Per our discussion, the donation will be in the mail tomorrow.

If Bailey is still there when you visit, give him some special attention for me.

Mark,
When I go around to donate to my local animal shelter, I buy a few bags of kitty food off them and then I give the food back to them as a donation... so they get the food and the money!

Sorry that I can't help your local shelter Mark, I'll compensate by giving double my usual donation of food to mine...

Breaks your heart to see a kitty alone and abandoned at a shelter... 3 is all I can handle...

Regards,
Luke.

He is still there as of today. Don't tempt me, I might figure out, who much it would cost to fly him to California. He is my type of kitty, an independent spirit.

Thanks Luke........
My heart goes out to all kitties everywhere.......
You an I both know we just can't save 'em all.........
I have 4 of my own and love them soooooooooooo much.

If I would only win the lottery (LOL) you know how many I would help..........

'Till then, I just do what I can......

And I thank you for caring enough to help those that YOU can.

I wish you all the best in your efforts, Mark; I also hope that Bailey has a nice, loving home to go to, soon - he reminds me of my mother's cat, Tigger. About two months ago, we took in, four 'stray' kittens....its a long story, but its probably fair to say that someone had moved and their female cat had been left behind and it had kittens. You can imagine our surprise when we got a visit from an RSPCA inspector, regarding four kittens seen in our back garden - we didn't have four kittens, we had six cats! The kittens were rounded up, but the mother shot off - we regularly put food out for her and see her in the garden. I suppose that means we're feeding 11!

When I go shopping, I regularly buy extra food, to place in the boxes for the various shelters - that food includes the good quality dry food like Iams, Purina and Hills. I'd love to donate to your local shelter (as I would S@H), but its very difficult for me ro make 'credit card' payments, due to a miserable excuse for a Homo Sapien, who effectively left me holding their debts!



Don't take life too seriously, as you'll never come out of it alive!

No need to apologize........
I ask for help for my kitties, but never put anybody down because they are unwilling or unable to help........

Stories like yours and Luke's leave me with hope that there are some of us who care.......

As I have stated.......I would do more if I only could......and sometimes I actually exceed what I can afford to help the kitties......
It's an emotional thing for me.
But I would rather see them with than worry about me without.

Hi Mark, I would love to donate to your kitties as well but my wife and I are still trying to get out from under the debit racked up by our move up here. We are making some progress but not much. We donate to pet rescue orgs. whenever we can. As you know all our cats were rescues except one.




What you do today you will have to live with tonight

As stated........no apoloiging needed here..........
Thank you for taking care of the kitties where and when you can.

This just consumes so much of my being that it gets hard for me to express it sometimes........

Is it so wrong for me to love another animal other that myself?

I just can't explain it.......so I express it in the only terms I can........

I feel another kitty poem coming on...............LOL.

The kitties are wandering......and I'm not sure just why,,,,,,,
Must be a 'kitty thing' and I surely will try
to keep up with them as they wander about
and once in a while raise my own little shout.

'Bout the way that life is, as only I can forsee it,
My sad little bits about life as only I know it.
You can not understand, and I would not expect ya to,
for you have not been through all the things I've been through.

So I bare you my soul, and my troubles and trials
And ask that you bear with me for just a short while.
The time that it takes to read my sorry li'l post
And think about things that I hold here so close.

The kitties have found some grand things in their travels.......
'Bout this life and it's meaning and whatever it's trials.
I don't brandish words here like a sword in a fight,
'Cuz that would tarnish my ability to say what is right.

And right I am often, though I am surely not always...
So take my kitty words in doubt if you must truly and can be
Someone who can't trust evry word that you do see.
But I cherish the faith the some here have put with me.

Thousands of users come here every day......
And some may stop by for to read what I say.
My pride is not broken if they do not agree
with the things that I post here, what I say and I see.

But I shall continue to share what I know and I learn
with my kitty friends here and forever shall yearn
to be a good friend to my friends here on Seti,
Not for what I have earned, but for what it shall get me.

May your lives be long,
happiness and truth be with you.

May your troubles be few,
And our friendship be forever.

Love from the kitties be with you all.........

Lottery!? Who Said Lottery? New Zealand's National Lottery got to an outstanding (not much compared for you guys in America) NZ$25 million (roughly US$13 million) ,the biggest jackpot it's ever reached. No win for me though :(

As I sit here and ponder about what my life has all meant
and wonder about this journey upon which God he has sent
And the lives that I touch each and every day he's given
me to spend as I wish, no matter where I am driven.

He's blessed me with so much, I am ashamed to admit
that I've been a fool and wasted so damn much of it.
But still he has offered his hand unto mine
so while I can cry, I also can shine.

There is only so much I can put into words
to share with you all some of what I have learned.
So I offer to you sometimes now and again
My little views on life and what it all means.

My tears come more often the older I get
soft sorry me, yet I do not regret
the fact that my life, so little it be
I can share with you here, and call the thing 'we'.

For even as I grow older each day of my life,
I go back in my mind to an earlier time.
To things that I should and I should not have done.
But peace comes in admitting what you have done wrong.

My friends here are many, my enemies few
and thankfully I think I can call my friends 'you'.
You have sang me your songs, and shared your life's troubles
And I hope I have helped some here o'er more than a few tumbles.

We laugh and we sing, and we talk and we share....
But under the surface, I know some of you care
'bout what happens to others, though we cannot arrange it
so our will could be given to others to change it.

Such is God's gift of life to us all.
We can ignore it or embrace it and answer his call.
I've been such a fool, and shall always be so
but I thank Him for giving me this life for my own.

So please be kind to me, in your thoughts and your prayers.
Give love to all others, no matter when, no matter where.
It will all come back to you, no matter how much you give......
For no matter how much they take, you shall always receive.

Some day I'll not come back, and you all may then wonder
where the kittyman went, and will things ever come under
his spell again ever, but you need not to worry...
My spirit will live here forever and surely

If my life has gone cold, my spirit, it never shall die.
For I have told you all here 'bout the where and the why.
'Bout the kitties I love, and the lives that they touch
and the fact that I care 'bout them so very much.

I hope I've inspired some of you now to give thought
'bout your lives and their meaning and whether you ought
to think about what has meaning to you and you will then discover.
You will find that your life touches so many others.

So I leave you tonight with this little thought,
Think twice 'bout your actions, think twice 'bout your thoughts....
Treat all who you meet with the utmost of care.....
For where'er they are, you may someday be there.

So frown not upon the sad, downtrodden man
who may fight to get up from the place he is in.
Lend your hand to him, reach to him, you are stronger right now.
So give him a lift, he will thank you somehow.

I know that these words will get through here to some,
and others will think I am silly and come
to the conclusion that I don't know what I say when I shout.
But I assure you I know what I'm talking about.



May your lives be long,
your troubles be few,
and our friendship be forever.......

A lion rides a horse in a circus show in Xiamen in southeast China's Fujian province Tuesday Sept. 30, 2008. The circus shows are being held during a golden week holiday to mark China's National Day, the 59th anniversary of the founding of communist China.

OK.......
I think I have a driver lined up for next weekend to haul a half ton of kitty food to my kitties.......

Will you help too?

Well....it's official......my friend and yours John Galt 007 has offered the use of his pickup truck this coming Saturday to help haul a kitty food stash to my kitty friends at the Fox Valley Human Association shelter. Not only that, but he has promised to help me with the purchase as well, so I think we shall be taking something like 600 pounds or more of kitty kibble for the kitties to crunch on for a while.
Thank you so much John for your offer of help.....that would not fit so well in my '92 Olds Cutlass.....LOL.
