Kitten Shower for Cricket ~ Benefit for The Cat House!
First Friday, February 3rd

We adopted Cricket from The Cat House in January. When we went to pick her up, we were touched to learn that an anonymous donor had paid our adoption fees!

Cricket is 4 months old. She’s the sweetest little thing – loves to be held and cuddled.
In celebration of her, we’re hosting a “Kitten Shower” to benefit The Cat House!

Friday February 3rd, 12pm-7:30pm, we’ll have a Donation Station for anyone who would like to contribute Cat Food/Litter. We’ll also be accepting cash donations. If you would like to contribute to The Cat House but cannot come to the bookstore that day, visit:

That evening, 5:30pm-7:30pm, Cat House volunteers will have a pop-up shop, “Kitty Corner,” near our counter. They’ll be selling TCH Merch – beds, toys, etc.

And, because this is a Shower, we’ll have treats (including cream cheese mints) and some games people can play for a chance to win prizes!

It’s a fun way to bring the community together in support of The Cat House, which has been hit by inflation yet has not raised adoption fees. Cricket & Charlie are well-provided for. They have all the toys, food, treats, beds & love they could ever want. Our goal is to celebrate our new arrival ~ and provide those things for all the kitties at The Cat House that we were not able to adopt. Join us!
