Happy Caturday, Everypawdy!
Well, not quite Caturday! But our guest today has an auction that ends tomorrow, March 7th, so I wanted to share our stimulating chat today so you can get a chance to bid if you like!
Hazel: Hi Poptart! What inspired that cute name of yours?
Poptart: Oh the little humans in the house! At first my name was J. Lo when I was at the shelter and that was changed very fast mol.
Hazel: Mol!! J. Lo is an excellent name for a kitty. How did you find your forever home?
Poptart: My people really wanted a kitty to help one of the little humans cope with the loss of Mama who went to the Rainbow Bridge. She would sleep with the little boy human and he was so very sad so they saw me and I just insisted they pick me and for the longest time I slept wif him and helped him heal from his sadness.
Hazel: Aww, that’s so sweet, I did a lot of healing for my humans too. What’s a funny cat thing you do?
Poptart: I used to play hockey with my mousie toys but now I think my funny is how I run down the hall when mommy gets ready to feed me my special food and I meow and run at the same time and it sounds like me ow ow ow ow ow and then before she puts the food down I meow and roll back and forth on my back till she is done putting it down for me!
Hazel: Haha you’re an athletic kitty! You’re also in Dancing with the Stars, Kittyland Edition! What kind of dance do you like?
Poptart: I like to dance to all sorts of music actually! But our last song, “A Thousand Years,” by Christina Perri, was chosen because of my love for Bob and I thought it was just the purrfect song for us!
Hazel: Which charity are you dancing for?
Poptart: The charity is Forgotten Felines of Maine and their mission is this:
Forgotten Felines of Maine is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to:
- Educating the public about free-roaming cats by providing literature and advice on caring for feral, stray, homeless and abandoned cats.
- Assisting in humanely reducing cat overpopulation with Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) programs.
- Providing access to spay/neuter services and helping to place adoptable cats in loving homes.
Hazel: You also have an auction going on right meow, which ends March 7th. Can you tell me more about that?
Poptart: The auction page is for all paws in need, not just kitties, and it is to help with medical bills. We have a private account that is specific for the auctions. I have lots going on this time. This auction is for ME this time to help defray the cost of my bills because I had to have all my teeth removed due to my stomatitis. We have custom painted glasses from Chunkie Crafts and a blanket from Prince Pan Pan and one from Mothwing and kitty toys from Hallman Crafts I really do not want to leave anyone out. Mew can visit the page it is called Poptart Power of the Paw Auctions for those in need.
Hazel: What advice do you have for bright young kitties hoping to make a difference?
Poptart: Please be kind to one another first and foremost! Also if you think there is something wrong, please check it out right away! Also my rule of thumb is this Every Paw Matters!
Hazel: If you could say only one thing to a potential new or existing friend, what would you like them to know?
Poptart: I am an equal opportunity kitty! Ebbery animal or eben humans can come to my page! I am a Happy Kitty just trying to spread the love and also help out any way that I can.
Hazel: Thanks Poptart!
And thank YOU readers for reading!
