Say hi to The Floof That Is Gustave. (He’s a ResQte, too- YAY! And do we detect just the sliiiiightest hint of a Baroo?) (Reddit.)
“We fell in love with Kirby at the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue. The woman in charge of adoptions asked us to consider also adopting his pal Cemi because they were inseparable. So glad we did. They do everything together, including this awesome paw de deux! Cemi is on the left. My niece named her Cemi because she was very skittish when we first got her and she reminded her of the cat in the movie Pet Cemetery. Kirby is the handsome fella on the right.” -Maureen K.
Cathy O. writes, “This is Jud, a 5 week old kitten at Save The Animals Foundation in Cincinnati. We think he’s got some adorable toesies, deserving of an appearance on Toesday!” We TOE-tally agree.
We asked Cathy about J’s availability, and she responded, “When he’s big enough to neuter & had his shots, but I understand one of our volunteers may adopt him when he’s ready.”
It most certainly is! So..the no-kill shelter Homeward Bound (great name) of Decatur, IL. recently partnered with yoga studio Yoga at Connie’s. (The yoga “Up Dog” move probably won’t fly at this yoga studio.)
It was a way to introduce kittehs that need homes, to peeps who might not otherwise consider a shelter.
Six kittehs hung out during the session, one was adopted, and over $500 was raised for the shelter.
We contacted the studio to see if there will be another event- we’ll let you know if so!
[*Note- could also be ‘Her Drink On.’ FYI. -Ed.]
This Manatee Mini-Blorp was orphaned :( so he/she was taken to a rescue facility in Peru. Kudos to these fellows for helping out!

It most certainly is~ check this link for some details on adopting a shelter furrball! Oh and BTW: this just in from Harvie Ruth S. of The Cat House On The Kings: “This ridiculously cute kitten is named Triscuit ~ and she’s currently enjoying life in foster care. She should be adoptable from CHOTK in a week or so. (Did you notice her belly spots and those squishy jellybean toesies?)”
Bay Area Peeps! The San Francisco SPCA invites you to the inaugural Dogs on the Catwalk cocktail party and fashion show. The festivities take place in one week! Friday, May 29th, 5pm ’til 10pm at their Mission Campus (201 Alabama Street.) Krista M. says “These parties help bring people to the shelter who might not otherwise visit. Every time we host an event like this, countless homeless animals find new loving families. Adoption fees will be waived that night at both our Mission and Pacific Heights Adoption Centers! The free adoptions will continue on Saturday and Sunday, May 30th and 31st.”
[*Note: The party is free- but RSVP is required. -Ed.]
