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.
