Just a few short months ago, I was waiting for my forever home in a cage with Eddie at the Grayson County Humane Society. Donna and her team took really great care of us. They made sure we were loved, received snuggles and attention so we would be socialized and ready for adoption. The Grayson team makes sure they capture the best photo of all cats and dogs at the shelter so that when the photos are shared, people from all over will see their faces with the hope that someone will fall in love and adopt them.

Happiness for a Blind Kitten
Cats! The Good, The Sad and the Changeable.
It is no secret that there is an overpopulation problem for cats and dogs. In fact, the numbers are staggering when you stop and analyze them. Found Animals Foundation recently developed The Pet Overpopulation Challenge infographic that you see above.
It probably comes as no surprise to you, my fellow feline friends, that cats are #1! There are 93 million cat owners and 77 million dog owners. So that means that 55% of all pet owners are living with cats! And, 56% of those cat owners are sharing their habitats with more than one cat! It is super terrific that so many cats are enjoying the good life in forever homes. Our prestige is being noticed by marketers too as there are many new feline fabulous products becoming available on the market. The pet parent’s love for their pets helped The Pet Industry remain strong over the last few years even when other parts of the economy were taking a bit of a nap. This is good for those cats in loving homes but what about our homeless cousins? We cats rule but we must take this responsibility serious. We can’t just play fetch and chomp bones all day. No offense to my dog friends.
We fastidious felines must do our part to help others in need.
