Have happened in my life. First I entered in a photo contest of a group that I am a proud cat to be in. It is called Orange & White & We Look Alike! My pals in this group are just awesome. So they had a Fall Photo Contest and naturally, Mom entered me in it.
Secondly, my Dad has been in and out of one hospital and a week later, he was put back in again! You see, Dad has a bad heart. Some times the heart would beat fast and slow back to normal. Well for the past 3 weeks, the heart would not beat normal. Mom said something like his heart was beating like he ran a marathon and it wouldn't slow down at all. So Dad had to go into the hospital again to get the heart to beat normal. The doctor's had to do 2 types of procedures. One was to check for any blockages by going down into his throat with a scope to look for any blockage in the valves. Then the second procedure was to catheter him going into his high part of the leg (groin area) and slide it up into his chest and to his heart to "shock" the heart back to normal beating. With all that was said and done, Dad is now back home today and is very, very, tired. Mom will stay home from work to take care of Dad for a while.
Now getting back to the contest. I WON! Meow you all. I couldn't believe it. And the best part of winning this contest was the prize of $50.00 is going to a shelter that we know very well. I am so excited about the money going to the shelter. Baltimore City Animal Shelter in Balto. Md. in the area of Hampden is a great place and my mom grew up around in Hampden. So it was a good choice to send the money to.
I would like to thank my group for the contest and zealies. The money will be sent to a great place. Again, thank you all in the group. All the pictures were fantastic and everyone was a winner.

concats on the contest! We hope they find a way to make your dad's heart behave itself so he will get better and stay better. Heart problems make a guy feel terrible. xxxoooVince
Sorry to hear about your Dad. We are sending our healing Purrs and Prayers his way. Hope he is feeling better. Tell him to get plenty of rest and not to over do.
Concats on winning your contest. Any shelter can use money these days. Glad it was the City Shelter that the money goes to they really can us it with all the cutbacks.
Have a pawsome day.
Hope you and your family have a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving.
