LOVE YOUR PET DAY

Saturday, Feb. 20, was "Love Your Pet Day." Go to this site to see a slideshow of cute animals. I like Nos. 4 and 11 the best.

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/love-your-pet.html

There is also an address to send photos if you think your pet is the cutest and they might be featured at a later date.

Go give your pets an extra treat, even if it is the day after Love Your Pet Day.

Yesterday, Pet Smart was giving out free dog collars and leashes to encourage dog owners to walk them on a leash.
They were also giving out free kitty litter and box liners with the purchase of a litter box to encourage cat owners to keep
their cats in the house, not dead on the road.
Thank God I already follow these pet owner responsiblities, as the line was so long, it was half way out the door.
I didn't know what the line was all about until I stopped and asked. These people were freezing in the high winds. brrrrrr
I wonder what they were giving out for bird and fish owners? Haaaaaa

Last November when the nights started to get cold my wife started putting food out for a nasty scroungy looking long-haired black cat that was hanging out on our property. She got to the point where she could actually pet it a couple of times before it hissed at her. Now the dude waits for her at dusk and they talk to each other a little. He has also started to bring along a yellow friend who is even less sociable then he(?) was. But it does eat. I'm beginning to wonder when this stops. I do think that this might end the mouse invasion of my old cars that I keep covered and garaged over the winter though.

what a wonderful thing for the store to do. Owning pets can be expensive and any help is appreciated. I know some will say if you can't afford them you shouldn't have them, but even poor people deserve to be loved and given companionship by an animal.

Our Paws-itive Partners Humane Society helps many times a year with spaying and neutering fees, surgeries, vet's fees, and yes, supplying food when the person can't afford to buy any until the next check comes in. The vets are good about keeping their fees reasonable in these cases. After all, it's for the good of the animals.

I'm glad Pet Smart made this step to help animals.

Thanks for starting this thread.

BTW, if you have a Tractor Supply store nearby, they sell a 400-lb bag of sunflower seed for $14.99, while Wal-Mart's 25-lb bag is $15.95. Nice to know if you feed the birds.

How the heck does one carry a 400 pound bag? I highly suggest not dragging it through your house, like a 25 pound bag of kitty litter! LOL
Don't forget the peanuts in the shells for the squirls and chipmunks. Even a jar of peanut butter left out is a nice treat for them.
Doing this prevents the rodents from wanting all the bird seeds.

Oops! 40 lbs. Forty. Numbers don't have spell-check, do they.

Thanks for catching that. 400 pounds would last us most of the feeding season.
