Bunny Hofberg, the founder of Frankie's Feline Fund, has owned cats for over 30 years. In 2005 Bunny became a volunteer at the ASPCA specializing in cat socialization and adoptions. Bunny is also an active volunteer with JASA, Jewish Association for Service for the Aged's Pets Project. It was through the work she did for both of these organizations that she fell in love with older cats. They are the forgotten.
All of Bunny's cats are rescues, but Frankie was special. Of all the cats he was the first with an actual euthanasia date. When Bunny adopted him, Frankie was an eight year old cat and diabetic. As a kitten he was adopted from the city shelter, and at seven he was surrendered. It was discovered after he was adopted as an adult that he was diabetic. A plea went out to save his life and Bunny answered. 8 months later she heard about another young cat that was diabetic and about to be euthanized. She took him in too and welcomed Johnny into her home. Frankie passed away in 2011, but his legacy - the legacy of all the love and joy a senior or special needs cat can give - lives on in the fund dedicated to his name.
