Rene Luther decorates the all new and improved Cat House #1

Animal Friendly - all Vegetarian
Sunday November 18th 4 pm or so

Our Vegetarian Thanksgiving Dinner is brought to you by our very own Chef Mariza Soliman. Something to make you and all the animals happy. If you haven't tasted Mariza's goodies yet, you'll just have to take my word for it that she does an outstanding job on anything she cooks.

This is at Rikki's Retreat - NOT the Refuge. Less than 15 miles from Rikki's Refuge.

e-mail for directions if you'd like to attend.

Mariza will probably be there most of the day. I'm going to try to get there as soon as I can get out of Rikki's, hopefully well before noon.

Mariza says come on out 4, 5 pm or so and dinner will be ready when it's ready.

If you want to socialize, mow grass or mop floors, feel free to come early.

Mariza will be providing all food. And when she cooks - she cooks!!!! If you have something special you really want to bring (vegetarian) you certainly may, but there is no necessity to.

I will be providing soda, beer and wine. If you want something else, please bring it.

Mariza is cooking for the 30 RSVPs..... However this means she will have food for 90 !!!!! So if you were late and didn't RSVP in time or if you want to bring a friend or two --- no problem.

See you Sunday. Kerry

ps It's really hard to find in the dark if it's your first visit - so come early

Rene Luther makes Doggy Downs an artistic adventure!

We must ask you to leave your pets at home, our mascots are very protective of their home.

Please keep in mind that animals come with built-in weaponry (horns, hoofs, fangs, claws) which they can and will use, sometimes without warning!
