Good Morning Good News !!!! September 1, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!

Welcome to September !!!!

Another month and I love YOU even MORE !!!!

Mommey's been doing a real lousy job raising the money to buy that ton
of cat food at the special price. Leave it to HER, she's just a hooman
after all. My pal and step-brofur has made an offer to help!! Check
this out !!!

My name is Sam, and I am an alumni of Rikki's Refuge. I found my
"forever home" after only 4 months at Rikki's, but I know a lot of my
buddies are still down there and need our help.

I make a pretty good allowance every week doing my chores. I am the
family's alarm clock; I start meowing 5 minutes before the alarm goes
off – no matter what time they set it! Plus, I'm even fluent in the
snooze alarm. My other job is keeping my Poppa safe in the bathtub. I
can't see thru that shower curtain, so I sit on the toilet and talk to
him while he's in there. He talks back to me, so I know that he didn't
go down that little hole in the bottom of the tub. You know, you can
never be too careful.

I talked to my momma and poppa, and agreed to take on some extra chores
to earn extra money. I'm gonna make sure that the squirrels and blue
jays only take one peanut each trip to the backyard. Whenever I'm out
in the yard with Poppa, I'm gonna take extra care to patrol the
perimeter and make sure no snakes get in our backyard to scare my momma.
Plus, I'm gonna keep a better watch on the catnip plants to keep them
from going to seed. I figure I'm gonna be making good money for a 7
year old tan tabby.

So, I'm issuing all of you a challenge. I'll put up all my allowance up
to $500 to anyone who donates to the food fund for Vincent. That means,
if you donate $50, I'll match your $50 so that Vinnie will have $100.
All you have to do is donate. The mouse gauntlet has been thrown down.
Dare me to have to spend all $500. It's up to you.

Mommey went-ed away yesterday and was on the radio with her hero Rebecca

While she was gone my neurotic brofur Bobbin was nowhere to be found.
Everybody was worried about him, maybe he slipped out some how? When mom
got home Valerie told her and she went around singing her, "Bob, Bob,
Bobbin, where's my Bob, Bob, Bobbin, my boy!" And as soon as she stepped
in the cat trailer singing, he ran and jumped on mom's shoulder! Mommey
has silly songs for each of us. Do you sing silly songs to your
furkids? Tell me what they are!

I just won a 14 zillion $ grant to study the relative intelligence of
various species. Here's our first study. Can I have your vote please? Is
the creature who can spit the longest or the one hangs around annoying
the other and getting spit on the most intelligent?
MY Kerri Williams makes such lovely portraits of us!!! And look - a
special deal just for you !
Try getting a CAT to do that! As Alison says, "An' a cat would lead !!!"

More like a kitty!
