Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You may not be able to come out to the shelter on a regular basis, but you can be a seamstress or tailor at home! You’re excited by the idea of learning what cozy things the shelter’s cats need and then exploring patterns and picking out the perfect fabric to go with it. You may not have sewn cat goodies before, but you’re always up for learning something new to sew.
