Hey everyone! Hope you guys are having a good Sunday! It's raining here. The birds at the bird feeder looked all rumpled. but still delicious...
I'm keeping busy playing. My mom is sewing. If you guys read River's diary, you know that his mom made a lot of catnip toys and donated them to local shelters. My mom was so inspired by this kind act that she decided to do the same thing. She sews, and has tons of fabric. (She made me the silly elf hood that I'm wearing in my pictures. sigh.) Right now she has all the pieces cut and half of them sewn for about 60 toys! Plus extra ones for me and her friends' cats. She bought organic catnip from the pet store and made some test shapes to see if I like them. And I do! Mom is surprised how much more into the organic catnip I am than the old nip she had. I've been nipping out!
My mom found a no-kill shelter about 30 min away and a stray-cat rescue and foster program based about 5min away that she will bring toys to. We will post pics! We are so excited!! we can't stop using exclamation points!!!!!
So my mom and I wanted to share with you this good feeling. It is such an amazing happy feeling. We thanked River's mom for inspiring her to do this. Maybe we can now inspire you? If we all do little things, they can add up to big things. (sorry for being corny.)
Thank you to everyone who already helps kitties in need all throughout the year. I'm excited for Tigger's new brother Sobe, who's dad rescued him from a hungry stray cat life and will have a great Christmas this year.
Keep warm everybody! Mom is going back to sewing now.

Thats furtastic of your Mom! My Mommie just donated some blankies and toys to her local shelter. She said it made her feel real good! Merry Christmas!
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
What a great idea~ those kitties are gonna love those new toys!! My mommy loves your little elf hood so much, she was showing your pics to friends this weekend ;)
Toki this is pawsome! Your mom is a really good kitty momma and it's so sweet of her to do this! My momma can't sew to save her life so that's out. We can't wait to see those pictures! Bless you guys!
What a thoughtfur and kind gesture of Christmas meowy love!
True Christmas spirit!
I bet your mom could sell kitty clothes like you are wearing, by selling them at local shelters and donating the funds to that shelter. Then everyone would be happy...peeps with original (art) clothes fur their felines and $ for the shelters, which they always are in lack of.
Commiserations on the elf hood Toki, but if it encourages your Mum in her great enterprise, you have made a noble sacrifice!
Hooray and HAPPY RIVER DANCES to you Toki and to your mommy! I'm so happy and filled with the warm loving Catmus Spirit!
