Years 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.
