Saturday, Nov. 21: Whiskers & Whiskey

The Cat Connection is a Boston area nonprofit that rescues, fosters and adopts out cats; cares for local feral colonies; and ensures that more felines will live happily ever after in loving homes. On Nov. 21, The Cat Connection will be using the internet to both entertain and galvanize cat lovers worldwide with its Whiskers & Whiskey benefit, featuring a VIP room with the Kitten Lady, Hannah Shaw; a whiskey tour from Galway, Ireland; a Hollywood FX demonstration; a pianist from the Israeli Chamber Project; and much more. The event goes from 7 to 10:30 p.m. EST.

Thursday, Nov. 26: Happy Thanksgiving!

We humans love all the yummy food that comes with this holiday. While you might be tempted to let your kitty indulge, too, lots of Thanksgiving foods can be harmful to our feline friends.
