I first heard about Frieda from Ann, who described her as "a super fantastic new kitty" with the best toes ever. Of course I had to investigate. When I asked Leslie to introduce me to this neat new cat, she also commented on the toes.

Here they are:

Best toes ever? I think a case could be made!

The rest of Frieda is pretty cute too:

She's quite a young girl and came to RAPS from another shelter because she'd unfortunately tested positive for feline leukemia and they didn't have the facilities to care for her.

She's super friendly, so not surprisingly has already started building herself a fan base at the sanctuary. It only takes a few moments spent in her company to get an idea why.


  1. TOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Oh she is just the most adorable thing ever! She's a cuddler if there ever was one! If I didn't already have cats I would be in such danger of taking her home with me!!!!

  3. Frieda is definitely on my list for my next visit!

    ps. I just put her on Pinterest.

  4. Just met her last week, call me the newest member of her fan club.
