“A Meow Parlour Adoption Story” By Erika H.

IMG_1602“My partner Gordon and I rescued a friendly stray cat off the street about a year ago. He tolerates us calling him Thermilvden (Below, black and white tuxedo, and a name made up over 30 years ago.) As soon as we heard about N.Y. getting a Cat Café we booked an appointment at the Meow Parlour to find a friend for Thermilvden.”

“My partner didn’t get to visit the Meow Parlour at first, so upon a second visit we ended up choosing Julian (Featured photo, and next three photos below,) the star of the Café. After hearing about all of his antics he sounded like the perfect match. We felt guilty taking the best cat, but we knew we’d be giving him an amazing home.”

“We were ready to introduce the boys slowly but it was obvious that through a crack under the door they wanted to meet right away. We opened the door and it was instant bromance. They ran up and down the hallway for hours on end. Julian (we renamed him Morf, short for Anamorphic since we are in the film biz and he has a knack for stretching out pretty flat) has brought instant peace and joy to our home.”

“Our family now feels complete. The boys love to snuggle, clean each other, and wrestle all over the apartment. It turns out that coincidentally the NY Times had done a write up* of the Meow Parlour the day before we decided to take him home. The article ended begging someone to adopt Julian. We saw the article the day after we brought him home!”

Double Your Bunday Fun

lexiandpookieFor this Bunday you get Two-Two-Two Buns In One (Post)! “These are two adorable bunnies I adopted from Bandaids for Bunnies, a fantastic local group (Richmond, B.C.) that helps abandoned and injured rabbits. The brown one is Lexi, who is the boss of her brother Pookie.” -Vivian L.

Toesday II: Meet Land O’ Lakes!

210“My name is Mary T. and I wanted to submit my cat, Land O’ Lakes. She is such a wonderful cat and has such a sweet personality. Land O’ Lakes is adopted and she got her name when she was just a small kitten because she kept unwrapping and eating all of the butter off our counter before we could figure out it was her; to this day she has definitely lived up to her name, food is her favorite pastime by far. She is the best cat I have ever owned!”

Happy Valen-BUNS Day

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day…but TODAY is “Valen-Buns Day.” Geddit? This video was taken at Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter (B.U.N.S.) in Santa Barbara, CA., with music by (obviously) the one and only Parry Gripp.
