Cat Care

Ways to De-Clutter While Doing Some Good


Are your closets and cupboards crowded with stuff you don’t need, from extra towels to perfectly nice toys your cat simply didn’t take to? Why not take stock of the excess and create some room in your life—all while doing some good? Most shelters and rescue groups are delighted to receive gently used donations.

Items commonly needed by animal shelters:

1. Toys

2. Blankets

3. Kennels and crates

4. Newspaper

5. Beds

6. Towels

7. Food and treats

8. Leashes and collars

9. Laundry detergent

10. Office supplies

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.

    I have made it a habit to routinely go through my closets and bag up anything I havent really used. I give it all to the Humane Society’s Thrift Shop, which is where I bought a lot of the stuff anyway! Doing this cleanses my soul and I know it helps some animals along the way. I wish I could give more, but I cannot. I do what I can.
