My name is Jennifer Reihart and I run a hospice center/rescue for cats
with FeLv. I have been doing it for over 6 years and have gotten cats
from all over the eastern US. OH, NY, NJ, PA, NC, and even as far as
Texas. We have a huge house, and take in cats from different areas, and
various backgrounds and give them a place to call home. I am
independent, my husband and I do this on our own, and out of love for
these special cats. They have free run of the home, and get lots of
love and attention. We currently have 13, and they all have their own
space, however at night our bed is covered in cats.
I have gotten several cats from FeLv.org and have given them a loving
home. We have had 3 live past 9, most live until 5 or 6, we have one
that is 7. We don't do anything special, they get good cat food, wet in
the morning-dry throughout the day. But what I think is our secret to
having them live longer is lots of love. they are all used to being
petted, kissed, and made over. Each one has it's own special
personality, that's what I love about cats, no two are the same.
I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. We have worked a little
with the Marley fund in NC, but mostly we take cats from various rescue
groups and individuals who are desperate to find a good home for their
cats. We do insist they bring the cat's here so that they can see the
love and attention we give the cats. This set's their mind at ease, and
makes the transition easier.
