And Meow, 2, 3, 4!

Happy June!! And why is it happy, you ask? June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month! To celebrate, Orange County Animals Services, which is right across the street from my SPCA, is having a BOGO event! YES, TWO for ONE!! And while you're there, you can check out their new cat adoption area.

Speaking of, June is also the SPCA's Meow March, and you all are invited! This is a Virtual Cat Walk to raise money for renovations to our cat adoption area. All you have to do is sign up and spread the word! There are several ways to join the Meow March. I have a personal fundraising page for donations, or you can join us through our Facebook Cause and help spread the word (you can also donate there). Let's get our March on this June and get my shelter kitties a sweet new pad!

And that's not all! June is also Leon's gotcha month!! Last June was pretty bad for me - my apartment was burglarized, and some very sentimental things were stolen. But if that hadn't happened, I wouldn't have been moving out early, and I wouldn't have been sitting on my porch waiting for the movers, and I wouldn't have seen him wandering the parking lot. The whole story is here if you're interested. In short, Leon is my destiny kitty.

Leon stayed with my parents most of the past year because of my temporary living situation and then the game of musical cats we played. He was a pretty sick puppy too and needed a safe place to heal. The vet said he would have died if I hadn't found him. And he needed a little socializing, especially with dogs. But he's finally back with me, completely healthy and at least twice the weight he was when I found him, *ahem* mom... So we're on a low carb diet and running up and down the stairs often. He and the dogs are still a little wary of one another, but it's going well. I woke up this morning to someone cuddling my leg, and guess who it was. He is so gorgeous and sweet. To think someone could neglect him like that. Give your kitties an extra kiss this June 24, and happy gotcha day Leon!!

P.S. Now that I'm on Facebook and am reaching a larger local audience, I have motivation to post more. I've added you if I could find you, but if you're on Facebook, add me!
