11-year-old Doodie came into Sue Marshall’s life five years ago. Sue had just arrived in the US from Australia, and since her work schedule was quite fluid, she wanted to find a shelter where she could volunteer during her free time. There was a photo of a gorgeous Siamese cat on the front desk. The special needs cat had been at the shelter for five years after being returned several times because her multiple illnesses were too much for adopters. “She looked so sad,” said Sue, “so I asked if I could foster her.

Finally, the shelter agreed to a short term foster arrangement, and Sue took her home.Continue Reading

Bob showed up at Cindy Jones’ neighbor’s house in the foothills above San Diego one day. “He was definitely feral,” says Cindy, “but obviously he knew food could be found where humans were.” Since the neighbors had no interest in feeding a feral cat, she began to feed him daily. “It wasn’t long before he figured out that humans weren’t that bad – as long as they played by his rules.” During the two years of living next door, Bob learned that “humans were entertaining as well as a source of food.”Continue Reading
