Quality Control… and Pets Add Life

She's been holding out on me!

I can’t believe how sneaky my human is! While she was at the Cat Writers Conference this past weekend, she was one of several attendees given leftover goodies to pass along to local shelters and rescues. I had no idea she was part of this until she hauled this amazing box into the living room yesterday!

Wow! Just... wow.

It is pretty much the same as what we got in our goodie bag earlier this week — only lots more! In fact, a lot of the items from our goodie bag will be added to this. In fact, there are two boxes going to two different rescues!

She thinks ALL toys and treats should belong to her!

Somebody does not look happy that all these goodies are going away. But that is too bad because they are. We have done a lot for rescues all over the U.S. this year, and my human wanted to do something locally for once. One box is going to the Friends of Animals Foundation, an organization that her boyfriend got to know when he was working at the vet clinic. The other one is called Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats! They specialize in TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), and socializing and adopting out feral kittens. She is hoping the treats and toys will go to good use as “enrichment” for the kitten’s schooling.

This is a great time to do this because November 19 is National Get a PAL for Your Pet Day, and these two groups have lots of awesome, adoptable kitties! I also wanted to mention that Pets Add Life is having a “Help a Shelter Out” contest — go to this Facebook page of theirs and you can vote! The contest closes November 16, and the shelter with the most votes gets $10,000 — the second place shelter gets $3,000 and third place gets $2,000.

Not everyone is qualified to do this job!

Before these boxes go out, somebody needs to do quality control and make sure everything is in order. I immediately appointed myself. Besides, Binga was disqualified. I will show you why.

It is a good thing that I keep an eye out for trouble making!

I found this evidence a couple of days ago — Binga was sneaking into the goodie bag behind my human’s back!

At least I would not get caught!

I would never sneak treats without permission!

By the way, Pets Add Life is having a Blog Hop! If you want to take part, and help promote how much we add to humans’ lives, just add a post that shows off some of the fun things you do!
