The Purring Buddha Needs An MRI

As a CatLadyBox subscriber, each month I'm introduced to unique cat-themed items produced by small business owners and artisans who are inspired by their own furry muses. Back in June's box I received a handcrafted soap and spa washcloth from the Purring Buddha Etsy shop. I fell in love with the soap and have my credit card ready to place an order for more. (Who else loves putting pretty soaps in their bureau drawers?)

Purring Buddha makes artisan body products (soaps, bath bombs, lip balm, body scrubs, butters and lotions) with a "higher conscience" using organic, natural, fair trade, palm oil free, cruelty free, non gmo, vegan , vegan friendly, eco-friendly and locally sourced ingredients. They donate a portion of their profits and products for rescue fundraisers and encourage adoption, rescue and fostering. Now they need a little help themselves.

Purring Buddha is named after the shop owner's beloved 3-legged kitty Buddha. The little guy is having seizures and needs to have an MRI to find out what's causing them. The minimum cost is $1,250 so a GoFundMe has been set up to raise money. You can also support the cause by shopping for Purring Buddha products. Use the coupon code "MRI4BUDDHA" at checkout for 15% off your purchase!

Ready to start shopping? (Think stocking stuffers!!!) Here are some of the Purring Buddha products we're purring over:

  2. Pretty soaps are a lot of fun! I truly wish I had some green papers to donate - I know how tough it is to cover very large vet bills!

  8. I think I looked at their shop recently but the prices were too rich for our blood. The joys of being a poor blogger. I love Happy Goat Soap which keeps the bathroom smelling nice. I hope Buddha can get his MRI and am sending him healing purrz.

  12. The scrub tops have nice V-neck collar which I think looks better, on me at least. It's not low cut either. It is a bit transparent, which is typical for white. I wear a tank or camisole under it.
