Wow! Was I surprised today to get an email from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) letting me know that my cat, Culvey, was being featured on their website. I had submitted his photo and a brief “bio” about him to the HSUS “Pet of the Week” contest they administer. Every week a pet that has been rescued in some way or adopted from a shelter is featured in their email newsletter.
This article for December is called Home for the Holidays. (Click on the link to go to that page.) There’s a photo slideshow you can scroll through to view the pets whose corresponding stories appear on the page. Culvey is the second photo–and a very handsome fellow he is too, if I do say so myself.
Please consider adopting your next pet from a shelter and, as always, please spay or neuter your pets. Help prevent pet overpopulation, which always leads to the tragedy of euthanasia for unwanted animals.
Culvey says “Thank you!”
