Jewelry that shows off my love of animals

Getting a kitty tattoo has been in the back of my mind for years now, but being someone who can’t even commit to a cell phone contract, jewelry seems like the next best thing. Some of my favorite websites offer rings, necklaces, and clothing to help you show your love for your furry companions.

The Animal Rescue Site (www.theanimalrescuesite.com)
This site sells anything you can think of- purses, jewelry, key chains, a pedometer- all with paw prints. Most of these products are cat and dog themed. The prices are very reasonable!

Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/
I typed “cat” in the search field at the top and it brought up 192,734 results; typing in “dog” yielded 244,514. A little overwhelming at first, Etsy offers thousands of products from thousands of sellers- you just need to know what exactly you are looking for, or else you could be on there for hours!

The Humane Society of the United States (http://www.humanesociety.org/shop/)
HSUS offers pages of jewelry; they lean more toward a variety of animals- baby seal necklace, bird earrings, in addition to dogs and cats.
