Laura Gretch | San Francisco, CA Tattoo Artist: Dannyboy Smith at Let It Bleed Tattoo, San Francisco
The fabulous Laura Gretch (remember her from our team cattoo feature on the SFSPCA?) is adding to her ink with a special tattoo marking her as a proponent of TNR, or Trap-Neuter-Return. TNR is the most effective and humane way to deal with the cat overpopulation problem. Love this tat, Laura!

“I’ve worked in animal welfare for 4 years and I adopted the love of my life in October 2010. His name is Henry Fritzgerald, an orange maine coone mix. I wanted to get something that not only symbolized my love and affection for Henry, but also my bleeding heart for all animals. Therefore, the anatomically correct feline heart only seemed right.”
“I got my cattoo as a reminder of my drive to find forever homes for homeless cats. The cat in the picture was a cat who was up for adoption at the shelter where I volunteer. She has since found her forever home. Her name was Jellybean and her green eyes were the inspiration for the cattoo.”
