Wow, there are 60 million more pets than people. I guess it’s due in part to people like me who have more pets than humans in the household. That number probably doesn’t include the number of pets waiting for homes.
My cats are going to celebrate their one-year birthday at the end of this month. Since I’ve gotten them pretty much anything I would get them, I am going to donate to their shelter, Pets In Need, in their name, to celebrate their birthday. My employer has a gift-matching program so that donation will be doubled. Yay!
Although I got two cats, Pets In Need only charged me for the price of one. I got them for a total of $100. The price included for each cat:
- shots already done
- free vet visit
- a bag of food
- collar with bell
- cardboard carrier with towel since I didn’t already have carriers
- two toys
I think all those things are worth more than what I paid for them. Then there are the priceless rewards I get… my cats’ love and companionship.
