Are you an animal lover? I sure am. I think our five cats, dog and Goldfish sort of hint to that fact. Plus I would LOVE to have my own working farm, or even an animal sanctuary if we had the money. Sadly, living in a condo is not the most ideal place for cows and chickens. LOL!
I know there are plenty of animals lovers. Most people I know have at least one pet. Even my boss has a cat and she’s allergic to cats. She deals with her allergies because she loves her funny little kitten.
I work with little children and one of the questions I always ask them is if they have any pets, and if so, what kind. I feel like it’s a great way to “break the ice.” Most kids I talk to are happy to talk about their pets. It’s a nice way to get a child comfortable talking with you.
Netflix has a new series that I think would be of great interest to many children and adults. It’s Puss, as in Puss in Boots from the Shrek movie franchise. Of course Puss in Books is a classic story that dates back hundreds of years. I remember reading the story of Puss in Boots when I was a child, back in the Stone Age. Of course the current “Shrek version” is probably the most popular Puss in Boots characters. After all, how can you not fall in love with his sweet little face?
The swashbuckling adventure-comedy series, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, comes to Netflix on January 16, 2015. I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet (since it’s not available until tomorrow) but I plan on watching it. Puss cracks me up in all the Shrek movies and holiday specials.
If you are looking for other movies and shows the feature our furry – and not so furry – friends, here are a few additional suggestions from Netflix.
1. Pet Party
2. Clifford’s Puppy Days
3. Littlest Pet Shop
4. The Adventures of Milo and Otis (love this movie!)
5. Snow Buddies (all of the Buddies films are adorable)
6. Sabrina, The Animated Series
I have a few other suggestions that are not listed here of out pet themed movies. Pets are not ONLY dogs and cats.
Black Beauty (classic!)
Wiener Dog Nationals (funny, I reviewed it)
Poppy Cat (super cute children’s show)
Charlotte’s Web (classic!)

I love that it’s supposed to be Puss in Boots. That is a cute idea. I also think that you can use this basic idea and make other creature “piggy banks” – maybe even an actual pig!
