REASONS TO ADOPT A PET ON GIVING TUESDAY

My wife and I have three cats from the ASPCA. That's probably one too many, but still... they are pretty awesome.
  1. They sit in funny positions... like this...
  2. ... and this...
  3. ... and this.
  4. Sometimes all three of them chill on the bed together. Which is nice.
  5. They are reasonably tolerant of our baby, who is a menace.
  6. Here's Gus, guarding the crib.
  7. Here's Ruby, stealing the kid's throne.
  8. Here's me, trying to teach Xander how not to tear the kitties' faces off.
  9. Bottom line: rescue animals are a huge value add. For pretty much free, you can save a life - and vastly improve your own.
