Calendars For Cats

20141121_063929 -AR

Just over a week ago, I was sneaking around on the computer shopping for a present for my humans. I had overheard them comment several times to each other in the last few months how they would like to make a calendar of the kitties and I to have for next year, and while I was pawing through photos I got this big idea. What if I ordered a bunch of mini calendars and did a fundraiser for an animal shelter or rescue group? How pawsome would that be, right?

It was a little last minute, but I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a long time. Why not now? So the next thing my humans knew they were receiving a big box of calendars, and they were all the same and all of me. I think Mom was a bit confused at first and thought they were all for her because she got really excited when they arrived. BOL! But don’t worry, I explained the fundraising thing to her and she’s cool with it. Besides, I don’t think there’s enough flat surfaces in the house anyways. *wink wink*

Frenzy seems a little miffed that he’s not in the calendar. Don’t worry Frenzy, you’ll get your turn.

The charity I picked for my very first fundraiser is CatNap Society, where Frenzy was adopted from. They are a small, non-profit group run by volunteers who help stray, abandoned, and feral cats and kittens here in my home town and surrounding area. If it wasn’t for them, my big brother Frenzy wouldn’t be with us today, and even though we’re not always the best of friends I can’t imagine life without him. And for them to take in, foster, and find a home for a kitten like Frenzy who was – to put nicely – a complete super jerk from all the stories I’ve heard (and sometimes still is), well, I think that’s really pawsome. Visit CatNap on Facebook, Twitter, and their webpage to learn more about them and what they do.

All profits will be donated to CatNap Society. Help me raise funds for the place that helped Frenzy find his forever home.

A Pawtastic Walk For A Cause

20140907_113742 -RC

On September 7th, my friend Tierce and I went for a walk together. But this wasn’t just any walk, it was Paws For A Cause, a charity fundraiser for the BC SPCA.

I’ve attended this walk every year since I was a pup and Tierce has come with me every time. Cool, huh? Don’t tell him I said that though. He may think I’m getting clingy or something. He is a Shiba, after all, and they’re touchy like that. BOL.

Lots of nice pups from all over town were at the walk too. Some even dressed up for the occasion.

Most of the walk was along the waterside. What a tease. Especially since it was such a nice day out.

In fact, it was so hot out that we ended up cutting the walk a bit short. A few of the dogs in our pack were exhausted, and since I have dark fur I was pretty warm too and didn’t complain one bit. Besides, all I wanted to do was go swimming, anyway. *sigh*

Once we returned from the walk, we all drank a lot of water. If I remember correctly, our pack cleaned out three of the water bowls that were waiting at the finish, and I drank a bottle of water. (Yes, I like to drink bottled water. I also like to drink from squirt bottles.)

When the event was over, my humans and I had to make our way back to the car. We stopped a few times along the way to enjoy some shade here and there. It was HOT out!

And if we thought it was hot outside, it was an oven inside the car. The humans cranked the cold air and then we waited in the shade until it was a much more acceptable temperature.

But even though it was super hot out, it was still a pawtastic walk and our team raised just over $300 for the BC SPCA. *high paw*

Until next year….
