August 8 is World Cat Day.
It was founded in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and other animal rights groups. Cats are more popular than ever with a growing population. There are currently over half a billion cats in the world. Not all have happy pampered lives like most of our cats. How are you celebrating and how can we make cats’ lives better worldwide? Better lives begin by saving lives. Spay/neuter. Adopt/foster. This is an updated graphic for 2017.
Last night I attended a fundraiser in honor of Matilda the resident cat at the Algonguin Hotel to benefit for Bideawee, the oldest no-kill shelter in the U.S.
Bideawee had a mini-mobile adoption van with a half dozen adorable cats. By the time they left one cat was adopted, the cutest kitten I’ve seen in ages. To be honest there were some exceptional looking cats If you don’t believe me, click and see some of others.
Whenever I see pairs of siblings like these tabbies, I always hope someone adopts both.
