Review for Tenth Life Cat Rescue, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When we adopted Edwin O'Malley from Tenth Life in 2014, we also met and fell in love with Garfield. We wanted to bring them both into our family at that time, but transitioning Edwin into our current cat family was a bit rocky and we didn't want Garfield to wait any longer than necessary for his purrfect family. It was bitter sweet when he was scooped up by his new Pappa Mike. Mike loved and cared for Garfield for 5 years, sharing posts and stories on the Tenth Life Adopters Facebook page, where we all fell in love with him again and again.
During those 5 years, I became a volunteer with Tenth Life. I started with helping out at the adoption lounge until my dream of having a neonatal kitten nursery in my home was realized this past February. In March, I officially welcomed my first two foster kittens, Sippy Cup and Binky. While I wasn't as available to help out at the adoption lounge, I still wanted to contribute to this wonderful organization in any way possible. I soon started working with the adoptions team and taking on more administrative work.
In July of this year, our Garfield's Pappa suddenly passed away and Garfield was returned to Tenth Life. Since we were already set up to foster, we quickly scooped up this wonderful boy and brought him into our home. On August 31, we completed his adoption and officially made Garfield a member of our family.

Review for Tenth Life Cat Rescue, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My relationship with Tenth Life started in 2014 with an adoption application subsequently bringing one of the most amazing cats I've ever met into my family. From my early interactions with the Tenth Life Staff and Volunteers (Foster parents, adoption counselors and TLOC staff) I knew this was a special place. I quickly felt as though by adopting Edwin O'Malley, we were adopted into his first family, Tenth Life. Over the last 4 years, I became a regular donor and visitor to the kitties at TLOC. Tenth Life is exemplary in meeting their mission because of the love and dedication of the volunteers and staff and I wanted to do whatever I could to help them to continue to succeed. About 7 months ago, I had the realization that I needed to start giving more of my most precious commodity - my time. I currently volunteer at TLOC on Saturdays or Sundays, about once a month, but I am looking for ways to give back even more. I'm so pleased to do my part to contribute toward their mission (and care for and play with cats!) and enjoy getting to know the rest of the Tenth Life family.
