Be the Change — My Blog the Change Roundup

Once a quarter, animal lovers everywhere come together to support Blog the Change for Animals. Bloggers write about their favorite animal-related cause and share them on social media where everyone can read, comment and share them more. We want to be the change for animals!

Not just for bloggers… Be, Blog and Read the Change for Animals!

I have three main things that I am passionate about when it comes to animal welfare: Spay/Neuter; Feral Cats; and Adopt, Don’t Shop. I have Blogged for the Change twice since I started blogging a little over a year ago. In October 2015, I blogged about Spay/Neuter. In July 2015, I was excited to announce my new relationship with A-Pal Humane Society when I became a Cat with a Cause. I didn’t write a specific post this quarter so I thought I would share some … Continue reading

Adopt Mr. White (and Hannah) and have a White Christmas!

$25 specialMom went to the Feed Barn yesterday to photograph our featured kitty for today and found two that I want to tell you about. Before I do though, I want to say that mom was pretty happy that there weren’t many kitties there!

Mom was so sad when she went to The Feed Barn this week to take photos of the available kitties from A-Pal Humane Society. There was a gorgeous orange and white girl who was found wandering the streets in Jackson. She was starving but otherwise in good condition when she was picked up. Mom was sad because she was so friendly yet no one was looking for her. We can only wonder how she became homeless.

14 Ways to Help Your Local Shelter or Rescue Group

Learn how to support your local animal shelter or rescue group

Because I was rescued from a high-kill shelter, it is really important to me to paw it forward to help other homeless kitties. I am one grateful girl to have been rescued and I love to tell the humans who work tirelessly to save animals how much I appreciate them. National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week is the purrfect time to do just that. Although I do not support the organization that started it, and I don’t understand how people still can, I wanted to take the time to share with you a few ways you can help your local animal shelter or rescue group. They still deserve your support even if the national organization that started the event does not. When you donate locally, you can be more certain that your donation will actually go to the animals in need.
