The Southern Alberta Calgary Cat Fanciers are holding a cat show on April 23rd and 24th 2005 at the Shouldice Arena on Home Road in Montgomery. The show will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9-5 and as usual there will be an admission charge. This will be the first show put on by this new group which is a combination of members from the Southern Alberta Cat Fanciers and the Calgary Cat Fanciers and it will be the first time the cat show will be held in this location and you're invited!
Please "Re-Lease" Me
The Cat House is coming up to our fifth anniversary in the Stadium Shopping Centre location and we are in the process of renegotiating our lease. It's hard to believe we've been here five years already - and in business for nearly fourteen years!
Spring Is Here
With the grass turning green and the buds opening on the trees we can safely say spring is here. Many of you will be doing gardening and landscaping projects so we feel this is an opportune time to remind you that The Cat House is always on the lookout for Honeysuckle wood to sell in the store. If you or anyone you know would like to have some honeysuckle trees cut back please give us a call. We will happily give you a gift certificate to The Cat House in exchange for some of that special wood that cats like oh-so-much.
Your Cats Know Spring is Here
Many of our customers are telling us stories of their cats behaviour changes in the springtime. It seems, like may of us, spring brings a renewal of energy in our pets and many cats are exhibiting a desire to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine. If you haven't seen it yet come into the store and check it out. We've included a picture so you can see some ways to help your cats enjoy the outdoors with you. We have been selling a lot of these affordable, collapsible, easily transportable enclosures. They even make strollers!
Cat Food Specials
Science Diet has very kindly provided us with a number of "Kitten Kits" to give out to customers getting a kitten for the very first time. Kits include several essential items for kittens as well as some Science Diet Kitten food samples. Quantities are limited so please call ahead to book your kit and please tell your friends about this.
Nutro continues to supply each of our customers a can of gourmet cat food each different calendar month that you come to The Cat House. Has your cat tried "Orleans seafood Jambalaya" yet?
Precise has a special offer at the moment. Any one who purchases five tins of 3Oz. Precise canned cat food and fills out the attached coupon will receive on the spot a FREE 6.6 pound bag of dry Precise cat food.
Royal Canin is offering a free metal canister with each purchase of 7 pounds or more of their dry cat food. Royal Canin is also hosting a special "Cat Day" at The Cat House on April 30th from noon to 4 PM. Visit us during those hours to receive a free toy for your kitty and coupons for Royal Canin food.
Whenever you purchase a dozen tins of any brand of canned cat food at The Cat House remember you will receive another FREE can. Also we'd like to remind you that many brands of cat food we sell have loyalty programs where you can receive a free bag of dry cat food, or a free tray of canned cat food after you have purchased a certain number of the same size product.
Cochrane Humane Society Fund-Raising For New Shelter
Our next newsletter will contain the details of a major fund-raising campaign we are undertaking for the Cochrane Humane Society to help them raise funds to build a much needed new shelter. In the meantime we are collecting coins for the shelter fund in a gigantic water bottle at the front of the store. We may not be able to raise a million dollars for them (actually their goal is almost two million) but we hope to raise a million pennies for them ($10,000.00). Additionally we have started collecting Canadian Tire money for them to help in their purchase of supplies need in their daily operations.
That's it for this issue of The Cat House Ink, we look forward to seeing you in the store!
