A Year of Giving

Hi everyone, Katie here.

We're here with Molly, the 1800PetMeds Cat, to share some exciting news with you for 2014! We're proud to announce that is now part of a wonderful donation project in partnership with PetMeds called Suggest A Shelter In Need.

Every quarter, our favorite hometown shelter, Feline Rescue Inc, will receive a giant gift shipment of cool stuff for the shelter kitties. Each donation, valued at $500, will include everything from medications and food to treats, toys, beds and furniture.

You may have heard us talk about this wonderful rescue before. Whenever there's a contest or opportunity to leverage our blog to help these kitties, we try to jump right in. Minnesota's Feline Rescue Inc is a small local shelter making a big difference for homeless and endangered cats throughout our state. Funded through private donations and run completely by volunteers, it's a shelter that has won our hearts here at GLOGIRLY.

So when the kind people at 1800PetMeds invited us to partner with them and select a shelter to support, we were tickled to tell them about Feline Rescue.

As if the generous donations aren't enough, they're letting us choose some cool stuff to try out here at the Townhouse!

WAFFLES:  Check it out Boss! We got a Bootsie's Bunkbed & Playroom for Cats!

KATIE:  Don't you mean we got a Bootsie's Bunkbed & Playroom for YOU?

WAFFLES:  Awww, c'mon Boss! I'll share. 

KATIE:  A small enclosed space? With YOU? I don't think so.

WAFFLES:  C'mon Boss! It'll be fun!  There's holes to peek out of....

WAFFLES:  And there's a dangling spider and leather laces to catch! This Bunkbed has EVERYTHING!

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! I call the top bunk!  Boss???

Special thanks to 1800PetMeds for inviting us to be part of this great program to help our shelter kitties.  Learn more about PetMeds' Charitable Causes and what they're doing to support the pet community. We're excited to share more updates with you throughout the year!

  25. We Feline Rescue humans love you! But not as much as our kitties do. My troublemaking Julio just passed through my office and has two things to say:

    1) I want one of those boxes - mine - not to share with Maude and Scarlett - all mine;

    2) Hey, Katie, you're cute - want to come over and climb drapes?

  26. That is so wonderful. What a cool toy you got too.
