Happy New Year!
Another year has come and gone, and it seems like it has so quickly! We hope and pray you all had a safe, and wonderful holiday season.
THANK YOU: There are so many people we want to thank. Of course, you, our awesome fans, who donate and make helping these cats possible. We know we could not do it without you!
We also want to say a special thank you to our webmasters, Damon, and Paige Bass, for creating and maintaining our website. They have been doing this for us for years and we cannot thank them enough for this kindness. It is much appreciated.
Our Christmas bake sale was an amazing success and we thank all who came out and bought goodies, our bakers, and our donors. We were so busy from setup till we shut down. We were not even able to put our merchandise out because we were nonstop from the start. We did it outside under our event tent and that was amazing. There is no way we can do that in the warmer months, but we loved this setup. Thank you all again!
ADDRESS CHANGE: A reminder that we have a new physical address for Yogie and Friends. It is now: Yogie and Friends, 140 Fob Lane, Frierson, LA 71027
We continue to need your help and there are a few ways you can do that. The following are the wish lists for supplies:
You can also make a monetary donation via:
PayPal at email@example.com
Venmo at YogieCats
Call in a donation directly to the vet clinic at 318-747-5747
VET CARE: We had two cats with ear infections, which we have no idea how they got them, but they did, and both cats developed hematomas from scratching. It does not seem to take much to cause those, but they often come back and can be difficult to deal with as a result. So far Snowball and Lucy are responding to treatment.
Lucia, our deaf cat with megacolon will be going in for a follow-up appointment and we hope the medications are doing their job.
Egon will also be going for a follow-up appointment to check his blood work. He is more than a year out from his Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) treatment, and he is doing very well.
Our plan is to also do some physicals of our more senior and geriatric cats. We have several and we want to be on top of things.
And as always, you can mail a check or money order to: Yogie and Friends, 140 Fob Lane, Frierson, LA 71027.
KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS: Attention Kroger Shoppers. Please consider helping our cats when you shop at Kroger. Our Kroger Community Rewards number is GD567, and you can find us by our name as well, Yogie and Friends FIV Positive Cat Sanctuary. When you log into your Kroger account you can select us as your charity of choice and a portion of your purchase will be donated to our rescue sanctuary. This is one of the easiest ways to help us financially when you go grocery shopping. It takes nothing out of your pockets either. How cool is that?
SPONSORSHIP: We often speak of our sponsorship program and right now we are really trying hard to get all our cats sponsored. Sponsorship is a wonderful way to help support our cats. By sponsoring one of our Yogie cats, you will be providing food, limited medical care (we know that medical bills can get extremely high and do not expect a sponsor to cover it. Unless they can, and want to), and their basic care and support. 100% of the sponsorship goes to the care of these animals. If each cat had a regular, monthly, sponsor, it would help ease the financial burden of care for the animals we provide sanctuary for.
Please note that more than one person may sponsor a cat, but rest assured that all sponsored funds are used for the ongoing care of our cats.
You can sponsor a cat for just $15 a month, $45 a quarter, or $180 a year. You can always contribute more. It all helps a great deal.
If you choose to sponsor a cat via PayPal or Venmo, please let us know the name of the cat you would like to sponsor.
WE CURRENTLY CARE FOR 63 CATS, as well as several feral cats we care for:

FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Your donations are the most important thing to help us with our animals. We are a 501(C)(3) non-profit, in good standing.
