Hi Efurryone! I haven't posted a diary entry in a long time, but I think this is impurrtant, as it is an auction to raise money for The Cat House On The Kings no-kill pet sanctuary and adoption center.
Background: My mommy has been selling things on eBay for many years. She tries very hard to describe the things she sells accurately and she ships them quickly, but you just can't purrlease all of the people all of the time. Mommy had a purrfect 100% positive feedback rating on eBay up until a few days ago, when a mean lady gave Mommy a negative feedback rating because an old vintage dress she bought from Mommy arrived with some cat hair on it. (Mommy thought the dress looked clean when she sent it, but cat hairs can be sneaky, MOL!) The mean person (I refuse to call her a "purrson") left Mommy that nasty feedback before she ever even let Mommy know that she wasn't happy with the dress, so Mommy didn't even have a chance to try and make things right before her purrfect feedback score was ruined. (Mommy is still going to refund the mean lady's money when she gets the dress back; she offered to pay the cleaning bill if the lady wanted to keep the dress, but the woman told Mommy that she would never wear it!) OK...long story short...Some of Mommy's cat-loving friends on Facebook said that cat hair is an enhancement, not a detriment. Then my furiend Princess Kitty's mom (my Auntie Val) chimed in that if Mommy would auction off some of my fur on eBay, she would bid on it! Mommy thought that would be funny, so she got some of my fur with the Furminator (She had my purrmission, of course), and put it up for auction on eBay, with the bidding starting at just one cent. This started out as a joke, but now my fur has some real bids on it, so Mommy has purromised to donate all of the proceeds from this auction to The Cat House On The Kings. Along with the sample of my fur, Mommy will send the lucky high bidder a photograph of ME playing the banjo! So if you would like to suppurrt a very worthy cause AND win a swatch of my fur and a photo of yours truly, go to the eBay auction URL below and take my fur...PURRLEASE! MOL!
(Please note: If this link doesn't work or if you get a message saying that the listing has been removed, it's just Catster fleas....Type in a search for Genuine Cat Hair from my Cat Curly (without quote marks) and it should show up.)

What a great thing your mommy is doing, tell her to ignore the mean woman.
Mommy just read about this now since we were on vacation, she thinks this is a great idea! Cat hair clearly just improves everything out there!
MOL! Mommy remembers reading on FB about the mean person's feedback. I hope your fur fetched a lot fur the Cat House on the Kings!
