This Kitten REALLY Gets Into His Dinner – Literally!

Our cats amuse, surprise, and sometimes even gross us out with their funny little quirks. Every cat has them, and what makes them unique is often what makes us love them so much!

This kitten’s quirk? He’s into food. Like, really into food! He takes his bed in breakfast. He can combine lunchtime and naptime. He couldn’t decide if he wanted to eat his food or swim in it – so he’s doing both!

 

This food is seasoned with ginger (kitten!). With a bowl that big, it’s easy to see how he might have mistaken it for a pool, but once he gets bigger, he’s going to either need a new quirk or a bigger bowl!

This Cat Wants to Thank You for Helping Nurse Him Back to Health!

Part of each sale through the iHeartCats store is donated to Greater Good, which helps support various charities. Thanks to customers like you, happy endings, like the one below, are made possible.

A Michigan Cat Rescue volunteer found Casper outside. He was starving and had a severe upper respiratory infection. Thanks to GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank, they were able to feed Casper high-quality donated pet food and nurse him back to health.

Today Casper is thriving in his foster home as he awaits adoption. He plays with toys and other cats and enjoys sleeping in the sun!

Casper is still a little flighty, but he loves laying in his foster mom’s lap and getting pets. He has the prettiest blue eyes and the softest white fur!

“Rescue Bank has been a tremendous help to Michigan Cat Rescue. We are a very small organization, and every donation counts. So when Rescue Bank can help us out with food donations and such, it is extremely impactful!”

Just by shopping from the iHeartCats store, you’re making a difference in the lives of shelter cats! Your purchases contribute food to rescues through GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program, so rescues can use their funds to save even more lives!

Feeds 14 shelter cats!

Shelter Comes Up With Purrfect Solution For Senior Cat Who Loves Being Held

Dougie is a 15-year-old ginger cat who LOVES to be held. According to a post on the Facebook page of Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland:

“When he’s not being held, Dougie’s meow can be heard from galaxies far away.”

The shelter needed to think creatively to allow Dougie to be held while the staff still got work done around the shelter.

According to the Facebook post:

“We thought creatively and decided a baby bjorn allowed Robert [Weimer] to both hold Dougie and do his job effectively 🙂 And, we think it’s pretty much the cutest thing we’ve seen, ever.”

Dougie, who had been fighting inflammatory bowel disease, was just put up for adoption this week. Luckily for him, that Facebook post went viral and he had a great new home within a day!

Since Dougie already has a fabulous new home, we’d like to remind you that your local shelter is still full of pets that need great homes! If you’re interested in finding a pet from the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, you can check out their website here.
