In Review: Cat Adoptathon (July 2009)

On July 26th we hosted a Cat Adoptathon with Toronto Cat Rescue, and two kitten sisters were lucky to find a new forever home together!

Cat adoptathon with Toronto Cat Rescue

Thank you to all of the Toronto Cat Rescue volunteers and visitors who came in to see if any of the kittens would capture their hearts. And a huge thank you to this lovely couple who came for one kitten, but left with two. We loved seeing how the kittens were immediately at home in your arms!

Summer Music in the Garden

We just read this in the Toronto Life, and wanted to remind you about the free event!

The Toronto Music Garden kicks off its 10th season with Shauna and Friends, a showcase for cellist Shauna Rolston and a group of her upper-year students from the U of T music faculty. The program opens with Calling From Different Directions, a work written last year for the Music Garden by First Nations composer Barbara Croall, who performs here on cedar flute and traditional drum, alongside Anita McAlister on trumpet and conch shell.

A Plucky Mother’s Day Story

Duckling at Cosmopawlitan

Cool! We were (sort of) mentioned in today’s Toronto Star:

As I biked along Queens Quay West last Sunday morning, I had the opportunity to help a mother duck get her six ducklings across the streetcar tracks and into the lake.

Thank you to the motorists and streetcar drivers who stopped for the ducks.

Thank you to the girls in the pet shop who gave me a box top and food for three ducklings I found five minutes later who got left behind, and needed to be carried to the lake.

Thank you to the passersby who stopped to help me reunite the baby ducks with their family when they ran away into the bushes.

And thank you to the maintenance man who helped me catch the one remaining duckling that just would not swim toward his family, and place him safely with them.

It was 45 minutes out of my day, but it brought strangers together and showed that people still care about animals, even when it is just one baby duck. It made for a happy Mother’s Day.

Thanks to Colleen for taking the time help the family of ducks safely cross to the waterfront, and for re-uniting the lost ducklings that you found!

Duckling at Cosmopawlitan

Later that day, we found another duckling on the sidewalk… no doubt from the same flock. We released it into the harbour. We didn’t find the flock but the duckie was calling for mommy so we watched him for a while. The next day we saw the mother duck with her nine ducklings. We hope the one we released was part of the group!
