THESE WORKING CATS LIVE THE GOOD LIFE AT WINERIES.
BY ELISA JORDAN
When Colleen M. Berg started feeding a stray cat years ago, she had no idea
he would one day become an integral part of the Virginia winery she co-owns,
Fabbioli Cellars. Instead, she was simply trying to earn his trust. After about a year
of building a relationship, she noticed he had injured his leg.
“It was December, and he was going to go through another winter outdoors
when he hurt his leg and I caught him,” Colleen said. “I took him to the emergency
vet and slowly through the years since he has come to trust us.” The cat — now
named Warren — has come to be part of the Fabbioli Cellars family. Colleen’s veterinarian estimates that Warren is approximately 12 at this point. “It was a big sign
of how far he has come when he falls asleep on his back.”
