I've heard people say it's not good. The ONLY way to check out any "sanctuary" is by visiting it yourself. NEVER send ANY cat to somewhere you have not visited personally. No limit on the number of cats is DEFINITELY a red flag.

Do any of you know about Caboodle Ranch in northern Florida?? It looks great on line, but could still be pretty bad as they certainly won't be taking pictures that make it look anything less than wonderful! They only charge $150. per cat, and say they have no limit as to the number they can take and this raises a red flag to me. If any of you people in the northern Florida area have any info about Caboodle please let me know.
