Sarasota, Fla. – (August 20, 2015) – JDub’s Brewing Company in partnership with Cat Depot will host an event on Sunday, August 30, 2015, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at JDub’s Brewing Company, 1215 Mango Ave, Sarasota, FL 34237. In honor of Cat Depot’s spokescat, Bow-Tie, a specially crafted beer will be available named Bow-Tie’s Brew. Guests who wear a bow tie will receive $1.00 off their first beer. Join the festivities with adoptable kittens, food truck, outdoor games, and special appearances by Bow-Tie and Cat Depot’s mascot Petunia.
Bow-Tie is one of 60 cats legally removed from a hoarding case in Charlotte County and rescued by Cat Depot. He was malnourished, had open wounds, a missing tail ad deformed ear, lost all but six teeth, and could not walk on his front legs. Today, Bow-Tie has a loving home and has gained weight, has a full coat of fur, and can walk. He is Cat Depot’s spokescat and campaigns for the 2015 Giving Challenge, as well as special needs and homeless cats just like him.
National Bow Tie Day is Friday, August 28. On any other day, wearing a bow tie might earn you some funny looks. Bow Tie Day is different, and wearers of bow ties can be found everywhere from the office to the street.
