We recently pmailed Boxie on an update of our guys. His typist has another job and is simply being swamped.
We are wondering if something Boxie bought up might work if others are willing to help?
If each who had the time could take say, 5 names of cats on the list, and reach out to them to get updates, it would sure help. If we, all who wanted to participate, took say 5 furs each to check up on, then no one would be overwhelmed.
Would anyone be willing to do this? If you would please post under this diary...and post who you will check up on, so the next fur and person will know.
Mommy knows it's summer, and folks and furs are very busy, so we understand that it's a tough time. But we know how much Boxie is loved here, and how everyone here wants to help others..
we send many purrs, and power of the paw to those out there tonight without a home or struggling with health.
love and light,

There's a lot of names there. It's late here and the human has work in the morning but we'll check back later to see if we can contact some. This may be a pain but what are the chances of adding numbers in front of them. So when we report back we can say ....... number .... in case there are a couple with the same name. Or when cats report in it might be easy for Boxie to find them. Just a thought purrs Sam
Excuse my sister she doesn't realise how impersonal numbers are. I know they say we'll all be numbers one day, Oh noooo... look at our microchips. Ahhhhhhh numbers. But yes we'll check back later.
I think this process would go quickly if you compose a short pmail asking for an update on the cat's health. Then you can copy and paste to each cat you are checking on. Just my thoughts on how we could accomplish that long list quickly. Reporting back to Boxie might take more effort, but the initial contact should go quickly!
Here is a sample pmail you can use if you'd like. I do recommend looking at the cat's page first to make sure the cat hasn't journeyed to the bridge. You can see what Boxie has on the list as the current condition by going to the forum thread.
Sample Pmail (feel free to add to the pmail listing the condition of the cat as shown in the purr thread):
I'm helping Boxie Brown update the Hazel Lucy Purr List for Kitties in Need of Purrs thread in the Catster forum. You are currently on that list. Could you please update me on your condition, and whether you would like to remain on the list for cats to purr for you?
I've sent out letters from the first cat on the list (Lolly) down through (and including) Pieces (10th cat on list).
I'll post out to the next 5, Fuzz - Rex then check in again when the human gets back from work. Thanks Samoa for the letter.
Ok I've done that 5.
Fuzz has gone on to the bridge (It's on his page)
I'll check later for more cats. Purrs Sam. Maybe I'll get my brother to do some too.
Is there anyone else doing the list? I have had 2 replys where should I send them? Here or to Boxie.Purrs Sam
BTW did you know purrs are needed for those that live where Icebox lives. They have had terrible storms that uprooted trees and removed tiles off the roofs.
Oh so many who need purrs.
I discussed this with the Brofurs and we can help a little
We could take turns and check up a few kitties in need.
We will do Joey to George.
If someone can pawmail us so we know where to post the replies we will get our paws moving.
Thanks too all our furends and Purrs to all in need.
Timmmy and family

I'm sorry I wasn't clear...send your updates to Boxie Brown. His typist is the only one who can access the purr list for corrections.
Thanks everyone for all your help!
