Happy National Cat Day
8:30 pm | October 29, 2021

We think cats are the greatest thing in the world…but, you know… that’s just us.

There are many people behind our visually fragrant wall of catnip, that make this stellar day,rule the world, every year and they are official CAT PEOPLE.

Some of them live with cats and some just wear kitty ears…others; cats on their socks and bow-ties. Our team is brilliant and creative, they meow when spoken to, come running when called, bump noses, keep their litter boxes clean, purr when happy and just like cats, are witty and engaging. Sadly however, some of our “cat day peeps” still live under a veil of lies, that humans are superior to cats and that cats worship us. We’re working on quickly dissolving this desperate delusion, bringing them into reality gently, with the assistance of professional counselors, going slowly…kitten step by kitten step, so that when the TRUTH sets in, their minds aren’t completely obliterated.

Cats Rule The World. Yeah…they really do.

What We Do
We explode the internet every October 29th. We live to celebrate cats and help them to find forever homes. Through our large social media & press platform, all year long we’re able to partake in the wonderful world of cats and put the plight of cats in shelters, center stage. We educate literally millions all year long but on October 29th….it’s party time! We encourage you to spoil your fur baby a little more on National Cat Day than any other day (you don’t want them to get too demanding do you?) by buying them a new toy drenched in cat nip, giving them something simply scrumptious to eat, offering LOTS more cuddling and making a donation to your local shelter in their honor. The best way you can celebrate though is to save a life! So if you can….ADOPT….don’t shop. Estimates reveal that there are approximately 4 million cats entering shelters every year with 1-2 million being euthanized. Often cats are overlooked and under-appreciated because they don’t usually have jobs like dogs. But cats still lower blood pressure, offer unconditional love and companionship, tons of laughs and alert their owner to danger. Many cats have been named heroes. So take that…dogs!

What We Believe

We believe that every cat should have a forever home where they are safe, warm, loved, cherished and regarded as FAMILY.

We believe that cats are PURfect best friends and are among the funniest animals on the planet.

We believe that life just isn’t the same without a cat in it.

We believe in adoption to help reduce the number of unwanted cats that flood shelters and rescues every day.

We believe in spaying & neutering as a way to end the suffering and overpopulation of cats around the globe.

We believe that no matter where a cat comes from, being a cat parent is a precious gift and a responsibility one should not take lightly. Please make sure you can properly care for a cat before you commit to opening your heart and home.

Not only is the Beagle an excellent hunting dog and loyal companion, it is also happy-go-lucky, funny, and thanks to its pleading expression so cute. They were bred to hunt in packs, so they enjoy company and are generally easygoing. A breed described as ‘merry’ by its fanciers, Beagles are loving and lovable, happy, and companionable all qualities that make them excellent family dogs. No wonder that for years the Beagle has been the most popular hound dog among American pet owners. These are curious, clever, and energetic hounds who require plenty of playtime.

How to Walk Your Human

Miss Sally and Miss Betty’s Guide on How to Walk a Human
Humans need exercise. If they don’t get it the become “chubby.” It’s up to the dogs to save them.
1. Allow your human to tether themselves to you. This keeps them from wondering off or running away.
2. Your human will probably need breaks. Be considerate and stop and sniff often.
3. Bark frequently. Humans have short attention spans.
4. When you go to the bathroom, walk away. If you have trained your human correctly, they will pick it up. Good aerobics.
5. Periodically drag your human as fast as you can. This is called interval training.
6. Do not allow your human to shorten the walk. They are being lazy. Sit in protest if you must.
7. Once you return home, allow your human to remove their tether, then lick their face many times. This is positive reinforcement for a job well done!
8. Nap!
