Today whee are doing a slightly different post. With all the negativity in the world recently whee would like to ask you to please consider joining us in doing something positive, in the spirit of Christmas giving.
It’s called “Christmas Crates” and you can read more about it here.
Essentially it is a reversed advent calendar. Instead of opening a door and getting something every day of advent, you put something in a box instead for a charity or cause of your choice. This time of year is a difficult time for anyone, animal or hooman, that needs a charity to help them survive and get by. So whee would like to ask you to pledge (using the link here) to make a Christmas Crate of your own for a charity or a cause local to you and/or close to your heart.
You could collect blankets, food, bedding, and toys for a animal shelter.
You could collect cans, packets and non perishable foods for a local food bank.
You could collect coats, gloves, socks, hats and unopened toiletries for a homeless charity.
It can be for any worthy cause you can think of. Simply find out what they are looking for and put it in the crate every day of December to donate on Christmas Eve. You can do it at home with your family, with a team at your place of work, at a local church or club. Anywhere where people want to come together to help others.
Whee really hope you will all join us in doing this. Even if you cannot get involved yourself, please share this to let others know about it.
Don’t forget to “pledge” your crate on the link above to show you are going to be doing it and who you’re doing it for.
Thank you, and our post will be back to normal tomorrow!

You may remember our Don’t Parsley Me By Pigture Contest whee ran over the course of last wheek. Well after much thought and deliberation whee have finally picked our winners and created the video. Frankly you are all winners, you have found such wonderful homes after awful starts and whee couldn’t be happier for you.
However our winner and opening our video is the gorgeous Kaci from kylascott:
Our runner up, and closing our video, is Donna from weliveinaflat showing that coming from a broken home doesn’t mean you have to stay broken hearted.
So remember, don’t parsley those rescue pets by. Give them a second chance and you won’t be disappointed ^_^
Please share this and get hoomans to think rescue when looking for a pet.
Happy Monday efurryone
Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil
ps. Two kitties desperate for a loving home need our help. Don’t parsley them by . . .

Hiya efurryone. Firstly you haven’t heard from us two for awhile but here whee are enjoying parsley in the garden today:
This leads neatly onto our new contest. Don’t Parsley Me By. Mummy has decided she needs something as a distraction for her and what better way to keep her busy than with a pigture contest!
Whee would like you to all send us your pigtures of your rescue pets. Whether you adopted them from an official rescue (or shelter), took them from a bad home or situation or saved them from a terrible fate. Whee would like you to send their pigtures with a line about what they came from. The pigture can be of them looking pleading or really enjoying their new homes. (Sorry for anyfurry who doesn’t have a rescue pet, whee will have other pigture contests soon) If you don’t have a rescue pet you can send us a pigture of your pet campaigning for animals in rescues (be as inventive as you like!)
This was inspired by Mummy hearing a song that made her think of rescue pets. The song is called Lonely No More by Clay Aiken. What whee would like to do is, collect as many as whee can and put them into a video to this song to raise awareness of animals in need.
You can send your pigtures to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them to us @HutchAGoodLife (afraid whee aren’t too savvy with other social networks just yet so just these this time!) Please use the subject title “Don’t Parsley Me By Contest” for email entries and mention the contest in tweets.
The closing date is Thursday 12th September at 1pm (GMT aka UK time) Please spread the word, whee want to get as many hoomans and furries involved as possible. If you have more than one rescue pet you can enter a maximum of three pigtures (all must be of different pets).
Depending on how many entries, whee hope to be able to include efurryone! The pigture that is the overall winner will be the opening pigture for the video and the runner up will be the closing pigture.
So hoomans get snapping and pets get posing.
Whee can’t wait to see your entries! Happy Friday
Buddy & Basil
