We’ve spent a lot of time in #pawcircles and porchsitting lately. We’ve seen too many furriends cross the Rainbow Bridge in a very short time. When our furriends cross the bridge, the circles are for love and comfort. But sometimes, the #pawcircles and porchsitting result in a furriend getting better. This book is about a success story. This book is about the miracles that love can work.
As we all know, our pal Petie (@Petethecat) had a difficult summer. When we heard our furriend was sick, we all did what anipals do in times of trouble – we banded together to help Petie get better. And Petie did get better! In fact, he’s getting married very soon to the wonderful Pandora (@Pandafur).

‘Summer at the Lake with Petie’
It was just an amazing summer, and I wanted something to remember it by. I thought others might like to have something, too. So I put together a book: ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie‘. I gathered together stories, poems, pictures, memories, and whatever else pals wanted to submit to the book. There is a link in the sidebar to order the book and you can see sample pages there. The book is getting rave reviews from everyone who has already gotten a copy.
This book is special not just because it’s about our love for Petie and the miracles that love can work. The proceeds of this book benefit the cat sanctuary that Candy and EK came from – Duncan’s Place. It’s a wonderful group of people who foster cats in their homes, help them find furever homes, and help families down on their luck keep their pets with them. I wrote about them in an earlier blog – Blog the Change – Duncan’s Place.
One thing we’ve all said over and over the last several weeks is how lucky our now lost pals were to have had loving homes. I want all the kitties at Duncan’s Place to have that, too. Selling ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie‘ is one of the projects I have going on trying to raise money to help them take care of and find homes for the cats in their care. My goal is to sell 100 copies of the book. So far, 30 copies have been sold, so there’s still a long way to go.
I want to thank some pals who have been helping to spread the word about Summer at the Lake with Petie:
Rumblepurr put a link up on his blog: Rumblebum.
Whskr And Dash wrote a blog article about it on their blog and plan on writing another: Dash Kitten’s Musings.
Blind Maximus wrote a blog entry and put up a widget for ordering Summer at the Lake with Petie on his blog, Adventures of a Blind Dog in a Big World.
I do have the best furriends! If anyone else is interested in putting a link or a widget on your blog, let me know. I’ll send you the code.
I also have a chip-in on my blog for pals who want to donate. Or you can go to Duncan’s Place web site and donate there. Whether you order Summer at the Lake with Petie or donate through my chip in or directly on their site, I hope you’ll choose to do something, no matter how small, to help Duncan’s Place. I want every cat to be as lucky as I’ve been.
Much love to my furriends,
