One day a friend and I were driving in the next town over and saw a little black puppy on the side of the road. We pulled over, and I went over to meet him. He jumped in my lap, licked my chin, and landed belly up in my lap.
I was in love!

Clicks for Cat Castles
Today’s GreaterGood.com project will provide a hundred shelter cats with castles to call their own — a personal space where cats can relax and adjust to new surroundings at their own pace.
Pet food has long been a source of worry for pet owners and health officials. Reports of salmonella contamination are frequent and threaten not only animals eating the food but also the owners handling it. Nutritional deficiencies and toxins have been found in pet foods as well — including melamine, which caused a tragic loss of life in 2007.
The FDA is finally poised to enact stricter regulations but faces opposition from well-funded pet food manufacturers and importers.
While waiting for a forever home, shelter cats often live in small stainless steel cages with only the basic necessities.
These cardboard castles create a personal space where a cat can feel secure, whether safely tucked away behind the drawbridge or prominently perched atop the lookout platform.
