Remember my blog post where I said I was going to announce something I am doing this year to help less fortunate kitties? Well, I actually had no idea what I was going to do — I just knew it was going to be good! But the next day, my human was talking with some other humans of blogging kitties on Facebook and they came up with an awesome brainstorm! Let me explain a little about its origins.
Everyone was wondering if there was going to be a Santa Paws Drive this year, and it turned out there wasn’t — as much as they wanted it to happen, Dorian and the elves couldn’t carve out enough time to make it happen for 2014. But instead of just sitting around being bummed about it, the cat blogger humans wondered what would happen if we all tried to so something similar, but for cats in our own communities? And that’s how the Santa Kitty Toy Hop got started.
To participate in the Santa Kitty Toy Hop, all you have to do is play Santa Kitty to a rescue in your area. Bring the kitties cat toys, treats, or other gifts to brighten their holidays. Take photos of your visit, and then write a blog post about the rescue and what you did. There will be a blog hop that I will host starting on December 12 and going through December 19. It will be a linky you will be able to share on your own blog if you so desire. We cat bloggers are everywhere, so we are hoping to bring the spirit of Santa Kitty to cats worldwide!
If there aren’t any rescues in your immediate area, you can still participate by giving gifts to a favorite rescue in another area and blogging about what you are doing. And if you don’t have a blog, feel free to spread cheer at your local rescue anyway, because it is a nice thing to do! You can even tell me in the comments about your experience on the blog hop day!
So let’s all join together to make the holidays a little happier for kitties who don’t have homes yet. Grab the graphic above (the one without me!) and get started! Here is a smaller graphic if you want to put it in your sidebar:
I hope you have lots of fun bringing cheer to rescue kitties near you!
