Pardon the total departure from my normal material, but I have an opportunity to win $10,000 for the cat shelter that I volunteer at, the same shelter I’ve adopted both my cats from. I entered my cat P. Kiddy into a contest being put on by Fuzzy Nation and he was chosen as one of 100 finalists! The winners will be determined by popular vote, and everyone with a Facebook account can vote once a day through November 4th. This is the photo I entered into the contest.
Crash’s Landing and Big Sid’s Sanctuary is the name of the shelter that would benefit. These shelters are amazing, you guys. Their mission is to rescue strays from the streets, especially those that are ill or injured and in danger. They spare no expense in getting each cat up to full health. And these cats don’t have to live in cages! The shelters are cage-free and absolutely no-kill. And entirely volunteer run. The kitties can stay as long as necessary, though we hope they will all be adopted!
Big Sid’s is one of the largest shelters in the nation which caters exclusively to cats who test positive for FIV or FeLV. FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) are viruses that can, if they flare up, suppress a cat’s immune system. But with proper care they can live long, happy lives and are just as adoptable as virus-free cats.
My P. Kiddy is positive for FeLV, but you’d never know it to look at him. He also had a run in with diabetes a few months ago but he is so strong, he beat it and is in remission now! PK and I have been through so much together, it truly is an epic story and it just keeps getting more interesting and more wonderful. I’m so happy he’s in my life. I think his kitty brother Milo likes him too.
I would be forever grateful if you took a moment and voted for P. Kiddy in this contest. You can vote once a day through November 4th, so if you would like to be reminded to vote you can “Like” the page I’ve created for P. Kiddy on Facebook. 🙂
