    ATTN: New England Cat Lovers - Art Exhibit to Benefit the Gifford Cat Shelter in Brighton, MA!

    “Inseparable Companions,” a collection of animal paintings by Allston artist Christine Winship, is currently on exhibit at Athan’s Bakery & Cafe, 407 Washington Street, Brighton. Thanks to the generosity of the artist and Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., the non-profit sponsoring the exhibit, 10% of the sales of these paintings will be donated to the Gifford Cat Shelter.

    For more info, see http://www.giffordcatshelter.org/upcoming-events/ and http://www.giffordcatshelter.org/about-us/.

    The Gifford Cat Shelter is a cageless, no-kill facility founded in 1884 and sponsored by Ellen Gifford. The shelter is a pioneer in creating an environment that does not confine cats to small, movement-restricting cages.

    It is a WONDERFUL place! I volunteered there for a while way back when. I am friends to this day with the woman who was the manager of the shelter then, who now lives in Los Angeles.

    I wish I still lived close enough to go to this exhibit (and volunteer at the Gifford)!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    Christine, known as the Pedigree Artist, specializes in pet and animal portraits. A public wine and hors d’ oeuvres reception for the exhibit will be held on Sunday July 28th from 7-8:30 pm. The exhibition runs through August 31 and is open everyday from 8:00 am – 10:00 pm.

    That was on one of the links that was posted.

    Time helps the sadness subside, but the memories remain forever.
