Adopt-A-Cat Month®

As you know, June is Adopt-A-Cat Month®. In honor of Adopt-A-Cat Month® I’ve added a new page to my blog – I Need a Home Please! On it is a widget that features cats from my favorite shelter, Duncan’s Place, a Cat Sanctuary. If you click on it, it takes you to Petfinder.com and you can look up pets everywhere. It looks like this:

I hope you’ll visit Petfinder.com. You can get a widget like this one for you own blog. Or, you may just find your new best furriend there!

It’s Saturday and that means bloghop! Join the fun.

Adopt the Internet Day

Petfinder Adopt-the-Internet Day
Today is Adopt the Internet Day and Petfinder.com’s 15th birthday!

You all know that I was rescued from a trailer park by my mom’s friend and given to mom, but not all kitties (or dogs for that matter) are as lucky as I am. Some pets need help finding new homes like EK and Candy. They’re both from Duncan’s PlaceDuncan’s Place lists their available cats on Petfinder.com. Mom looked at lots of cats on Petfinder.com before deciding on EK and Candy.

Did you know that Petfinder.com has other pets besides cats and dogs? They have rabbits, horses, fish, birds, and all kinds of wonderful fuzzy furriends waiting for someone to love them. If your home needs a new addition, Petfinder.com is the place to start.

If you’re full up, please join the blog hop and help spread the word.

Pet Carriers

Peek-a-boo! Here I am in my little red tent. I just love love love my little red tent. So do EK and Candy. We love them so much, we have two of them! We play in them, we sleep in them, & we hide in them and jump out to pounce on each other. We have fun every way a kitty can have fun in our tents.

You’re probably wondering, “What does this have to do with pet carriers?” Well, I’ll tell you. Our magnificent little red tents are actually pet carriers. They have two zippers, so you can arrange them to open front, back or top. There are handles at the top for carrying. We love our tents so much we don’t even mind getting in them to go to the v-e-t. That’s right. Off to the v-e-t no muss, no fuss, no crying, no hiding. We just get in our tents and go.

We’ve read about a lot of furriends that have had to visit the v-e-t lately. They dread getting in the PTU (prisoner transport unit). They hide and run away and make it very difficult for their humans to get them in the PTU. Now, none of us, anipal or human,  likes going to the v-e-t. But sometimes you just have to go. So why not make the PTU fun?

Our tents are out all the time. We don’t have any warning about being off to the v-e-t since nothing new happens until we get there. Mom scoops us up, puts us in our tents, and off we go. Our first hint that this isn’t a new game is when she seatbelts the carrier into the car. And since I’ve had stroller outings involving the car, for all I know we’re going on an outing!

I think everyone should have a fun carrier. I think it would make going to the v-e-t or anywhere else you have to go much less stressful. Don’t forget to get nice fleecy beds to put in them. That makes them extra cozy and comfy!

My tent came from Target. I’ve never seen this type of carrier anywhere else. If any of you know of other fun carriers, post the link in the comments. There’s three of us and soon the two little ones will be too big to share and we’ll need a third carrier. It would be fun to have a new shape.
