Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – July 10, 2017

Bow-Tie wants you to guess his age
Dear Everyone,

Guess how old I am.

Look closely at my face and see if you can guess.

I look good for my age, so don’t be fooled.

Give up?

I am 9 1/2 years old.

 

Why have I revealed my age?

Because I am considered a senior cat.

Any cat over the age of 8 (7.5 is close enough) is considered to be a senior.

 

Senior cats are often overlooked in shelters, because of their age.

I’m here to dispel that myth!

 

Bow-Tie in the beginningI was 7 1/2 years old when I came into Cat Depot, and considered a senior.

At that time I didn’t look very good, and I felt even worse.

Someone gave this senior a chance, and now I have a wonderful life.

 

My mission is to help other cats, particularly special needs cats.

But seniors need help too.

So, today I want to introduce some of my senior friends.

My hope is someone will fall in love with each one of them and give them a furever home.

 

 

AslanThis is Aslan.

Aslan came to Cat Depot as a stray.

He had a home at one time.

We don’t know how he ended up a stray.

He is a little shy, because he’s new in the shelter, but an ear rub makes him your best friend.

Aslan is 10 1/2 years young.

 

 

 

GraceThis is Grace.

Grace was surrendered by her family because of allergies.

She is understandably confused and stressed, having lost her home.

She loves attention and would adjust purrfectly into a quiet new home.

Grace is 8 years young.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patty CakesThis is Patty Cakes. Feel free to shorten that to Patty if you wish.

Patty Cake’s purrson had to go to a nursing home, and she came to Cat Depot.

She is sad for her purrson, and sad for herself.

Some of the other cats told her she wouldn’t get a home, because she is 11 years old.

She told them 11 is middle age for a cat, and to hiss off!

Patty Cakes is a sweet old girl.

 

 

 

Torrie DetectiveHere is Torrie the Detective.

Torrie isn’t really a detective, she just played one recently at Critter Camp.

She was a great helper and is a sweet girl who loves a good head rub.

She is special needs.

She doesn’t have a tail and sometimes leaves little treasures outside the litter box.

Torrie is 8 1/2 years young.

 

 

 

 

Mattie with bow tieAnd finally, here is Mattie.

She’s sporting a bow tie in an effort to get adopted.

She’s in the “chubby kitty pod” but that just means there is more of her to love!

Mattie is social and affectionate, and 7 1/2 years young.

(If she gets adopted, I’ll make sure she gets a better looking bow tie. Good try anyway, Mattie.)

 

 

 

 

So, here’s the information on adopting a senior cat:

The event is called the Cat Depot Classic

It happens Friday, July 14 at 11 AM until July 16 at 5 PM.

The reduced adoption fee for senior cats 8 years and older (7 1/2 is close enough) will be $25.00

With each Senior Adoption you will get:

A clinic visit certificate worth $30.00

A gift bag including a bed, bowls, treat, etc worth $40.00

 

Marianne and Bow-TieMiss Marianne helped me with my adoption papers when I was 7 1/2 years old.

We were both very happy I found my furever home.

She and many others are waiting to help YOU adopt a senior cat.

 

Do it for me.

Do it for yourself.

Most of all, do it for a senior cat!

 

Love you!

Bow-Tie with flowersDear Friends,

It’s Mother’s Day.

Today, mothers all over will get gifts.

Some gifts are useful and thoughtful.

Some gifts… not so much.

So, what do you get for a mother?

 

Flowers seem to be the number once choice.

Flowers say, “I love you,” but the pretty dies pretty quickly.

 

Bow-Tie with fruitThere’s the Fruit of the Month club…

…but nobody likes that.

It’s just too much fruit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with jewelryThen there are the sparkly trinkets.

The ladies always go for jewelry.

 

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

What to get that says just the right thing, and will last long after Mother’s Day ends?

 

I have a great idea!

Let me show you.

 

Bow-Tie searches in his boxI have to get it out…

…it’s way down at the bottom of this box.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mixie in a boxHere it is!

The purrfect gift!

Adopt a kitty!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Courage in the boxNow, that would be the purrfect gift for any mother!

There’s one for everybody.

They come in different colors and sizes, so she can pick the purrfect one.

 

 

 

 

 

Mixie finds modeling tiringLet’s all shout it out…

…Happy Mother’s Day!

 

See you next week.

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie talks about daylight savings timeHi Everyone,

Guess what time it is?

It’s time to change those clocks again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie changes his clockTime for everyone to run around…

…and spin the hands on their clocks.

 

But that’s a human thing.

Cats are different.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says it's time to eatWe think of only two things when we look at the clock.

One is… it’s time to EAT!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie changes his clockThe second is more frequent and just as important.

When we look at the clock we know what we need to do up to 16 hours a day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says it's time to sleepWhat is it?

Sleep, of course.

For a cat, it’s always a good time to sleep.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wishes happy clock-change-dayWatch your cats today.

Their schedule will stay the same, even though you changed the clock.

How do we do that???

Happy Clock Change Day!

 

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 19, 2016

Bow-Tie arrived early, on the lookout for carriersHi Everyone,

My heart feels so good this week.

We made our first delivery of Carriers for Cats.

That’s the program that provides carriers for people who do not have them.

It’s all about safety for the cats.

We drove to the assigned location for the pickup of carriers.

I got there early and was on the lookout for the delivery.

 

Bow-Tie's box with carriersAnd there it is!

No mistaking the special labeling!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie piled all the carriers in the carWe loaded all 15 carriers into my transport vehicle.

Every carrier received my paw stamp of approval.

Then we were on our way to Cat Depot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie arrived to Cat Depot with carriers piled highOnce we arrived at Cat Depot, I got into the driver’s seat.

We piled them high and headed in to distribute them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie with a group of friends from Cat DepotMy friends from the clinic and adoption staff met me to receive the carriers.

They were all so thankful to have them.

They told me just that morning a lady came in with her cat in a bag.

She had no carrier and needed to get her cat to the clinic.

We’re grateful she brought the cat into the clinic.

Now she can have a new carrier, so her cat is safe.

 

Thank you to the anonymous angel who made this all possible.

Carriers for Cats is now part of the Friends Like Me Program.

It does a heart good to help someone… human or feline.

 

Have a happy week!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – November 28, 2016

Bow-Tie on top of the worldDear Friends,

I’m speaking to you from on top of the world today!

Well, actually I’m speaking to you from on top of a cat carrier.

But I’m on top of the world about a very special announcement!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie inside a carrierWondering why I’m in a cat carrier?

Wondering why I’m so excited about cat carriers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cats in CarriersWell that’s my big announcement.

I’m introducing a very special program called, “Cats in Carriers.”

 

A dear friend of the Friends Like Me program contacted me.

She heard about a lady who took her two cats to the vet in a cardboard box.

She did not have a proper cat carrier.

When they got to the vet, one of the cats jumped out of the box and ran away.

We commend her for taking the cats to the vet.

We are saddened by the loss of one of her beloved cats.

 

 

Cats in CarriersOur dear friend asked me if she could provide carriers through the Friends Like Me program.

I could not have said “yes” fast enough, because the need is actually great.

People do transport their cats in an unsafe manner, and we need to fix that.

 

 

 

 

 

Cats in CarriersShe ran out right away and purchased the first batch of cat carriers.

She mixed it up in color so they’re even more exciting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cats in CarriersThey’re nice and roomy, even for the biggest cat.

“Cats in Carriers” will become an ongoing part of the Friends Like Me program at Cat Depot.

The carriers will be distributed through Cat Depot’s clinic to people who do not have and cannot afford them.

My friend wants to remain anonymous (to everyone but me.)

So I will personally make the first delivery of carriers to Cat Depot very soon.

 

Bow-Tie endorsedThe “Cats in Carriers” part of Friends Like Me is Bow-Tie endorsed!

 

 

 

 

 

 

A cat carrier is the only safe way to transport your cat…

Bow-Tie squished

…the cat doesn’t have to like it, but they will be safe.

Thank you to my very good and generous friend of Friends Like Me!

Love,

Bow-Tie
