Thing You Need: The New 6 Packs 9 Lives Calendar

Thing You Need: The New 6 Packs 9 Lives Calendar

Have you seen the latest from your friends at All Things Pets? It’s their new 6Pack 9Lives calendar. And considering they’re “your trusted advisor for ‘all things pets,’” you should probably take their word for the fact that you need this calendar.

And while we at Crushable advocate weekly (daily) “Friday” dance parties, there’s always room in our repertoire for an equally absurd song. Remember Debbie, the very emotional woman whose video ad for eHarmony devolved into blubbering praise of felines?
