June is Adopt-A-Cat Month!

This is our month, Cats! This is the month when the humans are supposed to adopt bunches of us and give us Forever Homes! (AAB Christine says that I am "preaching to the choir" on this blog. . . whatever that means.)

My county has a Humane Society for Boone County, and they are trying to save the homeless animals in the county. It is a fairly new organization; it was established in September 2007 by citizens of Boone County, and they are currently operating by taking homeless animals into foster homes. Some day they want to have enough dollars to build a shelter building, but for now they have generous volunteers who help out.

If you live in or near Boone County and you want to help, you can visit their web site for more information.

I am very lucky that I did not go to a shelter, because then Karen might not have discovered me and found out what a wonderful Library Cat I would make! Still, it gives me warm fuzzies to know that there are humans out there who work to make the lives of homeless cats (and dogs) homeFULL!

I think June should also be Animal Shelter Worker Appreciation Month, to thank all of the people who give their time and moneys and homes to take care of cats and other animals who have nowhere else to go. Thank you, Animal Helpers! We love you!

For your viewing pleasure:

I am Bossing from my Thorntown Public Library Command Center. I am standing by the phone, ready to answer any questions on library policy and procedure that may arise.

Proud to be adopted,

I'm sorry. I know you're being very serious but you are so darn cute. I just want to pick you up and give you kisses on your orange head.

Remember, I'm an orange kitty Mom.

On that serious note, I hope you can get some of those humans to donate. Maybe your Library Mom's can do a poster or something like that and you can advertise.

~~~ on my blog, I'm having a Pay It Forward, if you're interested take a look ~~~

What a great idea! Adopt a cat and appreciate those who help get them adopted.

Thank you for letting me know about this Tober! I had no idea! I agree with you that there should be a month to celebrate those that fight for kitties and woofies who need furever homes. This is a great time for all of us kitties to say a big thank you!!

I was a shelter cat...and I am so happy my mom found me and gave me a furever home! And we think shelter workers, 'specially the ones that volunteer, deserve some appreciation!

The library is in good paws with you in charge.
