Becky Crowell Cummings

Becky Crowell Cummings

Volunteer-At-Large

Becky has always loved animals, especially cats since she was a child! Her family always had them growing up. But her passion for them truly began when she was 10 and her neighbor’s cat had kittens. Becky visited every day and one of them decided he was Becky’s. “Fluffy” followed her home, He was a solid white “Fluffy” Ragdoll mix that lived to be 15.
Becky became a volunteer 17 years ago doing TNR with Forgotten Felines of Forsyth when 2 pregnant cats were dumped at her previous job. Since then Becky has trapped over 300 kitties, many of them not feral and worked to find them homes. Becky met Lydia Hall through Kim Sawyers Kirkman when Kim and her husband Vince approached Becky while she was feeding one of her colonies. They had fallen in love with “Starz” at the colony. Starz was made “queen” when they took her home.
Becky presently assists TTR with help monitoring messages, posting on FB and making jewelry to bring in funds. Becky has fostered, transported and helped in many other ways to assist TTR. Becky has 6 kitties of her own, a dog and 8 “cat house kitties” that include TIny Tigers,Teagen and Boyd.
Becky works full time as an Office Manager for a Staffing Agency. She has 15 years experience in the construction field, owned her own business and taught children at church for almost 15 years. She has 2 grown children, a son and daughter, and 4 grandchildren, 2 girls and 2 boys, ranging in ages from 1-17.
