Remember how I told you about my furiend Lincoln? He is an alumnus of Tenth Life Cats, which is an organization in St. Louis that specializes in taking care of cats who nobody else would help. A diabetic cat like me probably would be able to find a place to take care of him while he’s waiting for his furever home. But a cat like Lincoln probably would never have made it if it wasn’t for Tenth Life.
They have a wonderful mission. Tenth Life “saves stray cats and kittens in the St. Louis area, prioritizing those with special needs.”
Tenth Life was founded in 2009, and for four years, it has been an organization with no actual physical location. Cats needing help were housed in volunteer foster homes. Now, Tenth Life is moving into an actual physical location. This will give them a physical presence, a central location, and a testing ground for their future shelter operations.
This facility is a temporary one, which will house Tenth Life until their permanent shelter is built. And their facility will give special needs cats like me having plenty of sunny windowsills, comfortable beds, and perches with great views until they find their furever home. Hey, wait a minute. How come I don’t have those things. My human and I need to talk.
But even Tenth Life’s temporary facilities are nice. Take a look at them. Sure beats the typical cages of an animal shelter, doesn’t it? And see all those nice humans enjoying the facilities? That’s because they were very helpful to Tenth Life and they got to preview the facilities before it opened.
One of the stars of the event? None other than our good furiend Lincoln! Here he is, testing out one of the desks at Tenth Life’s facility. What do you think? Is he doing a good job of pretending to be a human boss? Or is he just too cute to do that?
If you’d like to learn more about Tenth Life and all the good they do to help special needs cats like me and Lincoln, it’s easy to do. You can visit their website. They also have a Facebook page that you can like. And you can always follow them on Twitter.
It is amazing, isn’t it, that you humans have invented technology that allows this diabetic cat to tell you all about Tenth Life. But doesn’t it make you happy?
