You know how much I love dogs, but…
I love cats, too.
A friend sent me this adorable ‘kitty heart’ picture the other day, and..
These little darlings seemed like a good lead-in to today’s post.
Not just because they’re so cute and because I love cats so much. But also because I want to spread the word about something that is near and dear to my heart…
A cat in need.
Miss Mousie is in dire need of TECA (Total Ear Canal Ablation) surgery that will cost an estimated $5000. To help raise funds, Melissa has set up a special Help Miss Mousie blog.
It would be so wonderful if enough donations roll in to help Miss Mousie.
Melissa is hoping that many cat-loving writers will contribute stories about their own kitties for posting on Miss Mousie’s blog. The idea is that these author-and-their-cat stories will drive traffic to the blog.
If you are a cat-loving writer and would like to share a tale about your special kitty, please contact Melissa.
You can find all information here.
This is the sweet girl you’d be helping..
Even if you aren’t a cat-loving author, you can help by spreading word on your favorite social media venues. And when you do, please ask people to tell their friends, too.
If you know any animal-loving writers, please tell them about Miss Mousie and how they can help her.
All participating authors will get some nice promo out of sharing a cat story. The writers’ names appear in the blog’s sidebar. Lots of great writers have already sent in stories. Kay Hooper, Anne Stuart, and Rebecca York, just to name three.
If you’d like to donate, you can do so here.
As noted on Miss Mousie’s blog, every wee bit helps..
“$5000 is a lot of money, especially for a senior cat, but when you break it down that’s only $2 from 2500 cat lovers or $5 from 1000 cat lovers. When you look at like that, raising that much money doesn’t seem so impossible.”
To follow Miss Mousie’s blog and read new writer-and-cat stories as they appear, you can find the blog here.
You can meet Miss Mousie here.
I’ll leave you now and you have my best wishes for a wonderful weekend.
I know Tarts are great animal lovers, so I’m hoping you’ll rally to help Miss Mousie.
Remember, even if you can’t donate or aren’t an author-with-a-cat, you can still help spread word. So lets rally, Tarts, and do what we can for Miss Mousie.
Tell your friends, share the link(s) on FB and Twitter, and anywhere else you visit on the ‘Net. Mention Melissa and Miss Mousie on your own blogs. Let’s make noise!
That would be grrrrreat!!!
**Please note that I am leaving this post up through the weekend. The more people who see it, the better. Miss Mousie needs us!**
