The ARM & HAMMER™ Feline Generous program and the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), announced “Airy” has been named the nation’s most “fabulous foster” cat.

To celebrate Adopt a Shelter Cat Month (June), cat lovers were invited to vote on the ASPCA’s Facebook and Instagram for their favorite “fabulous foster.” As the winner of the “Fabulous Fosters” contest, Airy will be the new face of the ARM & HAMMER™ Feline Generous program and will be sent to his new home with a one-year supply of ARM & HAMMER™ Cat Litter and an adoption starter kit.

Airy will also be featured on the brand’s website and in its new Feline Fostering Guide, a free resource written by Pam Johnson-Bennett, certified cat behavior expert.

Airy’s former ASPCA foster family in New York City describes him as loving to eat, especially sardines.

Since being featured in the contest, Airy has been adopted. He now lives with his new mom in Bronx, NY and has been adjusting wonderfully.

According to the ASPCA, every year approximately 3.2 million cats enter U.S. animal shelters and rescues nationwide and of those approximately 2.1 million cats are adopted each year. Adopting or fostering a pet helps shelters conserve their space and resources, and provides people with comfort and companionship.

“We’re thrilled to have Airy as our Feline Generous ambassador and raise awareness for all the benefits of fostering purrfectly impurrfect cats,” said Rebecca Blank, Associate Director, ARM & HAMMER™ Pet Care in a press release. “Typically, these cats are overlooked for adoption due to age, illness, appearance, or misunderstood personalities and can benefit from loving foster homes the most.”
