How living with 21 felines over the course of five decades has enriched one animal lover's life: This vivid memoir unites fond reminiscence with practical guidance for others who live with cats. The author shares the rewards and education -- an abundance of joys, sorrows, smiles, trials, comforts, chores and unfailing surprises -- afforded by her four generations of cats. Together, they taught intriguing lessons about the nature, needs, behavior, quirks and care of their inimitable species -- and invaluable bonds of affection and mutual dependence.

Our Mission Statement:
Alley Cat Rescue is helping to solve the crisis and tragedy of unwanted and abandoned cats.
Alley Cat Rescue (ACR) works to protect cats on several levels: locally through rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of cats and nationally through a network of Cat Action Teams. ACR is dedicated to the health, well-being and welfare of all cats: domestic, stray, abandoned and feral. ACR also assists the international animal community.
PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR COMPANION ANIMALS. This will save millions of lives, and stop the killing in the nation's shelters. Six million healthy, unwanted animals are killed in shelters each and every year. ACR is striving to lower these numbers and to put an end to the suffering and unnecessary death of innocent animals. ACR also works to PREVENT feral colonies from forming. Spaying and neutering outdoor cats helps to stop new cats from joining and forming feral colonies.
Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic
Alley Cat Rescue is offering a low-cost spay/neuter clinic to low-income residents of Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Clinic for Feral Cats
Alley Cat Rescue operates a TNR program for feral cats. Feral cats are sterilized, eartipped, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and are treated for internal parasites and fleas. For more information on TNR, scheduling an appointment, and borrowing a trap, please check out our Programs.
ACR has many domestic cats in need of good homes. Please visit the PETsMART at 12020 Cherry Hill Rd. in Silver Spring, MD to meet our cats up for adoption or call (301)586-8262 to speak to a manager about our cats. You can also view them online at Petfinder or Pets911. Barn homes are also needed for feral cats; please check out our Programs for more information.
