WHAT IS MEPHIT FUR MEET?
Mephit Fur Meet started in the 90’s as a pizza party in GrowlTiger’s
home in Memphis, Tennessee. It outgrew his home and he moved it
to a Howard Johnson’s Inn in East Memphis.
After a few hotel changes over the years, Mephit Fur Meet came to
its new home in 2009, the Whispering Woods Hotel & Conference
Center in Olive Branch, Mississippi.
Even with the changes throughout the years, one thing that remains
the same is that Mephit Fur Meet feels like home to many, as well as
a family reunion you can actually look forward to!
FOOD!!! YOU DON’T LEAVE HUNGRY!

and I’m currently living in North Texas. I have been drawing
for most of my life and attended an art school/college back
in England. I’ve also recently been featured on the official
Warcraft website in a Community Spotlight!

or breed their cats.
Tiger Haven is located in eastern Tennessee and usually affords
MFM a couple of their long time workers to be with us at MFM and at
the charity auction. These workers will happily answer any
questions you have about Tiger Haven. These people work hard
everyday to ensure these big cats have a safe

other means, all goes directly to Tiger Haven to be used to help
