Written by Coconut Post

Whether you’re in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands as a visitor, a local — or always in spirit — Coconut Post keeps you posted on fun-filled news ’n views. Published monthly by Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, we’re focused on sharing our people, places, and fun things happening in paradise.

April, 2021

For decades, Flamboyan Resort has proudly served as safe haven for felines, young and old. 

Proprietors Mercedes and Michael Shelby and the entire Flamboyan team are devoted to making life better for a local community of cats. 

The on-premise “Cat Sanctuary” provides care and feeding of resident felines. Care includes visit to the vet, when needed.

If you notice the tip of a cat’s ear is clipped, that signifies it has been humanely trapped, neutered, and returned ‘home’ to live in peace. 

In addition to life-saving programs, part of making kitties feel at home on the grounds of Flamboyan Resort is giving each one a special name. 

Resort Administrator, Tracy Wayman, named Batman when he first arrived. 

“This black cat with piercing eyes showed up at the hotel right after the hurricanes in 2017,” she said. Since then, Batman has become a favorite with staff members, locals, and visitors, too.

If you are interested in adopting a resident of Flamboyan’s Cat Sanctuary, contact the resort’s front desk during office hours. Cat food, kitty treats, and monetary donations are always welcome.

Visitors are asked to refrain from feeding the cats. Rest assured, each one is well cared for and loved by staff and management — including our one-and-only Batman.
