In May, CC4C attended ARF’s Animals on Broadway in Walnut Creek. This year was a great opportunity for our members to talk with the public about how we can work together to help homeless cats and kittens in our neighborhoods.
It was wonderful that many visitors to our booth signed up to foster kittens, and to help us in other ways. We were really pleased since this season has been one of the busiest kitten seasons ever. And to top it off, our raffle ticket sales were bigger than ever!
Our sweetest 8-week-old kitten ambassadors charmed everyone who visited, but unfortunately none went home to new adopters. Our kittens truly worked wonders at doing what they do best—making you feel like you are the most important person in the world!
A great big hug of thanks goes to Pet Food Express which allowed us to pick out what we wanted for our kitten-themed raffle prize. The winner of this year’s prize including a cat tower, Intelligent Litter Box, drinking fountain, and umpteen toys and other things valued at $450 — was Theresa and Rick Ballardo of Newark who have four cats that surely will enjoy the prizes.
Our second grand-prize came to us from the award-winning artist Linda J. Casey, who created a neon-bright quilt that featured purple dogs, multi-sized balls, and dog bones in a rainbow of colors. Every inch of the quilt was covered in stitching! It was beautiful! Meera and Anthony Attride of Concord were the lucky winners of the quilt.
Please visit us and see our kittens and cats at our three adoption sites on the weekends. Our cats are all fostered in our homes, so we know their personalities and temperaments very well and we can help you select the right cat for your lifestyle.
CC4C’s hours are 1-4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays at PETCO in Walnut Creek on California Avenue; Pet Food Express in Lafayette on Mt. Diablo Boulevard; and on Contra Costa Boulevard in Pleasant Hill.
We hope to see you!
