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;
A handmade cat bed from our volunteer, Jeana;
A packet of note cards featuring images of cats from our foster house, handmade by our volunteer, Helene;
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.
We would like to thank our sponsor for Wild Love 2022, Practical Tales Publishing, and everyone who has entered Wild Love so far. If you haven’t done so, visit our “Support Fabulous” page. Remember, you have the month of February to make your donation and support our work with community cats.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, it is time for our annual Wild Love Fundraiser. Wild Love honors the power of love to gentle even the most frightened, feral animal, a small miracle we have seen so often in our experience with cat rescue and with the cats in our own foster house. For this year’s Wild Love Sweetheart, we bring back our beloved Elizabeth, the same beauty who graces the banner at the top of our web site.
Wild Love’s rules are simple: anyone who donates a total of $25 or more to Fabulous Felines between January 1 and February 28 is automatically entered in the drawing for a Wild Love gift basket. We are still putting this year’s gifts together, but the centerpiece will be a stay-in with your sweetie night, with gift card for pizza from Dion’s and a box of chocolates.
We are also delighted to have several gifts that were hand-made by our talented volunteers. Jess has crocheted a beautiful, warm winter scarf. Jeana has donated a hand sewn cat pad similar to those shown.
And, we will include a packet of Helene’s notecards featuring the cats in the foster house. We are also working to include several more items, so stay tuned.
So donate soon. Our drawing will be the first week of March!

A few weeks ago, we posted some beautiful pictures of the cats in our foster house taken by Greg Tessler. Shortly afterwards, Helene, another of our wonderful volunteers turned these images into note cards, with a cheerful greeting in each card such as “Thinking of you,” or “You’re too kind.”
We are offering these to you in packets of 6 cards with envelopes for a $15 donation.
Each packet of six cards is a different selection of images of cats in the foster house, and is tied with a colorful ribbon or twine. A few examples of the cards and their contents are shown below (click on an image to see it in detail):
