The Teal Cat Project

This holiday season I’m focusing a lot less on buying people STUFF and more on supporting small local businesses, making gifts for people, and giving donations to non-profit groups. When I saw a link to the Teal Cat Project on Door Sixteen’s twitter, I knew this was perfect gift for a good friend whom we jokingly call ‘The Cat Pusher’.  Friendly teasing aside, we wouldn’t have Paloma were it not for her efforts at saving the lives of kittens in kill shelters, plus she’s also a heck of a great pet sitter.

The Teal Cat Project donates money to non-profit groups helping cats, donors are rewarded with one of these adorable teal kitty tchotchkes. (They also have shirts if you aren’t interested in a statue). My order arrived yesterday, and I shot a few photos of Paloma hanging out with it before adding it to the small stack of ‘stuff to be wrapped’ slowly accumulating on the dining room table. Sigh.
