Calico Cat Day – My name is Lilly Bug and I made a holiday called Calico Cat Day. #CalicoCatDay #CalicoCats
Calico Cat Day
On March 26, was Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. So I came up with Calico Cat since I am a Calico. My gotcha or adopted day was January 24, so I figured how fitting to make January 24th of each year as Calico Cat Day. I couldn’t find any such days and that is why I created this day. So the first occurrence of this day will be January 24, 2019.
So I created this blog post in enough time to be seen and get the word out!
I was adopted on January 24, 2015. So this first celebration will be on my fourth year.
Make sure you let others know about this day. Share this blog post. Tell other people about this day with a link to this blog post! Share it on social media!
Meet Maya The Cat – A Tabby cat with a chromosomal abnormality.
Meet Maya The Cat
This chromosomal abnormality is similar to Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21) in hoomans. She was found in the back of a Chinese restaurant. Yes, that sounds bad as we all know the jokes about cats and dogs and Chinese restaurants.
She has one extra chromosome.
Sadly she was taken to a kill shelter, in my opinion, those types of shelters shouldn’t exist. She was also put on death row because the way she looked and acted.
Global Cat Day (National Feral Cat Day) #GlobalCatDay
Global Cat Day (National Feral Cat Day)
This day is held annually on October 16 to raise the awareness for the need to adopt or foster cats and kittens. This day got started by Alley Cats in 2001.
According to Alley Cat Allies, since feral cats can’t adapt to indoor living after being wild, the best way to help them is to treat them with the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) process. This is wat Feral Felines Friends of East Tennessee does.
Companion Animal Rescue & Education (CARE) – As an open admission shelter we will ACCEPT ALL Jefferson County, TN companion animals that are in need.
