoy her…and thanks for sharing. Here is MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Bootsie is also brave. So many new things she’s tried this past year!

Awww, how wonderful this is. Congratulations all around.

Have a fabulous weekend. 🙂

Thanks! Since getting her collar, Bootsie has gotten friskier in her play. She also joins us more often at night for a sleep. Bootsie is a happy girl.

Beautiful cat. Yes, it looks like Bootsie has come a long way!
My Saturday Snapshot post features hiking in Seattle.

Bootsie thanks you for the compliment. 🙂
