Auction Result Time!

Leo: Is this thing on? Hello? I has an announcement to make! Can you hear me now?? 
 
The auction was over a while back, I know, but mommy had a harder time fining a few peoples and getting everything mailed out. We's all sorry it has taken so long!! But I also think it's worth waiting for! oooo you're gonna love it! 

We waited until Miss Chrystal announced it over at her Daily Dose blog, go ahead over there if you want to hear if from her first! Then come back here after, we'll wait!  

Waiting.. 

Waiting.. 

Hmmm hmm hmmmm HMmmmMM hmmm 

Waiting.... 

Are they back yet? 

Can you still hear me? 

Oh boy, this is gonna rock!! 

Now, this is combined with the Raffle moneys and a few pre-auction hometown sales of some heavier things that we're glad no one had to pay postage for, and of course, our daddy's rounding up!

Ready for the GRAND TOTAL?!!?

Da da DA!


$2500!!!!!



Can you believe it?? 

Whoo hoo! We is so very very happy! The Wishers can get lots of noms (that's foods for you non cat speaking folks) and litters and (even though no one likes it) ebil V.E.T visits with that! 

YOU ALL ROCK!!!!! 

Yes, YOU! 

Every bid, every share, every visit to the auction helped us get here! And every extra sent, and straight donations, and extra help for postage, all helps!!! And we cannot thank you enough!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!! 
Nope, still not big enough. So please consider yourself head bumped/buddy bumped by all the Wishers and all of us!! We loves you!!!!

Raffle Extension

 Oh my gosh, what a week! I announced the Raffle a week ago and haven't posted since? How does that happen? 

Well for one, we had internet issues for a few days. Someone took out a transformer down the street from us and they took their sweet time fixing it. Ok, that's unfair because they were out there right away, it just took them way way way longer than expected. And when it did come back, it was spotty at best. 

Right while I was trying to finish up the auction and start the raffle! 
 
Even with that, I can't believe it's been a whole week! I don't even have a picture for caturday art! 
 
So I hope this doesn't seem unfair to those who have got their tickets to the raffle already, but I think I need to extend it until Tuesday to make up for the missing time.
 
 Please, please, share the raffle banners below. And Please join in! There's still time to get your hands on this wonderful kitty-ful blanket! 

Every bit of it, every single ticket, goes to help the kitties of Winnie's Wish! 

Full details on the Winnie's Wish Auction Site.
 
 


Thank you!! And again, I'm sorry for the delay and the non-posting!

Caturday Art and Last Auction Day

 I love Caturday Art! I love playing with the pictures to see what comes out good and what just looks weird. I should have saved some of the weird ones! I didn't so I hope you agree that these are good.

Watercolor

Flashback Friday

I hope you enjoy today's Flashback Friday post. 
It is from October 23, 2015 and was titled:  
 
Hey Leo!

♪♫ I can't hear you.. ♪♫



Leo.. I know you can hear me..
Sorry, busy taking a bath... I'll get back to you.. maybe.. when you lose that camera..



Leo The Chinese Lion!
Rut Ro.. she used my full name.. that's trouble..  ♪What Mommy?♪



It's Friday, I wanted you to wish your friends a happy weekend.
Weekend? Yay!!! Have a good weekend everyone!!


There's my good boy! And look! A cute little happy face fang!
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Guess what??
 
ONE MORE DAY FOR 

That's right, one more day to get your bids in! It ends at Midnight Saturday, EST. 
And then you know what? You wont have to listen to me harp about it any more, lol! 

Oh but I do it for a good reason! Honest I do. There are over 30 kitties in the Winnie's Wish Rescue and Sanctuary. These are kitties that have no where else to go, they, for various reason, cannot get homes. But they have a home with Chrystal in the Winnie's Wish cat house and various other areas around her kennels and office. No one is crowded, no one has to be with cats or people they don't like. 
Because of us, you and me and other donors, they have food and litter and vet care and all the things kitties need. 

That's why I go on about it; the kitties need is great, so my need to shout from the rooftops is great too. 

So for one more day! Please please pop over to the auction if you can. Make a donation if you can. Send a Wish List item if you can. And if you can't do any of that, then please, please share the auction on your blog,  facebook, instagram, twitter or whatever social media you use! Lets make this last day the biggest one yet! 



Thank you! We really do appreciate every one of you!!

LATE BREAKING NEWS! 
 
Details on the auction site, but the auction is still there too! Auction follows the post about the raffle.

Cashmere's Thankful Thursday

 
Cashmere: I'm thankful for mommy because when I fall asleep like this and start making snorey-chokey noises she always wakes me up. Not so thankful that she calls me silly for trying to choke myself to death during a nap.. I mean, who needs the comments right? Still, she keeps me alive, so I guess I'm pretty thankful. 

~~~~~~~~~~

We are all really really thankful for every one of you! 

We're so very thankful for those who help us share about the Winnie's Wish Holiday Auction and who stop by and have a peek! So thankful and grateful for the bids that help the Wisher Kitties! 



There are just a few days left! Make sure you get your bids in and please continue to share! Let's make a very Merry Holiday for the Wishers! 

Here are a few of the thankful Wishers so you can see exactly who you're helping!


~~~~~~

Argh, here it is Thursday already and I haven't posted about the surprise I told you about! Give me a little more time and I promise you wont be disappointed! 
Here's a better picture of it folded up.
