Hot to Adopt

By now, I'm sure you know my husband and I own a German Shepherd dog named MaQ. What a lot of you don't know is we are also cat people! One of our dearest friends has two adorable kitties that he rescued (Owawa & Tiger) and we consider them to be like family. (Even though the 'kids' - as in MaQ and the cats fight every so often ha ha!) Did you know that millions of cats enter shelters each year, yet less than half get adopted? Which is why, regardless what animal-preferred person you are, the first step one should always take is to adopt! It's #hot2adopt 😊

Fresh Step is on a mission to help every shelter cat find a forever home. I recently attended Fresh Step's Hot to Adopt Feline Fashion Lounge and Adoption Even hosted by Katie Cassidy during New York Fashion Week, where felines and fashion came together to help raise adoption awareness and have fun at the same time doing so. They had a 'cat-ified' fashion sketch artist, 'cattoos' like paw prints, whiskers and more, a feline adoption lounge where you could hang out and play with the oh so cute kittens, and even pedicabs to help you get around, with a black canopy to cover you from the hot sun or run. It was a meowing time!

And check out the adorable limited edition Hot to Adopt T-shirt I was given at the event! They even had their gorgeous models strut down the runway wearing them, with their furry pals in tow of course. 😻 A portion of the proceeds from these designed T-shirts will benefit shelter cats across the country. You can get one from or enter your chance to win one in their ongoing contest.

Fresh Step is calling all feline fashionistas (and gents) to step out wearing their love of cats in celebration of "Feline Fashion Fridays". Cat owners can show their love of cats by posting a picture of themselves with their cat in feline fashion finery to Fresh Step's Instagram using #freshstepcontest each Friday through October for a chance to win free Fresh Step litter, a $250 VISA Gift Card and your very own #hot2adopt T-shirt. Follow @freshstep on Instagram to get started. See official rules here.

I love Fresh Step because they have a long history of supporting shelters (as do I) nationwide. Let's keep increasing adoptions and saving lives. Join the mission to help every shelter cat find a furrever home by wearing your love of cats T-shirt. To learn more and help make it #hot2adopt visit
