As many geeks would agree, pets are pretty awesome. In particular, a large percentage of nerds seem to have a love of cats (even if we’re just talking LOLcats). I’m definitely a cat person, and not at all ashamed to admit that I love to spoil my two furbabies. So when I had the opportunity to review something from Big Paw Designs, I couldn’t say no! This site has been making collar tags, treats, toys, and more for pets since 2002.
Before I even go into what I was sent, what makes Big Paw Designs awesome is that not only are you treating your pet to something nice, you’re helping not-so-fortunate pets. They have two different shops to help two charities; a portion of sales from each shops goes to help animals. First is the Romeo Love shop, which benefits cats.
I got to review a collar charm from the Shop benefitting Used Dogs Rescue in New Orleans. Though I don’t have a dog, my cat Loki fits the bill pretty well (he chases his own tail, drinks out of the tub and sinks—we keep him away from the toilet, he loves licking people, and if we let him he would be living outside).
I have to tell you: It’s beautiful! Very well made, perfect-looking (even better than the picture on the site), beautifully cut, and I’m sure it will make a wonderful addition to Loki’s collar when we get him a new one. All in all, I’m very impressed with the charm, and it’s also heartwarming to know that every purchase helps an animal!
The very same charm I received is listed on the website for only $10. Considering how high of quality they are and the fact that buying it benefits other pets, that’s not much of a cost.
If you want to check out the shop, go to Big Paw Designs. There’s also a coupon code good until January 15th, 2011 that’s good for 35% off any purchase! Just enter code BLOGHOLIDAY at checkout.
