Welcome 2015!


We purr that the New Year brings all of you lots of
happiness, good health and much prosperity!

And now for the results of our Blogoversary commentathon!  There were 98 comments through the end of last night.  Whoohoo!  So, at 50 cents a comment, that’s a total of $49.  But the mom says she’ll kick in a little more and make it an even $50!

Now which animal shelter, rescue, charity or worthy cause gets the donation?  You all mentioned a lot of great ones.  We wish we could help them all.  Here’s what we did.  We assigned a number to each animal shelter, rescue, charity or worthy cause in the order it was mentioned in the comments. If one was mentioned more than once (which some were), it was entered in the drawing as many times as it was mentioned.  We ran the numbers through the True Random Number Generator (random.org) and the lucky one is…

Joe the Donkey from Marg’s Animals!

No surprise there…so many of you mentioned Marg needing help with Joe’s vet bills after his run-in with the fence when chasing the coyotes away.  The mom will make a $50 donation to Marg to help with Joe’s care.  We purr that Joe heals quickly!

Once again…thanks, everybuddy, for coming by and celebrating our Blogoversary and participating in our commentathon.  We really appreciate all the nice things you said about us and our blog.  We hope we’ve made you smile over the last 7 years.  We’re looking forward to having more fun in 2015. Happy New Year!
