#RememberMeThursday with the Tomcat Family

Angel Timmy here to say how important this day is as we are all shelter, foster or rescue kitties. I was fostered by Spay and Save when Dad adopted me and starting this blog ball rolling

I was at Kitty Cottage which is a nice rescue where the cats roam their assigned floor. Dad was "just visiting" and I tapped his shoulder. His friend was looking at cats and they came back the next week. Guess who tapped Dad's shoulder a second time.  This Cat! Thank You Dad for my wonderful home.

I love this day as it encourages people to remember those who are in shelters. I was saved by a group that Dad did fostering for but, sadly, I am a failed foster. Without groups that support shelters a kitty like me would be in trouble in the "pound". Today I am happy and have a home.

Because Dad had posters of rescues in his work cubicle a lady who had walked by a few times knew he was the person to call when she found me on her doorstep at deaths door. Of course he adopted his little bottle baby. Love that guy
Da same ting happen wit me'z. Da lectritian saw Dads poster when hiz son needa new home fur Buddy Budd. Ah waz 8 an Dad lookee but no findee so he say ah cain live wit him. Lovin ya Dad!
I was a failed foster along with Miss Fitz due to my FIV. If Dad did not know the truth about FIV from his work in rescue I may have never had a chance.
Shelters, rescue groups and fostering gave us all a shot. We thank them all. Please support your local shelter!

We are Joining Lola the Rescued Cat to raise awareness of those waiting for you to adopt and not shop!

Rescue shelters and the Humane Societies are real mainstay for cats and dogs. Precious is living with us because she was in a shelter and too shy to even eat or drink. She's been here nearly nine years and she has her issues but overall I think she's a happy cat. I know she makes me happy everyday that I can be with her.

Much good work has been done because of you.

These are so many cats there that need our help. Over here in Scotland, due to lockdowns ending, there are so many dogs in shelters now. People got a dog then gave it up after lockdown and furlough. It is heartbreaking so many animals, not just cats, need our help :-(

Your Dad is a Superhero for sure! And so are all those who work in shelters helping wonderful kitties and pups.

Your dad is pawsomely pawsome! And you kitties are so lucky to have a good home. We love the story about tapping his shoulder! You really let him know you were adopting him. Thank you so much for joining our blog hop.

Great post… I’ve long thought about volunteering at a local shelter but I’m not sure I could handle seeing great cats who aren’t adopted…

Shelters and rescues are essential to save thousands - millions - of animals' lives. God bless 'em.
