Speaking of Diego, he’s been miffed that I didn’t give him his own SIGIL. Jeez! So now “Lord Greychin” sports a nifty new sigil on his page.

D-Day: 3.29.2017

D-Day
n. the day on which an important operation is to begin or a change to take effect

Valentino – then (2.14.17) and now (3.28.17)

3.28.2017 post on LNPB:
“Happy Tuesday from Valentino! Moments from sure death to the gift of life, love and the promise of tomorrow, this fella knows miracles happen every day right here at Leave No Paws Behind, Inc.! Valentino’s ‘tail’ of rescue is nothing short of miraculous! One phone call, one photo, and one tiny little meow for help is all it took and the rest is HISTORY! Valentino became an overnight sensation, and after almost 2 months in the hospital our little boy is heading home to our loving and life saving foster mommy where he will continue to heal! I cannot thank DVM Michelle Dulake and the entire staff at The Pet Doctors of Sherman Oaks for the wonderful care they have given him and for bringing back to life! I want to also thank everyone who donated for his medical care and a very huge and heart felt thank you to Elaine Seamans for stopping at his cage, listening to his cries for help and then reaching out to him and letting LNPB be your first call to help. It takes a Village to save a life and here at LNPB you folks are all simply the best! Thank you so much for your continued support and for all you do for the animals. tw, LNPB”

When you shop Amazon, ask them to
donate 10% of your purchase to Leave No Paws Behind
(this doesn’t cost you a thing)!!

“Happy Wet Nose Wednesday from our boy Valentino. He is living the dream. Valentino is still deemed contagious, (ringworm is a BEAST) and will remain so over the next 3-4 weeks, so careful measures must be taken and he must remain isolated, ideally on tile as it is easy to keep clean. Our loving and life-saving foster mommy received a ‘book’ of after-care and cleaning instructions which did not deter her one bit AND as you can see, he will not lack for love and attention! She tells us he had a peaceful night and that he is happy, content, bright, alert and his appetite is GREAT LOL!

We would not be surprised if, thanks to Valentino, Petco has a sudden rush on this cat scratching bed! Hmmmmm maybe we can get them to donate 1 or 10 to Valentino!”

Want to have a Valentino couch to call your own? Well, you can purchase them on line from Petco; HOWEVER as it stands right now they are in stock! You can also go directly into the store where they are cheaper. Tell them Valentino from Leave No Paws Behind, Inc. sent you LOL!

SFFGS Countdown: 10 days

San Francisco Flower & Garden Show
April 5-9, 2017

Whether you’re growing edibles, flowers & shrubs, or a combination of both, the show is always packed with great ideas on how to make the most of your growing area (and for those of us living in apartments, that means a small patio or balcony). Vertical gardening has been “in” for a few years and I don’t expect that to change. Around the web, gardeners are coming up with very creative ways of growing plants in less space (the last photo is from MY Concrete Jungle, 2013)
