7 Ways to Help a Shelter Cat Without Adopting

Over the years I’ve often heard people say, “I’d love to help cats in shelters, but I just can’t adopt one.” The idea that adopting is the only way to help a shelter cat is a sad misconception. There are so many ways you can make an impact, and below I share seven of my favorite.

Rescue Stories - Nora: Found Her Forever Home in Brooklyn After Being Found Bleeding on the Streets of Iran

Hello, and Happy Friday! I am super excited to share today's rescue story with you! And it's our first story about a dog! We've been very good friends with Kai and his brother George on Facebook for a very long time, and our moms are friends, too. Kai and George's mom and dad adopted Nora, who was badly injured in Iran. Nora is a lucky dog - almost as lucky as her family is. I'm proud to introduce you to Nora!

Your Cat Will Love Being Groomed With HandsOn Gloves

I have two cats, but with all the fur dust bunnies on my hardwood floors (and furniture), you may think four or five live here. I can never understand how that much fur can come off of two short haired cats! One way to keep on top of the hair situation is to be sure I groom the girls regularly. 

Lola and Lexy are fairly easy to groom. I have to follow Lexy around the apartment a bit, but as long as I'm using a brush she likes she's okay with it. Lola likes a different brush, of course, so I often have to switch off or only groom one of them at a time. Thanks to the HandsOn Glove I can give both girls a good brushing while petting them.

Lola on the Road: The Windy Kitty Cat Café (Chicago, IL)

Welcome back to "Lola on the Road." After a little hiatus I'm back to bring you another cat café. In July I met up with a group of my great blogging friends for a weekend in Chicago to attend Meow Meetup, and I made sure I had time to squeeze in a trip to a cat café (or two! Stay tuned!) My first stop in Chicago was to The Windy Kitty Cat Café

Rescue Stories - Calvin: Grateful to the Ottawa Humane Society for Rescuing Him

Hello, and Happy Wednesday! We have another rescue story to share with you. Today our good friend Calvin, of Oliver and Calvin is sharing his story in his own words. We've been friends with Calvin, his brother Oliver, and their mom for many years on Facebook. We're so proud that he wanted to share his story with our readers.  I'm sure you'll love reading it. Okay, take it away, Calvin! 


It was my first day out in the adoption room at The Humane Society. I’d been here for about 6 weeks. Some nice people grabbed me off the street. I never knew any other place, and for sure didn’t know what home was.
