Talk turkey with tabbies: Thanksgiving with the Cats returns in Ringoes


Give thanks for cats this Thanksgiving.

From noon-4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19, Tabby’s Place: a Cat Sanctuary invites cat lovers to kick off the holiday season with a feast of feline fun.

The Thanksgiving with the Cats event is back for the first time since 2019.

Guests will enjoy holiday refreshments, self-guided tours of Tabby’s Place, mini silent auction; and a smorgasbord of kitty cuddles. Best of all, attendees will have the opportunity to feed the cats an early Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving with the Cats is a free event, but Tabby’s Place asks guests to bring much-needed donations. In addition to monetary gifts, the non-profit sanctuary needs canned and dry cat food (of any variety), non-clumping kitty litter, cat toys, and treats for its 100-plus cats to gobble.

For information, contact Tabby’s Place Director of Operations Danielle Rice at dr@tabbysplace.orgor 908-237-5300 x450. Tabby’s Place is located at 1100 US Highway 202 in Ringoes, N.J.
