Rejoice! Oct. 16 is National Feral Cat Day

An ode to Misses Kittylitter

Feral felines rejoice! There's a day completely devoted to you, you back-alley claw-cloppers.


You're a National day.


Finally, feral cats are getting the much deserved recognition that they ought.  You're even a website.  And you're not a simpleton dot-com domain , no siree, you're a .org. 


You hear that, feral cats 'cross this great nation?  You're a .org domain, not to mention, a national holiday (practically) like Columbus Day (practically) or Thanksgiving (practically) or Shark Week (if I may be so bold).  


Alley Cat Allies is the commendable non-profit that raised awareness for this magnanimous day. Back in 1991, Alley Cat Allies ignited its staunch support for feral American cats, politician-ing against the more-than-common act of euthanizing stray cats in shelters. 


In fact, Alley Cat Allies monumentally campaigned the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) alternative to euthanization, raising public awareness of this domestic issue.


I dedicate this blog entry to the feral cat who calls the Santa Fe University campus her stomping ground, with two bent ears and yellow fangs. 


To you, Misses Kittylitter (I named her that), I raise my milk 'stache in your honor, you who prance around the bungalows all day like you own the place, and on October 16, you do.
