Hi everybuddy.  It’s me…Zoey.  I want to let you know there’s a memorial service for Sparkle the Designer Cat going on today on her blog.  Her human is having a commentathon in Sparkle’s memory with all the proceeds going to Tabby’s Place:  A Cat Sanctuary, one of Sparkle’s favorite rescue groups.  Click HERE to visit the memorial.


We think this is a great way to pay tribute to Sparkle…and so did some of our other blogging friends.  We’re all joining together and having commentathons of our own in memory of Sparkle, too.

Here’s what us Island Cats are doing.  For every comment left on this blog post, the mom will donate 50 cents to Tabby’s Place in Sparkle’s memory.  Our commentathon will run through the end of the day Saturday (Island time) and we’ll announce the results sometime next week.


Not only are we honoring Sparkle, a kitty who has been very influential to many of us blogging kitties, we’re also helping kitties in need.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Tabby’s Place, it’s a cage-free sanctuary for cats rescued from hopeless situations.  Many of the residents are special needs kitties that require more care. Tabby’s Place offers an adoption center to help find kitties loving homes, a hospital to provide medical care for those kitties that are sick or injured, and a hospice to provide palliative care for those terminally ill kitties.  If you’d like to make your own donation to Tabby’s Place, you can visit them by clicking on the Tabby Place picture above.

So let the commentathon begin!  Let’s make it a BIG success for both Sparkle and Tabby’s Place!
