Bessy's Rescue Story

When I adopted Bessy in 1993, she was a homeless, unwanted, beautiful 1 1/2-year-old calico cat in a shelter. I can still picture her looking through her cage door with a “smile” on her face, starring at me. Right then and there “that was the cat for me.”

I later found out she had been adopted twice before but returned to the shelter. Let’s say, she had some personality quirks that needed adjusting. Bessy needed bonding time and patience and I was happy to give her that, And Bessy NEVER went back to the shelter.

Bessy was my cat for 19 wonderful years. Throughout those years she became a diabetic, developed a thyroid problem, then got severe kidney failure and passed on in June of 2011.

In honor of my wonderful, loving pet, Bessy, I have created a sanctuary where all unwanted, homeless cats are wanted, loved and provided a warm, nurturing home. Bessy’s Place is dedicated to those cats that are not as fortunate as my Bessy.

In Loving Memory & Honor of Bessy the Best!

Memorial & Honor of WINCHESTER AKA WINNY - Our Big Lover Boy!


We are all sadden to say that Winchester (aka Winny) has passed away, he had kidney failure - renal failure. Winny was about 7 years old when he was abandon at our front gate (a throwaway), he had FIV+ and was a Big Boy. We tried to get him adopted, but the FIV+ stopped his adoptions. Even though, Winny was healthy and lovable and such a great cat !! Winchester became a "MHS Resident", we had him for 5 years and he was 12 years old when he died.

Winny was a lap cat, and would sit on your lap for as long as you wanted him to. He love to play with his wand toy chasing it all around. He loved his dry and wet food - dinner was his favorite time. He loved sitting in the window in the lobby and relax. Winny had a soft meow and yellow glass eyes and handsome markings!

Winchester will always be part of us at MHS and we certainly will miss our BIG LOVER BOY... WINCHESTER !! GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN.
love you always Winchester xxxxoooo

WE WANT TO THANK ALL OF WINCHESTER'S SPONSORS,
THAT CARED FOR HIM SO MUCH!
