I eat, sleep, and breathe all things dog, yet here I am writing about all things cat. Why? BlogPaws likes cats… a lot!
It’s Adopt a Cat Month, and BlogPaws is celebrating. That sounds like so much fun, right? I mean, balloons, cat-themed hats, cakes with funny felines decorated across the frosting, and even kitty balloons.
Um, no: But that sounds like a boatload of fun.
At our core, BlogPaws is and always will be by, for, and about animals and their parents/owners/caretakers/families. The voice of the pet blogger is a strong one, and yet we have only begun to scratch the surface of the pet blogging world. This is where cat parents come in.
This is YOUR month. However, all year long BlogPaws has cat-themed and cat-oriented programs, posts, community chats, themed months, photo contests, and movements going on. For anyone who thinks BlogPaws does not cater to the kitties, I personally beg to differ.
So what exactly do we do FOR feline moms and dads? Consider this the next time someone asks (or you ponder), “Just what in the heck does BlogPaws do for us cat people?” And if you didn’t know about these, go do them, engage in them, share them, light a flare in their honor. Whatever the case, celebrate and engage: Behold the power of the cat!
June is Adopt-a-Cat month, celebrated by many organizations including BlogPaws. It’s a good time to talk not only about visiting your local shelter and adding a cat (or two) to your family, but also about everything else cat. During the month of June we invite you to link up your posts about adoption, nutrition, adult cats, kittens, volunteering, cat facts, or anything else cat related that you would like to share. Click here for the hop. If you want to be seen and heard, a blog hop is the perfect way to connect for claw’s sake!
Adopt A Cat Month
The entire month of June is dedicated to the notion of loving cats and adopting cats. Cat lovers, rejoice: This is an extra special month to meow it out and educate, inform, break a stereotype, make your mark, and do so in the company of like-minded cat parents.

BlogPaws is celebrating Adopt a Cat month throughout June! Just for entering the photo contest, you might win a $25 value prize from Pet360. Have we seen your entry? Enter the photo contest here.
