Bessy's Rescue Story

When I adopted Bessy in 1993, she was a homeless, unwanted, beautiful 1 1/2-year-old calico cat in a shelter. I can still picture her looking through her cage door with a “smile” on her face, starring at me. Right then and there “that was the cat for me.”

I later found out she had been adopted twice before but returned to the shelter. Let’s say, she had some personality quirks that needed adjusting. Bessy needed bonding time and patience and I was happy to give her that, And Bessy NEVER went back to the shelter.

Bessy was my cat for 19 wonderful years. Throughout those years she became a diabetic, developed a thyroid problem, then got severe kidney failure and passed on in June of 2011.

In honor of my wonderful, loving pet, Bessy, I have created a sanctuary where all unwanted, homeless cats are wanted, loved and provided a warm, nurturing home. Bessy’s Place is dedicated to those cats that are not as fortunate as my Bessy.

In Loving Memory & Honor of Bessy the Best!
