Coffee With Cats

Starting tomorrow I’ll be running a new monthly adoption event for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue at Pet Valu Trainyards in Ottawa. It’s on the third Saturday of every month from 10am -2pm. For a small donation to the rescue you can come have a bit of breakfast and check out adoptable cats. There will be coffee freshly brewed throughout the event, muffins I baked fresh that morning, and other goodies baked by awesome OSCatR volunteers!

So come join us some Saturday at Coffee with Cats!

Santa Paws Helping Stray Cats

Santa Paws Caturday

Santa Paws is now done his yearly visit to the good dogs and cats of the world, and things are slowing down some here at the DRC Workshop. This season the Santa Paws for a Good Cause promotion was rather popular. All together we raised $55 CAD for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue!

It went over well enough that I’ve decided to make the Santa Paws stockings a permanently available item on my Etsy Shop. So now we can help stray cats all year long!

Stray Cat Caturday at DRC

Happy Caturday everyone from the Zoo at the DRC Workshop! Just wanted to share this picture of Tray helping me take pictures of the Santa Paws stockings.

Make Christmas a Little Less Blue for Stray Cats

Want to make the holidays a little less blue for a stray cat? Then consider one of the new Blue Santa Paws stockings we added to our Etsy shop today. Now there’s two blues as well as red and green!

All colors are still available for now. Though there is only one light blue left.

For each stocking sold between now and December 24, 2017, $5 CAD from each stocking will be donated to the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue.

For more information on the stockings and how to buy them check out my previous post here

Mission Pawsible – Beat the Heat Online Auction

Until July 16, 2017 Mission Pawsible is having an online auction! The proceeds of the auction go to help out two wonderful animal rescues in Ottawa, ON; The Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue and Furry Tales Rescue.

A word of why the rescues need help from the Mission Pawsible people;

‘Between the two rescues, there are over 200 cats in care with daily requests to take in more cats. The rescues cannot take in cats and help them find their forever homes without the funds to make sure the cats have been vet checked, vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchiped. Adoption fees do not cover associated medical costs so fundraisers like this one help to bridge the gap.

Please help us make this auction a successful one so that more cats can be saved and find their forever homes!’

The auction is not just for cat lovers! Many of the items were donated by restaurants, jewelry makers, services, and the list goes on.

Bearly Work Creations and I donated a suPURRvisor basket to the auction.

The suPURRvisor basket is a  wicker basket with a pillow and a wooden sign for the front that says suPURRvisior that a small to medium sized cat can fit in.

In the basket is a pillow, a hand hooked wool rug called Fat Cat from Bearly Work Creations  and a number of crocheted things by me; a placemat, a Santa Paws stocking, and a Jingle Jangle toy.

Help Animals In Need Simply By Walking

I just had a great app shared with me called ResQWalk,  and I’ll be giving it a full test run later.

The whole idea is that the app uses the GPS on your phone to track how much you walk and your favorite rescue gets some money.  When you first sign in you can choose which rescue to walk for. If you want to walk for more than one you simply have to reset it to the new one. Many local rescues are already signed up so it shouldn’t be to hard to find your favorite, and the app allows you to follow as many rescues as you want. Obviously I’ll be walking for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, but I may from time to time walk for another.

You can download the app for either iOs or Android. It also helps you find local pet friendly areas such as parks, vets, lodging, etc. All in all a great resource for people with animal companions.

It’s that easy to help animal rescues get much needed funds. Every bit helps!

Kittens In Need!

It’s kitten season and the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is in need of some help. They have over seventy , yes 70!! , kittens in care right now. It takes a lot of food to keep those little bellies full!

Please consider helping them out. You can check out their website  or Facebook page for more info about the rescue and all of the wonderful work they do.
