You know how as a kid, you might have had a scruffy little teddy bear? One whose fur was worn from all the hugs and kisses you bestowed upon him, and the jelly you spilled on him and left to dry, but then licked off later when you remembered it was there?
If you’ve ever wanted to relive that comfort but in the form of a cat, I have for you, the one, the only: Henrietta.
Now, Henrietta isn’t particularly set on going home with one person. You see, she has needs. Special needs. She has liver disease and is working hard to keep the ring worm at bay. There may even be a touch of lymphoma, but she hasn’t fully fessed up to it yet. She’s got a great attitude, though, despite her sad origins in a tightly-packed hoarder house. She loves people and other cats, and really, she’s quite happy where she is at Tabby’s Place.
My point here is this: Henrietta is looking for someone to help pay her Tabby’s Place rent. Well, she’s looking for sponsors. See her as the Artur Rubenstein of cats, seeking a patron to help her keep up her lifestyle while she tickles the ivories of all who come to pet her. Her medications are expensive, and so is her hairdresser. Do you have any idea what it costs these days to get that punk ombre done just right? Do you? Henrietta is particular about her hair and you’ll notice that some days it’s black, other’s it’s silver, and now it’s kind of white in places. Tabby’s Place even described her as a little “fiber optic Christmas Tree.” It’s all part of her lifestyle, and possibly her liver disease, and she needs someone to help her keep that going.
Henrietta has a lot of friends in her flat, and they all have numerous sponsors. But not Henrietta. For some reason, she has been overlooked by the sponsorship world. She needs to close this gap and I’m hoping that today, with the help of you, my dear readers, we can change that. Share her little teddy bear face far and wide and ask if anyone has a spare $14 a month to donate to help this lovely lady live the lifestyle she deserves.

UPDATE: Zeva is currently being placed in a foster home. Zeke is going to give it a go alone to see if it will bring him out of his sweet little shell.
Today, I would like to introduce you to a giant sleek kitty of love who comes complete with his very own tiny friend. As a team, they are known as “Zeke & Zeva,” but as individuals they are known as “Zeke” and “Zeva.” (Clever, I know.)
These two are looking for a home as a pair. They were adopted together as kittens and have been inseparable since then. Unfortunately, their first adopter no longer wanted the responsibility of having two fabulous cats bestow love and happiness upon him, so he returned them to Feral Fixers after four years. No pension. No stipend. I can only assume this family did not feel themselves worthy of the love that Zeke and Zeva were offering. That’s fine. Not everyone deserves a cat.
If you happen to like giant kitties, 21 pound Zeke is your man. Oh wait, you like little kitties? Then eight pound petit girl Zeva is for you. Can’t decide? Perfect! Adopt them both. (You have to; they come as a team.)
They are a bit on the shy side but have slowly been opening up in their foster home. All signs of trembling have passed, and these beautiful kitties can definitely blossom into confidence with the right home! Zeke loves to have his butt scratched (and really, who doesn’t?) and Zeva chirps and purrs when you pet her. Not even one outside the box incident has been reported for these two or any other behaviors unfitting for an indoor home. They also have no health issues to speak of, but their special need is to be adopted together.
Are you ready to have the super team in your life? YOU ARE? Then contact Tammy at Feral Fixers today. Hurry! Do it!

PS. Do you remember Taco Cat? The black kitty with FIV I sponsored at Tree House in honor of the passing of my friend Cotton? Good news! Taco found his home! Congrats, Taco! We are so proud of you and of your adopters for opening their hearts to a kitty with special needs.
Please meet our very first Bachelor of 2016, the one, the only, Ronald!
Here are some things that Ronald would like you to know about him:
1) He prefers to be called Ronaldo
2) His mustache is on purpose
3) He plays the guitar after midnight
4) He loves to eat
Ronaldo loves to chat, usually in Castilian Spanish and occasionally in French. He also does English for the uni-lingual readers out there. He will often be heard shouting words of multi-lingual triumph as he runs off with whatever food he can find. And you know what he does with it? He takes it into the kitchen, makes it better with delicious herbs and spices, and then he eats it. While playing the guitar. His hobbies include climbing trees, furniture, and small mountains.
Everything about Ronaldo is a success, except for his kidneys, which are a slight failure, and require some extra attention. And, although his kidneys are dependent on extra care, Ronaldo himself is independent and full of life! He’s 9 years old, had a mildly concerning polyp in his ear, and loves attention, windows, and bird watching. His zest for life was renewed when Tree House pulled him out of the CACC and gave him another chance at life! He would be a wonderful fit to any home, as long as that home has subcutaneous fluids and space for his guitar.
This guy has it all! So come one, come all to meet Ronald and give him the forever home he deserves!
