Fur & Feathers flies the coop

-A A +A
By Kelly LeVan

Next time you see a sick skunk or find a ring-tailed cat in your tool shed, don’t call Bob and Cathy Anderson, the force behind Fur & Feathers Rescue & Rehabilitation. The couple’s longtime business is now closed.

Bob has already left for Texas, and Cathy will follow soon behind.

For the Andersons, the move is very positive.

“I’ve always wanted a mini-horse ranch,” Cathy said. “Bob’s always wanted to have space for his wallabies. That’s the main reason we’re leaving town. We want a place where our animals can have some space.”

The Andersons’ Los Alamos home was set on a third-acre plot. The couple will have 16 acres at their new home, located southeast of Dallas.

“We’re excited,” she said. “We’ve got the 16 acres and there’s trees and pastures … We’re looking forward to finally retiring.”

However, the Andersons’ departure leaves Los Alamos in a lurch, especially in terms of mammal rescues.

The nonprofit Fur & Feathers has functioned for more than 18 years, providing free rescue and rehabilitation to wild and exotic animals that are sick, injured, abandoned or in need of a safe home.
