Allergic to Cats & Kittens?

Allergic to Cats & Kittens?

Soon our adoption centres will be again filling with kittens and cats. Some of our adopters will not have had exposure to cats or kittens before so it is wise to make sure no one at the home is allergic. It is distressing both for the new adopter (especially if they have children) and the cat if the animal must be returned due to allergies.

If you are not sure if someone in your house is allergic. we ask that that the whole family visit at least once to see how they react to the cats in the adoption centre.

We have updated our existing article on allergies to cats with a new link that we think you will find helpful: Two Cat Freaks.

The original article is Allergic to Cats? Catchoo!

Knitters for Whiskers

Knitters for Whiskers

One of our volunteers at Oakville PetSmart, Irene, is part of a group called Knitters for Whiskers. Irene, and two other high school students, April and Diana, started a non profit project knitting blankets for cats to take with them on their journey home. They wanted the cats and kittens to have something soft to snuggle with in their carriers on the way to their new home. Often, adopters purchase a new carrier and have nothing to put inside with the cat/kitten. The group has 30 members and counting and in the past four months they have produced 45 blankets.

Currently, they are selling hoodies with their logo to raise funds. Each hoodie is $35.00 with $6.00 of the profit going to Ninth Life Cat Rescue. $4.00 will go to yarn and knitting supplies for the club.

The deadline for ordering a hoodie is Monday, April 8th. If you would like to support them and order a hoodie, vist the Knitters for Whiskers website, for an order form and details.

HOODIE ORDER FORM

The group is always looking for yarn for the projects. If you have leftover yarn you wish to donate, please contact them via their website or drop off yarn to Irene on Monday nights at Oakville PetSmart, between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. Thank you!
