Purrs 4 Peace Week 19:Thank you

This week has been about loving our friends and family members through sending healing energy to them when they are ill and also sending them comfort when they are grieving.Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

This week, therefore, it is fitting to send special thanks to @Smokey8 a loving and compassionate friend and participant in the purrs. I’m sure any who have read my blog posts on the purrs 4 peace project over the last weeks have noticed the thoughtful comments by @Smokey8. These comments offer a unique perspective bringing further insight into our issues. This sweet kitty lives with his equally sweet mom Tessie in Miami, Florida (See the adorable photo above). Smokey says: “She owns the home, I rule the home” @Smokey8 has a brother named Sweetiepie who was adopted after his other human family was murdered. It takes a specially compassionate and loving home to make an animal feel safe after such a trauma. Thank you @Smokey8 and Tessie for the love you have in your home, the love you share with your friends, and the love you help spread in the world through your invaluable contribution to the purrs.

Thank you to every purrticipant. It has been impossible to keep track of everyone purrticipating from week to week. Therefore, I am including all those who have assisted with this project and will add newcomers from week to week. Thank you one and all!

Even though we haven't commented before, we have been purring and praying with you. Thank you for giving us all a place to meet.

This week we are purring especially for Captain Casper's sisterbean, who is fighting breast cancer. She, her dear Mom and their family are all in our prayers as well.

Love and purrs from Meowmepurr, Smokey and Old Mumma Jan in Washington State, USA
