Cat Heaven Rescue Cat Café and Gift Shop in Somerset West is hosting its annual “Cat Walk,” in conjunction with Virgin Active, to raise awareness of abandoned and abused animals in shelters, on Saturday November 9, at 10am. The dress code is “add a feline touch to your attire”. The departure point is Virgin Active Waterstone and the host is Elroy Stuber from Virgin Active. The destination is Cat Heavan, 35 Bright Street, Somerset West. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks will be on sale and participants will be able to enjoy the company of the 20 resident rescue kittens and browse in the gift shop. Entry is R20 for adults and children. Age restriction is 10 years, and babies in strollers travel free. Buy your ticket from Cat Heavan in advance or at the start of the walk. There will be an art auction at 11:30am. Elroy Stuber, an artist, has donated two paintings to be auctioned and Cosplay characters will be joining in. Cat Heaven Rescue Cat Café is a non-profit organisation. All funds generated by the walk go towards feeding and maintenance of the health and welfare of the resident cats, and their environment.
