Here's skinny Gizzy. He doesn't look so manly in this picture, but that's because Mom was sticking the camera in his face and he doesn't like the flash. He's eating, and drinking, but not much. Mom's gonna call the vet and make sure he gets an appointment. Problem is, Mom hasn't got any of the green pieces of paper. So she's gonna try to make a deal.
Mom wondered if she could raffle a quilt as a fundraiser. She wrote to Skeezix cause he's one of the smartest cats in the blogosphere. He said it might be hard if she didn't have a quilt already made. (And she doesn't -- yet.) But he gave Mom an idea.
She is going to make some cat-sized quilts, out of pre-washed cotton, and fill them with nice warm fleece. They'll be about two feet square (of course that's not two of my feet or they'd be too small for anything), crazy patchwork on one side, and quilted a bit to hold the layers all together. Mom says they will be machine washable and dryable. She's gonna sell them and anycat in the blogosphere (or beans even) can buy them. We haven't worked out a price yet, but $25 sounds about right. And she would have to set up a paypal account or something. This way she could get the green pieces of paper to pay the vet costs and not stress out about it too much.
Here's a funky black and white one. She's working on a couple of pink ones, and has some others planned with all the colors in the rainbow.Cat bloggers, would you be interested?
