We found Handsome Sam last January and he is a gem. Cynthia was super helpful and Handsome Sam is such a lovely addition to our family.

I was devastated by the loss of my best furry friend of 13 years and found Bee Holistic via an online search. I called Cynthia and she said she had the perfect cat for me, one who really needed to receive all the love I had to give. She told me she had rescued him from a kill shelter, lucky for both of us! She made the adoption process easy and and taught me a lot about holistic cat care. Over a year later my and my new friend are getting along great! He is healthy and living a normal, happy cat life. Thank you Cynthia for your care and dedication to matching abandoned cats with forever homes! The world needs more places like yours!

Cynthia Burke and Bee Holistic Cat Rescue are definitely 5 star. We know first hand from living near her, that Cynthia is 100% dedicated to the rescue and welfare of cats in need. She is extremely knowledgeable about feeding, care, medical issues as well as totally dedicated to trapping and neutering ferals to help the cat popular at large. People know to bring hurt or abandoned cats to her. She will nurse them back to health and try her best to find suitable homes for them.
You can't ask for more ... she gives generously on many levels ... showing the utmost respect for the individual animals . As pet owners and animal lovers... we thank the stars that Cynthia and Bee Holistic Cat Rescue and Care exist and hope many more people will support their work. You can be assured 100% of what you give goes directly to animal care.

Cynthia is just extraordinary. I was "adopted" by two kittens while away last summer, and I needed advice on how best to transport one of the kitties who had respiratory issues. None of the vets that I talked to were able to address my questions directly--it was as if they were afraid to advise me in case something went wrong. One call to Cynthia, and I knew my course of action. She was thorough and patient and talked me through all of my options for treatment and handling. One road trip later and lots of care, and Claude has recovered marvelously. Thank you, Cynthia, for your selfless care of kitties everywhere!

Cynthia of Bee Holistic is amazing. She has dedicated her life to helping cats in need. I called her when a feral kitten on my street fell down a storm drain. She came out with a 12 foot ladder, a kitten trap and some canned mackerel. Cynthia then waited three hours, going up and down the ladder, in the dark so as not to scare the kitten, until the little one was trapped and she was sure she (kitten) was okay. She then walked me through how to trap feral cats and loaned me traps so that I could trap the kitten, her siblings and mother when they were old enough. I'm so grateful that she is in my community doing the incredible work she's doing and that I'm able to support this charity.

I have referred a few friends to Cynthia's Bee Holistic Cat Rescue and Care non profit rescue for the homeless cats she rescues. I wish more people would have her knowledge of holistic healthcare for their animals. She is very committed, passionate and dedicated. Those who find their way to her are very lucky cats!

I know first hand, from having the privilege of working as a volunteer for Bee Holistic for far too short a time, that Cynthia is the most knowledgeable; humble; and committed advocate for animals I have had the pleasure to meet.
Cynthia is still my mentor and go - to person when ever I need advice and an ear to listen to my own stories, for the work I continue to do, miles away from where I began with her.
Bridges had just arrived, with his horrible seizures; Daniel was still not responding to treatment for his eyes; and so many more cats and kittens at risk continued to arrive daily, all with terrifying stories of their own; Cynthia handled it all in stride with grace, applying all her efforts towards their continued improvement; even when it was heartbreaking to watch each individual struggle, not once did she resign herself with the attitude it was 'too late', but determinedly sought another way to help that individual; when so many others would long before have given up on their respective situation, as 'hopeless'.
The most amazing fact about Cynthia is her ability to instinctively 'know' each animal; proven by the large number of cats ever present, almost all socialized with one another, with few exceptions, which is a miraculous feat if anyone has ever tried to socialize cats together without fur flying in every direction! I have been far more successful doing this myself, having watched her in action, her methods work!
I continue to learn from her by website and social media.
Bee Holistic deserves every one's support, hands down. We can all learn from her Holistic drug, chemical free care and apply those to our own lives as well. Traditional medicine still has a role necessary to care, but first commitment to natural homeopathy is critical to all of us. She is amazing, and I highly urge everyone t support her work and become active in the community, and in her work. Donna Lyle

I have adopted a cat from Bee, and referred several friends to adopt there. A total of 4 kitties so far! Excellent and caring, holistic approach.
