World Cat Day: Adopt Don't Shop and Rescue Don't Breed

As a rescue cat I am lucky to have the best forever home ever. I struck gold when I met my mum. For us it was meant to be. I chose her. And I made sure she was mine!

But some cats are not so lucky. That much is so evident as I watch how my mum spends most of her spare time online helping to spread the word and raise awareness for cats in need of loving homes. She has her Pinterest board - where she pins pictures of desperate cats (and other animals too) that she finds from animal shelters and blogs online and repins from the animal advocates that are sharing and helping too.

She also tweets and retweets from her Twitter and mine.

We want to raise awareness. We want to help those poor kitties stuck in shelters - some of them clearly on Death Row... so heartbreaking.... I am sad for them, but I am glad that my mum, and so many others like her - are doing their best to help. Hopefully one day no kitty will have to suffer.

Poor souls.... they just know their time is up. You can see it in their massive frightened eyes. 

Please STOP breeding and buying.

Please NEUTER your cats 

It's all so SIMPLE really.

A FOREVER HOME FOR ATHENA
I also want to plug my book again because we want to give something back. This is My rescue story. It's a great, moving, emotional story of my young kitty life at the animal shelter. But it is more than that. We are donating some of the royalties to cat shelters. 






WHERE TO BUY THE BOOK

You can purchase A FOREVER HOME FOR ATHENA on Amazon in both eBook and paperback formats. Check out my book page for more info.
