It's me, Witty Kitty. Mom and Dad escaped the huskies in search of cats yesterday. Here's what they found....
Check out www.priderock.org. It's a wild cat and wolf sanctuary (no tours, but 30 cats and some wolves). The cat feeding bill alone is $1,000/week. Basically it's a couple of humans with one very part time volunteer who took in some cats that others were ready to discard. You know photographers who use cubs and then discard them as they get older... Can we help them out? Mom says if you know deer hunters in the DFW area, they love venison donations (sounds just awful to me). And, we're looking for a volunteer for next year's blogathon to help raise over $1,000 for them. That's only one week of kitty chow over there. Please help us spread the word and donate. Two humans to 30 cats, some wolves and all the stray dogs in the area...these humans are out numbered.
If anyone wants to help repair kitty kennels, make cougar hammocks from old fire hoses, or help rebuild metal roofs, give us a shout. These cats live over 20 years, and these folks are committed to keeping these guys safe and fed for life.
In the meantime, Mom says the kitty kisses are pretty rough, like mine! I'm going back to cat napping myself.
P.S. You can buy stuff at www.furtheanimals.com and Pride Rock gets 10 percent of your purchase if you select them as your rescue of choice at check out.
