I am starting this Go Fund Me page for my mom and dad. For those who know my family and me, know the passion we have for animals. We have been rescuing, nurturing and finding homes for cats for many years. There has been a lot of money and time put into this effort. Unfortunately with time, money is getting tight. My mom has lots of health problems. My dad is retired from our utility company. He served our Country for 20 years in the Navy. Now, with my mom they spend at least 6 hours a day outside with cats. Feeding, loving, nursing, building shelves, shelter and obstacles for all that make their way to their house. My dad built a catio for their indoor cats Their back porch has become a gym for them. Everyday something needs to be fixed or replaced. Some of these cats need medical attention. Vet bills are high. All cats get spayed or neutered when they come to their house. Their has been pregnant cats dropped off. Right now a stray cat has had kittens and another one is about to. We try to find homes for them but unfortunately if we don't find a home by the time they are 5 months old. People don't want them because they are not that cute little kitten they are looking for. My parents house becomes their furrever home. So much goes into taking care of all these cats and kittens. Lots and lots of food, kitten milk, litter, cooling pads for the hot summers, heat lamps, beds, blankets, medicines. This list could go on. They take time in socializing them so they can find a home. You pet one they all want to be petted. You never have enough hands. There are no vacations. This is a full time responsibility that they have committed to. My daughter has rescued several cats and dogs also. She has 3 dogs and 2 cats of her own. She is nursing 2 cats back to health that someone about starved to death. She has taken on a mama cat and her 5 kittens until the kittens are old enough to find homes for them. I have 2 cats myself. One was a foster cat where my daughter went to school and one I got from my moms house that was born with one eye underdeveloped. I have been feeding 4 cats downtown where I work for the last 3 years. We have rescued some cats from downtown and found homes for them. There is a lot of enjoyment in helping animals, but lots of heartbreak goes along with it. For all the people and organizations that have the same passion as we do. I want to say Thank You! One person can not do it all. It takes everyone working together. For some reason God has put this mission in our lives. If you could find it in your heart to donate, it would be greatly appreciated. No Cat is left behind! This page is in memory of my sister in heaven. Bonita Ann White
