A Cat Day on Earth

Today’s post is a little different from our usual fare.  When Janiss Garza, the human behind Sparkle, the award winning author, premiere feline advice columnist and feline supermodel, showed me the video she produced for the One Day on Earth project, I knew I wanted to share it with you. 

The project was meant to capture one 24-hour period,  October 10, 2010, or 10-10-10, that documented the human experience all over the world.  Janiss and Sparkle decided to document a 24 hour period of feline life.   It’s a video about the feline experience, but it’s also about the human experience, because, as Sparkle says in her blog, “it is humans who can make a difference.”  So without further ado, here is A Cat Day on Earth:

    This video had me crying-to think their only crime was not having a home. I thank my rescue and the foster mother who had my kitties every day. you just want to take home every one of them.

    We saw this video on Sparkle’s blog but loved watching it again. It is so well done. It makes me so sad to think about all the homeless cats. This video needs to be shown over and over. Thanks for showing it to us.

      I agree, Marg, this is something that should be shown over and over. It makes me want to hug Allegra extra hard each time I watch it.
