Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 5, 2016

Bow-Tie can't walk away from the projectDear Everyone,

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!

Bow-Tie approves of this carrier

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.

 

Plastic boxes are not safe as cat carriersThe clinic sees some pretty unsafe modes of transportation every day.

For instance…

…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.

 

 

 

With the lid on, the cat won't get any airAnd because they have lids…

…when closed there is no air, and the cat will suffer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's easy to jump out of a plastic boxAlso, when the lid is opened…

…the nervous and frightened cat will pop out and probably run.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie likes to ride shotgun, but it's not safeSome 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.

Safety.

 

 

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.

This, for instance, is not safe, and it’s way below the dignity of a cat.

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…

…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!
