Bubbles & Birdie



Bubbles (fka Melinda) was rescued from a hoarding case of 57 cats out of Calvert. She found herself at TCAS and she was about a day from being labeled as a barn cat when she had a 180 degree personality turnaround.  She was the last of the group to be pulled from TCAS.

Birdie (fka Sheba), was pulled from TCAS as a pregnant mama, practically a kitten herself. She was a wonderful mama to her babies.

Thank goodness all were saved!


Birdie and Bubbles have become somewhat of local celebrities and ambassadors for shelter cats! They now live a great life at Wild Birds Unlimited in Lexington Park. They greet customers with lots of purrs and love.
