It’s official, I am in a calendar photo contest. While checking out some of my Facebook furiends, I found that one of my furiends had entered a photo contest, and snap, it hit me, I could do the same! And you probably thought it was my human’s idea….meow meow.
It’s not your typical photo contest. It’s put on by the BCSPCA (The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals). We’ve been seeing a disturbing increase in the number of puppy mill seizures in the news lately and it’s just heartbreaking. It’s happening world wide too I’m afraid. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful home with caring humans, and I shudder at the thought of how close my life came to turning out very differently.
This is finally a way I can help the less fortunate: by helping the society that takes in the many sick and injured animals, straining their finances to care for the rescues in getting them ready for adoption and a new lease on life. My humans agreed it would be a wonderful thing to do and commended me on my selflessness.
Thirteen entries with the most votes win. I hope you too will join me in this pawsome cause by voting for my contest entry with a small donation of your own to the society. I thank you in advance for your selflessness and generosity.
Meowee furiends, it’s been a few months since my last post. I had my 3rd birthday a couple of months ago in February and my humans forgot. To those who left a few good suggestions on my Facebook page about what I should do (to my humans) about that, I thank you, they helped me feel better.
Just before I show you a video of my new furiend Nacho, let me first say that he is one lucky little kitty. Not only was he rescued from under a truck in Mexico half dead, but his humans, who happen to be friends with my humans, will be bringing him back to their home here on the BC west coast where he will become a boat cat like me. And I just found out he’ll be flying in next week! I can hardly wait to show him the ropes…wait, I mean lines.
It’s not easy for street cats to survive, anywhere, even harder for kittens, and by the sounds of it, Nacho probably wouldn’t have survived if not for the quick action and kind heart of a compassionate human who made the effort to prevent that from happening. Apparently it was touch and go. But as you will see, look just how well Nacho recovered. He’s a fighter.
Bringing pets from one country to another is not simple either. Once I find out the story of Nacho’s journey from Mexico to Canada, including vet certificates, airline requirements and other paperwork, I will report back.
I really hope we’ll get along when we finally get to meet. He’s already good buds with his furiend Toby the Chihuahua as you will see in this video. I’m sure they will miss each other but don’t be sad because Nacho will be going back to Mexico for the winter and they will be together again. So without further ado, I present Nacho…
