What a week I’ve had, and it’s not over yet!
Event after event, that’s my life lately. I’m loving it, but it’s a purrty grueling schedule. Not for the faint of heart.
As you know, Friday was National Bow Tie Day. As a part of that, Cat Depot offers specially selected cats for $20.00 until September 2. That’s wonderful, because we can help those guys find homes.
I’ve been posting their pictures and stories on Facebook all week. My purrsonal favorite is Gracie.
She’s a pretty little girl and she’s special needs, so she’s close to my heart.
She has seizures so she needs medicine, but she is a wonderful girl.
If she gets adopted, I’m donating my allowance in her honor.
You said you would do the same, so let’s both hope she gets home really soon.
Then there was the Bow-Tie Meet and Greet from 4-7 PM on Friday.
I took a nice little seat and was very laid back about the whole thing.
But then I decided to show my sense of humor for the crowd….
…I jumped on Petunia’s head and the crowd went crazy with laughter.
That was fun!
On to the next event on Saturday, which was a pet expo called Crazy 4 Paws.
My mom had a booth for her paintings, but I worked the money box.
That’s what I do best.
When people hear my story, dollars start dropping into the box.
On Sunday I’m off to a special event at JDub’s Brewery.
They’ve gone and done it…
…They named a beer after me!
Can you believe it?
It’s called Bow-Tie’s Brew.
Bow-Tie’s Brew, that’s the brew for me!
The event is from 1-4 PM and I’ll be there to see everyone. My Cat Depot friends will be there, chatting up the Giving Challenge.
Speaking of the Giving Challenge, it’s on September 1-2 from noon to noon.
This is the big deal for me and for Cat Depot.
It’s the chance to make $100,000 in 24 hours.
My shift starts at noon on September 1st.
I’ll be there, helping the wonderful volunteers answer the phones and take donations.
People can call Cat Depot from noon to noon September 1-2. They can also enter their donations online.
Some people have already completed forms and volunteers will be entering their donations during that time.
It’s going to be fun, because Cat Depot will be open 24 hours for a big Cat’s Pajamas time.
We’ve done everything we can to make this a fun week and build-up to the Giving Challenge. But, the Giving Challenge is really serious business.
The funds received during these 24 hours will help our feline friends live at Cat Depot until they find homes.
We all have to do our part.
We all have to tell everyone we know and have them tell everyone they know. This is so important.
Oh! And for everyone who is a first time giver, their money will be doubled up to $250!
That means if you find a person who didn’t give to Cat Depot in last year’s giving challenge and they give $250, Cat Depot gets $500!
So, Whitey, I know I can count on you and your family. Let’s get everyone else to commit to Giving Challenge 15.
Are ya with me?
Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent
