Serenah can't remember a time when cats weren't a part of her life. All of her cats are rescues, including some tiny kittens so young they needed bottle-feeding and round-the-clock care. She has also nursed many elderly and special-needs kitties with problems such as kidney failure, chronic urinary tract infections, blindness, and epilepsy.

Serenah is also an ardent advocate for cat welfare, promoting low-cost spay, neuter and vaccination services for pets and TNR (trap/neuter/release) for feral cats.

Best Friends Animal Society Editor

Serenah served for three years as the website editor for Best Friends Animal Society's Arkansas chapter. She created and maintains a website with information on caring for senior cats.

Small Pets

Serenah's passion for animals isn't limited to cats. She's also owned mice, dogs, and birds. She trained in wildlife rehabilitation through the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council, learning skills such as tube feeding, administering injections, conducting physical exams, and wrapping injured wings and limbs. She has worked mostly with birds and rabbits.
