It’s rare that pottery and cats come together, but in this case, it’s a perfect match.
The proceeds from this December’s Potters Market in Southfield, Michigan will be donated to the New Beginning Animal Rescue. Bridget Blosser, who co-coordinates the pottery show each year, knew that her late husband, Charlie Blosser would be pleased with this year’s choice of charity.
Charlie Blosser taught pottery at Oakland Community College, during which time he kept a cat in the pottery lab. Charlie rescued the three cats that he kept in the lab during his time teaching, and also rescued additional cats in need of homes. Charlie kept these cats in a cage until he had found a new home for each, giving them a chance at a better life.
Charlie died in 2014, but Bridget still has cats in her home.
The donation from the Potters Market will come just in time for kitten season. New Beginning Animal Rescue plans to use the donations to pay for the veterinary treatment that kittens and their mothers will need. Each spring brings about an influx of kittens, and the New Beginning Animal Rescue works to ensure that the kittens and their mothers all find good homes.
If you’re looking for a way to make a difference each spring, then consider donating to your local cat rescue.
