Hey cat lovers! Join the PUREVAX® team and me at Austin Humane Society on Saturday, July 15 from 12 pm – 4pm. You guys know that I’m the biggest cat lady since I adopted Beethoven from the Austin Animal Shelter a year ago and I’m constantly making sure he’s healthy and happy.
I helped foster 4 kittens from the shelter last year and fell in love with this little guy above, Beethoven. Wasn’t he so cute with his baby blue eyes!? I learned early on as a cat foster mom that it’s super important to vaccinate both kittens and cats.
Rabies is a fatal virus that threatens the lives of animals across the country, including cats. More cats are infected with rabies than any other pet in the U.S., and all it takes to contract this disease is exposure to the virus through the saliva of an infected animal through a bite or scratch (1). The scary truth is that rabies is deadly – there is no cure or treatment for the disease once an animal develops clinical signs.
- Vaccination is an important tool to help protect cats against rabies, and PUREVAX Feline Rabies vaccines are the only rabies vaccines made specifically for cats. They are pure, safe and proven to provide effective protection.
- To help educate cat owners about the importance of vaccination, the PUREVAX team launched the PUREVAX Pure Protection program. Visit www.PurevaxPureProtection.com to learn more.
I’ve teamed up with the PUREVAX team to host an awesome adoption event at Blue Cat Cafe in Austin, Texas to meet fellow cat lovers and help spread the word about the importance of feline vaccination. In case that’s not reason enough, the PUREVAX team will pay the cat adoption fees for the first ten adopters! I hope you’ll join us at 12pm – 4pm on July 15!
