Local Cat Rescue to Host “Not Kitten Around” ONLINE Auction

(Vancouver, WA) Furry Friends is hosting its 2nd annual spring online auction fundraiser. The festivities will begin at 5:00 PM on Thursday, March 25 and will end on Sunday, March 28 at 11:00 PM. Items will continue to be loaded until the actual auction begins on March 25. You can preview the items on 32 Auction's page for Furry Friends, but you will not be able to place any bids until March 25th.

The auction’s name ‘Not Kitten Around’ is to bring attention to Kitten Season. Spring time is when love is in the air and we start to see "kitten season" kick into full swing. We anticipate performing over 300 spay/neuters this year to help the cat population in our community. The funds from this online auction will go toward the over $20,000 cost of spay/neuter services Furry Friends is projecting and help to cover extraordinary medical expenses for cats that need that extra TLC to get them into a loving home. You will be able to view items ahead of time and on March 25th you can start the bidding on your favorite items from the safety of your own home.

Donations to the auction from local businesses and generous individuals include art, gift baskets, pet and personal items, handmade gifts and much more.

Monnie's Journey

Feline stomatitis or Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis (FCGS) is a rare condition affecting approximately 0.7-4% of cats. It is a chronic and very painful mouth tissue condition where the tissues/gums surrounding the teeth are very inflamed.   One cat that Furry Friends currently has in our care is Monnie and he has FCGS. He came to us as an owner relinquishment when his owner could no longer care for him.

Furry Friends kitty Linus is making progress

Linus came to Furry Friends with his sister Trixie back in November, 2020. He was very skinny with a decreased appetite. Our veterinarians at Columbia River Veterinary Services examined him and recommended that he have a feeding tube since his liver seemed to be rapidly shutting down due to him not wanting to eat. Linus has cost Furry Friends $5,000 so far.
