Hunky Men Volunteer For Kittendales 2014 Calendar Raises Money For Shelter
Love Meow ^ | Oct 29, 2013

Posted on 11/02/2013 9:17:33 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

A group of hunky men from all walks of life volunteered their time posing with their furry kitten friends to help their shelter in a fundraiser and bring up the awareness of shelter animals and adoption.

“The Kittendales project was conceived in early 2007 when the board of directors at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue was brainstorming about how to raise money for their cat shelter. Chris Crotty, one of the founding members of the shelter decided it would be a good idea to put together a calendar of hunky men and cats. The concept was proposed to photographer Joanne Berman, who offered to shoot the calendar at no cost. Susan Davis, a board member at the time, offered to coordinate and give freely of her time to make the calendar happen. Susan and Joanne made it their “pet” project, and in the Spring of 2007, their hunt for a few good men began! The response from the guys was overwhelming. Their willingness to donate their time, and desire to be a part of this venture, for the benefit of the kitties, was extraordinary!” (Kittendales.com)

Pictures at source. The kittens look a bit dubious about the whole affair.

Hey, good for the guys, good for the kittehs. Jokes about gay guys aside.... I’m a straight hetero guy, and I’d pose for this calendar in a minute if I was “hunky” but alas, I’m not. I’m in good shape for 61, but that’s a Different Thang Entir’ly.

“Hunky” is one letter away from “Husky”... just sayin’.

~one of the founding members of the shelter decided it would be a good idea to put together a calendar of hunky men and cats.

Some people have all the good ideas. I could have posed with my kitty-pride of 20+............

OTOH, they said "hunky", not "chunky" ;)

That has to be the gayest calendar ever. They should have used Gerbils.

Okay now...I am the first to agree that female Freepers should be able to enjoy a few “I’d hit that” threads, same as our male counterparts. But those guys are a tad girly looking to me.

Come on over to the Walking Dead thread tonight for some Daryl Dixon hunkiness.

There were a few guys that l did like looking at, but in all honesty, the tattoos were deal breakers despite the fact they were holding kittens so cute my head exploded.

Oh what to do. Buy the calendar or better yet, ask one of my married friends for the calendar?

I’d love to see a calendar of freepers kitties.

Everyone happy. I’ll look into it for 2015.

Lol! Yep, I’m so old now, I picked that particular picture because I thought the cat was cutest. The guys were all too pretty for my taste. My whole life, I’ve never liked the sleek dolphin look of the gym boys.

Thanks for invite! Kids, you’re going to bed early tonight. Mama needs Mama Time.

I really, really want to write “You post your pussy, and I’ll post mine.”

However, I am currently being attacked in another thread for being an immoral “New Society” brainwashed idiot because I don’t agree that George W. Bush was a complete disaster.

So yeah, I never wrote that. You did not see that and get yo’ mind out of the gutter.
