Cats of Wildcat Woods

The world of social media is wonderful for discovering cat rescue groups, individual rescuers and blogs. I first crossed paths with Cats of Wildcat Woods via Instagram. When I reached out to Cheri regarding a profile on how she helps feral cats, I finally realized that she has a blog as well, which some readers likely already know about and follow.

If you are already familiar with Cheri and her blog, I hope you are able to learn a little more from today’s profile. And if you’ve never heard about Cats of Wildcat Woods, I think you’ll find Cheri’s work inspiring.

Cats of Wildcat Woods is a small independent cat sanctuary, with mainly Continue reading “Cats of Wildcat Woods”

Little Cats Helping Big Cats (and giveaway!)

I’ve always thought that Dexter is a lion in the body of a little house cat (but don’t tell him that). When he stretches or yawns – or stands just so, I can see him at home in the Pride Lands, ruling his domain. Don’t you agree?


So, when I found out about the Little Cats Helping Big Cats campaign, I of course thought of my little Dexter and that he would love to help big cats. Really, it’s a perfect marriage of feline partnership, small and large joining forces. And I can’t be the only cat mom who feels this way about her house cats. Am I right? Aren’t they just little cats, but big at heart? Continue reading “Little Cats Helping Big Cats (and giveaway!)”

Change One Life

Jackie and Paul founded Change One Life in December 2012, a cat rescue that is a non-profit, volunteer-based grassroots group on the Canary Islands of Spain. They provide a sanctuary for abandoned cats, all of which have been rescued in the Southern area of Tenerife Island.

The rescue does not re-home any of the cats. 99% of the cats were once in homes, but then they were left behind and Continue reading “Change One Life”

Avalo Cat Sanctuary

Avalo Cat SanctuaryMichelle Donlick founded Avalo Cat Sanctuary in January 2010. Based in South Carolina, the 501(c)3 sanctuary covers all of the United States, but focuses mostly in the Southeast region. What makes Avalo Cat Sanctuary unique is that they take in domesticated hybrids and small exotic felines that have particular needs, require medical attention, or can simply no longer remain with their human guardian for whatever reason. The sanctuary takes in domestic cats as well.

Mission statement: To make the world a better place for cats through Continue reading “Avalo Cat Sanctuary”
