Cats: you feed them, you love them, you give them your heart. In turn, they give you that sort of cold indifference that is just plain adorable.
On Sunday, Dec. 15, the Redwood Acres Fairgrounds is holding a rummage sale to raise money for the 30+ barn cats that occupy the grounds. The event coordinator and kitty saver, Deedra Alexy, explains that throughout the years, the grounds have amassed quite the collection of cats. "They're self-sufficient," she explains. Whether the cats have found their own way to the stables or they were abandoned there by people who are probably heartless, they now call the stables home (not literally. cats don't talk). But, they earn their keep; Deedra was happy to report that Redwood Acres is practically "rodent-free!"
The cats are all spayed or neutered and are permanent residents of the stables. Nearly all of them are adult cats, many with medical issues. From time to time people abandon kittens, but Deedra explained that homes are usually found for them right away, or they are given to a no-kill shelter.
Though the cats pay their rent via rodent patrol, many of them still require veterinary help or medication. Hence, the fundraising rummage sale. There will be a wide variety of items for sale, from horse tack to household items. So, if you need a bridle and
want to improve the quality of life for a cute kitty cat, head on down to Redwood Acres. The sale starts at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
