Happy birthday to Benny and Sadie! We're having a commentathon!

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.

Happy Purrday Benny & Sadie, what a wonderful program to spay and neuter outdoor cats. We wish there were more programs like that.

WooHoo Sadie and Benny...smooches to both birthday kitties! We support TNR, because it works! And if I can trap a stray cat, then anyone can because I'm a big wuss.
