A Paint and Sip activity was a new type of event for TFC, and we are pleased to say it was totally packed and everyone had a fabulous time!

getting started

It was wonderful!!! Bri handled so much with all the scheduling, communication and coordinating sign ups, making sure the event was literally full, setting up, it felt like we just had to show up. I know how much work she put in, as well as the team, I hope you all know how grateful I am! The Feline Connection fundraising team appreciates everyone for coming together to make this happen!

The instructions

The event lasted two hours, and every kid got a pumpkin and a chance to hang out with one of TFC’s adoptable kittens.

If you look through the photos, you can spot kittens tucked in here and there around the event.

Visiting with Kittens

A total of seven kittens attended. All were exceptionally well-behaved and TFC had a lot of interest in adopting them!
