Live From the IBKC Fundraiser! Featuring the Peabodys!

The Peabodys (of Pitter Pats fame) volunteered to take over the phones for a spell and give The Darlings a little break. The lovely and enchanting Bridget Peabody is working the tote board. How are we doing, Bridget?
Well, things are going great! We're just about $700 away from meeting our goal of $8000! I wouldn't be surprised at all if we hit our target today, and had to raise our goal AGAIN! Malcolm, how are things going over there in the phone banks?
The phones have been ringing off the hooks here this morning. Fluffy McPants from Walla Walla just made a pledge of $25.... Mr Mittens from Sheboygan just donated $50 and Princess... oh, she just called to find out if I was available. Wasn't sure if she meant available as in "adoptable" or as in "single" either way,, it's a yes. Now,, over to you, Raymond...
Thank you, Malcolm. You're doing a great job over there. Nice tux, by the way. We look like a couple of prom dates...

OK,, now seriously folks,,, I just wanted to let you know that as soon as we reach our $8000 goal, we've got a special treat for all of you out there in IBKC land. We've got an update and very sweet picture of IBKC alums, Tressa and Neville Lovejoy, which we will be posting as soon as we hit the mark! Now how's that for a little incentive?

CLICK HERE to make a donation to the IBKC fundraiser for the Humane Society of Tacoma/Pierce County.

Thanks to all of you for helping us reach our goal!


  1. Oh, I wish I could donate again, but right now I can't - I really want to see that update! I am hoping to get another donation in but this is not a good week for it - darn it! The Peabodys are doing a great job by the way!

  2. Id love to donate too but I dont think it would work in UK Pounds...

    Can't wait to see Tressa again - I bet shes a lovely ladycat now!

  3. OMG. This is so exciting! I love how the kitties pose in front of the current total, keeping us all in suspense. And how kind of the Peabodys to spell the Darlings. Nothing like teamwork.

    Can hardly wait to see the alumni photo.

  4. Where in the heck have I been? Pitter Pat's website is completely new to me. It's like discovering a parallel universe of delightful goodness by accident!

    Though I am not usually a squeally type of woman, I'll say this for Pitter Pat's


  5. Love the Peabody boys. Dressed up like prom dates! Heh!

  6. Yay for the Peabodys!! Evidently they spotted your last post, Laurie, and saw that the fundraising efforts had Hubie and Lucinda too pooped to pop!

    Not too far to go now - dig deep, IBKC fans!

  7. Thank you dear Peabody's. THe Darlings are worn out with working the phones and keeping us humans on our toes and informed.

    It is sweet of you to show your apurrciation to Laurie and Miss Butterbean!

  8. Fluffy McPants! your killing me with cuteness. Can't wait to see the lovejoys.

  9. Yay, IBKC-Pitter Pats crossover! I can't wait to see the total raise again.

  10. it's fun to watch the counter go to 90-plus percent! christine

  11. I can't wait to see the updated photos of Tressa!

    Thank you, Peabodys, for helping out the Darlings.

  12. No Darby? I love that little chicken nugget.

  13. Sam ~ Laurie is too polite to say so, but Mr. Darby was not on his best behavior during the Peabody's stint on the phone lines. He deconstructed the set. Twice.

  14. And is Charlene helping on the phones? Or is she just helping keep the kittens cool and collected with regular "Bean Baths"?

  15. LOL @ Sue, that Darby is a MESS (as we say in the South)....you just can't take him anywhere ;o) Love the crossover with the Peabodys, great idea!!!

  16. You sweet Peabody loves! You knew the Darlings could use a paw up and you were there!

    It's so exciting to the tote board racing to the goal - with time to spare before the walk!

    Now... to infinity and beyond!

  17. A precious Peabodys in tuxedos & stripes! They done good... !
