A couple months ago, my mom drove to Florida with the bubbies. She asked for my advice on how best to do it, since I’ve driven to Florida with kittens before, and to Tennessee with an adult cat (I’m located outside DC).
My cats were my babies long before my daughter arrived. The addition of a human baby only meant our family was getting bigger. However, I had to endure (and still occasionally endure) negative comments and doubts about all 8 of us being one big happy family.
A month ago, Rook was scheduled for a dental cleaning.
I’ve been doing research for Product Development, and on trends for charity donations and consumer buying behavior. Many of us animal lovers directly donate time and money towards the cause, but indirectly, many of us also want to know what companies are doing on their part. If I have a choice between brands when purchasing a product, knowing that profits may go towards an agreeable cause will certainly influence my purchase decision.
This isn’t a new NPR article, but I stumbled across it while doing research for my Product Development class (it of course has nothing to do with my product either)
At the Humane Society I worked with, we wouldnt’ adopt black cats on Halloween. You could fill out the paperwork, but not be allowed to bring kitty home until after the holiday is over.
Gizmodo had an article about the benefits of toys that force an indoor cat to earn their food. They’re part of what are frequently called “enrichment toys,” toys that involve more critical thinking than “I want to murder this toy shaped like a mouse.”
It made me think that I should probably talk about my personal favorite cat enrichment toy.
My husband shared an article with me awhile back that shared what I thought was an excellent situation for feral cats.
