We almost adopted a cat recently. We were planning to wait until we get a house, but while shopping for our parents’ pets, we saw this certain cat. He was 9 years old and was given up by his previous owners simply because they had a kid and didn’t want to take care of both.
That kind of story makes me a little upset. I would understand if the cat was attacking the kid, or if they had to move to a place that didn’t allow cats, but instead they decided to take the easy way out and abandon the family pet.
Our current apartment doesn’t allow dogs, which is what we really want. They do allow cats, although they want it to be de-clawed. That’s really not something either of us are comfortable with. We were going to try to work with the anti-cruelty society, but when we called them we got the news that the cat was adopted already.
Honestly, that’s okay with me. We were disappointed, but the most important thing is that the older cat was able to find another home. That’s what it’s all about.
And that’s what trading cards is all about. Making sure something that someone doesn’t want, finds a good home. That’s why trading is a bloggers’ best friend.
Night Owl is good at delivering some of those unwanted cards to people’s doors with his wings. Like this other best friend.
I don’t know how many of you watch Too Cute on Animal Planet, but they recently had an episode with Boxer puppies and now I can only think of the half-sized Peanut they showed. That episode also had Cairn Terrier puppies, which is what my parents have and is why I’m looking for another copy of the Toto card from 2011 A&G.
While I’m on the subject, here are all the puppy cards I bought from our case break. So many great breeds. We may end up with a real Boston Terrier one of these days.
Back to the trade. It wasn’t all about four-legged animals. Greg threw in a few two-legged ones as well.
Let’s see if I can do this right.
MIIIIIINNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIII! How’d I do?
Look at this. Red, white, and blue, just like an American card should be. What’s that? It’s a UK mini. As I was saying, red, white, and blue like a British card should be.
TRIIIIIIPPPLLL-oh, forget it. I think we need a bit more head room on Tony, guys. It’s slightly interesting to see the ball, but you know he’s not going to catch it, so crop a little tighter and keep us guessing and hoping.
Huh-huh. Premier But.
As far as I know, this Autograph Series doesn’t have any actual autographs, it’s just a facsimile on the back. FT is looking up in amazement. Still, it’s a food issue oddball, which I absolutely love.
“Remember that one time, back in 1992, when they claimed it was an ‘Autograph Series’ but…I didn’t sign any cards. Wait! This isn’t Chicago!”
Okay, one last four-legged animal in the form of an elephant. An elephant that will now be on the Athletics’ spring training caps.
That’s what we call full circle, my best friends.
