Paddy, Keano and Ozzy: Adopt a Cat #charitytuesday

Poor Paddy looks a bit frightened. In fact, he is quite a shy boy but, as you can see from his photo, he is gorgeous! Sweet Paddy would really benefit from a home where he can be given time to flourish, with understanding owners who will be willing to offer him plenty of TLC. 

If you think you can offer Paddy the home he needs, please visit his profile for more information.  He is at the Heydon centre.

Keano, who we featured a few weeks back, is still waiting for a forever home at Wood Green The Animal Charity. It's such a bad shame he is taking longer to rehome than others. We're sure he is being well looked after by the team at Wood Green but it can't be much fun seeing other kitties come and go and wondering when it'll be your turn to find a forever family to love you and take care of you.

"Keano is such a people cat and all he really wants in life is a home of his own. Keano is FIV+ which means he cannot live with other cats and really needs to be in a home where there are no visiting cats in his garden. Perhaps you are lucky enough to live in a home like this? He just needs a nice, safe garden and all the love and attention you can give him. Keano cuddles really are the best. He is a playful boy so will provide hours of entertainment with his antics."

Keano is currently in a foster home. To find out more about him you can contact the Godmanchester here.

Watch him in action on youtube here. 

Ozzy is another kitty still awaiting his forever home. We featured him a few weeks ago. Here he is again.

"Ozzy is a very sensitive little soul who is looking for a special home with adults only. Ozzy can be quite scared of the outside world, he doesn’t like loud noises and fast movements so will need very understanding owners that can give him the time and patience that he needs to feel safe. Once Ozzy has built a bond with you he is a very affectionate boy who loves to follow you around like a little shadow. He likes to be fussed and sit on your lap but also enjoys his own company and will happily take himself off for a nap. Ozzy would love a home where he can gradually begin exploring outside in the garden and burn off some of his energy whilst working on his confidence! He would also prefer to be the only animal in the home." 

Ozzy is at the Heydon centre. Find out more about him here. 


All proceeds from A Forever Home For Athena will be donated to the following charities:

Wood Green The Animals Charity
Greek Cat Welfare Society
Cats Protection



More homeless pets looking for forever homes can be found on my Mum's Pinterest Pet Rescue board.
Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. As a rescue kitty myself I want to help other rescues find their forever home, so each week on Charity Tuesday I share adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animals Charity (which is where I was rescued) and some other charities dear to our hearts. Mum and I are so grateful to Wood Green because without them we would never have found each other!

Wear Orange for Crockett

We were going to post this with our Caturday Art yesterday but we thought Crockett deserved a blog post of his own so we added this for our Sunday Selfie instead.

It's one of the artworks Mum created with the PicsArt app and she was going to use it for a future Caturday Art but she thought as it's all fiery it would be purrfect for Wear Orange for Crockett Day.

Yesterday, May 18, would have been Crockett's fifth Gotcha Day. Sadly, he has crossed the Rainbow Bridge far too young after a tragic accident and so we are honouring him by wearing orange as all of our friends and blogger pals are also doing.

The blog hop will be open for 2 weeks, so you too can honour this beautiful little soul who we are all missing so much :( πŸ’šπŸ’œ

3. I could set a world record for being the biggest worrier there is and ever was!

I wasn't hurt but you can imagine Mum's panic when she heard me meowing and scratching. I got in around the back somehow and into the drawer. In fact, I don't remember but I was a kitten and that's what kittens do!

New Artwork on Redbubble #caturdayart

This post contains affiliate links. Full disclosure here.

We've been on Redbubble for a while now but Mum hasn't had much time to add more artwork to my store, Wise Kitty.

But I pushed her to add some this week and to my great amazement, she did! Check out our new uploaded art here!  Hopefully, more will come in the next few days. 

Though I love her taking long naps with me (her depression makes her want to sleep a lot, plus she needs to be more cat as being human isn't making her happy), I need her to keep this blog running and also to run my social media accounts. I can't do it myself, after all.

Here's one of our new uploads. Mum used the Palette Knife art filter in Photoshop Elements to create this effect.

Friday Reads: I'm Not a Skunk #bookreview

cat with books graphic

We love cat books (well, we love everything cats), and we love our blogging pals so it was a pleasure to review this wonderful book by Ellen J Pilch of the 15andmeowing cat blog.

We already read and reviewed Ellen's first book Prancie's Prayer which was just as delightful so we were looking forward to reading this one and we weren't disappointed! 

I Am Not a Skunk is about a cat who gets mistaken for a skunk and is Ellen's second picture book. Loosely based on how her beautiful black and white cat Emmy came to live with her, this is a sweet and short tale - purrfect for children but adults will enjoy it too and will love reading it to their kids. 

The gorgeous illustrations by Nicolas Peruzzo 
also bring the story to life and younger children will delight in returning to flick through the book time and time again.

The illustrations work well on the Kindle version but maybe children would prefer the paperback edition to turn the pages and enjoy gazing at the pictures on their own. It's definitely a storybook to treasure. 

And adults too - this little book will surely cheer you up for the day.

We read the Kindle version via KindleUnlimited in the UK.

The paperback edition is also available on Amazon.
