The day to shine a light on shelter and rescue pets, known as Remember Me Thursday, is taking place this week on – you guessed it – Thursday! So, let’s come together and light up social media on September 24th in honor of homeless pets everywhere.
In honor of Remember Me Thursday, which takes place this year on September 27, 2018, I’m turning the blog over to Woodrow, who will be sharing his Pro Tips for Adopting a Shelter Cat.
Remember Me Thursday is the fourth Thursday of every September, and it’s meant to shine a light on orphan pets in shelters and rescues that are waiting for their forever homes.
On this Remember Me Thursday, let’s get the whole world talking about pet adoption on social media! And now, here’s what one former shelter cat has to say about adoption.

The more the Mama talked about the seven-year-old Bodie, I thought it would be fun to interview him. So, that’s what I did! Continue reading “The Handsome Bodie Jones”
Cat rescues and sanctuaries each have their unique way of getting started. Today, we learn about a small cat rescue in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, fittingly named Bruce’s Legacy.
Rose Goodwine, founder and president, started the rescue in 2014 with the mission to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes. The 501(c)3 group also wants to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering, and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
How Bruce’s Legacy Came to Be
By Rose L. Goodwine

In 2005, shortly after my husband and I returned home from our Hurricane Katrina evacuation, two feral cats who had somehow survived the storm appeared on our back porch looking for food. We started to feed them and named them, although we were unable to make personal contact for quite some time. We named the brown and black tabby Bruce, and we named the orange tabby Rocky, mainly because he often showed up beaten and bruised. We also noticed that Bruce seemed to watch over and take care of Rocky, despite the obvious beatings he took from time to time.Continue reading “A Cat Named Bruce Inspires a Sanctuary”
