Cat Sanctuary

Proprietor Mercedes Shelby is deeply devoted to saving the lives of local community cats.
That’s why the property provides a safe, nurturing outdoor sanctuary
to a colorful mix of domestic and feral felines.

Our resort staff enjoys taking turns naming our four-legged residents & will happily introduce you to Lovey, Diva, Tom, and others.

TOM

The senior member of our original feline family, this mellow male is affectionally known as “the old man.”

THUNDER SOCKS

A friendly and fun male, he earned a second name for distinctive white markings on each paw.  

LOVEY

Named for her loving demeanor, she is a sweet female brindle, always eager to cuddle.

DIVA

This attention-getting female calico seems to know instinctively multi-colored markings set her apart.

I WANT ONE!

We want each of our adorable felines to live the best life possible. If you are interested in adopting a resident of our Cat Sanctuary, fill out the contact form below and we’ll get back to you with more information shortly.

“From the beginning, our property has proudly served as a safe haven for felines — young and old — from every part of our island community. I think it’s especially important to emphasize that we participate exclusively in life-saving programs. After the 2017 hurricanes, our Cat Sanctuary population increased substantially because many pets were left homeless. We feed, nurture and care for them all — I believe deeply it’s the right thing to do.”

Why are their ears clipped?

When you see the tip of a feral cat’s ear is clipped, that signifies it was humanely trapped, neutered, and returned ‘home’ to live in peace.

Would you like to help our cause?

Please contribute to the Cat Sanctuary Donation Box in the front lobby. This helps us feed and care for our feline residents here at Flamboyan on the Bay.
Thank you!
