Mancat Monday: An Instagram Funny and Helping Bootsie

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

Hello everyone! I hope y’all have a fantastic weekend and are ready for the start of a new week.  Actually, we had a pretty good weekend in that it was uneventful.  As most of you know, uneventful is darn good at our place.

I’ve got to tell you something silly though.  I know a lot of my pals are on Instagram and we’ve thought about it for the longest time.  We weren’t sure we needed another social media thingy.  Anyways, over the weekend I had Dad go to Instagram and sign up. That’s when we made the discovery, we are already on Instagram and apparently we’ve been there for a long while, likely from when it first started.  There were also lots of our friends there who were already following me.  Sorry gang, you must think I was being mighty rude not following you back, but we didn’t remember signing up.  So, we’re there and we’re posting some, and I think I’ve followed back those of you who have followed me.  Sorry about that y’all.

Now that the silly is over, it’s time for something serious.  We’re trying our best to help out a local kitty who really needs some surgery.

Help Bootsie
This is Bootsie and he needs ear surgery that is pretty expensive. You can read about Bootsie and see more photos of him on his fundraising page HERE.  Poor Bootsie was abandoned, much like my Sister Kit, so we can relate to his plight.  So if you would share his fundraising page we sure would appreciate it.  We’ve gotta help this poor sweet boy.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We aren’t on Instagram…at least there is no real reason why we should be, since we never joined. anyway, I barely have time to manage the Flickr account and a few other things! 🙂

Poor Bootsie…hope he gets what he needs.

We’re not on Instagram (we think, anyway). #1 was pondering the question the other day and decided she didn’t need that right now.

We are crossing our paws for Booties. We contributed a little something.

My mom is with you uneventful days are good days (hey she even got some feline wisdom huh?). I’m so sorry for Bootsie it’s so sad to be alone when you are in need… I hope so much that there is help and the surgery is possible…

Oh we are on IG too Brian. Mom takes so many photos that it only made sense for her. It’s too bad that you can only upload photos from a mobile device, we under the concept but we so wish they would relent and allow computer access to IG. I know you can access IG from a computer but not upload photos. *sigh* We hope that changes.

We’ll find you on IG. We don’t have an account per se, but our human does and she posts photos of us so in essence it’s ours too.

Hope the kitty gets the much needed surgery.

Not bad over 300 followers on an account you didn’t know you had! I just followed you. We like Instagram a lot and link it with our twitter account. See you around the internet!

Our little bipeds are on Instagram, but Mom says she has enough to keep up with electronically as it is. We are going to work on her. Poor Bootsie, we will keep our paws crossed for him and see if we can find some green papers for him too.

Poor Bootsie. Hope he can get his ear surgery! Sounds painful.

We’re crossing our paws for Bootsie to get that surgery. In the meantime, we are headed to Instagram to follow you right now!

Why do some people have pets and not care for them? Poor Bootsie.

We can’t keep up with all the social media options. Heck, we can barely keep up visiting our furiends’ blogs!

How did you come to know Bootsie? I see his surgery is scheduled for later this month. He’s lucky the new owners of his home are willing to get him the care he needs.

If I ever get Instagram I will follow you. I will do a ROAR on Wednesday for Bootsie and try to donate.

We would never think you were being rude, Brian. We just figured you weren’t active on Instagram. But how nice that you’re giving it a try now. 🙂

We are purring and praying for Bootsie. We hope that his surgery gets paid for very soon.

Oh dear, the social media stuff can get overwhelming sometimes, it’s hard to keep up with everything! We only joined Instagram recently, and still don’t get on there as much as we’d like.
We shared Bootsie’s page on Twitter…we sure hope he gets the help he needs.

We’ll happily spread the word about how to help poor Bootsie. The fundraiser page sort of indicates that he’s still living on the street. What will happen to him once he has had his surgery? Will he have an offer of a home?

I was wondering why there weren’t pictures there when I visited your instagram page a few weeks ago! I’ve just started too (shelter_cats). I saw a picture of a cat on there and realized he was a PAWS graduate – one of my very favorites from several years ago! Being able to see him again was so sweet.
Hope the auction for Bootsie is very successful and the operation goes well.
