Cats Cradle: A home for older cats.
By Emily Buder

Cats are like potato chips, reads a sign in Bruce and Terry Jenkins’s home. You can’t just have one!

In fact, the Jenkinses have 30. They have devoted their retirement to caring for this plethora of elderly cats, transforming their home over the years into a makeshift feline senior center. “It’s kind of a big family,” says Terry Jenkins in Jonathan Napolitano’s short documentary, Cats Cradle. “It gives me the opportunity to be with more cats than I possibly could ever have imagined.”

The couple welcomes older cats that have been abandoned due to the death or sickness of a previous owner. “The cats come with different neuroses from where they were before… it’s very gratifying to see the transition from what they were when they came here to what they become,” says Bruce.

“It’s like they bloom,” adds Terry. “They get to be what they’re meant to be.”

Cats Cradle is by turns heartwarming and heartbreaking as it showcases the love that exists between the quirky couple and their horde of cats. “These cats are old, and we’re old,” says Terry. “We have a sense of those issues. We’re kind of bound together by it. Just like feeding them, petting them, and loving them, you have to help [the cats] at the end.”

Napolitano, who himself has three cats, told The Atlantic that Terry and Bruce’s devotion to each other and their cats is unparalleled. “You never know what's going to happen when you turn the camera on,” Napolitano said. “I've met people full of life, and as soon I press record, they drop dead almost immediately. Bruce and Terry have something you can't fake. There's a lot of love in that house.”

Dog blood saves cat's life.

They may be known as enemies, but one dog has put the feud aside and saved a cat’s life with its own canine blood.

Rex the Russian Blue cat came to Victoria’s U-Vet Werribee Hospital after eating rat poison at his Winchelsea home on Victoria’s Surf Coast.

“He was bleeding internally and in desperate need of a blood transfusion,” the hospital’s blood donor co-ordinator Kerry Bozicevic told 9NEWS.

With no viable car donor available, there was only one option: dog blood from greyhound, Alice.

“Dogs and cats aren’t known for being best friends, but (in this case) they’ve saved each other’s lives,” Ms Bozicevic said.

“He’s survived and he’s all purr-fect now,” Rex’s owner Meagan Mccartney said with a laugh.

Following the transfusion, the 18-month old cat required another donation from his own species, as the cat’s immune system destroys dog blood after a couple of days.

There is now a push for more cats to donate to the Werribee Animal Hospital’s feline blood bank to in case of emergencies.

“One donation will save two lives, and will be ready for any animal that needs it.”
Pre-requisites for donors include having a calm temperament, aged between one and five, and weighing more than four kilograms; they must also be healthy and up-to-date with vaccinations.”
