Don’t Miss Our Joshua Creek Tea!

Don’t Miss  Our Joshua Creek Tea!

Time is running out! Buy your TICKETS now! As of September 4, only 10 tickets are left! Tickets will be on sale until Saturday, September 8 at 6:00 pm.

Autumn is almost here. Time to treat yourself and what better way than by joining us for our first Ninth Life High Tea at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre on Sunday, September 9th, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

Bring a friend or come solo and meet new friends. Dress up or be casual. Tickets are $40 per person and include tea samplings, flavoured waters, fancy sandwiches and desserts by Chef Kimberly Ann Masco from Reds Restaurant. Raffles and draws. Live piano music. Everyone goes home with a thank you gift.

The grounds at Joshua Creek alone are worth a visit. There is a huge labyrinth, benches with a view of the valley, art installations throughout the property and artwork inside, a huge produce garden, flower beds everywhere, a pond, and more. The two story Barn Gallery is an 1827 barn that has been rebuilt.

You have probably heard about wine sommeliers. Well, a tea sommelier similarly shows you how to best pair tea with foods in order to enhance the flavour. The correct pairing of food and tea can make a huge difference. If you have always been meaning to try something other than pekoe tea bags, here’s your opportunity. Learn how to make a perfect cup of tea.

Sommelier Tracey Carr-Snyder will increase your knowledge of tea in a delightful way. Did you know that for centuries tea was used only as medicine? It took 3,000 years for it to become an everyday drink. Tea arrived in Canada in 1716, imported by the Hudson’s Bay Company, and took a year to arrive. In the mid 1700s, afternoon high tea was for working men, taken standing up or sitting on tall stools, thus “high” tea.

We are a volunteer organization and all funds raised go directly to the Rescue cats.

Is caring too much a bad thing?

At Ninth Life Cat Rescue, we don’t think so although we do find our large hearts add significantly to our always increasing veterinary bills. At this time of year when our foster homes are bulging with pregnant felines producing litters which need proper vet care and vaccines, it would be so easy to say we only will accept the healthy and easy to adopt cats into our rescue.

But how can we turn a blind eye to those in real need? Like little Avery who was found outside and required extensive treatments for a severe infection in the uterus and chronic ear infections? Definitely this was an exceptional case but what about all the other little ones like Stella who required a full mouth extraction or Mitzy who had a lump on her belly and needed it removed during her spay. These sweet babies were made healthy so they could eventually find their forever homes.

Kittens found outside often need to be treated for flea infestations, severe upper respiratory diseases as well as serious eye infections. Cases like baby Athena are common to us. She was born at only 65g and had swollen eye filled with pus at only 2-3 days old. This had to be lanced and drained and then she was put on eye drops and oral meds. Sometimes complications arise and the eye has to be sacrificed. Athena was lucky that her foster mom got in to the vet in time to help her.

Besides helping those who arrive with health issues, we continue to support our long term fosters who need special care. Mr. Higgins is a diabetic whose blood sugar has to be tested several times a day and who has now developed a heart condition. As a rescue we need to continue to help him and support him in foster care. The same goes for beautiful Bergen who may require neurological testing as she has developed a self- mutilating condition over recent months. We can’t toss out these darlings because they are costing too much.


And for these reasons and so many more we are asking you to come to our fund raiser at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre for High Tea on Sunday September 9 from 1-4 pm. Thanks for your support.
