SpayDay for Love

I'm such a sucker when it comes to kitties.  Or dogs.

It might be because loving animals is a lot less complex than loving humans.  That's because my kitty provides me lots of free entertainment, doesn't talk back and never asks for money. 

So when my sister-in-law sent me this site from the Humane Society ....

I couldn't resist perusing through the photos of all kinds of rescue pets, reading about their quirky behaviors and how much their owners loved them.

We rescued Kramer and his sister, Zoey, from an Indianapolis shelter 14 years ago.  My then 10 year old pleaded for me to stop by and just go in to visit.  I was absolutely firm with her that we were not taking any cats home.

Absolutely NOT!


An hour later, we were walking out, not with just one cat, but TWO!

See what I mean.  I'm such a sucker when it comes to kitties.

must not go to shelters
must not go to shelters
must not go to shelters

But back to the main message.

What is Spay Day?  It's an annual event of The Humane Society to inspire folks to save animals' lives.  Here's what they have to say:

"To support Spay Day, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International host the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest, presented by Zazzle—a great opportunity to celebrate our pets, raise funds for spaying and neutering, and win great prizes! "

If you are a kitty, dog, hamster, or whatever animal lover, check out their website:

And enter your pet!  Like I did.

And when you can,
support your local animal shelter.

And maybe ...

stop by one ...

and fall in love.
