Mulberry’s BACK and filling in as Guest Blogger for Jean Luc
I’m back! After a little bit of an absence, for a teeny tiny tummy issue which has since resolved, I’m now back at the Orlando Cat Cafe, and ready to be adopted by my new forever family.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people who asked about me during my absence — your cards, phone calls, texts and emails were much appreciated as well as the several balloon-o-grams I received (ok, just one of those!).
While I was away, I was thinking about something that was told to me when I was a kitten. In the ’80’s, around the time that my Grandmother’s, Grandmother’s, Grandmother’s, Grandmother’s, Grandmother was alive, Pantene (the shampoo company) had a commercial with the tag line “Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful.” As I grew up, my mom told me about that commercial, as her mom told her about it and so on and so on and so on….
The ladies in my family are all beautiful and that goes back for multiple generations. That commercial described us well. But our beauty goes beyond just being skin (in my case fur) deep.
Today I want to talk about looking beyond my good looks, which admittedly will be hard to do, but try. Because, beyond my gorgeous green eyes, luscious white fur, and adorable black splotch on my nose, lies the heart and soul of a feline who wants to do some good in the world — using both my external and internal beauty.
The Animal League has made this easy for me to do! They’ve made me a Sunshine Fund Pet Ambassador, which is like a UNICEF ambassador, but for animals! Broken bones, puppies with parvo, skin diseases, and even tummy troubles, are all part of everyday shelter life. With rising veterinary costs and so many pets in need, a “beautiful” pet, such as myself, can help defray some of these costs, through the Sunshine Fund. My beautiful looks, can help save animals that require extensive and costly veterinary care. External beauty meets internal beauty!
When you adopt me, you help 1) me and 2) a less fortunate pet find our forever homes. As an bonus, anytime someone comes to visit you, or you take me to the vet for my annual checkup, you’ll hear “what a beautiful cat”, which, frankly will be good for both of us! Just because I have inner beauty doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about my outer beauty too! Because, come on…just look at me!
Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful — instead adopt me and let my both my inner and outer beauty help change the world — one kitty at a time! Come visit me at The Orlando Cat Cafe — where all the cool (and beautiful!) cats hang out!
