Sophie here! I thought this was going to be a restful and relaxing weekend. But that never seems to be the case in our household. Turns out Mom and Pops welcomed another intruder to our house yesterday!
I knew something was up when they left early in the morning to go somewhere…they muttered something about “beating traffic” or some human nonsense. They came back a little bit later with this tiny black ball of fur.
I’d like to officially introduce you to our newest foster cat Lion. This four-year-old handsome fella may look a tiny bit familiar to regular blog readers. Some cat named Dexter isn’t too sure about the new guy and his tabby face. It’s okay, Dexter, there’s plenty of love to go around!
Sometimes when you meet someone they just ooze kindness and you immediately feel their warmth and generosity. That is the case with Samantha Bell DiGenova, the Cat Behavior and Enrichment Lead for Best Friends in Los Angeles.
Samantha and I are both volunteers with the Jackson Galaxy Foundation (JGF), which is how we were put in touch. She is a volunteer trainer-mentor to the participating Cat Pawsitive shelters (and I’m a volunteer writer). I was fortunate enough to meet Samantha in person when she kindly played tour guide when I visited Best Friends in Los Angeles last month.
And today, we get to learn more about Samantha and her three adopted cats.
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to meet with Samantha Bell DiGenova, the Cat Behavior & Enrichment Lead for Best Friends Animal Society in Los Angeles, and tour their impressive facility.
I met Samantha through volunteering with the Jackson Galaxy Foundation’s Cat Pawsitive initiative (she as a trainer-mentor to shelters and me as a writer) and asked her if I could drive up for a visit. Being the fabulous person that she is, Samantha immediately agreed, and she gave me a personal tour of the Los Angeles facility, which I’m happy to share with you today.
