Good Morning Good News !!!! February 6, 2011

I’m Vincent D. Cat and here to make you happy!  You are HEROES!  You work hard every day and you deserve to smile every day!  Those of you working to save us animals hear so very many very sad things.  And there’s lots of very glad things too and that’s what we talk about here!  All pawsitive all the time!  I want my friends to be happy and smile and know there’s a lot of good - including YOU - in this world!!  Be kind and pass it on!  Please send me your Good New and Fun Stuff to share, personal or global. Let’s keep it fun and interactive!!  After all, if we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane!

That’s my parents, Mr. and Mrs. Vincentina.  Nobody cared enough about them to take them to the Speuter Clinic.  Nobody even told them about the wonderful Speuter Clinic.  They kept having litters and litters of kittens.  they don’t even know where most of their kids went to.  It’s really sad.  I have hundreds and hundreds, maybe even thousands of brothers and sisters.  And I’ll never know any of them.  I bet lots of them ended up in the pound and very bad things happened to them. 

The hoomans who took me didn’t care about Speuter Clinics either.  They let me roam town looking for gals.  Till one day that big bad car came along and intercepted my path.  Whacko-bang-mush.  I was lucky to get out of there with three legs!  And then they were just gonna kill the rest of me off and get a new kitty.  After all, they figured kitties were all over the place, why spend money to fix one up.

If only they’d spent the money to fix me first!!!  But lucky for me Rikki’s came along and now I’ve got a great home, lots of brothers and sisters who I love and I have a great happy life!!!

Hey - take your friends to the Speuter Clinic !!!!  It’s the better way to a better life!!!  Trust me.  I’m Speutered and I’m Proud !!!!!   You can be too!!!!

I’m trying to get ready for game time.  Gots lots of friends here and I promised to feed them all !!!!

My Favorite Quote, Today
What does fear keep you from?
Kind of hard to imagine isn’t it?  But it’s true.  My hooman friends tell me so.  They are so scared of failing that they don’t even try.  Come on!!!  Why be miserable and stay in the fail mode when if you try and try and try you will SUCCEED !!!!!   You have to, you try, you put in the effort and sometimes you try again and again.  As long as you’re trying - you’re headed for success.  Once you choose to give up trying - then and only then - you’ve failed!!!! 

Be a winner - take that one positive step forward today.  Reach out and do one little thing you’ve been kinda scared of.  Doesn’t have to be learning to fly today.  Just one little baby step.  Overcome that one little fear today.  And tomorrow you’ll be ready to face more.  Soon you’ll be able to do ANYTHING you want !!!!  Yeah Heroes !!!!

You know that Jan and Larry offered the wonderful gift of up to $2,222.22 in Double your Love Donations for Valentines!!!!  

So far you’ve donated $260 of love for the animals and towards the matching grant !!!!!  

AND it’s even better now!!!!  
Candy and Paul have added $55 to that Double Your Donation Challenge, so now we can double up to $2,277.22.

Everybody has a reason behind the number they donate.  Why $55?  Candy explains, “Valentines Day is our 24th Anniversary, so if you double that, cuz there’s two of us and then add the number of animals we’ve shared out life together with ... you get 55!!!”

What’s YOUR magic number?  Please donate a buck or two.  Remember, we feed the animals for only 25 cents a meal.  Full care for any animal costs an average of $1 per day.  This is only possible thru our generous volunteers.  Please help us feed somebody today!!

Hey Daddy Fred, I think you and mom should use that formula and come up with your magic number to donate!!!!

On this Day
February 6 is Pay A Compliment Day - what a nice thing to do.  Come on, tell somebody something nice today!
