A Little Help for a Friend

Many of you are familiar with Baby Patches and her store NipandBones.com. Mom and Dad bought me the cat tree I love so much from there and then, when I lost it in a fire, BP let them order another one even though it wasn't available on the website anymore.



Well, Nip and Bones is struggling at the moment. Like many other small businesses in this economic environment, it can be tough to keep going. The good news is with the help of friends, we can keep them going! Here's how:

SHOP NIP AND BONES
This is my favorite way to help. You're giving your business directly to the shop AND you're getting cool stuff at the same time. Mom just bought a cleaning kit and filters for Harvey's water fountain from there. Guess what? Both items were cheaper than at the local pet store.

MAKE A DONATION
You can give at Baby Patches' GoFundMe page here. Cash is always helpful!

BID ON ITEMS AT CATHY KEISHA'S AUCTION
Our pal Cathy Keisha is auctioning items with the proceeds going directly to Baby Patches. Check out her blog to see what you can get your paws on!

SPREAD THE WORD
Maybe you have a pal that doesn't know about Nip and Bones. Maybe someone doesn't know they're struggling. Tweet, blog, Facebook, whatever. Just tell people.


ATTEND THE CHIEF KIT PAWTY
Attend the online pawty this Saturday, July 7th. Prizes will be given and fun will be had all in the name of helping our furriend! More info and RSVP here.

I know Mom has plans to buy some more stuff for Harvey and she will buy what she can from Baby Patches. I hope she can continue to buy from her for a long, long time!

  1. I tweeted your link. Hope it helps at least a little. If everyone tweeted it... well... that would be great, wouldn't it?

  3. Good job. I've had so many appoiuntments lately that I've fallen behind in the tweeting and promoting. Like Cathy said, I wish we could find a permanent solution - we're doing bandaids one at a time. SIgh. I'm going over there to get some cleaning supplies for the Drinkwell also. Good idea.
