OMG Y’ALL FOXWOOD ANIMAL HOSPITAL HAS THE CUTEST MOTLEY CREW OF KITTENS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! They’re only a few months old, and super-tiny, and their fur is all the colors of the rainbow! Okay not really, but some of the little guys and gals are different colors: there are three black kittens, one black and brown tortoise shell, and an orange and white mini-Morris-looking baby. Normally I don’t feature the pups and kits, since they’re usually the first to be adopted in shelter/rescue situations, but OMG THE CUTENESS!

PLEASE CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT! 5 Kittens: Born 8/10; 2 Black Female, 1 Black Male, 1 Orange Male, 1 Torti Female

Contact: Call Dawn at 816-665-2339 (Please leave a message if no answer and I will call you back)

Very sweet and playful. Current on shots, Adoption fee is $75 and that includes shots and spay/neuter and felv/fiv neg.

Seriously, if you adopt one of these buggers, you must invite me over to cat-sit some time. What’s that? Cats don’t need sitters? Poppycock!

If kittens aren’t your cup of love, Foxwood has plenty of adult cats in need of homes, too. Adopt, don’t shop!

SNKC’s 2010 Pledge & Winter Donation Drives

November 16th, 2010 10:24 am by Kelly


Spay & Neuter Kansas City recently announced the start of its second annual pledge drive. From now until February 24, 2011, participants can compete to win one of three prizes, with the top fundraiser receiving two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines and $300 worth of hotel accommodations. (The second and third prizes are a Magellan RoadMate 3065 and a $100 gift certificate to Petsmart, respectively.) The money raised will be used to spay and neuter Kansas City area dogs and cats in need – a core mission of SNKC.

In addition to the pledge drive, SNKC is also hosting a winter donation drive. Along with gently used dog houses, the group is in need of the following items: dog and cat food (e.g., to stock SNKC’s “pet” food pantry); straw; leashes and collars; dog and cat toys; and, of course, monetary donations, which will help to pay for spay/neuter procedures, gas for transportation, new dog houses, and veterinary care for sick and injured dogs and cats. You can find more information on donating and view SNKC’s full wish list here.

Find-a-Friend Friday: Ali

November 12th, 2010 11:18 am by Kelly

Ali is a black, tan and white basset hound/dachshund mix – though her short, thick legs, long body, droopy ears and large head give her that classic wiener dog look.

I combed through dozens of Petfinder listings this morning, looking for THE perfect dog to introduce y’all to. Problem is, they’re all perfect! Every animal is special and unique in her own way, and the many canines whose stories I pored over today are no exception. Finally I settled on dear Ali, for no reason other than that she reminds me of my own dachshund friend Ralphie, who underwent surgery to remove his right eye yesterday (melanoma; we’ll know next week whether it was malignant) and is recovering on my lap as we speak. Point being, Ali is just one of thousands of wonderful, loving individuals in need of a home at this very moment. If you’re looking to welcome a new nonhuman friend into your family, please consider adopting – rescuing – one of these many Friends in need.

Okay, so. On to Ali, who is currently staying with Animals Best Friends in Independence, MO. Here’s what he foster peeps have to say about this lovely lady:

I know that look! Miss Ali is about to stir up some trouble.

Ali

This cuddle bug is Ali. She was born in 2006. She LOVES attention and to be loved on as much as you are willing to give her. She does great with other dogs and loves to sniff and play outside whenever she has the chance to… She is crate and house trained as well. She would make a great companion for someone. She is looking for that furever home. Please open your hearts and your home to this pretty girl.

If you are interested in meeting Ali, please go to WWW.ANIMALSBESTFRIENDS.ORG and fill out an application. If you are interested in possibly fostering ANY of our WONDERFUL pets, please go to our website listed above, and go to the tab “HOW TO HELP” and fill out a foster application and someone will get in contact with you! 🙂 Thank you very much for taking the time to check out our kids!!

Saturday Garbage Plate: It’s Vegan MoFo, yo!

November 6th, 2010 5:55 pm by Kelly

In honor of Vegan MoFo – the Vegan Month of Food, for all you rubes who have not been paying attention – our daily #nomz on Twitter is all #veganmofo, all month. Also: there are only so many vegan pizza recipes to go around.

Because I’ve had my hands full with mofo blogging, I don’t really have anything else to share with y’all this week. There are some pretty awesome contests and giveaways happening this month for VMF; I included a brief roundup as part of yesterday’s Friday Food post over at my other place, but for a complete list, check out the official thread at the PPK.

Also, have you heard about the Cooks Source kerfuffle? No? Background here; do follow the hilarity on Facebook and Twitter, if you can.

Nerd rage, ’tis a force to be reckoned with. Just ask Judith Griggs, she’ll tell you – and then charge you $130 for the privilege.
