Making the world better with pets #WeAreBetterWithPets

I’ve had a pet of one sort or another, pretty much my entire life.  From terrapins, to tortoises, cats, rabbits and a dog, a pet has always been close to my heart.  Except perhaps my brothers gerbils and hamsters, who all had rather sharp teeth, but we’ll gloss over that. I think it’s really important for children to have a pet, it teaches them about responsibilities, taking care of each other and of course that nothing and nobody lives forever. Purina are making the world better with pets, by making a set of commitments to improve society for pets and their owners; both as a brand and as a company of individual employees.

They’ve created a film to share their vision with us all, and asking us to become active participants.  How can we make this commitment? Well the team at Purina have created a ‘Commitment Generator’ tool to enable us all to make our pledges and share them across social media.

Brewster’s the first long-haired cat I’ve owned and grooming is an interesting experience. As pretty as he looks, keeping his fur at its best can be a bit of a nightmare.  He hates being brushed or combed, so I have to take it slowly with him.  But it’s a job that needs to be done regularly, especially at this time of year, when his coat is full of grass seeds after an adventure.  So my commitment is easy, I promise to brush his hair every day.

The commitment generator is so easy to use, let’s face it, if I can do it, anyone can!  Pop over to the Purina website, make your commitment, upload your pet focussed photo, create and share across social media.  It takes seconds.

I can’t imagine our home without a pet as part of it.  I know how empty the place felt after we said good-bye to Monty before Brewster arrived to cause chaos.

What will your commitment be?

disclosure:  I have been compensated for this post, but my thoughts remain my own honest opinions.

 

 

 

 

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
