Portraits of Animals and The Creative Cat Celebrate Adopt a Cat Month!

Share the love!

June is Adopt-a-Cat Month, sponsored by the Catalyst Council, the American Humane Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Read more about Adopt-a-Cat Month, and “specials” on adopting cats at Pittsburgh shelters!

I’ll be featuring adoptable cats all month, and I’ll also be offering specials to help cats be adopted.

First, 5% of all purchases made in my Etsy shop during June will be donated to FosterCat to help them in their mission of fostering homeless cats.

Second, I’ll give anyone who adopts any cat from a shelter a gift certificate to my Etsy shop or anywhere else on my websites where I sell artwork.

And I have special incentives for adopting senior cats and black cats, who are often the last to be adopted, if ever, and you know how much we love them here at The Creative Cat, and how they’ve changed our creative lives!

Read below for details, and follow the links to FosterCat and my Etsy shop and others to find out more.

You’ll donate to benefit shelter cats when you SHOP!

Each sale in my Etsy shop in the month of June will generate a 5% donation to FosterCat, an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to fostering cats of all ages in homes instead of a shelter and finding them the best forever home. The item purchased does not have to be feline-themed.

Click “Portraits of Animals” or any of the listings below to view over 140 items in my shop, many original, handmade and unique.

Gifts from me to you when you ADOPT!

Not only that, but I’m rewarding adoptions too!

Kittens or adult cats

Adopt two kittens or one adult cat and you’ll get a $10.00 gift certificate for my Etsy shop.

A special for senior cats

Adopt a senior cat, at least 12 years of age, and get a $25.00 gift certificate for my Etsy shop in honor of Peaches, the kitty who came into my life when she was 15 years old and spent five wonderful years with me, inspiring many paintings and photos.

And a special gift for black cat adoptions!

Adopt a black cat of any age and get a $25.00 gift certificate for my Etsy shop and a special gift featuring my family of five black cats!

Simply e-mail or fax (412-249-8500) me a copy of your adoption papers and I’ll mail or e-mail off a certificate to you to start shopping. If you’d prefer to mail me a copy, e-mail me for my mailing address.

And don’t forget to share your stories!
