Have you heard about Petfinder’s latest campaign? It is just for us kitties, and encourages humans to declare their love and worship of us!
You see, last year at BlogPaws, the Petfinder humans explained they had a dilemma: they had figured out all sorts of fun, creative ways to promote adopting dogs, but they were a little stumped about what to do to raise the number of cat adoptions! We kitties need our own special approach, and it is nothing like promoting dogs. So here is one thing they are doing: asking humans to spread the word about how awesome it is to be a cat person!
It is time to get rid of all the stigma and negative stereotypes some humans have tried to peg on cat people. Did you know that 33 million humans who live with cats are married? Or that 9.6 million are single men? So Petfinder has created a series of graphics cat humans can download and print out or add to their social media pages or blogs. One is above. Here is another one:
And my personal favorite:
I only have one problem with this… and if you know me, you probably have already guessed what it is: the confounded “cat parent” thing! My human is a lot of things to me — assistant, waitress, litter box attendant and servant. She is not my parent! So I am thinking that maybe we kitties should have our own campaign. What do you think:
On second thought, maybe we kitties should keep our own campaign private and let the humans think what they want. We’ll let ’em in on the truth later.
Petfinder does awesome work!

Ah Sparkle – how did I know that you would place your own special spin on the cat parent thing? Don’t worry – you’re secret is safe with me! 😉

We love the Cat Guy one! We didn’t know about this campaign but yet these days we don’t know about many things. *sigh*. Hope your human got all her dad’s tax stuff finished up!
I think my Dad needs the Cat Guy one fur sure!
Thanks for telling us about this campaign. Mom found Astrid on PetFinder, which led her to a TNR group that she’s joined as a volunteer and also to the next two kitties she adopted. She’ll do what she can to help. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

The Island Cats says
Ha! We will support the kitty campaign 100%, Sparkle!
We like that last graphic. After all the humans are our servants. We have ours pretty well trained. We sure will pass the word around about how terrific cats are. Take care.
What an excellent idea !
Arthur thanks for the birthday wishes !

We don’t have Petfinder in the UK so we can’t promote their campaign. What we can do though is tell everyone how wonderful cats are.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
