Can You Believe It’s My 2nd Blogoversary?

It's my 2nd blogoversary! Can you believe I've been a blogging kitty for two whole years? Come join me on a little walk down memory lane.

Today marks two years that I have been a blogging kitty. That’s about 1/8 of an average kitty’s lifespan! Seems pretty hard to believe and time has just flown by. Mom and I talked about making a big deal and having a big party but we decided instead to just thank you all for being here and being our friends.

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

Looking Back at 2015 – My Tops and Favorites

ChristyHappy New Years Eve! Today, we say goodbye to 2015 as 2016 peeks around the corner. Mom says time is just flying by. I don’t really get that, but I know it means something to the humans.

It’s hard to believe I am already a third of the way into my second year of blogging. For my blogoversary in August, I wrote a review of my first year, highlighting some of my accomplishments. It was my third most popular post of the year. With 2015 coming to an end, since my blogoversary post looked at accomplishments, I thought I would look at some statistics for the year.

It came as no surprise that my top post for the year was for the Continue reading

Are You Feeling Lucky? — National Black Cat Day

Are you feeling lucky? - #NationalBlackCatDayMom is not a superstitious person but Friday the 13th was not a good day for her. When she tried to leave a pet sitting client’s house early in the afternoon, her car would not start. She tried to start it several times then got out. When she did, she heard a dripping sound and the smell of gasoline was almost overpowering. She looked down to see a large puddle under her car. She called AAA and they told her the fire department would have to clear the car before it could be towed.

The fire truck arrived and the two firemen checked out the car. It only leaked when it was under pressure so it was good to be towed. The young lady at AAA, although very sweet, was new and didn’t know how to handle … Continue reading

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.
