If you are fortunate enough to be in New York this Saturday, April 30, head over to Bideawee Animal Shelter to celebrate the first annual National Tabby Day. The event will include the official launch of the book featuring Buffy, our favorite inspirationally active cat. Author Sandy Robins will be on hand, and drinks and treats will be available for two- and four-legged attendees.
Of course, a holiday called National Tabby Day would not be complete without cat adoptions, and plenty of cats will be available, all looking for their forever homes. Anyone who adopts on that day will receive a nice starter kit from the event’s sponsors, as well as a photo op with Buffy’s official photographer, Paul Smulson.
We hope that you’ll consider taking an older cat into your home on National Tabby Day. Remember that senior cats make excellent companions and lap warmers, and they (probably) won’t climb your curtains. Just take a look at these great cats at Bideawee, and learn more about any of them at www.bideawee.org. Vital details for National Tabby Day appear at the end of this post!
First up is Pepper, a 10-year-old girl who looks lovely in her brown & black tabby pattern.
Earle is 10 and a half years old. He’s a big boy, all black, and as you can see from his video below, he’s quite playful!
Toby lived all of his 11 years with the same owner, until she passed away. Naturally he is a bit confused by his new situation, but as you can see, he is a really loving cat who just needs some time and patience. Maybe you can be the one to provide Toby a safe home where he can open up and be happy again. Toby needs a gentle person or family, and he would enjoy the company of another adult cat too.
Last but certainly not least is Wall E, who is 15 years old and sports a gray and white coat. He is very shy and sweet, and he will need some extra patience from his new person. But as you can see from his video, your patience will be rewarded with Wall E’s sweet, sweet love.
