Meet Spaz: Our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Spaz - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest Winner

Born to a feral mother, Spaz was found by a friend. We took her home and have had her for three and a half years. She greets her favorite person, the man of the house Daryl, every day when he comes home. Every night she finds a lap to park herself on and stays there until it’s time for bed. Spaz is a very vocal cat, meowing nonstop if she deems she needs more attention.

Congratulations to Spaz, our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Mark Your Calendars — February Holidays and Observances

February Holidays and Observances - Page-A-Day

February is for Feelings!

February is chock full of feelings! 

  • International Flirting Week: If you haven't met that special someone, put your feelers and do some flirting starting on February 14th through the 20th.
  • International Friendship Week: Cupid may not be calling this year, but there's still an opportunity to connect with someone you care about starting on February 10th.
  • Random Acts of Kindness Week also starts on the 14th! Find a way to share the love and pass it forward through the 20th.

Meet Moose & Squirrel: Our Page-a-Day® Cats of the Week!
