DDFL’s CatFest Follow-up

Pals, I just got the following press release from the Denver Dumb Friends League. It’s pawsome news!

Dumb Friends League CatFest results in nearly 100 cat adoptions

 DENVER (July 16, 2012) We may be in the dog days of summer, but cats ruled this past Saturday, July 14, at the fourth annual CatFest. The Dumb Friends League placed 124 pets—98 of those being cats and kittens—on that single day.

 In addition to all those animals finding new homes, Animal Planet’s celebrity cat behaviorist, Jackson Galaxy, spent the afternoon answering cat-related questions, signing autographs and taking pictures with cat enthusiasts. More than 2,000 people experienced a purebred cat exhibition, a Meow Market with vendors selling cat-related merchandise, clicker-training demonstrations and numerous free activities for children.

“We’re thrilled that thousands of cat lovers joined us for CatFest and that so many took advantage of our heavily reduced adoption fees for cats and kittens,” said Bob Rohde, Dumb Friends League president and CEO. “Cats make wonderful pets—they not only bring joy and companionship to your life; but they are affectionate, intelligent and very receptive to training.”

To help even more felines find homes, the Dumb Friends League will continue to offer $10 adoption fees for all cats over 7 months old through July 31. The special takes place at all Dumb Friends League adoption locations. Every cat adoption fee includes a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip ID implant and a free office visit with a participating veterinarian.

CatFest was sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet®. For more information on the Dumb Friends League and its $10 cat adoption special, visit ddfl.org or call (303) 751-5772.

98 cats and kittens getting new furever homes in just one day! That’s what I call a successful CatFest. I can’t wait for next year’s. Maybe the weather will be cooler and I’ll get to go in the fur! Concatulations to the Denver Dumb Friends League for a pawsome job.

Meezer Colors Day

EK here. I’m borrowing the blog for today to show you my meezer colors.

I know I look more like a tabby than a meezer with my beautiful cream and orange markings, but just look at me! I have blue eyes, I’m built like a meezer (I’m little for a boy cat) and I have a meezer meow. And Cathy at Duncan’s Place told Mom that I’m part meezer when Mom picked me out. So I think I get to show off my beautiful colors for Meezer Colors Day. You may admire me now.

*gets poked by Pumpkin. ‘Don’t forget to…’* Sheese. I didn’t forget. Go away, Pumpkin. Sisfurs! What are you gonna do? Anyway, I’m supposed to remind efurrybody that if you entered the Hill’s Giveaway, to go here to see if you won and how to claim your prize.

Happy Meezer Colors Day! *preens*

Hill’s Science Diet Giveaway Results

It’s time to announce the winners of the 15 bags of Hill’s® Science Diet® Hairball Control cat food. There were only 16 entries, so everybody wins! Concatulations everyone! 15 of you will get your bags direct from Hill’s and someone local to me will get their food from me because I have some extra here at the house. Unfortunately, as wonderful as this food is, one of us in the household has an extremely sensitive tummy and didn’t react well to it (glares at offending sisfur). EK and I think this is wonderful food. If it were up to us, Mom would switch us to this. Unfortunately, the kitty with the sensitive tummy outvotes the rest of us. 🙁

Please email where you want your food shipped to pumpkinpuddy@gmail.com. I’ll forward all the addresses on to the wonderful people at Hill’s. Thanks everyone for participating in my giveaway. I know you’re gonna like this food. I sure did.

That’s it for this Sunday. Lippe had a big weekend and we gotta get all the pictures on the computer and get them labeled so we can post them, so I gotta say bye for now.  *runs off to get camera*
