Thankful Thursday

Mommy here!

I'm not going to lie. One of the (many) perks of blogging is getting free stuff. While receiving product compensation isn't going to pay the bills, I figure if it's something I was going to buy in the first place (like books or cat treats) I'm still at least saving money in the long run.

Then there's high-end items like the SkratchKabin we were able to review. Mudpie can't imagine life without it.

Through various campaigns and review requests we receive quite a bit of cat food. It's a widely known fact around here that Mudpie is the world's fussiest eater (anyone want to challenge me?) and anything I find that she agrees to eat once every 3 weeks is considered a success. Even when she likes something, as an only child there's only so much she can eat, so we typically keep half of what we receive and set aside the rest to donate to our favorite shelters. By last week we had accumulated enough that it was time to pack things up and make some deliveries.



On Tuesday Franklin County Animal Rescue (Tara and Truffles' alma mater) posted this picture on their Facebook page with the message, "Thank you Melissa & Mudpie...kitties love your gifts!!"


So the lesson of my story is that while money is great, helping homeless kitties is truly priceless. Seeing the precious babies that received our donation has been the highlight of my week, and it's all because of our little blog.

What's put a smile on your face this week?

  7. What a wonderful thing you do, Mudpie and Melissa, donating food to shelter kitties. This picture put a giant smile on my face as well. There's something so wonderful about seeing shelter kitties getting special treatment as they await their forever homes. And you sure gave these kitties a very special, happy moment. Purrs!

  9. Any unopened cat food that is found to be disliked (yes Hannah and Lucy do have very discerning likes and dislikes) is put into a bag and when it gets heavy I go to the nearest cat sanctuary and take it there.

  17. So wonderful to donate the extra to the shelter. We do the same when there is a food our mom buys that we won't eat.

  18. How heartwarming! We're sure that Tara and Truffles' alma mater appreciates the assistance. And these days, Pierre might give Mudpie a run for the "fussy eater" trophy.
