Big Announcement! And Daddy's Chair

Before we get to today's post, I have some great news that I keep forgetting to announce!

If you recall, my secret hope and dream was that the FUN FUN FUNdraiser would bring in a thousand dollars, but I wasn't sure that could happen so I out loud wished for a couple hundred for Winnie's Wish. Well, this week we sorted out the money, figured what paypal and postage and everything took and would you believe it, WE, that's YOU and us, WE raised $1062!!!!! OVER a thousand! Oh my gosh do you guys rock!!!! Do you know how many spays, neuters, vaccines, how much food and litter and miscellaneous medical care that will cover?!?! How awesome is that!?!
I thank ever single one of you for your help in spreading the word, for donating and loving the toys, and for caring enough about Winnie's Wish to jump on board with us! Again, you all rock!!

Now the biggest need over there is adoptions! The cathouse is full and she has three kitties, including the one with the broken leg, in the house. She needs more room, she needs to adopt out some of those kitties. So lets put as much effort into finding those homes as we did to the FUNdraiser, ok? Tell everyone, blog, facebook and tweet, tell all your friends and family! Please help THESE KITTIES find a forever home!

Thank you!

Oh, and yes, you can still get FUNdraiser toys for donations to Winnie's Wish. I've got plenty ready to go!


Daddy's Chair
Star LOVES sitting on the arm of her daddy's chair! Not just to get pets, but just to be near him. Or perhaps she thinks of it as HER chair and wants him to move.. Either way, she's so sweet looking when she sits there. Here are a few examples.
Daddy ALWAYS gives her his bowl after he's done with ice cream. He usually leaves a bit in there for her too, just a bit because he doesn't want her to get sick, but he doesn't want her to be deprived either.. I give her my bowl too (Leo is completely uninterested in human food and would rather try to bury it than lick it..) but it's never as good, and she will snub her nose at it or, in the case of sherbet, she'll try to bury it too! Apparently daddy has better taste in ice cream flavors...
Hurry up.. Aren't you done yet? I want my licks.

This was a very weird usage of daddy's chair... Greg and I have very different ideas of what a 'comfortable' temperature is.. When I'm cold, he's hot, when I'm hot, he's cold *sigh* The other day he was hot and I had a snuggy on, so he turned on the fan and aimed it at himself.

Star jumped up, and we were both surprised when she sat and faced the fan.
Daddy's hot, I'm hot.

If that wasn't cute enough, she lifted her face toward the fan and just kept it there! Seriously, I took several pictures of this scene, thinking I'd have a series of expressions or movements.. but she never budged, not a muscle.. She just sat face in the breeze. So obviously I'm not going to show them, it would look like I just copied the same picture over and over!
I love the way the wind blows through my furs.

Freezey mommy closed my windows, how else do you expect me to catch the breeze?
Is there a better spot in the house than next to the one you love?

michico*Adan said...

You have a great dad,
I can see how much you love him!

Oui Oui said...

Wow, concats on over $1000! You rock the mostest cause you worked so hard to make it happen.

Our Julie is like Star, she has to have some of the mom's everything, especially ice cream. She doesn't care what flavor. She recently ate pumpkin ice cream. (We have the same bowls as you too!)

The mom's first cat, Leia, loved men and would let them do anything to her - like dangle her upside down. Things she would have scratched the mom bloody for.

Having a strong breeze inside the house sounds rather unusual to US!

meowmeowmans said...

Oh, you guys totally and undeniably ROCK!!! We are so thankful for all your hard work and advocacy for Chrystal!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hurray! All-Star, All-the-time! Who needs that BoyCat anyway?? Star deserves BOTH ice cream bowls, the spot in front of the fan, and as many blog posts as she wants.

Am I right, or am I right?

Well done with all, Andrea!
