Bring Home A Box Of Softness And Rescue A Cat #bringhomeabox

This is a sponsored PSA on behalf of Scotties. I love cats, and if it were possible I would adopt every single stray or homeless cat I see.

That's why I'm so happy to hear about a company I already love on a mission to help find homes for cats and kittens that need a forever home.
