Petfinder launches ‘I am a Cat Parent’ campaign

Cats far outnumber dogs in the United States, but they are often seen as second-class pets. Women who love them are accused of being Crazy Cat Ladies, and men who care for them are given strange looks. People unjustly claim that cats are aloof, untrainable and unlovable.

To help break down these stereotypes and help encourage more people to consider adopting a cat, Petfinder has launched a new campaign, “I am a Cat Parent”. The campaign highlights cats and shows cat parents for what they are – real, funny, down-to-earth, inventive and diverse.

Petfinder wants to prove that EVERYONE can love a cat. Visit the “I am a Cat Parent” home page and check out some of the fun things they've pulled together to help cat parents show their love and spread the adoption message:

Help prove that everyone can love a cat.Write a blog post, embed one of their shareable images, tweet about your cat love with #IAmACatParent, or showcase your favorite adoptable cats to help show the world that cat parents are a diverse, awesome group!
