As promised, screenshots of the donation you folks helped me send off to the good people over at @popememorialhumanesociety who have done so much to help us with the kittens! We raised Seven Freaking Thousand Dollars because you are all amazing (and because the screen that I thought told me how much the sale had sold didn’t update fast enough to keep up with all of you!).
But, you know, first a gratuitous picture of a giant kitty! Because she’s so much cuter than pesky words…
And it’s two pictures because for some reason the system wouldn’t let me send the whole donation all at once, so I had to split it in two. My guess is it’s something about the size, but sweet crispy crackers do I not usually type numbers that big into anything with a dollar sign anywhere nearby, so I honestly can’t say for sure. But I’m pretty sure it still does the job, even if it comes in in two batches!
Two of the kitties are now off with their forever families. The little black boy kitty (the one we usually called hissy black, though his hissyness was short lived) has been named Vesper and you might be able to catch a glimpse of him here from time to time @longwintercats. The little gray girl kitty (the one we usually called sweetie gray, and yes she still is a sweet pea) has been named Marceline and she might make the occasional appearance here @erinsday.
The other gray kitty, who we found out belatedly was in fact a boy, has gone to hang out with the good folks at the rescue group for a few days so they can get a good sense of his personality and get him placed (I’ve been assured there is a long waiting list of folks eager for kittens, so he should be heading to a permanent home quite shortly, never fear). I’ll update you if I find out more & if his new family is ok with me sharing.
And the black girl kitty is staying with us! We haven’t quite decided on a name just yet, though I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of her and hearing about her antics from time to time as she settles in and starts bossing all of us around.
