KITTENZ!!!!! Always deserving of capital letters, an excitable Z and an overuse of exclamation marks I say. Today Maneki Neko Cat Rescue held their Kitten Kisses Pop-Up Kitten Lounge at Best Friends Pet Care Super Centre in Preston. For a small fee of $5 per person, we got to spend fifteen minutes hanging out with kittens and soaking up some adorableness.
Maneki Neko Cat Rescue (MNCR) is a volunteer run all-breeds cat rescue and is a registered charitable animal welfare organisation. Formed in 2012 following many years of informal cat rescue, MNCR’s work to improve the welfare of cats and kittens covers increasing rates of reclaiming and re-homing, reducing euthanasia rates, promoting microchipping and desexing and working with the community, businesses and local councils.
LITTLE PAWS IN SOCKIES!!!!!
I love how animals all have their own unique personality! There were some kittens that were quite feisty and others more timid:
Lots of sleepy kitties too:
Before I knew it the fifteen minutes were over and I regretted not putting the camera down more and getting more kitty cuddles in. I felt like I had to be super delicate because they were soooo tiny compared to my two big tubby cats!
What’s better than a pop-up kitten lounge? A pop-up kitten lounge with an accompanying bake sale!
More information about Maneki Neko Cat Rescue can be found at http://www.neko.org.au/ as well as their Facebook page. You’ll find information on the website about adopting, fostering, volunteering and more, including an online shop.
The kittens had a big room to play in and numbers of humans per fifteen minute sessions were limited. The bake sale treats we bought were also pretty good and a fair bit had sold out by the time we got there. I’ll definitely sign up again if another kitten lounge is held!
