Three years ago today we lost Dash Kitten
Our founder Cat was taken from us in a dog attack just as our blog, our dreams of bringing joy to our friends, and helping other cats, began to take flight. The support we got from our social media friends was immense and total – it kept us in one piece when we felt abandoned locally.
Our sweet friend, the late @NikePurrfectCat and her mum launched a fundraiser on You Caring that reached an unbelievable $600 ($720NZ approx at the time). This was an astonishing and loving tribute to Dash. Then thanks to friend Teri, @InQuarters14, we received notice that the great @Sockington himself had given Dash a shout out on Twitter. Dash inspired so many – and we are grateful for the support and love he inspired.
Dash Kitten – Bootsie, and the Momma Kat Hope Chest
Dash’s wish to help cats worldwide continues via the blog.
The All Ears for Bootsie auction was the first we were involved with after Dash passed away. The support for that was generous and heartfelt from donors, and enthusiastic bidders alike. Sufficient funds were raised for Bootsie to receive specialist treatment and ease his ear pain – and he stayed with his original foster Jenna who is a rescue colleague of our friend Brian Fum.
Today we are involved in the search for a home for a special kitty, who you my already have come across in our sidebar, Momma Kat. Her astonishing and heroic battle to save her kittens despite traumatic injuries. Please read her rescue story! It will have you on your feet and cheering!
Dash Kitten helping the Hope Chest
Thanks to our Adventurcat buddy Savannah – a ‘Hope Chest’ is being assembled for Momma Kat, so that when she goes to her new home she has a lot of the things she will need to start her new life in her forever home. If you can help with any of the items comment here on the blog, or comment at Savannah’s blog. Mark your comment HOPE CHEST for clarity.
This is what we aim to find for this sweet girl, and any help of any gracious sponsors you can suggest will be warmly welcomed by the Hope Chest Team.
