Guess what today is….
Oh, you read the headline…? So much for the surprise! Yes, Happy World Cat Day to you and any cats in your life, little or huge, tabby or lion!
Mine are behaving today. Maybe they think World Cat Day means treats or new toys or something. Well, it doesn’t. What it means to me is appreciation for the wonderful creatures cats are, the joy they bring into my life.
Mind you, I love dogs, horses, and just about every animal but apes and monkeys (nasty animals…!), but cats are, well, clawed toothy fun! Mild masochism helps if you have a cat in your home. Or two!
To me, World Cat Day, too, is doing something positive about cats in shelters, a topic I covered some time back in a post last September about Doug and Sharon Brown in Vancouver. They foster whole cat families till they can be placed in permanent homes. They post delightful update videos of the kittens’ progress, and adopted two from one litter to join their cat Panther in their cat-friendly home.
Watch the latest litter Doug and Sharon fostered if you need a pick-me-up moment today! What the heck, here’s a sample video. I highly recommend them all.
