Tails of the Painted Cats brings unique art and a love of cats together for all to enjoy. For the sixth year, the Painted Cats are back, raising funds for the shelter cats and community outreach programs. 

During the 2015 Tails of the Painted Cats Gala Dinner & Auction, we raised an unprecedented $106,000 for the Cat Care Society shelter cats. The Painted Cats success is possible thanks to our devoted and talented artists, our generous sponsors and donors, and our dedicated committee members. Thank you to everyone involved who made this possible in 2015. We are thrilled to launch 2017 Tails of the Painted Cats which promises to be the best one yet!

This year we are featuring 31 painted cats, including our new Mini Cat series. Returning this year are the 'Flat Cats' Paintings and 'Clay Cats' Pottery. New this year, we are featuring the 'Paper Cats' Vintage Framed Postcard series and the
 ‘Wine Cats’ Silent Auction where we will feature a trip to Napa Valley, a trip to Sonoma and 20 individual bottles of wine. The trips are valued at approximately $4,000 each and the wine is valued at $50-$450 each! 

The 2017 Tails of the Painted Cats Gala Dinner & Auction will be held at Pinehurst Country Club on Saturday, September 16th from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm. The evening's itinerary includes silent and live auctions, heads or tails game, paddle raiser donations and our shelter cat-themed donation cards. Returning for the fourth year is Denver's 'Auctioneer Extraordinaire' Doug Tisdale to run the live auction and serving as a Siamese Savior event sponsor. Joining him on stage will be Channel 2 News Anchor (and life-long cat lover) Ernie Bjorkman as Master of Ceremonies.
