Hey everybody, Truffles at the keyboard! There's a possibility I'm going to need you all to back me up here today because I might be in a little bit of trouble. But since we all know you visit our blog for me I know that you've got my back.
What did I do? Well, I hopped on the 'puter while Mommy was sleeping and deleted the post she had scheduled for today. (It had nothing to do with me, so it was fair game.) It's for a good cause though, honest! Today is Mommy's birthday and I want to do something extra special for her.
Let me explain...
It's probably pretty obvious how much Mommy loves kitties, right? Nothing would make her happier than having a house full of cats...okay, she would probably settle for 3 or 4. Unfortunately, between working, blogging, taking care of her elderly parents, and me, adding to our little family just isn't in the cards right now.
So here's what I'm thinking...
Ever since our special Sparkle blogged about sponsoring shelter cats for July's Blog the Change for Animals post, Mommy has been pretty obsessed with the idea. It's wonderful to make a blanket donation to a shelter, but by sponsoring a kitty you know exactly which fur babies your money is helping. It's the perfect way to have more cats in your life when you can't add any more to your home, at least until they find their forever families.
Mommy and I have been fortunate to make a little extra money thanks to our blog. We've been setting it aside as a little "nest egg" in case I ever need something special. (i.e. future vet bills) But as a gift for Mommy's birthday I want to use some of it for something else. For the next 24 hours I am having a comment-a-thon: for every comment we receive today I am donating $1 to PAWS of Connecticut. I'm hoping to be able to sponsor two or three kitties, and during the coming weeks we'll introduce you to our new friends!
To sweeten the pot a little I'm offering a giveaway too: 2 fun kitty cozies (The Cat Sitter's Nine Lives by Blaize & John Clement and To Die Fur by Dixie Lyle), and a box sign with a very wise saying: Love Your Cat.
Comment-A-Thon & Giveaway close tonight at 11:59 EST. (September 8, 2014) Winner will be chosen by Random.org; open internationally.
