On behalf of our organization THANK YOU so much for the generous
donation in memory of Skeezix. Please pass our thanks to each and
everyone we donated.
We were so touched by the generosity that he and Karen inspired that
we have rescued a kitty (and his brother) in his honor.
His name is Magnus and he is a lovely Flame Point Siamese who was at
risk for being put down at an animal shelter.
As I type I can hear the happy sounds of kitten wrestling and the
jingle of the kitty toys in the kitchen. After being in a cage at the
shelter we've introduced them to the joys of the cardboard cat
scratcher this morning. I'd say it was a hit. ;-)
We will definitely reach out to Karen personally. We are grateful to
her for providing "the summer intern" a home and have been enjoying
following our little guy on the blog. We know Skeezix isn't to be
replaced but we hope she is finding comfort with the pitter-patter of
kitten feet in the house again.
Thank you all so much for contributing. This has surpassed our wildest dreams as to what we could accomplish.
Well done Chey, Jeter Harris and Raypod. It has been a huge success and shows how popular and loved Skeezix was and always will be.
Thank you all for your wonderful response ... And thank you Bonnie for setting up this memorial fund in honor of a great little man. But I want to especially thank Karen for giving a voice to Skeezix ... and for bringing us all together. Quite remarkable!
This is really a fantastic outpouring of support...and entirely appropriate because Skeezix and his peeps have been such wonderful friends to all of us. Love love love!
We've been mostly offline the last week, and were go smacked by the response to this. Words cannot express how touched Mr TF and I are. Wonder cats is a tiny grassroots rescue in SF from which we just adopted a Skeezix-colored kitten. This money will save a lot of kittehs. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We'll never forget you, Skeezix! You touched the world and made it a better place. Love, Laura and The Cat in the Clover kitties
