Are Snowshoes pretty?

So Mom went to our local Animal Rescue League today to drop off some food for the kitties. No, she didn't bring them Nutro. The Nutro brands are not good food (Max Cat and Natural Choice). A pet food should have three good protein sources in the first five ingredients. Max Cat food doesn't have that. They have alot of corn gluten, wheat flower, ground rice. Natural Choice has Wheat Gluten. I don't eat anything with Gluten any more. I had a urinary tract blockage twice and I think it came from all those grains in my food. That's why we want the Nutro ads removed from the vet blog and from Dogster. You can find more info about this here Say No to Nutro

Back to my story. Mom brought them kitties a bag of premium food. Something that Mietzi and I eat too. While she was there, she looked at the adoptable kitties. No, we are not getting one. She just can't resist looking. There were these two humans who asked the volunteer about a cute kitten. The volunteer said there is a waiting list for that one. Because she is a Snowshoe kitten. The humans said how pretty she is and "how long is that waiting list again?". I just don't think it's fair that humans always go for the pretty cats. And the color of your furr says nothing about your purrsonality. Mietzi and I are just plain tabby cats but we sure have alot of purrsonality. We are really nice and Mom is so happy to have us. So don't judge a book by it's cover.

I'm off to look for some pictures of Snowshoes to see why everyperson thinks they are pretty.

Yew know, we ish now eating wonderful holistic pet food too - with no yucky grain fillers - we ish loving it too! I just hads to mention that - thish whole Nutro nightmare on here has helped ush to learn what are good pet foods and what aren't. I just wanted to say that even pure bred kitties gets abandoned and actually snow shoes kitties are furry shweet. Mommy hads some next door neighbors who used to make theirs go outshide when it was raining and were horrible people He would cry and cry to be let in and they ignored him - *hisssssss*! Just when Mommy had it arranged fur him to be catnapped by some wonderful rescue org people, these evil neighbors moved away. She used to let him in here and he had a furry odd trick he could do - he would stand up on hish hind legs, put hish front paws together, and act ash if he wash praying. He did that many times, and it always shocked Mommy because she had never seen a cat do that, and hash never since. We hopes so much he eventually got into a good and loving home!

But yesh I agrees with yew about that pretty kitty thing - I hads a liter brother who wash alsho trapped when I wash and he had long fur, Siamese markings and blue eyes, and he wash adopted immediately - even though both of ush wash totally feral at that point, he looked like a pure bred, so he wash snatched up immediately. I am a furry pretty kitty too but they didn't want me - that wash fine though, because I wash supposed to be with Mommy and now I am.

Yew and your sister are both furry pretty kitties and dun lets anyone tell yew any different! Sadly pure bred animals ish abandoned all the time too, just like ush regular kitties are - all Mommy's pawrents dogs when she wash growing up were pedigree dogs whose owners moved away and made all the usual excuses irresponsible humans do when they gets tired of us. We thinks shelters need to be super careful when placing a pure bred, just like they should be with all animals, because sadly many humans want a pure bred for status, and not because they've fallen in love, like Mommy did with ush.

I ish glad we ish eating great healthy food now - and that wash sho nice of your Mommy to donate to the shelter. Yay!

I meants that when Mommy's pawrents neighbors would move, they knew that Mommy's pawrents would adopt the dogs they were not taking with them, and that ish how they came to be part of Mommy's family.

Meows dear Humphrey. Thank you for calling us pretty *blush*. We are just the best in our Mom's eyes. She likes our stripes. You and your brofur are very handsome cats. Happy to hear that you are eating healthy now too. Doesn't it feel good? We got switched slooowly to the buffalo food and now we eat it all the time and we like it. Mom does that sometimes, buys extra food for the shelter kitties. I think she just does it to have an excuse to go to the shelter and look at the cats.

That is quit a story about the praying cat. I have never heard of that before.

I hear what you are saying about pure bred furs. I think sometimes they have it even harder than us mutts. Some people buy them on impulse or to impress somebody without thinking. That was so nice of your Mom's family to take the dogs in when their people moved away. You know, that's how I ended up in the shelter. My former humans left me there because they moved. Then Mom found me. I'm so glad she did.

We loves you because of your big heart, not because of the color of your fur (((big hug))).
