Here are a few profiles so you get a chance to meet the kitties your donations will benefit.
First up is Eleanor, our inspiring special needs girl and a volunteer favorite. Eleanor was born with meningitis and given only about 6 months max to live. She's right around three years old now, and shows some neurological damage in her Parkinson's-like tremors. She doesn't have any pain from her issues, and Eleanor is surprisingly speedy when she wants to be, toddling over to the gate to greet you with a little "chirrup" when you arrive.
Eleanor is one of our permanent residents and will not be adopted out. Here's a video I took of her in early March of this year:
Cody and Cosmo
Cody and Cosmo are one of our pairs of nearly identical, orange tabby brothers (the other pair are Lightning and Thunder) and are adoptable. Well-loved and well-cared for by someone for 9 years, these boys ended up at Fat Kitty City. Cody (top photo) is slightly bigger than Cosmo, but they are both big boys that love to be cuddled like babies. Babies that weigh about 18 pounds and are nearly too big to carry! These sweet boys will need to be adopted together, which means it usually takes a little longer to place them. Until they find their forever home, you'll find Cody and Cosmo hanging out at Fat Kitty City, living the good life.
We also get hardship cases at Fat Kitty City, as more cats are impacted by their owner's dire straits. A classic example is Amarissa, an elderly cat found abandoned and neglected outside a foreclosed home. Despite being heavily matted, starved to skin and bones, and having a severe eye infection, her memories of loving humans were strong enough to make her seek the help of a woman passing by. The woman contacted local shelters and rescue groups, which told her that the cat would likely need to be euthanized on arrival--until Fat Kitty City agreed to take her in. When I saw the picture of her on arrival, I honestly thought it was a deceased cat
