Feline Friday: Make A Change For One Pet

MeOW-llo Everypawdy, it’s furinally Furiday. WooHooooooo  Me has no idea why that’s so x’citin’, but it is. Don’t furget, our Service Cat Furidays will return in February; and we’ll be pickin’ up where we left off meowin’ ‘bout Feline Nutrition. So, ifin ya’ have any questions, purrlease let us know. Your questions don’t have to be limited to nutrition. We will continue the series throughout the year.

          I’s can’t wait sissy. I’s do luvs our Service Cat postys.    

 

Yep, me too Raena. Hey, did you know yesfurday was National Change a Pet’s Life Day? We don’t post on Fursdays, but me thought we could post ‘bout it today. Our lives were fur sure changed when mommy adopted us. Me knows sis Lexi used to meow the same thing. Me reckons ifin not fur mommy, lots of kitties wouldn’t have made it.

 

Dezi lays on chair arm and Raena on chair back

 

 

 

          Really sissy? I’s knew she saved us, but I’s didn’t know she saved others.  

 

Yeah Raena, mommy used to foster kitties who had lost their furry mommies. Y, Sis Lexi was one of those kitties. Me was kind’a one of those kitties. Even tho’ me was a few weeks old when me met mommy, me wouldn’t have lived ifin she hadn’t saved me and brought me home to live with her and sis Lexi. Those early days sure were scary. But with mommy’s luv and care, me thrived and grew into the big bootyful kitty girly you see today. 

 

          Me too sissy. Mommy’s always sayin’ she’d luvs to be able to save all the kitties who be homeless and scared.  

 

Raena lays atop the cat tree looking over-raspberry

 

 

 

Oh Kittens!!! Ifin mommy had her way Raena, me would have lots of fursibs. But, that takes a lot of time and money which we don’t have. The truth of the matter is that no one purrson can save all the animals in need. But, everypawdy can do somethin’ and make a difference in at least one pet’s life. Adoptin’ is just one of the many ways one can help make that change.   

 

          So true sissy. Peeps who wanna make a change in a pet’s life can volunteer and become fosters, dog walkers, cage cleaners, social media boosters, socialization aides, transport drivers, photographers (you don’t have to be a pro), and so much more.  

 

They can also donate stuffs that shelters and rescues always need like green papers, cleanin’ supplies, food, litter, towels, toys, medical care and tons more. To find out what the shelters and rescues in you area are in need of, just give ‘em a call or check out their website.

          Don’t furget ‘bout the ferals and strays sissy. They need help too. Offen times colonies are looked after by just one purrson tryin’ to purrvide fur them out of their own pawckets.  

 

You’re right Raena. So, while no one purrson can change the lives of every pet on the planet, it only takes one purrson to change the life of one pet. Fur that animal, it might mean the difference t’ween life and death. It did fur me, fur sis Lexi, fur her brofur Lucky, and even fur you RaenaBelle.

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. I’s think I’s wanna go give mommy some extra fanky fank you cuddles. I’s gonna link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday and then give mommy some luvvins.   

 

Dezi sits pretty on the chair arm

 

 

 

You do that Raena. Me’s just gonna finish off me’s brekky furst. Are you gonna finish what’s in your plate?

Chatting Cats: Celebrating Furevers And Leaving The Cage Behind

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. How are ya’ll doin’? It’s furinally here, the day mommy said we could celebrate mine’s Gotcha Day. Mommy came and rescued me from a cage in a smelly house 2 years ago on June 8th. I’s was a scared little kitten, shakin’ all over with lots of gunk in mine’s eyes and nose. Mommy says she could feel the tension in mine’s body when the lady handed me to her. Mommy says contrary to mine’s breed, there wasn’t anythin’ floppy ‘bout me. I’s was shaky and stiff as a board. Mommy says her heart broke fur me and mine’s littermates cuz she couldn’t ‘magine what could make such a young kitty be that scared and I’s wasn’t tellin’.

I’s ‘member the exact minute all that tension left and I’s furinally quit shakin’ and flopped like a purr-opurr Ragdoll. Yep, mommy carried me outside of that place and sat me in her lap. I’s could feel us movin’ but I’s had never been in a car befur, so I’s didn’t unnerstand what was happenin’. And then, mommy picked up mine’s stiff little body, held me close and looked into mine’s gunky blue eyes and said she was gonna luvs me furever and ever and that I’s was gonna live with her. She said I’s would never have to be ‘fraid again and then she kissed me and held me close to her heart. I’s could feel her heart beatin’ and just knew she meant it. That’s the minute mine’s life was furever changed fur the better. And, I’s never looked back.

Oh c’mon now, you’ve been here fur a couple of weeks

now, are you ever gonna stop?

 

 

 

          Me ‘members that day too Raena. Kittens!!! ‘Pawrently, you’d never seen a toy or cat tree or bed or anythin’ else. You were like a tornado runnin’ and jumpin’ all over the house. It’s like you didn’t know what to play with furst. 

 

Raena plays with the flying toy

I’s gonna ketch it this time sissy.

 

 

 

I’s didn’t sissy. I’s couldn’t believe how blest you were. I’s didn’t know a kitty could have so much pawsum stuffs. All I’s had ever known was a cage with a pawtty box in it. And mine’s littermates of course, but they’d never seen any toys either. What a life we have. And then you and mommy told me that I’s had awnties and uncles and lots and lots of furiends who already luvved me. It was almost too good to be true. I’s was ‘fraid to go to sleep that furst night. I’s thought I’s might wake up and find that it had all been a dream.

 

Dezi lays on scratcher yawning

 

 

 

          Nope Raena, it wasn’t no dream, it’s been me’s nightmare. MOL  Me’s just kiddin’. You’re alright fur a bratty li’l sisfur. Me sometimes wonders ifin sis Lexi thought ‘bout me that way. Anyways, me saw our furiend Valentine from Noir Kitty Mews hopped in his stroller and headed to our house to join in the celebration.

Raena's Gotchaday card from Pipo and Dalton

 

 

 

 

Did you see the cutesy smilebox card he made fur me, sissy? Pipo and Dalton made me a card too. I’s so blest to have such amazin’ furiends. Fanky fank you all. Ya’ know, this month is almost over and with it goes Cat Adoption Month. But we think every month is Cat Adoption Month as well as every day. There are so many kitties out there that need savin’. Shelters and Rescues are almost always full to overflowin’ with amazin’ kitties just waitin’ fur their furever to show up and tell them they are luvved and will never have to be ‘fraid again. Maybe you’re not ready to adopt a new kitty, but you can still help. Ya’ know fosterin’ is a great way fur kitties to find their furevers, ‘specially ifin they’re one of the fraidy cats that doesn’t do well in cages.

 

 

Dezi lays stretched out on scratcher

 

 

 

          That’s true Raena. But peeps can also donate their time to volunteer. Ya’ know they could go and play with the kitties and luv on ‘em and help socialize ‘em. And shelters and rescues are always in need of supplies like foods, towels, litter, cleaners and all kinds of things. All one has to do is check with their local shelter or rescue and see what they might need at the moment. Easy peasy, it is. Every so offen mommy sacks up some of our old toys and foods that we get and don’t eat and we donate to those kitties less furtunate. And, mommy sometimes drives ‘round lookin’ fur signs of stray kitties who might be hungry. Ya’ don’t have to be rich to help, everypawdy can help in some way. 

 

Raena lays sleeping on mommy's lap

Mine’s favorite place in the whole wide universe is mommy’s lap.

 

 

 

 

Oh sissy, those are all great ideas. Ya’ know what would make mine’s celebration even more pawsum? Knowin’ that we helped to make some kitty’s dream of a furever come true. Fanky fank you all fur celebratin’ with me. Why don’t you take a minute today to see what it is that you might could do fur the less furtunate kitties in your area. Now, let’s go eat some pizza and play with the nip toys. I’s even told mommy to pull out the silvervine.

   

Till the next time……………………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
