You might remember when Halo was adopted. For me, it was an especially wonderful adoption because Halo was a Winnie’s Wisher in the “Potential Lif-ers Club.” The family who adopted Halo was already a special family in my world. They adopted from me before I had a blog. (In fact, they are in my book.) Halo was not going to be a smooth sail, but they took her into their home and allowed her to adjust at her own pace.
Well, now Julie (the wife and mother in that family) is blogging about my cathouse. She has a temporary blog called Empty the Cathouse, and she is doing things like highlighting the cats needing homes, talking about the animals she has adopted, and posting about other assorted related topics. When I asked her why she wanted to do this, she said:
Every Lent my observance is usually unique. Sometimes giving up something, which varied from chocolate to the internet. A few years I added things, one year I added the morning and evening prayers of the Divine Office. This year, I chose to add something to my life daily, blogging in support of Winnie's Wish. My personal campaign to bring awareness of Winnie's Wish.
My efforts have included the blog Empty The Cat House, and trying to promote the hashtag, #EmptyTheCatHouse, a slogan to encourage adoption of rescued animals. In particular, to see that Winnie's Wish is empty for the new kittens that will be born this year.
I hope that in the future on Empty The Cat House fund raisers to increase rescues and help expand Winnie's Wish. It isn't much, but every effort made on behalf of Winnie's Wish put together can make a difference.
Wow. Really nice! If you get a chance, Julie would like to invite you to her blog. She writes other things, too, which are listed in her sidebar. (Visit here.)
I like for posts to have pictures. So let me leave you with a picture of Halo - now a member of a real family. Julie wrote about her in a couple of her posts (like this one - click here). And if you scroll down through the posts in Julie’s blog, you’ll see pictures of some of the Winnie's Wishers.
Thank you, Julie!
