Modern kids, with caring hearts...

The new colony is flurishing...thanks espeshully to four teenage boys and der little sister. Mom goes to da new colony every weekend to make sure da cats is getting fed and stuff. She need not have worried. Every time she goes der is four brothers and their sister there working on stuff like cleaning off snow, cleaning feeders and shelters and best of all the oldest boy haf bilt a wind power source for heated water dishes dey brawt, cuz dey were worried about da frozen water. He got da idea from here wind power to power dem electrical warming water bowls and add a little heat to da shelters. The fans he's using are attached to trees! He's using dis for his entry into some "living green" competition. He starts college next year and wants to be an engineer and work on wind power for whole cities. Mom is not allowed to take pikshers of his stuff until after da compitishun is over, she respects dat. Not that mom would even be able to figger out what he haf done...he started explaining it to her, wif great acitement, and mom's eyes glazed over. Dad might get it, he's into all dat 'lectrical stuff. Dem kids even took da time to bury da wires so da cats can't chew on dem or other kids trip over dem. Mom's waiting fur her frend to email some pikshers from da "great feral escapade" only one person even thawt to bring a camera...hoomans, sheesh.

Wow! You know Momma never wanted to have kids because all she has seen is un grateful and rude arrogant little so and so's.
After reading this story she had a little change of heart.
It is so wonderful to hear!! :)

It is so wonderful that those kids have taken such an active role in caring for the kitties. Those are very lucky kitties to have their own wind powered colony. That's such an inspiring story.

It's great to hear about these helpful kids. And that guy who has figured out the wind power to warm the bowls ... he's going to be a great help to animals in the future! We need more of all of them.

It is great to hear of kids especially helping to care for ferals. I had a group that I cared for for 9 years - even bringing some inside. When we moved I took them with me and they have their own house. Great work you do!!!!!

You must gotz some nice hoomins over dere cuz theyz takin' care of dem feral cats. Weez not shure wot feral means, but if its got "cats" after it, it gotz to be good, right?

Lady-slave's eyes is allwez glazin' over too - espeshully when Man-slave starts tokkin bout dat game he watches on the HD tv. It's called sock her or sumpun. We likez ta watch da ball go backz and fort on da screen sumtimz.

See ya at the Hyggehus!

Love,
