We recently had new neighbors move in nextdoor, and they happen to have a cat that mostly stays outside. Unsurprisingly, this particular kitty happened to get pregnant and had a litter of kittens just several weeks ago. As of late, it seems the cats have settled in our yard permanently, though. We've begun seeing the kittens wandering around on a daily basis, searching for food and excitement. The kittens are absolutely adorable and remind me of how our kitties were as tiny, floofy babies.
I know my Feline Friday posts are typically on the lighter, carefree side, but today, I'd like to talk about a more serious issue. With both the fall season and Halloween quickly approaching, I feel it's an important one to address. You know that old superstition about black cats bringing misfortune if you cross their path? Please, please, don't buy into that. They're sweet, precious, and beautiful creatures that deserve to be treated with love, kindness, and respect. Like any other domestic animal, they deserve to have loving forever homes, with humans who will always care for and protect them.
I talked a bit about Zen's background in my introductory Feline Friday post, but I didn't really go in depth with all that she went through. So today, I want to share Zen's story, and all that she's overcome throughout the years.
I want to spotlight some of the ways you can help these amazing shelters and organizations. They help care for the precious, vulnerable animals of this world, the same animals that we love and treasure. That is truly commendable. Right now, these organizations need help to continue doing what they do.
