Traveling cats spotted at the world-famous Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary in Rome, Italy. The cats have the ancient ruins just for themselves, including a sheltered spot where they receive food, medical care, and a warm bed to sleep. Founded in 1993, a large number of the cats they host are blind, disabled or recovering from illness. But despite their difficult start in life, it's obvious that the Torre Argentina cats are now happy and comfortable. Torre Argentina also promotes TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) to stabilize the number of strays, reduce the spread of FIV, FeLV, and blindness due to the herpes virus and other threats.

In other news, I just heard that Traveling Cats won the prestigious BlogPaws Nose-To-Nose Award for Best New Pet Blog. Thanks so much for believing in me and my little cat blog. As I won 400 lbs of food from Only Natural Pet to be donated to the shelter/rescue of my choice, I picked the Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary as the receiver. Hopefully they'll accept international shelters. In case they don't, which American rescue/shelter do you recommend?
