Thanks to all who came out to support our annual Global Cat Day celebration, we had a very successful fundraising event. For the Favorite Campus Kitty Donation Contest, our Angel Kitty Cindy won by a landslide, followed by Boze, Sage, CJ, and Harry. The fund raised today will help us pay the veterinary bills and care for our sweet campus kitties. Thank you!!!
Celebrate Global Cat Day with us!
Finally – to support Global Cat Day [which was actually in October, but the weather was too rainy], the Roadrunner Cat Coalition will have a table outside the MH Building facing the Sombrilla tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 6 from 11:00 – 2:00. We’ll have information about community resources for cats (and other pets!), lots of adorable stuffed kitties, cat beds, and greeting cards with photos of some of our beautiful campus kitties. Make a donation of any amount to vote for your favorite campus kitty! Harry aka Chap Cat is a strong favorite as he is usually on “guard duty” at CV Building 10 or at the RR Café, keeping an eye on everything! Come vote and support our campus cats! All proceeds go to help care for our campus kitties! Thanks from all of the campus kitties!

We finally had a kitty event to support Global Cat Day in the Sombrilla today. We had information about community resources for cats, lots of adorable stuffed kitties and cat beds, RRCC t-shirts and bags, and greeting cards with photos of some of our beautiful campus kitties. We also had donation jars to vote for your favorite campus kitty to be Santa’s Helper Kitty, which included Harry, Charlie, Lucifer, Speedy, and Cindy. Speedy has raised the most donations and became Santa’s Helper Kitty this year! Thanks to our generous supporters and RRCC volunteers, it was a very successful fund-raising event for our kitties!

What a great day we had to celebrate Global Cat Day! It was a huge success with our magnificent team effort. And the results are in for Homecoming Kitty….Our adorable kitten Bandit beat out Harry, CJ, Arthur, and Foxy.
In addition to raising awareness of feral cats including our UTSA cats, we had an awesome fund-raising event. Again, our loyal mascot “Harley” drew lots of admirers and had many photos taken!
Thank you everyone who came by the table to support RRCC and UTSA kitties and those who voted for Homecoming Kitty!

Thanks for your support of our National Feral Cat Day celebration. It was a big success! The RRCC gave out literature about caring for feral cats, and to raise awareness of our own feral cat population. We even had one of our members dressed up in a cat costume as our spokeskitty! By far, this was the most popular part of our event. Dr. Romo stopped by and had his picture taken with the “cat.” About 40-50 students also took pictures with the cat!
