Is there anywhere that donates kid clothes or women clothes? My daughter and I need summer clothes badly. So bad. Or any decent thrift stores that actually have summer season clothes & a good selection?! (Last one I went to it was all winter and none of our sizes)

Found this at a thrift store over the weekend. Haven't read it yet but as a fellow B-P aficionado (/gobsmacked spectator), I'm hoping it's an interesting insight.
Have you read it?

2023.05.30 12:39 a7cATR4z Reality of Animal Welfare NGO's in my town.
It breaks my heart everytime i remember this.
I had these two stray kittens 7-8 months old around my house premises. I used to feed them daily since they were weaned.
Last Sunday (21st May 2023) one of them died after getting sick and refusing to eat or drink on Saturday night. The other one was totally fine till Wednesday then he also started showing same symptoms. He refused to even drink water.
Then i contacted two of renowned NGO'S in my town from the contact numbers provided in their respective FB pages, for help taking the kitten to hospital. two of the senior membeco founder from each NGO replied, out of town and started sharing contacts of other members and doctors. I tried contacting one of the numbers it said switched off and told the same to the NGOs co founder, he again shared another guy's number from another NGO. And this kept going on and on. I told them both it's hard for me to explain again and again to each of you, can you please ask one of the members to come here help me with the kitten. He said will let you know by the evening. He never called back.
One of the guy from the same ngo whom i messaged earlier on WhatsApp called me and said he will come in the evening after 1-2 hours, he never showed neither contacted. when I called back said will come in an hour, one day has passed no contact from him again.
By then one friend who saw similar cases suggested me some oral medication and electrolytes, I bought those and gave it to the kitten and he had some energy and was able to walk and roam around I thought he'll survive with full recovery.
As help from NGO was never coming. Today (26th may 2023) i took the kitten myself with the help of a cousin to 3 different government veterinary hospitals one of them had no doctors at 11AM. Other two prescribed me medicine which i had to buy from outside with my own expenses. I didn't know you need to buy the medicine yourself in government veterinary hospital. anyway.
Doctors gave him antibiotic injection and one injection for stomach issues and prescribed few more medicine to give orally. I bought the medicines and returned home. Both doctors refused to give the kitten saline(IV) even though i requested them to.
After returning the kitten seemed more weak he wasn't able to walk straight now. I gave him some Electrolyte solution around 3ml he wasn't able to drink now. Then he slept a bit. After an hour or so saw him shivering I thought maybe the antibiotics is doing it's work. I held him and he tried to sit up but failed then his limbs stretched and he started grasping for air I tried to comfort him and petted him. Then i felt his heartbeat go very fast and his breathing going slow and muscle spasm started. Then i felt his heartbeat go slow and very faint and finally stopped. I felt so helpless kept telling him not to die but he left already.
Atleast they both had love and care all around them when they were alive. Rest in Peace. Be Happy together.
These NGO's are there only when it's convenient for them or there is cameras and publicity around. I have now 0 faith in these Hypocrites.
Another thing I remember, I had contacted one of the co founder of one of these NGO few years back regarding an injured bird, the bird died too but he didn't even bother replying till now :)
I guess these NGO's can't work when nobody is filming them doing god's work or when there is some financial gain. :)

2023.05.30 11:38 ColoradoWinterBlue Best way to part with hamster habitat? :(
| || |
My sweet hamster passed away, and sadly wont be getting another. I’m allergic and just don’t have the time or space for it, as much as I’d love another! submitted by ColoradoWinterBlue to hamsters [link] [comments]
Apart from it being hard to let go, I feel stuck on what exactly to do. Unless I can donate to a good cause (and I haven’t found a rescue that isn’t at capacity,) I’d like to get some money because my hammy didn’t live in this setup for long. I tried listing it online, but the local market is saturated. I’m not even sure what a reasonable asking price is.
Have you been in this situation? Part of me just wants to donate it to a thrift store and get it over with. But I’d also like to rest knowing someone’s hammy is living in a habitat that’s safe and big enough.

| || | submitted by jassicaleo318 to u/jassicaleo318 [link] [comments]
The pet food industry is experiencing remarkable growth, becoming a thriving market with significant economic impact. With a global value surpassing $107.79 billion
in 2022, the industry is poised for continued expansion in the forecast period of 2023-2028. Projections indicate a rapid growth rate with a compound annual growth rate of 4.8%, potentially reaching an impressive value of $142.81 billion by 2028. These figures highlight the increasing importance placed on providing quality nutrition to pets and the strong demand for a wide range of pet food products. As pet owners increasingly prioritize the health and well-being of their beloved companions, the pet food market continues to play a pivotal role in meeting their needs. Definition of pet food
Importance of providing proper nutrition to pets
- Pet food refers to specially formulated food products designed to meet the nutritional needs of domestic animals, including dogs, cats, birds, fish, and other pets.
- It is commercially produced and available in various forms to cater to different preferences and dietary requirements.

2023.05.30 10:47 Lington Charge from Amazon Mexico?
I just got a text alert about an international charge for $1.14 from Amazon Mexico (which was actually also credited back to me). I did call to cancel the card but I'm very confused because I just got this card a month ago and aside from some pet store purchases I've only made purchases through my Amazon and PayPal accounts with this card so far. I checked the accounts and there's no suspicious activity on them. Is this charge related to my Amazon account even if there isn't a purchase for $1.14 in the account? Or is it unrelated to my Amazon account and someone just got my new card number somehow? I thought making all of my online purchases through PayPal protects my card number. My paypal account has two factor auth. Just trying to figure out what happened or if something is compromised so I can avoid it happening again when I get the new card since I'd continue using Amazon and PayPal.

2023.05.30 10:27 xxsaramazingxx Caught my (35f) husband (35m) stealing my pain meds... This is the fourth time and I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.
I'm not even where to start, this is long I apologize in advance for errors, I'm on mobile...
Please bare with me as I have multiple chronic illnesses which cause my brain to be mushy 200% of the time... But I'll try to be as detailed as possible, I don't want to give too much away as this is a very serious issue and could get my husband in some serious trouble. Which he deserves to be in, BUT I'm currently waiting on a decision from social security disability so his full time employment means we have a home, food to eat and food for my 3 fur babies. He is supporting me and I do not have anything to fall back on in terms of support so I'm stuck still living with my husband.
The backstory: we've been together for almost ten years now, married for about 3. I have multiple slow progression painful chronic illnesses, I've been sick my whole life and he's taken on a huge responsibility being my partner... And I thought he accepted me for who I am not what I can offer. Mind you I'm not completely disabled, I'm able to do light housework, make his lunch for work, care for our pets and make simple dinners daily... So from chronic illness standards I'm doing pretty well for how progressed they are. Multiple of my illnesses causes severe pain so I take high dose pain meds to regulate myself on top of getting regular epidural steroid injections and ablations of the nerves in my spinal column to be able to walk. Back to the story, about 3 years into our relationship, the first time I noticed my meds were going missing I was on a low dose pain med called tramadol, he lied but eventually admitted to taking "a few". We moved forward but I had to hide my medication. The second time, fast forward a few years and we had moved into our new house. At this point I was taking lower dose Norco, but I was noticing I was light when I shouldn't have been. Confrontation again and I got a lock box. Third time I was spring cleaning and I found an empty checkbook full of my USED fentanyl patches, I had started using those due to not being able to keep my meds down completely. He had shaken them out of my sharps container then stored them away... Still not sure what he was going to do with them, it's basically skin cells by the time I take it off. I was ready to leave at this time but my parents had just moved 2 and a half hours away in a two bedroom small home. I had/have no where to go and no money to use to do anything about it... Things seemed fine for a couple years. The lock box was protecting my meds and things seemed ok... But I was still weary... Unfortunately my room in which I stored my lockbox got really cluttered due to many reasons so it became hard to use. Another part of me wanted to trust my husband. Stupid me, right?
Well to break down my dosage - I am prescribed a medium dose Norco 4x a day. Usually I only take 2-3 depending on pain and ration the rest in case of med shortage. But I was noticing my extra earrings were not as abundant as they should have been but I thought maybe I was taking a bit extra that month since it was winter. Due to recent medication shortages, my dose was increased but for 3x a day. Which I downgraded my dose to 2x a day to make sure I had extra as my pharmacy warned me they still can't get any in.
Come to the other day and I open my bottle to notice I only had a small handful... So I emptied the bottle and counted, i only had enough to take 2 a day for the next three days leaving me not only 3 Norco short for those days, but three days worth was completely gone... My heart sank because I knew what happened... I confronted my husband who lied about it at first but I asked him again and he finally admitted to taking "a few". I screamed at him for awhile before telling him to get out of my face and go to work, so he left. Sitting there I calculated not only did he steal about a months worth (1 a day) for May but he had to of stolen another two months worth during the previous months my meds weren't in the lock box... A MINIMUM of 90 Norco was taken from me when I absolutely needed them.
I wanted to file a police report that morning but was stopped by my mom who reminded me that I'm currently depending on him to survive. Only when social security goes through do I have any options of leaving... I currently pay about $315 a month on a student loan I'm not even able to use. It's not for not trying, I started working at the age of 14 but had to stop in 2020 due to multiple flare ups ending me up at 93 pounds plus in and out of the hospital on the regular.
Current situation, it's been 5 days, I asked him if he had anything to say to me at all, he said no. He still says I love you and tries to kiss me... I lean away in disgust... I'm disgusted with his audacity to take the medication that helps me be a person. I'm disgusted with myself that I do still love him but all feelings have been burned from his actions. It's obvious he has no respect for me and I'm not even sure if he married me because he loves me or if he just thought he'd have easy access to my medications for the rest of his life... Well my life. I feel obligated to continue my "wifely duties" such as making his lunch, picking up the house to the best of my abilities, make us dinner at night as he is the only one on the house so it's his, he's letting me stay despite my cold demeanor... Kinda keep the peace until I can figure a way out... It's selfish but so is he.
I do not have money to move on my own and I have to take my two large dogs and cat with me as he will neglect them, not intentionally, he has ADHD so he just forgets things. My parents said I could come up there but that means every doctors appointment I'm driving 5 hours both ways... And I have 5-7 a month. My best friend is in another state, my other bestie has 4 kids a husband and allergic to animals, 3rd friend lives with her aunt and uncle. I could crash at my brother's for a few days but not any longer... And my neighbor can't house my animals... That is my list of people, I have nobody else... Though who would want to roommate with someone who can't pay rent but can contribute to groceries, cook and light cleaning...
I'm not even sure why I'm posting... I'm very lost and confused. I've officially taken off my wedding band, I know I should file a report but he could lose his job which means he loses insurance meaning I lose insurance... I should leave him but I have nowhere to go... I told him the only way I'd even consider working on our relationship again is if he goes to therapy or rehab but he's said he'd go on the past just to not go or go once then never again...
My only plan I can think of is wait for social security to hopefully approve me then I can get my student loan waved, then I can look into low income apartments or housing... But who knows how long that's going to take, it's been in reconsideration since October of last year (22).
I'm gonna go potato now... Any helpful advice would be magical. Thank you

2023.05.30 09:57 eurasian_nuthatch Rate my 3-month Western Europe trip!
Hi! I'm planning on a solo backpacking trip to Western Europe next summer (May-July) and want more feedback on my itinerary! I already posted in solotravel
but this sub is bigger so I thought, well, the more feedback the better! My budget is around $15k Canadian including flights
(1 USD = 1.3 CAD, so that's around $11.5k USD
). I'm planning on staying in dorm rooms in hostels in the big cities and private rooms in hostels in the small towns. I'm leaving this week for a trip to Berlin + Munich
which is why they're not on the itinerary.
I know I'm spending a lot of days in London and Paris - I'm planning on hitting up thrift stores and doing a few day trips from them, which is why my stays are so long.
My questions are:
- Am I moving around too much? Should I set up a home base (for example, in Belgium and Austria) and just commute from there? I'm planning on getting the 3-month Eurail pass, so the cost of train trips isn't an issue. I just don't like moving around every few days.
- Is this trip doable on my budget? I'm planning on going to a lot of museums, but I'm not a big spender on food (planning on eating at restaurants around once or twice a day and hitting up the grocery store for the rest) and don't drink much alcohol
- Fly in to Edinburgh from Montreal
- Edinburgh - 5 days (including day trips to Loch Lomond and potentially Glasgow)
- Hadrian's Wall - 0.5-1 day
- The Lake District (UK) - 2 days
- London - 8 days
- D-Day beaches - 2 days
- Paris - 8 days (day trip to Versailles)
- Marseille - 3 days
- Nice - 3 days
- French Alps - 5 days
- Dijon - 0.5-1 days
- Bruges - 4 days
- Ghent - 2 days
- Brussels - 4 days (including day trips to Ypres and Waterloo)
- Antwerp - 3 days
- Amsterdam - 7 days (including day trips to Zaanse Schans, Giethoorn, Utrecht, and Rotterdam)
- Cologne - 1 day
- The Rhine Valley - 4 days
- Rothenburg - 2 days
- The Black Forest - 4 days
- Innsbruck - 2 days
- Salzburg - 2 days
- Salzkammergut - 2 days
- Vienna - 4 days
So sorry for the long post! Thanks so much in advance for any advice :)
