Hello everyone and welcome to Corbin’s Blogville Pitty Post Day. If you don’t know my pal Corbin, please stop by and visit him, he is one cool dude. Today is also Corbin’s Birthday. Happy Birthday pal! Here’s a picture of me and my pal Corbin…
Corbin is trying to help Pit Bulls everyone overcome the stereotype and bad rap that Pit Bulls seem to get.
We felines should be able to relate to that, after all, look at the bad rap that black cats get for no good reason. Pit Bulls are the same way, one bad apple every once in a while messes up the whole apple cart for everyone else. Seriously now! What if they did that with humans, there wouldn’t be many humans left to take care of us now would there? Please take some time to educate yourself about this and all wonderful breeds. And please join us all as we try to stamp out breed discrimination at all levels.
Now then, let me introduce you to a sweet girl in search of her forever home:
Here is what Beautiful Babe’s Petfinder page has to say about her:
Babe is a remarkable girl! This happy, affectionate, well behaved girl that is truly impossible not to love. Babe has one of the best dispositions ever!
Babe has one of the kindest hearts we’ve ever met. She adores everyone, including dogs, cats and humans alike. She is a very gentle girl and will softly lay her paw on your arm to let you know she loves you. She is a snuggler and gives you very soft kisses to tell you that you’re wonderful in her eyes. Babe always wants to make sure that you know you’re loved, whether your a human, dog or cat. She thinks everyone needs to feel assured that they’re special.
Beautiful Babe is waiting at: k9.5 Rescue, in Greenville, SC.
Today is also Hug Your Cat Day…you know what to do!
Remember, adopt Pit Bulls, they deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
Hopefully mum will remember to give me a hug later on, but this morning I went straight outdoors mousing – no time for humans.
We’re celebrating Corbin’s Birthday today also….stop by if you get a chance. And see just how ‘pitty’ful life can be as Hootin’ Anni’s furbabies.
We also think this is a great thing to do to post about the Pitties. They are terrific dogs and just like you said Brian, they just get a bad name from all the BAD media that they get. Brian, that is so nice of you to help Corbin to get the message out. Have yourselves one terrific day.
Pit bulls definately deserve the loving… my friend has one and he is the sweetest dog ever!
We thing pit bulls are cool! They do get a bad rap…but it’s the humans’ fault! Happy Birthday to Corbin!
Good Meowning Brian and Sisters! I got lots of kisses and snuggles this morning. I bet you all did too. xoxoxox
When will people realize that it’s not the breed but the way they are brought up? You can’t just label a dog vicious just based on it’s breed. It’s silly.
I hear bad news about Pit Bulls, but I see many sweet Pitties as well. I think with proper training and love by their family, any Pitties can be that way. Happy birthday to your friend Corbin!!
Some of the owners of Pit Bulls encourage the dogs to be aggressive – it’s their owners that need to be tied up.

Great post with lots going on. First I would like to say that I think every day should be hug your kittie! Love your friend, will head over to meet him and leave birthday wishes. And the pitt bull day I say it isn’t the doggies it is the humans that don’t train them. Hopefully most pitt bulls are nice. There owners sure get on Judge Judy a lot, poor fellows.
Yes, stereotypes are wrong for beast and man! You can never paint efurryone with one brush, though many folks will try.
Maybe they should change the name of the breed from “pit bull” to something less aggressive sounding. That might be a good start.
And yes, I’m giving extra hugs to my three today. Of course, they get hugged every day whether they like it or not!
Hugs to you, Brian and all your sisters — Gracie, Sascha, Dolly, Zoey and Precious!
When our Mom was young (about eleventy-zillion years ago) it was Dobermans, then Rotties and other breeds in between that got a bad rap. We wish there were better owners. We get lots of hugs from our Mom and wish all cats could be loved like we are. There are so, so many that never feel the gentle touch of a human. Mom stays on a spay/neuter kick, asking people that are giving kittens away to have the mom cat spayed. Sometimes people don’t want to hear that, but she mentions it in a nice way, hoping they will consider… Read more »
We are getting lots of hugs, but since Mommy is crying our furs are getting wet. I do wish Arty would come home so Mommy would smile again.
I am so excited about Gracie’s engagement, we will be at her party with Alex, we just sent the RSVP email to Alex.
Going by to visit Corbin now. Babe sounds terrific, I sure hope she finds a wonderful home. ~Your, Scylla
I so hate being hugged. Can’t it just be national sit down for your cat so they can sit on you day?
Thanks, Brian for the info on breed discrimination….it helps to educate people that each animal be it kitty or woofie is valuable & deserves to be loved.
What a Most Wonderful postie, Brian! Our paws are crossed that Beautiful Babe finds her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was real, real soon!
Sending you hugs and brindle kisses!
Wiggles & Wags,
Happy Birthday Corbin! Hope you’re having a super-duper great day! purrs
What a wonderful postie Brian! You said da magic word…educate! Peoples needs to educate themselves and understand mores bouts breeds and animals furs dat fact.
Da little girl is sooo purties. I hopes her finds her perfect furever home soon.

It’s not pitbulls that are the problem, it’s people who raise them badly! I bet more people are bit by yappy little dogs like high strung chihuahuas (not that I’m trying to give them a bad name either!).
Great post. Happy birthday to your friend. We had the sweetest pitty living 3 doors down on our floor. My peeps loved her and was sorry when they moved. I guess we should all remember Lennox on this day who’s still imprisoned in Belfast just for being a pitty. What a pity.
I’m so loving all of the adoptable pitties that have been shared on blogs today! Thank you so much for joining in, I’m so glad kitties are supporting pitties too! I LOVE that picture of me and you!
We love pit bulls. It’s not their fault they have a bad rap but due to ignorant owners.
Happy birthday Corbin.
Brian you are right, pit bulls do suffer the same stigma that black cats do.
That is not right.
WE hope that changes for all.
Babe is beautiful and my paws are crossed she finds a home soon! What a sweetheart! You are absolutely right about black cats – Rosie has lots to say on that topic
Your pal, Pip
Great post Brian!!! We purr Babe finds a good home too 🙂
We also wish Corbin a Happy Birthday!
Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
Tiger,Treasure and JJ
Happy birthday to Corbin!
Thanks for this post, Brian! We have lots of pit bull pals … they’re super sweet, andwe love them.
Paws and fingers crossed for Beautiful Babe to find a forever home real soon.
You look like an itty bitty kitty beside that big pup ~ cute!
HUG day?? ::shudder:: I’ll be hiding!
I wish a good home for efurry kitteh and doggeh! XOXOXO
My sister has the sweetest pit bull ever. Her name is Skittles. It’s all in how they are raised.
Brian, that is the coolest picture of you and Corbin – I love it! I agree with you, this whole thing makes no sense, and the humans have to start getting some wits about them.
Beautiful Babe surely deserves a wonderful, loving forever home…and that’s what I’m wishing for her, right now!
Um, yeah. About the hug your cat thing – Mom did a bunch of that today, but I hope you’ll cut me some slack and count my play time with them.
Keep rockin’ it, Brian!
I am proud to say that my former shelter run by Contra Costa Humane Society, private non profit…not the public shelter…is one of the few private no kill shelters that routinely pulls pit bulls from our county shelter and we put them into foster care til they get their furrever homes! Nuff said about that! harummppfff
I will never understand why humans make such snap decisions based on the looks or color or gossip about creatures. Lots of wonderful loving dogs are overlooked when pitties are judged so unfairly.
Thanks for your ongoing purrs of positive energy to my sister, Puff. We truly believe that your love and support is helping her recover.
You are so right about Pit Bulls being judged unfairly and getting a bad rap. Any dog can be a wonderful dog or a menace, depending on how they are raised. I hope that wonderful Babe finds her forever home very soon. Herman and Spyro hate being hugged, but I hugged Oja enough for all of them.
We missed Pitty Day and Hug your Cat Day all because mum has been so wrapped up with watching the Jubilee celebrations. We were lucky she even helped us post!
Some of the nicest family dogs I’ve know were Pit Bulls. They need to start dealing with the bad owners…
