Giveaway: Gift Bag Set from Honest Pet Products

honest-pet-products

This giveaway is sponsored by Honest Pet Products

Honest Pet Products was born out of founder and president Mary Wolff’s desire to use her creativity and compassion for all living things to do something that truly mattered. The company follows three basic, unrelenting, and uncompromising principles that are reflected in everything they do: to be true to our pets, to be true to our planet, and to be true to our people.

Honest Pet Product toys are made from the safest, natural and durable materials possible, from materials that promote sustainability and carbon footprint reduction. The toys are made in Green Bay, WI and Newfoundland, Canada by people with cognitive and developmental disabilities. Their 100% truly NATURAL wool cat toys are handmade in Mongolia by women of impoverished, nomadic herding families living without many basic needs. Through the Snow Leopard Trust’s Fair Trade cooperative, these families earn a living with their traditional wool-working skills. In exchange, herders are protecting the endangered snow leopards that share their habits.

In addition to all of this, the toys simply look adorable – what’s not to love about a company like this!

Honest Pet Products sent us a big box full of an assortment of their toys. These toys are incredibly well made, with lots of creative touches, and the catnip used in some of the toys must be potent stuff! Allegra went completely nuts over the catnip toys.

Enter to win a gift bag of 8 different toys and a grooming brush

Honest Pet Products is offering a gift bag of goodies to one lucky reader. The bag contains a set of 8 different cat toys and their natural bamboo grooming brush with organic cat shampoo. Because many of the wool cat toys come in multi-colors, the total number of toys in the bag is actually 12.

For up to 6 ways to enter, see the Rafflecopter widget below. This giveaway is open to readers everywhere. This giveaway ends Thursday, September 1. Winners will be chosen by random drawing.*

Operation Homeward Bound: An Idea, a Van, Jackson Galaxy, and 43 Kittens

jackson-galaxy-homeward-bound

On June 27, Jackson Galaxy and his wife Minoo embarked on a 1,000 mile journey from Los Angeles to Boulder, CO to save the lives of 43 kittens through a new program by the Jackson Galaxy Foundation, Homeward Bound. I had a chance to speak with Jackson about the successful rescue mission.

Jackson and Minoo were alarmed when they heard about the dozens of kittens in overcrowded shelters in their community. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley had previously told Jackson that “if you’ve got kittens, let us know, because we need kittens!” What could be simpler than taking the kittens from a place where they’re going to die to a place where they could find homes?

National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day

take-your-cat-to-the-vet-day

August 22 has been designated as National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day, and while it may not be your cat’s favorite “holiday,” it’s an important day designed to raise awareness about the importance of regular veterinary check ups for cats.

83% of cats are taken to the vet during the first year after they’re adopted, yet over half of them never return for subsequent wellness visit. Given that cats age more rapidly than humans and are masters at masking illness, these statistics are worrisome. Continue reading…

Purrs of Wisdom: Your Reviews Are Appreciated!

purrs-of-wisdom

Yes, I am shamelessly exploiting Ruby’s cuteness to ask you to take a few minutes to post a review of Purrs of Wisdom: Enlightenment, Feline Style on Amazon. I mean, who could resist that face, right?

Seriously, though – if you enjoyed my book, I truly would appreciate it if you would take the time to share your thoughts about my book on Amazon. Amazon reviews really help sell a book. They not only give potential buyers confidence when deciding whether to buy, they also help the book rank higher on Amazon, which, in turn, means that more people will see it via Amazon’s “you might also like” or “customers who bought this also bought” suggestions.
