Cat Guy Jonathan Rosenberg found his true career calling at mid-life. Turning his back on high tech, he built and now runs “Tabby’s Place,” a cage-free feline sanctuary that provides a lifelong home for special needs and hard-to-love cats. “It’s this world that’s so much more satisfying,” Rosenberg said.
The sanctuary is named for one of the great loves of Rosenberg’s life: Tabby, his cat of 15 years who died in 1999. All of the cats come from shelters and were scheduled to be euthanized. So far, he’s adopted out about 550 cats, more than 100 of whom were “special needs” cases. But even if they’re not adopted, all of them will live out their lives with medical care and love – even if they don’t really want it.
