3100 Falk Road #11, Vancouver, WA
This will be our first meet up and I'd love to get to know everyone. Bring your cat stories, photos, and ideas and I'll supply the refreshments.
I think for this first meeting I'm just going to ask people to introduce themselves, their cats (if they have any), and maybe a story about a cat encounter. Then we can all discuss our strengths and see who is capable of doing what, as far as maybe leading a meeting. Some of my ideas are: cats in literature, feral cat behaviors, cats in pop culture, cats in art (or antiques/collectibles), controlling cat populations, dealing with a cat in chronic pain, grieving the loss of a cat, local solutions to pet dumping/feral cats, etc. Please bring in ideas of your own as well.
I was also thinking of some cat outings we might do. I know there is now a cat cafe in Portland. Some of you might also want to tour Chapple Hill Cat Sanctuary. We can talk about maybe doing a fund raiser for them as well, or maybe other nonprofit cat rescuers in the area. I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
