We can all use a reason to party during this crazy year. Our namesake, the beloved Alex, is turning seventeen on August 27. We are taking this opportunity to celebrate starting today.
We have some very exciting celebrity guests and old friends who are making videos for Alex's big day! We don't want to spoil the surprise, so please check back daily through the 27th to see who has made an appearance.
The party is taking place on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and anywhere else you want to share in the celebration! We'll be keeping this page updated with links from our celebrity guests and friends. If you would like to participate, please send us an email.
Alex is a happy and healthy cat. He has plenty of food and toys, so he is asking for donations to help keep his legacy and mission alive. Please donate whatever you can to help cats and dogs who are less fortunate than Alex.
As the celebrities arrive, we will share their videos here:
