How I Mended My Dad’s Broken Heart

Gracey putting a couple of cat hairs in Dad's teaYou might remember that my dad and I have a morning ritual that involves getting up super early, chomping chow and drinking hot tea.  My dad drinks the tea in case you are wondering.

Even when I get too excited to wait for the alarm to go off and get my dad up out of bed, he just picks me up and tells me  he loves me, and we enjoy  the early morning together.

He always drinks his morning  tea from the Meow Chow mug that I gave him as a present on the first Father’s Day after I was adopted by  my parents. That is the Meow Chow mug in the photo above.

Two weeks ago, something unexpected happened.  In the big picture of life, you wouldn’t  say that it was something terribly awful or tragic , but to my dad, it was a little bit heartbreaking.  Here is what happened.

10 Timeline Tips from The Tiniest Tiger

Ready or not here comes Facebook’s Timeline !

Timeline is coming to our The Tiniest Tiger Facebook page! According to Facebook, on March 30, 2012 all Pages on Facebook will be converted to the new Timeline design.  Many of you have expressed concerns and even frustration over  the new Timeline.  I know we Cats are creatures of habit,  but I thought if we were prepared for Timeline we might even embrace the changes. I put together a list of some of the changes with screen shots so that we can get ready. No fat tails and hissing please.  We are in this together.

Last month Secret Room Event’s Luxury Lounge honoring the Academy Awards at the L’Ermitage Beverly Hills helped to raise money and awareness for The Humane Society of the United States. The Tiniest Tiger Hipster was part of the Secret Room Event and celebrities attending and  The Humane Society liked the bag so much it was chosen to be part of the gift for the 26th Genesis Award Celebrity Presenters.

We are honored that The Tiniest Tiger Hipster was chosen to be part of the Genesis Award Celebrity Presenters Gift because The Tiniest Tiger’s Conservation Cub Club’s mission is to spread the  message that small paws united can make a big difference.

The Humane Society of the United States pays tribute every year to news and entertainment media for producing outstanding works that raise public awareness about animal issues. The 26th Genesis Awards will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

Many Hollywood celebrities are compassionate and love getting

together to celebrate the media’s effort to raise awareness about animal issues. Many celebrities that are asked to present  feel that this is the award show where it truly is as much of an honor to present as it is to receive.

Throughout the day, many celebrities stopped by to chat about The Tiniest Tiger and our mission to care for all animals big and small. Everyone was super interested in learning more about how to save our big cat cousins. We had a great time meeting so many nice people too.

Christa Campbell stopped by and she liked The Tiniest Tiger Hipster bag so much she posed for a photo wearing the bag.

Friends, our big cat cousins as well as bears, elephants and other animals need us to speak out for them. Right now in the United States House of Representatives there is a bill H.R. 3359, the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act.  H.R. 3359 is focused and a great step in the right direction to protect animals used for amusement.  We need to speak up and be heard to stop the abuse of our fellow living beings.

Contact your Member of Congress to Support the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act

This is the type of wagon that is used to confine our big cat cousins for days on end while traveling with the circus.  In addition to the extreme confinement, the animals are subjected to brutality as well as food and water deprivation.  There is documented evidence to support that the training methods used for the performance tricks involves pain and punishment.

Now is the time for us to be the voice for these animals!
