Good Morning Good News !!!! November 22, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!

Mommey says the goodest news of all was the absolutely wonderful and
endless nums at Mariza's Thanksgiving Dinner yesterday. She says more
good news was seeing all the wonderful friends who came. Having
relaxing "down" time at the one event a year she's just a guest and
getting to visit with friends she doesn't get to see much.

Thank you Mariza for feeding mommey and daddy and all my friends. And
thank you all who came and ate vegetarian nums instead of my friends!

So this is the week. A very important week. Each week the shelter with
the mostest votes instantly wins $1,000. If we win this week - and we
will cuz my HEROES are gonna help me - we'll have that check for $1,000
by the first week in December and it's gonna help so much!

All you have to do is VOTE! Every day. And ask all your friends to be
extra careful and not to miss a day from now thru Sunday! Rikkis Refuge VA USA

Each week thru December 20th one entry will be selected to win $500.
All you have to do is enter on line. I did it!!! You can too. You can
enter every day, but only once a day!

Tractor Supply could be called Kitty Supply cus they have as much stuff
for me as they do for tractors. So if you're the lucky winner, it'd be
real nice if you sent me the gift card!!!! But if you need it for your
critters, I understand! I want all my friends to be winners.

When God Made Cats
by Fancy Scott

When God made the world, He chose to put animals in it, and decided to
give each whatever it wanted. All the animals formed a long line before
His throne, and the cat quietly went to the end of the line. To the
elephant and the bear He gave strength, to the rabbit and the deer,
swiftness; to the owl, the ability to see at night, to the birds and the
butterflies, great beauty; to the fox, cunning; to the monkey,
intelligence; to the dog, loyalty; to the lion, courage; to the otter,
playfulness. And all these were things the animals begged of God. At
last he came to the end of the line, and there sat the little cat,
waiting patiently. "What will YOU have?" God asked the cat.

The cat shrugged modestly. "Oh, whatever scraps you have left over. I
don't mind."

But I'm God. I have everything left over."

"Then I'll have a little of everything, please" said the Cat.

And God gave a great shout of laughter at the cleverness of this small
animal, and gave the cat everything she asked for, adding grace and
elegance and, only for her, a gentle purr that would always attract
humans and assure her a warm and comfortable home.

Well, I'm gonna go do what us kitties do best! Have a snack, wash my
face, and sleep in the sun! Seez you all later. You all don't forget
to vote and help me win $1,000 this week now!!!

Thanks, and I love you,
