Beth and Howard have no children together, and Beth focuses her time on caring for cats and kittens in need. She has dedicated "foster rooms" at all of her homes. She's also got a social media presence solely focused on the needs and care of animals. 

"Her love for animals began at a young age and has grown into a mission to personally foster and rehabilitate abandoned felines to be adopted and welcomed into new and safe forever homes," her website reads. "Over the past six years, Beth has provided spay or neuter and foster care and facilitated adoptions for over 1,300 unwanted cats and kittens."
