Lord Tennyson Cheyenne, the last to leave the downtown Towerview Apartments.StreetCats in Tulsa will be hosting its 11th annual “My Furry Valentine” dessert tasting and silent auction on Sunday, February 10, from 1:30 – 4:30 at the Elks Lodge, 5335 S. Harvard. This will be the second year that StreetCats has had this event at this venue and it offers lots of parking, space and comfort!
Starbucks coffee and wine will be served to compliment a myriad of sweets and things furnished by some of the best restaurants and bakeries in town. The silent auction will include themed baskets for men, women and for children. Basket types will be kitchen, bath, beer, cat, etc. Individual items will be artwork, jewelry, and fashion items.
Entertainment will be provided by keyboardist/pianist Ann Southerland Canode. Tickets will be sold for a chance to win a beautiful oriental rug, donated by Mathis Brothers.
StreetCats just completed its 11th year of helping the homeless cat population in Tulsa. It began with just a handful of volunteers, fostering cats in their homes and showing them on weekends at public venues. In 2002, StreetCats opened its Adoption Center and Unique Boutique which is currently at 60th and Sheridan, behind Charlie’s Chicken. StreetCats had 103 adoptions in 2007.
Tulsa can look for the purrfect cat Tuesday thru Saturday – 10:30 to 5:00 – right where the kitties live! They can also shop for gifts in the boutique, where all proceeds go to offset the cost of the Adoption Center!
In 1998, StreetCats began its program “A Stitch In Time” which allotted funds for the sterilization of strays or “un-owned” cats – to date, StreetCats has been responsible for sterilizing more that 4000 cats in the Tulsa area! In 2007, our total vouchers redeemed for spay/neuter redeemed was 580! That’s an average of around 50 per month!
StreetCats proudly continues to operate its non-profit organization entirely by volunteers. Streetcats, Inc. is a 501(c )(3) tax deductible non-profit organization and is eligible for most corporate matching gifts programs
