Autumn Open House, October 25th 2008

Our autumn open house event and fundraiser was a big success, putting a few thousand dollar dent in our deficit. The weather cooperated and the cats were, as always, genial hosts and tireless "product testers" for all things feline available for sale or raffle!

Thank you to everyone who donated items for the silent auction and raffle. Thank you as always to Tom & Tina Ellis of Feline Fantasies for the wonderful cat trees which provoked some people to buy large blocks of raffle tickets to tilt the odds in their favor!

Thank you also to all of our wonderful volunteers who came early and stayed late to help set up and clear up. We could not do this without you!
