Happy Earth Day! Is your human recycling? Good! Bringing his or her own totes when shopping for your cat food? Great! Using environmentally friendly litter? Paws up! If your humans are also handing you the occasional handmade or makeshift toy — a milk ring, bottle cap, or shipping box — that is also awesome. These are all small ways to lessen the carbon footprint that we kitties and our humans leave on the planet.
But are your humans doing the most important kitty recycling? That is, getting a recycled kitty from a shelter? Are they helping to prevent more wasted kitty lives by spreading the word about the importance of spaying and neutering cats? Are they aiding TNR organizations in their work to stop kitty littering? I know most of you humans reading this blog already make efforts in these areas, but are you doing your part to spread the word?
When it comes to Earth Day, caring for the planet has many faces.
