The Teal Cat Project: A Cool Fundraiser for Cats!

Have you heard of The Teal Cat Project? It's a super-cute fundraiser that supports Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) efforts and cat rescues.

From their site:
Where did the Teal Cat Project come from?
Well, we love thrifting and crafting. On an outing to scour Omaha’s many thrift stores for kitty cat tchotchkes to use as centerpieces for a fundraiser (guess what, it was a fundraiser for cats!), we thought of selling the centerpieces to raise a little extra cash. And then we thought it would be a good idea if we could make the kitties just a little bit cooler in some way. And then somehow, in a fevered dream, it all made sense. We spray paint them. Teal is cool. We make each one collectible, like a Cabbage Patch Kid. The kids go crazy. We give all the money to cat rescue groups. This is who we are.

For me, I'd support anything that Isa Moskowitz is behind.

The wannabe crafter in me is loving this cute project. You can check out their store HERE and if you'd like to donate a cat tchotchke, click HERE.

I'm excited to go thrifting for ceramic cats now!
