Furry Friend Day


How much do your residents love their furry feline friends? A lot right? They’ve got their artsy photos on their Instagram, and pet + owner selfies as their DP. They probably don’t need another reason to celebrate the joy they bring to their lives, but if they do, here’s how!

May 3rd is Hug Your Cat Day and June is also Adopt a Cat Month so what better way to celebrate with your residents than allowing some extra special cat time!



Share Those Feline Selfies

One of the easiest ways to celebrate your feline friends is to encourage posting a lot of selfies on hug your cat day. Have your residents tag you on Instagram and then share your favorite pictures on your community profile!


Encourage residents ahead of time and remind them to share a hug with their favorite cat. When they share their pictures, you can even award prizes for the cats that are the most grumpy, longest hair, shortest hair, cutest face, largest, etc. to encourage participation.


Give out prizes like gourmet cat food, cat toys, leashes, scratching posts, and gift cards to your nearest pet store. You can also partner with a local pet store to give even bigger and better rewards!


Sponsor a pet adoption

If your community allows pets like dogs and cats and other furry friends in your community, consider sponsoring a pet adoption at your facility in conjunction with a local no-kill animal shelter.


You can encourage pet parents to adopt right in your community (and make sure they pay the extra pet deposit on the spot as well). You can also waive the pet deposit in an effort to get more adoptions!


Either way, the goal is to get new furry friends into as many new homes as possible.


Host a fundraiser

In addition to the adoption drive, you can also raise money for your local no-kill shelter in various ways. Encouraging online purchases through a specific charity link, hold an animal-themed art auction, or organize a silent auction for locally donated goods the day of the event.


No matter how you plan to honor and celebrate your resident’s feline friends, this spring is the best time to do it…though you probably didn’t need an excuse!
