No cat (or any domesticated critter, for that matter) should be alone, starving, and indiscriminately breeding, and we’re doing the best we can in our little community to help. We take in homeless cats and kittens to feed them, love them, and provide medical care. Our current count is 21. We provide nutritious food, treats, clean litter boxes, toys, clean beds, and up-to-date shots. Most importantly, all of our rescues (except the youngest one we just took in) have been spayed or neutered.
Please Help If You Can
Please consider donating to our fundraiser: https://gofund.me/55ab726d. All donations will be used for food, treats, litter, shots, and spaying and neutering. These are on-going expenses.
Ed and I have been rescuing felines for almost 13 years. When we started on this journey, Ed was self-employed and I worked full-time, so having two incomes was a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, Ed suffered a brain bleed several years ago and became disabled. He also has diabetes, cancer and MS, so I retired early to take care of him. In a nutshell, everything is getting more and more expensive, and our social security is being stretched to the limits. The waiting lists for free spay and neuter services in our area are so long that we have paid out of pocket for all but one of our rescues.
I have always called Ed “The Cat Whisperer” because there’s not a feline around that doesn’t develop some sort of relationship with him. The ferals are typically scared of me at first but he does what he does, and before long they are his friends and eventually they get less and less afraid of me. It’s pretty amazing!
As mentioned above, we have 21 felines – 13 inside and 8 more ferals/semi-ferals in the back yard – and we call them our kids (since our human kids are all grown with families of their own)! Ed has named all the kids, and has built a catio for the inside kids and a catio for the outside kids.
