Seventh graders at Chautauqua Lake Central School recently collected items for the Westfield Stray Cat Rescue (WSCR). In one week, students and staff collected over 20 pounds each of cat food and litter, several cat beds, and 18 cat toys and treats. They also collected hand and dish soaps, spray cleanser, bleach, laundry detergent, disinfectant wipes, garbage bags, and 20 rolls of paper towels. Showing some of the items collected are Class of 2021 officers (left to right) Calla Zarpentine, co-president; Lauren Lindsey, co-treasurer; Isabella Gilmore and Amelia Brown, co-vice presidents; Raegan Ward and Rachel Wilson, co-secretaries; Marcus Fredrick, co-president; and Noah Flurie, co-treasurer. Class advisers are teachers Brian Binkley and Chris Rammacher. The Westfield Stray Cat Rescue was organized in 2007 to address the problem of abandoned and homeless cats in the Westfield area. Cats are housed in their temporary shelters until they have found permanent homes. The rescued cats and kittens receive medical attention, tests, vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered before they are adopted. Westfield Stray Cat Rescue is a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation located at 59 E. Main St. The Thrifty Kitty store, located at the same address, is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 326-2404 for more information, or visit
