Alley Cat Allies is asking everyone to not only plan an event for National Feral Cat Day, but to also use the power of social media to get the word out about feral cats. They’d like for folks to connect with them on Twitter and Facebook. You can visit their Facebook page and Like them HERE. To find events in your area, go HERE.
Additionally, here are ways you can help if you are a social media guru (or even if you’re only kind of adequate at this stuff, like me!):
- Follow Alley Cat Allies @alleycatallies and tweet your National Feral Cat Day activities using the hashtag #NFCD2011. On National Feral Cat Day, Alley Cat Allies will be live tweeting from their very first open house at their headquarters, so follow them to see what they’re up to and tell them how you’re helping cats! Make sure to follow #NFCD2011 yourself (just type it into the search bar) to find out how the Twitter community is celebrating across the nation. Find something neat under #NFCD2011? Share it with your friends with a retweet!
- Let everyone in your social circle know you’ll be helping cats on October 16 by posting your National Feral Cat Day plans on Facebook now. Then, follow up on the big day with updates and photos! Be sure to tag Alley Cat Allies in your posts and photos, and share your National Feral Cat Day experiences with all 20,000 of Alley Cat Allies’ fans by posting directly to their wall. Plus, keep an eye on their Facebook page for photos of their open house and special National Feral Cat Day-themed LOLcats!
