I came across Martin on a number of occasions after I started volunteering at the sanctuary, snoozing on a comfortable shelf by one of the windows in the double wide. I first really took notice of him and got a sense of the sweet old guy's personality one day when I came across him gently grooming Princess, who couldn't have been happier.

Here's Martin's story, from Leslie (originally published in The Love Blog, July 2009):
"Martin was found stray in Richmond and taken to the shelter we operate for the City of Richmond. Because he was an older cat with some health problems, our other shelter wasn't able to find a home for him. We are so fortunate to have our sanctuary available as a permanent home for cats like Martin who are difficult to adopt."
Update November 6, 2010: Sad to report that this sweet old guy has now left us.
