Shout Out to My Shelter of the Month: Chicago Cat Rescue

Hello, Namaste,

Today, I am giving a shout out to the  Chicago Cat Rescue which is located in Chicago, Illinois.

This shelter is committed to helping homeless cats and kittens by recuing them and through finding foster homes (and ultimately forever homes) for the cats and kittens. In addition to saving the cats, the Chicago Cat Rescue provides education for the humans that love the cats. They are doing an amazing job!

I encourage my readers to help this shelter by fostering or adopting a cat.  If you are not in the vicinity of this shelter, please consider helping out by making a donation.

Check out their website through the link below.

This Cat Says: Best Human Game Ever!:

As a very social cat, I love it when my family gets together. It makes it so that I can hang out with all of them at once.

Furthermore, with all that is going on in the world, it is important to stay connected with your family and friends. One activity that you can do with them is to play games.  I think it is also a good mental relaxation activity, also.

Have you played the game Apples to Apples?  It is the best game ever. In this game the fun is in creating hilarious comparisons. My family loves to play it.  It’s so funny and, I love to see my family laughing together.

So, right now, I’m thinking about inviting some feline friends over to play some Apples to Apples.  Have you played this game? What games do you like?

The Cat, Pop Tarts, & Taylor Swift

 

I was home by myself for a few hours recently. As you know, if you’ve read my “About” page, I am quite inquisitive. I am also persistent. My family won’t give me Pop Tarts, no matter hard I beg.   So, when I found this box of Pop Tarts on the counter in the kitchen, I dragged the box onto my climbing tree. I was just about to rip into the box when someone returned home, caught me in the act, and snapped my picture.  (I ripped into the box any way.)

Our grocery delivery man said that Pop Tarts aren’t good. But, then I heard that Taylor Swift likes Pop Tarts. She’s a cat lover. So, I’m more likely to believe her than the grocery delivery man.

What do you think?  Do you like Pop Tarts?

Advice From This Cat: First Love

With today being Valentine’s Day,  it reminds me of a recent conversation that I overheard. I was listening to a young lady who was discussing what she thought her “first love” might be like.  The message I’d like to pass on to her (and others):  “Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first.”

Cat Advice: If You Can’t Sleep at Night

If at night you can’t sleep, and in the morning you can’t get up, maybe you’re a cat…like me.

If you’re a human, maybe I can give you some suggestions to help you sleep better:

  1. Pick a comfortable place to sleep. (This varies from person to person. There are some terrific new mattresses out there. But, one of my favorite places to sleep is with my family’s t-shirts.)
  2. Relax your muscles, starting from your head and working your way down to your toes.
  3. Clear your mind.  Don’t think about anything else.
  4. Breathe deeply.
  5. Let a cat sleep next to you.

 

How To Save A Life

Watching the movie Lion, which is about a human that was adopted, reminded me that there are a lot of my cat brethren out there that need to be adopted, also.

There are many shelters that have cats that are waiting for homes. If you are considering getting a cat, please consider rescuing a cat by adopting from a cat shelter.

The Humane Society of the United States estimates there are between 13 million and 87 million stray cats in the United States. Six to eight million animals are put into shelters each year.  But only 4 to 6 million go to homes.  The remaining cats get euthanized, which breaks my deep cat heart.

By adopting a rescue cat:

  1. You are saving the life of the cat that you adopt.
  2. You are making room for more cats to get into the shelters.
  3. You are improving the lives of people who have fewer stray cats in their areas.
  4. You are saving small animals who would be prey of the stray cats.

So, please consider adopting a cat.  You’ll feel great about yourself for doing so, and I’ll be proud of you.
