Sponsor a Cat

Are you wondering how you can help make a difference in the lives of cats needing forever homes? Perhaps you’ve already maxed out the number of pets for your household, but still want to do something to help?

Sponsor a cat. Or sometimes this is called virtually adopting a cat.

Contact your local pet shelter or humane society and ask if there is one cat you could “virtually adopt” or sponsor. Tell them you would send either cash donations and/or donate items the cat can use. If they agree, dash over to the shelter/humane society and choose a cat. Have them tag the cage with information that you are a sponsor for that cat so the workers there are aware of the setup.

Take photos of the cat and spread the news that the cat is needing a home.

Ask for updates from the shelter if you are unable to stop by frequently. Be sure to honor your pledge to donate cash and/or items for this particular cat. Hoping this baby gets adopted in a timely manner, then choose another cat to sponsor!

Many cat lovers want to help and make a difference but don’t know what to do and feel helpless. Either they have no more room in their home for additional pets or they don’t have time to volunteer or don’t have enough money to completely care for another pet of their own. Becoming a sponsor for a cat benefits everyone involved. What you’re donating for that cat is just that much LESS money the shelter has to put towards that cat’s care. AND if you help to actively promote the cat’s adoption needs and someone chooses to adopt this cat, YIPPEE! That is the perfect ending!

The joy you’ll experience being a part of this process is priceless. Now go call your local shelter or humane society and ask if they allow people to sponsor a cat… and if they haven’t done such a thing, please encourage them to do so, as they will benefit from your help.

What do Pet Bloggers Spend Their Money and Time On?

Pet Bloggers are Pet Parents. If they’re not, that’s a bit strange. That is, unless some recent tragedy happened to their fur baby and they are petless for the time being. And so, pet blogger members of Blogpaws.com (we are members) took a survey. The following is an infographic with the results.

Kitty Holsters Availability Update Thru Cats The Boss

Kitty Holster Cat Harness Update on Availability through Cats The Boss

As of December 4, 2013, Cats The Boss is no longer a dealer for Crazy K Farm , the maker of the famous Kitty Holster®  cat harness.

To be clear – we LOVE the Kitty Holsters!!

But… the steps required to process an order on my end are simply too time-consuming and frustrating  (several emails [the order to Crazy K Farm, two separate emails to the customer]), completing forms, dealing with Paypal 2-3 times for one order, changes to original orders, delays in shipments, etc.). Crazy K Farm does not have an affiliate program, for those wondering, and so it’s not as if the customer clicks a link on my cat site and is sent to the Crazy K Farm website to place their order. The ordering is NOT “automated.” The customer goes through me. I take care of placing the order for them, which includes all the chores mentioned above in parentheses.  What if I want to go on vacation (ha! but you never know!), and someone places an order through me for a Kitty Holster? If I’m not at my handy-dandy computer to check on any possible emails (from Paypal) alerting me to the fact an order was placed, then the customer’s order just sits and sits and sits until I can finally get back to processing their order with Crazy K Farm.

And so, after close to two years, Cats The Boss bids a fond farewell to Crazy K Farm.

If anyone is interested in purchasing one of the awesome Kitty Holsters, please visit Crazy K Farm website!!! Here’s the direct link to the Kitty Holsters

Help fund food and care for rescued animals…I did!

First, I have no affiliation with the following site. I don’t get paid anything for posting this info…

TheAnimalRescueSite.com If you happen to need a pair of shoes, shirts, shorts, jewelry, watches, mugs, pet clothing, bags, and so much more, go check out this site. A portion of your purchase goes to feed and care for rescued animals. I think it’s awesome! It even shows like how many cans of food your purchase will pay for. I bought a pair of walking shoes for my treadmill. They are adorable with purple coloring and paw prints splattered all over them!! And they are as comfy as marshmallows! I also bought a shirt that says I Love My Rescued Cat. Many times you can get free or discounted shipping and other specials are offered. And there’s a section for clearance items, too! Here are pictures of the exact items I bought:

There is so much to shop for that I want to go bonkers buying stuff! Anyway, go check it out. If you’re in need of any of offered products, why not buy from them?! I did! TheAnimalRescueSite.com
