We are delighted to say the quilt has been sold! The proceeds from this sale will help us care for the cats in our care, and support our broader efforts at helping lost and community cats.
A quilting artist has donated a stunning, handmade quilt to Fabulous Felines to help raise money for the kitties’ care.
Quilting is an ancient art—an Egyptian ivory carving from 35th century BC shows a Pharaoh wearing a quilted cloak—and continues to inspire gifted artists. This brand new quilt features cat motifs and would be most appreciated displayed as wall art using a quilt hanger.
The rich colors are vibrant, and in the right light, the threads seem to glisten. In addition to the beautiful front, the back is also sewn in amazing detail. There is a repeating image of cats decorating the reverse side. This quilt is 50″ x 60″.
Every so often, the cats in our foster house show us something that just makes us feel good. This image (taken by our volunteer, Stephanie S.) shows four of our foster cats lying together in front of a window. It wasn’t planned or staged—it was just the way they chose to be together and enjoy the sunlight. The cats are (from front to back) Thumbelina, Alison, Alistair, and Mona Lisa.
Our hearts go out to Nancy and Roger, long time supporters of Fabulous Felines, on the passing of their beloved companion, Reiki.
As is so often the case, Reiki was at the animal shelter and was scheduled for termination. We asked Nancy and Roger for help, and they rescued this “skinny and scared” little cat. As Roger described it: “We put the $10 down to adopt him . . . We could not have received more love for $10.” Soon, Reiki became part of their lives as only a loving animal can. He shared their home and affection for twelve years before illness took him from them.
Our hearts, gratitude, and blessings go out to Roger and Nancy . . . and to beautiful Reiki.
We held our Wild Love drawing in early March, and the winners of our gift package were longtime supporters Leigh and George. One of the great things about being part of Fabulous Felines is that it gives me a chance to meet some wonderful people. I met them at a nearby restaurant to deliver their prizes, and we lingered over a long lunch, sharing stories about our lives, our work, and our love of cats and other animals.
Leigh and George are typical of the wonderful people who have supported Fabulous Felines over the years, and we would like to extend our deepest thanks to everyone who has made our work possible.
Our prizes for our annual Valentine’s Day celebration, Wild Love 2022 are all set, and this year is shaping up to be especially fun, with several of the prizes being hand made by our own volunteers.
Anyone who donates $25 or more to Fabulous Felines between January 1 and March 1, 2022 is automatically entered in a drawing for a gift package consisting of:
A $20 gift card to Dion’s Pizza;
A box of assorted chocolates;
A warm winter scarf hand crocheted by our volunteer, Jess;

Two tickets to see The New Mexico Philharmonic’s Classical Mystery Tour on April 16. This is a special event features music by the Beatles performed members of the Broadway show, Beatlemania, and the NM Philharmonic. The tickets were generously donated by Brenda C.
