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.
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.

But, now we are in need of your help again.
We recently had unexpected medical expenses associated with a cat that was left outside our gate. We are calling him "Biscuits"(see him on our "Welcome Room" webcam).
If you are not sure how to see our webcams, go to our website www.cats-cradle.org and click on "see our webcams".
Unfortunately, this has happened before, but we do not talk about it to avoid others from "dumping" their unwanted cats.
Also, during this same period, we experienced other Cat related medical expenses.
As you may know, we have also been spending money outfitting a new room for our Seniors (now completed) and experienced the expenses associated in preparing for new daily activities for our Seniors (see our website under activities/events).
These improvements will continue to make our facility "best in class" Senior Cat Sanctuary in the Country.
Although we have collected $20,000 over the last few years, this is far less than our expenses and less than comparable "shelters" receive. As you know, we do not employ a staff or receive Grant money.
Now that we are retired, it has become more difficult to operate without contributions.
So, we ask again, if you appreciate what we do in rescuing and caring for Senior Cats, and by providing our followers the enjoyment of viewing our Seniors on our webcams (at no cost), please help us.
PS: we are hoping our short documentary, (being shown at film festivals in Nashville, Greenwich, and Seattle), will help us raise donations, but we can't count on that happening.
Note: If you have ideas about how we could raise additional contributions, please send us a note.
Your contributions are greatly appreciated!

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.
