I have no idea why I called this post chocolate kitties. Those are two things I’m going to mention… but the cats themselves aren’t chocolate.
Many of you know I’m not really a cat person… I’m allergic and just much more suited to dogs. However, for the past few months, Richard and I have been helping the Humane Society of Faulkner County with taking care of the huge amount of cats rescued from a hoarding situation. I have good news: we started with well over 100 cats, and now we are down to less than 10! The cats that are left are not very social and will make awesome barn cats for someone. Other than that, the cats have all gone to different adoption agencies across the state and most have families now!
There is one cat that we fell in love with… affectionately named “sneezy kitty” due to how sick she’s been. Well, she came to live with us temporarily last week. She is such a sweet cat, but wreaking havoc on my allergies.
All the same – we are fostering to get her back up to speed and ready to be a sweet, loving cat in someone’s home forever! We’ve been supporting by volunteering… I wanted to let you all know of a great way to support that’s coming up.
This year, we’re hosting Chocoholics 19th Annual Dream Day Out. The event will take place Saturday, February 11, from 1-4 at First United Methodist Church in Conway. Tickets are $12 in advance, $20 at the door, and $5 for kids. You can come enjoy a fun afternoon of all-you-can eat chocolate! Many businesses in town (including pattiCakes Bakery, Starbucks, and Stromboli’s) will be donating chocolate that you can enjoy at the event. There will also be a silent auction and a number of adoptable pets!
Please join us for the event… you can purchase tickets online here. This is our largest fundraiser of the year and allows us to provide homes and medical care to many animals. If you’re not able to make it, you can purchase tickets online and write DONATION in the notes.
Hope to see you all there!
