I used to make fun of crazy cat ladies. Once. A long time ago. Before I became a crazy cat lady myself when I adopted a very vocal little black kitty named Chloe. Well, to be honest, her name was Heidi. But it’s Chloe now. Which doesn’t really matter because it’s not like she answers to anything but the sounds of a can of wet food being opened anyways. We adopted her from the Washington Animal Rescue League which is truly a great shelter where abused, abandoned, and forgotten animals can transition from lives of hardship to being cherished members of a family. June is the height of “kitten season” for animal shelters, and the Washington Animal Rescue League is seeking help in caring for the scores of kittens they will take in, raise, and find homes for. So they’re hosting a “Kitten Shower.”
Help the Washington Animal Rescue League this Sunday, between 12-2PM, by donating some of the items every new cat-parent needs: kitten formula, cotton balls, feeding bottles, towels or heating pads. You can also learn about becoming a foster parent to one (or more) of the cute little purr-balls. Or you can even drop by the Cat Room to see if there’s a special cat in there that could turn you into a crazy cat lady (or crazy-cat gentleman I guess).
The Washington Animal Rescue League is located at 71 Oglethorpe Street, NW. Additionally, June is Adopt-A-Cat month and the Washington Humane Society is waiving adoption fees for all cats over two years old.
