The Internet is brimming with famous kitties who have stolen cat lovers’ hearts. There’s Maru, the adorable Scottish Fold, living in Japan, Grumpy, the kitty famous for her enigmatic scowl that put smiles on people’s faces was one of the most beloved internet felines. When she was only seven years old, Grumpy unexpectedly passed away from complications from a urinary tract infection. Her countless fans were devastated when they learned about her death.

Snoopy, a magnificent Exotic Shorthair kitty, is one of the most famous cats globally, especially in China. Her owner is so devoted to this gorgeous feline that he spends hours taking pictures of her.

Speaking of celebrated kitties, have you heard about the PookieCat Brand? In case you haven’t, let me introduce this amazingly popular orange kitty, the icon of the brand. His entire mission in life is advocating for special needs cats. And while his motto may be “LAUGH at LIFE!” he also has a somber side, especially when it comes to these kitties. Pookie Cat is an ambassador for all “special needs” cats’ adoption.

Pookie Cat’s popularity has been growing by leaps and bounds. From what I hear tell, rumors have it that this colorful, comical character already has thousands of adoring fans around the world of all ages, with lots of new fans jumping on board every day. Founded seven years ago in late 2013, Pookie Cat’s Facebook Page continues to keep it freshly updated every day with new content. The site chock full of fascinating information, feline fun and humor. Over the years, the Pookie Cat Brand has received close to 9,000 “likes” and close to 8,000 followers. So if you are craving to have your funny bone tickled, drop on over, “like” it, and join in the divertissement.

Based in Europe, The Pookie Cat Brand has an “international” flavor. What began mainly as a comical image, within two years, the brand has blossomed, and it continues to grow exponentially. His fans can’t seem to get enough of Pookie’s style of humor and his laid-back philosophy of life. Having high ambitions for the Pookie Cat brand’s success, the brand’s chief marketing officer, Etienne Van Bruggen, said, “The overall plan is to build Pookie Cat into one of the world’s largest beloved Brands.”

But what’s getting even more exciting for the folks at Pookie Cat Brand is their hugely successful transition from the Internet to the offline world. Items that are catching their customers’ eyes are their colorful Pookie Cat Calendars, postcards, mugs, t-shirts, books, and cross-stitch sets. Please keep your eyes out for some new licensing projects such as stationery, plush toys, and many more exciting items. With their energetic approach to marketing their brand, every aspect of each of the Pookie Cat brand campaign’s detail gets monitored.

Many years ago, I was assigned to write about Pookie Cat. I was highly impressed with him as I got to know more about the Pookie Cat brand and his dedication to special-needs cats. Recently I got to wondering if he was still on Facebook, continuing his support for special needs cats. I was delighted when I discovered that PookieCat is still alive and well and still maintains that all cats are special and how important they are to him.

But what’s getting even more exciting for the folks at Pookie Cat Brand is their hugely successful transition from the Internet to the offline world. Pookie Cat is exceptionally concerned about the significant number of cats languishing in shelters waiting to be adopted. But what concerns him the most are those special needs kitties because they are overlooked so often.

These are those cats who may have behavior problems, who may need specialized medical care, and those who are rarely chosen because they are too elderly. Pookie Cat knows that when our hearts open to a special needs cat, the boundless love they return to us is astounding. These cats appreciate the love and attention that they receive from people who genuinely adore and understand them. Perhaps this is because they possess that uncanny ability to sense our feelings.

For a moment, imagine what life would be like without at least one or two cats sharing your home and heart. Could you imagine life without having the gentle touch of a paw on your face or hearing that loud, resonating purr telling you how much you are loved? Who best can chase away your doldrums, turning it into laughter rather than a cat’s silly antics? Purrsonally, I can’t think of anything else.

Check out the special cats waiting for adoption into fur-ever loving homes. Pookie the Cat adds new adoptable kitties as soon as they are listed.
