Mancat Monday - Charity Auction & Vale, Caesar

It's Gypsy here, in a reflective mood...This is a picture of me sitting on the driveway at my place.

I could be looking out to see what I can do for the Foreclosure Cats from Cincinnati, Ohio. The full details of the over 60 abandoned cats can be found at the website. There are still about 20 left waiting to be adopted. Part of the fundraising towards their care has been done by having an Art Fundraiser Auction on Ebay. Here is a link to the auction. Alternatively, you can use the advance search on eBay and input "Foreclosure Cats". There is about 2.5 days left to run on all of these auctions. Here is a quote from the website explaining how these artworks were created: "The Foreclosure Cats Project artwork celebrates the beautiful, individual spirit of each precious cat, and a huge debt of thanks is owed to the talented artists from around the country who donated their fantastic representations of these creatures to raise funds for their continued support and care." If there's anything there that takes your fancy, then remember that the proceeds will go to a very worthy cause.

Given my own advancing years, I could also be reflecting on the legacy of that magnificient almost 17 year old "Tuxie Tiger", Caesar. While I didn't know him personally, it's evident that he was greatly loved, and will be missed by his littermate Princess and his human family.

Willow and I were so sorry to hear yesterday that Caesar had gone to the Bridge. It's nice to see so many wonderful tributes, like yours, up for Caesar today.

I'm going to go see the Foreclosure Cat's Art. Thanks for letting us know.

Purrrrrrs, China Cat

That is a lovely picture of you. You are quite a handsome mancat. I am sorry to hear about Ceasar. I did not know him, but it is always sad when one of us goes to the rainbow bridge. I will check out the auction. Thank you for the information.

We made a small donation to the Foreclosure Cats. We hope they all find Forever Homes.

We are so sad that Caesar has gone to the Bridge. Our eyes are leaking and our hearts are breaking for his family. He will be missed.

I never knew about the Foreclosure Cats before. The story about little Piccolo was heartbreaking.

Mom thinks you're a very handsome Mancat. Sorry, but I'm a guy so I can't comment on that.
