Yard Sale/Cat Food Drive
Paula Connolly, a co-ordinator of the Cat Action Team’s “Feed the Ferals” Program, with assistance of Debbie Reid, a CAT Board member, held a yard sale/cat food drive, with a twist – buyers could pay for their yard sale purchases with a cat food donation, or cash (for cat food).
Thank you to everyone who donated cat food prior to, and during, this event. The colony cats will appreciate your kindness.
Bloomin’ Momma’s Fundraiser for “Feed the Ferals” Program
“The Bloomin’ Momma,” with help from Norma Millar, fund-raised for the Cat Action Team’s Feed the Ferals Program by offering craft items for sale. With the proceeds from their sales, she purchased cat food and then donated it to the Cat Action Team.
Thank you, Bloomin’ Momma and Norma!
Thank you to Joe and Heather Millar of Colour Blind Boutique for their donation of several bags of cat food to CAT’s The Donna Hickox Feed the Ferals Program, a portion of the proceeds from their annual Art for Animals fundraiser.
Thanks to their continuing generosity, several outdoor cats in our communities will be provided with needed food.

Cat Food Needed!
The Cat Action Team provides food where needed, thanks to the generous donations of cat food, or funds donated for cat food, from Island residents.
Donations of cat food are distributed to a number of cat colonies throughout the province – colonies that have no one caring for them, as well as to some of the caretakers who need assistance in feeding their colony cats.
Would you like to help the colony cats, too?
If so, some suggestions to consider:
- Donate cat food
- Donate opened bags of cat food
- A cat food collection drive at your school, business or in your community
- Monetary donations (do you still have pennies and wondering what to do with them?)
- Gift cards, Canadian Tire “money”
- Business owners/managers: permit an in-store cat food collection bin, donate bags or cans of cat food that have been damaged or close to expiry
To donate or in need of further information, please contact the “Feed the Ferals” co-ordinators Paula Connolly at firstname.lastname@example.org (or call 902-368-2216), or Vicky Smith at email@example.com.
An in kind donation receipt may be obtained by providing the sales receipt for the cat food along with your full name and mailing address.
Blue Ribbon Pet Supply of Charlottetown, PEI made a donation of over 150 bags of cat treats to Paula Connolly, a co-ordinator of CAT’s “Feed the Ferals” program.
Pet Valu, Summerside, fund-raised for the Cat Action Team throughout the month of April, including a special event on the 18th that included pet nail-trimming and self-serve dog wash. This store and its staff’s efforts in support of PEI’s community cats is greatly appreciated.
The Cat Action Team and the co-ordinators of The Donna Hickox Feed the Ferals Program would like to thank Pet Valu, Staff and customers for your very generous donations of cat food and gift cards during a recent month-long fundraiser. Your kindness will provide meals for many outdoor cats.
Thank you for your support!
