Today is the 25th Annual World Spay Day #Worldspayday

"World Spay Day—the last Tuesday of February—provides an opportunity for shelter and rescue organizations to highlight their spay/neuter programs and win more community support in the form of donors, volunteers and clients. Created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1995 as Spay Day USA, World Spay Day has been recognized by nearly 70 countries, shining a spotlight on the power of affordable, accessible spay/neuter to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters or killed on the street."

How You Can Help:

"Everyone can contribute in spreading awareness about this day. Here's how you can help in this cause.

  • Have your pet altered
  • Encourage and aware your friends about spaying.
  • Create Awareness among people about this using social media,
  • By publishing ads or writing to the newspaper editors to publish it in newspaper articles.
  • Volunteer at nearby shelters
  • Organizing events and public speaking about spaying/neutering.
  • Raising funds for it as spaying is usually expensive  
  • Adopt pets from shelters."

  1. My human comes from a long line of people spaying and neutering their cats, starting with her grandmother in the 1950s! So she grew up with spay and neuter.

  2. Our kitties are spayed and neutered. I'm not spayed, but one day maybe I will be. Mom says it is better to wait because it helps my overall growth, joints, and bones. I only go into heat once a year, so it's not so bad.

  3. It's a wonderful thing, once it's over! It's a must do!

  4. My Daisy Mae spayed and/or neutered. I agree it is a must do. Wish everyone would take this advice.

  5. As we write this, Mom is working to gain the trust of a female stray she's named Mary. Mary is a lovely tabby with bright white paws, but clearly she's going to become a meowmy if our Mom doesn't lure her into the live trap. Trouble is we also have raccoons and the Garage Band (Nik, Chevy and Jesse) who might sneak into the trap to eat the bait. So Mom needs to learn Mary's arrival pattern and set the trap before she releases the Garage Band for the day. Ah Spring! There is always one or two...or three kitties in need of a snip and spay.

  6. Love it, Cody! You made us laugh with your graphic :)

    No babies for Athena either.

    1. thank you sweetness! It's an old one but I don't care...I love it and that's why I keep using it ;)

  7. Thanks so much for the great post. We are all... ahem... adjusted and wish there were no more unwanted kittens. Yay World Spay Day!
    Timmy and Family

  8. It's what all good humans do. Yes indeed.

    I laughed out loud with your graphic, Cody. I also linked this post to Happy Tuesday.

    Have a purrfect Annual World Spay Day. My best to your mom. ♥

  9. Thanks for sharing such a great post. It's very important for kitty owners to do. Cody you are not the kitty daddy is just the best. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

  10. Cody, when I see a male cat that hasn't been altered yet, I am amazed at the size of those marbles!

  11. Cody I love those photos!! Glad to hear you are not a kitty daddy!!

  12. Thank you for spreading the word :) XO

  13. No baby daddies or mommies here either!

  14. We've always altered our cats from Gramma on. TW volunteers with the local TNR group. Did they know she was trapping stray cats in the 1980s and getting them altered?

  15. If I had kittens, that would surely destroy all my dreams of ever owning a tasty whole chicken farm. Kitten support would be a b!+ch! ~Bear Cat

  16. We're big proponents for spaying and neutering too, Cody and Caren!

  17. I love your graphic for World Spay Day! Truffle and Brulee were spayed at about 7 months of age. Persians tend to mature a little later and our breeder recommended we wait until about 6 months. Luckily, neither had gone into heat before the surgery.

  18. Oh Cody, your graphic made me laugh!!! All kitties (and dog) spayed/neutered in this house!

  19. The second pic, lol. So sad, nothing there, and nothing here, too! My car was spayed last year.
