Alliday Allstar: StreetCats!

Nothing is more comforting than having a warm animal to snuggle up with during the cold days of winter (and fall!) which is why we're grateful for organizations that help the animals that warm our souls.  At this year's Alliday, we're welcoming the wonderful StreetCats to join us.  They've been saving cats in Tulsa for over ten years now with no end in sight.  They're a blessing to our city but more so, they're a blessing to cats.

Tell us a little about StreetCats, Inc.
We are an all volunteer non profit cat adoption center and gift boutique. We take in homeless cats and care for them until a home can be found. We work with vets in the Tulsa area and people who want to help homeless cats on the streets to get sterilized and vaccinated. We exist on donations only. Some of the money from donations is used to purchase items at wholesale which we in turn sell at a fair price to help with expenses.

Where are you located?
60th & S. Sheridan on the east side of the street behind Charlie’s Chicken
How does being involved in the creative handmade community affect you?
We have volunteers who have creative abilities who make items that they donate to us to sell which helps us with expenses.

What are your favorite handmade items to shop for?
At StreetCats we have Catnip Pillows made with organic catnip that many cats love. We also have totes that crafters, sewers, scrapbookers, etc. love to use and they also good for remote controls. Additionally we have handknitted dish cloths that are very popular.

What are you most looking forward to at Alliday?
Meeting new people and letting them know about StreetCats

What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Spending time with people you don’t see as often as you would like.

What holiday do you wish was everyday and why? 
Adopt A Cat Day so that all the homeless cats in Tulsa would have a warm loving home with people whom love them.

If you could create a new holiday, what would it be and why?
Love a Cat Day – because all cats need to know someone loves them
