The Whaletown Winter Craft Fair was also an opportunity for Cortes Cat Rescue to generate some dollars to help spay and neuter island cats.  Big purrs to: Laura Balducci, Ashe Biela, Gillian Fast, Wendy Havelaar, Ann Hiatt, Bianca Kaakinen, Suzanne Minogue, Helene Racine & Elin Ross for your help!

So far, between the two fairs we raised enough $ to spay/neuter four to eight cats, depending on gender. Congratulations everyone!
