Mancat Monday – Thanks for helping our Christchurch Friends

mm02282010

I had mentioned that some incredible Twitter pals, especially Mario from Mario’s Meowsings and our sweet pal Rumblebum, were really going all out to organize a fund raising pawty on Twitter for the Christchurch SPCA.  As you know, this section of New Zealand was recently devastated by a major earthquake. 

Our Anipals went to work and Saturday evening the fund raising pawty took place on Twitter using the hashtag #NipClubNZEQ.  #NipClub is a gathering place for Anipals and is constantly organizing fund raising events to help groups and organizations in need.

The music was fantastic and the snacks and treats were extraordinary, and the barktending staff served up some of the best NipTinis I’ve ever had.  Our pal Rumblebum even set up a Smoochie Booth to raise money for this cause.  Oh no, I didn’t smoochie Rumbles, but my sisters all waited in line for hours to get a smooch for the cause.

Late in the evening Rumbles was really, really hoping to top the $2000 mark.  Thanks Anipals, you did it!!!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
