Thankful Pillow Girl

 Cashmere: Gotta keep the pantaloons fluffy, la la la la la la..


  
Cashmere: Whoops, didn't see you all there.. Well, a girl can get carried away when she gets ALL the pillows all to herself. I feel like the queen of everything! This is Thankful Thursday and yes, this is what I'm thankful for today! 
Also thankful for all the well wishes for our mommy. She loves you all and appreciates everything! We're sure she'll get better, it's just going to take a bit of time. 


Know what else we are really thankful for? Miss Chrystal and Winnie's Wish! If it weren't for her, we'd have been feral all our lives, and would have had litter after litter of kittens and maybe even have starved or froze by now. She rescued us, took us in, made us Wishers and once we were all good and healthy, adopted us to our mommy! 

Miss Chrystal is an awesome rescuer and now runs Winnie's Wish as a sanctuary since the 33 kitties she has are not adoptable. They will have a safe, happy home for as long as they live because of her! 

And now her birthday is coming! Next Wednesday as a matter of fact!! Mommy wants her to have a wonderful birthday so she's asking if you will make a donation or send a wish list item to Winnie's Wish as a huge birthday celebration! 

You can make a donation on the Daily Dose/Winnie's Wish blog page, using the button on their side bar.
Or you can click the link/graphic to go to the Amazon wish list page and something
https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2B5JHRZW1S7M
Or, if you don't have prime, or want to make it easy, you can use the donate button on my sidebar (use the send to friends and family option to avoid paypal fees) and I will add your donation to mine and other peoples and send a big order. 

Let's make this a wonderful birthday for Chrystal, and for the Wishers! However you can help will be so very appreciated!  Thank you!!!

Straw Hat Day and A Big Idea

 
 Leo: I know it's an old picture, but hey, at least we got a post out! Happy Straw Hat day people. Um, I think I'm a day late though? whoopsie!

Things were starting to get better with mommy, but everything is going south again. No, she don't have the 'rona, she's got other issues. So many issues you'd need a subscription to keep up! Bwahaha! No, seriously, she's struggling again but she's starting a new course of meds and has a nurse visit, so hopefully it was caught in time because going to the hospital right now is a huge no no! 

But we got bigger things to talk about, which is why we decided we had to post now!

Miss Chrystal's birthday is coming up! You know Miss Chrystal, she's the wonderful rescuer who runs Winnie's Wish, the rescue and shelter for unadoptable cats. (Leo, Glitter and Cashmere came from there, when she still had adoptable kitties!)
There are 33 cats in her care, she can't take in any more because she's full up. But that doesn't mean there's no need for help. In fact, there might be more because without new kitties to highlight, there are fewer readers, fewer donations... Even though 33 cats need a LOT of food and litter and laundry and.. well you get the idea. 

So my proposal is this: 
For Miss Chrystal's Birthday, let's all do what we can!
If you can make a donation, no matter how small, please do! 
If you can send a wish list item or two, please do! 
If you want to send wish list items but don't have amazon prime or can't give enough for a whole item/order, you are welcome to send the money you want to use to me and I will combine it with anyone else who donates, as well as from myself, and send as big an amazon order as I can!
  
Doesn't that sound like a great birthday idea for Chrystal?? 
Please help if you can, and even if you can't, lets send her lots of birthday greetings when it's closer to her actual birthday, May 27th!

Thank you everyone!

Leo's Gotcha Day!!

Oh I'm almost missing it! I haven't posted in so long because of health things that I nearly missed my sweet heart kitty's 9th Gotcha day!!

I would like to start by letting you all know that I appreciate your well wishes from Leo's last post. It means a lot that this cat community really cares and thinks about each other. I do indeed love you all!
I am improving, much better in fact, but just slowly trying to get back to normal. I fully intend to get back to blogging as soon as I am up to it! I have been trying to visit other blogs when I can, I don't always comment, but I'm there.

On to the Gotcha Boy! My darling Leo The Chinese Lion came to me 9 years ago from Winnie's Wish and I could not be happier! (and his sisters coming two years later only increased my happiness!) We drove 8 hours, and Chrystal drove close to two hours five hours*, to meet us and give me my sweetheart! My first sight of him I thought, oh my gosh, he's not little! At nine months old, I expected him to be a half grown teen sized cat. Not my giant boy! All long in the body and legs with his adorable fox-like face, I was instantly in love!

*edited, I messed that up, I knew she drove further and I wrote only 2 hours, no, she drove a long five hours and hit a freak snow storm on her way home to boot! She's awesome and always goes the extra mile for the kitties, and those who love them! Sorry Chrystal!


These are some of the first pictures I saw of him on the Winnie's Wish blog (daily dose of dogs, aka cats with your coffee)




How could I resist, right?? I have a thing for gray cats anyway and there he was! All gray, shy and adorable!

This is how he came to me with Chrystal, see how big he looked! 


I transferred him to a cage in my van and oh my, so big, so pretty, so scared! I had to take him out and he rode half the eight hour trip home on my shoulder! We bonded on that trip and he still clings to me and I adore him! 


He's leaning up against me in this picture, his favorite spot. Where he's spent most of my recovery also! His purr is healing!


Happy Gotcha Day Leo the Chinese Lion! You are so loved!!!


For Leo's gotcha day we are sending food and litter to Winnie's Wish. Times being what they are, Winnie's Wish is having a very hard time finding litter and food and other necessary supplies!
If you are able, and maybe in honor of Leo's gotcha day, or in honor of your own sweet kitties, could you please help to send Wish List items or donations to Winnie's Wish? There is a donate button on her blog sidebar.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2B5JHRZW1S7M

Amazon seems to be out of the cat food they use at the moment, so is chewy.. I did wind up finding some at Target's delivery service. If you want to send food or litter and cant find it or use the services I mentioned, you can use my donation button on my sidebar and I will make sure to find and send every cent of it in food and/or litter! If everyone sends a little, we can get them through this shortage crisis and keep the kitties of Winnie's Wish fed and cared for!
Thank you so much!!!!

Stay safe out there everyone! Love you all!

Message from Leo

Dear Friends, I know we've been missing for a while. A long while.. But please be patient with us. Our mommy is all sicky and weak and not up to helping us blog right now. Heck, she hardly has her lappytop out much at all! 
Don't worry, once I forgave her for being in the nasty ol' hospital for a week, I took over taking care of her and I make sure she has my purrs and furs to help her get better. 
Now if she'd just stop going out to see every doctor under the sun maybe we could get some good naps in... 
We will return! Just don't know when at the moment. Meows and head bumps to everyone!
