Over the years I have heard many different ways Titanic is used. It is overused as a cliché. These days it is hard not to here someone say “like rearranging deck chairs on Titanic.”I never knew that an animal shelter in Sacramento, CA had named its pantry for animals Titanic’s.
According to the Sacramento Bee , the city’s Animal Care Services has been providing free animal food to those who cannot afford to buy it. This is to help struggling families so that the do not give their pets up. This year the cupboard is bare due to high demand and low contributions. Donations usually come from people either dropping off animal food or from pet stores. They are asking for help to meet the increased demand.
In case your wondering, the pantry is named for their mascot who is described as “gargantuan” and hence the name Titanic.
