Feline Depressed? Lonely? Clawstrophobic?

This Cat Lover’s Purradise Is for You!



Welcome to the Funny Farm! We believe we have assembled the finest group of felines in the world for you to peruse. Please enjoy your time down on the farm. You are certainly welcome here.

About the Funny Farm

The Feline Funny Farm was established in Royal Oak, Michigan, over 70 years ago. In Shawna’s earliest childhood there were Tangy and Benjy, indoor/outdoor kitties who each disappeared in turn. Then came Captain Tinker, Tinkerbelle, her daughter Whiskers, Punkin, and Christopher. For a time, the Funny Farm existed at additional sites as well. These included Oberlin, Ohio; Roseville, Michigan; Mount Clemens, Michigan; and Detroit. Since late 1997, it has been consolidated again in Royal Oak.
