The Cheetah Lady Turned 80!

Wednesday June 22nd was Cat Ambassador Program founder Cathryn Hilker’s 80th birthday.

In honor of her long and very substantial accomplishments, U.S Senator Rob Portman recognized her on the floor of the U.S. Senate, and Mayor Mark Mallory declared June 22nd officially to be “Cathryn Hilker Day” in Cincinnati.

Cincinnatian’s may have seen this billboard on the I-75 and the I-71 freeways.

Cathryn is a living legend, we are proud to carry forth the program she created and has nurtured through the years.  If you are new to the blog or want to learn more about Cathryn, watch this tribute video, made when she was honored as a “Great Living Cincinnatian” last year.
