Today I’m thankful for Amazon & Goodwill.
Well have you seen the prices of those comfy soft throw blankets that cats love?
WalMart may have them on sale for $3 during the holidays but they generally range from $5-$10 normally. I can go to Goodwill and buy them for $1-$3 a piece.
And since my Goodwill trips are generally bi-monthly you can imagine how I stock up when I do go. And the blankets aren’t just for me.. I normally by 10-30 blankets which I test for softness, I let my cats pick out 1 or 2, wash them and get then nice and folded and sent them off to Pet Guards Angels in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
I’ve been involved with Pet Guards for going on 5 years now and I do the Wishes for Kitties (1 birthday wish = $1 donation) and at least two Kitty Care Packages a year.
So I’m thankful I can get blankets for so cheap at Goodwill, it means a great deal to a shelter who relies on donations to get by.
Amazon is a life saver when it comes to getting cat toys and trees. Pet stores are crazy expensive and I don’t mind getting a bulk amount of cat toys, giving my cats some and sending them to the shelter.
Amazon also allows you to make wish lists which is very helpful when trying to help out the shelter (or when I want to put things on “hold”).
So thanks to both of these places I can give my cats and those looking for a home a better life.
I know, I know.. another dog related post… I’m sorry to all my cat lovers and small pet friends…I had to cover this topic. It’s been an issue since I was little back when I was petrified of dogs and now that I understand them more it’s still an issue. Why don’t people have […]
Today I am thankful that animals forgive. When animals are rescued from hoarding situations, they forgive. When dogs are rescued from dog fighting rings, they forgive. The countless times that animals have seen cruelty from humans and are rescued by a kind person, they forgive. I think we as humans could learn a lot from […]
I wanted to cover this topic in light of the toddler dying from the gator attack in Orlando. Please, please keep eyes on your pets when out in nature. Since I live in Florida there are gators here so I can’t stress how much pet parents need to keep their eyes open. Gators blend very […]
Today I am thankful we have no storm damage. The house I own sits on an incline which backs up to a lake (more like a pond, but it has an official name), I am really thankful there is no storm damage and for the most part my friends and co-workers were fine. So I’m […]
After seeing this clip: I wanted to share the information about what to do if you see an animal in a car during the summer: Taken from http://barkpost.com/dogs-in-cars-2/ Basics to know: (Taken from http://aldf.org/press-room/press-releases/how-to-legally-help-dogs-in-hot-cars-this-summer/) If you see an animal in distress, call 911. Most states allow a public safety officer to break into […]
So today I’m thankful for Buttercup… the newest additional to the household, she’s the most timid, quiet member and I believe that she was abused as she flinched when I went to touch her. Mind you, I always let her sniff me before I touch her. She came up to me last week while I […]
