Welcome to our Friends on Friday post for this week! Today we have a couple different blogs that help homeless kitties!
First, we have one lots of people know - The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee! They are pretty well known, but I had to post today because they are doing fund raising again this year for the dog-a-thon for The Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County. Now, we know it says Dog-a-thon but all the money raised by the IBKC goes to the kitties - last year they started with a goal of 2 thousand (or as they like to call it, 2 squillion) and ended up getting more than 20 squillion! This year they are trying for 40 squillion - they are pretty close but could use a little help. The money last year went to building a brand new quarantine room at the shelter!! My dad's side of the family is from Tacoma (my dad grew up there) so it is extra special to me to help them out!
Next we have a blog we just started following, that has only been around since March, called daily dose of dogs (aka cats with your coffee). This is a blog about cats and dogs who have been rescued - by someone doing this pretty much completely on their own. She takes in dogs and cats who need help - something that is just so amazing. Some of the stories will make you cry but they are all so good at showing how people can really be good.
We also have to mention a third blog we follow - Covered in Cat Hair. Robyn just (like this past week or so) decided to leave the shelter she was working with and strike out on her own doing rescues of cats and kittens in dire need. She, and the others above, are all great inspirations to me - I hope to one day follow in their footsteps!
Please, if you haven't been by, go to visit these three - they are all blogs with a great cause (and we know there are lots more out there who could join this group. I will probably list a few more next Friday!)
So this will be a quiet weekend here - I am reposting my July 25th post from last year - it would have been my mom's 69th birthday - the few days around that are always a bit tough. But we will be back on Monday - have a great weekend!!
