This Is Where the Money Goes

Fat Kitty City is the no-kill, cage-free sanctuary which benefits from the Pens for Paws Auction, and I stopped by yesterday to get some pictures of the furry friends who call FKC home. Some are adoptable--even some special needs kitties--and others will live their entire lives at the sanctuary. Many of the permanent residents are here as a result of bequests from owners who passed away and no one in the family was able or willing to take on their pet.

On to the pictures, so you can meet some of the kitties who will be getting medical care, food, and supplies from your bids! You can click on any of the pictures to bring up a filmstrip and see them bigger.

This is Bamboo: he was abandoned with another cat and became so malnourished that he developed severe skin issues. He's on the mend, but the poor guy still has some patches that need to heal on his tail, rump, and face. Thankfully, he'll get the care he needs--including affection! He loves to sit in your lap for petting and will give you little love nips if you dare to stop.

Here are part of my entourage that accompany me on walks around the sanctuary

And I think we have a new contender for fattest Fat Kitty (and it has the cutest tiny meow)

And these two kitties are taking advantage of the adoption room and its many cool places to nap. Those stairs in the corner lead to a sleeping loft too, a favorite place to hideout in winter.

And finally, some other sanctuary scenes to give you a sense of the place

Thanks for reading! And now, one of our stars will serenade you (there's no sound, it's just a picture, but be grateful I spared your ears)!
