Seymour is a former shelter cat who is about to celebrate his 11th birthday, and also his one year anniversary of being adopted into a loving forever home.
Instead of gifts for himself, this selfless pussycat is having a toy drive for shelter animals to help brighten their day. On August 17th, he'll deliver the toys to local shelters, which no doubt will include Angels of Assisi, where he was adopted from nearly a year ago. Maybe I'm just overtired/emotional right now, but I have to admit that watching this, even over the strains of "What's New Pussycat," made me a little misty-eyed (I think it was the 'before and after' pics that got me).
If you'd like to help make Seymour's birthday wish come true, please send cat (or dog!) toys to the following address:
P.O. Box 4728
Roanoke, VA 24015
You can also track Seymour's progress by following his Facebook page, I Love My Big Fat Cat, and I'm sure he'd approve if you donated toys to your own local shelter in his honor, too.
