What A Thankful Thursday
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
This is gonna be like a really long post…so you might want to grab some noms and a fave beverage and pull up a soft blankie and sit a while…
SERIOUSLY…I know “great” blogs are short…but you are really gonna wanna read this WHOLE BOOK…’cuz you are ALL the main characters…JUST SAYIN’…
That’s why I am sittin’ here in this chair…
I just have a ton of things to be thankful for…and so much of those things are all about the treasure of having furriends who pitch in to help even without being asked…and when asked…they do it with their whole heart.
First, I think most of you remember I have a foster brofur, Leo, who has been in
my our care for a month now. He has hepatic lipidosis or commonly called fatty liver syndrome. You can read about it here in one of my posts…or visit this LINK HERE to learn from Sparkle…
It was in that post, May 9, that I asked if anyone had some spare green papers, silver coins, lying around unused, that Mom and Dad could use a bit of help as Leo’s medical costs, which they fully committed to paying cuz his shelter, Contra Costa Humane Society is not very big and their vet care fund is always so stretched rescuin’ lots of adult cats and woofies. Mom and Dad had paid $2,285 USD for Leo’s two night stay in animal hospital, blood work, ultrasound and feeding tube operation.
Anywho, I asked that one time…and guess what happened?
Several of my furriends immediately jumped to action and Mom found $245 USD in her paypal account in a few days!! Unbelievable…and over half of those who responded at that time were from out of USA…our global paw blog community so totally ROCKS!!!
Next I got the surprise of my life…my blue eyed mancat furriend and his blonde bombshell side kick…yes, I mean Alfie and Mollie!…they asked, well, actually I guess Mum Stella asked “can I help?” We said sure and that was it for then.
An email from Mum Stella truly shocked me and Mom Linda to the core…they were gonna do not only a raffle but an AUCTION to help raise funds for Leo!!!
Mollie and Alfie and Mum Stella outdid themselves, on May 20th they had not only the AUCTION but the RAFFLE up and running…click HERE to read the post about the Auction.
…Alfie…(Mr Blue Eyes himself…purrrs…)
Of course, they needed more staff, so their good pal Miss Misaki jumped in with all four paws to assist with sorting the Raffle tickets, numbers etc…Misaki even took time out from eating her ice cream cone to make sure efurryone remembered to get their raffle tickets and to make bids at the auction…click HERE to read her post.
Now you ask “how could just those two bloggers get the word out and about and
beg solicit furriends to donate items to the auction????….well of course there were even MORE of my furriends who helped…my mentor Sammy was cat on the spot getting the word out on every one of his posts once Mollie and Alfie got the ball ,nip mouse event rolling…click HERE to read one of Sammy’s post about the auction/raffle.
And…of course my furry good furriends, My Three Moggies, were right in there helping
strong arm encourage furriends to donate auction items and then to bully motivate them to make bids and buy raffles tickets…AND GUESS WHAT ELSE THEY DID?????….
My Three Moggies donated a PAWSOME Raffle First Prize…£50/$75 voucher for pet toys and products on Amazon…click HERE to read their announcement.
Of course the Second Place Raffle Prize was also super duper special…it was donated from Mollie and Alfie’s shop…it was one of Mum Stella’s very special hand drawn cartooned mouse pads…check out the two she did for ME a while ago…
And one more GREAT BIG THANK YOU to the WINNERS of the First Grand Prize from the Raffle…da’ Tabbies-O-Trout Towne…they gave LEO their Amazon voucher for $75 USD to spend on what ever he needs or to give to his shelter roomies at Kitty Corner.

DONATIONS MADE TO CONTRA COSTA HUMANE SOCIETY DIRECTLY DUE TO YOUR RESPONSE TO MY ASK and/or as part of the AUCTION/RAFFLE EVENT

I am so respectful of all that so many have done for Leo, whom none of you have met. Trust me…he is worth it…and Dr. Ellis, his very special personal Vet (mine too…heh…heh) is totally his head cheerleader!! Dr Ellis owns and loves her Civic Feline Clinic vet practice. Without her and her PAWSOME staff, Leo would not be with us right now…IMHFO (in my humble feline opinion)…I mean seriously, what Vet ever gives the peeps a personal mobile number over a long weekend in case they need help for Leo????!!!
Purrlease, visit their Face Book page and give them a great big “LIKE“…Civic Feline Face Book Page
Okey dokey…here are the photos you will so enjoy…
…Leo’s last feeding at Civic Feline Clinic with Mom Linda the very day she returned from her trip to Blog Paws..

…then after Ceiling Cat Daughter left…his new Hotel Suite…
AND NOW…THE BIGGEST NEWS OF ALL…THIS IS WHY YOU KEPT ON READING THIS PAWFUL LONG POST…HEH…HEH…
…yup! That was Leo eating some kibble…not enough yet…but we are all so encouraged!
Last but absolutely NOT LEAST…Leo’s personal vet clinic…the PAWSOME Civic Feline Clinic…
I so hope you hung in for the WHOLE post…if not…come back later and try a few more scrolls of the mousie thingy…just sayin’
