Books for Cat Food -Spring 2015

imageThank you to all the friends and members who donated gently used books to the “Book Table” at the Kitties ‘n Blooms Show on April 18/19 2015.  Recycling cans and bottles at the show was also appreciated.  A big thank you to everyone who purchased a preowned book.  We hope you enjoyed them.

The funds from both endeavours were taken to the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank so they could purchase cat food for their client’s kitties.

The $155.00 raised will provide $775.00 of food for Calgary kitties to help them stay home and away from rescue centres. (The Food Bank is able to acquire cat food at a factor of 5 for each dollar donated)

Thank you everyone!

Breeders Directory Update

Maureen Davies, President, Calgary Cat Association announces that there will be a publication change to the CCA Breeders Directory, effective immediately.  The directory is published to provide information to those who want to purchase pedigreed kittens or cats.

It will be published on-line annually at the CCA website.  Formerly the Breeders Directory was published twice yearly in April and October.  Listing fees were $20 per breed for each issue.  The new rates for annual publication on-line will be $35/breed per year.  Paper copies of these listings will be available to the public at Calgary Cat Association shows.

We believe this will provide an improved service to both the public and breeders and will result in savings for the breeders
