Thankful Sunday Selfies

We here at Three Chatty Cats have a lot to be thankful for. So for our Sunday Selfies, we thought we’d pass along our thanks.

Handmade Toys are the Best

First off, a big thank you to Auntie Ellen – I mean the Tooth Fairy – over at 15 and Meowing for sending our little Olive some toys after her dental surgery, which I wrote about earlier. Ellen sent so many toys that Olive agreed to share some of them with foster cat Juno, who was excited to do her first ever Sunday Selfie!

Shelter Me: Community Matters (Episode 7)

Last year, I shared with you Episode 6 from the “Shelter Me” series, which I thoroughly enjoyed watching. So, I was excited when I recently had the opportunity to watch the latest episode of the national PBS show “Shelter Me: Community Matters”.

Created by filmmaker Steven Latham, hosted by animal welfare icon Dr. Jane Goodall, and presented by the Petco Foundation, the latest installment of “Shelter Me” focuses on when communities come together to help animals in need. Continue reading “Shelter Me: Community Matters (Episode 7)”

Lakes Animal Friendship Society & “Nobody’s Cats”

Founded by Valerie Ingram and Alistair Schroff in 2008, Lakes Animal Friendship Society (LAFS) is based in Burns Lake, British Columbia in Canada. The group is run by the husband and wife team and recently became a non-profit charity.

Valerie and Alistair also authored a children’s book called Nobody’s Cats, which is how I learned about the rescue group. Fellow blogger Cori of Three Irish Cats wrote about the children’s book, and I promptly ordered it, finding it to be a great educational book that teaches children about trap-neuter-return (TNR) and the importance of caring for community cats.

Did you watch the Rose Parade?

First off, Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings you joy, happiness and love. Now, did you watch the Rose Parade yesterday? If you did, I hope you saw the Lucy Pet float. I was one of the volunteers who had the wonderful opportunity to help decorate the Lucy Pet float this year.

While at BlogPaws in June last year, my fellow attendee (Jaimi) and I met the Lucy Pet team. Somehow the float was brought up and we were added to the float decoration team. It was a fantastic experience and something I would definitely do again.

Decorating the Float

Jaimi and I drove up to Irwindale bright and early on December 27th. We parked at a designated volunteer lot and then were Continue reading “Did you watch the Rose Parade?”

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It should, right? Christmas is only four days away!

Just a quick maintenance note before I get to all the holiday fun. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve now migrated the blog over to being self-hosted. I was told that anyone who subscribed to the blog via WordPress.com will now only see posts in WP Reader and will no longer receive emails when there’s a new post. If you still want to receive email notifications, then you will need to subscribe again, which you can do on the sidebar to the right (if you’re on a computer) or at the very bottom (if you’re on mobile). Sorry for the hassle – this only applies to WP.com readers. If you subscribed with your email address before, you should continue to receive email post notifications as usual.

Thank you to all our kitty, doggie and human friends for sending all of the wonderful Continue reading “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”
