UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

The Announcement!

EDIT: Hi, it is Commentathon Day - to leave a comment please head over to THIS POST! Thanks!!

So, for those of you in the US, you know that April 15 is tax day. But what a lot of you probably don't know is that April 15 is also the day that our very own Virgil is featured in the Cute Overload desk calendar! So, on April 15, starting at 12:01 a.m. Central Daylight Time, until 11:59 p.m. that same day, we are holding a commentathon! For every comment left during that time we are going to donate twenty five cents to Cat Guardians which is a no-kill shelter located in Lombard, IL. This is the shelter where Floyd, our boy who went to the bridge last October, lived before he came to live with me. Now I know this is a kitty only shelter and we have a lot of doggie friends out there too. Most of the time we try to donate to shelters that work with both, but we wanted to do something for the shelter that saved Floyd. Without them we never would have known him. So stop back on April 15 and be sure to comment! And if you want to let others know, please feel free to grab the graphic below and post a link to us!

Four Dinners said...

Maximus Spittimus has advised me to tell you that if I do not donate to any 'no kill' shelter I hear about on the planet I will discover what his claws are really for.

Under those circumstances I'd better paypal something...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We tried to put your badge in our sidebar but this new blogger template is most uncooperative about improperly resizing and we couldn't.

We notice you have a Chip In for Tiny Tim. Great idea! We read about him recently.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We reverted to our old template and we just posted your graphic on jff.

Daisy said...

What a wonderful thing to do! Hooray for Cat Guardians!

Marg said...

This is such a good idea. We will be back to leave lots of comments. I do have the badge on my sidebar so I hope you get lots of comments. Have a great day.

Yay, today is the Commentation day. We've got your badge on our site, too. "The Boys" and I are thrilled we can help you with this.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Great idea and a lovely thought to do this for Floyd - we will download your badge and put on my side bar.

What a really nice idea! We're sure that the kitties at Cat Guardians will really appreciate the help and it's a nice way to remember Floyd.
