A Cat Named Bruce Inspires a Sanctuary

Cat rescues and sanctuaries each have their unique way of getting started. Today, we learn about a small cat rescue in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, fittingly named Bruce’s Legacy.

Rose Goodwine, founder and president, started the rescue in 2014 with the mission to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes. The 501(c)3 group also wants to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering, and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

In 2005, shortly after my husband and I returned home from our Hurricane Katrina evacuation, two feral cats who had somehow survived Continue reading “A Cat Named Bruce Inspires a Sanctuary”

5 Reasons to Adopt an Adult Cat

Making the decision to adopt a cat is the beginning of an exciting journey. And for each adopter, the journey is a little different. Today in our Adoption Tails Series, we will see how one adopter turned to searching online for her perfect furry friend – and searched specifically for an adult cat.

But before we get to Karen’s adoption story, here are some reasons to consider adopting an adult cat.

Secret Paws!

Sophie here! The Mama finally let us open our Secret Paws presents. We had been sniffing the box and wrapped presents for what seemed like ages. And when we finally got at ‘em, we weren’t disappointed.

We would like to say a very big thank you to our new kitty friend Samantha and her mom Chandra from Life from a Cat’s Perspective for picking out the awesome toys and treats!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday filled with lots of love (and catnip)! Continue reading “Secret Paws!”

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It should, right? Christmas is only four days away!

Just a quick maintenance note before I get to all the holiday fun. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve now migrated the blog over to being self-hosted. I was told that anyone who subscribed to the blog via WordPress.com will now only see posts in WP Reader and will no longer receive emails when there’s a new post. If you still want to receive email notifications, then you will need to subscribe again, which you can do on the sidebar to the right (if you’re on a computer) or at the very bottom (if you’re on mobile). Sorry for the hassle – this only applies to WP.com readers. If you subscribed with your email address before, you should continue to receive email post notifications as usual.

Thank you to all our kitty, doggie and human friends for sending all of the wonderful Continue reading “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”

Tortie Talk Tuesday with Olive

Olive here! It has come to my attention that some readers have noticed that I don’t appear on the Mama’s blog as often as my siblings. Or that I ever appear with my siblings in pictures. So, I thought I’d drop in today with a couple of updates and one surprise for you.

First off, let me tell you that I like to keep things mysterious, which is why I don’t allow the Mama to snap my picture often. She always has a camera or phone in her hands, so I usually run the other way when I see her coming. But when I do allow it, I look oh so bee-oo-tee-full! Don’t you agree? Well, don’t you?!?
