January 29th!!! Tina W.!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to TINA W.!!!  You, Tina, are the star of the day!  Thanks for helping me to feed the kitties this morning with your donation to the Feed a Cat For Christmas Campaign.  Its winding down, another week of people helping me to feed all the kitties I feed in the hood.  I go through three 2-gallon bags, and then some, of dry food, and way over a case of wet food - actually, a little more than 7 LARGE sized Yogurt containers, that yes, are filled up each morning when I return from feeding, ready for another day.  The amount is staggering.  I really couldn't do it without help, so thank you very very very very very very very much (yes, I could go on...  :)) for all the support I have received.

As you know, cats are a passion of mine. But another group that I'm passionate about is the elderly. There are currently 1.4 million older Americans living in nursing facilities and many of them experience a lot of loneliness.

A friend recently suggested something that will support BOTH of these groups--by providing food to the cats and brightening the day of a nursing home resident. For each $5 donation, I will send a one-of-a-kind "paw-decorated" valentine to a resident of St. Ann's.  All proceeds will go to feed and care for the cats.  Just be sure to put "Nursing Home" or "St. Ann's" in the "Send a note to seller" box on PayPal.

Another friend has generously agreed to sponsor the first 25 Valentine's Day cards for St. Ann's Nursing Home residents.  I'm challenging you--my friends and supporters--to share the love this Valentine's Day and provide another 75 cards to the folks at St. Ann's. Just $5 will brighten the day of someone, and provide homeless cats with food and medical care.

The kids at Gates-Chili Middle School will be making the valentines cards (thank you Mrs. McBride!). You can also purchase one and have it mailed to anyone you choose.  Just be sure to note the name and address of the intended recipient in the "Send a note to seller" box on PayPal.  If you would like to put in the mail to me, or email me, again, please note recipient and address.  

Thank you so much for your support for this very important, yet crazy mission I am on, to help Rochester's homeless animals.  


  1. Super COOL idea!!!! It's a win-win for some lonely elderly folks and for some kitties that a little means so much! C'mon humans... let's keep it up !!

  2. My student's are very excited to help out and make the cards - it goes along with our schools "Kindness Week" celebration. it's a wine-win-win for the kids, the elderly and the animals. :D - Kristin

  3. Ok, there were a few typos in that last comment - a misplaced apostrophe, a missing capital letter and apparently a Freudian slip - I meant WIN-win-win, not WINE-win-win!! LOL
