Help Us Help New Zealand Kitties, Pt. 2

Thank you to @Isagold for the winning bid on “Gray Cat. Found.” We applaud  her for her desire to help the SPCA care for animals affected by the earthquake last month in New Zealand!

*Huge round of booming applause*

Black and White Kitten. Found.

Black and White Kitten. Found.

We did promise to auction the fourth Christchurch Cats drawing as well. This one is “Black and White Kitten. Found.” My human really likes this drawing and the way it turned out a bit different as a Zazzle card.

This kitten was also looking for his human family on Trade Me. (More than 500 listings for lost and found pets on Trade me as of today.) He is so little that he fits in one human hand. We do so hope that this kitten, and all the other displaced pets, finds his human family soon. We also offer purrs of comfort and strength to those humans an pets whose lives are permanently shaken up by the earthquake.

More than anything, we wish the people and animals of New Zealand peace and safety in which to rebuild.

We are now ready to accept bids beginning at $20 on the drawing, in markers on 5×7 bristol paper, “Black and White Kitten. Found.” Please offer bids in increments of $5 by commenting on this post. The auction will be open until 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, March 3.

We will add up the royalties on Zazzle and the proceeds of the auctions and send them right off to the Canterbury (Christchurch) SPCA. I’ll update everyone how much we were able to donate because of your kind support of cat cards and art for Christchurch.

Update on Tiger

Tiger is recuperating. His tail is in the itchy phase of healing, his human said. She also said he is eating a lot. “More than his share,” she actually said, MOL. He’s playing with his family but skittish around strangers.

Who could blame Tiger for shying away from strangers???

Tiger did respond well to Amber, who went to visit him and his mom as soon as she read the newspaper and found out what happened to him. Amber is one of the biggest supporters of animal welfare in our town. She springs dogs from the shelters and fosters them until they find forever homes and works with ARF-Texas. She has a long history of service to animals, including work with animals after Hurricane Katrina.

Amber will help Tiger’s mom get continued care for his injuries, neutering and vaccinations. We can help by donating via PayPal to help pay for his care through ARF – Texas. The site has a spot for comments, so make sure to mention that you want to support Tiger’s care. (If ARF receives more than is necessary for Tiger’s care, the remainder will go into the organization’s general medical fund.)

Only one person has made a donation specifically for Tiger’s care, so far.  I hope more of us will be able to help out.

I also have heard from a friend with connections in the prosecuting attorney’s office that the guys suspected of hurting Tiger will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.

Tiger’s mom says a big THANK YOU to everyone who is praying for Tiger or sending purrs. She wants us all to know that Tiger and his little boy are playing together a lot and having a really good time.
