I  have a pretty small house and after doing over 76 cat product reviews, I end up not having room in my house to store everything.  So over the holidays, I decided it was time to clean house and donate some of the cat products to a local shelter so that other kitties could benefit from it.

We donated to Animal Haven in Merriam, KS.  Here is their contact information in case you would also like to donate in some capacity.

I dropped off all the donations 2 days before we went down there to take photos of the kitties playing with everything and hanging out.

I wanted to say thank you to all the manufacturers that send us product to review because it is really neat to be able to review it, enjoy it and share it and then donate it to share it again.

One of the most interesting parts of the donation was that the Urban Pethaus wave perches had to be turned upside down because the felt pad that comes on them could carry ringworm from one cat to another (not from Trigg and Charlie but from all the cats that go in and out of the shelter).

Eventhough we were doing something positive by donating these products, it was still a hard thing to go through – to see all those kitties in cages.  Please do help your local shelter in any way that you can – which sometimes doesn’t require any money at all.  I leave you with photos of the shelter kitties.

    It’s so nice that you donated all these products! I dare not visit a shelter because it breaks my heart. I would want to take ALL the pets home with me, too. I do contribute regularly, though, and hope that helps.

      Beth, it almost makes me sick to my stomach to visit a shelter.

        Me, too! Last time for me was about 25 years ago, looking for my lost Trouble who returned on his own after I went to three shelters. I was crying before I got through the first place. It just kills me to see the pets caged–or think what fate awaits them if they are not adopted soon enough.
        Foster care is different. Two of my best friends have fostered and sometimes still do. The kitties are not in cages. They get lots of love and attention, roam through the house perfectly happy.
        I have the greatest respect and admiration for people who work in shelters. They are much stronger and better than I will ever be.

    What a neat thing to do — some kitties are gonna be so happy to have something to play with. It broke my heart to see those beautiful little faces, tho.

    That is a good idea! I donated all my and my roommate’s cat stuff that we accumulated over the years since she was moving and my cat had already passed. Shelters are always in need of stuff, such as extra litter boxes, blankets/towels, bedding or pillows, toys of course, and much more. It is really heartbreaking to visit animal shelters because you can tell those animals really love attention.
