The Creation of Camp Kitty
(as told by Birdie the black cat)
When I was adopted my parents already had three dogs. Needless to say they had alot to learn about cats. The more my mom (that's her giving me kisses in the picture) learned about cats she began to wonder how we received our self-sufficient reputation. Because we mostly free feed and don't have to be let outside to use the bathroom or taken on daily walks doesn't make our needs any less important. Our needs are just different.
My canine siblings have many choices when it comes to boarding, but my mom wasn't satisfied with the options for me. She set forth on a path to create a place where the needs of cats are met, but, more importantly, a place where cats can comfortably stay while their parents are away.
Let me tell you a little bit more about my mom since she'll be the one taking care of the feline guests. She loves animals. She worked at Wagalot, a dog daycare and boarding facility, for a year where she gained valuable experience in the boarding industry. She is also very active in the Atlanta animal rescue community. She has fostered six dogs and four cats (she kept the best one!) through AARF. And, for two years served as AARF's Foster Director. She also volunteers at Lifeline Animal Project's Kitty Motel.
A Message from Birdie
As you read in my mom's bio, I'm a rescue kitty. My message to everyone reading this is to please adopt a cat from your local animal shelter or rescue group. I was fortunate that I was found as a kitten with my (biological) mom and my litter so I have never reallly experienced the hardships that other cats have. But, I could've easily ended up a stray.
While I'm convincing you to adopt, may I suggest a black cat. We have great temperaments. Our hair will never show up on your black suit, your black pants, or your little black dress.
