A Big Announcement

We are thrilled to announce that officially, finally, and all those things we have insurance! This may sound like a non-announcement but it means that STAR will be able to do events now with more animals like dogs (we love dogs!) and exotics (we love exotics!) and up the ante when it comes to all things cats!

We are working on the TNR program for this summer as well starting on Binghamton’s South Side and finding other colonies to help out with. Insurance was a must-have when dealing with populations of stray and feral cats because we want to take care of our volunteers as well as the critters.

And happily, this is only the first two announcements of some pretty awesome things coming up. All paws on deck – we’ve got a big, busy summer on the way!   -Eithne

Adoption Event, 1/25/15

We held our first adoption event of the season on Sunday, January 25, at Creature Comforts.  We had seven kitties to show off and hopefully find new families for.  We had some great volunteers come out and donate their time: Wendy, Cathy, Tonya. Sarah and Lani dropped by to say hello. Milo, who found his new family at our last adoption event, came in on the leash with them to show off his skills.

We had lots of people come through to say hello and donate to us. We were able to do some education work, and I was amazed at the amount of questions people asked, not only about our kitties but about theirs. Our volunteers are very knowledgeable and were able to help answer all of them. Wendy is the master at walking a cat on a leash. She had Poppy on one and was able to show her off to the crowds. Poppy was so content that we kept her outside the cage on the table with the leash on.

Jennifer and April from Jimmy J’s Avian Rescue came in to say hello. They brought Oliver, the moluccan cockatoo which is always fun.  They have been such great supporters of our events and we appreciate their support. Rescues working with rescues.

While we didn’t send any kitties home that day, it was still a success. We did lots of outreach and education.  Meet and greets are very important in our work.  We are planning on doing more events there on Sundays.  As soon as we know when, we will be sure to let you know.  Thank you Creature Comforts for all your support. We can’t wait to be back there very soon.

They are approximately five years old, and have been together since they were kits. They will come with a two story Critter Nation cage, with litter pans, dishes, food, bedding and toys. Both are very social and playful, and enjoy walking outside on harness. Excellent ferrets for beginners or for experienced ferret owners. Both are used to meeting new ferrets within their foster home and are not aggressive in that regard.

Adoptable Kitten Introductions

Ash
Ash
Ash: He is a feisty, energetic, love bug.  If you’re looking for a kitty that will keep you on your toes, but still snuggle with you at night, he’s the one you want.
I say he’s adventurous, which is just a nice way of saying troublemaker.  He is very attached to his sister Poppy, they love to play and nap together.  He likes to snuggle at night, but is usually too busy with his adventures to snuggle during the day.

Poppy:  She is rather curious and very independent. She will investigate everything, and loves to go on adventures with her brother Ash. She loves being the only girl, and kicks her brothers butt on a regular bases.  Her and Ash are extremely attached to one another, they nap together all the time.

Aspen: He is a rather classy, regal gentleman.  He loves to spend time by himself, or snuggling in your lap.  He gives kitty kisses and loves taking naps with you.

The adoption fee for each is $65. Please fill out the form in the previous kitten post or contact starnetworkpresident@gmail.com if interested.
