Tabbys Place, an Amazing Home for Special Needs Cats

Tabbys Place, an Amazing Home for Special Needs Cats

Tabbys Place is a wonderful shelter not far from where I live. It’s a state-of-the art, beautifully designed, modern facility. Its founders designed it with one intention in mind: to create a home for special needs and older cats who would normally be put to sleep at most animal shelters and to give them a second chance at life.

Tabbys Place accepts only older cats or cats with special needs, and it makes a commitment to them for the rest of their natural lives. They also actively seek adoptive homes for these beautiful kitties.

Tabbys Place is located along Highway 202 in Ringoes, central New Jersey. When you visit the kitties there, you can see how they have plenty of room to play, wonderful cat jungle gyms and special spots to call their own, and lots of healthy sunlight. Special needs cats with illnesses are put in separate areas where they can receive the medical attention that they need round the clock.

As you can imagine, it’s expensive to care for these cats. Some of them are high maintenance because of their illnesses. Others simply need to be fed and looked after while the staff tries to find good homes for them. But it isn’t always easy finding homes for older cats, because people tend to want to adopt kittens first.

You can take a look at this month’s specially featured kitties at the Tabby’s Place website. There are several cats in need of good homes, and they also need financial support from donors.

There’s Amstel, a good-natured, plump female cat who has diabetes. Her health is good, though, and she respond very well to her daily insulin shots.

There’s Bagheera, a partially paralyzed kitty who has a little cart she uses to get around. She needs a lot of attention and care because she is so delicate.

And there’s Cheba, who had a bout with cancer, but is now healthy and cancer-free.

You can sponsor one of the kitties if you like. Donations of all kinds are welcome at Tabby’s Place. No amount is too small.

These kitties need your help!
