By Norwalk Reflector staff • Feb 7, 2019 at 10:00 AM

UNIONTOWN — With each purr, meow and swaying tail, cats are communicating with us.

Join Tabitha Kucera CCBC, RVT, KPA-CTP and owner of Chirrups and Chatter at 1 p.m. Saturday for a “cat-ivating” session on everything cat communication.

Kucera will discuss feline body language, how scents affect cats’ behaviors, cat vocalizations, helping cats through communication and ways you can partake in cat chats.

This event is hosted by Cripple Creek Ferals and Friends and will be held at the Greentown Volunteer Fire Department, 10100 Cleveland Ave. NW, Uniontown. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided. Participants can reserve their spot through PayPal at [email protected] or by mail at CCFF, P.O. Box 172 Uniontown, Ohio 44685 with a note that the donation is for the “cat behavior seminar.”

Since its inception in 2011, Cripple Creek Ferals and Friends volunteers have trapped/neutered/returned (TNR) more than 1,250 cats. Several of these cats were made possible by three grants from the Akron Community Foundation and one from Alley Cat Allies.

Cripple Creek Ferals and Friends also offers free educational seminars to the public and work with city councils to amend ordinances pertaining to community cats, advocate on behalf of cats with apartment managers, mobile home park managers and business owners. While the group doesn’t have a shelter, volunteers offer sanctuary to special-needs cats with no other options. These cats often require extensive medical treatments and care. In addition, they offer sanctuary to cats with social and behavioral issues that are not candidates for adoption.

In addition to their mission to TNR, the group also strives to make sure these cats are given the best possible life the rescue can offer. The group is a non-profit organization and depends on donations to continue its work.
