“They are cute,” that’s what 7-year-old Makena Myatt said about why she loves cats. Her love for cats runs so deep that she decided to make thumbprint cat magnets to raise money for Forgotten Felines.
We were watching a video and it was how to make thumbprint animals. She saw the cat and said she could do that, so they decided to make them and sell them to raise money for Forgotten Felines, said Melinda Norvell, Myatt’s mother. “It just took off.”
Norvell said they started during Memorial Day weekend, and in less than a week, they had brought in $138.
“She has a heart of service and wants to give back,” Norvell said about Myatt.
Myatt has a shelter cat named Storm.
“Forgotten Felines is supposed to be a trap, neuter and return program where we go to feral cat colonies and fix them, vaccinate them and vet them then turn them back loose, but it has turned more into a rescue,” Ashley Day, director of Forgotten Felines.
Myatt’s magnets are $2.00 each and all of the profits go towards the Forgotten Felines program.
Magnets can be purchased at Forgotten Felines of Corbin, KY INC.
