Cat Facts

Origins
Our resident felines arrive from near and far. Some are born locally, others hail from as far away as New Mexico or Florida. They are referred to us by other rescue groups, shelters, and people who know us and support our cause.

A day in the life...
In the sanctuary, we currently house about 100 cats in two main catteries. The catteries are spacious open areas with skylights, huge windows, heated floors, piped soothing music and outdoor runs. They are filled with climbing trees, toys and beds of our own special design.

Read more about the catteries on the Cattery page.

Feline leukemia
We also have a special, separate cattery for another 25 cats that test positive for feline leukemia. No cat at Home For Life® is caged. Cats who are ill and must be quarantined occupy isolation rooms that have all the same amenities as the main catteries.

Read more about our feline leukemia refuge, the Porsche and Mercedes Steffens Oasis for Feline Leukemia Cats. Meet more leukemia-positive cats on our Feline Leukemia page.

In Memory of Cedric

Cedric, the brave cat who survived acid burns, cancer, and surgery to finally find peace and loving companionship at Home For Life®, passed away in 2006.

Cedric moved many people, who frequently asked about his well-being after hearing his story. Because Cedric's journey is so illustrative of all animals' potential for renewal and forgiveness, we could not let him go without a special tribute.
