Loving a pet is always difficult when it's that animal's time to die, and there are pets I feel like I still haven't recovered from losing in my life. So it's no wonder that when a pet that's become an Internet sensation dies we all feel it hard.
If you've ever spent any time around cats in boxes, you know how adorable they are, and it's one of the most fun things you'll ever get to witness. At my house, we often just put boxes or paper bags out for the cats to run into, slide around and jump in and out of. There is a cat in a box behind me this very moment. The box was supposed to be for books I'm getting rid of, but NOPE, now it is CAT BOX.
IKEA is relatively new where I live. I remember traveling and discovering the store, and everyone who lived nearby couldn't believe I'd never heard of it. This became a common theme in the area, which became akin to another planet to me, and where I once thought I'd love to live became a place I definitely didn't connect with. Still, I did admire the company itself and now that one has been built where I live, I do like to go now and then and check out what's new.

Whether your pet tree frog blends in so well to his environment that you can rarely see him in his enclosure or your cat tends to blend in with the rug when she makes herself flat against the floor, you’re probably no stranger to animal camouflage.
In honor of World Animal Day today, I’d like to invite you to take action with me. First I opened all of the windows in my house for the cats to enjoy the gorgeous autumn weather, then I gave them each some treats. Now I’ll be taking action as a voice in support of the animals, and I hope you’ll join me in the quick action links below!
Stop the Polar Bear Fur Trade
Did you know that people actually like to kill polar bears and sell their body parts and fur? It’s really hard for me to believe, especially since we’re already destroying their home with global warming and they are already endangered as it is. Click here ask President Obama to make protecting these bears a priority and to push for greater protections beneath the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
