I have some exciting new to share!
I have started a new campaign through Teespring to help raise some funds to get cats out of high kill shelters! Part of the proceeds from this campaign will also be donated towards @landosolofund whom I have gotten to know through Instagram. They work tirelessly to save cats from high kill shelters and spends many many hours transporting cats to various fosters. The money raised would help them towards the purchase of a cargo van, which will be crucial in transporting more cats to where they need to go. The cargo van can hold up to 9 carriers whereas their current car only holds a maximum of 3.
So this new campaign is all about t-shirts! There are many styles and colours available

Here are some of the items you can purchase!
What do you guys think? I really love the tank top and I think it would be a great addition to your wardrobe especially for summer! Add the tote bag to your repetoire and you are beach ready!
It’s been about a month since I opened the Etsy store and I am so glad to see it doing well.
The cat community of Instagram have really embraced all the products I have on there! The bandannas have been a big hit and the book and art work have been doing well too!! So amidst all this, I decided to continue my tradition of doing a holiday fundraiser!
If you remember, last year I did gift packs for several local rescues. This year my fundraising focused on two special kitties… One named Ollie and the other named Buddy.
I came to know about these two kitties through Instagram. Let me share about them!
Ollie is a little kitty who needed help to pay for a liver operation to fix a congenital defect. He has a GoFundme page set up so I decided to do a small fundraiser to contribute to that. I ended up raising about $25 towards this.
Buddy is a sweetheart who got hit by a car and ended up with a broken jaw and other severe injuries. His mama wanted to desperately save his life! This required lots of surgery and continuous vet visits! Of course, this means they need as much help with funding as possible so last weekend I held a 2 day fundraiser for Buddy. All sales made through the Etsy store was going to be donated to Buddy and I must say it was a great success! I ended up making about $120!
It made me and Kitty so happy to be able to do something good to help these two lovable cats and hopefully they both make a full recovery!
I can’t believe how quickly time is going by… It is almost October!
As much as I love summer, Fall is one of my favourite times of the year.. There is something about the cool, crisp air, the ever changing colours of the leaves that are so beautiful and of course, the boots and sweaters kind of weather! I love sitting outside, wrapped in a blanket, sipping on some hot tea…… !
This fall will be even more exciting for me as I have officially launched my new book ‘Home is where my cat is’. I have had great response to the book and I look forward to selling lots of copies in order to raise funds for Berkeley’s Place and Safe Team Rescue!
If you were wondering how to get your hands on a copy, you can order online at http://www.blurb.com/b/7353558-home-is-where-my-cat-is or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The wait is finally over!!
My book ‘ Home is where my cat is’ is officially available for purchase online.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who shared wonderful stories about their kitties. The book has turned out really well and I am so pleased with it….
Proceeds from this book will be donated towards Berkeley’s Place and Safe Team Rescue.
If you are interested in purchasing the book, please visit http://www.blurb.com/books/7353558-home-is-where-my-cat-is
Hello everybody! I just wanted to give you all a quick update as to how things are coming along with my new book project!!! I have had some great responses and have about 11 stories put together so far!
I still have room for another 10 or so stories so please make sure to get in touch if you would like your kitties featured on the book.
A little request…. when you send me emails with the stories, please make sure to include the following :
- 3 clear photos of each kitty (high resolution if possible)
- A little history on the kitty and how you found them.
- A bit on kitty’s personality, their favourite things like food, toys etc and a day in the life of the kitty…. what is an average day like for them….
I am hoping to do a pre-print of the book this weekend to see how the picture quality turns out so if you want to get those stories to me sooner, that would be great!
I have been thinking of doing something fun for the upcoming holiday season and I came up with an idea of doing a little book of Kitty & friends…..!
It would be a book full of photos and stories of kitties who have been adopted from rescues and shelters. Tt would be an opportunity to give thanks and a shout out to the rescues as well!
Once the book is ready, I am hoping to sell it and have all the proceeds from it go to various local rescues. I haven’t picked which rescues to donate towards yet. I know a few organizations that build shelters for feral colonies so that those kitties are warm and safe during winter. This would be a great project to contribute to….
If you have any suggestions and ideas about this project, please let me know:) I would love to get some feedback!!
Life has kept me busy since the start of this year but I see it slowing down pretty soon (not to my liking I must admit!) Why you ask? Well, I will be job hunting AGAIN in a few weeks! Yes, it sucks to be unemployed however I am sure something great will be coming my way soon (fingers crossed!)
Sometimes I think it would be great to find something that I can do from home that would pay me a truckload of money! But I guess no one will pay me to be a full time pet parent LOL!
A.N.Y.W.A.Y…. As I spend my time sending out resumes, I was thinking of coming up with some ideas to do another mini fundraiser….
I would like to get some thoughts and ideas from my readers (I hope you are out there!!!)
What would you like to see as a fundraiser? 50-50 draw? Selling some cool pet items? An auction? Let me know what you think!
My final fundraiser for 2015 has come to a successful end!
