Dinners, yard sales, kittens abound in the Treasure Valley

Want to snuggle with some kittens? The Ontario Feral Cat Project is desperately seeking volunteers to help with cat care. The chores include serving breakfast between 8 and 10 a.m. and dinner between 5 and 6:30 p.m., with times varying according to volunteers’ work schedules. In addition to providing food and fresh water, volunteers clean cages and litter boxes and – of course – snuggle with kittens. Volunteers are welcome even if they can only put in an hour or so a week. To volunteer, call the Project’s message phone 541-823-2427. The kittens above are among those being cared for by the Ontario Feral Cat Project until they are big enough to spay/neuter and ready for their forever homes.
