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.
