Goathouse Refuge Cat Santctuary in Pittsboro, NC

I recently visited here. What a wondeful place. Over 250 free roaming enclosed cats. These cats LOVE people. You will have no problem getting cats in your lap. They are not only photogenic but they demand to be photographed! As I was snapping a picture of one feline, another was swatting at me for attention. Someday I hope to start a sanctuary like this one.

Kitty Cardio- Pewter sheds the pounds!

After a more regulated food intake and a consistent cardio routine of feather chasing 2-3 times per day, Pewter has reached his goal weight just in time for those new summer fashions! Here he is taking a breather from some ab toning crunches.

Back In Durham!

Sometimes I think Durham, NC is the epicenter of cat ownership. All cat nanny roads seem to lead me back here. There is always a cat owner traveling and in need of live-in feline care.

After being on the road for the last year; a cattle ranch in Georgia with 4 cats, a Philadelphia penthouse with one cat and 1 frog, then back to Durham with the 5 cats on 9th Street, then back and forth to my aunt's beach house on the coast, 1 cat in Chapel Hill, then living with a friend in New York City....I am more than ready to settle down for a while and not see my suitcase for a long time.

Began this cat sit in April 2015 and will be here through February 2016. Pewter and Sweetie Pie's mom is working in Australia over the next year.

Pewter is 6 years old and a food addict. He weighs 19 lbs and through regulated food intake and a cardio routine he will hopefully be reaching his goal weight of 15 lbs.  His sister Sweetie Pie is 12 years old and a light eater. She prefers cuddling to eating, definitely living up to her name.

Caterwauling Carlotta

For the past month I have been caring for Carlotta in Chapel Hill. She has a thyroid condition that makes her caterwaul. I give her a pill every morning and she takes it like a champ, sometimes with food and sometimes I just pop it in her mouth.

She loves nothing more than a good belly rub and to be held like a baby. She wraps her arms around my wrist purring herself to sleep and won't let go. She also has designated belly rubbing areas she will lead one to and enjoys burrowing in a blanket especially during this cold spell.

We've been trapped in the house all week due to the below freezing temperatures and snow. Things are supposed to warm up this weekend.

Baby G Says Good-Bye to 2014 And To His Balls

Baby Gangsta is recovering nicely from his neutering while 3 of the other 5 cats nap in a cozy cluster. Blackie lounges in his hammock. Finally the lady cats of the house are no longer being harassed. It was like living in a U of Virginia frat house.
