Unbelievable cat sanctuary!

http://www.wimp.com/housescats/

This is where my donation dollars are going from now on. For years, I have said that if I won the lottery the first thing I would do is buy a few acres of land and open a cat sanctuary. All are welcome. This wonderful lady is doing what I always hoped I could do. She is my hero.

Is this the same one? I can't get the link you gave open. I guess it doesn't like my wireless. She is an amazing woman for sure.

Yuppers! That's the same one. Thank you for posting a better link.

I am in absolute awe of her.

I gave to them last Christmas (when I had the moola).... I really really want to go see the place in person, maybe make it like a vacation and volunteer a couple of days or something. I know if I ever had the space....or money that's what I'd be doing!

Thanks for posting that. I'd love to give her a big donation next time I have some money .
Quote:
I wish I could get some of mine adopted but as soon as you mention a cost for adoption or that the cats can not be declawed and have to be indoor only people walk away. They know there are so many around here they can get for free so why pay? :sad:
That's why I didn't take in my cats hoping to get them adopted out. That's how people are .

There are people that have otherwise good homes that want to declaw and I just won't allow that. I've seen too many cats that were traumatized by it. I'm not gonna have my cats toes amputated (which is basically what it is - I'm surprised vets don't seem to explain this to people when they want to have it done...).
Other people that expect the cats to be free (helloooo, it costs money to s/n and get shots and buy food and litter )
The amount of people that want kittens to give as a gift or to give to their little kid is ridiculous.

Anyway, end of rant. *sigh* People...

I hope this lady has a long, long, healthy life.
My sister and me have always had this fantasy about owning a big ranch or country house and give shelter to a lot of kitties and doggies.
So now I know we're not alone on that one. I saw some of you would like that and someone who actually went ahead and did it.
A hero indeed.
