My Rescue Pets #RememberMeThursday

As most readers know by now, we’re proud to be participating in Remember Me Thursday here at Three Chatty Cats. And today is the day…it’s Remember Me Thursday and we want everyone talking about pet adoption on social media!

We’ve already shared Woodrow’s Pro Tips for Adopting a Shelter Cat (from a former shelter cat!) – and that’s also the post where fellow bloggers can link up to the official Remember Me Thursday Blog Hop that we’re co-hosting with Lola the Rescued Cat.

But today, I’d like to share with you our pets’ rescue stories. Some of you may already know them, and some may be reading them for the first time. But what better day to share about our rescue pets again than on #RememberMeThursday. And perhaps, someone considering getting a new pet will decide on pet adoption first.

7 Easy Ways to Help Shelter Pets

If you’re an animal lover, you’ve likely found yourself asking “What can I do to help shelter pets?” Knowing that there are millions of animals waiting in shelters and rescues across the country, you may feel a bit insignificant when looking at the big picture.

Thankful Sunday Selfies

We here at Three Chatty Cats have a lot to be thankful for. So for our Sunday Selfies, we thought we’d pass along our thanks.

Handmade Toys are the Best

First off, a big thank you to Auntie Ellen – I mean the Tooth Fairy – over at 15 and Meowing for sending our little Olive some toys after her dental surgery, which I wrote about earlier. Ellen sent so many toys that Olive agreed to share some of them with foster cat Juno, who was excited to do her first ever Sunday Selfie!

Shelter Me: Community Matters (Episode 7)

Last May, I shared with you Episode 6 from the “Shelter Me” series. And recently, I was given the opportunity to watch the latest episode of the national PBS show “Shelter Me: Community Matters”.

Created by filmmaker Steven Latham, hosted by animal welfare icon Dr. Jane Goodall, and presented by the Petco Foundation, the latest installment of “Shelter Me” focuses on when communities come together to help animals in need. Continue reading “Shelter Me: Community Matters (Episode 7)”

Lakes Animal Friendship Society & “Nobody’s Cats”

Founded by Valerie Ingram and Alistair Schroff in 2008, Lakes Animal Friendship Society (LAFS) is based in Burns Lake, British Columbia in Canada. The group is run by the husband and wife team and recently became a non-profit charity.

Valerie and Alistair also authored a children’s book called Nobody’s Cats, which is how I learned about the rescue group. Fellow blogger Cori of Three Irish Cats wrote about the children’s book, and I promptly ordered it, finding it to be a great educational book that teaches children about trap-neuter-return (TNR) and the importance of caring for community cats.
