TinyKittens and Shelly Roche
« on: May 11, 2018, 11:33:18 am »
I'd love to have this discussion in which we can share our mutual love of TinyKittens.com. For those who are not familiar, TK was started by Shelly Roche, an American who married a Canadian and now lives in Langley, BC, Canada, a rural area outside Vancouver. She started feeding a colony of feral cats in a nearby area, a place now termed the Happy Forest. It has grown into a huge worldwide phenomenon as her efforts have expanded to include the spaying/neutering of 91 percent of this 200+ cats colony, management and assistance of other colonies, savior of mothers and kittens, an astonishing adoption rate of formal ferals, and much more. If you have ever wanted to believe that small bits of help in one corner of the world can and do influence events and people far beyond that corner then Shelly is the person who can do just that.

Right now, she has four of her own (the teens and the so-called Miracle Kitten, Cassidy), an ancient tom named Grandpa Mason who has turned into a major feline celebrity, three adult former ferals looking for new homes, one adult feral who isn't happy with humans and will be released to her friends as soon as her spay heals, and two very bonded mothers with nine kittens, one of whom has a cleft palate (and whom Shelly feeds every two hours) who has won my heart and thousands of others.

So ... after all that, who else is addicted to TK? I am hoping this thread will stay and be added to as the cats in her care come in, get helped, and go to new homes or to their home in the forest much better.

I've been a Tinykittens fan since Firefly! I found her through FDJ's Critter Room & I follow both a lot. Kitten therapy keeps me sane! I also follow Margo's Menagerie, Cassie's Kitten Kastle, Sarah's Kitten Cuddle Room & several others.

I follow Grandpa Mason on FB after reading a story about him with his first batch of kittens. He's such an adorable guy and you can see how he's slowly warming up to Shelly.

He's still got a good punch, though. I suppose he has a reputation to keep.   :D

Today around 5:00-5:30 PST Pansy passed away. She had been taken in for biopsy then was rushed to the ER. Gwen and another of the regular snugglers were with her when she died as Shelly had to go home and feed Aura. You can still catch Shelly talking about (and crying) on the kitten cam around 6:30.
