Just about everyone knows the old adage that cats have nine lives. Felines are clever and lucky, indeed. They know how to live on the edge, so to speak, and get away with it — time and again (plus a few more times for good measure!).
“9 Lives for $9” national cat adoption event
In partnership with No More Homeless Pets Network partners, Best Friends’ upcoming “9 Lives for $9” national cat adoption event, sponsored by PetSmart Charities, will spotlight, as well as celebrate, the talent for living precariously embodied by pet cats.
The nines have it
Now, you might be thinking, that’s all fine and dandy, but what the heck does “9 Lives for $9” mean? Well, you’ve come to the right place to find out.
The “nine”s in “9 Lives for $9” refer to the following:
the age of the cats to be highlighted by the promotion (9 months and older);
the length of the promotion (9 days, November 10-18); and
the reduced adoption fee ($9).
As popular folklore attests, cats are imbued with the ability to tempt fate nine times and get away with it. This being the case, who wouldn’t want to adopt one of the mystifying felines from the Best Friends Sanctuary or a participating No More Homeless Pets Network partner?
Don’t miss your chance at destiny – adopt a feline, and together live happily ever after.
