Beaufort Community Cat Project

When we started receiving our allowance, I was under the impression that $5.00 could buy me at least 20 bags of treats and some other stuff on the side! Unfortunately, that is not true, but Mommy told us that if we saved our allowance, it would grow bigger. Deli and I have ours since last week and it's still $5.00 each! Mommy said it'll grow tomorrow and we can use our allowance for tomorrow, today, so we decided to pool all of that together and now we have a total of $21.00 (Deli only spent 4 dollars the first week so she has an extra dollar)! We checked out some things online, and because I received so many toys for my birthday, we decided that we are very lucky cats so we're going to donate our money to some kitties who need it more than us.




This time we choose the Beaufort Community Cat Project (BCCP) to donate to. They do TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) which we think is the most effective way to humanely reduce the population of feral/stray cats. Dana, the Creek Cats' Mommy, volunteers for them and she really helps out so many kitties all the time! Our Mom follows them on Facebook and she gets updates about all the kitties they help. Since their inception in mid 2006, they've performed almost 230 spay/neuters and so far this year it's almost 60! They also set up feeding stations for the kitties.

Here are some pictures of the colony cats that the BCCP has helped.

Thank you for helping so many cats, Dana! We know our donation is not much, but we hope that it'll help. We hope to grow some more money in the future to help out again!

This is such a great thing to do! We think the BCCP is a wonderful organization (and we love Dana - she works really hard to help all animals!)

P.S. Thanks so much for your purrs for Franklin! We think he is feeling a bit better.

How thoughtful of you, Samson and Delilah, to donate your money to help other kitties in need! Your mommy raised you right.

Those kitties are absolutely beautiful -- I'm sure they'd make good pets for someone, but at least they won't be proliferating at will.

How very thoughtful of you to do that with your allowance. It's wonderful to hear that since you feel you are well taken care of, that you will give to the less fortunate. And, the pictures are great. We hope each and every one of those kitties find a Furever Home!

What a great idea. We know all those kitties will be helped by your allowance and we sure hope they find their forever homes soon.

What a nice thing you and your mom are doing to help feral kitties live a better life! Our mom and us donate to A.C.A.T. (Albuquerque Cat Action Team) who does trap-neuter-release as well as fostering kitties. With all our combined efforts the kitties of the world will one day be safer and more secure.

Tristan and Crikey said...

It's really sweet of you two to donate your allowance:) Those kitties in need will really appreciate it. You two must be angels in disguise.

Amy said...

That is so wonderful that the two of you are going to donate your allowance to kittys who need help. You are a great example for all the kitties out there!
