It’s time to celebrate National Cat Week this first week of November. To do just that, two nonprofits in Naples, Florida, are teaming up to let the community enjoy cats of all sizes as well as show their support for our feline friends.
From November 1-7, 2013, guests to Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens can celebrate National Cat Week by donating toys or supplies for the wild cats at Naples Zoo or the domestic felines at the Humane Society Naples. Donations for both organizations can be dropped off at Naples Zoo.
While visiting the Zoo, guests can enjoy a variety of exotic cats at the Zoo’s “Meet the Keeper Series” featuring cheetahs, African lions, and Malayan tigers as well as see the ocelots in the Safari Canyon feature shows.
