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. 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.
The 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. 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.
Hi everyone! Please pray and purr for Pipo and Minko’s Dad.
Phoebe update: Murmur was still there so now we wait for the ultrasound on March 4th.
It looks like I am now the proud owner of this little ragamuffin. As you know, I brought him in to be neutered. I don’t know if it is the same in all states, but in Massachusetts you have to sign a paper saying if any wounds of unknown origin are found that you will quarantine them for 6 months or they will euthanize. I wasn’t going to allow a seemingly healthy cat get put down. When I went to pick him up, I knew we were in trouble because out paperwork was off to the side. The vet found several injuries on his neck. I think it was from fighting with other male cats, but it doesn’t matter what I think, this is the law. I know if I care for him for 6 months there is no way I am letting him go- I have attachment issues.
Right now he is totally segregated. If after 6 months he seems like he can be introduced to the others then I will get him FELV/FIV tested and go from there. I was thinking of names and so far all I can think of is Daryl the feral. Any other ideas? I will get better photos soon- I hope.
And my last ROAR today is for Here Today Animal Shelter in Brimfield, MA. I am volunteering at their SPAYghetti dinner this Sunday. I am also crocheting some toys to be sold at the dinner too. I am glad that I can help, I never volunteer at shelters because if I make contact with any cat, I want it.
Hi everyone! Today is ROAR day, but first, I must thank those of you that told Joanie toll prices were rising. Thank you so much, more like Joanie thanks you so much.
My ROAR this week is an auction : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.432679656943209.1073741892.173068479570996&type=3
It is called Gilbert’s Auction Page and there is a list of rescues and animals that will be helped by purchasing items. They have a lot of great items including crocheted hats. jewelry and many cat themed items. I donated a pair of cat knee highs and some of my crocheted toys.
I am very happy that there are bids on them, I always feel bad when I donate something and no one wants to bid on it.
Phoebe has lots to write about tomorrow.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you all for your care and concern about Stinky. She is going to the vet this afternoon. I will update on Facebook as soon as I know anything and I will post an update here Thursday.
Last week’s flash sale went so well that I decided to do it again to help 2 different causes. Please don’t feel obligated to buy something, I just thought someone might want these items and help cats at the same time.
First off, Phoebe’s Purrince’s Mum told us about a gofundme page to help rescue 40 cats that were abandoned a month ago by a home owner. Their story will break your heart, I am glad they are getting help now. Here is the link
And the other is for Marg
I have a Troll bead “kitten”, I couldn’t get a good photo, but you can see it on the Troll bead site It sells for $31 and I am selling this for $15, free shipping in the USA. If you buy it, I will have you pay the $15 to the gofundme to help the 40 cats.
And for $10 ( free US shipping) You get a catnip mat, 2 catnip Christmas ornaments, A book of Catmas Carols and a Cat Owner’s blank book to keep your cat’s information. Whoever buys this can pay with paypal for Marg’s Animals.
Phoebe will be starting her Christmas giveaway tomorrow. Please say a prayer and ppurr for Stinky.
Happy Wednesday everyone! I have 2 ROARS today, but I am doing things a little differently. When I started blogging, I was hoping to make some money to donate to my weekly roars. That hasn’t happened yet so I usually just donate with a credit card. This Christmas I am determined not to use my credit card so I have come up with another way to donate.
I always have items set aside for auctions to help kitties, so I am going to have my own auction, sort of, more of a flash sale. I have 2 items today and if someone wants to buy them, I will cover shipping in the US ( I wish I could afford anywhere). The buyer will pay through paypal, but not mine, one will go for Carmine and the other for Kiril being that last week’s ROAR didn’t help him at all.
Item #1 is for Carmine and it is $10 There is a stocking for kitty, a big catnip mouse, a catnip stocking, an egg that dispenses treats when whacked and 4 of my crocheted toys. If you want to buy it say so in the comments and the 1 st person gets to buy it.
Item #2 is for Kiril and it is $15
A black cat necklace, brand new, purchased at Kohls last Christmas.
Don’t forget to comment to enter the Hanukkah giveaway, Phoebe will announce the winner tomorrow.
Happy Wednesday everyone. I was going to do a Wordless Wednesday post until I saw something that needed a ROAR. I am sure many of you are familiar with Kiril, the cat Daddy over at The Opinionated Pussycat. He also used to organize The Carnival of Cats for The Cat Blogosphere. I knew he had some health problems, but I never knew the extent of them. Despite being on a limited income and having health problems, he adopted another kitty recently that he found on his way to work.
His sister set up a Go Fund Me page for him and I plan to donate next week . In case you are looking for a cause to donate to at this special time of year, here is the link : https://www.gofundme.com/zc735qfw
Reading his story makes me especially thankful for my health.
Time to go make some pies for Thanksgiving and some oatmeal white chocolate cranberry bars ( for energy on Black Friday).
Phoebe will see you tomorrow.
I caught her having a meeting- probably plotting how to get to the turkey.
Happy Wednesday everyone! My ROAR for this week is a reminder that there are still lots of items you can bid on to help support the Winnie’s Wish Auction.
I donated 5 items and so far 3 of them have bids. These 2 stuffed Rudolph collectibles are still only $5

Phoebe will see you tomorrow.
Wednesday is ROAR day, but first Phoebe wants to thank everyone for their purrs and prayers for her handsome purrince. He is on a special food that will hopefully make his tummy better.
This week’s ROAR is for Winnie’s Wish. I donated 4 items that I hope will get some bids. There is still time for you to donate too:
I added a post to the We Live Strong Today blog started by Ann of Zoolatry. It is a place to share stories of how cancer has effected you and/or those you love.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you all for trying to help me yesterday with the syringe. Ann ( http://www.mypawsitivelypets.com/ ) and Flynn (http://twodevoncats.blogspot.com/ ) were familiar with it and helpful. I ended up breaking mine so I had to get a new one at the vet, they also showed me how to work it. My niece is the hospital manager so she made a note to tell all the techs that they need to show people how to use them before they leave with one.
Joanie wants me to tell you her tummy was featured on Katzenworld:
My ROAR this week is for The Animal Rescue Site. I know most of you are familiar with it, but in case you are not, you are missing out. It is a great place to shop for kitty items for your cat and for you and when you do, you are also helping to feed shelter animals.
I recently purchased a ring for myself for $12.95 and in doing that, it buys 14 bowls of food. My hubby and I outgrew our original wedding bands a long time ago. About 10 years ago, I bought some cheap bands to wear with the hope we would someday be able to wear the originals. We only wear them when we go out and I guess I go out more than he does because mine is all scratched. I thought a ring with paw prints would be a good replacement. I would display mine on my hand, but apparently I have already outgrown this one : https://theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com/store/ars/item/58710/paw-parade-stainless-steel-ring?source=4-2835-26 I am pretty sure it will fit when the humidity goes away and my hand isn’t as puffy.
We are praying for more sick friends: http://wildcatwoodscats.blogspot.com/
and our friend LadyBird needs prayers too: https://doggiecaperz.wordpress.com/
Phoebe and Lucy are having a giveaway tomorrow.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is ROAR day and I am still ROARing for Billy of Meezer Tails. He has a lot of medical isues and may need an eye removed. I know many of you have already helped, but I thought I would keep spreading the word:
I am off to Dakin in Springfield, MA. Someone asked me if I could help get her cat fixed so of course I said yes. She paid the $50, but I did the transporting. Dakin keeps the females overnight so I need to go get her today. Do you know of any places that do that?
Phoebe is still on vacation, having a great time with Flynn and her purrince and so many others.http://meezertails.blogspot.com/2015/08/we-are-here-wherever-that-is.html Joanie or one of the kitties will write the post tomorrow.
