A Padded Cell For These Crazy Kittens
These four crazies have been playing so hard and climbing so high, I had to make some modifications to their quarters. Normally I line the bottom of the kitten cage with a large bath towel, but I was afraid someone was going to get hurt while rough housing, so I went out and bought a thick, cushy bathmat to offer a little padding on the cage floor.
From the start they've had a strong desire to go vertical, so I attached a couple of baskets to the cage sides so they had a coupe of "balconies" to climb up to. So far, they've been a huge hit, and most hours of the day you'll find a kitten or two hanging out in them. Or dangling from them. Or getting pushed out of them. Or diving from them. They've incorporated the balconies into nearly all their kitten games.
And here's a little video showing the four crazies enjoying their cage improvements.
On the fundraising front, I was so happy to see us roll past the $30,000 mark this weekend. I feel like we're at a good pace, but we do need to maintain it to reach that big $125,000 goal.
To help us stay on course, our Awesome Anonymous Donor has offered up a HUGE $3000 match for us today. Until 7:00 PM tonight, every single dollar donated will be matched until we hit the cap. So, if you donate soon, your donation will go twice as far!

Whatever amount you feel comfortable giving is fine - you know that very bit helps. And if you're not in a position to give, THAT''S FINE, too! It always breaks my heart when I see folks comment "I wish I could give" or "I wish I could give more". Whether you donate or not, you're still a valuable part of this community. You're supporting our cause by being here, commenting, and spreading the word. Thank you for that!
In case you weren't around here this weekend, I introduced the last of this litter. If you missed these posts, please scroll back and say hello to the cuties. There's a not-to-be-missed video, too!
I'm setting up the first of the naming rights auctions this morning, and as soon as they go "live" I will let you know! Can't wait to see who the winners are the what name the choose!
