Frugal Friday – Spay Neuter Charlotte and Low Cost Pet Care (Now Stand For Animals)
I love my vets. But, being the mom of four (formerly five) furbabies – sometimes I just can’t afford them! Every pet owner knows what I’m talking about. The biggest downside to having pets is the amount spent on their care. When money gets tight, we often: Pay for our pet’s medical care and neglect… Read More ›
A Very Vegan Valentine’s Day – Dining Options in Charlotte, NC
Please Note: This post was written in 2014. Much of the advice still holds true (check out your vegan and ethnic spots, consider Netflix and a pizza instead of eating out and dine out a day earlier or later).

Vegan Thanksgiving Options in Charlotte: Bean Vegan Cuisine
One of the things I’m thankful for this year is all the vegan choices we now have in Charlotte! Once upon a time in Charlotte, if a vegan didn’t feel like cooking on Thanksgiving, the options were limited to roasting an acorn squash or getting your hands on a Tofurky (blechh). And in the days… Read More ›

Behind The Scenes At A Circus Protest
Once again, THE CIRCUS WAS IN TOWN! AND I WAS THERE! Shivering (it was dang cold!), smiling, and holding a poster that read “THE CIRCUS IS NO FUN FOR ELEPHANTS!” If you’re reading a vegan blog, chances are you have at least some slight concern for animal welfare and understand the reasons why people protest… Read More ›
