We are a private feral cat sanctuary. These cats are rescued ferals from the groups living in my yard or the neighborhood block. Some live with us inside - the elderly ones who need more attention and medication. The rest have their own house with a screen porch for warm weather (we cover it with plastic in cold seasons) and a nice snuggly indoor area for winter.There are 18 of us cats so scroll down to make sure you meet them all. We have black cats, gray tabbies, brown tabbies, tuxedo blue, and all white cats! Some are more tame than others but they all have a safe forever home with us.
Our Pop's mom, our Grandmom, passed away this past Sunday. She was almost 90 and had been in a nursing home for the past number of years. The photo above was from her 50th Wedding Anniversary in the late 1980's.
Since we were her only grand kids from our Mom and Pop we were called her grandkitties. This would make her smile! Our oldest kittiesChica and Yoko know Grandmom well...they used to sneak in her room when she visited us and pull all the tissues out of her tissue box and shred them. She couldn't figure out how that happened and never suspected us cats! Heehee
Lou Ellen was born in Texas and lived there her whole life, raising three boys. She was a tough spunky lady, honest, outspoken and with a hearty laugh! She always dressed beautifully, everything color coordinated. In later years, she and Grandpop got to travel a lot overseas and all over. Mom and Pop took them lots of places when they came to visit us.
Grandmom volunteered at the local hospital in Texas with Grandpop. Grandpop Sam passed first about ten years ago.
We will miss her and hope that she is with Grandpop at the Bridge, having fun with all the older folks - her family and friends who have already gone.
He was Joey and Minnie's litter mate. He developed cancer while still living outdoors so I brought him inside and cared for him until he passed away in 2006. He loved all the attention he got. He was a very shy boy but handsome.
