Holly thought she'd only ever own two cats at a time, but she now has five (three who are permanent residents plus two foster kittens).


She has a soft spot for special needs cats and finds room for those kitty cats in her heart and home --- even if that might make her a cat lady.

First came Solomon.
He belonged to a friend of a friend who was moving out of town. Holly knew she could give this older fella a good home, so she adopted him.

Then came Monster Boo.

Holly saw him on the website of the Whitecourt Homeless Animal Rescue Foundation (WHARF).  He was a stray who'd been found all alone on a rural road in the middle of winter, when the temperature had dipped down to -30°C (-22°F).

Holly knew he belonged with her.

Then it was time for Brenda.

Holly saw he was up for adoption via Zoe's Animal Rescue. They posted the cat as a female, who had been living in a house with 20+ other cats. Once saved from this hoarding situation, Holly brought the cat home.

After a vet visit, it was revealed that Brenda was a male cat. But the name stuck!

Most recently there are two foster kittens from the Edmonton Humane Society. Part of Holly's role as a foster mom with these kitties is to name them.

She's decided on Donut for this little orange guy.
