Purrs. It’s Hermione. I am very excited that, this Saturday, August 8, at 7 pm EST, I’ll be able to view the Cat Writers’ Association’s Awards Ceremony with Debbie and my two brothers. This looks like such a pawsome event, and Debbie who has already won three Certificates of Excellence will learn if she’s also the winner of a lovely Muse Medallion or another great prize for her writing.

In addition to this great event, the Cat Writers will be raising money for a very good cause, the Tabby’s Place Cat Sanctuary. Every donation they receive up through August 17, will earn a chance at some perfect raffle prizes donated by sponsors. Further details about the fundraiser can be found here.

Paws crossed that Debbie wins another award. I’m so “purr”oud of her. All cats and people are invited to watch. You don’t have to be a member of the Cat Writers’ Association to view this special event. The awards ceremony will be streamed live on the CWA Public Facebook page. There’s also a Facebook event page where you can view it. Don’t miss it.


Sneaky’s Feature Friday Film: Blessing of the Animals

Debbie asked me to show these videos because she’ll be attending a Blessing of the Animals at her church this Sunday. As part of that service, pets who have left this Earthly plane for Rainbow Bridge or Pet Heaven will also be remembered.

The first video is one of the Fireside Chats that Debbie’s Pastor has been filming on important topics and the church’s view on them. This week’s topic was “Do all dogs (and cats) really go to heaven.” The other videos are of Blessings of the Animals at other churches that traditionally take place in October to honor the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saints of animals.

Sneaky’s Feature Friday Film: Remember Me Thursday

Hi, there. It’s Sneaky with a few Feature Friday Films that I should’ve shown yesterday for Remember Me Thursday, but because it’s never too late to adopt a pet, I’m sharing them today. Also, did you happen to catch my author’s blog post about her adoption of Harry and Hermione who still write occasional columns on this blog? If not, you can read it here.

Happy Kitten Day and a Giveaway from Harry and Hermione

We just found out that today is National Kitten Day. If you know the story of our adoption and have kept up with our Kitty Korner columns, you’ll know that we’ll be turning one in just a few weeks and that our human, Debbie who also happens to be an author, is giving away two of her books for free in honor of our upcoming birthdays.

For National Kitten Day, we would like to offer some free coupons good for 12-count variety packs of Purina Fancy Feast® brand wet cat food, any variety (up to $11.99 value). We will paw five random winners for these coupons from everyone who sends a photo of their kittens or cats to Debbie at debbiewriter@yahoo.com  with the email subject: Kitten Day Contest Entry and follows her on any or all of the following social media sites. The winners will be contacted on Monday, July 15. Winners must be U.S. residents. In addition to winning the coupons, each winner will have their kitten or cats’ photo posted on this site in the future.

Also, don’t forget that, to celebrate our birthdays, Debbie is hosting a fundraiser for Golden Paws Society, the rescue from which we came. The fundraiser has already started, and it would be great if you could contribute any amount to help kittens and cats on National Kitten Day.
