Giving Back-Cats in Bow Ties


In early 2015 I started to think of ways I could use my business and work to give back.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have been a cat lady since birth.   I couldn’t dream of a more perfect or deserving place than Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary in Thomasville, GA.     

Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary, Inc. is an official 501(c)3 cat rescue organization on a mission that includes the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned and homeless cats. As a safe and secure no kill facility with adoption services, Miss Kitty supports spay and neuter efforts in our community for both domestic and feral cats. As a not-for-profit, volunteer-operated, no-kill / no-cage kitten and cat rescue. The shelter relies on generous donations and volunteer efforts from community members, which help to keep homeless felines safe, healthy and happy. Vaccinations are provided for every feline rescued, taking pride in the health and well-being of each cat and kitten that comes through the shelter. At any given time, Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary provides shelter, food and medical care to over 100 cats in their nine-room facility.

On behalf of every couple I provide wedding photography for Lindsi Jones Photography provides sponsorship to a cat from Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary. This sponsorship helps cover the costs of food, medical care, and other expenses associated with getting a cat ready for adoption.   Please visit for more information on adoption and to view all available cats.






In August of 2015 I began shooting a series of photographs I call “Cats in Bow Ties”.  This series features current residents, former residents, and supporters of Miss Kitty’s Feline Sanctuary.  Through these photographs I show off the beauty and personalities of these fine felines.  The purpose of these photographs are to raise awareness for shelter cats.  Millions of beautiful cats across the country just like the ones in my photographs are waiting in shelters to become someone’s best friend and companion.  My hope is that through these images 1000s of smiles and happy conversations about cats will start and SOMEONE somewhere will head to a shelter.  Since the beginning of the project Cats in Bowties has gone on the be featured on many online cat centered publications such as Caster Magazine and has be featured in nation wide pet magazine Lucky Puppy.  The project gathered local attention and has been featured on several regional news programs and in several local new paper articles.  In 2016 a public showing of the entire series was held at Grassroots Coffee in  Thomasville, Georgia attracting hundreds of viewers and spreading awareness for Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary.
