Ho ho ho everybuddy!  It’s me…Santa Wally here with Kris Kringle Ernie.  A few weeks ago, some of us blogging kitties and our humans got together and decided that we would do something special this holiday season to help the homeless kitties in our communities.  We would donate toys, treats and food to our local shelters and rescues, and encourage others to do the same.  And so the Santa Kitty Toy Hop was born.


Us Island Cats are pretty lucky…we have a great forever home, we have lots of good foods to eat and lots of toys to play with.  We love to help those kitties who aren’t as fortunate as us.  Hey, Kris Kringle Ernie…why don’t you tell everybuddy what we did for the Santa Kitty Toy Hop?

Sure, Santa Wally.  Y’know, we have a great shelter here on the island that we donate to regularly and it gets plenty of other support from the community.  So for the Santa Kitty Toy Hop, we decided to help a private rescue group that doesn’t get as much support.  That rescue is Winnie’s Wish which is run by Miss Chrystal.  You may know Miss Chrystal from her blog, Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with Your Coffee).  She, along with her family, rescues and fosters abandoned animals and works hard to find them forever homes.

Rather than send toys, we sent Miss Chrystal some much needed food…two huge bags of kibble and two cases of stinky goodness.  The food was delivered last week by the man in brown shorts, and Miss Chrystal sent us this picture of it after it arrived.


Now the kitties of Winnie’s Wish will have full bellies for Christmas.

We hope all of you will consider donating to Winnie’s Wish or your local shelter or rescue, if you can.  It doesn’t have to be much…a bag of food or litter, some cat toys or even a few green papers. They will appreciate it!  Let’s make sure all the shelter kitties have a Happy Holiday!

    By the way, Thank you for stopping by….. Mom wrote an answer at the bloggie, but since she didn't know you were going to be reading it, she told me to paste it here too – here we go:
    "Hi Guys!
    Thank you for visiting! Yes, please do visit her page – I hope you listened to the interview…. Dr. Pierson is really great, and her website is really the place to go for feline nutrition and health…… PS. If your babies are getting just a bit of kibbles…….. Get rid of it – they are no bueno! ;-)"
    Take care – you are two very cute and generous santas!

  53. That’s sooo coolio! We decided to do the same thing – and our mom went over there yesterday to get photos so we can post. Someday. HA!
