Why an Auction for Rusty?

Rusty is a long-time established Twitter buddy of ours who we know and trust. A sweet cat and his mum, they were there for us when we lost Dash, and their kindness and joy have been an inspiration to us in times of trouble.

It takes a lot of courage sometimes to ask for help, especially when it is so easy to dismiss one person or cat’s troubles in the face of larger country-wide ones but Rusty’s friends were concerned and are doing what they can to help.

How we are helping the Auction for Rusty

The Dash Kitten Crew are still getting up to speed on details, but we believe Cheryl, Rusty’s mum does not even have a phone to stay in contact with friends, and access the immense love and support for Rusty on Twitter. So we are contributing to an auction currently on being shared on Twitter and hosted on Facebook.
