And today I'm excited to share that the annual Pens for Paws Auction is only one week away!
Headed by my friend Angelica R. Jackson, writer, blogger, and all-around extraordinary person, the event raises funds for Fat Kitty City, a no-kill, cage-free cat sanctuary in El Dorado Hills, California, that also rescues dogs (as foster homes allow). Click here for more information about Fat Kitty City.
The auction begins on March 12 and runs through March 16 at Pens for Paws.
