This is kind of a mish-mosh of things I think are important.
First of all, here is a great post from @InformedFerret. I thought I linked to this before but can't see where I did, so I'm belatedly linking now! Though the post is about ferrets, I think it's very important and applicable to ALL pet owners/lovers and brings up important issues we need to consider and be aware of. Education and responsibility are key!
Second, you may have noticed the Pierre chip in to the right here. Our friend @MarioDaCat wrote a post explaining our pal @PierrethePoodle is a bit unwell and could really use a bit of financial help to get better. Please consider chipping in. Also, adding the ChipIn to your blogs or linking to Mario's post via twitter would be a great help as well.
Thank you for taking the time to check out these Things That Are Very Important To Me. Until next time..!
