Raise Your Paw

Gaius challenged us kitties to Raise Our Paws for a cause. Well I very enthusiastically raise my paw for my shelter.

I had a short but nice stay at the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) of Waukesha County in Wisconsin before mum brought me to my furever home. They are a furry nice place and mum helps them out with green papers when she can. Even today they had a holiday bazaar and mum went to buy a few things for me and for her.

Below are a couple of the things she got for herself. They are fancy chocolates. Mum says the first one will be good to serve next week for Thanksgiving.
This one she just thought was cute, a little yellow kittie and a mousie.

They have a great facility for all sort of animals. But now they need more room as the number of kitties and other creatures are out numbering the woofies. So they need to expand so they have more room. Mum sent a special payment in to help with the expansion. Every little green paper helps, then they can help more kitties and buns and lots of other creatures.

Mum said they must be crowded with kitties. They had 6 kitties in the lobby area in cages as the back was all full. Mum said she even saw a kittie who could have been me! Same markings, the white on the bottom, how the white comes up my shoulders, the little white stripe on my head. Tail was a little more floofly and, oh, it was a girl kittie, named Piper and about 10 months old. Mum was furry tempted to bring her home, but didn't. Piper has sisfur, Murmur, and HAWS wants to adopt the two together. Phew. I like being an only cat.
