First Foster Cat Friday

Thank you, thank you, to all you wonderful, generous cat bloggers! We're so excited to announce that today Artsy Catsy fostered our first Best Friends cat with proceeds from the bookmarks you've ordered since the benefit for Mu Shue.

We gave Rocky, our CEO (Cat Executive Officer) the honor of selecting which kitty to foster. As you know, Rocky has been in political mode lately, and that influenced his choice. He wanted to show that the world has more than just BAD Scooters so he chose a GOOD .....
Scooter was born in 1997 but, sadly, he was born without back legs. He used to be a 'clinic cat' in Arizona, keeping the vet staff company and greeting patients. But some of the clientele were disturbed about the poor little guy's appearance so Scooter got fired from his job as a vet greeter.

But he got a great new job at Best Friends as the greeter at Kitty Motel, and now he's very happy ... especially when visitors come. He gets all excited and scoots as fast as he can to be a good host, his huge eyes almost crazy with enthusiasm when he gets petted. They appreciate Scooter at Best Friends, and they love the way he looks!

And, thanks to all of you, Scooter got a pay raise today! Thank you so much for helping us make life easier for special kitties.

What good news about Scooter. He's a special cat.

Artsy Catsy said...

Hi there, O'Jete! Everything we do here at Artsy Catsy is a benefit. We believe it's good to do good. We donate at least 10% of all proceeds from all our products to animal rescue organizations, such as Best Friends -- sometimes more if we can't resist!

Scooter is our favorite Best Friends cat ... We've 'dopted him, too ...

How wonderful that you sponsored Scooter! I'd love to meet him, he'd be my friend, and my sisters would love him, too. What a purr-ecious boy, and so sweet and special. And my Momma wants to give him a big hug and kiss.

I can't believe it! I have a black cat called Scooter too! Mine was born 23rd March 1993, so he is nearly 14. But he is doing well, especially as he has FiV :^(

Oh, that's mean that the vet clinic made Scooter move just because some people couldn't handle his looks!!

We're glad you sponsored Scooter!!
