Purrs Thursday in the Pearl:
This August 2nd, the First Thursday art walk in Portland is your chance to bring stunning artwork, along with the artist who created it, into your home.
A special “Purrs Thursday” display at Tufenkian Artisan Carpets in the Pearl District will feature feline artists from the Oregon Humane Society. The evocative abstract paintings by cats will be available for purchase, and the cats themselves will be available for adoption.
Complimentary wine and other refreshments provided by Tufenkian Artisan Carpets, the sponsor of Purrs Thursday. All proceeds will benefit the Oregon Humane Society.
The First Thursday art walk is a Portland tradition, with a host of galleries offering special exhibitions and receptions. Visit the First Thursday website for details.

Is Your Cat the Cutest?
Although our feline friends cannot 'purrsonally' attend the Purrs Thursday event with their people, we at OHS want to provide a means for people to show off their fabulous felines.
If you'll be attending Purrs Thursday, we invite you to enter a photo of your adorable kitty in our Cutest Cat Contest. Voting and the winning announcement will take place at the event. You must be present to win. Get all the details here.
UPDATE: Contest entry closed at the end of Sunday, July 29.
