Chilliwack cat donates to Animal Safe Haven

Chilliwack: Nietzsche, The Book Man's bookstore cat has raised nearly $3,000 for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven.

Nietzsche is on fire with his fundraising crusade.

The Book Man’s celebrity cat has raised another near $3,000 for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven through sales of his art calendar and ‘pawtographed’ bookmarks.

Last month, Nietzsche’s pin-up calendars, which included a variety of artist renderings of the cat, went on sale. As soon as they were printed, they were selling like hot cakes.

In just over one month, 170 calendars were sold to the tune of $2,895.20.

“I’d say that it was a total success, and am so happy that we all did our thing together to raise some funds for a very worthy cause,” said Amber Short, Nietzsche’s agent, in an email to The Progress.

Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven is a place near and dear to Nietzsche’s heart. The peaches and cream cat was a resident there prior to being adopted by the Book Man.

This recent fundraiser adds to the $250 Nietzsche raised last year for the safe haven through his bookmark sales.

The remaining 20 calendars will be available for purchase at Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven on Chilliwack Central Road.
