We join in the fun on Giving Tuesday with our “Black Cat Giving Tuesday” fundraiser each year. Giving Tuesday is on December 3rd – click on our Giving Grid and make a donation, post a favorite photo at the same time! We have pledges of $3,000 to be matched, please help us to our total goal of $6,000. This fundraiser will continue until December 31st but please don’t keep us in suspense, donate early!
To kick off Giving Tuesday, we will be hosting a Portillo’s for Good event at the 1500 Butterfield Road, Downers Grove location from 5 to 8PM on 12/3! For this event you don’t even have to get out of the car – flyer works in the drive-thru too, mention it to order taker when you place your order. Get three chocolate cakes to stash in the freezer – no one will know! Come inside and look for other Feral Fixers, we had a great time last year. Burgers, shakes, hot dogs, salads, carnivore, vegan & gluten-free, something for everyone! Our goal is $200 in sales. Share the info with everyone you know – make this the best Portillo’s for Good we’ve had yet! See you there!
How ‘bout this weather! So glad we cut off trapping when we did! We still have friendlies on hand and a couple kittens had absolutely no interest in coming inside. A few kittens have some flaky skin and we’re making sure it is not ringworm, some others have had some health issues and we’re going to wait another week to make sure they are up for surgery. On 11/14, we sent 4 friendlies and 2 ferals to ADOPT, with 2 males and 4 females.
On November 12th, Jackie went to GEAH for spay. A caretaker had brought her inside with her kittens back in August. Around the time that the kittens were old enough to be on their own, Jackie developed a rodent ulcer.
It is no wonder that instead of saying eosinophilic granuloma complex, people use the term “rodent ulcer” to refer to this condition. We needed to wait to spay Jackie so the antibiotics and steroids had a chance to heal her lip. On Tuesday she went thru her spay just fine and of course had become very friendly with this extra time!
This brings us to 26 cats for November, 704 for the year and 11,675 since 2007.
