San Diego has cats on the brain. It’s kitten season, the time of year when unaltered felines reproduce at rapid rates, resulting in thousands of homeless kitten litters—last year alone, 4,600 orphaned kittens relied on San Diego Humane Society to find forever homes. And this year, kitten season just so happens to coincide with election season. As the campaign heats up even further for the 2016 Presidential election, Americans have seen a variety of less-than-savory headlines gracing their television and computer screens.
To combat all this negativity in the stratosphere, the hilarious folks over at local clothing company Tipsy Elves have come up with an ingenious way to stir up some positive patriotism with their hilarious initiative “CatsForFreedom”. This thoughtful inventiveness is dedicated to raising money for the sweet animals under the care of the San Diego Humane Society, and couldn’t come at a better time.
Who needs the Cat in the Hat when you can have a cat in a box? As a part of their #CatsForFreedom initiative, this apparel company is working with some of their favorite DIY bloggers to garner up support for a grassroots initiative to overtake all of the negative trending stories and replace them with positive, furry feline fun. Using Tipsy Elves’ very own Patriotic Tops, bloggers from across the blogosphere have bene creating their very own Cat Cave hang outs for curious kittens.
What in the world is a Cat Cave? At first glance, it might just look like a t-shirt pulled over a cardboard box, but the reality is so much more than that. This symbol of patriotism is the perfect playground for your favorite feline, and a great way to remember that America is much more than what the candidates would like you to be focusing on.
Tipsy Elves will be donating 10% of all orders using the checkout code ‘CATS’ to the San Diego Humane Society, to allow San Diego’s cats (and their doggy counterparts) the resources to live freely. Make America purr-fect again during this year’s election season by giving back to the San Diego cats that so desperately need your help.
