"This Little Light of Mine"...is Shining for Orphan Pets #RememberMeThursday

Hi every furry and human! It's Cody, and I am here to tell you that 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. Cody and I are proud to have participated in this impawtant day for the past four years.


Remember Me Thursday® is a global awareness campaign that was created by the Helen Woodward Animal Center,  that unites individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world.  The combined influence creates  an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets to live in forever homes and to  not die waiting for them.


I am a rescue kitty

My litter mates and I were blessed to have had an amazing foster mother and I was adopted by my current Mom when I was only 10 weeks old. My Mom adopted me two weeks after her beloved kitty, Bobo, passed, whom she lived with for 18 beautiful years.  Bobo was rescued from the streets when he was about six months old. When Mom adopted me she had a broken heart.

Adopting ME Helped Heal Mom's Broken Heart

Adopting ME helped Mom in many ways. Mom always tells me adopting me was one of the most special days in her life.

I am a Lucky Kitty

 Things could have been different.

I never roamed the streets looking for warmth, water, food or shelter.

I wake up every day to a family who loves me. I have a full belly, sunny perches to sit on, toys to play with, warm beds to snuggle and sleep on. I have regular Veterinary care.

I am loved and I give love

My Mom and Dad love me with all of their heart. I try to repay that every day by showing them my ample belly so that they may rub it. I sit with my Mom every night when she watches TV. I "talk" to my Dad at every meal. My Mom and Dad gave me a home where I am loved, I bring them laughs, love, cuddles and kitty kisses in return.

Today I want to acknowledge animals who weren't as lucky as me and pray for those who are still waiting to be adopted.

The most recent hurricane, (Florence) has  separated pets from their owners, some because their owners can no longer afford to keep them, some because the owners cannot be found, some because the animals were already homeless.  All of these animals DESERVE LOVE, they DESERVE A FOREVER HOME.

It is my deepest hope that  they all find loving homes.


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


Help get the entire world talking about pet adoption!

 Tweet, tag, post and share the beauty and life-saving significance of pet adoption on social media. Let’s honor the lost pets who ran out of time and bring awareness to the pets we can still help by working together and using our voices.

"Let’s take social media by storm for orphan pets!"
I want every kitty and doggy to be 
as lucky and as loved as I am.
Love, Cody

"Every animal deserves love,

Every animal deserves a forever home"

  5. Cody, I'm am so glad you found your forever home and became the light of your family's life.
    We have two rescue cats here - both spent time on the streets before coming to live with us. Every time there's a rain or snow storm, I think of all the animals outside looking for shelter and wondering where they will get their next meal...
    Thank goodness for no kill shelters and all the kind people who support, volunteer, and adopt. Pray that the day will come when they are no longer necessary and every animal has a home.

  16. How precious is your photo with the candle, Cody. You have a wonderful mom and yes you are such a lucky kitty to have not roamed the streets. You and Mr. Jack have that in common.

  23. We agree, adopting cats can heal parts of your heart. God never gave our Female Human 2-legged kids. She says that her four-legged kids help fill the "mother's hole" in her heart. Adopting kitties heals humans and felines!

  28. You, Tyebe and myself were lucky, Cody. Budd wandered the streets for warmth, food and shelter for a long time till you came to our house. He doesn't have to worry where his next meal is coming from now.

  29. We consider ourselves blessed Cody, to have been rescued, to be loved and cared for. Shaking those who abandon by the er..... * cough cough * OooooKkkkk.... Let's not go there but remember that Karma will find those who abandon cats and dogs and work towards getting every animal a home and every pet spayed and neutered.

  30. This made me feel all the more appreciative that mom and dad decided to take me home. It's hard for us older felines to find furrever homes, and I'm just so darned thankful I was able to turn on my southern charm enough to get their attention. We so wish all kitties could be so lucky.

  31. Excellent Post! Cody, I am so happy your Mom go you!
    All but 2 of the before cats Mom had (since she was born) are rescues. Jo Jo came from the farm market and Sylvester was born to a rescue. Rescue cats are the best!
