A fascinating film about cat rescue…
Marcy and Cynthia address their readers.
Cynthia: We are so excited to share news on this wonderful documentary called The Cat Rescuers.
Marcy: This character driven film follows four ferociously dedicated cat rescuers in New York City as they TNR (trap-neuter-return), rescue, and adopt out cats in heroic efforts to mitigate the city’s exploding cat population.
Cynthia: Most of the film is finished, they simply need completion costs, which is why they launched a Kickstarter campaign, HelpTheCatRescuers.com.
Cynthia: And we’re helping the Help The Cat Rescuers campaign in our own way. Tell ’em Marcy.
Marcy: We’re offering the campaign some of our rad Marcy Merch to be featured for their Kickstarter rewards. Our “Hell No Kitty” pouches and #meow Book Bags to be exact.
Cynthia: Those will be rolled out a little later in the campaign and we’ll be sure to update the post when that happens. (update below)
Marcy: In the meantime, our friends at NotSo Kitty and Squirrel Den Studio are providing their own rad rewards.
Just then, Penelope Kitten enters.
She is wearing gym shorts, a ringer tee, and carrying a kickball.
penelope kitten (squeaking): ready for kickoff.
Cynthia: Oh P, it’s not a kickball game, it’s a Kickstarter campaign.
penelope kitten: yeah yeah. gonna start kicking. i’m up first.
Cynthia: Hmmm… I guess we could kick start the Kickstarter campaign with a game of KickBall. Although the campaign is more of a Kick-completer than a Kick-starter.
penelope kitten: got it. we kick backwards.
Cynthia: I wouldn’t want to trip though. But hey! At least the ball won’t bonk me on the nose.
Marcy: Both of you please shut up! You are confusing everyone.
penelope kitten (squeaking): oops.
Marcy: Okay. So. The Cat Rescuers documentary by award winning filmmakers, Rob Fruchtman and Steve Lawrence, is so compelling, so captivating, and so cat-tastic, I truly believe it is going to catapult cat rescue and TNR into another level of awareness and action.
Cynthia: Because the exploding cat population problem is a problem that can be fixed.
Marcy: The Help The Cat Rescuers Kickstarter campaign runs through May 25, 20017.
Cynthia: Please consider donating to the campaign and/or sharing on social media channels and to your cat loving friends.
We love cat rescuers! ♥♥♥
May 8th Update:
Yay! Our Marcy Rewards for the campaign just went live! But even better – the campaign is 80% funded!!!
Woo hoooooo!!!!! We are thrilled! Gotta keep it going though! Just under $10,000 to raise in 17 days. We can do it!!
Sounds like a good cause. I love the Squirrel Den t-shirts. When will the documentary be finished?
Oh yes – a great cause! the filmmakers did an excellent job of making cat rescue/TNR engaging and encouraging! Not sure when it will be completed. The Kickstarter campaign ends May 25th and since most of the film is already finished it shouldn’t be long.
This is so wonderful!!! I love those t-shirts. Thank you Marcy, for being so giving and helping your fellow cat-kind!!
Aren’t they the cutest?! My favorite is the David Bowie. Although, I am partial to the PussyHat one too!
Those graphic tees are fantastic rewards! Kickstarter really does set it up nicely to roll out your campaign, share a video, and then tier rewards as thanks for donations. Thanks for sharing this campaign! I remember you writing about TNR campaigns in the past, so this is a great way to support a group who’s already doing it and just needs more help to scale up.
Their Kickstarter campaign is going gangbusters! They are almost halfway funded!
I can’t wait to see the finished documentary! Hey, Marcy, does this mean you’re becoming a movie producer?
We can’t wait either!! It is sooo good already!!
