Big Al’s Pets Gift Card Giveaway

Our two cats, Princess and Misty, are my other babies. We brought them home over three years ago when they were just wee lil’ kittens. They’re sisters from the same litter, but are completely different in looks and personality. Princess is Miss Attitude. She won’t hesitate to give you a little swat if she doesn’t like what you are doing. On the hand, Misty, will lick your arm or leg like crazy. She’s strange like that.  Even with their little quirks, they have truly been a joy to have as part of the family.

Besides companionship, pets can have a beneficial impact on your health. I read an article on Woman’s Day about the health benefits of owning a pet. They listed 10 different ways that pets can actually improve your health. A few of them really hit home for me and made sense to my own personal situation. For instance, pets can help ease pain. They mention specifically chronic pain like migraines or arthritis. I’ve had chronic pain every day since December 11, 2005. Some days are really tough for me especially when I’m in the middle of a really bad pain flare.  My anxiety goes through the roof. Thinking about it now, I do feel calmer when I’m with my cats. Princess will come lie down with me in bed and watch TV. I love feeling her warmth and I find the sound of her purring quite soothing.

Pets are also said to improve mood. I would agree with that statement. The cats are always doing crazy things and making us laugh. One of my favourite type of pictures to take are ones of my cats. I enjoy sharing them on Facebook and Instagram with my friends. I was worried maybe I was sharing too much and people would think of me as the cat lady. I also share other people’s cats. Yeah maybe I go a little too far, but it’s all good.

I only recently learned about Big Al’s Pets and was super stoked to discover they did indeed ship to Canada. John has a salt water aquarium and we have to drive over 2 hours to the city to purchase food and accessories for the tank. I checked Big Al’s Pets and saw they sell loads of salt water food and other necessities. I’ve got the site bookmarked because it’s so much more convenient to shop online vs. driving 4 hours round trip!
