On a quiet day, a homeless cat once walked these groundsA chance encounter was madeIn time a friendship formed, a bond made, and a forever home found.From that humble beginning, fate took commandAnd a once displaced cat, unknowingly to all, planted a seed of inspirationthat would one day blossom into a dreamThis building stands as a testament to all cats across the world.From those that have crossed the rainbow bridge to the yet unborn kitten.This home embodies the abandoned & forgotten, equal to that of the loved & remembered.A house that embraces the healthy, while gently cuddling the handicappedTo some this may just be a another buildingYet to the volunteers, staff and cat lovers it represents more then just a simple structureIt stands as a tireless monument, a pillar of strength.A mirror reflection of each these individualsAn unbroken chain going from hand to paw, hand to pawAnd so like a seashell containing it’s magical sounds of far off ocean wavesOnce you enter this“building”If you listen quietly and let yourself dream, you can hear contented purrsPurrs from centuries departed pharaonic cats, on through to present day city straysEach standing proudly, clapping their paws, for they all know well.There is no such way to enter this“building”be it cat or humanand not be overwhelmed by the immeasurable love & devotion that built itFrom hand to pawWe welcome you to“The House That Jonah Built”
