The above bumper sticker is what inspired this post. About a year ago I became a foster parent to my beloved cat, Eloise Fleur. When we first brought her home she had feline leukemia, and feline AIDS. How could I walk away from her? She had been adopted when she was a smaller kitten, but when she hit the 5 month mark her "family" lost interest. She needed someone who would love her unconditionally - little did I know just how much of a joy she would be for me in my life. I know we have all seen the video, but I really do want to adopt all the cats in the world, and give them bow ties.

How hilarious it is that this post is titled "Puppies", and so far I've only talked about my cat?
 This adorable puppy is my most recent friend. Eloise isn't quite sure how she feels about him, but deep down, I know she loves him. If she didn't, she wouldn't have attempted to sit on him like she did last week. Love. He belongs to my neighbor, and is of chiwawa breed. He falls asleep in my hands, and absolutely melts my heart!

So, as you may have heard, Amber's Mouthwash 3 year anniversary is on the 23rd of this month. To celebrate, I am holding a giveaway for my readers! Please see video below:

    haha I have been very close to snapping at work also. And yes, I have a very odd taste in movies...I love romantic, sappy ones, but also horror movies!

    I have always said that my biggest goal in life is to save all of the homeless animals in the world.
    They will be my children.
    I don't think that is too much to shoot for.
