"Hi Periwinkle. What are you smiling about?" he asked. She told him how she was remembering last week and said how happy she was to be his steady girlfriend. She told him she was the luckiest girlcat in the world to be going steady with such a handsome guy. Stinky blushed and they spent some time catching up, sharing whisker kisses and paw pats. Stinky asked what they were going to do that day. "I hope this isn't too boring, but today is an important day and I thought it would be good to do a PSA for our friends about World Spay Day" she replied. Stinky agreed that it was an important message. "As long as we are together, anything we do is special" he said.
"Tell me more about World Spay Day" said Stinky. Periwinkle explained "Launched in 1995, aims to encourage people to save animal lives by spaying and neutering companion animals and feral cats. World Spay Day itself is celebrated annually on the fourth Tuesday in February but the event, no matter how big or small, can take place anytime throughout the month of February, which is recognized as Spay/Neuter Awareness Month."
Periwinkle told Stinky that she looked up what was going on in her county and found the following information.
"My brofur, Raz, came from the Space Coast Feline Network." He was neutered before Mom adopted him. Noelle (my alter ego) was spayed by her foster Mom before she came to live with us. She has a tipped ear." "My Mom and Dad made sure that all of my fursibs were spayed or neutered too. Kizmet came to them already spayed." said Stinky.
Both Periwinkle and Stinky were amazed when they read the chart about how many kittens can be born from unspayed female cats.
Periwinkle agreed. After reading more about World Spay Day, the two decided it was time for a snack.
