Bark!

We made it to Bark! I just love the store and wish we had one nearby. I do a weekly stock-up on catfood, litter, bunny hay, etc., so it I had allowed our supplies to dwindle, knowing that I would be visiting. Bark! donated 10% of their sales today to Bright Eyes Sanctuary.

They are state-of-the-art. Our cats are mostly older and have various eating quirks (and Lord, they're all such pukers!), so it was nice to have a huge selection of non-grocery-store type cat foods to choose from. I'm hoping for the perfect food: something to soothe tender tums, something to fatten up the skinny ones and slim down the fat ones, and something they all like. I filled the trunk of my car with about 10 different brands. The lit case has fresh refrigerated food, which I didn't try because I didn't bring the ice chest and the temps were in the 80s today.

And that's Patti in the blue shirt. Better shots of us coming from Patti--I do better photographing needlework than people and places. I met such lovely people too--several other adoptive bunny families.

Here's little Earless Glenna bun. Also missing most of her teeth, which were surgically removed. Aside from her physical challenges, she's bright and lively and has attitude to spare.

The pink tissue is healthy tissue. Glenna Bun was a throw-away/stray, and she lost her ears to frostbite. I got to hold her on my lap; she's quite the cuddler, even with all those people around. Patti took some photos of us which I'll share another time.

These three are Patches (the mom) and Dario and Hazel. They are up for adoption, but as a family, as they are closely bonded.

Here's Audrey, enjoying a visit with Dario.

Audrey and I had a blast at Bark! I'm wiped out, so it's off to bed for me as soon as I can clean out the bun room. See the post below if you're here for needlework--2 posts today. Happy week ahead!

Did any of bunnies get adopted? Looks like a good pet store.

My vet put on the cats on a special diet food due to some tummy problem. It helped and the food was more reasonable then I thought it would be.

What a great trip! Thanks for sharing. We don't have anything like Bark! around here - too bad!

Thanks so much for posting all this Glenna and for making the trip out to meet your wonderful namesake. And for just being your generous self! Your enthusiasm is contagious and I can tell Glenna Bun was working you over with her world class charm. You are one shopping machine! Glenna bun is having more molars out on Friday, I'll keep ya posted. Bless you Glenna and thank you again so much for all your support! (and for adopting Pink)
