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.


Wednesday’s ROAR

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.

ROAR for Texas Kitties

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is ROAR day, but first I will give you a Spooky update. Unfortunately, the vet I wanted is on vacation so I left a message with another vet that had dealt with Spooky in the past. She called back when I wasn’t here and my hubby took the call. All I got out of him was that she didn’t think he could have that. I guess I have to wait until next week to check with the other vet. Thank you all for your input and suggested links yesterday. I am going to print some of that out to back my theory when I call back. Also thanks for the purrs and prayers.

Now on to the ROAR-as most of you know, Texas has been getting a lot of rain and floods which has displaced many families and pets. Miss Sneakers of The Opinionated Pussycat has made a list of several shelters that are helping these pets and are in need of help: http://www.opinionatedpussycat.com/2015/05/fnn-special-repurrt-the-texas-floods-of-memorial-day-2015.html . Each one has many ways listed on their website to help. The first one I clicked on was Hill County Paw Pals and they are connected to Amazon Smile. Whenever I use Amazon, I go through Amazon Smile and the next time I do, I will make sure they get the donation.

Be sure to visit Phoebe tomorrow, she had me crochet a big fish that would be great for bunny kicking and she plans to have a giveaway.
