Zoiee











This is Zoiee. We gave her to Marnie, my hubby's sister, for Christmas 11 years ago? She passed away (Marnie had to put her to sleep) almost 2 years ago due to complications unknown. She stopped eating and the vet didn't know what was wrong and she basically starved to death. Marnie will tell you, if she comes on, that she thinks she killed Zoiee from emotional neglect. But, I don't think so. Zoiee might of been upset from new additions to the family (baby, dog), etc., but that wouldn't of made her stop eating. Anyway, Marnie misses her dearly. She went everywhere w/Marnie. Traveling/camping/canoeing/hiking...you name it Zoiee did it. -Marnie S., NC

Good morning! Hi Zoiee girl...RIP! I will tell you right off, Zoiee was a....no-nonsense kinda girl! lol She loved her momma and didn't take any crap from anyone else! Didn't take much of anything crap or otherwise from anyone! But Marnie loved her and she was a good cat...for Zoiee. She went everywhere w/Marnie!! Hopefully Marnie will come on and clarify anything I've gotten mixed up or wrong on her post! I will call her and tell her she has been posted. Anyway, Zoiee girl, you are missed...er, by your momma that is! :)

Kim said...

Good Morning All!

Marnie, your Zoiee was a very beautiful cat! I see she loved sitting in the boat, adventure kitty! My Arthur stopped eating, grooming, etc. The vet said that there was nothing wrong, it was just his time. I breaks my heart that you feel she gave up from emotional neglect. It sounds to me like you were/are a wonderful Momma! You and your Zoiee had some wonderful times together those times will love on in your heart! Thank you so much for sharing your sweet kitty with us!

Claire said...

What a pretty girl she was and Marnie needs to know that she give Zoiee lots of love and attention, she knew she was loved. We all go through guilt when we have to make decisions about our beloved cats but she did what was best for Zoiee. Please know that we all understand how hard it was but you were a very good Mom, Marnie, with some wonderful memories.

danielle said...

Zoiee was a beautiful girl. I would love to have met one that goes canoeing and all sorts of other things. She must have been a blast. You were lucky to have her. Just don't forget the good times.

Jake is back at the vets. He is jaundice. The vet said the best case is that he has a blood parasite. The worst case is liver problems. She also said this is worse than the crystals. I am so scared right now. They won't have answers until Thursday. I will let everyone know when I do. Thanks everyone for your support.

Kim said...

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Danielle!

Claire said...

Danielle,

My love and prayers for you and Jake at this stressful time.

Emma's Kat said...

You know we're here for you Danielle! Give Jake hugs and kisses from us all!

donna said...

Morning everyone!
Hi Zoiee!
Zoiee looks like a beautiful kitty. I do love B&W kitties. And that is just so cool that she did all that traveling. I wish I could take ours like that.

Danielle, please know that you and Jakey are in our thoughts and we're all hoping for the best.

riquel said...

Zoiee was beautiful. How cool was it to have a cat you could take with you everywhere? A cat on a boat, never would have dreamed it. Marnie, don't beat yourself up over her death, it was just her time.

Danielle, I hope Jake gets to feeling better, I know what it is like to have a sick baby on your hands, especially when you don't know what or why. I will be thinking of you two, and hoping for the best.

Bluejay said...

Marnie, it's so sad that the lovely Zoiee is gone, but please don't blame yourself. Kitties can get mysterious illnesses, just as people can. It's not uncommon for an animal - or a person - to stop eating when they sense that it's time.

Danielle, I'm sorry that Jake is ill again. Best of luck. I'll be thinking of you.

LOA said...

good morning u all Danielle i know what u ar going through i and i hope your baby will get better Marnie your baby was a beautifull black an white and u did not do nothing to her My Frosty did the same thing and after her death i had her opened up to see y and it was her heart

danielle said...

Thank you everyone. It really means a lot to us.
On the lighter side you have to check out cute overload.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Zoiee was such a striking beauty. Look at the markings on her face. And what a wonderful thing, to have an "adventure cat". There are probably not a lot of those around. You were very lucky she chose to share her time with you. Marnie, I have heard also that cats and dogs know when it is their time. She definitely would not want you to feel guilt -- you know that. You also know that adventuresome kitty is waiting for you for more adventures, later on. Just cherish the time you had together. And remember how lucky you were to have had such a neat cat. I would certainly love to hear more about her adventures with you.

And Danielle, you and Jake are in all our hearts and prayers today. Missy just jumped up and put her paw on the keyboard, I know she's feeling the same.

Deb said...

Zoiee was beautiful. Marnie, you were a great "mommy", it was just time for Zoiee to go to Kitty Heaven. I know you miss her. I have lost a cat before and I am so sorry for you loss.

Danielle, Grace & Company, as well as my whole family, are praying for Jake. Please keep us posted as to how he is doing.

Kim said...

Donna! I'm guess today is the last time you'll be on before you leave. I don't know how often you'll check in today, I imagine you'll be busy packing and everything, for your trip. I hope you have a wonderful trip and a great time. I hope you do well in your marathon. More importantly, I hope your trip is a safe one. We look forward to seeing pictures on your site. We're going to miss you while you're away! Take Care.

danielle said...

Yes Donna have a great time don't forget the pictures. Good luck to the both of you!!!!!!!!!
You will be missed.

Gheeri's Servant said...

Oh, Dannie, you're making me cry! I am literally sobbing at my desk! I can't even see what I'm typing! I'm just really emo, it's not that I expect anything bad or anything. I'm really glad you took all our advice and brought him back to the vet though. I'm so sorry. I forget, where do you live again? I hope Spot isn't too sad with his buddy gone. Let us know if you need anything. We're all really hoping Jake pulls through... Hopefully it's nothing serious.

Also, Zoiee really seems like a special girl. I wouldn't be surprised if Marnie DIDN'T come to the site, simply because it sounds like it would be too painful. She sounds like she really cared a lot for Zoiee, and vice versa. It is so rare to find a cat that LIKES to travel-usually they hate it. I LOVE the pic of Zoiee relaxing on the boat. Zoiee, I hope you're playing with my Madison, Bear, Baci, and Nacho up by the Rainbow bridge, and everyone else's kitties who have gone there. We'll see you all one day!

donna said...

Thanks everyone for the trip wishes.

This is probably the last chance I'll really have to check in (or at least to take the time to post anything). Last night was so busy and today looks to be just as. And of course work decided that today would be a good deadline for something to get done. Sigh.

I'm hoping that when I get back I will read all about who will be adopting Grace and Pete and Foster and how Rose's meeting with Brutus and Marigold will have gone and how they're doing.

And I truly hope to hear good news about Jake. I'll be thinking about him.

I've taken a few pictures of our babies to have on my camera's storage card so that I can look at them throughout our trip! I already miss them and we haven't even left yet. My babies.

Silly, "curmudgeony" Maddie who *never* sleeps with us (probably because Kona and Wiley have staked out our bed), has slept on the bed with my sister! So cool.

Everyone have a safe, fuzzy couple of weeks. This may sound odd since we've never all actually met, but I'm going to miss you :-) Take care everyone. Lots of purrs and snuggles all around.

Kim said...

(*DEB*)

GUESS WHAT, I WAS CONTACTED BY SOMEONE ON TDK, YESTERDAY. SHE LIVES IN VIRGINIA AND SAW THE PICS OF GRACE AND HER BABIES. SHE JUST LOVES THEM! SHE SAID IF YOU'RE WILLING TO DRIVE VIA RICHMOND ON YOUR WAY TO DC, SHE WOULD LOVE TO TAKE ONE OF THE KITTIES!! I GAVE HER YOUR ADDRESS SIRECTLY AND ALSO GS'S ADDRESS FOR PDJ. I JUST SO HAPPY. I HOPE SHE SEES IT. I LEFT HER AM MESSAGE ON TODAY'S POST AND YESTERDAY'S. GOOD LUCK!!!! OH, HER NAME IS KATHY IN VA.

momsbusy said...

marnie, zoiee is truly a unique kitty. i have never had a cat which liked to travel. they all have yowled at the top of their lungs in the car. you were so blessed to have zoiee and she to have you. they say animals know when their time has come. don't feel guilty, she loved you too much to want you to feel that way. she's waiting at the rainbow bridge for you with her backpack packed for your next adventure. thanks for sharing your precious girl w/ us.

momsbusy said...

YAY for grace & company!!!! one more to a forever home. :)

momsbusy said...

donna - enjoy your trip and travel blessings for you and your family.

momsbusy said...

danielle - jake will be in our prayers.

Anonymous said...

Donna the name of your cat Kona means WOMAN in icelandic lol cute

loa said...

i forgat to hit other

Gheeri's Servant said...

Donna, we will miss you too! We will fill your inbox with lots of mail while you're gone! Do you think you'll have internet access at some point to check in with us?

Kim, that's great, I've seen Kathy in VA several times on TDK, so hopefully if you keep posting, she'll see it eventually. Good Luck! *so excited!*

If anyone wants to offer support for Danielle, I suggest going to her site, www.rantandrave.blogspot.com. She has up an adorable pic of Jakey...

Karen C. said...

Pretty Zoiee - how great that she liked to travel. I especially like the boat picture. Both my mother's kitties also stopped eating near the end of their lives. I doubt that such an adventurous kitty would be upset by new additions to the family. Besides, cats don't sit around and wait for you to pay attention to them. When they want attention, they come to you and demand it. It was nothing you did or didn't do, Marnie, it was just her time. And, how wonderful that you got to spend so much time with your sweet kitty! I'm at work all day and I spend so little time with them.

Love, prayers and purrrs to Jake and Danielle from Grr, Midnight, Cocoa and Karen.

Kim said...

Hey all, I forgot to mention that Danielle played a big part in Kathy from VA, responding to the comment of TDK about Grace and her kitties. She had the original comment and I added onto it. So thanks to Danni too. So much going on with her and she still finds time to help others!

rosie(sepressed) said...

..........today everything is so depressing....I am not posting....

Karen C. said...

Rose - I think we need happy comments about your new family-to-be. I love reading Rosie's comments and, as you can see, she's not posting...

casper's mom said...

Marnie you have had a wonderful time with Zoiee. It is so unusual for a cat to travel like Zoiee has. Please don't feel it is your fault that it was time for her to go to the Rainbow Bridge. I have felt like that with some of my pets that I have had to put down also but when you give them so much love, and I know you did with Zoiee, they have had a great life. Sometimes life is just not fair even for out pets or just for animals in general as well with all of us. Love the picture with Zoiee on the dashboard of the car.

Like right now I feel terrible that I can't find out why Amber is bleeding. She has old age growths and she bites on some of them and makes them bleed and I just found out that is not the problem. The other day when I was brushing her I leaned on her rear and my arm had blood on it and yesterday my husband noticed how dark it was where she urinates. I took a paper towel and wiped her and there was blood. Her bedding has had blood on it. I took her to the vet this morning and he is treating her for a bladder infection, but he could not find the source of blood. So now Danielle I really know how you feel not knowing exactly what is wrong as if she doesn't respond to this treatment it could be anything giving what her age is.

casper's mom said...

Sorry about more depressing news. Sorry Rosie, know what you mean, but yet there is good news with another kitten being adopted from Grace's litter.

danielle said...

Oh my god Casper's mom. I hope it is nothing serious. I hope she responds well to the treatment. I will keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers. Purrs and huggles fron Jake and spot sent your way.

Kim said...

Monica, you're Monica right? I have trouble keeping up with who's who. Casper's Mom, I'm so sorry! I really hope that the meds she's being treated with will help clear up the blood as well. Did the vet think it might be from the infection? I know with a bad UTI, there can sometimes be blood. PLEASE let us know how it goes. Give Amber lots of love from Oscar and Simon. I'm sending her hugs and prayers as well.

Our kitty family is hurting. We love and support you all!!!!

Bluejay said...

Caspar's Mom, you must be terribly worried. I do hope Amber is OK soon. Hang in there. I'm sure everyone here is sending you their best.

casper's mom said...

Yes Kim I am Monica. Vet didn't know for sure if it was an infection. Amber wouldn't give them an urine sample I think he was just going by what I was telling him the symptoms I have observed. I sure am praying this will help, Vet said that if it isn't an infection it could be a tumor blocking the bladder, could be cancer. When she urinates it takes three or four trys before she gets done. Thank you all for your hugs and prayers. I really do appreciate them.

Claire said...

Dear Casper's mom, I also hope all goes well with Amber. My prayer list is very long but also very sincere and I hope all goes well for you, Amber and Danielle and Jake.

Karen C. said...

Noooo! Not another sick kitty! I wish I could volunteer to be sick instead of the poor little fuzzies. I feel so bad for them.

Prayers, purrrs and hugs to Amber also! Get well!

casper's mom said...

Karen, Amber is my dog but she is still a fuzzy one. And thanks for purrs and prayers, cause to tell you the truth with having so many cats around her she probably thinks she is one also. Sure hope it's O.K. to have a doggy on this site. Guess I should have put this on PDJ as GS featured Amber not long ago. Thanks again to GS.

Karen C. said...

Sorry Amber - knew I had heard the name, but I didn't look up the picture because I'm supposed to look like I'm working. I love doggies too (and I think I have a moment to sneak a look at your picture right after posting this). Get well!

Kim said...

Now Monica, you know what Kat would say about that!!! We talk about her Sammie at times. Sammie is her dog! And I remember Amber from GS site. She's still part of our kitty family!

Karen C. said...

Okay - I'm back from the archives. I sure do remember Amber, I just didn't remember her name. That happens to me a lot!

casper's mom (Monica) said...

That's O.K. Karen I do the same. Can't remember names worth a darn. All of you are so great. It's nice to be with such a great fuzz pack.

casper's mom (Monica) said...

Oooops, got to say Amber's Mom too!!

Gheeri's Servant said...

ugh. *really depressed* If any of you guys can't stand MORE bad news, DO NOT go to my site. I had to get away from my own commenting, so I'll just be over here, thankyouverymuch. *sits in corner and hides*

Deb said...

Hello to everyone! Caspar's Mom: My cat "Sam" has had several severe bladder infections, with the symptoms you mentioned. He went on antibiotics and was fine in a few days. He even took his pills like a champ! So, Amber (even though she is not a feline) will hopefully have the same happy result. All ten cats in my house send good thoughts your way. Actually, I have decided that Pete & Foster should be adopted together, since they are so strongly bonded. I won't be moving until late July and I need forever homes for them before that. So, officially, only Brutus & Marigold have forever homes. Still working on the others. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE! Get well Amber & Jake, we are praying for you both!

Rose said...

Hi Everyone! Yeah, today is "have a day" day...I just learned my best friend David is moving at the end of June...had an inkling, and that alone cut my heart in half, but to have it confirmed, well...::sniff::sniff::

HOWEVER!! For My Marigold and Brutus to have a sibling in Richmond, VA is AWESOME!! Any choices yet?? I'll bet...Pete!
No, Foster's too handsome, but Pete
is too and--uhh--poor Kathy from VA has a hard choice to make!! Oh, there ARE "Good Things", trick is to learn how to negotiate your way around the B** things (It doesn't deserve to be spelled out today, so there!)

I've been "shopping" on the Petco, Petsmart, and other pet supply sites for a "kitty condo" (?) I always wanted to get Emily one, but in my other apartment there was really no place to put it for her to enjoy it, you know, by looking out the windows...well, my apartment now has a nice courtyard/garden scheme outside the front and there's a HUGE terrace door, that I can't keep open now because Emily taught herself how to open the screen! I take her out now every morning at about 8, that's when I have my coffee, and if I'm late GOD HELP MY EARS!! She even knows how the front door works, she'll sit on my oversized T.V. Throne, and put 1 paw on the doorknob, the other paw stretches up to the deadbolt (!) Then she looks up at the third bolt-y thing and probably wonders how the heck her biped figures out how to open the door!
BUT I DIGRESS!!! (...as usual...)
Back to the Kitty Kondo... My livingroom has my Throne, a loveseat, the T.V. and nothing much else. A Kitty Kondo would look Great! But I can imagine Emily trying to race Marigold and Brutus to the top so she can finally look over the shrubs at the entire lawn and dream of Olymipc Cat Events, like Bird Vollyball, and Butterly Baseball!

David doesn't know it yet, but as Emily's Godfather, I'm going to ask him to take me to Newark Airport to pick "Mari and Bru" up.(I don't know what-if any nicknames I'll have for them!) If he has the time to take me (June's gonna fly by for him...and me...) I'll ask if he can bring his camera, or maybe he can use the camera on his phone, I dunno, but it would be cool to have World Traveler shots of my babes at the airport! Those two FuZZbabies have a purpose in my life - to enrich it all the more, and to serve as a balm... I can't really believe Emily and I are going to have Fuzzbabies!!!! Thank you again and again and again Deb! And ML and everyone who guided us to this adventure! As always, my prayers and thoughts are with all of you; you Are, in all sincerity,
My Family, as I don't have one of my own. (I'm estranged from my brothers that I've mentioned before - haven't spoken to them since 1991 - When I became ill, they didn't want any financial obligations to land in their lap resulting to being my next of kin, so be it!)

This too, shall pass, and really, I TRULY believe there is a God - a Supreme Being - that never gives us anything we can't handle. On the e-card David sent me today, it says "Some days, one guardian angel just isn't enough. Fortunately, you have a whole team!"
(still wanna smack him upside his head, but we're going for Thai tomorrow, so I'll wait...)

Love You All, My Fuzz Family!!!

Ella's Mom said...

Hi everyone,

I am so sorry to hear about all of the difficulties that everyone is going through right now. Ella and I are sending up positive thoughts and prayers for all of you that your furrbabies (and you) will be fine. *Hugs to the fuzz pack*

Emma's Kat said...

Rose, You are so great! And I LOVE Thai food!! Can't wait till your babies get to you! You'll have so much fun! We say that all the time, that God will never give you anything you can't handle! Sometimes you may think you can't handle it, but you do and life goes on! I'm sorry you friend is leaving...sucks! But you'll make it!

GS, this has been an all around ruff day! Things will turn around though! Like I said on PDJ, what comes around goes around.

Much love to my Fuzz FAmily! Peace Out!! lol...::sigh::

Emma's Kat said...

BTW, Did Jan say she was going out of town? I can't for the life of me remember!! Just know she's been MIA!

Kim said...

OK, Now we HAVE to have a Fuzz Family get together. So what do you all think, 2007, 2008? It will be in Missouri and the Big Cedar Lodge. That is the middle of the country and not so no one has to cross the continent. Now those out of the country, we'll work on that, we have time! This is going to sound cheesy but we all need a group hug! AND, we'll have t shirts made that say something silly like "Fuzz Pack Attack af 200...!" Or "The Fur will fly when the Fuzz get together" LOL, you get the idea. I'm more determind than ever for all of us to meet!!!!

Deb said...

Rose: I will be working more on weaning this weekend. Brutus & Marigold are excited about their upcoming flight. I will check with the vet before making arrangements. I'll be sending you some new pics soon. Much love and meows to the Fuzz Pack and their "owners"!

Rose said...

Hey Guys...I just told the Kittenmaster off...I am SO SICK of this evil v. good james thing I can spit! I challenged him: if he IS "reading all the entries", then why are those disgusting comments still on the post from Monday?? The NEW fellow, Charles, (is it?) sounds wonderful, and it must be very hard to be without a fuzzbaby after having multiples all his life, he must be lonely. Hope he has a good time visiting TDK, he made a connection with a lot of people today. But I'm finished with TDK...

Rose said...

But I never had Thai Food! David will be ordering and it BETTER BE GOOD!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Casper's Mom - My mini poodle, Bear, is 16.5 years old. She has had similar bladder infections. In fact, it got so bad for a while she couldn't control her bladder at all, peed on the bed. She also bites at those age bumps and they bleed.

But we have Amber and Jake in our prayers and thoughts today.

Rose, just buy a disposable camera with a flash to use. You can drop it off at Walmart and ask the pictures be developed digitially with or without prints. You can ask to have the digital pictures available online -- much faster than waiting for the disc & prints -- so you can email them to Fuzz Pack or give Fuzz Pack a URL where we can happily view your photos. But you must, MUST, take photos of Emily as well. And the airport arrival. Please. In fact, if you will email me your address, I will see to it that you get a couple of cameras, okay? I was already thinking about sending a couple with the kittens, but would really like to see Emily and the arrival.

Emma's Kat said...

LOL! You go Rose! I'm kinda over TDK too. I have respect, only because my site and you guys would not be what it is had I never gone to TDK. But...I too am just sick of the James thing. Yeah, and the KM was really good about deleting the comments and now nothing. He doesn't delete any of them. But you know, he's probably banking on, if we ignore him he'll go away. I'm sure the KM is sick of him too. But, I understand you going off on him. It's been a stressful day and we don't feel like putting up w/James!! I'm going to read comments at TDK now!

Deb said...

I agree with ML. Rose, we will talk about pictures and other stuff. I would also like to help with the vet bills for spaying & neutering. This process is very important for the kittens' health. I'll give you a call tomorrow. Been suffering with a migraine today. Not much done!

Rose said...

Hey Kim! I'm in 100% agreement about the Fuzz Family get together!
I looked up the Lodge, it sounds beautiful, I agree we have time to plan for everyone to come, and Love the t-shirts!
IlikeitIlikeitIlikeit!!!!

Kim said...

Hi Rose! I read your comment to the KM a while ago. I thought he would have at least responed too you but he hasn't. You know, he use to be so one the ball about his site. Now it's as if he really doesn't care. This whole business of "James is welcome as long as he plays nice" is a load of BS. He's not playing nice and nothing is happening. It's quite sad really. Like Kat said, TDK brought us together.

Chester sounds so sad, but he also sounds like such a wonderful person. Hopefully he'll find his way here. I did have some great comments today, he sounds sincere!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Oh Kim, just read your idea. Love it, love it, love it. And the T-shirt is great, but I want one NOW!
Love the lodge, haven't looked it up, but know it would be great. I might choose to drive, and if so, could probably arrange to pick up others enroute?

Rose, do send me your address and I will get cameras and developing vouchers out to you ASAP. The Fuzz Pack has waiting long enough to see Emily and we cannot, will not miss the arrival of Marigold and Brutus. My email is on my link.

Any other Fuzz Pack-ers considering the adoption of "The Double Trouble Twins", Foster & Pete? Think about it!!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Well, I meant ***waited*** long enough to see Emily....! Honest, I am a writer! You sure can't tell, ha-ha.

I agree about TDK and those stupid comments. I am very grateful to TDK because it resulted in Kat's. Don't know if PDJ started then, cause I found it because of Kat's. Immediately Kats and PDJ became my favorites. Maybe we just outgrew TDK?

Karen C. said...

I'm too distracted to work today with all this going on. I have an idea I've been considering and I thought I'd mention it quickly and get some feedback. I'd like to start a non-profit, tax deductable charity to help homeless kitties. I have lots of information, plus my best friend has set up a non-profit and is giving me advice. I want to be able to have funds to spay/neuter, provide shots and medical care, and find homes for any homeless kitties that Fuzz Pack members find/rescue. Because we're all scattered across the country (and beyond) there would be no specific rescue "site" at this time. It would be an organization to fund Fuzz Pack efforts to help these kitties in need. Right now I would really appreciate feedback, ideas, input, and any comments you might have. Soon I'll be needing a Mission Statement and a Board of Directors too. Feel free to e-mail me anything you have to say...kch917@sbcglobal.net Thank you!

loa said...

to all u cat lovers i hope tomorrow will have better news and a brighter day Hey kim i am w/u about the T-shirts god bless u all

Rose said...

ML, I've just e-mailed you an epistle, as that is the on;y thing I CAN write...I write like I speak, so brace yourselves for our FuZZ Family Meeting!!
Oh, didn't want to tip any hats, but I sent Kim1 a "Sneak Peek" of Emily when she was about 8 weeks old...So The IS an Emily, but I gotcha...Grown Up Emily is eager to make her internet modeling debut,too!
I actually just posted an apology on TDK...I STILL think the Kittenmaster needs to do something more to keep his site "clean" and enjoyable for his audience, and if I were him, I'd be embarrassed if I had to have comments pointed out to me DAYS later... but I didn't want to chase "good James" off the site, so I did what I felt I needed to do, and left it at that...Kathy in VA made it sound like I was being too overly sensitive...I am, always have been and am PROUD of it, because it's to d***** EASY to be the other way 'round!!

Karen, your idea is FANTASTIC!! When I adopted Emily, a non-profit gave me a voucher for her shots and spay because I am on Medicaid and a fixed income. I've called them in regards to the program this year, since it seems to depend largely on A certain "Benefactor". It at least provides spay/neuter and 1st rabies/distemper shots at a cost of 35.00 to 45.00 for cats, more for dogs, depending on size. I'll e-mail you their phone number, who to speak to, and if they have a website, ok?
And LASTLY, my greetings to Zoiee - loving the boat shot, with the driver's side pic, it looks like Zoiee was a TravelFuZZ! Please, don't blame yourself for her passing, Marnie...Looks like she was loved very much, got to go fishing,...such a sweet puss knew how much love ws coming at her, and as it was said before, it's just sometimes they sense it's time...hurts NO LESS, but putting a name to it and placing blame on yourself is too negative an energy.
Come here, to Kat's site and talk to all of us, we're good listeners with broad shoulders!
Prayers for Amber and Jake, from Emily and me.

Kim said...

Rose, I think you mean you sent a sneak peak to Kat!. I was happy that I was to get a pic of Emily. Then reality set in and I realized you meant our own Kat Master! LOL! OH WELL, guess I have to wait like everyone else! :) I'm excited though so hurry up!

T SHIRT ISSUE, do we want to do one before or at the time of our meeting?

HEY!!! BRAINSTORM!!! KAREN!!! What if we could find out how to sell merchandise for this site or something that we creat for the purpose, and use the profits to fund your cause?

riquel said...

I like the idea of all of us Fuzz Packers getting together next year, me and my mom Loa will definitly come for sure! I also like the idea of picking up Fuzz Packers on the way...and dang it I too want a Fuzz Pack T-shirt now! As far as TDK goes, I only look at the picture, I quit reading the comments, people are just to rude and a little weird.
I too like the idea of a NPO for kitties, I don't know what I could do to help, but I will, just let me know what you need or want!
Prayers to everyone and their fur babies, it has just been a crappy day all the way around. Better luck tomorrow!

Deb said...

Count me in on the non-profit organization. I have vast fund raising experience! What a great idea! Grace & Company greatly approve. Rose, they send "meows" to you!

Karen C. said...

Kim - Absolutely excellent idea! I can market, if you can make it. My dad designs web sites and is an extreme animal lover. He doesn't know it yet, but he's about to be in on this too.

Karen C. said...

And thank you Rose, Riquel and Deb! There will certainly be lots of jobs for all of your talents to be put to use - all for the benefit of homeless fuzz. YAY!

Karen, do you ever IM? Maybe we can chat sometime and come up with exactly what we want. You can also email me at triskart@cox.net or triskart@hotmail.com. I have a Yahoo address too, Yahoo is who IM through. If anyone else has ideas, the same goes for you. In case you're wondering, my address for yahoo is triskart@yahoo.com.(bet you didn't see that one coming! LOL)

Kim, I wanna T-shirt now!!!

Karen C -- that is a great idea. Count me in, too. I don't have any website design experience (just troubleshooting specific problems), but I do know computers. I have some contacts, too. And I'll do whatever to help as well.

It's been a bad day, and then GS's situation just made it awful. Think that's what tipped Karen C. to post this great idea.

Prayers to Jake and Amber and please keep us posted...

I want a t-shirt too! And, thanks ML! Kim - I do IM with yahoo. I'll add you. Going home now - should be there in about an hour to an hour and a half...

I too think a NPO would be great and will help in whatever way I can as well! Just a thought...I've been to a few websites where they have a PayPal icon and you can donate thru PayPal. I'm not sure how it works, but I can try an find out about it.

Kat, I sell and buy on ebay and have PayPal account. It's very easy to set up, links to a bank account or credit card. Very safe to use. I have been using since it came out and had no problems with it. It is becoming more prominent on line for purchases, donations, etc. Just go to www.paypal.com. I'll help any way I can. The person buying never pays a fee; the seller pays a small percentage as a fee.

Kat - excellent idea re: Paypal. I use them for ebay, and the rescue group that I know (kittenrescue.org) has a paypal link for donations. I know the kitten rescue president and will ask him how he set that part up. (I was in his home once, dropping off two babies, and counted the cats in his living room - 22!) My dad has agreed to obtain, design and set up the website. We need a name...thoughts?

How about the Fuzz Pack Rescue Group, or something like that?

Or "Fuzz Pack to the Rescue!"

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

Fuzz Pack to the Rescue sounds great! I will help any way I can.

Yes, Kat, here I am. Sorry, it's been...life.

Purrs, Huggles and and prayers going up for Danni & Jake, Monica and Amber.

Karen C. said...

That's cute Riquel. The website could be fuzzpack.org or something like that. Actually, I just checked and fuzzpack.org doesn't seem to be take....

Rose said...

fuzzpack.org has my vote, Karen!
And ANY assistance I can provide...

Karen C. said...

Where'd my "n" go on the end of "taken"? "Doesn't seem to be take" - yikes!
