We have news on several fronts and because you are all supporters in one way or another of Community Cats at the Catty Shack, you get to be included!
Tiger Lily and Ava, now Salem, were adopted yesterday! They were rescued as tiny kittens in a group of 11 kittens we pulled from an unhealthy situation last Spring. It takes awhile for some to find the right home but we feel that these girls have landed in a sweet spot for them. And they got to go together.
Also, Lightning, now Walter, was adopted and has a wonderful loving home with a dog friend. We took Walter and his siblings as young kittens from another rescue who deemed them to be too feral to handle. We are still working with sister, Tess, as she is shyer but brother JoJo is just fine. Never give up and never write any one off. I firmly believe there is a place for every kitty and you just have to hang on until it's found.
We have a GoFundMe campaign to raise enough money for a down payment for a facility of our own. It is under we-need-a-new-Shack at the GoFundMe site. We are trying for 50,000. so you can see we have our work cut out for us. Tell anyone you think might be interested. The interesting thing with crowd funding is even small amounts add up and make it possible to reach the goal.
We are also on Instagram now so follow us if that is your sort of thing. Along with Facebook it is a way to connect with people who wouldn't know about us otherwise. We even have followers from Japan!
Our website has had a change of web masters as Sean has gotten too busy to keep up with all our postings so we are now being handled by Nick DeMarino who publishes the 5enses magazine here in Prescott. He also happens to be my son in law and his wife and daughter volunteer at the Catty Shack!
We are also working on a YouTube channel and have some videos of our current foster kittens posted there. That should be a fun addition.
We have new volunteers and new kitties coming into the Shack. Come by to meet them both! And as always, thank you to our volunteers who make it possible for us to rescue. You are so valuable to us all.
As always, I thank all of you and will finish with pictures of our last adoptions.
Susan and Everyone at the Shack
