October was breast cancer awareness, and November is men's health awareness via Movember. Someone cleverly came up with the idea of promoting it through not shaving and growing out mustaches.
Seven Nightly News aired a story in 1999 including a group of young men in Adelaide, South Australia who coined the term "Movember" and the idea of growing moustaches for charity throughout the month of November. In the news report, members of the Adelaide-based "Movember Committee" explained how they came up with the idea for Movember one night in the pub. The group started with 80 men from Adelaide and soon became a nationwide phenomenon. They also aimed to raise money for the RSPCA through selling T-shirts in what they termed "Growing whiskers for whiskers"Taking care of one's health is very important. Many issues can be treated and cured when found in their beginning stages but can be fatal if left untreated. This is true for kitties, for women and for men. We know that a lot of men don't feel the need to go to the doctor when they are feeling well, but that is when it is important.
Belladora says that she doesn't need to sport a stache to be supportive, and I tend to agree.
and since it is Monday and that is my genral time for updates, the kittens are doing very well. Belladora hit one and a half pounds, so by the general rule they should be with us for at least four weeks, but probably closer to five once we have them scheduled in to be neutered so it looks like they will be Christmas kittens.
