Everyone wants to save feral and stray cats and there are plenty of well funded organizations dedicated to that cause.
What about the homeless cat that is too old to be adopted? That's where we come in...
Many of our Senior Cat residents have also been victims of unfortunate circumstances such as abandonment or the death of their Owner.

Even though we are a registered 501c3 non-profit we do not qualify for the grants available to conventional shelters because adoption of cats is not our primary focus.
Please help us defray our medical expenses so we can continue to extend the life of these wonderful cats.
These new activities will be announced next week (we guarantee you will be surprised)
A new camera will allow you to enjoy seeing our Kitties participate in these one-of-a-kind activities.
Unfortunately, we are just $200 short of our goal.
Please help us if you can and thank you to those who have already donated.
To address this, we hope to soon open an exciting new area - adjacent (but open to) the existing facility. (see attached). This picture shows where it will be built (fence shown will be removed).
This will effectively double the outdoor space, and provide our Seniors with an open, sunny, meadow which will also include a brick/paver patio in the center (with sunning benches and a birdbath). This area will also provide additional access to our bridge system.
We have already raised $1100 of the $5500 required to complete this expansion (see itemization below).
We are offering to grant the "Naming Rights" to this area to the first contributor of $2,000. In appreciation, we will provide appropriate signage ie. "Megans Meadow - made possible by John and Mary Doe".
If you donate $50 or more, we will include your name on a new plaque, similar to the appreciation plaque we created for our Butterfly Memorial Garden donors. (see attached)

Fence Posts (10 @ $12 ea) $120

What a wonderful way to help us and memorialize your beloved pet.
they either go into one of our two air-conditioned rooms or find a cool spot in the shade to lay down.
It occurred to us that we can make all of our Seniors' their lives better by creating a "tropical rainforest" environment. This project will involve transforming our current "jungle gym" area.
In this area, our Seniors will be able to find a quiet shady spot next to the pond, chase lizards (we will supply) in the lush foliage, or climb a ladder and spend some time on one of the two observation decks of the "Jungle Hut".
The conservative cost for these improvements is $2,500. This money will be spent creating the Jungle Hut, electrical and plumbing changes, and for the purchase of a large number of mature plants needed to provide shade and a "rainforest" look. (our labor is free!)
By donating towards this project, you will provide another stimulating experience for our Seniors and help them be more comfortable in the Summer months.
We think you will enjoy seeing the transformation of the space and the subsequent enjoyment of this enrichment activity by our Seniors (plus, it will be on our webcams)
Thank you again for making us the best Sanctuary for homeless Senior cats.
We came in 4th out of 150 short films at the Seattle Film Festival.
We hope you will enjoy and pass on!
Our Kitties thank you again for your support.
Cleopatra is very pretty; someone should enjoy her. I am still not 'over' having to 'put down' my 19-year-old TOPAZ in mid-December. Not ready to confront another emotional challenge for a while. I'll continue to send whatever I can to help your efforts.
