Spoil Your Pets Like They Deserve During Pet Appreciation Week + Win a $25 Pet Supplies Plus Gift Card! – Ends 6/15/14 (US)

I participated in this program on behalf of Pet Supplies Plus and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

One of the things I definitely got from my mom is a love for animals and pets. My first pet that I remember is Silver, a stray cat that we started taking care of. Then a couple years later when I was in first grade we got my first dog, Spot. We were obviously known as the house that would feed any hungry animal as we often had a stray cat or dog that we would care for over the summer until they decided to move on else where.

Marvin loves to stalk, and, eventually…, attack as seen with his new toy from Pet Supplies Plus.

Throughout my years as a child and teen, we had a couple other dogs and cats join our family as it was very important to us to open our hearts to care for more animals as we could. It breaks my heart that there are so many dogs, cats and other animals out there that have been abandoned and/or abused, left without good homes. That’s why even though I would love to have a purebred Bengal or Savannah cat one day, Mr. Savvy and I chose to build our cat family with rescues. And you know what, they’re all pretty awesome and have their own uniquely entertaining personalities.

Gotta love the curious cat that can’t even wait until the toy is all put together. ;)

In recent years as more comes to light about our pet’s health and wellness, it’s become very important to us to take the best care of our cats, and spoil them as much as reasonably possible, especially as they start to get older. That’s why I’m happy to be partnering with Pet Supplies Plus to celebrate Pet Appreciation Week that’s running June 1 – 7. This week is all about celebrating the things we love about our pets while giving them even more love and affection than normal. It’s also a great time to think about our pet’s health and wellness, which is why we’ve decided to switch our cats over to more of a wet food diet even though love dry food more.

Wet grain-free cat food has become our #1 choice to feed our cats, so I’m so glad they carry it at Pet Supplies Plus.

To me, it’s important to get supplies from local stores that aren’t super commercialized and all about the money. I love being able to go into a pet supplies store and meet friendly employees who are more than willing to discuss your pets with you and offer any advice and suggestions. This is why I really love Pet Supplies Plus as their stores are large enough to have any supplies you’d ever possibly need, but they still have that at home feeling because of their wonderful employees. Plus, I have to admit I think it’s pretty awesome that Pet Supplies Plus partners with local animal rescue organizations, hosts adoption events regularly, and even organizes fundraising activities to help support local animal shelters and charities.

I think Chewie might have liked these treats just a bit too much. ;)

I left the room for a moment and came back to Marvin getting inside their box of Pet Supplies Plus goodies. I hope your pets love their products as much as our cats have!

We are all animals lovers here, so I have a zoo at my house. I have 2 dogs named Toby and Sushi. Toby is a 3 year old Shih Tzu and Sushi is a 14 year old peekipoo. Both girls are very loyal, smart and sweet. I have 4 indoor only cats whose names are Chester Ann Louise, Bubba, Little and Ryder. They are all rescues and very spoiled! I also have 2 small exotic critters, Opi and Gia the sugar gliders. They are both very spoiled, too. They love running on their wheel, swinging in the coconut swing and eating cherries, watermelon and boiled chicken strips. I love my furbabies very much and so glad they are in my life.
