Spayghetti NO Balls


On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese, your pets will lose their balls, for limited fees. For the second year in a row, Spay and Neuter Idaho Pets is hosting a spaghetti feed to raise money to assist low-income pet owners and caregivers of feral cats with the costs of spaying and neutering. Makes sense, right? When most people think of chopping off their cat's cojones, they think of spaghetti and meatballs. No? Are we nuts?

On Sunday, Feb. 28, at Rembrandt's Coffee House in Eagle, you can join your fellow ball buddies and castration cohorts for a spaghetti spay-cation. The $25 feast includes spaghetti, salad, garlic bread, dessert, coffee and no-host beer and wine provided by Woodriver Cellars. And while it might feel a little strange to chomp down on that meatball or slurp up a long noodle, rest assured that your awkward dining experience will help out a good testi-cause. According to SNIP, more than 12,000 dogs and cats were killed in Boise-area shelters due to overpopulation in 2009.

To show all your pals that you say "no to nads," you can also purchase a fetching Spayghetti No Balls T-shirt while enjoying the sounds of Blaze 'n' Kelly and the hip-shaking of Star Belly bellydancers.

Sunday, Feb. 28, 4 p.m.-7 p.m., $25, Rembrandt's Coffee House, 93 S. Eagle Road, Eagle, 208-938-1564,
