Yeah, we beat our goal for fundraising at GoFundMe. If you still want to donate, you can still do so. We will be closing donations around midnight EDT on Sunday so that we can withdraw funds the following week and donate them to Wonder Cat, which is a small shelter out of San Francisco that the Food Lady has discovered.
We did get an email from her and she says that she has been overwhelmed with emails and snail mail condolences. When she read ours, she said, “This is just amazing. I cannot say more; I am indeed overwhelmed.” And I think she repeated that about three times–not knowing what else to say. Mr. Tasty Face may need to build an ark if she’s crying half as much as the Woman has been every time she logs into see more donations and more memories. And we’re not even related!
You know this all started when she started asking folks what shelter Karen might appreciate a note from if we gave a small donation in Skeezix’ memory and maybe she could pass that on. Little did we know that with Jeter and Raypod talking this would become the Go Fund Me site. We tied to the Furkids idea of turning the blogosphere pink to raise some more awareness. You all have been more than generous and this kind of support just takes our breath away.
For those who have donated, we will keep the site open to donations through Sunday, as we promised. At that time we will close the page to donations and remove the funds to have them transferred to Wonder Cat. We will keep you all posted here and on the donation page as to the progress so you know exactly what is happening to your generous donations.
