Pets, owners cheer cat food delivery
Two agencies, including Sherwood’s CAT, join forces to provide necessary items for home-bound

Here's an idea that should catch on nationally! Pet food for the homebound.

Thanks for posting this. I think it's a great idea that does need to be expanded and made nationwide. Pets are a basic necessity of living and should always be in any equation when programs are designed for seniors or others who may be homebound.

Pets from my experience can make all the difference to the elderly or homebound. Programs like this & help with vet visits & grooming could mean someone being able to have or keep an animal companion.

At the shelter that I adopted Foxy Lady from, they have a program to give food to the people who want to keep their pet but just can't afford the food each month. That is why I donate to this shelter because it helps out so many. Great thing to have the 'meals on wheels' be involved in helping the homebound pets also.

Here's an update on Cat Adoption Team and their cat food bank.  Amazing people make it all possible. Kudos to all who donate and distribute.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.
