Crafts and Cats

posted in: Events, Fundraising | 0

We are trying a new event: Crafts and Cats! Saturday, April 29th, 2:30-4pm, $20.

If you enjoy knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, hand-sewing, adult coloring, or other non-messy crafts, bring what you’re working on and spend an afternoon with the cats and other crafty people! We’ll have Keurig beverages on hand along with some treats. You bring your current project.

Please no paints or tiny objects that could be swallowed by the cats. This event is for ages 15 and up.

You can register HERE.

It feels like we have a lot going on at the lounge beyond the regular business of visitors and adoptions! Chelcie was adopted today, Milan and Paloma go home tomorrow, and Mittens and Cami have an approved application! That is an excellent start to the month.

We’ve added an Events page to help guests find what’s happening more easily.

All month long we’re offering Valentines hearts again. For $5 you can get a 6″ paper heart to honor a cat you love. For $25 you can get two 6″ hearts plus a handmade heart-shaped pillow one of our supporters has made for us. All of the paper hearts will be displayed in our front windows for the month of February.
