I thought I'd write a post about things coming up that are going on before I go away -
Sonya's cat rescue (Healing Animal SCARS) is having an adoptathon this weekend - so if you've been thinking about bringing a new cat into your life - now's the time to do it - here's her blurb -
Please come check out our lovely kitties on May 2 & 3 anytime from 9am to 8pm. We are located at 143 Briarwood Drive in Eastern Passage. If you fall in love with one of our cats or kittens, we will complete an adoption application on the spot!
Call Sonya at 469-MEOW (that's 469-6369) for more details.
You can see our cats online at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/NS28.html
Also this weekend - Tailwaggrrs out in Bedford is having their 1st Annual Fundraiser and BBQ for people AND their Dogs! May 3rd (Rain or Shine) at K9 Wellness Centre located at 746 Bedford Highway.
