Celebrating Everything Kitten On National Kitten Day: July 10

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

NATIONAL KITTEN DAY IS THE PERFECT DAY TO CELEBRATE EVERYTHING KITTEN!

 

“Kittens are angels with whiskers.”

Alexis Flora Hope

 

National Kitten Day was founded in 2012 by pet and family lifestyle expert and animal advocate, Colleen Paige.  National Kitten Daylooks to celebrate the magic of kittens and to show how much joy they bring to people's lives. National Kitten Day was also created to highlight the plight of homeless kittens in search of their fur-ever home. 

 

“A kitten is in the animal world what a rosebud is in the garden.” 

Robert Southey

 

National Kitten Day's purpose is to encourage kitten adoption and to focus on spaying and neutering as a way to keep the feline population under control. 

 

5 Ways You Can Celebrate National Kitten Day

  1. Donate money to a local animal shelter or to an animal welfare organization.
  2. Donate items such as food, toys, and blankets to your local shelter.
  3. Volunteer at your local shelter.
  4. Foster a kitten from your local animal shelter.
  5. Adopt a kitten from your local shelter. Don't forget it's Empty The Shelters weekend in Charlotte... you can adopt a kitten for a low fee at Charlotte's Humane Society and at  CMPD's Animal Control Shelter. Right now the Humane Society of Charlotte has tons of kittens hoping for a fur-ever home that you can adopt. 

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.”

Leonardo da Vinci

Here kitty, kitty. :) I sure hope many of these wonderful creatures will find loving homes. In the meantime, what's up with irresponsible pet owners? I honestly don't get it. Spay and neuter!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Hi Debb... I don't get this whole thing about not neutering and spaying one's cats and dogs either... especially as in many areas now even if you can't afford a private vet there are all sorts of organizations that will pay most of the fee for you.

Hi Nina-= I knew that your post would be about this day!!!  And you did not disappoint. Years ago when Larry was a builder, he came home one night and told me that there was a kitten that may have been abandoned by his mom at one of his spec homes. I made him get back in the car and we drove to the home. There was the kitten who later became our Baby Gray.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - Over the years my household has seen at least 2 litters born, and many, many kittens.  My whole family loves cats but right now my household is kitten-free.

Monica Brisson hi Monica... I love kitties of any breed! I'm convinced that if I had a prior life it was as a cat. Thanks for your nice email earlier today!

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... I must be getting predictable! 😉 Even as a toddler, if I saw a kittie on the road anywhere, I'd pick it up and bring it home. That's why my mother finally let me have a cat... to stop me from bringing home all the strays.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... my house has also been kitten free since 1990 when I acquired Tutti & Frutti, my two French Chartreaux. They both lived long lives.  Since then, I've always adopted young adult cats... while kittens are adorable and entertaining, adult cats find it hard to be adopted.

I'm going to pass on this "national" day Nina Hollander, Broker as due to my attitude cats are known as "Targets" in my household. In the interest of full disclosure I will say I've never shot, run over, or mistreated one.
