Cozy Bed Challenge

Two years ago, we had a super fun match where instead of dollars,  donations were matched with handmade fleece beds for the shelter cats.  It was Natalie's idea, and with the help of her feline assistants Scarlett and Melly, she generously stitched over 50 beds for Humane Society cats and kittens.

The shelter cats and kittens love these beds because they are soft and comfortable and they help make their cubbies nice and cozy.

Our friend Mary loved Natalie's idea and last year she volunteered to stitch up to fifty blanks for another challenge.  The challenge was met, and Mary got busy.

Here's the stack she made last year.


Here's her Sophie giving the blankets a test drive.  


Mary is back, has a huge pile of fleece, and is ready to get stitching.

SO, for every $25 dollars that's donated today, Mary will be matching it with a fleece bed for a shelter cat!  She's game for stitching up to 70 beds, so I do hope we'll put her to work, and meet the cap on this mach! This challenge ends at 7:00 PM Pacific Time.


We also have a $1750 matching donation challenge from an anonymous lover of kittens and friend of the IBKC. For every dollar you donate, she will match it until we hit the $1750 cap, or until 7:00 PM Pacific Time, which ever comes first.

That's right friends, your donations are getting matched with cozy cat beds for shelter cats and money, too!  I can't think of a better time to donate!

If you would like to make a donation and help provide cozy, handmade beds for shelter cats AND get your dollars doubled too, please visit the Firstgiving page.

Thank you so much for giving so much of your time, Mary. Thank you for your awesome match, anonymous kitty lover, and thanks in advance to all who participate in this match!

I love this challenge so much, and I hope we reach our cap!

Thank you friends! I'll be back with more today, so stay tuned!  

Oh, and don't forget we've got the last of our first name auctions ending at Noon today. If you want to get in on the bidding (it's climbing high!) please visit here.
