Kitty City New Mexico in Alamogordo, NM

Kitty City NM Cat Rescue in Alamogordo NMYears ago I saw an episode of Must Love Cats and Kitty City New Mexico, a cat rescue in Alamogordo, NM, was featured.  As a UNM Lobo, I was immediately interested in the fact that this shelter was in New Mexico.  And then I got even more excited because of the shelter’s approach to “cat shelter life”.

So I reached out to Ed Denton, operator, for an interview for our site.  You can read Floppycats interview with Ed Denton of Kitty City NM here.

In October 2013, I had the fortune of being close enough to Kitty City NM that I could go for a visit with my friend, Diane.

Many of you who follow us on YouTube have already seen these videos, but for those of you who don’t – you can see them below.

Ed runs an impressively clean operation.  And has a new building in the works that he showed us – it was very impressive.

I would have no reservations about adopting a kitty from Kitty City NM – many of the cats Ed rescues from the kill shelters – so that they have a chance of finding a good home.

You can, of course, help Kitty City NM with a donation of any amount.  Donate to Kitty City NM here.

There is a Ragdoll cat that is looking for a home – she has no teeth and no claws on any of her paws.  Ed believes she was declawed on all 4 paws and then used her teeth, since she didn’t have her claws and that her owner then had her teeth removed.  Awful.  But she seems relatively happy – and Ed says that she’s an old gal – maybe 15 years old.

    Wonderful post about a wonderful man doing amazing work! Thanks, Jenny, for all of this great information!

    And… A BIG HUG & THANK YOU to YOU, Ed Denton! You are an angel to all of these kitties that you provide with shelter, food, play and love!

    That poor old Raggie gal who’s clawless and toothless. Makes my heart ache to know what she’s been through. Thank goodness for her angel, Ed!

    Truly heartwarming and faith affirming to know there is a refuge like Kitty City doing good work!

    Very warmest regards,

    Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

    I moved Dolly and Banjo into the new building the day after Jenny was here. They have a lot of room to play and explore. Banjo keeps her company, they nap together on the same bed and occasionally they will play and wrestle. Banjo is a big boy but Dolly does not let him bully her at all … even thought she can not bite him because she has no teeth Banjo still respects her. They are both big cats.

    I agree with you Patricia, I could go on and on about mean people. Operating a rescue we see it all the time. Every cat we have has a story, some are pretty intense, and that they are still alive is a miracle.

    I hope you will keep us updated jenny on the cats that get adopted because of your great post and exposure. and yes coinneach, I think that person needs to have their nails and teeth removed. how cruel and totally sickening is that? and then to just abandon the cat. I feel ashamed sometimes to be a part of this species. but then there are people like jenny and like the rest of us that love and care and know that animals are gifts, they are friends and they are precious treasures and that we are here to love and respect and cherish them. they rely on us in this world to protect and to help them. I thank the stars every day for those people and pray that someday we will all become enlightened to what it truly means to be “human”.
