We've got some exciting news today! Wee Wylla weighs three pounds!!! She was hovering just below for weeks and finally, FINALLY she's over the three-pound mark! Of course, she's still half of what she should be for a kitten of her age, but she is making progress, and that makes me happy!
Though she's behind physically, in the brains department, she excels. No "Pat the Bunny" for this kitten - she's tackling big books now!
I hope you all enjoyed Alumni Week. We sure did! It was so great seeing all those sweet faces again. They all looked so healthy, loved and well-adjsuted, didn't they? The siblings that were adopted together looked so happy together still, and the kittens that moved into homes with pre-existing cats, all seemed to be getting along so well. They make me proud!
Thank you to all the families for providing all those wonderful pictures and stories. I noticed MANY alumni making donations too - thank you for that as well!!
We still have a few more updates that we couldn't squeeze in last week - I'll be posting those over the next week or so.
We're past the half-way point in our FUNdraiser - geeze it's going fast! These next 12 days we'll have to push hard - we've still got a long way to go to reach our goal! Fortunately, we've got lots of matching donation challenges coming up to help make that happen - starting with a big one today!
Our friend Cynthia is back yet again and is offering up a $2500 challenge for us!!! It will run until 9:00 PM (Pacific Time).
You know how this works - for every dollar we donate, she'll match it until we reach that $2500 cap. SO, if we meet her fabulous match, our $2500 will turn into $5000!!
To get in on this wonderful match, and get your donation dollars doubled, please visit our FUNdraising page and make a tax-deductible donation to help the homeless cats and kittens out.
Thank you once again for giving these incredible matches, Cynthia. And hank you for inspiring so many people to give. Tthanks to all who have stepped forward to help us meet those matches, and thanks to all who have helped spread the word.
The kindness and generosity of this community is staggering. I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again and again - I hope you know how special you are.
Please stay tuned, friends! There's lots more to come today!
