Today is Ginger Cat Appreciation Day and we have loved and appreciated all of our ginger cats, starting with Tigger who we adopted in 2005.
After Tigger we adopted Chris in 2009 and you all know how that turned out.
2014 brought us Frankie who is both affectionate and naughty, like Chris only maybe not quite at Chris’s level.
I don’t think there is a need for Ginger Cat Appreciation Day since, I am sure, all of you with ginger cats already appreciate them.
Happy Ginger Day Tigger and to ginger kitties everywhere!
You were playing Monopoly with Tigger, who won?
Tigger is tough to beat.
What handsome gingers!
They all are. 🙂
YAY FOR GINGERS!!!!!!! The bigger the better (haha).
We love gingers! If there’s a day about cats in any way, we’ll celebrate!
I hope one day I will have a ginger cat as darling as yours!
I’m sure Cody wouldn’t mind another cat. 🙂
Happy Ginger Cat Appreciation Day! I do agree. We sure appreciate our Prancie.
Thanks. Prancie is sure worth appreciating. 🙂
I think I count as a ginger… don’t I?
You’re right. You are a ginger.
Ginger’s are beautiful and so many almost human-like faces, like your Tigger. Thank you for sharing!
Yes they are. Thanks.
Like all cats, they’re very special in their own way too. Gingers are definitely beautiful cats.
If I ever get rich and if I can afford a large villa, I’ll get them all… Tuxedos, Tabbys, Gingers, Calicos and so on 😀
I hope you get rich. 🙂
Honestly, I’d build a huge animal shelter with an outdoor enclosure near my villa. Here locally the animal shelters look pretty desolate. Not only would it help animals, it would also keep me busy. I think even if we get rich, we still need something we strive for… it’s just that we would have much more possibilities to develop or follow our own ideas. I think I really would go all-in with animal welfare. 😀 Two weeks ago we had 90 million in the lottery jackpot and that would have been enough to do things like that… I thought I buy a ticket but didn’t win. So…
A few years ago I thought about starting my own animal welfare non profit organization. I almost did too. I filled out the paperwork but then realized the cost was more than expected. I have enough money now but no longer live close to the people I wanted to work with.
Yeah, I think it’s not working without donations. I saw a blogpost last month of an animal shelter in Paderborn and thought the post was interesting. They speak about 35.000,00 € of monthly costs or 420.000,00 € each year. That’s insane. They make losses but they get 1/3 of their money from bills paid by the city Paderborn, and the other 2/3 are commissions when pets are sold and donations or membership fees. Some other interesting facts are that they need 2400 kg of cat litter each month and 2120 kg animal food. The food donations they receive are not enough, they still need to purchase extra food.
Yes, it is very costly. My idea was to start small and try to help people that are taking care of strays but can’t afford to get them fixed.
I understand. I think they all started small. There is probably no other way without heavy support. But even small actions are good and helpful.
Maybe someday I will try again. I applied to be a volunteer at a local animal shelter a few weeks ago but they never called me.
Oh, we did and miss our ginger man dearly.
I’m sorry. We do miss our Tigger too.
That is a great picture of Tigger.
I like that too. I made it into a meme here http://justfurlaughs.com/your-move/
I like that. Perfect for the look. 🙂
