Art Project Benefits Cats

Cincinnati, Ohio animal shelter personnel were surprised to discover 40 stray cats living in the abandoned buildings of a manufacturing site north of the city. The cats' caretaker (the site watchman) couldn't afford any health care, only to feed the cats, leaving their population to rapidly increase. After the discovery donated food, spay/neuter services, and health care were provided, but more funding is needed. Local artists stepped up and created many beautiful works with the cats as their subjects, and named the effort Animal Rescue Art Project 2009. Many of the cats are available for adoption, but even if you live outside Ohio, you can help. The artists' work is available on eBay.
