Today, Benny turns 17 and Sadie turns 9!
We are celebrating by having a commentathon! For each comment left, we will donate .50 to our local shelters Project Guardian (TNR) program. For a number of years, HAWS, one of the local shelters, offers free spay and neuters (along with rabies vaccine) to unowned outdoor cats. We've used their services three times--in 2013 for a cat we called Bella (who we no longer see), and last December for Lucy and Blackie. Blackie was already neutered, so he received a rabies vaccine but not an ear tip.
Lucy was spayed and given an ear tip (before we knew she wasn't feral).
There has been a decline in cats/kittens brought to the shelter since starting this program, so it's proof it works!
The commentathon is open until Friday the 25th. We'll follow up with the amount donated.
