Angels in Disguise

Sinbad in Paris
Hi Friends,

My peeps are leaving me for 4 days. Yup! I has to stay home alone with a pet sitter coming in 2 times a day to give me some attention. Sigh! But, I told M we had to do a thank you to all the kind and generous anipals/oomans that donated to @CatNamedSinbad’s fund, and I wanted to do dat before they leave on their mini vacation -without me! (Want to make dem feel guilty)

Picture of me that Sinbad
sent this past Christmas
Those of you who personally knew Sinbad on Twitter know that he would surprise his friends now and then with a cute picture that he created. I’m going to share a couple of those with you by randomly placing them throughout this post.  I think this one is so cute.

We got several emails from Sinbad's mama before she moved.  About a week before she left California she wrote:

"You, Mario and all of the donors are Angels for showing the willingness to help Sinbad and I. I cannot tell you how relieved I am to go forward, knowing Sinbad’s health has been evaluated and treated. My friend loves Sinbad, and I know she will give him attention.”

Then two days before she was to leave, she wrote “Sinbad is wondering where my bed is and why we are sleeping on the floor atop some blankets. I gave him about 100 kisses a few minutes ago. I miss him already knowing I only have tonight and Monday night with him."  (M and I have leaky eyes just thinking about their farewell, but do hope someday they will be together again.)

Sinbad sent me this pic at Easter.  I not sure, but I think it might be his picture.

M and I cannot find enough right words to express our gratitude to you (all the donors) in coming forward to help Sinbad and his mama. The generosity of our Twitter and blog anipal friends is overwhelming. I know Sinbad’s mama will be forever grateful to all of you for helping them. A HUGE thank you to -ALL OF YOU  - the donor Angels:

Sinbad wanted these 2 pics tweeted
saying "I miss everyone.  We must
share some good times again."

(No response was ever received from a few when we asked them if we could publish a Twitter name.  To protect their privacy, we listed their first initial so that they can identify themselves if reading this post.)

We also want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to our friend @ForeverGinger and her mama who handled the finances. M is especially deeply grateful to Ginger as we don’t know how to set funds up. Thank you Ginger for your dedication and willingness to manage that fund and for also corresponding with Sinbad’s mama. You and your mama are Angels too.. 

Bye for now.  Stay tuned for the next post which will be the story of @Ladycat3.

This post touched my heart in a special way. I have faith that Sinbad and his mother back together, it's the law of love "those who love can not be separated"

Hi Mario, Once again showing what a good kitty man you are. Thank you for updating us on Sinbad and his mom. I was just wondering about them.

Should I keep the Sinbad fund raising widget on my blog or has that been closed out?

Thanks for the update my friend. Sinbad and his mummy were so kind to us, always sweet and fun and creating the great pictures! We'll keep purring for them both.
