"It is impossible for a lover of cats to banish these alert, gentle and discriminating little friends, who give us just enough of their regard and complaisance to make us hunger for more."
-Agnes Repplier, American essayist

- CATS UNLIMITED IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR ANNUAL CHRISTMAS BAZAAR:
The members of Cats Unlimited are seeking items to sell at their 13th Annual Meowwy Christmas Holiday Bazaar, which will be held at the VFW Building on Friday, December 7, 9 AM to 3 PM, and Saturday, December 8, 9 AM to 1 PM.
We will gladly accept the following: holiday decorations and ornaments, wrapping paper and ribbons, ideas for Christmas and holiday entertaining, items that can be re-gifted or that are suitable to be given as Christmas gifts, jewelry, books, handcrafted items, baked goods, and dog and cat related items. (No clothing, please, unless Christmas themed or cat related.)
To make donations, ask questions about what specifically can be accepted, or arrange for pick-up or delivery, you can reach us by e-mail at email@example.com or leave a message on our voice mail (540) 458-2287. We will get back in touch with you as soon as possible. Remember: all donations are tax deductible!
Can you think of a better way to deal with items that you no longer use than to turn them over to Cats Unlimited to raise money for their Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program? Think of all the little lives you will be saving and making better. Let's make Christmas a safe and happy time for the kitties!
All donations and all consideration in this matter are most gratefully appreciated!!
Details on the sale itself will be posted in plenty of time before the sale, and we do so hope you'll come and shop with us again this year!
- MOUNTAIN DAY --- BUENA VISTA --- SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2018 --- 10 AM TO 4 PM
Come out to Mountain Day on Magnolia Avenue in Buena Vista on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Several members of Cats Unlimited will be on hand to chat with you about "all things cat". We will be there from 10 AM to 4 PM, along with our adoptable kitties. We would love the opportunity to meet you and to have you meet our little four-footed friends in person. Hope to see you there!
(PS --- Look for the blue tent with the crazy cat ladies.)
- "Operation Cans for Cats" has been a very successful endeavor for Cats Unlimited thus far. During the year 2017 alone, well over a ton of aluminum cans were collected and recycled with all money received being utilized to help fund our Spay/Neuter Program. Why throw away those drink cans, beer cans, cat food cans, etc., when they can be put to such good use? Keep us in mind before tossing out your aluminum cans. They just need to be rinsed out, and labels do not have to be removed. But what a simple gesture to raise some money for such a tremendous cause.
- Yet another little bit of good news! On Shore Foundation is an organization based in Malibu, California. They have given us grants for the past four years. We are happy to announce that On Shore Foundation obviously feels Cats Unlimited is a worthy recipient of their funding, as we have just been blessed for the fifth year in a row. An additional $1,000 to aid the kitties of Rockbridge County!
- Cats Unlimited recently received a check for $500 from the Hugs and Kisses Animal Fund. Every little bit helps!
- We did it! We have broken our own record. During the calendar year 2016, Cats Unlimited financed a total of 495 spay/neuter surgeries. We are happy to announe that in 2017 we spayed/neutered 730 cats!. This is the result of both personal requests from citizens utilizing the services of the three local veterinarians who participate in our low-cost spay/neuter program and TNR situations for which we take advantage of transport vans to Angels of Assisi. Many thanks to everyone involved in making this program such a success!
- Cats Unlimited and the Rockbridge Animal Alliance (RAA) are collecting cat and dog food for needy families in Rockbridge County. Our goal is to help these families keep their pets and provide them proper nutrition. The food will be distributed at the Rockbridge Food Pantry on:
