10th SPAGHETTI DINNER 10/19/19
Kopy Kat Sanctuary Spaghetti Dinner #10 was a total success! We moved the venue AND YOU CAME OUT TO SUPPORT US!! It is very hard to express how much we appreciate our many wonderful supporters. Our fabulous spaghetti making crew lead by they dynamic duo, Superwoman Angie and Tom O. killed it! Our dinner volunteers, our bakers, our toy makers, our sponsors, baskets and our friends (both old and new) who come out to eat, celebrate and spend their money all for the cats! We had so much fun and hope you all had a wonderful time too.
Many of you are compassionate rescuers who give so much. We know what that means as far as your time and money. We so greatly appreciate you sharing a big chunk of your day and all of your donations in any and all forms! This annual event carries our mission a long way and enables us to continue to care for our many resident cats, our cat colonies, and our Trap-Neuter-Return outreach initiatives to spay and neuter in our community. We absolutely LOVE spending the day with you. Our hearts are filled with love and yesterday was that best day ever! Thank you ALL! ❤️🙌🏻🍝🐈👍😘🍪

FOR SALE: Insulated Cat Shelters
A KKS volunteer is selling them for $25/shelter (or if you purchase three at the same time, they are discounted to $20/each). Depending on the cat size one to two cats can fit comfortably. We take sturdy plastic 35 Gallon Latch Totes (blue or gray) and punch out two 6” round, kitty-sized doors (one on the end and one on the side). Both holes are covered with clear vinyl door flaps to help keep the elements out and the warmth in. The vinyl flaps are attached with Velcro and are removable/adjustable. The interior bottom and back side are lined with insulation board and then we insert a 1 3/4″ thick insulated cooler with two matching door openings. The inside of the cooler is stuffed with straw to keep the kitties warm and comfy.
TO PURCHASE: Please Email firstname.lastname@example.org and add the phrase “cat shelter” in the subject field and let us know how many you want to buy. We are all volunteers, but someone will do their best to get back to you in 24-48 hours to confirm that we have them in stock. PLEASE CHECK YOU SPAM FOR OUR RESPONSE.
1. Once the shelter is placed where your kitties can safely access it, arrange the straw into a snuggly nest. Make sure the doors are not blocked so that they can enter/escape easily from both of the doors. You can sprinkle some diatomaceous earth (food grade) inside on the straw to help combat fleas. Put both the Styrofoam and plastic lids on and make sure cooler is closed tightly.
2. It is wise to protect from the elements as best as possible (under a porch, in a shed, on a deck, covered with plywood & tarp, etc.)
3. Place either 1 cinder block, 5 bricks or something else heavy on top of the shelter. That way they will not blow away if the weather gets fierce. They can also tip over if they are not weighted well. (Please, please make sure they are weighted and secure, so your kitties are safe!)
4. You can place a tiny bit of catnip inside (just a pinch) and or rub on the white cooler door areas to increase their interest in making the shelter their own.
5. DO NOT put blankets, towels or fabric inside the shelter EVER as they can collect moisture and become deadly cold when damp.
6. After a couple of weeks or a month check to see if you will need to add more straw (NOT HAY). Every season add more straw or replace and start fresh.
7. Make sure it is kept dry inside. Away from the rain and snow.
8. Sleep better knowing you are helping to keep less fortunate outdoor kitties warm! ❤️🐈❤️

Do you have a DIABETIC cat or dog?
Young Again Pet Food®
The excess carbs and plant products found in may cat foods may be a primary cause that leads to diabetes, obesity ans UTI in cats. Young Again Pet Food (YAPF) was recommended by our vet after one of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes. We have nothing but positive things to say about the kind people at YAPF and their awesome products. After switching to this food our kitty went into remission and we encourage you to check out their website and place an order.
