Cat habitat

One hundred twenty five cats live in eight buildings on sixteen hectares of land in St. Albert.

During a recent tour of the place, cats came running up, meowing in greeting as the Volskys moved from place to place. One stuck a paw through a fence, as if wanting to shake hands.

The couple introduced each cat by name, with a little background information.

“This is Rascal,” said June. “He was attacked by a Rottweiler and his owner took him to the vet to be euthanized, but the vet sewed him up and we brought him here.”

“This is Molly Malone,” said Walter. “She’s blind in one eye and she was going to be put to sleep because nobody wanted her.

“This is Sammy. He’s so scared. They had him for sale in a pet store and I don’t know what they did, but they ruined his life. Look at him peeking out over there.”

Walter, who’s 60, joked that remembering all the cats’names helps ward off dementia.

There’s a second article in the Edmonton Journal, and you can check out Forget Me Not Cat Sanctuary online.
