Good Morning Good News !!!! August 24, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!

The best news is how many friends turned out to vote for Rikki's in the
shelter challenge.

The better news is, at one minute to cut off time it was showing Rikki's
in the lead by slightly over 1%. The official winner will be announced
Wednesday 8/25.

The bestest news is I haven't turned totally blue yet from holding my

You'll be the first to know when I know anything!!!

In the mean time - relax and take time to smell the flowers

Rikki's will be at the National Capital Cat Show in Chantilly, Virginia
September 11 and 12. They have a big rescue section. We'll be talking
to the public, handing out literature and have cats for adoption. The
hoomans are forcing me to sit in a kissing booth - for a buck you can
smooch me.

We have several events going on this weekend and our volunteers are
spread thin. PLEASE I NEED HELP here, if you can come for a few hours
either Saturday or Sunday - or if you're fabulous and can do all day
both days -- Please contact Catnip Candy paulcandy214@verizon.net so
she can set the schedule. We need 6 volunteers hoomaning our booth at
all times. Easy duties, no rain, no sun, no poop - just hand out flyers
and take money!

Produce pick up needed September 15th and 29th, south Stafford
Our picker-up-er will be on vacation. Don't let the pigs go hungry.
Can you load your vehicle and bring the goodies to Rikki's Pick up will
have to be before noon. If you can please contact Deloris for details.
Dee0849@cox.net Petunia and friends thank you!

Do you believe in dreams? Rene does and this is what she sent me Monday
morning: I had a vivid dream last night that woke me at 3:30 am. Vincent
was waiving two small flags in his front paws, while fireworks went off
behind him and confetti poured from the sky. This image to me says we won!

From my sisfur who got adopted on Saturday: Hi Vincent! This is your
friend Polly!! I have discovered the joy of sleeping on my new Mom's
bed and cuddling up with her for a nap. I have even met your friend Gato
Noir..I let him sniff me but then I hiss him away to show him who's
boss. I might be nice to him someday, though. I am sooo happy I have
some Cat Haiku to send you for your good morning reports:


You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will show you.


You're always typing.
Well, let's see you ignore my
Sitting on your hands.


Cats meow out of angst
"Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
We could break so much!"

Keep praying for that positive announcement tomorrow morning !!


Unit Wednesday ....

PS If you don't want your Daily Good New, just let me know! A couple of
you have said you only want Hairballs with out the Good News!! That's
ok! Just tell me. I'm here to make you happy, just tell me how! If
