I love cats, I do. We currently have three rescues in my family: Swamper (grumpy elder), Wendy-O (formerly feral perma-kitten), and Stanley (Swamper's kitten-sized shadow, also formerly feral). All of whom have taught me about patience, trust and devotion in their own way. As a volunteer for SAFeR, I am continually bowled over by the generosity, care and love that they provide for cats in our community. People may not realize that SAFeR is one of the only shelters in our area that refuse to euthanize surrendered cats. This means many shelters will surrender their less adoptable or ailing cats to SAFeR, knowing they'll be in good hands. I hope to be able to do even more for this amazing organization in the future.

Our country is struggling and we're all keenly aware of the distressing truth that BIPOC communities are struggling (and have historically struggled) more than anyone else. Working closely with the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity at the UW, I've become aware of the hard work this organization undertakes to effect change in our community. I find that contributing to this fund is one small way that I can be part of that change through donations from the sales of my artwork. In time, I hope to contribute more!
