Giving Back to the Cats

Well tonight Gabby, AJ, and I went and delivered our gifts to this year's charity- the Berea Animal Shelter. We made tons of catnip birdies for the cats and baked peanut butter treats for all the dogs. Before we went to the shelter I made it very clear to Gabby that we were just there to give presents to the animals and that they were waiting for their families to come get them since whenever we enter a shelter we come out with a pet, Spooky being the last find about 2 1/2 months ago. (Gabby agreed with me that if we brought home another kitty Daddy would scream and run away!)

The volunteers who were taking care of the cat were so nice and helped Gabby distribute the birds to different cats. I just wish that we could have made birds for all the cats... there were so many there. One of the things that I really like about this shelter is that if the cats get along with each other they can roam free of the cages. Gabby got to let a couple of the kitties out, helped fill a few waterbowls and just had fun chatting with the other helpers. I know that it made her feel really good when the cats were playing with the birds she helped stuff and even AJ had fun petting different cats.
The volunteers are going to pass the dog treats to the dogs later and I know that they will enjoy them as much as Spooky does. If anyone out there in the Cleveland area is looking for a pet please consider adopting from this wonderful shelter. Some of those cats have been there for almost 2 years. Even if you can't adopt, the shelter is always in need of supplies like cat little, canned food, hand soap, and leashes.
