Children sell lemonade to raise money for injured cat
A group of children in Fanwood are making New Jersey proud by raising money for an injured kitten.
The kitten was found in Scotch Plains. It was only four weeks old and was missing an ear – so rescuers named it Van Gogh.
Three children from nearby Fanwood opened a lemonade stand to raise money for the cat. Word got out, and traffic backed up on Madison Avenue where they lived with people wanting to purchase lemonade. Police were called and had to close down a road to control the traffic.
The children charged 25 cents per cup and ended up raising $150 for Van Gogh.
The cat is now being cared for by the Summit Animal Rescue Association.
