Well, it's been a long couple of weeks. Giant thanks to those of you who have hung in there with me through thick and thin.
Since I wrote yesterday about how wonderful it is to have Evergreen around – young and boisterous, entertaining and loving – I want to make a suggestion. If there is anyone out there who would love to experience the joy I'm experiencing with Evers, there are three male kitties in the cathouse who could entertain YOU like Evers is entertaining ME. Slate, Toast, and Smokey have turned into lovely little guys. They have completed their series of three kitten vaccinations and have been neutered. I'd love to get them into homes before they grow up and become adults right here at Winnie's Wish.
Tuesday, while I was reading comments about Pinky, I read a FB comment by KR who suggested I get a Winnie's Wish “Wish List” at Amazon. There are a few of you who were already trying to encourage me to do this. But I didn't want it to seem like I was asking for things. One of you said I was being ridiculous and that this would be an easy way for people to help out if they wanted to. Believe me, I knew you were right. Anyway . . . when KR became the fourth person to mention it, I decided I would do it. I'm maxed out at in the cathouse now. With a full house, it truly does take tons of food and litter. However, there was also the problem of me being completely technologically inept. KR assured me that creating the wish list was an easy thing to do. Well . . . (drumroll) . . . Winnie's Wish has an Amazon Wish List! KR checked it out for me (to see if I'd done it correctly) and after a few tweeks, it looks like it is in place. I think all you have to do is go to Amazon and click on Wish List in the upper right hand corner. Then on that page, over on the right, you'll see this - Find someone's Wish List. Type in Winnie's Wish. I hope it's actually that easy. But then again – it's me we're talking about. I'm the one who set it up. So honestly – who knows?
I received a round tube in the mail yesterday. It was from Mindy Slimmer. Mindy periodically sends something to the animals here. This is what was in yesterday's intriguing package!
Just about the time I started battling kitten illnesses, I received a BIG box in the mail from Patti. Patti has also sent goodies to the animals here in the past. This box was absolutely loaded with cat toys & treats and dog toys & treats. When you examine the picture of this box of goodies, look at the picture Patti included. It is on the right hand flap. It's a picture of a pirate ship toy. The materials to build it were in the box. I'll be putting it together this weekend and trying it out in the cathouse. Also – it's important to note that Patti has an amazing ability to pick PERFECT dog toys. She is the one who sent the toy that became my foster dog Gandy's favorite.
And wait till you see what she included in this box. Here's a hint. BENJI.
I blogged about Benji having a very very very favorite type of toy. In fact, the first one he ever experienced came out of a box of toys that Mindy Slimmer had given me. Well, I looked for more of these and can't find them in my area. Here are those favorite toys.
THANK YOU Patti.
Finally, let me mention Andrea and her AMAZING Winnie's Wish FUNdraisers. She has a summer collection of toys that she is selling RIGHT NOW. She sent me a complimentary package. Just in case you didn't notice, that post about Evergreen playing with EVERYTHING (yesterday's post) included pictures of him playing with some of Andrea's summertime toys.
Thank you again for all of your support these last couple of weeks. Have a great weekend!
