This is going to be a long post, but there is just so much important stuff to cover. You know me - Mario - the talker! First of all get out and VOTE for Katie (@Glogirly - http://www.glogirly.com/2012/08/campaign-for-cause-blind-cat-rescue.html. It takes just a minute to do and this is so important for her Animal Charity - Blind Cat Rescue. If they win, they will be awarded $7500 and that will go a long way to help the blind kitties.
Sorry I hasn't been around visiting for a couple of weeks, but M wasn't feeling well for a period of time. She wrote all about it in her PD bloggy, if you'd like the lowdown! Anyway,she says she just can't keep up anymore because everything takes her twice as long to do as it should. She promises me she'll make more of an effort to help visit all of you. http://shufflingalongwithPD.blogspot.com/
Now for something much more serious and important. Our good pal @GeorgeTheDuck is feeling pretty sad these days and so is typist. Robyn's special kitty, Mini, has congestive heart failure and needs medicine that is very expensive. Mini can be treated and should be okay if she keeps getting the very expensive medicine. There are several of us helping in various ways and you can help out too with the following choices:
@CathyKeisha started the ball rolling by contacting the http://furriendsofthecb.blogspot.com/ and they have an auction up and running already. Several lovely items are up for bid, including a cross stitch picture done my M. Here's the picture M submitted for the auction, but you'll have to go to the auction itself in order to place a bid. Check out all of the items up for bid! There are some pretty cool items over there.
There is also a Chip-in Widget at the Cat Blogosphere Site http://furriendsofthecb.blogspot.com/. So you can help out with either cash in the Chip-in or perhaps there is an item up for auction that you'd love to have. The same chip-in is in this blog at the top of this page - right hand column. Then........
Typist and GeorgeTheDuck are holding a Garage Sale Blog Pawty for all their friends. Here's the information George sent out: "
"We are having a blog pawty Garage Sale for our friends at the House of the Mostly Black Cats and GeorgeTheDuck to help highlight the Mom Robyn aka the Typist store. #Sale4Mini is a big sale for Mini's medical expenses that began at midnight last night, 9/10/12, and ends at midnight Thursday, 9/13/12. Please come and see the great sale at http://georgetheduck.com/2012/09/garage-sale-for-mini/ There are prizes for anyone that blogs for this event or tweets out the link to George's blog, as well as purchasing from Typist's store or donating. Hashtag on twitter is #Sale4Mini. Please stop by and check out the 20% coupon sale just for friends of Mini. If you are blogging or tweeting, please leave a comment on the Garage Sale post to be entered in the prizes. Most importantly stop by with a comment sending Mini healing purrs."
I don't know if you are familiar with the Typist's jewelry or not, but you really should buy a piece. It is quality work from top to bottom and worth every penny. It's the kind of jewelry that you'd like to pass down to someone when the inevitable happens. So go over and check out her store at http://crystalsandjewelry.com/
Now I hope everyone gets busy shopping. With all that is being offered, it's better than being at the mall!! Woohoo - let's see what we can do to help Robyn and George feel a little better. It's bad enough that they have to worry about Mini's health without having to worry that they can't afford the vet bill or the medicine.
Oh, don 't forget to leave purrs and purrayers comments on http://georgetheduck.com/2012/09/garage-sale-for-mini/ for Mini. She is a beautiful girl!
See you at the mall!
