About Tenth Life Cats
Last week I had a chance to stop by Tenth Life Cats on a Friday afternoon. If you’ve never been, their Cherokee Street storefront is a cat/kitten paradise, always containing a cadre of adorable adoptable cats and kittens, living a life of feline luxury. Certain days and times (check their website, hours change) well-behaved visitors can come in and play and/or chill out with the cats currently in residence. No need to be in the market for adoption, the friendly volunteers on staff welcome visitors to help keep the cats stimulated, and to create awareness of their mission.
Tenth Life provides veterinary care, foster homes, and adoptive placement to stray cats and kittens, prioritizing those with special needs. We work to end unnecessary euthanasia and cat homelessness through educational outreach, community programs, and collaborative partnerships.
You can see volunteers from Tenth Life out at local festivals, markets and fairs, usually bringing some of their adoptable cats and kittens along to provide education, and hopefully make some kitty-connections that result in adoptions. In addition to the cats living in the Cherokee storefront, they also have many out in foster homes across the St. Louis region. In addition to new foster families, Tenth Life is always seeking volunteers to staff their events or storefront, and donations (they are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization).
Go to their website to find out more, and if you have a chance, stop by and play with some cats and kittens at their storefront. It’s a guaranteed pick-me-up, no matter what kind of day you’re having.
Below I have a gallery of some of the cats in the shop last week (some are available for adoption, some not, please contact Tenth Life for more information.) I have also included a video of some of the resident cats in action (or in inaction, as the case may be. You know cats.)
Hope you enjoy this peek at yet another amazing St. Louis non-profit organization. Thanks for all you do Tenth Life.
