I'm a bit late posting this - my apologies...
Feral Fixers celebrated the 2015 National Feral Cat Day event by hosting an Adoption Event. Feral Fixers Board Member and Adoption Coordinator Sue gives us the details:
On Friday, October 16th, Feral Fixers celebrated National Feral Cat Day with a fund raising and adoption event at Natural Pet Market in Wheaton. Many thanks to the folks at Natural Pet Market for hosting this event! Special thanks to Susan and Sandi who helped in many ways to make the event a success :-)
We had 5 delightful kittens and 2 wonderful adult cats in attendance.
Brick and Shea - 3 mo old orange & buff tabby brothers, who drew people in with their playful nature and wonderful purr motors :-)
Arabella and Armani - 11 wk old dilute tortie and Russian Blue mix sister and brother pair. Arabella kept the event lively with her talkative nature, which turned into a wonderful purr, once you held her. Armani was a little more shy, but welcomed holding and love.
Cubbie - 4 mo old gray/brown tabby boy with gorgeous markings and blueish eyes. Cubbie was a bit shy but took the event in stride.
Angel - Sweet & beautiful all white 1 yr old girl, who really enjoyed the attention of our guests.
Smoochie - Handsome and good-natured 3 yr old black male with luxuriously soft fur - what a sweet boy!
It was a good day with a steady stream of customers and folks that came specifically for the event. T-shirts and magnets were the hot items of the day, followed closely by notebooks and catnip toys. Several folks expressed interest in the kittens or in fostering and took flyers. One family filled out an adoption applications for the kittens that were rescued from around their workplace in Addison. Another family came specifically to meet Armani.
Many thanks to Debbie and Toni for helping with this event. Debbie also transported Cheri's kittens to/from the event. Thanks to Tammy for stopping by at the beginning to kick of the event. Thanks also to Lauren, for stopping by in the evening and doing a food run!
Our next adoption event is next Saturday, 10/24, 11am-3pm at the Rice Lake Square PetSmart.
Thanks Sue and thank you to all the Volunteers and Fosters who helped us celebrate this special day!
