Thankful for Our Friends

We are so thankful for our amazing friends.

A couple of weeks ago, our pals over at Twinkletoe Tails celebrated Oui Oui and Mica Minnie Moo’s gotcha days by holding a commentathon (at their blog) and post-a-thon (at the Tabby Cat Club) to benefit the PAWS cats. Well, the events were a huge success, raising $100 to benefit the volunteer-initiated and -implemented “Habitat for Cats” catification project at the shelter. And THEN, another one of our close blogging buddies, Brian (of Brian’s Home) and his dad, matched that $100, turning it into $200 for PAWS! Is that cool, or what?


Big thanks to the Twinkletoe Tails gang (Oui Oui, MMM, Julie and Carlos, and their mom) and the crew at Brian’s Home (Brian, Sascha, Gracie, Zoe, Dolly, Kit, and Precious, and their dad and mom). We love you all, and are so grateful for your friendship, thoughtfulness and generosity. You’ll be excited to know that your generous gifts are the very first donations for “Habitat for Cats” at PAWS!


But our thank you train doesn’t stop there. Check out what some of our other blogging buddies did…

Recently, our close friend Sparkle the Designer Cat (and her human) held a highly successful commentathon to celebrate her birthday and World Cat Domination Day. With the $75 she raised, Sparkle chose to sponsor three cats – Patch, Sweet Pea and Oreo – who are waiting at PAWS for their forever homes! Pretty awesome, huh?

And THEN, our dear friends at The Cat on My Head, inspired by Sparkle and her human’s kindness, decided to sponsor a PAWS kitty, too! The Kitties Blue and their mom are sponsoring Swizzle. And they want to keep sponsoring her until she is adopted! They even made Swizzle an honorary Kitty Blue!


Thank you so much for sponsoring these amazing adoptable cats, Sparkle and the Kitties Blue. We appreciate and love you, and will do our best to keep you posted about how “your” kitties are doing.

And finally … thank you to everyone who took the time to post and comment to help make all of the events such a success. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without you.  Thank you all for your friendship, and for being YOU!

Have a great weekend. :)

  5. I am so happy that all the PAWS kitties are getting so much support from fellow cat bloggers - and I could not be more thrilled that my human's sponsoring kitties there inspired The Cat on My Head's human to sponsor too!

  26. What blessings have come your way - and each one well deserved. So many kind people doing kind things. Thank you to them all. People forget that every last cent counts. and 100 cents make a dollar so - giving a few cents even or a couple of dollars ALL ADDS UP!

  39. You guys deserve every bit of support you get. If there's anything we're sorry about, it's not being able to join the whole project when it went full blast.

    Hugs. Cheers to our amazing community.
