With the cold, wet weather upon us, community members and businesses are banding together to make sure the kitties in a feral cat colony near Chemainus keep getting their hungry little bellies filled.
Chemainus CATastrophe is leading the effort, as always, with huge contributions from supporters such as Riot Brewing, Doc the Barber and Chemainus Rotary.
“Your donations and participation in the cause to keep the kitties fed has been truly wonderful over these past years since we started the feeding effort,” noted CATastrophe’s Lana Halme.
And during November, a special effort is being made for Chemainus CATastrophe as the charity of the month by Angela Seguin from Krazy Kritter Kookies at the Chemainus Public Market.
There is a donation jar to collect funds for the kitties until the end of the month and Wednesday, Nov. 25 is a special day with 15 per cent of sales going to Chemainus CATastrophe.
Have a Heart Kookies are also available for $5 each, with all the proceeds from sales going to Chemainus CATastrophe.
In addition, anyone who spends more than $10 in the store on Nov. 25 will be entered into a draw for a one-of-a-kind hand made wooden cat clock, donated by Geoff Workman.
Donations of wet and dry food are welcome going into the winter. All food is welcome, but the kitties have acquired a taste for the Costco purple bag brand.
Any food or cash donations can be dropped off at Riot Brewing or Doc the Barber during business hours. Etransfers can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bottle donations in clear plastics bags are accepted for the cause at the Ladysmith Bottle Depot with #2507016701 at the kiosk. There’s a limit of six bags per visit for the bottle depot donation program and there’s no need to sort, but the bottles and cans must be clean and dry.
