Caboodle Ranch- Feline Friday...on monday, because everyday is friday when you're on vacation!





 Built by Craig Grant it started as a place he and his six cats could enjoy nature safely and without the complaints of neighbors or condo boards.   But six cats led to eleven, elven to twenty-two etc, etc, and now he has roughly 500.  All rescues or donated cats who could no longer live where they'd been living for whatever reasons.  According to his website they live in 7 fenced in acres of his 30 total owned and he expands the fence as it becomes affordable.  Of course between the little "palaces" they've been given, the tree houses, the pond, the dock, the "cabin", the beds, the treats, the food, and the oddles of love, this looks like kitty heaven.  Oh and mine too!
Each of the cats are spayed or neutered, fully vetted and fed a combo of wet and dry food, not to mention turkey for thanksgiving!  They go through 100 pounds of dry food a day and 5 cases of the large wet food tins per day (that's roughly 125 large cans if he gets 24 in a case).  It takes a LOT of hard work to run this place, with the routine starting at 7am and not ending until 10pm.  Even on days when there is extra help from volunteers, and yet Craig says there are no limits to the amount of cats he'll take in.  Apparently people fly in strays from all over the states!
Caboodles is sanctioned by the Tallahassee Humane Society and Tallahasee/Madison County Animal Control and takes donations to run it.  So next time you want to given an unusual gift think of Caboodles and it's residents.  
For more info please check out Caboodles site, dude they have over 10 000 facebook fans!  Those are some popular cats!

  3. I've been, the last time for 4 days, and it's as wonderful as it looks. Lots of food, water, shelter, and vet care, when needed. I will return (I live in NJ) in January. I haven't met the two new Grand Pyrenees dogs who are being trained as guard dogs--some coyotes live in the area. Craig is a dedicated man who is living his dream.
