Black Friday has come and gone (um, can we even call it Black Friday anymore when it started on Thursday night this year?) and Cyber Monday hit record sales. But I don’t buy into the discounted refurbished items.
My favorite day of the season is Giving Tuesday! It’s the day when organizations ask everyone to look into their hearts and give to a charity that means something to them. For me, it’s always been about animals.
It’s been exactly two weeks since I lost Olivia Mewton John to a fire. Though the house and everything in it is completely gone, the material loss is recoverable but the pets are not. Though she was only five years old, to me she was still a baby but I’m grateful for the short time that I’ve had with her.
This year for Giving Tuesday, I will be donating to Animal Care & Control of New York City’s 2013 Holiday Fund Drive. I adopted Olivia through AC&C as well as volunteered at the shelter so this will be very bittersweet for me.
For anyone who loves animals, wants to donate, or just wants to learn more about AC&C of New York City, just click here for the link.
Don’t forget to hug your pets today! Happy Holiday Season everyone!!
Happy National Cat Day!
Above are 10 reasons why you should consider adopting a black cat but here’s reason #11: if you wear mostly black (I’m looking at you, NYers), their hair won’t be noticeable on your clothes!
My brain is so fried right now. I needed this.

Here’s another reason why I want to leave the US and live in London:
Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium, London’s first cat cafe, will be opening soon thanks to a crowd funding and the vision of one Miss Lauren Pears.
Pears’ dream is for Londoners to “kick back and relax with a cup of tea and spend time in the soothing company of our purring feline friends” for the low, low price of a fiver (or 3 pounds per visit if you buy a 9 Lives Card).
First comes the caffeine, then comes the cats. Lady Dinah’s will be working with animal rescue organizations to give kittens their forever home at the cafe. This is the first cafe of it’s kind. Cat cafes started in Taiwan and spread to Japan, Korea and Austria.
I think I found my next venture…
