|A Word With Whiskers – May 05
Happy Cinco de MEOW!
This blog will coincide with one of my favorite cultural events, Cinco de MEOW.
It’s a day devoted to celebrating feline culture, rather like every other day of the year, but with the addition of fish tacos.
To be clear, it’s not just a day about cats. It’s a day about cats and couches.
Most people do not understand the important history of this day. Cinco de MEOW commemorates the anniversary of the first day a cat and a couch were brought together, in ancient Egypt. Cats have never forgotten this, and instinct calls kitties around the world to observe this judicious pairing of cats and furniture with a holiday nap.
Cinco de MEOW is a time for carousing on the couch.
I will be napping in my usual place all morning, and then living it up with an exciting afternoon on the other end of the sofa. I expect the stroll from one end to the other to be a special highlight of the day. You will want to be sure your couch is ready for the fiesta!
As a human, it’s important that you support your cat to have the best possible Cinco de MEOW.
Fluff the pillows
Wait on your kitty
Prepare special foods
People like to add a Mexican flair to Cinco de MEOW, which is fine with cats, as long as you make sure to add tuna to everything.
Happy Cinco de MEOW. Party on, cats!
Okay, on a more serious note… This Cinco de Mayo, Humane Societies across the nation will be throwing fiestas. Kitten season is the perfect time for this new event, Cinco de MEOW. Cinco de MEOW promotions at Humane Societies are basically a good way to promote adoptable cats and let people know that they have a lot of them who need homes this spring.
Although kittens can be cute and cuddly, it’s important to not forget that adult cats need a family too. They’re a lot easier, because you don’t have to go through all the kitten phases and you can bond just as well with them.
Some cat lovers say that when it comes to getting a pet, cats do not get the consideration they deserve. Operations Coordinator Denise Plemmons says, “I don’t think a lot of people realize what a good friend they [cats] can be and good support through hard times. They are a part of your family, becoming companions you can lean on if you need to.”
Because dogs gave higher adoption rates, the theme for Cinco de MEOW is helping cats overcome odds. This Cinco de MEOW, Humane Societies are striving to adopt as many cats as possible. It takes only one person to make a difference. Every adoption is marked as a success!
