Blogathon for Charity

It must be the week/month/etc for good deeds. This past weekend, limecello raised over $1000 to give to RED by starting out a post pledging just $10. Inspired by her generosity (limecello is broke, no job and law school loans), others began to donate their money in exchange for comments as well. It was exciting to see how one person made such a big difference.

ONE-TOUCH-OF-SCANDALWe have another cash for comment charity idea to present to you. In celebration of Liz Carlyle’s latest release, One Touch of Scandal, Avon is pledging up to $3000 to give to Liz’s chosen charity which is Cat Angels (http://www.catangelsnc.org/). She says, "It’s a small, sweet organization with fuzzy pictures and no large benefactors at all." For every comment that is made here or at other blog spots like Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, Avon will match that comment with a dollar donation.

I am, I admit, not a huge animal lover but as a user of Icanhazcheeseburger pictures every week, I should be doing something to support animal rescue efforts like those of Cat Angels. It doesn’t cost you guys anything, but a few seconds to tap out a comment in support. Thanks!

    I’m the original “crazy cat lady” so I’d love any comment of mine to help support a cat charity.

    Hope the campaign does really well and thanks for promoting it.

    Aw, these blog posts make me want to go home and snuggle my three kitties. Of course they’re cats so I’d have varying degrees of success.

    Since I haven’t strangled the 3 rescue cats I have I suppose that means I love them. ;)

    As a cat person myself and since my own cat is a rescue cat, I can’t pass up this opportunity to support a rescue organization.

    All my cats are from shelters. I hit SB already and now I’m hitting here b/c this is such a fantastic idea. Go Avon!

    I haven’t seen my mother-in-law all summer because she’s devoted her house to rescue kitties. I hope the real shelters get enough money to take them from her so she can visit us again :-). Thanks, Avon & Liz C!

    To all of our fellow furry-critter-lovers – and a special thanks to Jane for participating in this charity blogathon – THANK YOU for your warm and wonderful comments here! I’ve rescued more cats than my family has known what to do with in the past 20 years; but welcoming these little souls into our homes makes our lives so much richer. Rescue cats (and dogs, and ferrets, et al!) rule. :)

    I think it’s pretty obvious from the pen name that I’m more than happy to help this cause! Plus, one of their Featured Felines on the site (Olivia) reminds me so much of my late kitty George that I had to comment.

    You really don’t want to know what I think of that cover. Avon, for shame.

    I wish I knew why my smaller-than-normal cat tends to be so heavy when he sleeps. Well, heavy enough to make my lap go numb. There must be a scientific explanation for this. And why a typical cat has to sit on a tiny sheet paper in the middle of a vast floor?
    How about the one where a cat repeatedly cries ‘Let me out!’ at a door and after you let the cat out, it cries ‘Let me in!” a few seconds later. Why? Why? WHY?!

    Thanks, Avon!

    The fella is seriously allergic to kitties, but I grew up with a rescue kitty. (A huge Siamese tom named “Slim” who would let us dress him in doll clothes, but beat up all the other cats (& dogs) in the neighborhood, and died at very-old in a fight with a dog.) So here’s to the kitties!

    I’ve had three cats and one of them I found in my back yard under our shed and I was hooked right then and there. I loved her and lost her when she got very old but I will never forget her.

    Thanks, Avon. My first cat was a rescue, but he wore a very smart tuxedo (black and white markings). He was the most relaxed cat I’ve ever encountered. Thanks, Jane, for hosting this :)

    Yeah, another person who is not that excited by animals :) Still, taking care of animals that are already here is admirable, and thank anyone who feels a passion in that area and runs with it.

    Thanks, Avon! And thanks, Jane, for hosting.

    BTW, I really like that Carlyle cover–it’s just a bit different than usual. I like the tenderness. So double kudos to Avon.

    We’ve always had dogs (I’m allergic to cats), but they’ve always been reascues.

    Best doggies ever.

    I don’t have any rescue cats, but I do have a rescue dog, Molly. I am so glad that there was someone there in her time of need and that they were able to take care of her until she came to me.
    Thanks, Avon and Liz Carlyle for doing this

    If you must have a pet, it should probably be rescued, rather especially over-bred and over-priced.

    Sep 28, 2010 @ 00:06:52

    Don’t know that this will work, since I already commented on one of Liz’s blogs, but the support and good thoughts are there. My rescue, a big loving “moo cat” who was abandoned after his first human died, is sprawled contentedly on a chair nearby. It still gives me chills to think we might not have found each other.

    Currently have 2 rescue kitties – one who was thrown out of a car window on a highway as it was cruising at 50 miles per hour and one who was so infested with fleas at 1 week old that she was in an incubator for days. Love kitty rescues.

They are so much fun & have brought smiles into our hearts again after losing our old 19 year old kitty 2 months ago! Cat Angels is a great shelter & I just love everyone I met there & of course all the kitties! I wish I could have adopted more than 2!!!

    I love all animals but cats are so loving esp. when I am in a lot of pain…they sense it and come on the bed purr and give me that I’m here for you look. I’ve been sick for a long time and they’ve helped me survive just by showing they care.
