  9. Wonderful! All those kitties are going to be helped with great food, support, health care and be all the more adoptable because of all of these fine folks! This is fantastic!

    I'm sorry I didn't participate in the FUNdraiser, instead I am giving to my local humane society in lieu of wedding favours. The kitties here can use a little extra help, much more than my guests can use custom wrapped chocolate bars.

    I'm curious as to how many of your readers get in the giving spirit and give to their local shelters when you do your drive.

  15. That's amazing! SO amazing! And another thing - I noticed on the firstgiving page that the lifetime total is over $293 squillion - with all the auction and poster money that's been raised over the years, we must have passed the $300 squillion mark by now! $300 SQUILLION!!!! That's a lot of squillions!

  23. To quote W.H. Auden: “In times of [great] joy, all of us wished we possessed a tail we could wag.”

  31. Congratulations to Laurie, Bean, Wylla, and everyone involved. I'm happy to be a tiny part of it and thankful for the generous donors who sponsored the matches.

    I love this site, not just for the happiness boost it gives or the knowledge that kittens are getting awesome help, but for the reminder that I am lucky to share my life and home with my own lovely cats.

    Laurie has inspired me to think of fostering in the future, though I am currently fulfilling my destiny as the crazy cat lady with the *gulp* nine that I have.

    They are grouped into two litters, both born of former strays. We took Mama #1 into the house, not knowing she was pregnant, and ended up keeping them all. Mama #2 was adopted by a friend when her kittens were weaned, but then the no-kill shelters and other groups were too full to take the babies. We hadn't raised them just to take them to the county shelter, so... I wouldn't change a thing, though. In retrospect, this also perfectly highlights the importance of supporting foster/shelter efforts.

    Congrats again to everyone!

  32. This is amazing! It was such a fun month. Laurie, I am so impressed by what you do and how you do it. I enjoyed being a small part of the success and can hardly wait until next year. Due to allergies, I can't have cats, so I swing by every day to get my kitten fix.

  33. Wonderful - and an amazing tribute to the community you created. Laurie! Enjoy the walk tomorrow!!!!
