Whew, it has sure been busy around the Cat Blogosphere, it seems like things are really hopping.  I want to take just a few minutes to get you caught up on some things that are going on…just in case you missed them.

WAD_logo690KBDid you know that today was World Animal Day???  I did not know that until yesterday when my friend over at The Fantail mentioned it.   World Animal Day was started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. Since then it has grown to encompass all kinds of animal life and is widely celebrated in countries throughout the world. October 4 was chosen as World Animal Day as it is the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

It is intended as a day of celebration for anyone in the world who cares about animals. It is not restricted to any one nationality, creed, religion, political belief or ideology.

You can read all about it at: WorldAnimalDay.org

monday_minuteMy friends over at Two Little Cavaliers are starting a new event called the Monday minute.  Although I’m not participating today, you might want to check it out, it sounds pretty cool.  It centers on a weekly question with a maximum of 1 minute video response from the human assistants.  Do go check it out, it has lots of potential and could be very interesting.

cao218 My friend Kika at Kika e as suas Ideias as me to remind everyone that colder weather is coming.  Please donate blankets, beds, bowls, foods and medicines to the shelter animals so that they may keep warm and well during the winter months.

AWARDS

As usual, I’ve gotten way behind in acknowledging and saying thanks to some very special friends for some awards, so her is my attempt to do just that.

doggiebloggieawardThanks to Sage at The (Mis)Adventures of Sage for this very nice award.  My sister Dolly had received it and I am excited to receive it too! 

happy-cat-award-mayMy cute friend Elin from Cute Cat Elin was so nice to share her Happy Cat Award with me.  Thank you sweet Elin!

happy101My pal Socks, over at my sweetie Scylla’s place Alasandra, the Cats and a Dog shared his Mancat Monday award with me.  Thanks Socks!

Versatle Blog Award My friend Max, an incredible mystery writer and all around good guy, from Max the Quilt Cat shared his Versatile Blogger Award with me.  Although Max is a mystery writer, it’s no mystery why he is so popular!

There, I think I’m caught up, but I’m not overly sure, so if I missed one I’m very sorry.  Now I think it’s nap time.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
