Y'all make me so happy! So many people joined in on the Package Party for Chrystal's birthday and sent donations and wish list items to Winnie's Wish! Thank you thank you!!
And a bunch of you donated to my paypal so I could combine them and make a big package purchase and boy did we get to send a lot! Between those donations and a few commissioned cat beds, we raised $350!! Which translated into a really really big Wish List order!
Chrystal posted pictures of that package today, minus some bags of dry cat food that arrive later today, so pop over there and see what all of us have done together!
Thank you again!

Happy Memorial Day! And a huge thank you to those who serve, who have served, and especially to those who gave all in service!
Leo: Thank you!
It's the 31st, that means, as promised, this is the last day I'm going to bug you all about Chrystal's Birthday Package Party!
If you've joined in already, THANK YOU!! If you haven't, please consider it! As little as $5 can help the kitties of Winnie's Wish!

Ok, so I'm a day late... I kept thinking all day that I better get this done or I'd never get it posted on Caturday, and.. well you see how well that turned out. I still wanted to do it because I wanted to play with Cashmere's pretty picture from last Sunday's selfie. I used lunapic and had fun with it!
And the original
Just a few more days until I stop talking about the Chrystal's Birthday Package Party! Still time to get in on the fun!
I'm hoping that together we can make this a birthday to remember by supplying the Winnie's Wishers with so many packages and donations that she doesn't have to worry about where the next week's litter and food and oh so many other things is going to come from. Every bit helps! Like I said, even $5 helps, it's like ten cans of food, and when you combine it with other $5 donations it can really add up!
You can see THIS POST for all the details but basically there are three ways to help:Donate on the sidebar of her Daily Dost Blog, Use the Amazon Wish List, Or use the donate button here on my blog and I will combine your donation with other donations to make a big order on amazon. I will be sending my Wish List order after the 1st to make sure I've given anyone who wants to give this way the chance to do so by the end of the month, which is Monday. :)
(whenever possible, use the 'send to a friend' option on paypal because then they don't take any fees out and more pennies and dollars go to the kitties, if that doesn't work when using the donate button (havent tested it) then feel free to send to me using my email anniclan AT aol DOT com, thank you!)
Please share the last few days of our Package Party! And a huge thank you to those who already have!

Today's Throwback comes from May 8th, 2012. A fitting post seeings as today is Chrystal's birthday!! Happy Birthday Chrystal!!
fyi, I did not have the girls yet, just Leo and Star. So when I'm talking about Leo being included, so are the girls!
Looky Looky I Got A Booky!
I did! I got my book! The bestest book in the world! Know why? Because
my dear friend Chrystal wrote it!!! And it's about ANIMALS! And that
means CATS!! And do you know what's even better than a book about CATS??
A book that has MY cat in it!
That's right! Leo the Chinese Lion makes his entry into Chrystal's Rescue near the end of the book! My kitty, my heart cat, my sweet snuggly baby boy is FAMOUS! He's in print! He's the handsome hero at the end of the book that gets rescued and gets to live happily ever after with ME!
Ok, it might be the pain drugs still talking.. but I'm seriously excited about this!!!! And I'm not the only one!
Seriously Leo?? Little brat! I'll read it while you're sleeping... Or I'll read it to you! that'll work!
But you people can get your own copy! And when you do, part of the moneys for it go to help the rescue kitties! Kitties like Leo!
Go to Chrystal's site to see about it, Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with Your Coffee) (this post talks about the book)
And go HERE to get the book! Yes, you can get it from amazon, but then the kitties only get half of the money they'd get if you went straight to the publisher!
And seriously, see the size of it? It's super thick and really big! (remember Leo's a giant cat) So aside from being a great book about a great subject writen by a great woman, it's a great value pound for pound! :D
See why it's fitting? Chrystal's book, and today is Chrystal's birthday! Yeah, I know you got that already. ;) And yes, you can still get the book! And yes, buying one (or multiples!) helps the wishers!
So you know what I'm sharing next! Still time to get in on the Chrystal's Birthday Package Party! I"m planning on running the banner through the end of the month! And I'm holding off on using the funds sent to me already until then also, then I will make a big package from all the donations that came to my paypal for just this purpose! (use the donate button on my sidebar for that)
You can also send donations to the donate button on the Daily Dose blog, Chrystal's blog, to send cash which help with vet bills, meds, and other things the wish list doesn't cover. Also, there's a link to the Wish List to send your very own package!
Please join in and do what you can to make this a wonderful package party! Like I said yesterday, even $5 helps! And share share share! Thank you!!

I hope you've all seen the Chrystal's Birthday Package Party by now!
And I hope you have, or plan to join in!
It doesn't take much! Even $5 would be a help! $5 could get about ten can's of cat food! If you combine your $5 with other people's $5 it really adds up! Some people have already sent me money to combine into a large package purchase on the Wish List, if you want to get in on this joint package, please use the donate button on my sidebar! (or paypal to anniclan AT aol DOT com, send as a friend and paypal doesn't take a fee!)
Details are on THIS POST, check it out if you haven't yet! And don't forget to share!

How is it possible that sometimes I forget just how pretty Cashmere is? She posed beautifully for her selfie this week and I think she's swoon-worthy, so watch out mancats out there!
Please don't forget about Chrystal's Birthday Package Party! It's so close to the end of the month, but we can start sending stuff now! Let's make sure she's got lots of packages for the Wishers by the time her birthday arrives!
Details can be found on THIS POST, but basically lets use the Winnie's Wish Wish List and send packages, or use the donate button on her blog, Daily Dose of Dogs AKA Cats With Your Coffee, or use the donate button on my sidebar and I will pool all the money sent here to get a large package from the wish list sent to her!
Feel free to use the banners!

Love this pretty girl. She's Greg's baby all the way, she waits for him, watches him, and demands his lap any time he sits down. Yes, he's owned by a kitty whether he likes it or not!
Notice the line down her nose? it's one of her cutest features along with her dark eye liner and her gray kissy lipstick, the latter of which rarely shows in pictures.
Updates: Greg is still down with his broken foot, another month probably. Slow healing. But he's going to try going back to work three days a week, fingers and paws crossed that he doesn't do any more damage!
We lost Greg's dad in the early morning hours after Easter. With Covid and other issues the funeral was a whole week later. It's kind of why we've been a bit absent.
I've been in therapy again, hoping to get strong enough to get out of the house again and to work on fundraiser stuff more. I have some projects in the works and will show them off soon. And since it's out there on other blogs on my behalf, I'll just say that yes, I do take commission work for many of the items I put on auction; puffy beds, crochet beds, nip toy sets, taco toys, lots of it. I will probably put something up about it with pictures and more info sometime soon. It's exciting to have items going out without the work and worry of a big auction at the moment!
Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all have a great day!

Just realized that today is my blogoversary! Oh my gosh! Ten years of posting about my kitties!
Since I'm not prepared for anything... long week, many unexpected things happening... I am going to post my first blogoversary post!
IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY!
I had never thought about blogging, ever! Even though I loved loved loved reading kitty blogs every day. But when people on Chrystal's blog found out that I was adopting him, they kept saying I should blog so they could keep track of Leo. I was surprised really, then intrigued, then I said, what the heck, I'll try it!
Then I met so many wonderful people! And I found so many more blogs! It was like, wow, there's a whole bunch of other people out there as crazy about cats as I am! Cool! So I was hooked! Now I can't imagine not blogging and I have all of you to thank for it!
I know I recently shared in two separate posts about how I got Leo, first for the share your kitten pictures day and then for Leo's gotcha day. And before that, his birthday. So I'm not going to go into that again. You're welcome to scroll through my archives if you want to read about that, especially that first week or so of posts last year.
Right now, I just wanna celebrate!
One way I'm gonna celebrate is by buying Chrystal's book! Please please scroll down and read about it in yesterday's post! And click over to her blog, Daily Dose, and read about it there too! She does so much for hurting and feral and abandoned animals, and by buying her book, you can help her help them.
