Elders and Community Day Program participants had a blast this afternoon exploring a new art instillation that puts cats first!
The instillation is called 'The Cat's Meow' and is a partnership between Saskatoon's BAM Art Collective and SCAT Street Cat Rescue.
Nacho (white and orange) and Cindy (black) had a wonderful time exploring every corner, high and low, of the instillation. Our Elders and Community Day Participants sure had fun interacting with Nacho and Cindy and watching them explore.
A big thanks to Sherbrooke's own Alana Moore and Alison Fox for helping organize this excursion. And in case you were wondering, Nacho and Cindy ARE looking for their forever home:) ... See MoreSee Less
