    Thank you for making this available and for bringing this organization to my attention. It's a great cause. I really enjoyed helping out today. Do you think we should measure this?

    I am only going to be able to come for an hour or so as I have to take care of some things with my foster kitty (and if anybody is interested in a 15 month old really cool, buff orange, 15 pound male cat - fixed and all shots - let me know....like I said, he is a really neat cat...good for a home without small children).

    • Natalie

      Yup. Not a lion...but he does a pretty good pounce! Even so, he's a sweetie and needs a forever home.

      I am going to bail...got in late last night from a work trip. Thought I'd have enough energy to do this and the cat adoption event...but, nope.

    • Pat

      No, we usually do it as a group once a month (or as needed). But I'm sure if you have the free time they would be more than appreciative of any time you can give.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
