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.
