Santa Claws – A Success!

December 12, 2005

Santa Claws Yesterday, Cat, Kevin and I volunteered at Petsmart for their Santa Claws event (the one I made reference to in an earlier post). It was a great success and I, for one, had a blast! There were many dogs, and even a couple kitties, who had their picture taken with Santa Claws.

Cat and IOriginally, Kevin was supposed to be Santa. Unfortunately, the general manager of the store had been Santa all morning and didn’t want to hand over the role to Kevin. Eh, it was fine, though, because she also admitted the costume was pretty sweaty at that point. :surprise: After hearing that, Kevin was totally obliged to let her continue to play the role of Santa Claws.

According to the manager, it was one of their busiest days, yet. I don’t doubt that claim because there was no downtime during our shift. In about two and a half hours, we raised over $150 for Cats in Need.

By the time we left, we were all starving! Good thing we already had plans for dinner. We invited Cat over and had a delicious meal of salad and vegan black bean chili served in a sourdough bread bowl. Kevin baked chocolate chip cookies from scratch for dessert. We had coffee and learned how to play a new board game we got.

All in all, a very rewarding and relaxing day. I should plan days like this before all my finals! Oh, if you’re so inclined, you may click on the photos for a larger view.

Major cuteness!!! I’ve wanted to take my pets to get their pics taken with Santa but my little cairn terrier boy just comes unglued when any other pets are in the vicinity. :-( I think he needs to go back to school for some social skills… :-P

I’m glad the event was a success! BTW, I made a donation for your trip. It wasn’t much but I wanted to give since its the least I can do. I just think it is awesome that you give of your time and your talents as well as giving your love and compassion to those most innocent of creatures. Bless You!
