Caboodle Ranch Offers Rest for Weary Cats
03/04/2009 AT 03:00 PM EST
Today, Caboodle Ranch is a 30-acre property and home to nearly 500 unwanted felines. Grant has financed care for his cats completely out of pocket, from buying the land they use to spaying and neutering all of the Ranch's residents. The land features its own little network of buildings, including a city hall, police department, chapel, elementary school and Wal-Mart (complete with shopping carts!). There's even a "Cat Nap Inn," where kittens can rest in lakeside cottages. Though expenses can run high – sometimes $6,000 per month for care – Grant is confident in his abilities to keep his sanctuary going. And to the naysayers, he says, "I think I'm supposed to be doing this and it comes at a time in my life when I can give it 100 percent."
