Mixed-breed household pets will be judged on Saturday and Sunday along with purebred cats including the Abyssinian, Ragdoll, Persian, Maine Coon, Scottish Fold, Exotic Shorthair, and some newer breeds such as the Napoleon cat. Several animal rescue groups will be there with adoptable cats. Take a chance on our raffle tables, and buy some locally made crafts. Meet Robin A.F. Olson, award-winning author of the blog "Covered in Cat Hair" and founder of Kitten Associates cat rescue in Connecticut, with her special feline guest and Facebook favorite, Freya (https://www.facebook.com/forFreya).

418 non-profits took part in yesterday's Fairfield County's Giving Day and we're proud to say that as a tiny rescue, with only one person at the helm, we managed to rise to 15th place, getting a higher number of unique donations than most of the other organizations. This is a true testament to the dedication of our friends, adopters and volunteers, and for that, please accept our deepest appreciation for helping us raise over $3000 in one day! Add to that our $500 First Prize for Most Likes on our photo of Minnie and her kittens, and that will mean we can continue to provide for our foster cats and help new cats at risk, too.
THANK YOU EVERYONE and especially a big thank you to Fairfield County's Community Foundation for allowing us to take part in this amazing event!
We have until 11:59pm EST TODAY...
...to get the most people to make a single donation of just $10 to our rescue.
Thanks to Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, the non-profit organization who gets the MOST unique donations in 24 hours (so only donate ONCE PER PERSON) can WIN an Extra $20,000 for that rescue!

Minnie was found in Bridgeport, nearly starved to death, along with her 5 days-old kittens. They were in a basement window well and a heavy rainstorm was coming soon. We shudder to think of what could have happened to Minnie and her family had we not said YES when we were asked to help. Today, Minnie basks in a home filled with love where her nickname is "Little Peanut." Her kittens are grown and in loving homes of their own. We've been honored to be part of over 400 cat's rescues since we opened in 2010 and we can't wait to rescue more with your help.
We're a 501c3, non-profit, 100% volunteer, home-foster-based rescue. We rely solely on donations to provide food, vet care and more for our foster cats and kittens. We also help our community with our FREE Cat Behavior Counseling service for any cat with behavior problems, as well as create fun programs for local families. One of our programs, Kitties for Kids, garnered us a Certificate of Special Recognition from Senator Richard Blumenthal, for our Outstanding Service to the families of Newtown after the tragedy here in 2012. If we won the first prize of $20,000 it would be a GAME-CHANGER for us. Among other things, it would allow us to finally update our worn out, run down main foster room so our foster cats could stay healthier and be happier until they find their forever home. Thank you for your consideration!
