I can’t walk away from this project… It’s in full stride now. (See the word game I played right there? Haha!)
I’m talking about Carriers for Cats.
Last week I introduced it, and guess what happened?
People are jumping on board to help!
Carriers for Cats is now part of the Friends Like Me program.
A good friend of mine had the idea to donate cat carriers for people who cannot afford them.
Now other people are asking if they can donate carriers, or donate the cost to purchase one.
Of course you can!
Every cat needs to be safe when they are transported.
The clinic sees some pretty unsafe modes of transportation every day.
…plastic totes are brought in carrying cats way too often.
Why aren’t they safe?
Because if they are left open, the cat can easily jump out when frightened.
And because they have lids…
…when closed there is no air, and the cat will suffer.
Also, when the lid is opened…
…the nervous and frightened cat will pop out and probably run.
Some cats (like me) enjoy going places.
Some of us like to just cruise around, sitting on the seat of the car.
As cool as that looks, it’s not safe.
The only way to transport a cat is in a safe carrier made for cats.
That’s what carriers for cats is all about.
I will make the first delivery of Carriers for Cats on Friday, December 18th.
I will be at Cat Depot with them at 2 PM.
After that, we’ll make regular monthly deliveries.
Our goal is to get every cat that comes into the clinic a safe ride.
And, by the way, don’t even think about putting a cat in something stupid for transport.
This, for instance, is not safe, and it’s way below the dignity of a cat.
Besides, it’s easy to jump out.
See what I mean!
See you next week.
