Wendy Erskine did not wake up one day and decide to foster cats in her house. “I fell into it,” Ms. Wendy said of her cause, Wendy’s Feline Friends, a non-profit, cat adoption organization. Ms. Wendy is a Colonial Beach local who rescues community cats and provides them an incredible home until a permanent family adopts them. She acquires her feline friends through many avenues, including taking homeless pets off the streets. Her home is shared with 50 cats, and her live-in helper.

She has several rooms in her home dedicated to the cats that have scratching post towers for them to climb on. Ms. Wendy also has an outdoor space where the cats are free to climb trees and wander around outside.
