Alpha doing a bit better today. She is strong enough to hiss at Kathryn and climb up on her scratching post bed.

Yesterday’s Project Day Lunch
We are closed on Thursday’s so that is the day we move cats or do extra projects. Last Thursday we moved cats which meant Thursday this week, (yesterday) was project day. Deb Quimby sent lunch for the staff, volunteers, and interns. Lunch was from sandwiches from Which-Wich along with HUGE chocolate chip cookies for dessert. She said, “what’s a lunch without a cookie?” As you can everyone, THEY LOVED IT!!
Coordinator Report – Lauren Grant – 9/6/2018
Had a great project day today!
Multiple volunteers and interns helped cleaning the outback tiger cages. They made all the way to the second cage after the tunnel (can’t remember if it’s 5 or 6) and all the ones they’ve finished look great!
Lots of enrichment and operant sign-offs were done today. A great big thanks to one of our supporters, Deb Quimby, for donating lunch for all our hard workers today! There are even some leftovers for our volunteers tomorrow too!
There were people working on the cell tower today. Someone will probably be back Fri or Mon to keep working on it. Easy Street is still closed for the moment so the signs are staying out on Gunn Hwy to direct traffic to the light.
That’s about it! -Lauren Grant
