Celebrating Cat Friendly Practices


The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) are the best advocates for cats. A few years back, they created Cat Friendly Practices, and now have 1,000 Cat Friendly certified practices around America.

Certified Cat Friendly Practices have made a concerted effort to follow guidelines to insure cats are happier or at least possibly more contented during and even before veterinary visits.

The AAFP is celebrating its 1000th designated Cat Friendly Practice milestone on social media with a fun kitty photo contest.

To Enter: share your favorite “Decade Kitty” with your friends in social media by Tuesday March 1st – 11:59 PM EDT and three winners will be chosen at random from the photo with the most shares. Winners will receive some cool kitty swag from the AAFP.

Founded in the 1970s as a small group of 25 veterinarians with a passion for feline medicine, the Association has grown exponentially and is a now the established leader in the field of feline medicine. The kitty photo contest celebrates each decade starting with the 70s.  Participants are asked to share their favorite decade image with their Facebook friends. Three winners will be chosen at random and sent a swag bag from the meme with the most shares.
