Bookends and Begging

I love it when my kitties call a truce. But even when they don't, I'm still grateful that I have both of them. Leo is my heart cat and I could not resist getting him even though I thought Star may not like the idea of another cat. I was right, but I'm still glad I got him.

Knowing that they don't always get along makes it extra special when things like this happen:








Will they ever curl up together for a nap and make a grey fur snuggle pile? Probably not. No, definitely not! But that doesn't matter because I get to cuddle with each of them individually.

I'm glad for both of my kitties even if they are not glad of having each other. Peaceful coexistence is possible most days and we're content with that.

I'm saying all of this because I want you to consider that even if you already have a kitty or two that it might be possible to add another one into the mix. It might turn out great! It might be peaceful coexistence, but it will mean the world to the kitty you adopt.

I think you all know which kitties in particular I'm talking about you adopting. The Winnie's Wish cathouse is overfull. With three unexpectedly returned kitties and another that's supposed to have been returned with them and will be soon (very soon hopefully) the need for adoptions has become desperate. If you would consider the possibility of taking one or more of these sweethearts into your home it would change their world, and enrich yours.

Even if you cannot take one in, please share and spread the word about them to everyone you know. You never know who will turn out to be the next Winnie's Wish adopter!

I made little posters for each of the adoptable Winnie's Wishers, please feel free to take them, share them, use them on facebook or your blog. For every one of you who shares, many many people will see them. Consider it a seasonal gift to the cat world!






 



 


 



I hate to beg, but as I said, the situation is desperate. Please share!
You can go over to the Daily Dose blog to see more about each kitty. Just click on their picture on the sidebar. Thank you so much for helping find forever homes for these darling kitties!

Aww, I wish I could..I find myself drawn to Kippie, but between being in Minnesota and having a schnauzer who loves to chase cats (only because he wants to be friends but he can't seem to understand how over the top and how overwhelming he can be to our kitty Genie, who can't stand him), I can't. I will be thinking of these kitties and all the other ones out there who need good homes. Andrea, you did such a great job with these posters.

The Human says: I wish I could have another kitty, but here's why I don't think I can: Spitty is the MOST difficult kitty I have ever had. It has taken 9 years to earn (sort of) his trust. He is so terrified of EVERYTHING. I really fear bringing in another kitty would send us back to square one. Also, I live in a one bedroom apartment so there isn't much room for two cats to have "apart" space. I sometimes feel bad not to be able to rescue another kitty, but I don't want to jeopardize all the years of work in getting Spitty to feel safe and relaxed (most of the time!)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Those are truly beautiful kitties. We hope their furrever families are making arrangements to bring these beauties home for Christmas!

Marg said...

Oh I so hope that they all find the most wonderful home ever. Sorry we don't have any room at the inn but they sure all very pretty and look like really nice cats.

We are crossing all our paws for some adoptions at Winnie's Wish. Those kitties all deserve loving homes.

We don't snuggle up in piles with each other, but we will quite happily share a sofa, or a bed, and #` is happy with that.

Purrs,
The Chans

We purr purr purr that these kitties will find their forever homes.

Bellen said...

What great work you've done for the Daily Dose. I'd take plenty more cats, but my finances are stretched with the four perma-cats I have and the two I am fostering. Let's hope Winnie's Wish comes true for Christmas.

Since I won't be commenting until after Christmas, may I wish you and yours a happy Yuletide. Have a great end to a great year, and a better year to come.

meowmeowmans said...

Great post, Andrea! We so wish for all the Winnie's Wish kitties to find homes really soon.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We wish we could do something to show people about those lovely cats but we are too far away to make it feasible. We will add to the purrs.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Clooney said...

Really great post Andrea, you did such a good job with the graphics for each kitty. Our heart goes out to each and every one of them and we wish them all safe, loving forever homes very soon. It is upsetting to hear about Glitter, Cashmere and (hopefully Circe) coming back and we wish for the three of them a very loving, safe home very soon. Sending prayers to all the kitties. Wishing Leo, Star and you Andrea and family a very Merry Christmas!

xoxo

They’re so beautiful. I hope they all find homes soon.

Katie Isabella said...

IT is so deeply heartbreaking when beautiful babies don't have a home and things get so hard for their benefactor. God bless the critters and those who caretake for them.
