E and a ROAR

Hi everyone! I haven’t done a ROAR in some time so I thought I would do one today, but first the A-Z Challenge. Today is E day so I have a book Edited by Charles Elliott, The Quotable Cat Lover. DSCF0951 It is filled with great quotes about cats from Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf. James Joyce, Yates, Abraham Lincoln and many others. It as published in 2004, but I am sure you can find it on Amazon or Half.com.

Now for the ROAR, Kitty Daddy, Kiril, of The Opinionated Pussycat, is a hard-working man who has trouble making ends meet. Despite that, he found a kitten last fall and adopted her to join his other 2 cats.. He needs to get her spayed ( we all know how important that is) as well as getting all 3 up-to-date on their vaccines. There is a place to donate on the sidebar of his blog if you would like to help.

I am selling 2 items, if someone wants to buy them, I will have you pay by donating on his site. The prices include shipping and I will also add in 2 catnip toys.

DSCF0988 DSCF0989The first item is a cat shaped puzzle box that was purchased from a Fair Trade group and made in India. One recently sold on ebay for $20 plus 7 shipping. I am selling this for $20 ( price includes shipping and 2 crocheted toys).

I also have a canvas purse/bag, navy with white print. DSCF0992 It has a zippered top and a zippered section inside. It would make a great book bag or a purse. $15 ( includes shipping and 2 crocheted toys).

Thank you! Phoebe will see you tomorrow and she has a giveaway planned.



  1. That is a sweet kitty puzzle. And meowmy love bags to cart her junk around…MOL!
    But we just spent way too many green papers at the vet fur dog-guy today…and more in the future s he will also need a dental…
    Sheesh there is alway ssomething:(

    We hope that kind kitty daddy gets all the help he will need.

    1. I am sorry Mr. Jack Freckles is sick again. I am praying for him. XO

  2. I hope Elvira’s, Sneakers and Friday’s human gets the money to get Friday spayed soon! We all know how important it is for us girl kitties… it’s kind of like a rite of passage.

  3. You are so kind to try and help Kiril out – we don’t know him but will visit him through the link you gave us. All of us who are cat parents want to make sure we take the best care of our “kids” as possible – sometimes that’s a huge expensive that’s hard to deal with and we need help. Bless you for caring so much!

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

    1. Thank you. I wish we could include our kitties on our health insurance. I know there are cats ones, but they are set up differently. XO

  4. What a surprise to see that the Kitty turned into a puzzle. That ROAR must be help for Kiril, we’re going to purray for that! Extra Pawkisses for the occasion 🙂 <3

  5. Hmmm….I’ll have to think about that bag! I have to cart around a ton of medications, inhalers, epipens…..hehe. It’s such a cute bag.

    I’ll have to check out the book, too. I really like quotes!

  6. I love me some cat quotes, so I’ll definitely be checking out this book. Thank you for sharing it with us! And thank you for always being the kind, caring person that you are!

  7. That puzzle box is darling. We wish we could help but at the moment, it’s just not possible. It’s very kind of you to try to help.

    1. No problem, I just thought I would try. I know we all have a lot of expenses to keep our own kitties healthy.

  8. It’s so nice of you to help raise money for the Kitty Daddy.
    I can’t wait to see what you do when you get to the hard letters like Q and X.
    Well, xxoo,
    Maggie, Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red.

    1. I have all my letters planned out 🙂 Some are a bit of a stretch, but they will work. XO

  9. That book of quotes sounds very interesting and fun! 🙂 How is Brody doing? Any more excursions downstairs? We hope he is getting braver with each passing day 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  10. That sounds like a cool book…the mom loves quotes about cats. And it’s nice of you to help Kiril. We hope Friday can get her operation.

    1. Me too- it was tough for me to get it apart for the photo and even tougher to put it back together. 🙂

  11. If you haven’t got an offer for the kitty puzzle box yet, please email me, I would love to have it in exchange for the donation for such a great cause!

    1. I think he only has the one donation so he needs at least $40 more, some of the costs are reduced at a clinic near his work so that will help. Thanks for asking.
