Showing Some Love!

Oh Dog! Happy Saturday! It’s Jen’s only day off this week, and she has committed to spending quality time with us! She’s also going to be a part of another transport today, helping this sweet kitty go to her new forever home.



And while we’re on the subject of adoration, you might want to check out this great contest Iams is sponsoring. Just share a photo and write in 500 characters or less about the unique relationship you have with your dog or cat and how Iams helps you show your love. Then submit your story following the steps on their Facebook page.  Entries will be accepted through March 3rd.

Iams will select 50 stories as semi-finalists. Ten finalists will win a case prize and free Iams for a year. Then in April, their Facebook fans will chose a grand prize winner.

  1. Indeed – awwwwww. How good is your Mom to be helping to get this cutie pie kitten to it’s forever home. Fantastic job. Going to hop over to that competition to see if it’s open to South Africa or not. Usually not but worth a look.

  7. Have a fun and snuggly day with Jen, Rumpy. Our vote is in. Yesterday, Mom tried to vote twice by accident. Oops. They wouldn’t let it go through.

    Love and licks,

  10. Hang in the Rumpy! You are so kind to let Jen leave on her only day off.
    That’s another reason everyone should vote for you!
    (Note: I’ve found many of my friends have stopped doing Facebook because they are mad at change/concerned about privacy issues – so that may be a reason?)
    HUGS for a real winner..you can share with Jen….and who ever seems to need one.

  15. That black kitten is adorable! Is she all black, or is there a touch of white somewhere on her body? I had a friend with a cat named Midnight. She was all black, even her whiskers and her claws were black! Black IS beautiful.

  19. I voted for you today Rumpy. But I have to say I’m disappointed that this looks like a cat blog today. I do hope that kitty gets a good forever home though.
