I found this video and thought it was so cute and funny, so I decided to share it with all of you. I've never seen any other cat do this!
(And thanks so much for the donations! Because it was Christmas, I decided to donate all of it to the ASPCA).

every shelter is full - we are lost, but not found,
Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare,
we hope every minute that someone will care,
They'll come to adopt us and give us the call,
"Come here, Max and Sparkie - come fetch your new ball!!
But now we sit here and think of the days...
we were treated so fondly - we had cute, baby ways,
Once we were little, then we grew and we grew
now we're no longer young and we're no longer new.
So out the back door we were thrown like the trash,
they reacted so quickly - why were they so rash?
We "jump on the children:, "don't come when they call",
we "bark when they leave us", climb over the wall.
We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed,
now we suffer the consequence of the errors THEY made.
If only they'd trained us, if only we knew...
we'd have done what they asked us and worshiped them, too.
We were left in the backyard, or worse -let to roam-
now we're tired and lonely and out of a home.
They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-bye...
"Maybe someone else will give you a try."
So now here we are, all confused and alone...
in a shelter with others who long for a home.
The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat,
with so many to care for, they can't stay to chat,
They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer...
we know that they wonder how long we'll be here.
We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads...
of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds.
Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears -
our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear.
If you can't adopt us and there's no room at the Inn -
could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year -
can you give more than hope to everyone here?
Please make a donation to pay for the heat...
and help get us something special to eat.
The shelter that cares for us wants us to live,
and more of us will, if more people will give.

Also, you can shop on the Animal Rescue Site, where every product you purchase funds at least 14 bowls of food for animals in need. In addition, the site offers free clicks, which helps animals as well.
On a final note, here is a quote that should inspire us even more to help animals in need:
"I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry. "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?" God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. "I have done something," he replied. "I created you." ~ Jim Willis

Many people take home a new pet, only to find out later on that they might have chosen the wrong animal. As a result, it ends up going back to the shelter and becomes yet another unwanted pet. To prevent this from happening, you should look into your lifestyle and get to know the animal more before deciding to adopt.
Some things to consider include:
- Finances: How much money can you spend on your pet? Can you afford vet bills in the situation that your pet develops health problems, in which the tests and treatments can be extremely expensive?
- Time: Are you working a 12-hour job or are away on business a lot? Do you know anyone who is willing to care for your pet while you are away, such as on vacation? If you are looking to get a dog, would you have enough time to walk it regularly and play with it, especially if it is a high energy breed?
- Space: How large is the home you reside in? How large is your yard, and is it fenced? Would your home be more appropriate for a cat, small breed of dog, or one that is low energy, or is it large and "spacey" enough to accommodate a larger dog breed or a breed that is known to have a high energy level?
- Kids and other pets: Is the particular animal you are seeking to adopt good with young children or any of the additional pets that reside with you?
- Allergies: Do you or anyone else who resides with you have allergies to certain animals, especially dogs and cats?
- Are you able to own a pet where you currently reside: Does your rental community (if you live in an apartment, condominium, or other rented home) prohibit pets or have restrictions on which animals and how many they allow?

Cats and kittens (and dogs do, too) love a bowl of milk, but regular cow's milk is difficult for them to digest. CatSip is milk that is much easier for your pet to digest because it is treated with an enzyme called lactase that breaks down the milk sugar. It also contains taurine, an essential nutrient that aids in the heart and eye health of cats.
Once opened and refridgerated, CatSip will last just as long as regular milk. It can be given to dogs and cats at any time of day as a healthy snack that they will love without any digestive upset later on.

There are so many homeless pets out there, and although you cannot help all of them, you can save at least one. Even if you do not have a lot of time on your hands, you can still help out in some way.
A few ways you can do your part include:
- Donating pet items and volunteering at your local animal shelter: Animal shelters are always in need of various items, including pet food, treats, blankets, towels, cat litter pans, cat litter, and grooming items such as combs, brushes, and shampoo. Volunteers are also very much in need, and you will feel good doing it.
- Becoming a pet foster parent: Many animal rescue organizations need people to foster abandoned, ill, baby animals, and those recovering from surgery or some other procedure. You can contact your local humane society, SPCA, or animal rescue organization, where you will receive an application and training.
