Caregivers of The Sunshine Home at This Old Cat
With no human children, we focused on caring for our four-legged "kids". It wasn't long before Charlie had sisters and brothers. One after another we rescued and adopted. We have now settled in with more -- always with room in our hearts and home for one or two more should they come along. All of our cats are always spayed or neutered, all have their claws intact (except those who had already been declawed long before we rescued them), all remain indoors and all are kept current on their vaccinations.
Early on, when Chuck and the others were young, we started asking questions and planning for the care of our cats should something happen to us. We were surprised to find there were not many options. It was then, over 25 years ago, the dream was born. In 2004 that dream became a reality -- a reality for your cats and others like them -- when The Sunshine Home at This Old Cat officially opened its doors! Our lives are our cats. Virtually everything we do either involves them or revolves around them. Read some of the testimonial letters we've received and you'll know of our passion for the animals.
We were visited by the Director of Field Services of this area's largest humane society and he stated he was impressed with how well-kept and clean our home was, right down to the twelve litter boxes for the 12 cats. We obviously do take pride in doing things right.
