ZUMBA for Kitties

Every Monday from 7-8pm in the rec room of Nichols Park (53rd and Kenwood), right around the corner from Hyde Park Animal Clinic, is Kim's ZUMBA for the KITTIES class.

Zumba is a dance fitness program based on international rhythms such as merengue, salsa, cumbia, and Bollywood and hip-hop. You don't need to be a dancer or have any prior experience, and it's so much fun you barely feel like you're working out... even though you can burn several hundred calories in an hour-long class! Kim is a certified Zumba instructor and one of our dedicated volunteers. COST: ONLY $5 (plus any extra donation you feel like giving to the cats). All profits are donated to Hyde Park Cats. So you really have no excuse for not exercising on Mondays.

Hope to see you "meow-ving" your body at a Zumba class very soon! THANKS KIM!

THANKS HYDE PARK HERALD, Chicago's oldest community newspaper, for running "cat of the week" ads for us. Big purrs to Anna F. for following through on this fantastic idea and to Erika M. for formatting and facilitating the ads themselves. This week's Cat of the Week is Kitty, who is still seeking her furrever home after spending most of a year in a foster home.
