Arrival Story: Sofie, Riley, and Pebbles are from Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, a non-profit rescue organization. Mary was Pebbles' foster mom and started her own non-profit rescue organization, Animal Rescue and Care Network, Inc. On Saturday, August 19th, I went to the pet store where Mary was showing her rescues. I joked to my husband that I would come back home with pet supplies and a kitten! Foster moms become family to us, and we always stop by to see them when we're at the pet store. I noticed "Munchkin" right away and Mary told me (with no pressure) that if I were interested, she'd give her to me. I told her I'd go finish my shopping first. Well, I phoned my husband and next thing you know, I had kitten food in my cart! Even though they waived the adoption fee, I made a donation anyway. They loaned me a carrier and she became kitty number eight!
Bio: Mary was driving along the highway when she spotted a calico cat walking along the road. She took the next exit to backtrack and drove to the run-down industrial area she thought the cat went. The calico took off when she saw her, but then Mary heard a kitten crying. She meowed like a mama cat and coaxed malnourished, filthy, and sickly little Joy out from a shack and got her into the trap. Joy was a beautiful kitten and is gorgeous now. She coos, trills, and purrs alot, especially while she's being brushed!
Happy Birthday to me today! It's also my best friend Dexter's birthday, whose badge I still have on my page, although he hasn't come here to play in such a long, long time, and I sure do miss him.
Yesterday, Mom took Huey to the Pet Wash at our local Pet Food Express store. I think they only have stores in California. Anyway, she came home with two cute beds for us. One is a square tote and the other is like a purse tote! They weren't very expensive, plus they were 20% off. I added a picture of them to my page even though no cats are shown in them. Actually, Riley got in the square one so he will have a picture of him in it. They're made by Precision Pet.
While we're on the subject of pet stuff, I don't think we ever mentioned that we've been using Pet Flow for quite awhile now to deliver our cat litter. We use the Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat litter for multi-cat households, and being we need so many bags it really helps to have them delivered.
Thanks, everybody, for stopping by and celebrating my birthday with me today, and on the day of the annular solar eclipse!!
We received two catnip mats from Zack and Zoey today and went wild! After rolling around on them, some of us started running around the house, rubbing against furniture like crazy and scratching the carpet in a frenzy. MOL!
Thanks, Zack and Zoey, it's been a long time since we've rolled in nip!
We got a new dog bed and I just added a picture of me getting ready to sleep in it. It's a Cesar Millan dog bed and I heard that Cesar whispers to dogs!
Mom's friend at work gave it to us because she bought two for her two small dogs and decided she only needed one. She thought Huey would like it but obviously she's never seen Huey! Mom told her she would take it for us though as she knew we would like it.
