If you’re on Facebook, you may have already seen this. It’s such a lovely thing to have happen that I wanted to share it with you wonderful Friends who support Winnie’ Wish. A week ago today, a fantastic lady visited the Winnie’s Wish cathouse. She is a reporter for a newspaper one county over. Michele toured the three rooms, caught a glimpse of a few kitties, took pictures, and asked me for my story. She asked great questions and during our conversation I discovered that she is a “cat person” herself. Marvelous!
As we talked, I let Michele know that my goal for getting an article like this published in the newspaper is ADOPTIONS. I explained that I needed to get more people to my blog. This blog is where I do the stories of the cats and kittens here who are looking for forever homes. This blog is where (in the sidebar) I have pictures of the adoptable Wishers, and my “donate” button, and the link to how to buy the book, and my Wish List. I told Michele that to grow the pool of potential adopters I needed to reach more folks. THAT could happen if more people visited the blog.
This newspaper only comes out once a week – on Wednesdays. I had no idea when Michele might get the story of Winnie’s Wish into the paper. And of course I assumed it would be a small article. But Michele wasted no time. The story was in yesterday’s edition of The Metropolis Planet. And it wasn’t a tiny article stuck somewhere in the back. It was on the front page! My teeth nearly dropped out of my head when I first saw it. I am grateful to The Metropolis Planet for running an article about a small, private cat rescue and shelter. I am especially grateful to Michele for such a lovely article, for being willing to do the story, and for truly caring about what I do here.
You, Friends, know that I am at my maximum number here. I cannot take in another homeless cat or kitten until I get some adoptions. Hope with me that this newspaper article will direct new folks to Winnie’s Wish via this blog. And hope with me that very soon I will be announcing a whole bunch of wonderful, PERFECT Winnie’s Wish adoptions.
Have a great weekend.
