Winterthur Pet Lovers' Fair! We will be there with Forgotten Cats!

Winterthur Pet Lovers' Fair
November 17, 2007
10 am - 3 pm
Bring your family for a fun day exploring all things pets! Meet interesting animals, learn how to take care of your own pet, hear animal stories, explore the history of pets at Winterthur, and make something to take home.
Included with all admission tickets. Members free.

Be sure to drop by to say hi and check out my kids working with Forgotten Cats!
By now most everyone in the homeschooling community knows about our "pet" project and favorite volunteer organization - Forgotten Cats. My kids love working at the adoption center, helping with the occasional administrative tasks, and volunteering for the various events. We have fostered cats and kittens and ended up adopting quite a few ourselves! Forgotten Cats will be hosting an adoption event as part of Winterthur's Pet Lover's Fair. (See details above.) The kids and I will be there helping out between 12 and 2 on that day. We would love to show off, I mean show off the cats, to our family and friends. This is going to be a wonderful event. We hope you will stop by and say hello!
