These Cats Can Sing

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Destiny Real Estate Cambridge, MA

This is a super example of using creativity and humor to get your message across.

Sometimes I think animal shelters are a bit heavy handed with the spay / neuter message. Especially since it's often really difficult to find a kitten around here. 

But this video does a great job of making the point - and it's adorable and catchy at the same time. 

Singing cats - what could be better.

With a nod to the Beatles...

Hi Irene ~ I have to stay away from pet stores and shelters - the cats are irresistible and Champ likes being an only.

Hi Claudette ~ Terrible to think about. Every cat and dog (and rabbits too!) needs a home.

Hi Toni ~ That's good to hear - every shelter should put it on their website - gotta love youtube -being able to share videos is just fabulous.

Hi Rebecca ~ It's like the vinegar vs. honey - say it with humor and music and it's very powerful.

Hi Karen ~ You know they did a good job when the message comes through loud and clear *and* you end up with a smile on your face.

Hi Liz - I missed this one and found in on the weekly wrap-up. It's very clever and just so sad. I hope everyone sees this. Thanks for the post.

Hi Liz -- did you just happen to stumble upon that video? It's great, with an important message. A plane load of chihuahuas left San Francisco for Boston (I believe) a couple of days ago, homes needed for all the doggies. Too sad.

Hi Peggy ~ Glad you found it - it's an appealing video so helps to spread the message for sure.

Hi Paul ~ Let me know how that goes! Wish mine would get the acting bug.

Hi Susan ~ Aren't they clever?! I do love kittens (and even puppies!) but I guess some people don't take responsibility.

Hi Lottie ~ I found it on a website. And chihuahuas! They're sort of the "It dog" right now so I bet they'll be snapped up.

HA. The song is catchy. Not sure if its because Its 'catchy' or because I know the original. either way, Im sure I'll be singing "Spay Me" for a few more minutes.

Liz ~ What an amazing video about why cat owners should spay and neuter their pets! I wish everyone who owns a cat, is thinking about getting a cat or knows someone who owners a cat could see this video. The people who created the video is very, very clever.

Liz, that cat with the pink collar is just like my cat that disappeared! My cat also had on a pink collar when last seen. She must have left to become a music star. That's a cute, cute video.
