Sunday: City Kitty Fundraiser @ Nietzsche’s
by Geoff Kelly - posted 12:00 pm, November 7, 2009
It may not be “kitten season” yet, but it’s definitely time for last season’s batch of cuties to get spayed or neutered, in order to ward off an even bigger kitty explosion come spring. This semi-annual fundraiser helps “build the kitty for the kitties,” meaning proceeds benefit City Kitty, basically a one-woman cat rescue mission in the form of Robin Johnson. Vilardo Printing, Johnson’s business, is located at 326 Connecticut St., where she has has been tending to neighborhood strays since 2001. While the cats/kittens come in various stages of disease or neglect, at about six or seven months old, nearly all of them need to be spayed or neutered, which is the biggest cost of care for these “outdoor pets,” far surpassing medicine and flea control in expense. With approximately five cats that need “fixing” at any given time, it’s time for a fundraiser to help with costs. This one is at Nietzsche’s on Sunday afternoon (Nov. 8), from 2-8pm. Music provided by All of Them Witches, Bev Beverly, Fouren, Odiorne, and Wooden Waves on the front stage; on the back stage we’ll get Rose Bond, Susan Peters, Kathy Puleo, and Liz Abbott.
2-7pm. Nietzsche’s, 248 Allen St. $10 donation plus cat food appreciated.
