Fur flies at feline fiesta on ‘Cinco de Meow’

KIPU — Cinco de Mayo took on a feline twist Saturday as the Kaua‘i Humane Society turned the celebration into a Feline Fiesta.

Working with all things feline, photographer Carol Ann Davis was available for feline portraits, although she admitted cats don’t really like their pictures taken.

At the  fundraiser for the Kaua‘i Humane Society, the goal of getting cats and kittens adopted appeared to be working as volunteers interrupted the fun atmosphere of activities and information with announcements of “another one adopted” for the special $5 for adult cats.

Carol Everett, a Kaua‘i Humane Society volunteer, pulled out all the stops, dressing up as a human-sized feline and even pulling out a litter box cake from the refrigerator.

The very real-looking consumable cake was created using Oreo cookies, Tootsie Roll candies and cake mix.

Feline afficionados wanting to take advantage of the Spanish influence could indulge in tacos for lunch from Pepe’s Rockin’ Tacos,  as well as create catnip margaritas for their feline pets, browse through feline furniture from four-legged furniture.com created by Corey Ansley and browse through special feline accessories and foods.

Tickets for KHS’s 60th Anniversary Celebration May 12 at the Kaua‘i Marriott Resort and Beach Club were also available.

The anniversary celebration tickets are also available online at www.kauaihumane.org although tickets ordered online after May 5 will be available for pickup at the registration desk at the entrance to the event, which runs from 5:30 to 11 p.m.

Call 632-0610 ext. 106 for more information.
