Look what was in the Pet Stuff Resale warehouse!

End of the year means doing inventory in preparation for taxes and EVERY year there are surprises.."oh yea, that's where that was" kind of revelations:)

 This ottoman instantly meowed at me in the store..looks like a cattoman to me. Cats would love to perch on it AND tear around under the skirt underneath as well.

 A nice touch that the legs are covered and the skirt is lined.

This very well made custom "cattoman" is 21.00 SOLD
This 10-15 gallon aquarium stand has been nicely repainted with a semi gloss paint; coupled with a 10 gal tank and lights(too cold for photographer to assemble) it is for sale for 42.00.
  It can however be repurposed for several other things. The back can be enclosed or not and provide storage...maybe gardening things or in a spare room. I can see a large beach scene painting perched on it.
A sunken planter would do well or 2-3 pots on top; it is fairly strong.26.00 by itself
 Baby gates are just flat good, cheap insurance!  It's amazing what doesn't get chewed when puppies can't get to it... This expands to 40" in.  17.00 SOLD

Manufacturers should make pink crates every year; they are that popular. Since they aren't, they are in high demand in the secondary market. 12.00 SOLD

This large(24x26x36")  Deluxe Vari Kennel is popular due to having metal vents on the sides.
This is tougher for those teenage puppies to chew... 50.00 at Pet Stuff Resale

This is baby Elfin, a 4 month old chihuahua weighing only 2.1 lb, with horrendously luxating patellas.He was released by the SPCA(Thank you!) to Chestnut Rehab, a nonprofit in Bellaire, Tx. to get more orthopedic help than a shelter can provide.
He needs a miracle of a TV story or the like due to the expense of this complicated surgery.  In an unusual move, 3 of my bud vets from 2 clinics are teaming up for the surgery. Coordinating the tax deductible donations is Chestnut Rehab,4834 Chestnut, Bellaire, Tx 77401. 713-667-4244 There is no chip in or Pay Pal involved.

Save Christmas $$ 2 ways at Pet Stuff Resale

 The prices are good at PSR anyway, so the first way to save is easy.

Often items at PSR are new or look new so would make great gifts. (I am not recommending to hide that a gift is recycled.) That saves you money on your shopping list. Here's a perfect example.
This portable drinking bowl looks new and is 8.99 on It is hands free, leak free and excess water goes back into bottle.
 A great stocking stuffer at Pet Stuff Resale for 5.00.

This finch cage is sold at pet places as a parakeet cage, but it is too small even for one keet. For an animal used to flying, to live their whole life(or even most) in a cage this small is just flat wrong. 
This is part of how Pet Stuff Resale recycles. The tray was missing from the silver cage when I bought it, so I added a tray and wire base from another cage that was too rusted for me to sell.That went to metal recycling and this cage is repurposed. Paper covers most of the bottom anyway. I don't recommend pets for Christmas, but this could be an upgrade for a current cage. It can also be used for a hospital or transport cage.  16.00 at PSR

 Actually there is a 3rd way to save money!Purchasing something used as basic and practical as the reptile tank pictured at the bottom right corner frees up spending for other pet items you may want new.

Savannah Carolina was MOST uninterested in modeling this shell pink sweater. She weighs about 9 1/2 lbs,  it actually fit Lizbet the 13 lb dachshund better. Lizbet also enjoys wearing them:) This was custom made and only 4.00.

Both Savannah Carolina and Lizbet are still looking for their permanent homes.

This plaid tote is in excellent condition; another great gift idea for a cat owner/foster. It is 13.00
29/30 gal reptile tank and stand
