Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – November 21, 2016

Bow-Tie got a cardDear Friends,

Look what I got!

I got a Thanksgiving Day card in the mail.

It’s from my friend Mike and the Kitties.

He’s generous with Cat Depot, and is especially generous with the Friends Like Me Fund.

Thank you, Mike and the Kitties!

(Yes, you do see someone trying to sneak into the picture.)


Bow-Tie feels specialI feel pretty special that someone remembers me so often, and helps my special needs friends.

I feel pretty special indeed!







Bow-Tie and Annie SullivanThe card makes me think about things I’m thankful for, and I have a lot of things.

I was saved from a very, very bad situation, and now I have a wonderful home.

And as I look around I see my special friends who love me, and I love them back.

We all need friends.

We need each other.

So, my short and sweet message this week is to be thankful.

Be thankful for what you have and find good in everything.


Bow-Tie sees the bright side of lifeThere is good in everything.

Sometimes we have to look a little harder than other times, but we can find good if we look.






Bow-Tie and Annie Sullivan say Happy ThanksgivingHappy Thanksgiving, my dear friends.

Don’t eat too much turkey!

Bow-Tie in hat and bandanaHowdy Pardners!

Excuse my unsightly costume.

It’s way beneath me, but I wore it to make a point.

We need to talk about this Halloween thing again.

Halloween can be dangerous for your cats.

You will likely be opening and shutting the door all night.

It’s very easy for your beloved cat to slip out the door.





Bow-Tie demonstrating outdoors

Once outside, they will become confused.

They really didn’t mean to run out.

They were afraid of all the commotion and just got lost in the shuffle.

If you don’t see them right away it only gets worse.





Bow-Tie in the jungleThey can become very afraid and try to hide.

They may not even come if you call them, once you realize they’re gone.







Bow-Tie outdoorsThey won’t like it out there, and they won’t know what to do.

I’m not trying to make you feel bad.

I just want to remind you to keep your kitties safe on Halloween night.







Bow-Tie snuggled up in bedYou know where they want to be.

Snuggled safely in the house.

Please keep an extra eye on them, or lock them safely in a room away from the door.








Bow-Tie looking extra cuteConsider this a reminder…

…from someone who knows how kitties think!

Enjoy Halloween and be safe.

Love you all!

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – December 14, 2015

Dear Whitey,

Things are in full mode “Holiday Spirit” over here.

It’s official now… the tree is up.

Well, MY tree is up.

What do you think?

Bowtie with his new tree

Quite the collection, don’t you think?


Bowtie putting a finishing touch on his tree

Oh, wait.

One more adjustment…

…Now it’s purrfect.

This will be my first Christmas.

Never before have I lived in a home.

Never before have I felt loved.

Never before have I been happy.



Things are different now!

I am so thankful to have a home of my own, someone to love me, and food every day.

My Christmas wish is that every cat at Cat Depot has the same happiness I do.

And if the special needs cats would be the first to find homes, I would be over the moon!


Now, I hear the tradition is to put milk and cookies out for a guy who comes down the chimney.

I won’t give up the milk and I don’t have any cookies, but…

…I have something more valuable to put out for him.

Bowtie and Courage talking about SantaCourage has never had Christmas either.

This is the first time she has a home, love, food, safety, and is pain free.

So we had a little meeting.

“Yes, Courage, there is a Santa. He sends angels to adopt us and love us. You and I are very lucky.”

We’re on our way to a Merry Christmas.

I’ve got this one!
