Wish Granted

You all know how connected we feel to Winnie's Wish and Chrystal at Daily Dose, right? And how hard everyone worked to get a couple of Winnie's Wishers to their new forever home in California? Well, did you know that Mindy of Pugs and Purrs bought sets of FUNdraiser toys to go to adoptees from Winnie's Wish?

Well, she did, so I made them, and they were sent after Frosting and Hershey Bear finally made their way to their forever family! And then their new mom emailed some pictures and said this:


When it looked like all our options were running out, it meant so much to us to know that there were people who were willing to go out of their way to make this work. It has been so humbling to realize how many people were involved, both up front and behind the scenes, in getting these kitties to California. They are doing so well. Each day we can see them settling in more and more. We've been so blessed, not just by Hershey and Frosting themselves, but by all the love and hard work that went into getting them here.


I wrote to ask if I could share those pictures and as well as saying yes, she said this:


Hershey and Frosting have brought such joy into our home, and that message needs to be spread. Chrystal has poured so much love into these kitties and it really is evident in their personalities. Hoping our story will inspire more people out west to adopt from Winnie's Wish. :)


I felt these words of praise were meant for the whole blogosphere so I'm sharing them with all of you. As well as the pictures of them in their new home!!




Don't they look happy! Especially Frosting, leaning against one of her pawrents feetsies and cuddling up to her Winnie's Wish pillow! Do I hear a collective AWWWWWW out there?

To all of you, for your good wishes, your help, your purrs, your prayers, your willingness to do what needs to be done, thank you!



So, think we can do as much for some more Winnie's Wishers? ;) Please look on the Daily Dose side bar and see if you know someone who could use a little furry love in their life!



And now, a picture of my Winnie's Wisher..


And Star, so Spitty won't have another Starless night, MOL



We love you all!

Well, so happy to read about Frosting and Hershey, but of course YOU know which picture is the best on this page, don't you? That's right! You didn't even need that second guess ;-)

By the way, Hershey reminds me a little of someone....hmmm...who could it be???
