Yes, one person can make a huge difference in the world. In 2008 Mimi Ausland began a website: Free Kibble Kat, dedicated to feeding animals in shelters across the country. As she said, “Every dog and cat deserves a decent dinner.” Her idea was to have people come to the website and answer a trivia question, usually about cats (sometimes about dogs or other animals). Every answer, correct or not, creates a donation of ten pieces of kibble to feed shelter animals.
Doesn’t sound like much? It’s already added up to over 9 million meals provided for those animals, and more on the way. Her website is one of the internet’s most-visited places, as she posts not just the daily trivia question, but photos and links to other sites which help our friends in fur.
During this busy holiday season, can you spare a minute to feed a cat or dog as it waits hopefully for a forever home? Better yet – bookmark the site and play once a day. Abishag, Ira and Kezia all thank you for helping make a difference – with one daily click.
