Once upon a time, someone decided feeding feral cats wasn’t as much fun as trying to help them live better lives would be, so she called a local feral cat lady who came and trapped this feral family. Mom heard about the feral kittens and upon seeing them, fell instantly in love with the gray boy kitten, whom she called Cameron.

Cameron was a true feral, a son of a feral mother, and it took a long time before anyone could touch him without drawing back a ventilated finger or hand. But with time and patience, he became less and less wild and a wonderful member of the early Colehaus family.

Mom and Dad believe he was much happier as an indoor cat than had he been left to learn to fend for himself in a hardscrabble life among the wild blackberry bushes alongside a very busy city street. Of course, no one knows that for certain, but we’ll gladly argue the point with just about anyone.

One thing we are absolutely certain of is that had he remained a feral in the wild, he would never have met the love of his life, Zooot, who loved him every bit as much right back.

We smile whenever we stop to remember Angels Cameron and Zooot, knowing they are together over the Rainbow bridge. If you’d like, you can read a bit more about Cameron and Zooot and the other never forgotten Angels of Colehaus Cats here.

We noticed Pia sitting on the tall bistro chair the other day, a place she rarely stays, and we were reminded of another cat who sometimes sat there, years ago, on that chair with that stripy pillow. So we ask you…

Who wore it better?

Before the Colehaus Cats you know now, in the ancient, olden days of yore, before there were many cats on the Internets, there were two earlier batches of Colehaus Cats. Sadly, we don’t have much in the way of photos from the very first group, but we do have good records of the second.

Lounging in the original Cat Den before cabinets and cat trees, clockwise from lower left corner, Queen Crits in the round bed giving gray, ex-feral Cameron a bath. Big ginger boy Ian weighed in at forty-three pounds and defied nearly all attempts at dieting (he finally came down to twenty-five with ultra strict vet monitoring). Dilute tortie G.B. naps in the upper corner. Almost white Skitters adopted us when we helped him recover from being nailed shut in an attic by a bad neighbor. And ginger girl Zooot, outgoing sibling to sister G.B loved snuggling anywhere her favorite blanket lay.

All are at the Rainbow Bridge now, undoubtedly sticking together, sharing and remembering good times. You can read more about each one here at our Never Forgotten – OTRB link.
