Cats

Spa Day for Kitties

Feel like you need to just relaaaaaaaaaax? How about a spa day—with the added and extremely adorable benefit of helping local kitties? You can have just that when you go to the Spa at Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery, which will donate a very generous 20% of its spa proceeds to Furry Friends nonprofit cat rescue organization during the last two weeks of September.

Book your appointment any time between Monday, Sept. 18, through Friday, Sept. 29, and help Furry Friends rescue and care for cats until they can find permanent, loving, adoptive homes. Spa services include pampering facials, waxing, and treatments for lashes and brows. To see the full range of services, visit http://www.salmoncreekps.com/the-spa/.

Founded in 1999, Furry Friends is a nonprofit, no-kill 501(c)(3) animal rescue serving Clark County. Run entirely by volunteers, its mission is to save abused, abandoned and relinquished cats by providing them with medical care and socialization, spay/neutering, and shelter until they are placed in appropriate adoptive homes. For more information, visit www.furryfriendswa.org, email information@furryfriendswa.org, or call 360-993-1097.

Science on Tap: Decoding Feline Body Language

Dr. Tripp holds a doctorate in veterinary medicine as well as academic degrees in philosophy and music. He is an Affiliate Professor of Applied Animal Behavior at two veterinary schools, and certified by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. Dr. Tripp has published over 40 articles on pet behavior, and given over 100 lectures to veterinary associations. In addition to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, he has presented in England, Japan, Puerto Rico, and Canada. He has appeared on Animal Planet over 20 times as a content expert. Dr. Tripp has also spoken at several previous Science on Tap events in both Portland and Vancouver.

Science on Tap is a monthly lecture series at the Kiggins Theatre, offered in partnership with Via Productions (“Better Learning Through Beer”) and Washington State University Vancouver. The presentation starts at 7 p.m., but the Kiggins will open its doors at 6 p.m. so you can find a seat and purchase yummy refreshments: beer, wine, soda, pizza, and theater-style popcorn and candy. Tickets are $8 in advance (click here to purchase online, or check with the Kiggins’ box office) or $10 suggested donation at the door. Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of a few dollars. Come anyway and donate what you can! Buying a ticket in advance merely confirms that you will have a seat at the event. (…and reserving a seat is recommended, since this particular topic tends to create a packed house.)

Crazy Cat Person Tea

Here is JUST what you need right now: CATS! AND TEA! Indulge both of these passions at the Camas Public Library‘s Crazy Cat Person Tea, happening from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12.

This is for adults who love cats and wholeheartedly embrace their passion for cats, cats, and more cats—and who understand that crazy isn’t necessarily a disadvantage. Wear your favorite crazy cat attire (a bedazzled sweatshirt, perhaps, or a cardigan with appliquéd cat motif? Doesn’t matter, as long as it’s got plenty of cat hair on it), and bring your favorite cat mug and saucer.

The menu includes Tetley’s British Blend Black Tea, tea sandwiches, scones, lemon curd, disgustingly delicious litterbox cake (it’s a thing! Check out this link: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/7415/kitty-litter-cake/) and other assorted sweet treats. Table decorations will be given away as door prizes. Sign-up is required due to limited seating; call 360-834-4692 or come into the library to sign up at 625 N.E. 4th Ave. in downtown Camas.
