Random Fridays

One of the local pet store chains is doing a litter sale for local rescues. The local store where we do some adoptions (the rescue has several remote locations in pet stores) - where Tostada and Margarita were both adopted - is giving that litter to our rescue. The donation drive runs for the entire month of February, and for a special price, customers can purchase a 33 pound bag of litter that will be donated. This particular store is running a contest among it's employees. To date, they have had over 5,000 pounds donated. Read that again: 5,000 pounds!!! (and the contest is only half over) To put that in perspective, the big container that can be bought by most people in stores is 40 pounds. That is 125 containers!!! All we can say is YAY TEAM!! and thanks.....

Also on Sunday, a nice lady that knows the other volunteer at the adoption event came into the store. She asked about making a donation. Since we are heading into kitten season soon, we both suggested that she get some kitten food. The other volunteer knows we foster kittens so she suggested that we take whatever was purchased to restock our pantry. Well....this nice lady bought a HUGE bag of canned food. We should be well stock (for a little while anyways). THANK YOU to her and to all those who donate!!

mom says she is busy all weekend, so it should be pretty quiet around here - well, as quiet as it ever gets with Daiquiri and Nashville chasing each other all over the place....

We will try to keep ourselves entertained


  1. What a wonderful lady to give you large bag of canned food for the shelter.
