A ‘catio’ is an outdoor enclosure for your cat – a cat patio. A catio provides safe access for your cat to enjoy the outdoors. Catios also allow you peace of mind, knowing that your cat is safe from automobiles, predators, disease, parasites, and many other risks. On the Catio Tour you will meet cat loving homeowners, discuss catio features/ideas, and see a variety of inspiring designs.
Catio Tours – registration fee includes refreshments and the Halifax Catio Tour Guidebook. Registrants are eligible to play Catio Tour Trivia – receive the trivia game sheet at your first catio stop and submit it at your last stop. Correctly completed trivia sheets will be entered in a draw for a prize basket. Each catio on the tour has unique features and was designed for a particular lifestyle/situation. Start your tour at any location. Human hosts will be onsite to discuss catio features/construction/cost; feline hosts may be available, depending on their mood and napping schedule. Various designs suitable for balconies, homes.
Buster has been roaming the streets in Greenwood Heights Timberlea for over 3 years. Some kind neighbours were feeding this fella and had a nice outdoor shelter for him to sleep in. He was brought in to the vet when they noticed he was lame in the back end. As you can see Buster has lots of war wounds from fighting for love. Well, Busters fighting days are over, he is Spay Day cat # 2,000. We are hoping to find Buster an indoor home, so he can rest in luxury.
UPDATE: BUSTER HAS GONE TO A FOSTER-TO-ADOPT SITUATION WITH A LADY WHO HAS GOOD EXPERIENCE WITH RESCUES. He is on meds for pain and infection. He is blind in one eye from an untreated injury and had the eye removed. The pressure in his eye was building & there was continual discharge. He has also had extensive dental work. Buster’s medical costs will be around $2,000. Anyone who would like to celebrate 2,000 spays/neuters by donating towards his medical costs can (a) send an e-transfer to email@example.com (b) mail a cheque payable to Spay Day HRM, 40 Lier Ridge, Halifax B3P 0C7 (c) donate through the Canada Helps web page. Be sure to include your postal address so we can forward you a charitable tax receipt.
Thanks to Dr. Mosher at Tantallon Veterinary hospital for taking care of Buster.
We closed out 2016 with a generous grant of $5,000 from PetSmart Charities of Canada. In 2016 we spay/neutered 486 cats and completed the adoption of 238 cats & kittens.
A huge wow and THANK YOU to Matt and the staff at PetSmart Bedford Commons for the donation of not one, but two cheques of $1,000 each to support the spay/neuter work of our program. And another thank you for the food donations that will assist our fosters with rescued cats. Visit PetSmart Bedford Commons to help out with the food donations that will be running until the end of January. And while there you can visit our adoptable cats, Thor and Silky. Thank You Matt and PetSmart!
