Rescue Stories: Popoki - From Shelter Cat to Queen of her Catio

Hello and Happy Friday! I'm back with another great tail tale in our Rescue Stories series. Today's story is about one of our blogging friends, Popoki, from Welcome To The Menagerie.  Popoki's mom, Jean, took Popoki home to foster her, and the rest is history. Read on to see how Jean fell in love with Popoki and how she became a member of the family. 

I'll never forget the first time I clapped eyes on Popoki. I was volunteering in my local animal shelter, as I had done every week, and I peered into a kennel to find this absolutely gorgeous cat trying desperately to hide behind her litter box. She was overwhelmed by the sights, smells and sounds of the shelter, and the staffers told me she had been too worried to eat very much. In addition, she'd picked up a bit of a cold in the shelter, so she was sneezing and her eyes looked just terrible.

To Catch A Cat - Book Review and Giveaway

I love books about cat rescue.  The story becomes more alluring to me when the act of rescuing and the cats themselves makes a life turning impact on a person.  Add in the fact that the author is a former New York City girl who viewed the trek into New Jersey to visit her boyfriend less than pleasurable (I have said on more than one occasion “Oh geez, I have to go to Jersey?”) and the book is a must read for me. (Disclaimer: It has nothing to do with New Jersey… it’s the traffic on the way!) So I was delighted when I was offered the opportunity to review To Catch A Cat – How Three Stray Kittens Rescued Me by Heather Green.

Forgotten Felines at Tabby's Place - Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week

Hello and happy Friday! I’m here to bring you our third post in our “Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet” week series.  Today I’m presenting some of the “Forgotten Felines” at Tabby’s Place.  If you’ve seen our other post on the sancuary here you already know that Tabby’s is one of Mommy’s favorite places on earth and she’s met many of these cats.  Now, to be considered a “forgotten feline” means that the cat has been there 5+ years. That right… I said 5+ years! *shakes head* That’s way too long to be looking for your forever home if you ask me. 

First up is Mango.

Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week

Hello everyone.  This is Lexy checking in and today to tell you that this is a very important week.  It’s Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week. Petfinder started the Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week campaign to raise awareness about the fact that special-needs pets are just as wonderful and loving as "normal" pets, and that they’re just as deserving of forever homes. And we here at the White House couldn't agree more.
