    1. I like that any names of cats are just stated, but if any humans are mentioned in the IBKC, we have to specify that they're humans. It's like a parallel universe for cats! :)

    2. It's the IBKC Universe of Cats and Kittens, at work, Cynthia! Our feline luvvies are a given. We humans, we're just along for the ride.

  6. Senior cat day is always the most poignant for me. Virtually every post makes me wish I could hug the person who has loved their present and past senior kitties - we all know that we honor our past kitties by getting a new kitty to love. But you feel how much they loved them. It is very sweet. Hugs to all the donors today who give in memory of their companions. And a big hug for Laurie, too.

    1. Each year, senior cat day always makes me tear up for the same reasons you mention. Tear up, and then donate.

  7. Yay for senior kitties--my baby turns 17 soon! :) And she still acts like a kitty racing around our house! And Yay for Laurie, Craig, Charlene and Wylla!!!

  8. It is worth repeating that you are blessed if you know, or have known, the love of a senior kitty!

    My Baal (16) and Boo (21) saw me through the best and worst milestones of my life and were the purest forms of love I have known! :') My current crew have big paws to fill!

  9. If Anonymous hadn't pointed out the $200,000 total for all the fund-raising I would have missed it when I donated. Congratulations indeed! Charlene and Wylla should get extra massages along with the treats!

    1. Just mentioned above:
      Actually, if I'm not mistaken, she went over $200,000 last year. Not all the donations show under the team name.

      We are at this moment pushing a quarter-million. If you add the totals of her Monday email, that was $224,000. Add in today's and we're looking at a $250,000 in the next day or two! All for cats!

    2. Yes, that number is off. It doesn't factor in the money raised off-line with our auctions and poster sales. We're around 244K right now.

    3. Oh, I see - even better-er!! :)

  10. I agree Amy- to love and be loved by a senior kitty is a blessing. I still love and miss my two Caesar (20) and Elliott (15).

  11. This is so awesome! It's only the 3rd day and you've already wrangled 20 squillion from us! Your friends and humans are so grateful to you, Wylla and Bean!

    You both are simply radiant in the IBKC set, btw!

    I hope you get in a few good naps between all those squillions!

  12. WOW!, 1/5 of the way to your goal in just 2 days!!! Good going Bean and Wylla!

  13. Unionize, Bean. You're a natural leader #BeanieHoffa

  14. Definitely a good idea to give Bean what she wants. She's looking like it won't be pretty if she doesn't. Fur will fly if that girl isn't happy!

  15. Wylla is a dream. You are a lucky owner!

  16. With Charlene & Wylla leading the charge, this year's goal or 100 squillion will be met and surpassed long before the month is up. Keep it up, girls!

  17. I believe these two lovelies working the IBKC phone banks this year might have some amazing things hiding beneath their adorable paws...!
