Act today to get a free feline! Feline Independence Day!

Hey, I just heard on Channel 7 news that today and Monday are Feline Independence Days at the Humane Society of Sarasota County. Basically, if you ADOPT A KITTY OR CAT TODAY OR MONDAY — YOU GET ALL THE FEES WAIVED COMPLETELY (at least that’s what I think I heard! — visit to learn more. Apparently you have to say the words WHEN FREEDOM PURRS to get the kitty cat completely free — with all adoption fees and neutering and shots, etc., included — check out the website to make sure I’m right about this.

Look, I know you all probably think I’m a crazy feline-lover (and I am), but truly if you have the space and the money to care for a little cat that needs a good and loving permanent home … I hope you’ll consider taking advantage of this REALLY GOOD DEAL — completely free to adopt a cat — all shots, neutering — that’s a huge deal.

When I adopted Boomerang (he was a street cat), I had to pay for his neutering, all his shots, taking care of worms that he had from living outside, etc. It was hugely expensive. So, I’m just saying — this is a great deal. My other two cats were adopted from shelters too.

Give a feline some real freedom — the freedom to be safe from harm and especially crazy people on July Fourth (some bad stuff happens to cats every year on this day). Give a little kitty the freedom of a safe, secure home and I know he or she will give you lots of love back.

Okay, enough of my exhortations! Oh, if you do go, tell them MC sent you — they won’t know who the heck I am, but I’d appreciate you referring them to my blog site here.

  1. Thank you for helping us spread the word! Yes, it is absolutely true – all adult cats FREE Friday and Monday for all qualified adopters who say “Let Freedom Purr.”

  2. Oh, HSSC — thanks for reading my blog! I’ll bet some kind cat lover out there directed you here so thanks to that person too. And, thanks for clarifying that it is ADULT cats and for QUALIFIED adopters. Adult cats are fabulous. One of my cats was already “adult” when I adopted her and she’s been a wonderful cat. She has accepted two new cats into the home over the past several years. Okay, everyone — if you’re thinking about adopting a feline — now’s the best time!

    Thanks so much for the heads up about HSSC and their adoption program–we’re the proud owners of 13-month-old Ricky, a loving and lovable mixed breed! After losing our previous cat Salem to a pygmy rattler two years ago, I vowed no more pets, but…never say never! My son is in seventh heaven. Thanks again.

  4. John and Patrick! It was my pleasure to pass the good word along about the HSSC. Congratulations on your (almost-new) puppy! But gosh, I’m very sorry about Salem — and to lose her/him to a rattler! Yikes! I’m glad your son is enjoying his new puppy. Wishing you both a great summer! Thanks for reading and for dropping a note here! MC

    Should’ve been more species-specific; Ricky’s a cat, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

  6. oh, so much the better! a kitty has a home!
