Are You Ready? Are WE ready?

It's THAT time of year again!  This Thursday, we'll be kicking off the annual IBKC FUNdraiser for the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County. For those of you who are new to the IBKC, it's quite an event, and the funnest FUNdriser you'll ever see.  It's filled with all sorts of heartfelt moments, there's lots of cheering and happy tears, we all give a little,  and together we raise SQUILLIONS to help homeless cats and kittens. It's the feel-good moment of the year!

The Kibblesmiths will be taking their first shift in the phone bank, and we've been training hard, but as you can see, they are not quite there yet.




I really hope they're up to speed by Thursday morning because Day One is always huge, AND we're starting things off with a HUGE matching donation challenge. They're going to have to be in top form to take all of your calls!

Please wish us luck.

  14. OMG - climbing the curtains isn't appropriate behavior for call takers! Keep practicing. Squee!

  15. Perhaps Sheer Drapes were not the best choice...but I am counting down the days until it is Senior Cat Donation Day!

  17. Oh, dear...ladies, I don't think you were paying attention to Ms. Laurie earlier when she was telling you the rules for working in the phone center. Evie, no climbing the walls! Maeve, phones are not noms!

  18. Hee hee, silly kittens! You're supposed to take phone "calls" not "crawls." Oh, all right. Here's my wallet. Just take whatever you like. Buy yourselves something shiny.

  19. I'm looking forward to another fundraiser with another batch of adorable kittens! They may not be good at answering calls but they definitely will encourage us to donate.

  20. Falling out of my chair with giggles....Evie totally is trying to get to the source of the noise--she just hasn't figured out where it's coming from! Big Smile! And knocking the phone off the counter--oh my Miss Maeve! Squeeeee!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hear Maeve thinking "Puppy dog! Why can't I just have opposable thumbs like a normal person?"

    ***Note: I'm guessing "puppy dog" might be an appropriate kitten equivalent of "darn it"

  22. Oh my, that is adorable. I was wondering, will you have another poster this year? I have the last two and would love to add to my collection.

    1. Not this year, Claire. We'll do it again in the future, but not this season.

  23. Jenna was relaxing beside my laptop. When the phone in the video rang she jumped up and gave me the stinkeye. She thinks the kittens need more training, too ;-)
