We hope, all our furriends had a wonderful and relaxed Thanksgiving!

This is our Black Friday Donation to Meowness. We have sent the human shopping all week, including Black Friday.

Petco and Petsmart are really the only places she accepts to go on Black Friday, normally she really really really would rather stay at home and cuddle with us.

We can’t blame her, we are total pros at snuggling! But when the Meowness kitties need help, we’ll have to send her shopping, you gotta have your priorities straight!

The items pictured retail for about $749 and our out of pocket expenses were $156.

Thankfully a lot of furriends helped us out with coupons right in time for Black Friday!!! Thank you very very much, you know who you are!!

We were able to get 627 lbs of litter, 219 lbs of dry food, 444 oz of wet food and 27 oz of treats.

Not bad for a week worth of shopping, or what do you think?

If you want to help Meowness too, you can do so while shopping from your couch in your jammies, by making them your designated charity on AMAZON smile which won’t cost you a penny. Or if you are going to buy a bunch of groceries for the holidays, you can head over to your Frys  shopper’s card account and add Meowness as your charity of choice and Frys will donate a small percentage of anything you buy to the rescue. Easy peasy!!

Of course, you can always head over to their website and send them some good old cash via paypal, we are sure that is highly appreciated as well!

We hope to get at least one more donation together in December, before we leave town again in January!

We’ll keep you posted on the progress!!

We are loving all the deals at the pet stores recently!! Today we received an email about Petco’s Friend and Family deal going on through 11/22. You can either print out this coupon or show it one your mobile device or you can use this link:
Valid 11/17 – 11/22: Friends & Family Event: 15% off supplies online & in-store! With Code: “Friends” -Exclusions Apply. and shop online.

You may have to reinsert the promo code “Friends” in case it is not showing automatically!

Happy Shopping!


If you are signed up with Petco PalsRewards, you may want to check your email.

We received an email today, with “Now your cat can try WholeHearted for free!” in the subject line.

Inside we found coupons for a free bag of wholehearted cat food and a free can of wholehearted cat food.

This is the new store brand food at Petco, which is replacing Dr. Foster & Smith.

Here’s the fine print on that coupon:

“Present printed coupon or mobile device and Pals Rewards card to receive this offer. Valid at Petco or Unleashed by Petco on in-stock products. Not valid on the purchase of gift cards, prior purchases, salon services, dog training, vaccination services, our Self-serve Dog Wash, online or with any other coupon offer. Void if copied, altered, transferred, and where prohibited by law. Single-use coupon, limit one per household. Selection varies by store. Expires: 11/29/17.

We’ll be sending the human to  Petco tomorrow for sure!

Happy Shopping furriends!

Today we sent the human to Meowness with the items pictured above.

On her way she also picked up an additional 4 jugs of Tidy Cats litter that are not pictured, because they were added to the donation after the picture was taken.

Meowness goes through lots of litter and food, so we were happy the human got to pick up a bit more on her way, taking advantage of the $10 off 30 offer that ended today.

This donation was roughly valued at $690, because some of those big bags in the picture were marked down to only $9.

If we were to consider full retail price, the value would be quite a bit higher.

Our out of pocket expense for this donation was only $74, most of which was tax.

We were thrilled with all the recent markdowns we were able to find in the stores.

It has been a while since our last pet supplies donation, as we were travelling with our humans, so we had to limit ourselves to monetary donations over the las few months. Cold hard cash certainly helps, but coupon shopping allows us to strech those dollars even more and we like to give both, money, supplies and when possible time. In case you’d like to help us donate more money without any additional cost to you, please check out our affiliate link page and see if there’s something you find useful. We promise any dollar coming in from any of these affiliate programs will go straight to Meowness.

Right now, we are back in Phoenix for a few weeks and we’ll sure send the human shopping a lot more often while we are in the valley.

Of course we’ll make sure to share any deals we find on the blog.


If you printed any of the recent Petco or Petsmart offers we posted a couple of days ago,

the in-store coupons for these can only be redeemed through today 11/5.

So if you were planning on sending the humans shopping, now is the time!!

Fill those bowls furriends, fur cheap!


If you are an American Express Cardholder, go ahead and check your Amex Offers under the Benefits tab.

Amex is currently offering a one time $5 statement credit to your enrolled card (you need to click “add to card”) when you spend a minimum of $25 at Petco.

This offer can be redeemed in-store or online until 12/31/2017.

Here’s a way to save 20% off the bat at Petco: Just buy a $25 Petco giftcard with your Amex after adding the offer.

You can do so at PETCO.com or in store.

In case you don’t have an Amex credit card yet, we strongly recommend the Blue Cash Preferred Card . This card gives you 6% off at grocery stores and 3% at gas stations among other things.

We usually use it when Frys or Safeway have pet store gift card promotions. This way we save an extra 6% on our pet store gift cards.

You’ll only get 1% cash back at Petco directly, but hey that $5 off off a $25 card and an additional 1% on top off that.

You can then turn around and use the giftcard with the $10 off 30 we posted earlier today for even more savings!!!

Fill those bowls furriends, fill those bowls!!
