Giving a Paw to Cats Protection UK!

Howdy fur-iends! How are you all enjoying this lazy Friday afternoon? We sure are, though the weather is as dull as a bean's shopping list. Ah well, at least the flowers are looking purr-ty!

Seeing that nothing of note has really happened today, we would like to take a moment in this blog post to write about an organization we feel very passionate about - Cats Protection UK

You might remember that we wrote up a previous post which talked about our encounter with the good volunteers of this well known feline charity (you can find it here). Here, we'd like to discuss how we'd like to do our part!

First of all, we've made it so that 10% of all proceeds earned through our Greeting Card Universe storefront go towards Cats Protection UK. The money collected will go towards... 

1) housing cats that have been abandoned
2) helping them receive the proper care at their adoption and homing centres
3) encouraging the neutering of cats 
4) spreading information to the public about cats and their care

Secondly, we have set up a cute, little widget on the right hand side of our blog that gives potential donors an easy and secure way of making donations to Cats Protection UK. We have set a (hopefully!) achievable goal of $500 that must be reached by the end of 2011. 

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, you can read about Cats Protection UK in detail on their extremely informative website. You'll be amazed at what these wonderful people do for us kitties!

We hope you'll help us spread the word!!

Hi - we are from the RSPCA but mour mum has had 2 before cats from the Cats Protection League and she does donate a small amount each month to them too. She tried to get a cat from them before she found us but they don't have cats in our area very much. We hope to see you on the CB again soon.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We love your idea (and it is a very reasonable goal) of having some money set aside for Cats Protection UK! There are so many wonderful cat rescue groups we've gotten to know through the CB.

Have a wonderful weekend!
