Our colony

We are currently caring for a colony of feral cats.  All have been spayed/neutered (TNR) and vaccinated.  In addition to donating to #foodforferals and #eartiptaylorcounty, our sales also support the feeding and medical care of these cats.  For updates and more info, visit us on Instagram @birdsofasweater

Officer Tom was dumped at our colony in December, 2016. He quickly became the colony alpha and watches over everyone.
