Better Than a Belly Full of Cake

DSC_0136

Charelene feels she really has everything a cat could want (except for a tasty batch of kittens) so she decided that on her birthday, she might do a little giving herself.

We picked up a few bags of cat and kitten food to donate to the Humane Society's food bank and we think we might just make this a birthday tradition.

She thinks it makes her feel better than a full belly of cake does.

  3. A donation is a wonderful idea! I'll have to inquire if there's a similar food bank in my area.

  5. Miss Bean, you are beautiful inside and out. And those bags of kitten chow do bring out the bluest blue of your eyes. Happy birthday!

    What a great idea Bean! I just checked my local shelter's web site and found their "want list." In the next day or so I'll be bringing a bunch of stuff over to them. I'll be sure to include some kitten food in your honor!

  11. Whoa, Charlene, you just raised the bar for b'day celebrations!! What if we all gave, instead of just receiving on our special day???
    Smootches, sweetie!

  14. Oh Happy Day Charlene! In your honor our Mom adopted a new kitty today! She was fostered with her 5 kittens (3rd litter in a year!!!) As soon as she's had her itty bitty bits taken care of, she'll be coming to our forever home (really, we've been here over 18 years.)
    Anyway, it's all because of you and your generous nature that she decided to look at foster homes to find our new sibling. Thank you Bean for being so inspirational.

  16. That's what I requested for my Christmas and my family, between them all, kindly mustered $200 worth of dog and cat food which went to the Tacoma/Pierce County HS. That and a box of Frangos is all I need for any holiday;)

  17. My girls have asked me to put donations to a shelter near our various homes instead of more toys for their collection.

    We also review their collection of toys for goodies to drop off at the HS in Bellevue when I play "pet food fairy".

    Thanks for being an inspiration through this awesome community!

  19. I'm sure Charlene would rather have a belly full of kitten food... That's a lovely thought for a birthday celebration.

    I'm going to try to adopt that same giving attitude this year, methinks... :-)

  22. Awesome! My kitty's birthday is coming up on April 4, I think I'm going to donate food to the shelter I adopted her from to mark the occasion.
