The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter & Sanctuary will be holding their annual birthday part on September 20, 2014. The event, long a staple of the Shelter's yearly calendar will showcase the adoption center, programs and of course, the cats. The birthday party will be held at the Shelter from noon until 8:30 p.m.
Much like all the cats say daily, Audrey II just wants you to "FEED ME!" So join us and feed the kitties treats while you treat yourself to this not-so-guilty pleasure. From IMDB.com, "Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik's, a flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard, and is berated by Mr. Mushnik daily. One day as Seymour is seeking a new mysterious plant, he finds a very mysterious unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper. Soon enough, Seymour feeds Audrey's sadistic dentist boyfriend to the plant and later, Mushnik for witnessing the death of Audrey's ex. Will Audrey II take over the world or will Seymour and Audrey defeat it?"
