Now here is what I wrote in September 2010.
9/20/10. I am so excited to write this post. It is a very special post. Here’s why. . .
On August 15 (2010), we found a kitten (or rather she found us). She was in absolutely terrible shape, but we hoped to bring her back to health and give her the kind of life she deserved. She didn’t get that chance. She moved on to the Bridge and left us (ALL) heartbroken. Her name was Winnie. If you don’t know her story, you can read it here. [8/16 Well, It Happened. . ., 8/17 Heartbreak, 8/18 Tribute to an Angel ]
Winnie seemed to touch so many hearts. An offer was made to me by the Cat Blogosphere to do something special in Winnie’s name. I have a small cathouse which is home to several rescued cats and kittens. The cathouse can only accommodate a handful of kitties at a time. This summer, we have taken in more kitties than we have placed. There are too many cats in the cathouse which is not good for any of them. So we’ve decided on an adoption campaign. We named this event Winnie’s Wish because Winnie wished for a forever home. And the cats in our cathouse (who would have been Winnie’s housemates) also wish for forever homes. The mission here is to get as many of these rescued sweethearts into loving homes as possible. Please help us get these babies placed. We can’t take in any more needy kitties until homes are found for some of these. And remember - if you adopt a cat from us, it opens a spot for another homeless soul who will be able to live in comfort until his or her own home comes along. Help us keep the revolving door open for the many more out there who need us.
*Please note: We are only interested in indoor homes. We want these babies to become full-fledged family members.

WE WILL WORK TO HELP YOU WITH TRANSPORTATION TO JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE. SO DON'T LET DISTANCE KEEP YOU FROM ADOPTING ONE OF THESE GREAT CATS.
Some of my readers are willing to help work out transportation for these kitties from where I am in the southern Illinois to just about anywhere a wonderful forever home might exist. We are desperately hoping that these kitties get adopted into loving homes. Please pass the word. But send us only amazing, wonderful people. If you can help by making note on your own blog, sharing us on Facebook, Tweeting about us, or by being part of a transport if that situation should arise, we will be eternally grateful. Leave a comment or email me with any information you wish to share.

Keep your fingers (and everything else) crossed. Purrs and purrayers are welcome. In honor of Winnie, let the forever homes come forward. THANK YOU.
