thank you, one and all!

to efurry cat'n'bean'n'woofie'n'bird'n'whoefur voted for me (or even thought about it):
Thank you furry, furry much!
it means lots to me that a jurry of my peers peered at me and said they liked me. usually, i'm the one causing trouble and gettin' squirted. it's a nice change to be causing fun and laughter! i know there was some furry tough competition, and it's an honor to be in such company. when we started bloggin', we were welcomed warmly and have been befriended many times. we has such a nice community--we are proud to say we're cats, and we blog!!

now, mom said from the time i picked little scooter, that even if i din't win, we would sponsor him. so we're gonna add to the prize from skeezy. and we'd like to challenge each of you to do the same--not scooter if ya doesn't wanta, certainly. but maybe the kitty you chose. or another kitty entirely. or maybe one not even at best friends sanctuary. (we donates to a local no-kill shelter here in missouri, too, but best friends is special to us 'cause it's special to skeezy and his fambly.)

but please donate SOMETHING to a shelter SOMEWHERE!! there are so many of us who suffer, who are alone, who need medication, who need lovins, who need a safe, warm place to sleep, & uncontaminated food and water. shelters, especially no-kill sanctuaries like best friends, can give these things only as long as we lucky, blessed kitties and our beans make it possible.

even small amounts are welcome--please read skeezy's message in the very first comment on this post. if you can afford it without discombobulating your budget, please donate. you'll sleep better tonight. thank you. *what the . . . how'd i get up on this flea-soap box? i better get down!*

we loves you all, you know!

Congratulations! My mommy volunteers at The Animal Friends Humane Society the only open admission shelter in Butler County, OH. www.animalfriendshs.org
When her purse is very light, she volunteers her time and goes to walk the doggies and play with the kitties to help them be social an more adoptable. Mommy says you don't have to always donate money, especially if you don't have it, you can donate your time and get those poor shelter animals out of the stinky cages for a while.
Cross your paws and hope the Levy passes this November. It would raise enough money to built a new building for them, replacing the nasty, tiny, dirty, 54 year old one they are in now (mommy says all the volunteers and employees are great and work hard, it isn't there fault the building is grossly outdated).

Junior said...

Congrats Nitro. We love those cats from Best Friends also. We posted pictures of the cats we sponser there on our blog. And we are also part of the Catster group Skeexiz mentioned, so we can also participate to sponser more kitties.
