Santa Claws Update: 3 Caretakers Adopted, 22 Still Unclaimed

We are asking the community to “adopt” neighbors who care for community cats throughout the region. Adoption means purchasing a gift card to let the caretakers know that they matter, that they deserve support and kindness. To thank them.

Three donors have adopted three caretakers. That leaves 22 who need a gift card.

Please don’t wait to at least tell me you plan to participate. My heart races wondering if we’ll find enough donors.

Best way to participate – send a physical gift card. Some caretakers are not active online so this offers the most flexibility.

Second best way to participate – send an e-gift card to and we will forward.

Also good – drop 25 of any item at my house to distribute – 25 bars of handmade soap, 25 bags of cat treats, 25 pet food bowls, etc.

And the very good choice to send money so we can buy what is needed to fill gaps.
