The BigCRUMBS Website Deal

Okie dokie. Thanks to a friend of mine at Facebook, ChrisTina Shakus, told me about this place to join up. The idea is that one can shop at their favorite on-line sites and earn some "cash back" every time you purchase something. One has to do it though via the BigCRUMBS site which has links to those favorite on-line stores like Walmart,, Best Buy, you name it. And yes there's also the referral thing, so the more people you have "under" you have gotten to sign up under your referral, then I also get a percentage as well. I was never really big with the whole referral thing, but hell, I'm willing to give it a shot. Here's my referral link so you can join up:

I only wish I had known about it sooner, since I had only just bought some kitty food for my cat Kissy at Walmart...oh well, next time!

My Zazzle Shop

I have already mentioned a little bit about my Zazzle shop where I sell print on demand items. I sell a bit of everything and keep adding to my "shop". One of my desired goals is to earn money from sales and have the proceeds to to animal rescue efforts and causes.

Here's is the flash panel that shows all my current products:

make custom gifts at Zazzle


Okay, I'm like a lot of pet owners who, yes, I celebrate my pet's birthday, and in this case my highly pampered "baby" named Kissy. October 21, 2012 marked her 13th birthday. I actually created a "special" event over at Facebook where my friends could "celebrate" with her. I even provided a "wish list" link to, where if some of my friends wanted to, they could buy birthday gifts for her. So in my wish list I posted items such as catnip toys, bags of her favorite dry cat food, and her all time favorite, her Fancy Feast moist canned food. Oh, and needless to say, she's a very fussy eater and ONLY prefers certain flavors, such as Savory Salmon, Ocean Whitefish & Tuna, and Cod, Sole & Shrimp flavors. Heaven forbid I get anything else as she doesn't like and won't eat it.

The thing is that I also decided to order a case of 24 cans of those flavors, and it was one of those, like "duh" moments of why didn't I order pet food sooner? Near me in my local store, one can, one can mind you is $1.19! The discovery I made was that by ordering on-line, not only could I get an entire case of 24 cans and save myself the task of lugging home so many cans, but more important, even with shipping costs, the all around cost was a lot cheaper.

Then I actually came across another discovery. Instead of ordering from, I found the same case of 24 cans of her favorite flavors was a few bucks cheaper at's website. So naturally I ordered from there. And amazingly I didn't have to wait long for the order to arrive.

And yes, some of my friends did actually order a few goodies. One person ordered a 16-lb. bag of her favorite dry food that was on the wish list, which you can see here.

Then another friend sent me these treats to Kissy, including some cute catnip toys.

Just a day before it was to be the birthday girl's birthday I took a "candid"photo of her with my phone. As you can see, she's on my unmade bed...which by the way, usually remains unmade for many hours after I get up. Heaven forbid, I disturb her, as she does love snoozing on it...and only a fellow pet owner will know what I mean by that.

And you just know of course I made up a special card for her that I designed.

Sighs..such a poor deprived kitty, right? As I write this at this moment, Kissy is on my bed, and yes still unmade, sound asleep and snoring a storm.

Ah the life of a pampered cat. I should be so "deprived"

My Zazzle Shop

Well for a few months now I've been tinkering around with a shop over at Zazzle which I called "pyewacketcreations". At Zazzle one can create a myriad of products using their own photos, drawings, paintings or graphics.

Here's the link to my Zazzle shop:


To give you an idea of what I sell here are examples of my "Black Cats Are Beautiful" theme in which I've used my photo of black cat Pyewacket, who is in Rainbow Bridge since April 19, 2010. The photos here of my Black Cats Are Beautiful theme are from my Zazzle shop itself.

This is my "Black Cats Are Beautiful" Coffee Mug

I've designed a number of clothing items at Zazzle using my "Black Cats Are Beautiful" theme as well, including t-shirts and a "hoodie".

Here is the T-Shirt:

I have a number of other items as well with my Black Cats Are Beautiful Theme to it and will display later. I have to admit I couldn't resist and I had ordered a Coffee Mug and what can I say? I love it. In fact, here's a picture of the mug itself.
