Mai Tai, May 31 Pet of the Week

The number of kittens being born this time of year often leaves the older cats at a loss. Mai Tai, a blue-point Siamese, isn’t that old—she’s 2—but she’s a mellow girl as well as sweet and good natured. This is a win-win for anyone wanting a young cat but no kitten behavior. It’s the end of May—great time to make Mai Tai your Thai! Meet her on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID# A607390.

Celebrate World Oceans Day with Rubio’s Coastal Grill, June 8th!

Each year on June 8th we celebrate World Oceans Day, a day designed by the United Nations to celebrate our oceans and collaborate for a better future.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency in 2016, Americans use more than 380 billion plastic bags and wraps per year.  These bags break down into our oceans and harm fish, turtles and other ocean life. As a friend of the ocean and advocate for sustainable seafood, Rubio’s Coastal Grill is giving away free reusable tote bags with any purchase at its restaurants on June 8th.

I received one of these bags and just love it! This bag has quickly become my to-go-to-beach bag! I love how it is insulated and keeps things hot/cool for up to three hours!

We have teamed up for a GIveaway! one winner will win Two meal vouchers from Rubio’s! To enter, leave a comment below telling us how you take care of the ocean or our planet Earth! Deadline to enter is June 8th, 2018 at noon PST. One winner will randomly be selected via U.S. residents only, please.

There are also a few local World Oceans Day events for those looking to get more involved, including:

  • Aquarium of the Pacific World Oceans Day Celebration (June 8 at 9am – 6pm): The aquarium will be teaching visitors about climate change, ocean pollution and various ocean issues through films, exhibits and other activities. More details here.
  • Beach Guardians Dockweiler Beach Cleanup & Picnic (June 9 at 9am – 12pm): Sea Shepherd Los Angeles Beach Guardians will be hosting a clean up and potluck at Dockweiler Beach. More details here.
