National Pet Day on Mancat Monday

Hello Evfurryone,

Just wanted to drop in an post a little on a subject rather dear to my heart.
Today, April 11th is National Pet Day.

'National Pet Day was created by Celebrity Pet Lifestyle Expert & Animal AdvocateColleen Paige, who also founded National Dog Day and National Cat Day {among others} to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and to create public awareness about the plight of many different kinds of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters all across the nation."

"It's estimated that approximately 16,000 pets die in U.S. shelters every single day. This means that roughly every single hour of the day, 667 sweet furry babies are taking their last breath. This is just cats and dogs and does not include the thousands of other unwanted animals that people consider pets. Right now, while you're reading this, hundreds of animals are dying. It's a painful reality but we must not give up hope to change it. "

The above quotes are taken from the National Pet Day Website. Please go visit them if you have a few minutes.

I am a rescue Kitty and was so happy when Pellie & Sir Knight adopted me a little over two years ago. So today I'm purring extra hard for all the others who need furever home.

In case you wondering - YES I do snuggle down with Bugs Bunny when the need arises; and the need arose on Sunday with all the nasty weather we were having and the sirens going off announcing Tornado warnings. (So you want to make something of it????
No I didn't think so)
