Extraordinary Men and Cats (and a giveaway)

This post is sponsored by Purina, who is providing the calendar for our giveaway.
PPC EMWC Stamp LogoPurina Pro Plan set out to shred perceptions of both traditional cat food and the typical cat owner with the Purina Pro Plan #MenAndCatsContest, for the launch of Savor Shredded Blend.

Shredded Blend is an all-new mealtime experience that combines crunchy kibble and tender meaty shreds to provide both extraordinary nutrition and exceptional taste. The best of both dry and wet foods to delight your cat!

Cat lovers were asked to share a photo of an extraordinary man and his cat on Instagram or Twitter. 11 winners were selected that best captured the relationship between man and cat and will represent each month of the 2016 Extraordinary Men and Cats Calendar, along with proud cat guy and “Devious Maids” actor Gilles Marini.

This isn’t just a lot of great looking guys and fabulous felines though! The calendars will be donated as a fundraising initiative to Purina Pro Plan Rally to Rescue, a network of hundreds of small rescue groups nationwide, allowing them to raise money for their organizations as they work to give all cats the love, care and forever homes they deserve. And we have a calendar to giveaway to a lucky reader!

Darling felt “internet animal” ornaments benefit the ASPCA

It had to be done. I just had to have these darling felt ornaments from West Elm. Not only are they cute, and will look perfect on our tiny live tree this year, but they help the animals of the ASPCA too.


Inspired by some of Instagram’s most famous pets, like adorable Manny the Frenchie, West Elm created these ornaments to support the ASPCA®. For every ornament purchased, they donate $1 to the animal welfare organization. The full set includes Manny the Frenchie, Kokoro + Chibi, Nala the Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, and Cookie.

Ornaments not your thing? They also have tea towels that feature the internet stars.

We weren’t compensated in any way for sharing this, we just really love them and the fact that they help animals.
