Ok, so mom twisted (gently) our paws to do a blog post for her today. We weren't sure we wanted to go in on this commercialism, but we love her, so here goes.
You know from our past posts that our Mom does Reiki healing and uses Flower Essences for animals and peoples. She also does volunteer work at the UN-Cats shelter to give Reiki to the kitties who live there.
Well, while she's not leaving her day job, she is now going to be doing it for more local animals and to more animals over the internets.
Her new website and facebook is called With a Gentle Touch and she would love to have our friends in the cat blogosphere be the first to look! Glogirly (you know, Katie and Waffles Too's servant) did all the designs for her (we think Katie helped, we KNOW W2 didn't!) so it looks really nice.
One thing we want to make sure you don't miss is the Shelter Blessing Roll. We want you to suggest shelters the you might have come from or that your humans support or volunteer with, or anyone doing work that you support. Each week, she is going to offer Reiki blessings to all of them, and encourages you to do the same, where ever you are in the world. That way the shelters will get an extra power boost to help get all the kitties and woofies into forever homes and feel like they have support in taking care of them until they do. They can be from anyplace in the world and they can help any kind of animal. You can tell us about anyone you wan't.
She'll do some blog posts (don't worry, she will still do ours... FIRST... right mom?) and give some good information and maybe some funny stuff in a newsletter too. She'll talk about ways to get closer to us, and how to help keep us happy and healthy. And while you know that she is a crazy cat lady (that's right, we said it) she would love it if you shared this with your friends, especially your woofie friends, cause she works with all kinds of animals, and she knows they all need love and support too!
So please take time to check things out if you would and PLEASE let her know some pawesome shelters we can add to our roll. We usually sit with mom (or on mom) when she meditates so we'll add our energy to the blessings too. We hope you will offer your purrs and prayers to them too.
(here comes the REALLY shameless plug part). Please visit her at www.withagentletouch.com . Like her on the Facebooky thing, or the tweety bird thing, or her newsletter thing, follow the bloggy thing like you follow us, whatever you want. Oh yeah, and she said there would be a CONTEST with several prizes when the first eleventy hundred peoples (that's 100, sheesh Dex) and all eleventy hundred (100!!!!) are eligible, even across the world!
Thank you for your attention, we will now return to our regularly scheduled blogging. (RIGHT MOM???)
Harry, Dexter and Tipp
(there mom, did we put it out there for you? So where's that salmon you promised, huh? Don't hold back or we won't hit the "Publish" button, we mean it.... no, Tipp didn't say we'd do this for free....)
Hey everyone... Dexter here. Yep, it's another event at the Tabby Cat Club! C'mon over and find out what's behind the name of some of your favorite Tabby Cat Friends! (and you can find out how weird my mom and dad are...) See ya THERE !
Our friends at the UN-Cats Feline Rescue Sanctuary, where Tipp used to live, wanted to say some Thank You's so we thought we'd give them our post space today. Take it away Kitties!
All of us kitties are VERY,VERY thankful for our founders, Miss Amy and Miss Mandie. Without them, UN-Cats wouldn't be here for us and all the kitties they have helped.
We are thankful for all our volunteers who spread the word about us at PetSmart adoptions and events like Bark-in-the-Park (yep, the woofies love it when we come!) and Downtown Live! They also help raise green papers for us with lots of projects, and they come to cuddle us and take care of us!
I'm Annie. I have FeLV and I'm thankful there was someone to take me in and give me a fun place to play while I wait for my forever family!
I'm Jerry Boy (you can call me J.B.) I am thankful for all the people who send us prezzies from our Amazon Wish List. It's like Christmas ! YEA! BOXES !!!!! (full and empty, it's a win-win)
We're kitties from the Copemish Feral Colony. We are thankful that we were part of the TNR project that got us spayed/neutered, vaccinated and returned to our colony. We're also thankful for our kittens that were rescued and are now in forever homes.
We're thankful for all our supporters who have made generous donations to help care for our every need.
I'm Nei-Hao and I am thankful that one of our volunteers comes out to give us Reiki and Flower Essences.
Hi, I'm Buddah and I have FIV. I am really thankful that there is a Sanctuary for kitties like me. UN-Cats took me in from another animal shelter and I think I'm gonna like it here until I find a forever home.
I'm Midnight and I love all the donations we get from our supporters. om nom nom nom...
I'm Jessie James... well I WAS Jessie James, but I am thankful that my new mom saw me at PetSmart and adopted me. Now I have a new name... B.B. and a new brofur and a happy, forever home. I am thankful for all the people who adopt us UN-Cats.
And you all know me. I'm Tipp and I'm an UN-Cat. I am thankful for all of the above, and that my mom and dad help out the UN-Cats like they do. I know that lots of you help out shelters too, and I'm thankful for all you do for all the kitties (and woofies) out there. You are all the best!
I want you to know two things: 1. I was NOT on the counter during this incident. I was NOT on the counter, I wouldn't EVER get on the counter, I just would NEVER do that. (Tipp: yeah, right, all who believe him, stand on your head...) 2. No meat was actually nommed during this incident.
I did NOT... have CARNAL relations... with that pork roast...
