Tenth Life Cat Rescue ~ Saving Stray Cats in the St. Louis Area

It’s probably obvious. I have a complete obsession with cats. When it was time for our family to find a furry addition, I visited just about every adoptable cat in the St. Louis area. The process took about three months – three wonderful cat filled months…

We found Leroy at the APA and brought him home on Halloween. He was three years old at the time and thoroughly enjoyed being dressed in doll clothes by two cat-crazed little girls. It was a dream until my daughter started scratching…and sneezing…and itching…Leroy now lives with my AMAZING parents. Thank you Mom & Dad!!

Since we love cats so much, it seemed natural to use some of the proceeds from DottieQ sales to help cats who need it the most. A portion of each sale from DottieQ on Etsy will be donated to Tenth Life Cat Rescue.

Tenth Life Cat Rescue believes that every cat, regardless of emotional or physical limitations, deserves the chance at a fulfilling and happy life. Injuries, medical problems, or chronic conditions can often be prohibitively expensive for other organizations to handle. Tenth Life Cat Rescue saves stray cats and kittens in the St. Louis area, prioritizing those with special needs. You can join me in supporting Tenth Life’s efforts by making a donation, volunteering, fostering a cat or participating in one of Tenth Life’s special events.

I visited Tenth Life’s shelter on Cherokee Street a couple of weeks ago and found it difficult to leave…and now what you’ve been waiting for… cat photos! Enjoy!
