January 2016
Dear Friends,

We hope your 2016 is off to a great start and we wish you and your feline family all the best! We appreciate your trust and support this past year and look forward to being here for your feline friends this coming year.

A huge thank you to all who contributed to making the December Pet Food Drive an enormous success! With your help, we donated 1000 pounds of food to the Seattle Humane's Pet Food Bank. Due to your generosity, many needy cats and dogs in the community won't go hungry.

We also want to express our deepest gratitude for all the donations to our Saint Francis Fund! Your support allows us to continue providing care to help abandoned cats with medical needs and concerns. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of cats.

10 Tips for Feline Wellness
For a Healthier Cat in 2016

The good folks at American Association of Feline Practitioners have offered some helpful suggestions to help keep your feline family healthy:

1. Make Yearly Vet Visits a Routine
