On a scale of Meh to Squeeeee, kittens rank at Squeeeee Plus for me. I suspect I’m not alone in this opinion.
Today is National Kitten Day.
There will likely be more than the usual number of kitten pictures and videos popping up on social media sites (especially since, as we all know, cats actually control the interwebs). We may hear fun news reports about kittens. Our neighbors might talk about kittens. We might get emails about kittens. It might be kittens, kittens everywhere.
We may not be able to escape the kitten mania today. I’m okay with this possibility.
While we’re enjoying the fluffy floofiness, it’s also a good time to consider how to support our local animal shelters and other organizations that care for abandoned or sick cats and kittens. One of my favorites is the Lanai Cat Sanctuary, but there are many others that provide these kinds of services. They appreciate every penny, hour, or bag of kibble that is donated.
Happiness can often be found in soft purrs and tiny meows. Let the squeeeees begin.
