Who is Denny Mitchell ?
Denny is a cat aficionado, having lived with cats all of his life. For the last fifteen years he has been a volunteer at Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited big cat sanctuaries which is located in Tampa, Florida, where he has been a tour guide for most of those years. As an “outreach ambassador” for Big Cat Rescue, he has led thousands of guests through this sanctuary, and has helped educate visitors about the nature of big cats and how so many have been abused, abandoned or neglected.
Aside from living with cats, Denny is a musician and holds a minor in music along with his degree in economics. Over the years, he has written lots of original music and has been a performer, both at the piano and as a singer. He has also been a church musician for over 30 years and often as a soloist.
Today, Denny is semi-retired, and has put together All About Cats, the focus being to educate, entertain, and engage the general public in learning about the world’s number one pet (over 600 million families live with one or more cats). His show has been performed at many different venues, from civic centers, senior living facilities, summer camps for kids to private parties, which have often resulted with cats from shelters being adopted.
All proceeds generated from these performances are shared with the various nonprofit animal rescues in the Tampa Bay area or where ever the performance is held.
