Happy Friday everyone! The work week is finally drawing to a close and the weekend beckons weary bodies to its warm embrace. May everyone enjoy a nice weekend of staying up late and getting into all sorts of trouble followed by sleeping in till noon.
Today’s post features a video with a message. Filmed on behalf of the Winnipeg Humane Society Andy Hill, son of Winnipeg’s legendary furniture huckster Nick Hill, invites everyone to “Come on Down” to the Humane Society for its annual Kitty Midnight Madness.
On a serious note the Winnipeg Humane Society is stuffed to the rafters with cats and kittens this time of year and is looking for good homes for many cute and cuddly animal friends. If you find yourself in need of a fuzzy animal companion and are in a position to care for dog or cat please consider the Humane Society before hitting one of the many pet stores in the city. These fluffy buddies have just as much love to give as the store-bought kind and are just as deserving of a good home.
So Come on Down to the Winnipeg Humane Society and find yourself a new friend.
The Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way just off Waverley St in South Winnipeg. Its hours of operation are Mon-Fri (Noon till 8 pm), Sat (10 am till 6 pm), Sun (Noon-6 pm)
If you are in need of new furniture head on down to Kern-Hill Furniture 660 Nairn Ave. Just tell Andy that Bob sent ya!
My beloved 16 year old Burmese went to sleep forever last Friday. I’m not ready to have a new kitty yet
My condolences to your family over the loss of your beloved friend.
Losing a 16 year member of the family is hard.

THANK YOU for posting this! Yes, don’t breed or buy while shelter pets die. I adopted my last kitty (now in kitty heaven) and she was the sweetest cat in the world. That’s my PSA for the day. And that is a great video!
I have never been an fan of pet stores, the whole idea of selling an intelligent living creature just doesn’t sit right with me. When we have the problems with pet overpopulation that we do it only seems natural to be part of the solution.
People think that shelter animals are inferior, I disagree. They are just as lovable and cuddly as the ones in a “Store”.
Loved it!!!!!!! Both my kitties are rescue cats. Picked up my big guy at the rescue centre 3 years ago, he is the sweetest cat around and the little guy (not so little anymore) was picked up at the vets as a kitten just before they were to hand over the foundling to the rescue centre. All we we wanted to do was to buy cat food and we came home with a kitten… the people at the vet didn’t have to try too hard… They make us smile every day.
Funny how that works eh? Go in to buy food end up walking out with a new friend. Good on you Ivy for rescuing a little furry buddy.
It seems that so far today I am preaching to the choir about adopting a friend. My readers are the best!
Awww, that’s a bunch of cute kitties! LOL, I’m going to share that, even though I’m in Florida, I’m sure I’ve gotta have some facebook friends that are that far north. That vid is hilarious!
Share away! Feel free to distribute at your leisure. I can always use the traffic on my site.
Really liked your piece on good guys the other day. As a reformed bad boy it really spoke to me.
And that’s adorable.
I agree with SingleGirlie – always adopt!!!
Who says I still don’t have it? Post a vid of kittens gone wild and all the girls come running! God I love this blog!
But, ahem, seriously do adopt a pet instead of buying one from a store, the ones you rescue are saved from pet death row and that makes them all the more lovable.
There are also many rescue pets at reputable pet food stores and at no kill shelters so please check those out as well.
