Thankful Thursday Blog Hop - TomCatSamurai Preliminary Wrap-up

Hi Pals,

Right after I published my blog, I found @PepiSmartDog had published an update in his blog.  Here it is:  He will have the most up to date information.

I am so thankful for all my friends in Twitterland and Blogosphere.   You always come thru to help when one of our own are hurting.   You just did it again for @TomCatSamurai.   And just prior to Tom you came through for Robyn (GeorgeTheDuck's typist).   Both have a chance at a "new start" due to your generosity.   

2 original figurines by @TomCatSamurai
The Chip-in for Tom doesn't end until January 31st and has raised $2,672.50; the Art Auction over at KrauseKats is still going strong at $110 being the top bid so far on the figurine, designed by TomcatSamurai, and  an auction for the Boone and Bourke (gently used bucket handbag) is still active at $111.00.  So, if anyone  wants to still get in on these items, you can do so until January 31, 2012.

Last report from Tom was that they have found an apartment close to where they currently live, have paid the first and last month's rent, and are taking their kitties with them.     WOOHOO!!!   That is super good news!

I've said it before so many times - the anipal group in the blog world and on Twitter is just awesome - you did it AGAIN.   

I'm sure @PepiSmartDog will publish a wrap-up in his blog once all the chip-ins have ended.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who made the AlohaPawty a successful event.   Tom is so very appreciative - we saved Tom and his mom from becoming homeless!

I have joined @Cokiethecat's Blog Hop.    Why don't you join us too - it's easy, fun, and you meet all kinds of new pals.

Thank you - and Pepi - and Maggie - and everyone else who helped make this fundraiser so successful.

It's impossible to explain the Anipal community to some people. They'd never get something like this, but we do...


Much love,
