Most of 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 19 of us cats so scroll down to make sure you meet them all. We have black cats, black tortoiseshell, 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.
Update from Poncho's Mom Mary Ellen - I can't thank you enuf for getting prayers for Ponch. He is doing ok. Just tried to get antibiotics liquid down him but he threw up. Had chemo pill this afternoon in baby food & now in cycle of not feeling good. I am a 2 time survivor of breast cancer & chemo -I know how it is. Poncho says thank you & went & curled up in his shoe box.
This is 14 year old Poncho who lives with his Mom Mary Ellen in Birmingham AL. Mary Ellen is Mom's friend's sister. Poncho has been sick for a while, losing weight and was diagnosed with high thyroid and a heart murmur and given medication. He didn't get much better so after going to several vets, Mary Ellen finally went to the vet school in Auburn and they found that the had lymphoma rather than high thyroid. He was treated with chemo and sent home with more pills to take.
He is his Mom's pride an joy and she would like to have him a few more years and feeling good too. Please put him on your purrs and prayer list.
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.
