Save Kitty Cats – Litter For Good

Cat’s Pride donates 1 lbs. of litter for every green jug of Fresh & Light purchased

Hello, friends! It’s us, Jinx and Josie, hijacking mom’s blog again to do something good for our fellow felines. We want to let you know how you can easily help save kitty cats while doing your regular shopping for your own pet cat.

We know that cleaning out the litter box and changing the litter is not on the top of your favorite things to do list, but what if you could be Changing Litter for Good®?

Together we can make a real difference!

It is easy peasy to join the Cat’s Pride Club and nominate your favorite animal shelter. Just click HERE to get started. Then, every green jug of Cat’s Pride litter you buy, one pound of litter is donated to shelters in need.

We know that keeping your cat happy and healthy is something you take very seriously, and we thank you. But think about all those sweet little kitties living in shelters and dreaming of a forever home. Help them by helping the shelters that take care of them.

We want every kitty to be as happy as we are. One of the things we look forward to every morning is waking mom up (sometimes she thinks it’s too early just because it’s still dark) to take us outside. We love to explore our backyard, smell the pretty flowers, and watch and talk to the birds. Yes, Jinx is something of a cat Dr. Doolittle. He loves his hummingbird friends.

Of course, being cats, we love to snuggle, sleep, and play too.

Find out how I’m helping millions of cats, simply by buying @catspride litter for Jinx and Josie. #ad #LitterForGood #catlitter #kittylitter #cat #helpanimalshelter Click To Tweet

Well, we hope we have inspired you to sign up for the free Cat’s Pride® Club to nominate a shelter to receive litter donations. Over 4 million pounds of litter have been donated since 1995, and nearly 400,000 pounds have been donated this year already. You can find updates on the program donations and shelter highlights on the website too.

Join the Club!

 

You can purchase your own green jugs of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light litter at a local store near you. We grabbed ours at Walmart. The Cat’s Pride Club offers valuable coupons and incentives throughout the year, so don’t miss out.

Keep Pets Safe At Halloween – Dogs And Cats

We love our pets — they’re one of the family. Keep pets safe this Halloween by checking out this infographic, get tips, and be aware. #Puptober #pets

 

Keep Pets Safe At Halloween

PSA Infographic from PuppySpot for #Puptober

We love our cats, Jinx and Josie. They are definitely precious and we don’t want them to get hurt in any way. Dogs and cats have special needs. So, it is important to be aware that not everything that is good for you is good for your pet. Take chocolate, for instance, I love a yummy chocolate fix once in a while (ok, maybe a little more often than that), but chocolate can be deadly to dogs and cats.

 

So, I’m sharing this fabulous infographic created by PuppySpot to help you keep your pet safe at Halloween.

I hope you found this infographic super informative and helpful to keep your pets safe this Halloween. Share it with all your friends!

Happy Healthy Pets – Jinx and Josie

Hey, everyone! It’s us, Jinx and Josie, we had a fun day at Kriser’s Natural Pet, and want to share how you can have happy healthy pets too.

Happy Healthy Pets

Jinx and Josie take their new harness leashes for a first run at

Kriser’s Natural Pet Store

 

We got new harness leashes! Is that a good thing? Jinx and I wondered. After all, we are just starting to have a little outside time in the gazebo. We like the fresh air, laying in the sunlight, smelling flowers from the potted plants, and chasing whatever bug crawls or flies by. But, if we are out too long, we start to get a little nervous.

Now, with these new harnesses, will mom, dad, and Rory want to take us out more often? Exercise is one thing, trash truck monsters are another! We hate Thursdays (that is when the big blue monsters roar loudly through the neighborhood, and give the trash cans a Disney ride with their massive claws). It’s scary!

 

An Adventure with Jinx & Josie:

We tried our harnesses on, and mom let us walk on the grass–that’s a weird feeling. LOL Next thing we knew, we were being placed in our kennel in the car. Yep, even pets need “car seats” for safe travel. We took our 20% OFF Coupon and headed to our local Kriser’s Natural Pet Store for a shopping spree! YIPPEE!!! What girl doesn’t love to go shopping.

Kriser’s is a really cool store that specializes in healthy, natural, and holistic items for your pet. Pets, like me and Jinx, are important members of any family, and Kriser’s wants to be sure they provide families with all they need to keep happy healthy pets.

The Kriser’s Pack (the people working in the store) were super friendly and oohed and awed over us. We both ate it up, especially Jinx…you know how he is. MEOW. But more importantly, the Pack was knowledgeable and willing to work with you to help you find the right products for your pet.

Quality and Safety are a priority in every product or service offered at Kriser’s with an emphasis on natural, holistic, nutritious, and healthy. Every product is hand-picked and approved by the founder and owner of Kriser’s Natural Pet.

Inside the Store:

Mom was impressed with how clean and well-organized the store was, and felt comfortable letting us explore the store on our harnesses, smelling and testing out everything we wanted. Let me tell you, there were some strange looking cats roaming around that store. Mom and Rory tried to explain that they were dogs, but we still thought they were strange looking cats.

During our adventure, we found a bed that is perfect for the two of us to cuddle in together, and some really cool toys too. Jinx’s favorite part was the loads of different types of food and treats, and the Pack was very willing to share the differences and benefits of each. You can definitely find one that will be perfect for you pet. And best of all, they are healthy and natural, a truly holistic way of caring for your pet. Your pets deserve the best, right? They even have a bakery section, COOKIES!

Kriser’s has supplements, chew toys (I think those strange cats mom keeps telling us are dogs like those a lot), and all sorts of pet supplies and accessories. They even have a beauty parlor! They call it grooming, but we all know that just means SPA DAY!

We couldn’t buy everything in one shopping trip, so we started our Christmas Wish List–one can never plan too early.

Look, we’re Movie Stars!:

Check out our video to see more of our super fun trip to Kriser’s Natural Pet Store.

 

Well, mom did not disappoint us. We got that wonderful bed that’s going to keep us cozy all winter long, and a few other things — a coon skin cap, a peacock feather butterfly, and a couple of Boinks (you can see Jinx’s blue one in the photo, I have a lavender one that I have stashed away for my own personal use), Open Farm grain-free cat food, and even some Primal Freeze-Dried Formula treats for those scary Thursdays, when the big blue monsters have gone.

You can GET A 20 % OFF COUPON. PLUS,  you will be placed automatically into a Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $200 gift card!

CLICK HERE

Take your pet to Kriser’s for a day of holistic health,  pampering and fun. Check out their website for special events. Having happy healthy pets is easy with Kriser’s Natural Pet! #KrisersHolisticHealth #HappyHealthyPets
