Cats Cradle Shelter

Like nearly all cat lovers, Gail Ventzke has loved cats since before she could remember. Her childhood days spent on her grandparents’ farm helped to seal the deal. “They couldn’t have had more than ten cats at any given time,” Gail remembered, “But to a little girl, it seemed like there was a new litter of kittens behind every other hay bale. I always loved playing with them, watching them looking for mice, or if there were no mice, for a sunny place to lie in. I wished that every cat could be so content.”
