Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – June 15, 2015

Dear Friends,

Hope your week was a good one. I’ve been out on the road talking it up about special Bow-Tie at Cleanersneeds cats. My first order of business was getting my wardrobe in tip top shape. I took my laundry over to my favorite cleaners for some much needed attention.

They say no cat has ever brought bow ties, or anything else for that matter, in to be cleaned. What are they doing then? I am a dapper gent and want to look spiffy at all times. Am I wrong?

 

 

 

Bow-Tie Inspects the laundry

 

I even asked for a boost up to inspect them closer. After the sniff test to make sure they were fresh, I gave my paw of approval.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie Approves of his clean bow ties

 

 

The finished product was bagged, tagged and delivered. Wonderful service and wonderful handling of those precious bow ties.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie wants to help pets in need

 

 

When it was time to pay I noticed something on the counter.
​My cleaners supports local pets in need, especially cats! They particularly help bad situations like I was in. I had to help them help the others. So I gave them what I had………

 

 

 
Bow-Tie donates his precious crinkle ball to help cats in need

 

…I gave them one of my precious crinkle balls. It hurt me a little to give something up but then it felt so good knowing I was helping.

Humans have money they can give to help. I don’t really understand money being more valuable than a crinkle ball, but I hear it is.

We need to continue to tell them to give those pennies, nickles and dollars to help cats. (Donate to Friends Like Me) Look where I came from and where I am. Every penny counts. Am I right?

 

So that was my adventure earlier this week. Then I donned a clean bow tie and hit the streets but more on that next week. For right now…………….

Bye Bye for this week,

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – May 26, 2015

Dear Whitey and Friends,

Bow-Tie is Patriotic for Memorial Day

 

 

End of another week (or start of a new one). It’s Memorial Day Weekend so I have gone red, white and blue. Pretty dapper, don’t you think?

 

 

My head has always been a bit too big for my body. I was just made that way, but I’m cute, right? And then I’ve got that ear thing………..oh well.

 

 

 

I’ve been having a lot of new adventures since I have a happy home now. For one, I eat regularly and I eat cat food. Do you know that I used to just eat junk off the floor including bugs? Yuck.

I’m also getting really healthy. You know how I know that? I’ve been going to the vet. Never knew a vet before either. Imagine that. However….I’m not necessarily a fan of the vet.

Bow-Tie enjoys rides in the car

 

​​

Car rides are fun so I’m always ready to go. This particular car ride was less fun than usual.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie gets his weigh-in

 

 

 

It ended with me being put on a scale in the vet’s office. It showed I’m still a bit underweight but I’m working on that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie Waits at the Vet

 

 

​Then I got put in a room alone to wait. Wait? For what or for who?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie gets his blood pressure taken

 

 

​Uh oh. This is not a good look on The Dapper Gent. The numbers were ticking away. Don’t they know our blood pressure goes up by just putting that thing on us? Turns out my blood pressure is purrfect!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and the Thermometer

 

This looks like a loving embrace, right? I do not even want to tell you what someone else was sticking into my other end at this very moment. But, the result was that my temperature was normal so I guess it had to be done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie gets checked out by the vet

 

 

​My purrsonal physician came in to check my heart. When I was at Cat Depot I had what they call a heart murmur. That’s not good. But she kept listening and listening. The heart murmur is gone! She said I was anemic before and that may have caused it. All of the things that were wrong with me before are getting better now.

Oh Whitey, we need to work really hard to help all cats get homes and good care. I know that has always been your mission. Now that I’m working with you, we can both work really hard. Part of my mission will also be to rescue cats from hoarding homes.
Bow-Tie gets a nail trim

 

​Whitey, when they come at you with those clippers, just relax. If you fight, it takes longer. I just let them do it and it was over before I knew it.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie like the vet techs

 

​The ladies were all really nice to me. I have never had this much care before. We want to make sure I’m healthy and strong before I go out onto the streets and get to work. The mighty paws left before me need to keep walking. I’m almost fully healed and able to take on the task.

In the meantime, I’m working on Facebook and have a lot of friends and fans. The legacy of Friends Like Me will go on and be stronger than ever.

I know you’ll help me. We can get all of our cat friends into loving homes.

For now though I need to get over the big adventure at the vet…..
Bow-Tie says going to the vet ain't for sissies!

 

​Going to the vet ain’t for sissies!

Until next week,

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin

Dear Friends,

Well here we go. It’s Bow-Tie here and this is my first blog.

Meet Bow-Tie

 

I’ve picked up the magic wand and I’m ready to go. I know I have Mighty big paws to fill but I will do my very best to help special needz cats. And to carry on the very important work of Friends Like Me.

Please don’t be surprised if I spell sum things wrong. I never used a computer before. I never really used anything before becuz I had a very, very bad life before Cat Depot rescued me.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie came from a hoarding situation

 

 

My life was in a hoarder’s house. That will be part of what I talk about when I go into the public. It’s important that people know cats suffer there and it must be stopped. But…….for today I’m just going to let you know I’m on the job and I’m excited about starting my new life and new job.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie's First Gig

 

We went on a trial run to see if could behave in public. Of course I behaved in public. I’m on the way to a healthy, happy life and I’ll do everything I can to be worthy. My real name is Bow-Tie (remember the dash for uniqueness). My title is The Dapper Gent (wonder why??)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Ties' Name Tags have been engraved

 

 

My name is now official….

​Name tags were printed with my name on them. I oversaw the work myself.

So by formal announcement and introduction, Bow-Tie is on the job. Whitey Wobbles and I are still on the path to help special needs cats, and all cats. I’m on it and I’m getting all ready to go out to educate the public so they help us.
Bow-Tie is a small kitty taking on a big job

 

​I’m very small and it’s a long journey. But every journey starts with a small step. I was not able to walk well when I got to Cat Depot but I can walk now. So walk I will, to fill those Mighty paws and continue the good work.

 

In the meantime……

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is safe and comfy in his new home

 

I’m just very thankful I am clean, fed and loved. We need to work really hard to help every cat feel such security and safety.

Until next time, my new friends,

Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent
