Hi, everyone! It's me, Finn!
And I just wanted to remind everyone that May is Back in Black 2 ... a national adoption event promoting the adoption of black dogs and cats, sponsored by Best Friends Animal Society. You can learn more about the event, and Best Friends HERE!
Obviously, as a black cat, this is an event very dear to my heart. Black cats are awesome, as anyone who has ever known and loved one can attest, and I am sure black dogs are awesome, too, even though I don't personally know any.
The last time Best Friends had this event was back in August of 2011, and we tried to do our part by holding a COMMENT-A-THON and this time around we'd like to do the same!
So leave your comment here ... and if, on May 31st, you are the one randomly drawn, you can win a $100 donation to the rescue group or shelter of your choice! It's pretty easy - just leave us a comment telling us who you'd like to receive the donation in your name if you win, and you're entered! One caveat: there have to be 100 comments (or more)! So leave your comment today!
Meanwhile, check out some of these "black beauties" available for adoption at Best Friends!
This is ORLANDO!

Orlando is described as "wiggly, bouncy, and happy" by the Best Friends staff. He is also reported to be very food motivated so he would probably love to learn tricks. Orlando is cat friendly, but might prefer to be an only dog. He is afraid of children. Do you know of someone who is looking for a big, friendly guy like Orlando to give them lots of love and maybe be their new partner in a dog sport like agility or Rally-O? Tell them to contact Best Friends and ask to meet Orlando!
If felines are more your cup of tea, then you might want to meet Lady Opal!
To me, Opal looks like the feminine version of my good pal, Spitty, and who knows? Perhaps a full-time partner in crime might be just what this confirmed bachelor and ladies' man needs? Listen to what Best Friends says about Lady Opal: "Opal doesn't have any self-esteem problems. She likes for you to pet her. But if you fuss over her too much for too long she may start giving you 'diva attitude." Um, excuse me, but does that sound like Spitty's perfect other half, or what? That lush midnight black fur? That piercing diva stare? This is Spitty's soul mate, I'm sure of it!
Happy Tuesday, everyone, and don't forget to leave your comment telling us which organization you'd like to get the donation if you're the winner!!!
