To the Editor:

Wells Valley Cat Sanctuary, Inc. would like to thank all of those who made our first official fundraiser a success.

Our indoor flea market Nov. 9, 2013, was well attended by vendors and customers.

We are grateful to The Spectrum for publishing information about the event, and to local businesses and individuals who donated items for us to sell at our tables.

We especially would like to thank Dolly's Wine Boutique for donating two beautifully hand-painted wine glasses, Bridgewater Chocolates for donating boxes of its delicious chocolate, Sharon Lerner for donating signed copies of her book, "Black Beauty," and Debby Choma for donating a beautiful handmade quilt.

And, of course, we would like to thank all the people who made cash donations to help support our mission.

We had the opportunity to introduce those who attended to some of our permanent resident cats and to share with them what we hope to do in assisting abandoned and feral cats and cat colonies in the future.

We still have a long way to go to accomplish our goals, and hope we can count on continued support from everyone.

Thank you all so much.
