"To save the 200 kitties under my care.If I fail a whole Cat Hospice will be wiped out and only painful and sad stories will be told ."

married, 1 child
Causes: Animal Welfare


As you can image my wife and I relationship is put to the test each and everyday.

We seldom see each other. The time spent is brief and its between Chrissy scooping cat boxes ,cleaning and feeding the kitties.

The ban of having no help is destroying my wife. She has lost her life.
Her life is the kitties. Her unconditional love for them enables her to move ahead everyday.

It’s hard to accept the fact that the cats have to come over our marriage in order to maintain a clean, safe environment for them.

People have asked me “ Why do you stay” ?

Because even tho I do not have a traditional marriage to my wife were there is quality time spent together and all the perks and benefits one excepts in a marriage there is a deep bond of love for her deep in my soul.

She is my wife when I took my vows “For better or for Worst” I vowed I will live by them until the day we are no more.

I know I have many selfish faults but each day I try to become a better man and I’m not always successful. That is why I try to put her needs and the needs of the cats above my own selfish desires.

My heart is in pain for Chrissy, the way she works non stop, the powerlessness I feel because I can not seem to get any relieve for her daily drudgery.

The physical pain she endures on a daily basic with her rheumatoid arthritis and the 3 rupture discs in her back from 3 car wrecks , she was in when she was younger, brings to me to cry out to God and ask for mercy for her and I feel anger when none is given.

She is a frail woman with the inner strength of a 1,000 men.

I take the full blunt of her anger and resentment she feels for me, because I said . Yes when I should have said no in taking in the last 100 kitties under our care. I too have taken her life away.

I long for the days that we may become one and share and laugh and cuddle as a married couple.

I stay because the deep love I have for my wife which I cannot express in a traditional way and the love I have for the cats.

My daily actions speaks louder than my words. Because when I open up my mouth over my own personal anger and resentments, I hurts the one I love. I pray for God to hold my tongue so that I may not increase her burdens. But half the time it does not work.

We put the kitties first. They are helpless and we are their care givers. there are 250 hearts beats at stake here and that’s why we are one from afar.

Rick Kingston
Puffy Paws Kitty Haven We’d like to invite you to join our Monthly Pledge of Love program…a unique opportunity to make an ongoing monthly commitment to the kitties at Puffy Paws Kitty Haven.

Our goal is to seek 2500 new kitty lovers who like to donate on a monthly credit card subscription basics of starting at $10 a month.

Your monthly donations will give us enough funds to take care of the kitties and working monthly capital to properly fund the entire operation at Puffy Paws and put much needed funds in reserves to guarantee the success of Puffy Paws Kitty Haven future.

The kitties thank you from the bottom of their little hearts.


I wake up in fear everyday day. If I fail to raise the funds necessary to run Puffy Paws, than the kitties go without. That has never happen, some how, some way by your love, by the end of the night ,Chrissy and I are unloading the supplies that we need.

With the Vet, in which we pay for cost, we can never do what we do. We have everything we need to take us to the next level. The Thrift Shop, The RV, computers, video cameras for the on-line reality TV show, the Virtual Adoptions program, a future ebay store., grants opportunities, a full color printing division,Live Streaming the kitties, a possible telemarketing room.

The cards are in place. Yet until we can get everything up and running with local & on-line volunteers, I still need to ask for help everyday for funds.

I know it grows thin. But the reality of it is that Chrissy and are doing the work of 20 people on a daily basics.

With out help we not can make our goal of $250 dollars to feed the kitties.

Since it hard to get local volunteers we really need some on-line volunteers ASAP, to help us create awareness and explore different fund raising avenues .

We need folks to start a project and finished it all the way through.
I love all the ideas and we need help to make it work.

Please help if you can by going to the link. I have plenty of projects to help keep the doors of Puffy Paws open.
