Blog the Change for Animals (#BtC4A) is a chance for bloggers to write about an animal related cause. I want to write about adopting more than one cat from the shelter.
It breaks my heart when families get torn apart ( people and animal). When I went to adopt Sammy, I did not know he had a sister. As soon as I saw he had a sibling, there was no way I was leaving her behind. I had only brought $70 for his adoption fee and I was already tempting fate adopting him without asking my husband’s input on the matter.
I didn’t ask because I knew he would say no, we already had 13 cats at the time. In matters concerning cats, I find it easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. I ended up paying Sammy’s fee, but leaving him there for the weekend because I did not want Joanie (Meghan, at the time) to be without him. I was also told they had another sibling that had already been adopted which haunts me still. I can’t believe shelters will separate families of cats and that people are willing to adopt just one. They were already 4 years old at the time and were obviously bonded.
These two have given me so much happiness. And my hubby is very close to both of them too.
If you are thinking of adopting a cat, how about adopting a bonded pair? I am sure you will not regret it.
We are also joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.
I thought there was a hop for Blog the Change, but I can’t find the information right now so I will add it as soon as I find it.
Happy Thursday everyone!! Mom said I can have a giveaway and it is a good one, but first we are participating in Blog the Change for animals. This is the time to make a fresh commitment to act on behalf of animals in need. We have chosen to send some money to our friend, Joni Nelson in Boston, MA who feeds hundreds of ferals every morning before going to her job as a bus driver. She depends on donations to feed all these poor kitties and her poor heart gets broken often when they mysteriously disappear. Here is her Facebook page where she tells their story: https://www.facebook.com/joni.nelson.5?fref=ts She also does TNR as soon as she finds new cats and tries to place the ones that are not feral.
Now, the giveaway-Mom bought a Grumpy Cat yesterday at Michael’s Craft Store with her half price coupon and said I can give it away ( she already had one like this and some others 🙂 ). She did say I have to make the giveaway a little longer so I can’t announce the winner ’til next Thursday-Phooey! Comment every day for more chances to win. And if you tell me how pretty I am you get an extra entry 🙂 See you Sunday!
PS: I forgot to tell you my Grammie came and kitty sat us Tuesday and gave me lots of treats and pets- I love my Grammie very much. Can you believe Mom makes her stay with us if her and Dad are going to be gone for more than half an hour? Does she think we would get into trouble?
