Hot Dogs in the Strip

It’s a street fair for the animals this Saturday as the Animal Rescue League takes over a block of the Strip District! Join us from noon to 7:00 p.m. at 2701 Penn Avenue.

Seventeen vendors will be offering things for your pets, things for you, information and of course the ARL will be there with cats and dogs who are ready to go home with you!

The Animal Rescue League is also offering games and crafts for kids, and several musicians will sit in during the day.

I’ll be right next to Karen Litzinger, author of Heal Your Heart, and I’m looking forward to seeing a few other animal-themed vendors I haven’t seen yet this year.

If you’re in Pittsburgh, I hope to see you there! And I hope to have great adoption numbers to report, too!

The event benefits both the shelter and the ARL Wildlife Center.


What Are We Doing Up Here?

What are we doing up here?

Us? Up here? What are we doing up here? Well…we thought we’d flip through your CDs and see if there is anything more interesting to listen to than your boring classical music. We’ll try not to knock them off the top of the entertainment center.

(What they’re thinking is, “We’re a couple of cats, what do you think we’re doing up here?”)

Giuseppe and Jelly Bean think they are pretty smart in discovering the top of the entertainment center. Honest, I thought I could have a small area in the house where I could store things my clever kitties couldn’t get into. I actually had the front edge blocked off so they couldn’t jump up, but someone decided to risk it and discovered the world of my hats and baskets and CDs and other stuff I’d tossed up there. What was I thinking?
