BlogPaws Keeps on Giving

We have lots to report about BlogPaws but Kitty Corner in Pleasant Hill, CA is where we left something great behind. Here’s what happened….

  • STOP PRESSwe have a comment brelow from Chrissy Wilberg giving accurate figures for the rescue when Mum was visiting! Thank you Chrissy!

BlogPaws attendees get a ‘swag bag’ when they register. The swag is famous because there is a lot of it and it’s amazing! We finished the conference with a collection of cat gifts, tins, and free food vouchers. We couldn’t take the food home but hoped to ‘paw it forward’, and asked our AdventurCat buddy Savannah for some help finding where the goodies would help most. She suggested the folks and felines at Kitty Corner, Pleasant Hill CA.,

Here is Mum presenting our gift and trying not to giggle too much. She is wearing her Dash Kitten locket, so Founder Cat Dash was present in spirit to oversee the handing on of the bag to Chrissy. Many thanks to Savvy’s Mom L. for taking such a fun picture!

The ‘free roaming’ room at Kitty Corner in Pleasant Hill, CA is a great place, check it out!

Many of you will be fans of Savannah’s Paw Tracks, and Mum was thrilled to see the rescue Savvy was adopted from. This is what is called a ‘free roaming’ facility – you will notice there are no cages. Volunteers keep an eye on the kittens ensuring no-one hides away for too long, and proper care is administered as necessary. All kittens should have a room like this – right? Visitors hoping to adopt kittens are allowed to come in and meet them in this safe environment, which means a kitten can approve a potential forever family in a place it knows and trusts.

Although the free roaming room ‘looks’ quiet, Mum said there were more than 20 kittens in there. They, in true kitty style, are the sweetest characters ever and it took all Mum’s will power not to sneak one home in her bag! Yes, the kittens are miraculous and cute, but it’s an ongoing challenge for small rescues fighting for limited resources to keep them safe, neutered and fed. I think every rescue would love to see empty cages, and rooms, thanks to responsible pet ownership and neutering – right?

We are glad that the youngsters of Kitty Corner now have some more treats to help keep them running around like crazy things, including this catnip ball! A solid ‘nip ball is new to us and we just hope Seville doesn’t see this post…….

  • As a special bonus, we discovered that Kitty Corner also tries to help people on low incomes who have pets. Their AniMeals programme is a supplemental pet food and supply program for local residents – we love that idea! What a weight off a worried pet owners mind to be able to turn to someone if the dollars didn’t go as far as they hoped this week.

To the swag sponsors of BlogPaws a huge Thank You. As international bloggers who were made welcome by all the vendors we spoke to, we know you will be happy to see swag passed on to a hard-working rescue. Kitty Corner work on the front line with local cats and kittens, and feeding them is a major expense. Every donation of food and green papers is a help.

    We love you, Dash Kitten & Marjorie! Thank you so much for all of the generous goodies donated to our feline friends here at Kitty Corner. When you were here we had 30 kittens and 3 adults; 16 have since been adopted, and our 3 adults are doing a great job of teaching the remaining 14 the ropes with the help of all of your toys & treats. We are so grateful to you guys!
