Inside line is out the door, into the parking lot & down the street!

TLC raised $6,300 in ONE DAY!  Unfortunately, there were many others who didn't get a chance to get a tattoo by the time the doors closed because SO MANY SUPPORTERS came out for this event! TLC sincerely apologizes and we are planning another "Tat for Cats" event soon!
