Shadow Cats in Round Rock, TX

I volunteered briefly at (and continue to support) Shadow Cats, an awesome organization dedicated to improving the lives of abused, abandoned, feral, stray, and injured cats in Round Rock, Austin and surrounding areas. Learn more about them and their wonderful work here.

The Felvies at Austin Pets Alive

I started with the best cats ever: residents of the Feline Leukemia Sanctuary at Austin Pets Alive. The chronicle of the experience--the joys and the losses, the laughs and the tears--is on this Tumblr. One of my favorite stories about an FeLV+ Sanctuary resident, Ms. Meow, is here. Two of the best cats ever to cross the Sanctuary threshold were Ms. Mitzi and Ms. Luigi!
