DO you want to get properly organised this year, well then the Compass Cares’ “Cats of Durban” calendar will not only help you plan your year, it will also help save the lives of unwanted kittens.
Every five calendars sold will pay for one sterilisation of a stray or feral cat. Sterilising one cat means preventing potentially 2 000 unwanted kittens from being born in just four years, and this equates to 2 000 000 kittens in eight years.

Buying a Cats of Durban calendar will help unappreciated cats of Durban that provide a service to the city by keeping down the rat, mice and cockroach population.

The A3 wall calendar sells for R100, excluding postage. To order, phone Dianne Reddy on 031 267 9700 or email calendars@compass.za.net
The following retailers also stock the calendar - Montclair vets, Petland, Muddy Dog, The Oyster Box, Cherish in Westville, Cotswold Caltex, Giba Gorge, Sunrae Valley Stables and Burgess Florist.

Compass Cares, an initiative of Compass Medical Waste Services, secured four ambassadors to lend their name to the Cats of Durban calendar campaign.

Alice Leah is a qualified teacher and previous editor recently started a company called The A-List and lends her writing, networking, organising and philanthropist skills to a number of charities, including The Robin Hood Foundation, The Sunflower Fund, Talk Sign and now the Compass Cares Cats of Durban calendar cam- paign.

Leah is passionate about making a difference and lives by the code that one person cannot do everything, but everyone can do something.

Bryan Hiles won the theatre lead actor award for the musical Into the Woods at the 14th annual Durban Theatre Awards.
He is one of Durban’s most versatile actors and is passionate about cats.
His two fur children, Meelo and Rufus, “found him” and captured his heart, and his love for cats makes him the perfect ambassador for the Cats of Durban calendar campaign.

Hiles reached new levels of silliness as the cowardly knight, Sir Ninnyliver, in KicksArts rendition of Sleeping Beauty which showed at the Elizabeth Sneddon theatre between the 2 December 2016 and 8 January.

Fashion designer, Kathrin Kidger, is fiercely patriotic and her entire “made in South Africa” range of upmarket ladies wear reflects her southern African heritage.

Kidger has been involved with the Sunflower Fund for over 10 years, is an ambassador of the KZN Blind & Deaf Society’s Talk Sign campaign and now draws attention to the plight of stray and feral cats through the calendar campaign.

Actress and singer Liesl Coppin is also an ambassador calendar campaign and recently adopted two cats from Cats of Durban.
“Roo and Gigi are part of my family and rule the house completely,’’ says Coppin.

Coppin and her daughter Leah both starred in the Playhouse’s Sound of Music, which showed from the 26 November to 30 December 2016 at the Opera Theatre.
