Thankful Thursday

So far I’ve sold 34 copies of Summer at the Lake with Petie. Today I received my first payment in the amount of $119. I haven’t been paid for all the copies yet so there’s more money coming (but not until next month)! I took great joy in going to Duncan’s Place and clicking on their donate button and donating that money. As both Blurb.com and Duncan’s Place both use Paypal, it was very easy.

Ordering is very easy, too. Just click on the picture below and it will take you to the order page!

The deadline for ordering in time for Christmas in the U.S. is December 12. Blurb.com delivers all over the world, so don’t think you can’t order if you live outside the U.S.

Thank you to everyone who has or is going to order Summer at the Lake with Petie. And Happy Holidays to all!

Random Stuff on a Tuesday

Guess what I got today! A picture of GinaTheMinPin reading ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie‘. How cool is this?

Catching up on my reading

And another wonderful friend, @BunnyJeanCook, has written about the book on her blog, Bunny’s Blog. Now, if you’ve never visited Bunny’s Blog, you should. Unlike yours truly, Bunny tackles important stuff on her blog. Here’s just a couple of the things she’s written about:

Help Pawcurious Help Homeless Pets
Adopt a Less-Adoptable Pet Week

I hope you’ll all add Bunny’s Blog to your reading list!

If anyone else wants to send me a picture of themselves reading Summer at the Lake with Petie, please do! Maybe I’ll make a whole page of the pictures.

In other news, @BorisKitty is still collecting green papers to help Peanut and Kiki’s families with the v-e-t bills. These poor kitties were shot with a pellet gun and need lots of v-e-t help. And that means lots and lots of green papers. So help out anyway you can, even if it’s just one or two little papers.

I’m sorry to say that I’m going to end on a sad note here. Yet another beautiful angel, Whiska Pusskat, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge to get his wings. You can read about him here: Whiska Pusskat: In Memorium. I hope you’ll all stop by and say a word or two to his family.

There have been so many furriends crossing the bridge lately that I’m thinking I should add an ‘In Memorium’ page to my blog. Except I’m wondering if that’s just a little morbid. What do you think?

In case we don’t get to talk to each other again before Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!

Edit: Here’s @smokey8’s sisfer, Princess.

She’s been doing a lot of reading. Looks like she just finished not just  ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie’, but also ‘welcom to my werld‘ by my pal Henry Steiff (@henryandfriends). Looks like Princess is quite the reader. Now all she needs are copies of @maxthequiltcat‘s book, ‘The Zen of Max‘ and @CheshireK‘s book,’Please Send Money‘ (which I read and thoroughly enjoyed).

Speaking of  ‘The Zen of Max’, I won a copy from the drawing on Max’s blog! I’ll be doing a review of it after I read it. Can’t wait!

Thankful Thursday

We been losing a lot of pals. The lastest was our pal @Ryker_Tyker. @MaggieTKat wrote a lovely blog about him and you can read it here: Remembering @Ryker_Tyker.

This may seem like an odd way to start a Thankful Thursday post, but all these losses  lately reminded me how grateful I am for all the wonderful friends I’ve made since I started twittering, blogging, and being on Facebook. Anipals and their humans are amazingly loving, giving, and so supportive of one another. Everyone I’ve met here works in some way to make life better for anipals and their humans, even if it’s just by giving an animal a home.

I’m especially thankful for @Mulder_cat & Scully_Cat and @Staffpurrson. Mom knows @Staffpurrson from a different online community and he introduced Mom & me this wonderful community that we otherwise would never have known existed.

I also want to thank @Rumblepurr. He was the first one to find my blog the very first day I posted it. I don’t know how, but he did. And then he wrote a blog introducing me and my new blog, and the rest is history!

So I just want to make sure you all know how much I care about you all and how glad I am I found you all. We sometimes forget to say that and just sort of take each other for granted. I wanted to make sure that my online friends know that I never take you for granted even when I forget to say it. Now I have to make sure I let my offline friends know it, too.

Hugs, purrs, smoochies and lots of love to all of you.
