Cat friendly businesses
I just got back from the accountant a while ago. They're a nice firm run by a cat friendly man who has cats of his own. When we were looking for accountants, we called around, and when he heard that I was calling on behalf of the Society, he immediately said that he liked cats and would be happy to help us out at a cheaper price.
It's not just the cheaper price (though that certainly helps!), but it's quite sweet to go into a meeting and after all the formal stuff has been settled, people start whipping out their phones to show you photos of their cats! More importantly, I think it's important we try and support cat friendly businesses when we can. A lot of the time, people have problems because people DON'T like cats and the cats are seen as a hindrance to their businesses. It's encouraging to let them know that people do support their animal friendly practices.
When we have committee dinners, we try to eat at establishments we know are cat friendly. This means restaurants and places that support TNRM or who may even have set up a cat cafe to lure the cats away from their restaurants for TNRM. There's so much negative pressure brought to bear on these kind people - now it's time for some positive reinforcement!
