Calling all friends of cats!

Kindred invites you to attend its first-ever gathering; with a vision of building a community of caring individuals who can improve the welfare of stray cats in Sri Lanka, one feline at time.

Due to cats’ inherently high fertility rates and people’s lack of awareness, reluctance or negligence to get their pets sterilized, there is now an overpopulation of cats living in the streets of Colombo without proper medical attention or care. Mother cats and kittens are most vulnerable; with nothing to eat, they can become sickly and starve to death. Unfortunately, there are simply not enough shelters to care for them all.

It is up to you and I, and others like us, to form a kindred community to tend and defend Colombo’s stray cat population in any way we can.

To kick things off, Kindred is having a pop up event on July 13 at Hatch located at No. 14, Sir Baron Jayathilaka Mawatha, Colombo 01, from 10am till 4pm to raise awareness and funds towards medicating, relocating, and caring for cats in need. The entrance to the cat friendly event is by donation.

A group of animal welfare specialists and activists that include Dr. Eranda Rajapakse, Shanuki de Alwis and Manoja Weerakkody will join 2.30pm onwards to catch us up on the current situation, and they will be available to answer any questions or doubts you may have about cats, serialization and adoption.

There will be kittens from the Animal Welfare and Protection Association of Sri Lanka. So come smother them with love. In addition, get in the photo booth to make memories and take a picture with the cats that you adopt at the event! Kindred will be selling merchandise along with other fantastic stalls with unique items like Night Shades Stationary, Shoelace Studios, SAND Concepts,; with sweet treats from Tiers n Layers and Cake n Bake by Pixie Dust.

At Kindred Colombo, they are driven by a single goal; to do its part in making the world a better place for all cats. Kindred aims to be a safe space for the cats and rescuers alike by providing a comprehensive solution that covers rescue, foster, adoption, sterilization, education and everything in between while working in collaboration with existing rescue organizations.
