Tortie Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Congratulations to Lone Star Cats for correctly identifying the costume yesterday as an OREO. Good job! A lot of you have good guesses too. Today is Tortie Tuesday and Medical Day ,I want to discuss mammary tumors being that it is breast cancer awareness month.

I know other bloggers have been doing this as well. Fur Everywhere did a fantastic, thorough post: http://fureverywhere.blogspot.com/2014/10/feline-mammary-cancer.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FurEverywhere+%28Fur+Everywhere%29 .

I am a big fan of spay/neuter for many reasons. One of the biggest reasons I feel all females should be spayed is to reduce the chances of mammary cancer. It is such a simple thing to do for our cats and there are so many reduced cost clinics , some are even free. I always post on my personal Facebook to spread the word for local clinics. I even volunteer to deliver and pick up the cats for people.

For Tortie Tuesday, here is Penny is her costume last year: blog4She was a Hershey’s Kiss- I wrapped her in aluminum foil and made a Hershey’s kiss label with white ribbon.

    1. Thank you, I can’t foster because I would never want to give up any kitties I take in so I do this instead. Penny says thank you.

  2. That is so fantastic of you to help transport kitties for spay/neuter, we are such a proponent of it too for so many reasons, cancer being a big one! Love the costume!!!!

  3. MOL, Penny looks about as happy to be wrapped in tinfoil as Binga would be! You are so right about spaying us girl kitties – I wear my spay surgery scar (now mostly hidden by fur) proudly.

    1. Penny was not thrilled, I was lucky to get the photo before she bolted. Spay/neuter should be a law unless you are a registered breeder. I am happy you are setting such a good example Summer.
