It has been two and a half years since I took on being “Mom” to three 2-week old motherless kittens that my friend Trisha found in a neighbors shed. I took them in, bottle fed them, litter trained them, got them fixed, and took on the commitment of 15+ years of cat ownership. But my three kitties were lucky. Millions of cats and kittens are taken to shelters every day in hopes of finding a forever home like mine, and sadly some never do. But Scotties Facial Tissues is trying to help change that by sponsoring cat adoption events along the east coast.
“At Scotties our focus is softness – so this partnership made perfect sense,” said John Robertson, Director of Marketing for Scotties Facial Tissues. “We hope that our donation will act as an incentive for caring people to come forward and open up their homes.” Scotties Facial Tissue is known for being soft – like their two new “mascots” – white fluffy kittens. Now through August Scotties Facial Tissue will work with rescue organizations in Boston, MA, Raleigh, NC, and Tampa, FL in order to waive adoption fees for prospective cat owners in an effort to place them in loving homes.
I absolutely love this cause, and support Scotties 100% in helping more furbabies find a loving home like our three. To say that these three have brought so much joy in to our lives is an understatement – they honestly completed our family. Every day we know they are grateful by their purrs, snuggles, and head boops, and we laugh all the time at their silly antics – whether it is Stella jumping in to every box she can find, or Athena going face down in an unattended glass, or Sumo who sleeps all.the.time… we just absolutely love that they came in to our lives, and wish every abandoned kitty could find a loving home to spend their days.
