Cleaning Up

Dear Friends


Our hearts are breaking this morning for all the human and anipal lives that have been lost due to the bad weather yesterday - and reports are still coming in.   We are especially worried about all our Twitter friends and Blogger friends that were in harms way - I know there are several of you in the south.  


Just a quick update on the fire victims from last week.  For an update on CJ and his mom, please see the blog A Tonks Tale (by Ryker_Tyler) who's mom had been helping all the fire victims.    I say he is a miracle kitty.  All the humans continue to try to rebuild their lives and are each in their new apartments.   Chip-ins to help  both families are in that blog also.  Thoughts, prayers and positive energy continue to be with CJ and all the victims from that Thursday - over a week ago now.  I never did get the widgets going here as I had trouble putting them in the side bar - first time I've run into that problem.  Hiss on Blogger sometimes.




HELP STILL NEEDED with Project Quilt.   If you are a friend of SeaBassCat's family (including DottieGP and BoSoxAmy) we'd love to have you sign a quilt square being made by all kinds of busy bees helping out.  Ultimatelly, Krause Cats mom , Wanda - a fabulous quilter, came up with the idea of doing a signature quilt for the family and she's coordinating the project.   If you can sign a quilt, please contact @LeoPussman's mom - Leo is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/leopussman, or you can DM him on Twitter.  Leo's mom is coordinating getting the squares to those that are signing.   If you don't know Leo, put a message in my blog and I'll reach him for you.   


Several people will be helping sew the blocks together - @Boomiethecat's mom, @TinyPearlCat's mom, @CheshireK's mom, and @DashKitten's mom.   


Thanks to everyone who has helped the fire victims.  Once again the animal community came thru.   Anipals and their humans are the bestest!!!

They, our CB furriends and our Twitter Anipals truly ARE the best and as I always am, I am proud to be among them.

Mom and I were lucky as were my human brothers in that they and their homes and me and my home were OK after the tornadoes came thru but so many others are not and we feel deeply sorry about all the harm and damage and losses of life and property.

It is just so awesome how everyone helps and support every one else. That quilt idea is one of the best. Thanks Mario for all these reminders. WE too, are praying for all the people in the path of those tornadoes yesterday and last night. It is just horrible. We really dodged a bullet here. Take care.

You're such a nice guy, Mario... always thinking of all the other kitties and their families. We're all so lucky to have you as a friend.

Oh, Mario, you have so many really important things to worry about like all those poor people and anipals who got hurt or even got sent to the Bridge because of the bad weather. It was kind of you to take time out to visit us. We are purring and praying very hard for all those who lost their homes or their lives.

When Pop told me how a couple of entire towns were wiped off the map from the tornadoes, I immediately axed when happened to all the anipals who lived there. My quilt square is on it's way to me, I think. Thank you for the updates

The devastation left by the tornadoes is so heartbreaking. We pray for those who were in harm's way.

We went and read about CJ and are so glad he is doing better. We have made a donation for them.

The bad weather affected many, and our hearts are hurting for them. And many others were spared, and for that we are extremely grateful.

It's quite a devastation! We saw it all on the news here. You are right about the big hearts of the pet blogging community :)

Thanks for the update, Mario.
We are praying and purring for all the families out there that are suffering.

We are safe and sound in Minneapolis. Fortunately for us, severe weather is pretty rare here in the city. But as with anything, that could change in the blink of an eye.
