The Teal Cat Project

No home is complete without an ocean bright kitty companion. The Teal Cat Project, established by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Denise Muller, and Anna Dorfman, works towards decreasing feral cat populations. The most recent TCP campaign was based in NYC, with proceeds of all Teal Cats and other items going towards NYC Feral Cat Initiative.

 

How It Works

Teal Cats are vintage ceramic cats that have been donated to the TCP and then painted, numbered, and labeled. Each one is not only a beautiful collector’s item, but a symbol of the greater effort in helping save cat lives. The funds raised from selling the Cats fuel local trap-neuter-release (TNR) missions, thus reducing the number of feral cats which fall victim to natural predators, inclement weather, scarce food sources, and other dangers of homelessness.

The Cats

Each Teal Cat is unique in many ways. Here are just few of them:

All of the past Teal Cats have been “adopted”, but TCP has some more on the way.  Head over the Blog for some good reading while you await the new litter! TCP is on Facebook, too.
