ANDY IS STILL UP FOR ADOPTION AT OLLIE'S PLACE!
Visit Ollie's Place in Murray Hill
203 East 26th Street, just off Third Ave.
Andy has been at Ollie's Place cat rescue and adoption since he was a kitten -- he is 4 years old now!
I had submitted a picture and bio each for two different cats -- one from the shelter where I volunteer, KittyKind, and one from Anjellicle Cats Rescue -- to Lance for the RA June 08 newsletter. Tracey at Anjellicle yesterday told me that her cat, Rex, had been adopted!
My thoughts immediately turned to Ollie's Place. I emailed Laura, whom I'd met at our last Mother's Comfort Sewing event, asking her to send me a photo and details of any particular cat that really need some extra publicity.
She sent me info on Andy, a 4-yr old gorgeous emerald-eye tabby. I could not believe that he had been at a rescue/adoption shelter for 4 years! Luckily at Ollie's they have a cat room where the little felines can walk and mess around in...but...it is a cat room not a home, of course.
Tracey and I spoke on IM, as she was drawn to this situation. She immediately inquired about opening up a space for Andy at their adoption van event this Saturday in Columbus Circle.
And both parties made a deal, and Andy will get in front of a lot more people this Saturday.
I can't wait to visit him!
