We got a huge shipment in and I was inventorying everything to make sure it was there -- and having the hardest time telling Pimp and Moo these toys aren't theirs! We have plenty of toys (way more than two boys need, actually) and these are for the Santa Paws Drive shelters!
By the way, these aren't even all the toys. There were a TON of cat toys that didn't make it in the picture that I have here -- and we're still taking donations! Don't forget we have six shelters full of doggies and kitties that we're splitting this between. So the more the merrier!
And then I had to tell him they weren't his. He is not a needy kitty, our Santa Paws Drive shelter kitties are! But that didn't stop him from trying to make off with a catnip felt cube...
He was better about not trying to steal any. He just kind of sniffed around and gave his paw of approval.
So I started counting, and as I was taking everything out of the boxes and piling up what I'd counted, this is what I ended up with:
Have you ever seen so many toys in one place? It was so awesome! The picture does it no justice. THANK YOU to everyone who has donated already!
If you haven't, please help us add to the pile! The Santa Paws Drive shelters have a total of 554 cats and 95 dogs at last count, so this pile has to go a long way! You can donate toys and treats through tomorrow, and donate cash or buy raffle tickets until December 20.
(If you haven't checked out the raffle yet, you should! We have over $1,000 of amazingly fabulous pet products you could win. Tickets are only $1 and all proceeds go to the shelters as cash donations!)
Let's make the mountain of toys even bigger and send these special animals the best holiday ever!
