Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – April 10, 2017

Hi Everyone,

I’m a bit of a worrier.

I like everything to be right with the world.

Aside from being concerned at times, I do try to look on the bright side of things.


There’s always time…

Look at the beauty!

…to look at the beauty around us.


Stop and smell the flowers!There’s always time…

…to stop and smell the roses, or orchids, or whatever these are.







Play with the flowersThere’s always time…

…to play with the pretty things of nature.









Just one little lick...But did you know beauty can be deadly?

One little lick of the wrong plant or flower can make a cat sick.









Beautiful, but deadlyActually, eating a lot of a toxic plant…

…can be fatal to a feline.








I'm a cat, I just have toAnd you know what?

Cats will be cats, so you’ll just have to watch them around plants.

They will tell you, “I won’t, I won’t, I won’t.”

But they’re cats.

They will.




Always someone plotting...Just when you think your pretty spring bouquets are safe…

…there’s a feline somewhere, plotting how to swoop in!


Be safe.

Keep your cats safe.

Enjoy your spring flowers and plants, but keep them away from feline munchers.

They’re everywhere!

Until next week.

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – August 15, 2016

Bow-Tie wears a black bow tieHi Everybody,

Big week coming up in the cat world!

I’m not sporting this black tie for nothing.

I have an important announcement.


August 17th is National Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Cat Depot is making it National Black Cat Week from August 15th to August 21st.

During that week, all adopters of black cats get a $20 gift certificate to Columbia Restaurant… and a feline friend for life.


Bow-Tie laughs at humansSometimes it’s a little bit harder for black cats to get adopted.

That’s because people are silly and believe silly things.

It makes me laugh that humans are so silly.








Black cats are wonderful.

Let me show you some of my special black friends who need homes.


Marcus is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotThis is Marcus.

Marcus is a handsome dude who is very gentle and quiet.

He would love a nice, quiet home.








Rosalita is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotThis is Rosalita.

She’s a pretty little girl, isn’t she?

She would add beauty to any home and family.







Jade is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotMeet Jade.

She’s a lovely, petite girl who would love to curl up on your lap.







Stardust is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotThis is Stardust.

She is a little cutie who loves to give head rubs.

Stardust is FIV positive, but perfectly healthy, and will live a long life.

If you do not know about FIV cats, please talk to the people at Cat Depot.

They will educate you on these cats and prove they are just as wonderful as any other cat.

Stardust will show you herself if you stop in to see her.


So these are my black cat friends, and this is my wish…

…that you adopt a black cat during National Black Cat Appreciation Week, August 15-21.


And to all those silly humans who think black cats are any less lucky in life, I say…

Bow-Tie makes a goofy face

…take that!

Here’s to black cats, and National Black Cat Week!

Bow-Tie sadHi Everyone,

This is my sad look.

You know what makes me sad?

Seeing all the lost dogs and cats on Facebook.

Have you seen them all?

I always try to spread the news if they’re local, so they can get back home.





Bow-Tie in the yardIt’s really bad when a pet is lost.

They’re very scared and often hide, so it’s hard to find them.

Cats are especially scared, so people have a hard time even seeing them.

They say only 2% of lost cats are returned to their owners.






Bow-Tie demonstrates how small a cat isWe’re really small, and the world is really big… and scary.

There are so many dangers outside.







Bow-Tie in the jungleOnce we have a nice home, we are unequipped to handle the outside.

Everything poses a danger and we have a terrible time.







Bow-Tie poses in the yardSo, what’s the answer?

Most importantly, don’t let indoor cats outside.

Sometimes we make a mistake and run out an open door.

Please run after us!

We really would rather be inside than outside.





Bow-Tie talks about microchipping petsAnd, there is something you can do as soon as you adopt us, to make sure we get back home.

A microchip!

It’s as tiny as a grain of rice.

It goes under the skin with a needle in seconds.

And it saves lives!




Bow-Tie the explorerEvery microchip has a unique number and is registered.

It has the cat’s information and the owner information.

Cat Depot puts a microchip in every single cat before they are adopted.

Then, when they are adopted, the new owner’s information is registered.

Microchips give us the best chance of getting back home to you.




Bow-Tie peeking through the fenceWant to hear a funny story?

A lady adopted a dog and the shelter told her he had a microchip.

She asked how far he could go before it started beeping.

That’s funny, because a microchip isn’t a tracking device, like a GPS.

Anyone who finds a lost animal still needs to take it to a shelter or vet to be scanned.

A scanner can detect the microchip and find the owner.




Bow-Tie presents the moral of the storyThe moral of the story?

Humans – keep your cat inside.

Cats – stop running out the door.

Cat Depot – thanks for microchipping us!

Until next week,

The Dapper Gent
