Dorothy North and Elizabeth Cotton were well known at the CBS Studio Lot back in the ‘90s. Guards who found abandoned cats on the lot — sometimes in trashcans — would call Dorothy and Elizabeth who would dutifully rescue them. Meanwhile, down in the Southbay city of Hawthorne, Darla Schultz was also busy saving animal lives. Neighbors and animal control officers would bring her strays, and she would find them homes.

When Dorothy North took ill, her son contacted Darla asking for temporary boarding for his mother’s 20 cats. Soon, temporary turned into permanent. Needing to find homes for the cats, Darla and Elizabeth formed “A Cat’s Tale,” named because every homeless cat has a story (not to mention a tail!)

Since that time, A Cat’s Tale has saved hundreds of cats yet some things never change. Recently, Adam and Joe, two kittens thrown in a trashcan, were rescued by A Cat’s Tale.
