by Lupe Gore


Hello, my name is Picaboo. My human family at Feral Paws Rescue called me “peek-a-boo” because I would hide behind something and stick my head around the corner to play “peek-a-boo” with them. But they couldn’t remember how to spell it.

Well kids, the year 2017 has finally tucked its tired tail between its legs and is officially leaving the building. Let’s all say it together; good riddance! What a tumultuous twelve months it’s been, and we’ve seen it all from the Good; an amazing Total Solar Eclipse, the Bad; Mother Nature’s wrath of wildfires and hurricanes, and the Ugly; cruel terrorist attacks and heartless massacres.

by Tom Sims



Sometimes, I eat alone. When I do so, my options are broader, brighter, and easier. But I do not always eat alone. When I eat with others, it is not necessary for my health that I eat. I have other ways of getting nutrition, but it is more pleasant and more of a celebration if I can order and savor something from the menu.

When a shelter contacts Feral Paws Rescue, it is usually to pull kittens, or a family, or a stray cat (friendly or feral) brought in by Animal Control, or a cat who was surrendered by their owner and hasn’t been adopted within the allotted time designated by the shelter and is scheduled to be euthanized. Jazzy and Rocky were at different shelters, but now have found friendship with each other and a happy life at Feral Paws Rescue.
