It is #nationalhugyourcat day but most cats do not like hugs, so when it comes to showing your cats love, think outside the hug.

New Petco Love Lost National Facial Recognition Software Launched Hopes To Bring Lost Pets Home Quicker

“The American Humane Association estimates that 1 out of 3 pets become lost at some point in their lifetime and close to 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the US every single year and according to the Coalition for Reuniting Pets and Families, less than 23% of lost pets in the U.S. are reunited with their owners.”

Luna is really enjoying her pets! 😻😋

Okay, okay! We know that today is really all about celebrating our beloved, non-human family members. But...one way to do that is by giving your pet some pets! Or if they don’t like to be touched, maybe give them a favorite treat, a new toy, or even just some slow blinks to let them know you care 💕🎉

I’ve known for a long time that the cat community has a problem with anti-Asian rhetoric. I’ve seen very hurtful & incorrect generalizations made about people I love. I’ve seen people make cruel jokes to friends that make them feel unwelcome. I’ve read sweeping generalizations of entire cultures when I travel internationally. Anti-Asian sentiment in the cat community is a real problem and is not new.

But yesterday, after I shared a lovely article featuring my talented and impactful friend Christina being brave and vulnerable, opening up about her experiences with anti-Asian bullying in the cat community, the responses I got on the article shook me to my core. And it isn’t because one or two people said something overtly racist. It’s because so, so many people said things that were completely and utterly dismissive, denying the pain of my friend, denying that any of this is a problem at all.

Why has it become so acceptable to outright dismiss the experiences of others?

When someone opens up to you about trauma, even if (and especially if) it is something you have not experienced, or will never experience, it’s an opportunity for you to listen. Listening is free. It is the least anyone can do. When we listen to others, we become a more connected and empathetic community, one that is welcoming and warm. In a community supposedly founded on principles of compassion for all, I find it really disturbing how quickly some people are prepared to shut down the voices of some, as if it benefits anyone to invest in the lie that racism doesn’t touch this community. It benefits no one. Not the cats, not the people.

If you don’t believe racism touches this community, that is probably because it doesn’t touch you. But just because it doesn’t touch you doesn’t mean it doesn’t touch people you care about (or ought to care about.) The only way to truly understand is to listen. So please, when someone is sharing their experience, just...listen.

Did you know that cuteness is actually an evolutionary adaptation in baby animals? Baby animals like kittens, puppies, and even human babies have evolved to possess certain features that trigger a caregiving response in adults. Our brains are hard-wired to want to nurture those who we perceive as “cute!”

The features associated with cuteness actually have a scientific name: kindchenschema. These qualities include a large head, round face, big eyes, and small mouth. When we see someone with these features, our orbitofrontal cortex activates within milliseconds, which we experience as a pleasurable emotion. Cuteness can totally hijack our attention and motivate us to turn our focus towards our nurturing instincts.

Mister Peep possesses the traits of the kindchenschema fully—so it’s no wonder he is so good at capturing my attention and getting whatever he wants from me. That’s just science!

We knew Frampton was special from the moment we first met him. He arrived at the shelter, curious, with his nose pressed to the front of his carrier. He leapt fearlessly into his kennel and greeted us with the cutest little meow. We were excited for Frampton to become available for adoption, we knew he would be a favorite and could not wait for him to find a home!

Unfortunately, we received some bad news after Frampton’s vet exam. He has both leukemia and lymphoma, and the test results do not look good. You would never guess that he is ill. He plays and pounces, gobbles up treats and rolls in catnip too! He loves people and desperately wants attention and love from anyone who walks by. Frampton might not have a long time left, but we know he deserves a loving home, for however long his life might be. Adopting a hospice pet might be heartbreaking but it gives you a chance to heal the heart of an animal at the time that they need you the most.

We know the holidays are almost here and people are busy. We know times are unusual, stressful and scary. But we also know that somewhere there is a perfect home for Frampton where he can live out his days surrounded by love and care.

Are you the holiday miracle Frampton needs? We are open for adoptions Tuesday - Sunday, 11:30-5pm.

Who is shooting cats? Loudoun, we need your help. Since April, we have had TEN cases of cats being shot, likely by several different individuals, many with pellet guns. Five of these cats were not able to survive their catastrophic injuries, including Sweetie, whose x-ray seen here, shows devastating injuries caused by a pellet gun prior to being humanely euthanized due to the severity of his condition. We have consulted with and utilized the services of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office as well as a K9 officer with the Department of Wildlife Resources to find the perpetrators of these felonies and a $3000 reward is being offered to help solve these cases.

If your children have pellet guns, please talk to them about responsible gun usage. It is an act of animal cruelty to shoot a cat and a felony for anyone (even a minor) to inflict serious bodily injury to a cat, which was the case in all ten of these shootings. We know most kids love their pets, and may not realize that “target practice” on outdoor cats is legally and ethically different than organized hunting. All cats in the state of Virginia are considered companion animals, and the majority of these cats have been beloved family pets who have suffered from debilitating or life-ending injuries.

If you have seen or heard of anyone shooting cats, please call us (703-777-0406) - you may remain anonymous. Animal cruelty is frequently an escalating act, with strong statistical links to violent crimes against both children and adults. We need to find this person or people and keep our community safe. With most of these acts occurring in eastern Loudoun, where the population and residences are dense, every discharge of a firearm or pellet gun carries risk.

Our Humane Law Enforcement team is taking this investigation very seriously, but we need your help. We cannot continue to have cats dying slow, painful, preventable deaths. We are here to provide resources to those who struggle with concerns over free-roaming cats, but to needlessly inflict devastating injuries is not only heartbreaking and worrisome for our local families, it is also a felony, carrying potential jail time. Friends of Loudoun County Animal Services is now offering a $3,000 reward for tips leading to the arrest of the person responsible for one or more of these cat shootings. We can be reached at 703-777-0406 and messages can be left after hours.

This case is keeping us all up at night, and we will not rest until justice has been served for all these cats and their heartbroken families. Today, we ask for your help, in honor of Binx, Hope, Prissy, Chiron and Lillabet and in memory of: The Lovettsville three, Lacey and Sweetie. Please share on social media, talk to your families, talk to your friends and HOAs, and help us solve this case.

Who here remembers the early 90s toy “Kitty Surprise”? 🐱🎀 The idea was that you would buy this (inexplicably florescent pink) mama cat, and she would be filled with some mystery amount of kittens. I BEGGED my mom for a Kitty Surprise and still remember how exciting it was to get one! I can still hear the song from the commercial:

🎶 “Surprise, surprise, kitty surprise—how many kitties are there inside?” 🎶

Looking back, this is actually a hilariously horrifying product on many levels. Why is the mama cat fluffy everywhere except her face? Severe flea allergy? Mange? Ringworm? Let’s get this girl under a blacklight ASAP! Why do her babies have neon purple eyes—are they feeling okay?! Don’t get me started on their unnatural coat color (nothing says “only girls are supposed to be interested in caregiving and animals” like hot pink fur!)

But of course the worst thing about Kitty Surprise is looking back and knowing that it was popular during a decade when the vast majority of cats entering shelters were dying there—due to lack of spay/neuter access, public education, and cat-focused programming. Kitty Surprise was a nightmarish effigy made of neon plastic & polyester, targeting my impressionable young mind with the problematic message that nothing could be cuter than adding more kittens to the population!

Why do I bring this up? Because this morning I walked into the nursery and saw the kittens piled up on Mt. Mama and had this instant flashback to the Kitty Surprise commercial! I was thinking—someone should make an updated Kitty Surprise, except it’s an eartipped feral cat who hates your guts, and the only surprise is that she hisses at you when you’re least expecting it.

🎶 “Surprise, surprise, Kitty Surprise! Look at my kitties, and you will die!” 🎶
