Each month we choose a different cat-related charity to receive 5% of the gross sales for that month. We decided to give 5% of the total sale, rather than 5% of “profits” so that customers will know exactly how much of their purchase is going to support the cats.
NEW! The monthly charity will also receive a case of 25 cage scratchers from Stretch & Scratch!
