Spreading the Wealth

We cats here believe in a little redisrtibution of wealth, Mom's wealth, that is.       Recently we learned that our friend Katie had won Zee and Zoey's Campaign for a Cause and been named Cat Ruler of the World.  


Kaite and Glorgirly, and campaign manager Cathy Keisha and intern Waffles really ran a fabulous campaign.      It was not a surprise that Katie won and the major beneficiary is Blind Cat Sanctuary.     We are very pleased about all the food and other benefits that will go the way of the kitties there.  But we were also sad that all the shelters nominated by all the candidates were not able to win as well, though they did get lesser second prizes.    So yesterday we sneaked Mom's plastic card out of her purse and went online and made donations to the causes of three of our friends who were also candidates for Cat Ruler of the World:

Sparkle - Tabby's Place
Chey - Purrfect Pals
Brian - Kitten Action Team

We are sure the shelters that Austin and Odin were campaigning for are very worthy as well.   We liked the idea of donating to some local shelters rather than a big national organization this year.  

In case anybody else would like to do something similar, the links for all the shelters can be found on Zee and Zoey's blog in this post.     Or just to learn more about all the shelters and the good work they do.

  1. That was a wonderful thing you all did, especially your mom who has to pay the credit card bill when it comes in. :-)

    We're sure the shelters will be so grateful! Well done, guys.

  7. What a wonderful thing for you to do. I'm going to grab M's card too. I wished the prize could have been divided up a little bit. It's nice for the winning charity, but the other ones were very worthy too.

  10. That is so so wonderful that you did that. Our Mom really wanted to do the same thing and wanted the goodies to be split up evenly for all the shelters. We don't understand why it had to be a competition.But anyway, from all of us thank you so much for giving those other shelters a nice gift.
