Foster Focus: Delta's 6 Singing Sons
Say hello to Delta and her 6 singing sons, who are being lovingly cared for by a Craig Street Cats foster family.
Delta comes from one of our managed colonies, and gave birth to her 6 handsome boys at our adoption centre. The whole family has been taken in by one of our amazing foster families. The boys are doing very well, and the family will be available for adoption some time in July.
Happy Birthday to Us!
Wow! Our adoption centre has been open for 2 whole years! It's been an amazing journey and we will be celebrating with a 2 day birthday party and kitten baby shower. Please consider this your invitation to the party, May 24 and 25, 1 to 4 pm. The weekend promises to be lovely, and we'll have the barbecue going from 1 to 4 both days. Of course we'll have a bake sale, and lots of interesting goodies available.

Whisker Walk for Craig Street Cats
The first Sunday in June is coming up quickly! Have you registered for our Whisker Walk
yet? This is probably our most important spring event, as it helps to make sure we have funds on hand during the summer, which is our time of highest need. Summer is also the most difficult time of year for fundraising, because so many people are away on vacation or staying at their cottages.
Registration is easy. Just follow this link for complete information
about the event, and how you can register. If you can't walk, please make a pledge
on line, or drop into our adoption centre to pledge via cash or cheque. We promise to make every dollar count.
Craig Street Cats - Volunteer Spotlight
Volunteers are the backbone of Craig Street Cats and we love them dearly!
We'd like to introduce Leah P., who has been volunteering with CSC for over 2 years. Leah first heard about CSC from a friend who volunteered here, and thought she should give it a try.
Here's some Q & A with Leah:
Q. What sort of volunteering do you do with Craig Street Cats?
A. I come in 2 or more times per week, and do just about everything, except give medications. I've helped with cage cleaning, feed, washing dishes and floors, socializing cats and kittens, fundraising events, adoptions -- just about everything.
Q. What's the best part of volunteering with Craig Street Cats?
A. Interacting with all the cats and meeting new people.
If you are interested in volunteering at Craig Street Cats, we'd love to hear from you! We need all types of volunteers and you can commit to regular shifts or volunteer as your schedule permits. Submit your application online today by heading to Craig Street Cats - Volunteers
