I grew up being a dog owner.
And we had a LOT of them: Sugar, Coach, Chloe, Claire, and Shadow (who is still here with us today!).
From the day I was born, a dog was part of our family and so owning (and loving!) a cat was never on my radar.
It wasn’t until I moved in with my (now) husband, that I became a cat owner. It started as just something I would try because Brian loved cats and always had one growing up. I was hesitant, but decided to give it a shot.
One cat turned into two cats, and now, I feel like I can call myself a tried-and-true real life cat person!
I love our two boys George and Junior. Both are short haired rescues (I’m allergic to long haired kitties) that were both adopted- one from the Humane Society and the other from a colleague who was moving away. I never realized how much I could love two cats, but now, I couldn’t imagine life without them!
Although they are independent (as I learned most cats are), they are also loving, playful, and love to snuggle with us on the couch or on the bed at night. Nothing is as sweet as the purr of a cat on your lap after a long day. <3
This week, June 1st – June 7th, Scotties Facial Tissues is hosting a Cat & Kitten Adoption Event at Humane Society of Tampa Bay! This is one of three adoption events across the country!
For this week only, all cat and kitten adoptions at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay up to $5,000 will be sponsored (free to good homes!) in an effort to get these fabulous felines into loving forever homes. All fees associated with adopting these cats and kittens will be waived. Initiated by Scotties in 2014, this ongoing effort to increase the number cats and kittens going to good homes has been a key focus for the brand. In the past four years, Scotties has found homes for more than 700 cats and kittens!
All cats and kittens up for adoption will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and tested for temperament.
