I am thankful beyond words for the world of Social Media. Well, maybe I do have a few words, but you’ve probably figured that out. Often times, as a kitty dedicated to animal rescue, I run into some who wonders if Social Media can have an actually impact in the rescue world. I am here to tell you that it can have a very positive impact.
First let me say that I am so very thankful for all of my friends. With 10,199 folllowers on Twitter, 2,125 Facebook friends, and over 500 followers of our blog, there is indeed power in numbers. When I post about a critter that needs help there are hundreds and hundreds of you that share that information. Are we always successful? No, of course not. But we’ve been successful enough to make a difference. When I first started my rescue journey I tried my best to keep track of the number of critters we’ve helped. But honestly, it was just too much and often difficult to keep track of, so I quit counting when the number topped 200. Now, instead, I just try to take it one critter at a time. Thanks to those that describe to my newsletter and follow those stories on my rescue blog ForeverHomeWanted.com. I hand select stories and content dealing with rescue in the hopes that it may just give someone else an idea to help the rescues they are involved with.
Many of you asked about the recent posting I did on the pregnant kitty with limited time since the business that was taking care of her was closing at the end of this week. As it turns out, she may not be pregnant. I am not certain of that, but she has been taken to a vet and she didn’t feel any babies. It may be a case of worms. She is getting treatment and although the immediacy has passed, she will still need a home. She is being cared for by the wonderful Vet that took such good care of Sister Dolly before she came to live with us.
So you see, Social Media does work. You work with us and we shall be forever thankful for you. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
