Saturday Snapshot...Don't Forget About the Animals...


You know that bumper sticker that promotes rescuing animals and it reads, "Who rescued who?" That's how I feel about my two former strays: Roma the Dog and Puppy the Cat. My husband found Roma on a busy road and had she stepped a few feet to one side, she would have been smack dab in the middle of 45-mile per hour traffic. We took Puppy the Cat in after he was kicked out by a neighbor in Florida because his ex-girlfriend dumped him and he just wanted to get rid of the cat. In the four years we've been blessed to have them in our lives, these two have done more for me and my husband than we ever would have imagined. We are so very lucky.

Clearly you can see that I prefer a lot of blankets on my side of the bed, which apparently is their preference as well...

I encourage you to remember the animals who are alone this holiday season. Don't bypass a dog on the street; instead, call the local SPCA to help pick them up. And one way you can always help is to donate dog food, cat food, toys or beds for the animals in your local SPCA. Or better yet, bring a pet home with you.

  7. This photo could easily be one from our home. Our 3 cats and 1 of our dogs were rescues and you are exactly right. They bring more to us every. single. day than we ever have to give back to them. Lovely reminder, Natalie! :)

  10. Such a sad, but also happy story for you and your husband. I am not a huge fan of pets (if you knew me, you would understand), but I understand that pets need to be cared for like they are your own human family members. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season.
