Geoff and Gina need food



 Geoff and Gina are doing very well without Gabby. There was a small incident where Gina started losing weight and wasn't eating well, but we got her through that with some simple supportive care and they are currently at weight waiting for a spot on the schedule to be neutered. 

Sadly, we have a little bit of a problem.. 


Yup, we are running really low on food.  I drove down to the shelter (111 miles round trip) and all they had was shredded food.  They were originally eating that so I was hopeful that would be okay, but they are not fans of it.

I have done fundraising here before offering up my Amazon wish list but I have been having real issues with Amazon - both personally (not a fan of some of the stories of the working conditions I have heard) - and physically - as I don't have mail service to my house and my Post Office is currently having some real issues getting mail to people in the community (me included). I toyed with the idea of asking for gift cards to Petsmart but that seemed like too much of a stretch. 

I reached out to an independent pet store I adore.  Cats Kingdom in Manchester NH is a catcentric pet store. Cathy has a great selection of food as well as things like cat trees, water fountains, and toys. I make the trek down every couple of months to buy things as I really want to support them and I thought this fundraiser might be a good way to support several causes I care about at once.

Cathy is entirely willing to work with me, and you, on this. If you would like to purchase something online, you can do that here.  If you would like to buy a gift card or anything else by phone, you can reach them at 603-935-8321 and she will store it for me there and I will drive down to get it.  Cathy said in an email:

Your friends can call to get a gift card, they are not connected to my online store. If you let me know what you want to accomplish, I can make anything happen on my end. Also please note, that all sale items are in-store only. While the online store is a great tool and can be ordered off of, 99% of my business is in-store.

Emailed invoices are also an option. A gift card bought via phone or emailed invoice can then be mailed out /saved in-store.... If you see a sale item, I can send you an invoice, it can be paid and then held at the store. 

Cathy is currently having some cool sales at the store.  You can see them on her Facebook Page. She also runs an Instagram page. Geoff and Gina have a strong preference for pate food in poultry flavors, but any other flavors will be saved for future kittens, which I am sure to have. Cathy often has my favorite cat toy in stock, and I could use a few more of those as well.

If you would like to support me by sending a gift card for cat litter, that would be great as well. It is amazing how much of it they go through.. lol  

I often say that my followers are vital to the success of the kittens I foster because it is your support and encouragement that help get me through some difficult times.  Being reminded that there are "cat people" out there who value the lives of kittens and unhomed kitties lets me send out my fosters out into the world trusting they will land with good people. Thank you for spending part of your day with me, and for even considering helping out

  2. Any particular brand of pate ? (My cats like plain old Friskies poultry to avoid fish Wal-Mart had a good stock for awhile but now they are out again)

    1. they have been eating Friskies pate foods in poultry flavors.. if Gina wasn't so picky it would be easier, but finding both pate and poultry in stock has been a gamble

  4. I wish the cat food shortage would make the news like the baby formula shortage. I can't donate right now, but hopefully soon. XO
