Caturday For Special Cats
HIYA! SAVANNAH HERE!
My Mom, Dad and I share everyone’s shock at the passing of 20 sweet innocent children and 7 adults in yesterday’s tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. I did not include the 28th victim as that was the killer, and we only mourn that he chose to end his life by taking so many with him.
Many bloggers, Twitter anipals and FB posts are being written which say how we feel even better than we could ourselves. So we just want to say “DITTO” to all those who have spoken their shock, horror, grief today. We especially appreciate the post put up on The Chronicle of Zee and Zoey today.
So we will add our candle to all those others…
And, we want to share something that we hope will lift spirits today. It is about a gift I was given by Chewy.com which allowed me to pass it on to some SPECIAL CATS…and I hope you will stop a moment and share in the joy these Special Need kitties found in some things so many of us kitties may take for granted because we have so much ourselves.
Chewy.com offered me a promo code worth $50 to spend as I chose, and asked only that I post about my ‘experience’ shopping with them on line. As many of you know, I did use some of that to send holiday gifts to my virtual brother Boots, at the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary. I posted about wrapping up his gifts December 9th.
Now about shopping with Chewy.com on line…and this is impawtant to know because this is how I ended up being able to send so much to HOKAFI SP #1 kitties. So, I messed up when I ordered for Boots, I thought I could send a bit to him then order more and send to HOKAFI. I have NEVER had a ‘promo code’ before, and did not know I could only send to one address. My mistake.
Chewy.com was so generous. They gave me another whole ‘promo code’ for another $50 to use. So I got to spend ALL of that second gift on the Special Need Kitties at HOKAFI.
Lemony Squeezes post is beautiful and I cannot match her pawsome post…so purrlease, purrlease, go visit, click here.
And if you don’t have time to visit Lemony…then here are some of her photos…I hope these precious faces, showing such joy and contentment will help to lift spirits of all who read this post…there is still joy in this world…and I for one am grateful I can experience it through seeing these sweet kitties, many who have only weeks or months to live, being able to find playfulness and pleasure.
…the box is opened and carefully inspected by Katarina, who wrote the post, and Billy Bob and Finn…
…ok…let’s get these packages out and ripped!!…
…oh my…Nutmeg says I luvluvluv the feel of this nip toy on my face….mmmmmm..nice!…
…and check out this…this one is even nice with the paper still on it!!…
…and how can we not feel joy when we see Katarina’s HAPPY DANCE!!!…
This kitty knows how to appreciate nip!!
I hope you find some comfort in knowing there is still good in our world and in our country, meaning the USA. Today it may seem hard to find that good, so Mom and I decided to go on with our planned post for today…it brought us pleasure and comfort and joy…we hope it does for all who read today.
Finally, thank you to Chewy.com for making this, and Boots gifts, possible. And, for helping this adult rescue cat learn how to use ‘promo codes’! They were so very helpful and understanding.
Paw pats, and warm purrs for all, Savannah
