Remember Me Thursday...#LightforPets

Today is a most impawtant day. It is the day when we honor the millions of pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home, and shine a light on the millions of healthy pets who are still awaiting adoption.


Animal lovers across the planet will honor these loving babies
 by lighting candles on the exact same day.



I am a rescue kitty. I was blessed that I had an amazing foster mother and was adopted by my Mom at a young age, but things could have been different.

Today I want to acknowledge animals who weren't as lucky as me and pray for those who are still waiting to be adopted. May they all find loving homes.

Join the Remember Me Thursday movement and see how YOU can be involved.

  3. It makes me so sad to think about all the babies who have lost their lives in the shelter. And it makes me sad to see the babies in the shelter, too. Every fur baby deserves a very loving human and forever home! How I wish that all shelters could be no-kill. Maybe someday... We lit a cnadle for all of our friends at Cat Care awaiting homes.

    We are so glad that you have such a loving mommy, Cody! <3

  5. This is such a good idea to light a candle for all those kitties that had to go to the bridge since they couldn't find a home. It is all just too sad.
    Take care.

  13. Cody you and I both were so lucky to be rescued and adopted and I know all of us who have wish the same were true for all the other animals looking for homes. It's sad that so many leave for the Bridge never knowing the kindness of humans or the safety or having a forever home. We've lit a candle.....let's hope a lot of adoptions happen today - all over the world!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  14. Far, far, far too many innocent lives have been lost. It's neither right nor fair. Things must change for the better. They just must.

    Purrs,

  16. We are especially remembering all those differently-abled kitties like our sweet Maxwell who are euthanized in shelters simply because they are deaf or blind or have CH....

  17. Well said, Cody! My human remembered and then forgot to put it in her post!!! What a lame brain!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. We remember. Like Maxwell, Faraday and Allie, we are thinking of all of the cats like our Ashton who weren't "perfect" and were euthanized because for lack of marketability without being given a chance.

  19. xoxo Cody....this is a day we are thankful and a day we have hope for the future where all paws have a home of their own.

  20. I'm so grateful for no kill shelters like PAWS. Our hearts are big but our square footage is never big enough.

  24. Such a beautiful post, Cody & Caren. We're holding those kitties who are fighting for their lives close in our hearts. Oh we wish we could save every single one of them. Our hearts break that we can't.

  26. I had a dream about an orange cat named Mesa. If one turns up it feels destined to take it home. I wish I could give homes to more furballs.

  27. I am so glad that you ended up in a happy, loving home, Cody, and wish it could be that way for all animals. I was out of town this week with limited computer access, so I missed out on this movement, but I think it was a wonderful thing, and I will always pray for all the homeless animals.

  29. Very nice! We light a yearly candle for the lost and homeless animals. It doesn't always seem like it and it is never enough, but collectively our bunches of pet bloggers are making an impact.

  32. Being a shelter cat myself, I've been tweeting about this for a week only to find out that TW didn't have time to help me write a post. Sigh.

  34. Such a bittersweet concept... so sad to think of those that never had the love of a furever home. My heart goes out to them and purrs to all the kitties like you, Cody, who were blessed with such a warm and loving home...
