Pinehurst Country Club

It's at Pinehurst Country Club again this year, with CBS4's Ed Greene as master of ceremonies and Douglas M. Tisdale serving as our auctioneer. We will have our signature fiberglass cats in 4 sizes, along with the ever popular kitten paintings. New this year are the Flat Cats!

Take a look for yourself: http://youtu.be/px_CPfNT_kE We'll also be welcoming Clay Cats to the auction (and we'll have those pictured soon).
