Cozy Beds for Cats and Kittens!

Our friend Natalie, mom to Scarlett and Melly, has offered up a wonderful match for today.   It's not your usual dollar-for-dollar match - instead of matching dollars with dollars, she's matching dollars with cozy kitty beds for shelter cats!  Warm, fuzzy, fleecy, kitty beds handmade by Natalie!

How wonderful and generous!    Shelter cats love these beds - they warm their cubbies and give them a soft, comfortable place to nap.

With the help of Scarlett and Melly, Natalie stitched up a couple of beds so you can see how much kitties enjoy them.

This is Scarlett.

And this is Melly.

So how does this challenge work?  For every $20 donated today, until midnight tonight,  Natalie will make and donate one cozy fleece bed to our shelter - up to a total of 50 beds!  

To get your dollars matched with wonderful kitty beds, please visit our FUNdraising page before midnight (Pacific Time) and make a tax-deductible donation!   

Thanks for your generous offer, Natalie!  And thanks in advance to all who take advantage of this offer.

To learn more about Scarlett and Melly's adventures, please visit their blog.


  1. Yes, the adventurous Scarlett and Melly! What a generous matching gift. Way to go, Natalie!

  2. Awww, what a lovely offer! Those beds look cat-perfect, and they're easy to wash and stuff, too. Awesome, Natalie!!

  3. Wonderful! On behalf of Tacoma shelter cats ~ THANK YOU, NATALIE! And thanks to Scarlett & Melly for test driving those beds, and for their willingness to give up 50 of them. :)

  4. Thank you, Natalie! I've been following your blog practically since the beginning, and this kind of generosity from you totally comes as no surprise, you have such a warm heart. And I know the shelter kitties will feel the love in every bed you make. If you wouldn't mind posting the directions on your blog, I'd love to dig out the ol' sewing machine and trying a few for myself!

  5. Thanks for letting me help with this, Laurie. It makes me happy to think of the shelter kitties having something soft and comfy to lay on while they await their forever homes. I'm excited to start sewing!

  6. What a great idea Natalie! Wish I could sew I would whip some of those beds up too.
    Hope a bunch get donated!!!!
    Scarlett and Mellie are very sweet, and look quite cozy!

  7. Scarlett and Melly have inspired me to make my first donation. :-)

  8. Natalie, what a delightful way to help all the little, and big, kitties. I know that I am suffering from old lady brain, but I don't know how to find Natalie's blog. Help please. I did click on the place where it said to visit their blog (probably stupid, I know) but that didn't work. I need to find it because I just can't resist anyone who would name their kitties Scarlett and Melly. Thanks. And good work Laurie, I wish we were not living on my husband's VA disability payments so that I could make another, and larger donation. Some of you are so generous. Have a good day Charlene and Wylla, and don't work too hard.

    1. Try clicking on the link again. It's working now.


  9. - This is Melly as a little kitten - This was the post that Sue did that made me fall in love with her...

  10. Yay Natalie! You're awesome and so are Melly and Scarlett for helping out :D

  11. Natalie - what a brilliant idea! Yay for you and for Scarlet and Melly for being willing to test-drive the beds! YAY!

  12. Thank you, Natalie! Those beds are adorable, as are Scarlett and Miss Melly. Hopefully lots more folks will donate because of your generosity and hard work. And that of Laurie, Craig, Charlene, and Wylla. :)

  13. I have been a fan of Scarlett and Melly for a long time, so I, along with my kitties Harley and Alice, decided to donate today to help them help the shelter kitties. Thanks, Natalie!

  14. I love this idea! Though from the looks of that photograph Melly isn't going to be giving up that bed.

  15. Natalie, your gift just oozes love and compassion. Bless your dear heart!!
