Good heavens....

We can't trust that woman to do anything right.  We have been reading about Blogoversarys and 100 posts and gotcha days and birthdays and realized: MOM MISSES EVERYTHING!!! 

So, we are going to mess with her.  In celebration of the New Year, we are going to host a commentathon.  We know we don't get too many visitors here, so we are hoping our loyal followers will pass the word on and maybe we can meet some new kitties, doggies and peoples.

For our commentathon, we are gonna make mom donate $.25 per comment to Citizens for Humane Action which is where mom is currently volunteering.  So hop to it people!!!

If you are curious, this is Ivy & Spud in March 2009 - when they were only about 7 months old.

Edit as of 12/30/10: Mom said that it is for this post only and that she will count all posts through 11:59pm 12/31/10.  (and as of right now we have 46 posts and mom almost fell out of her chair).  MOL!!

70 comments:

  1. Oh is it for comments on this post? We think this is a great idea - did you let the cat blogosphere know - that will get a lot of people over! And we will let our friends know too!

  4. I was a foster kitty until I was adopted by my furrever home. My mom and dad donate monthly to the local pet shelter, where Calypso came from, and to Project Purr in Santa Cruz. -- Zazou

    ReplyDelete
  35. I was told that you were holding a comment-athon to fundraise for kitties. So I thought since I can't adopt anymore cats, I could at least take 5 minutes to help. Thank you for caring for those babies!

    ReplyDelete

  68. I couldn't resist grabbing another .25 out of your mom's pocket.
    She is an Angel straight from Heaven to be doing the work she does.
    Come over and see my new babies, adopted from our local shelter. They are 3 months old now and so precious.
    We needed to hurry and fill the enormous gap left by the loss of our dearest boy Wendell, who crossed the bridge in October at 14 years. We fully expected 20 years out of him but some cancer grew in him and we had to let him go. Hubby and I are still not over it but we've moved on and our little 'monkey's' keep us laughing and moving lots of things to higher, inaccessible places ;)
    Happy New Year to all of you there. You are very lucky cats.
