Kids Helping Cats

Coins for Cats and Cans for Cats: two easy ways for children of all ages to help the big cats! 

 

coinsforcats.jpgCoins for Cats! I recently emptied a little piggy bank I throw all my change in when I come home. It wasn’t even full, maybe half so. It added up to $106! That little bit of effort ended up being a nice chunk of change. I gave it to Yogie and Friends. This is a neat way for kids to be able to help the animals with very little effort.  

Cans for Cats! Kids can also help by collecting cans and taking them to the local recycling center for cash and this can also add up to a nice piece of change for the cats. It’s something kids can do to help go green and help the cats all at once.

Snaggle Tooth

Snaggletooth african lion Snaggle Tooth and two other African lions (Pantheras Leo), Snaggle Pus and Leo came to us from Texas on in July of 2002.  They all lived in a garage for 17 years. Yes, 17 years!

african lionSadly we had to euthanize Snaggle Tooth in June of 2003. Years of neglect and poor nutrition weakened her spine and she lost the use of her rear legs. Tim and I spent a few moments to say our good byes to her. I was scratching her head and figured she was probably sick of my attention. I moved away to let her rest. She then crawled over to me and rubbed her head against me for more. That was my undoing. Lions are very social creatures.

I had just given each cat a treat of a piece of chicken. Moses sounds like he’s barking a little.
