Show Off Your Love For CH Cats & Help Other CHers
Hi all – I know it seems like I’ve fallen off the face of the earth in terms of posts lately, but even though the site has gone quiet, I’ve tried to keep an ear turned to all that’s going on in the CH community.
And now that I have a moment, I wanted to make sure that you knew about something special. Have you heard about the “Keep Calm and Love a CH Kitty” t-shirts? They’re super cute, a great way to show off your love for CH cats and a great conversation starter, and what makes this even more wonderful is that each shirt that’s sold helps CH cats.
In fact, the original goal of selling 50 shirts, which raised more than $550 for the two kitties below, was recently reached (hurray!) — and you can still take advantage of this great offer and donate through the end of April.
Here’s some more information:
The campaign ends on April 30th. The shirts are $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Click here for the order form; if you live internationally, please click here. Of course, there’s no pressure to buy (I would never do that) — I just wanted you to know about the opportunity. Here’s who we’re helping:
Meet Ballerina, a two-year-old rescue who has not been spayed yet. She experiences episodes during which she attacks other cats and humans, which has led to some problems in her home. Those problems, along with not being able to afford Ballerina’s vet bills, prompted her mom to reach out to Deb Martin to find Ballerina a new home.
This campaign will help fund Ballerina’s vet visit, spay, and hopefully help them figure out her episodes.
In addition to Ballerina, this campaign will also help a one-year-old severe CH kitty named Stevie.
For the first year of his life, Stevie’s previous owners kept him outside — may I remind you, he was a young, severe CH kitty. On April 12, those owners dumped him at a kill shelter. The shelter contacted Deb, and two days later Stevie was rescued.
These funds will go toward Stevie’s much needed vet visit so he can be examined, have blood work done, receive shots, be microchipped, and he’ll soon be neutered. There may also be dental work done, as all of Stevie’s teeth are chipped from falling on concrete.
