Sarah, one of our wonderful volunteers captured this image of Sylvester, one of our favorite cats at the foster house, snuggled up in a blanket. We wanted to share it, because his little peekaboo perfectly captures Sylvester’s personality. He is very shy, but also likes attention.
On my visits to the foster house, I have often had him come out of hiding and jump up on my lap for attention. Just as often, he hides when I come in, and I may not see him at all. In short, he is a friendly cat who likes attention on his own terms. I guess that just means he’s a cat.
If you would like to meet Sylvester, or become a volunteer, contact us. In the meantime, enjoy a little peekaboo with Sylvester.
Being a cat rescue, we tend to take pictures of cats. Lots of pictures of cats. Because we take so many pictures, every now and then, one of them turns out especially well. Mona Lisa is one of our foster cats, and as you can see, is a very beautiful little lady. We caught her inside one of your cat trees, and the color of the carpet lining the tree, the light in the room, and her fur all seemed to come together to give the picture the look of an old master’s painting. Eat your heart out, Rembrandt.
Mona Lisa is one of the cats in our foster house. She came to us frightened, and untrusting, but has responded to the love of our volunteers. She is friendly, and she loves to be petted and brushed.
If you would like to meet Mona Lisa, or become a volunteer, please contact us.
We all have experienced the deep emotional connection we form with our companion animals. Many of us have eperienced the deep sense of loss we feel should we lose a beloved pet. Perhaps it is because the connection we have with our animals is non-verbal and so directly emotional, but these losses bring about a unique kind of grief that is particularly difficult to manage. This talk will provide you with a better understanding of how to cope with the emotions of an impending loss of a pet. It will also discuss how we can access services to help us through our grief, and to celebrate our best pal’s life.
Ann Beyke, M.A. LPC, is a counselor in private practice in Albuquerque, providing individual and group counseling on the emotional cost of losing a pet. You can learn more about Ann and her work by visiting her web site, and by joining us for this talk.

Wild Love 2017 has drawn to a close, and we want to thank everyone who participated in it. Wild Love is one of our favorite annual activities, because it focuses on the affection we have for all the animals we help, and also because it reminds us of the incredible generosity of all the people who have become part of the Fabulous Felines Community.
This year, our two winners were Sharon Hall, who won Fanny’s Package, and Karen Sprague, who won Elizabeth’s package. Of course, the real winners were the cats we are helping with your generous donations, and all of you, who have opened your hearts to these beautiful animals.
Wild Love is our Valentine to all the wonderful cats we have helped at Fabulous Felines, and the power of love to gentle even the wildest, most frightened animal. Just donate $25 or more to Fabulous Felines during the months of January and February, and you will be eligible to receive a Fabulous Valentine’s Celebration Package.
