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 20. 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 are used for food, treats, litter, shots, and spaying and neutering. These are on-going expenses.
Ed and I have been rescuing felines for a number of 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 20 felines – 12 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.

We recently had to have our boy, Milo, put to rest. All in the span of seven days, he went from being seemingly normal to his body shutting down. It was devastating, to say the least. He was such a good boy and didn’t deserve this. My heart is so broken. Milo’s crossing the Rainbow Bridge prompted me to create a Memorial section on this page to remember our fur babies who are no longer with us. I found images online and on Pinterest that I used to create laminated tags to put in our garden on wires with some pretty river rocks.
Thanks so much for stopping by and hopefully you won’t be a stranger! I’ll update this page with new rescues as they happen! We won’t turn anybody away! <3
