STOP PRESS – UPDATE at the GoFundMe page. STOP cats now have a Facebook Page – go ‘Like’.

Thanks to friend Vicki (aka @BZTAT) we heard about an appeal for STOP cat shelter in Mansfield, Ohio after a dreadful fire there. The rescue is small, hardworking and not very media savvy when it comes to asking for help on blogs, Twitter and Facebook. So, not only do they need our financial help, they need us to blog, tweet and appeal on their behalf for the cats from the fire…….

A GoFundMe appeal has been set up – please donate and keep digging deep.  Full details of the fire and how the cats are doing can be found in this news article which includes more USA based ways to donate locally. We would also direct your attention to this blog post by artist colleague BZTAT – it is moving, encouraging and inspiring.

We are going to help – we hope you can too, by donating, sharing and spreading the word to get this small hard working cat rescue back on its feet.

    Wish there was a house or building they could rent SHORT TERM so these kitties can get back to some normalcy. One ground floor space, with some parking and reasonable rent is what is needed, certainly with all the business owners or rental places someone has something suitable. Its not like the cats are going to trash your place, they trash toys, scratch posts etc. Yes they can be smelley at bathroom breaks, but think about your bathroom breaks do they make you want to hang out in there for hours? Litter pans kept clean wont trash anything. Someone needs to come to the rescue of the rescue!!!!!
