A strange week ahead....and donating to Colchester Cat Rescue

 Today it is 6 months since Scooter passed away. 

-And this coming Saturday, the 23rd, would have been his 20th birthday. So this will be a strange week....

I know that not all of you will get this, but some of you will, so here goes.
I want to ask if you would please light a candle -real or virtual- for Scooter and his kitty family, some time this week, especially on his birthday. I will make a donation to my local Cat Rescue for each candle lit.

This is the first March in 30 years that I haven't been carer of a cat. It would really help if you did this, as well as sending out a 'thank you' to all the kitties that have shared my life..... I will do another post next weekend, with a photo and short bio of each cat (all 7!).


-It only takes a minute....
If you follow this link you can light a virtual candle: Gratefulness.Org
You don't need to join anything, and you won't get junkmail; you're not asked to put in an email address.
When you input the info asked for, please type "Scoot" for group name. -This way all Scooter & Co's candles will be on one page to be seen together.
Each candle burns down gradually over 48 hours.

Next week I will send a donation to Colchester Cat Rescue in memory of all my pusscats. I already have a figure in mind, but I will add £1 to it for every candle lit.  So please leave a comment here if you light a candle, 

  • whether in the virtual candle website,  
  • or by copying + pasting the gif. at the top of this post to your blog,
  • or by lighting a real candle at home.
Thank you in advance, for all your kindness and support...

Love, tea & cake,

THANK YOU ALL! I'm writing all the messages you leave (here and on the virtual candle site) into a little notebook I'm making. At the end of the week I'll put it in the special little box of precious things from Scooter and his kitty family.

Our candles are burning bright for Scooter.
There is a virtual one on my blog, one on site and a real one nightly on our window sill.
Love & hugs to you
