On Saturday, April 6, author Cathy Unruh will be participating in a book signing and fundraising dinner for Colony Cats. Cathy Unruh is the author of the book, Taming Me: Memoir of a Clever Island Cat. The book recounts the story of Lucy Miracle, a formerly feral kitty who narrates the adventure. Besides offering the perspective of a feral cat who must learn to trust people, the book also educates on the importance of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in reducing the feline overpopulation problem.

Cathy Unruh will be at a book signing at Colony Cat’s Kit & Kaboodle Boutique from 11 am to 2 pm on Saturday, April 6. The Boutique is located at 2736 Festival Lane in Dublin (in front of Joanne’s Fabrics). You can pre-purchase a copy of the book for $15 on Colony Cat’s web site HERE. The Boutique will also have a special sale the day of the book signing with most items discounted 25%. Cat toys and cat-themed items will be featured. There will also be a bake sale.

Following the book signing, Colony Cats will host a fundraising dinner from 6-8 pm at Camelot Cellars Winery, 958 North High Street in Columbus. You can meet Cathy and Lucy at the dinner and hear Cathy speak about TNR in the United States and the Bahamas (where Lucy Miracle was tamed). The event is $65 per person and includes wine from Camelot Cellars, dinner and dessert from A Catered Event, and an autographed copy of Taming Me: Memoir of a Clever Island Cat. Currently, there are only 14 seats still remaining for this event. So if you want to attend, get moving. You can purchase tickets online HERE.

On Saturday, March 30 beginning at 7 pm (and lasting until about 11 pm) at The Aladdin Shrine Center, 3850 Stelzer Road (near Morse Road) in Columbus, you can dance to the music of The Tommy Wade Orchestra and raise money to help Black and Orange Cat Foundation in their mission to spay and neuter area cats.

The featured music will include the classics, standards, and contemporary music made popular by Big Bands of yesteryear. There will also be current arrangements for fans who love powerful performances from a full dance and jazz orchestra. Additionally, there will be vocal renditions from Carl Wyatt and Heidi Turner. Carl Wyatt and The Rendition Classic Rock Band will be performing for each Big Band intermission for thirty minutes. They will be playing music from the 50′s through the 70′s for all the classic rock fans.

A snack bar and two full beverage bars will be provided. Prices are $15 per person.

Any tickets purchased from Ernie Sparks, our drummer friend at Ernie’s Medicine Shoppe in London, or from Black and Orange volunteers will benefit Black and Orange Cat Foundation. Black and Orange gets to keep all of the proceeds from tickets sold by us or Ernie–that means the $15 from your ticket goes directly to help cats in need. Ernie is also the kind person who donated the Mini Cooper for us to raffle off a few years ago.

Your ticket will say “Ernie Sparks” on it, so that the bands can keep track of how many tickets were sold by each person participating in the event. Ernie will be playing drums during the evening with The Rendition Band.

You can buy tickets by stopping in Plain City Druggist, 480 South Jefferson Avenue, Plain City, across from Der Dutchman Restaurant, between 9-6 pm Monday through Friday, 9-noon on Saturday.

Dr. Kim West and her staff are also selling tickets at Health and Harmony Animal Hospital, 1117 West 1st Avenue in Grandview.

You can also buy tickets by sending the amount and the number of tickets desired along with your name and address to Black and Orange Cat Foundation, P. O. Box 126, Plain City, Ohio 43064.
