All the snow is gone

Well, will you look at that. All the snow is gone. Just a week ago there was a ton of the white stuff out there.

I'm safe and dry up here

But then the temperatures got warmer and it rained…lots and lots of rain…and all the snow melted. Which means there’s been lots of flooding in our area. Fortunately no flooding for us! Not that I worry about it since I spend most my time up here in my room. I’m sure there’s more snow in our future. I bet Ol’ Man Winter isn’t done with us yet.

Thanks to all of you who came by last week to celebrate my Gotcha Day. I wanna update you on the results of our commentathon that we had to benefit the PAWS of Michigan SNAP program. There was a total of 100 comments! Can you believe that?!? So at 50 cents a comment, that’s a total of $50 that the lady with the yellow hair will donate to PAWS.

Chip and Slim, the garden center catsBut wait…there’s more. You remember Chip and Slim, the garden center cats, right? Well, when they found out about the commentathon, they wanted to get in on it, too. After all, they actually benefited from the SNAP program when they were neutered. So they asked the guy if there was something they could do to give back. And y’know what he said? He said the garden center would match the commentathon donation. So that means another $50 for the SNAP program! Yay! Thanks to the guy and D & L Garden Center for this terrific donation. Now many more cats and dogs will be able to be spayed and/or neutered. And we all know how important that is to help control the population of unwanted animals.

  1. Zoey, you beautiful girl, I am so happy that you got so many good wishes on your Gotcha day and that the Garden Center matched the donation.

  2. Yay! Zoey, it’s always a treat to see Chip and Slim, and for such a good cause. Eastside Cats is happy that the snow is gone too; makes us worry a tiny bit less about The O Cats.

  5. What a wonderful result!

  6. Wow $100 for the SNAP program. That is just wonderful. No snow looks good. We have been having spring, but with literally no sun. We think we’ve seen it for an hour or two in the last couple of weeks. Today isn’t warm; though, we broke two temp records this week. Anyhoo, enjoy the day and weekend, Zoey.
