MEOW MIXERS -- It's a big month for the Ten Lives Club, the cat rescue and adoption group in the Southtowns. At 2 p.m. Saturday, the group will dedicate a fountain in memory of Cindy Lauchert, who fostered and found homes for hundreds of kittens, in its new shelter in the former Orsini's Restaurant at 11275 Springville-Boston Road, Concord.

"We know Cindy would totally enjoy the idea of a fountain at the shelter to keep our cats amused and give them fresh drinking water," says founder Marie Edwards.

Then, a week later, from 1 to 5 p.m. April 28, the club will hold its sixth annual Furball in the Knights of Columbus Hall, 36 Pierce Ave., Hamburg. In addition to music, there will be goodie bags for the first 100 to arrive, theme baskets, auctions and a drink special called -- what else? -- the Fur Ball. Admission is $5. Children 16 and under are free.
