Lighten Your Cat’s Paw Print

May 18th, 2010

A few weeks ago, I told you about Purina’s donations to Keep America Beautiful.

Today is special though.

As part of the Together We Can Recycle campaign, Fancy Feast will donate $2 today (instead of just $1) for every recycling pledge they receive.

If you haven’t pledged to recycle your kitty’s wet food cans, do it now. It just takes a click! Also, please help spread the word on Twitter about the special donation offered today. I’m PeggyR in Twitterland.

I know what you may be thinking. Isn’t it better for the environment to just feed dry food instead of opening up all those cans? I’ve heard that argument several times, but it’s just not what’s best for kitty cat.

Felines aren’t natural water drinkers. They’d much rather eat a juicy mouse or other small prey in the wild. However, since they’re hanging out in your house, where it’s safe, they need help to get more water in their diet. That’s why my cat’s veterinarian said to feed wet food.

After my cat got sick from eating mostly a dry food diet a couple years ago, I’m a big believer in wet food for cats. Yet, those cans do add up. It’s most of what I take to recycling each week! And that’s exactly why it’s important for me to help lighten my cat’s paw prints on the earth by recycling and hopefully encouraging you to as well.

    We also buy the bigger cans, spoon out what the cats will eat, cover it and put it into the fridge. Less waste and recycling that way too.

    I open one can and feed both cats at once. That way, I don’t have to deal with them not liking the leftovers! I know, I baby them too much. 🙂
