A Special Thank You to
T. Steeves Landscaping
Kitty Quarters would like to sincerely thank Tim Steeves of Steeves Landscaping for rescuing Kitty Quarters in our time of need.
This winter it wasn’t so much Tim’s excellent and timely snow plowing that saved us but his landscaping skills. A rainy windy winter when two old trees threatened to close down the rescue, Tim and his brother came and quickly dispatched them. This would have spelled disaster for Kitty Quarters if those limbs or the trucks would have penetrated the roof. This was no easy task for these brothers, as the neighbor, Superior Auto, would not let them access our land so they could get equipment close to the job. That didn’t deter these two determined professionals.In just a few hours KQ was in the clear.
Like everything else, the cost of food has gone sky-high. Worse, the availability is spotty, too. At Kitty Quarters, we feed a consistent diet to all cats, that are not on a special one, Friskies Pate. We use Turkey and Giblets and Mariner’s catch (for those that like fish). Why? Several reasons:
Consistency of food helps the cats' digestion. If there is evidence of a problem (throw up, runny stool, etc.) it's likely not the food.
This is a common brand so adopting families can find it at the local grocery and be able to continue feeding it.
Each cat gets half a can, twice a day. Usually, we have 16-20 cats at Kitty Quarters which means 16-20 cans per day. There are 24 cans per case and a case costs roughly $17. If you do the math, that’s 600 cans (25 cases) of food per month costing $425 per month.
Here’s how you could help us pay for food:
Make a single donation for the number of cases you want to help us purchase. Better yet, become a monthly donor for the number of cases you want to help us with.
Your continued donations and support are our lifeblood that keeps Kitty Quarters able to do its mission – pairing cats with people to benefit both.
Thank you in advance for your caring generosity. Donations are still tax-deductible and receipts will be automatically emailed to you.
