WOOHOO!: My Twitter and FB friends are STARS!

Confucius Cat says: friendship is like go bask in some friendship today.

What a fantastic weekend. So many twitter friends helped mummy raise money for a fabulous animal shelter through the sales of her new novel ENTANGLEMENTS. She sold 57 ebooks at 99 cents each. That comes to $19.95 in author proceeds and with the match and mummy rounding up, she's donating $40 to the pawpawty charity. WOOHOO! 

On top of that, many friends said they had started the book and were enjoying it. Yay! Mum always loves to hear her work is worthwhile. Hopefully, the word will spread and even more people will enjoy the book. Then when she does a charity fundraiser with the next book, she'll be able to give even more. 

THANK YOU ALL! My friends are the best, most generous and compassionate in the world. *four paws hugging along with slobbery kitty kisses.*

Mum's giving money away. Please help!

My sister, Zuzu seems pretty comfortable in the center of the cat condo

As many of you know, Mummy's novel ENTANGLEMENTS, was just released as an ebook and is available at and for just $0.99. The low price is intended to allow all kinds of readers to give her work a try. 

The novel is about a teen who must enter a dangerous alternate dimension's world to save her stepsister. It just got a fantastic review from @MaggieTKat in the Anipal Times. Thank you dear Maggie!

Because Mummy really loves animals she's decided to donate all her author proceeds on purchases of Entanglements made in the 24 hours of October 15, 2011. AND SHE WILL MATCH ALL AUTHOR PROCEEDS UP TO $100.00. That means she just needs to sell 300 books on October 15, 2011 to make the maximum donation. This is were you come in. Please buy Entanglements on October 15th. 

The Amazon link is: 

The Barnes and Noble link is: BN Entanglements

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE AN E READER TO PARTICIPATE. has an applications that can be downloaded to PC, Mac and Smartphones. This is the link: Download  In addition, you can read a kindle book, without downloading anything, through your browser by choosing "cloud" once you purchase the book.

Please note that Amazon gives you the option to gift Entanglements to someone else by inputing their email address. If you want to gift the book to someone that would be wonderful. But for the sale to count the person gifted has to accept the gift on the 15th or Amazon won't reflect it as a sale and Mummy won't know about it.

The cause she will donate to is the charity supported by the next #pawpawty on Twitter hosted by our friend @Frugaldougal. From the website is the following description of the Animal shelter benefitted this month.

"This month’s PawPawty is being held to assist Camp Cocker which is located In Sherman Oaks California.

Their primary mission is to rescue dogs from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles region. There are more than thirty high kill shelters that are within a 125 mile radius of Los Angeles County. The amount of dogs in shelters are overwhelming. On any given day there can be between two and seven cockers PER shelter! We have a "worry list" that can have up to sixty cockers on it. These are the dogs in immediate danger of being put to sleep.

About the Founder
Founder Cathy Stanley had dabbled in animal rescue for over ten years – usually just one dog at a time.  There was the dog that was tied up to a tree and left by its owner.  There was the pair of dogs whose elderly owner passed away and the relatives were bringing them to the pound to be euthanized.  These dogs would either somehow find Cathy or she would find them." 

This sounds like a fantastic shelter. There is nothing closer to mummy's heart than saving homeless fur babies. So she wants to give away as much money as she can. 

I'll be posting updates all day on the 15 on this blog and on Twitter to let you know how we're doing. 

Woohoo! I can't wait.

Purrs 4 Peace - October 2011 - Thank You

My deepest thanks and appreciation go to my lovely friends, Lori Jacobus, her cats Chloe and Toby as well as her entire family. Lori and her cats who tweet on Twitter as @ChloeToby have been a godsend to the purrs. They continued on with purrs 4 peace while my family and I were away from twitter for some months. The kindness of their hearts and their generosity of spirit are an example to all. They have added a surge of love and peace into the universe that our world sorely needs.

Lori says that Chloe (The beauty in the bottom photo) came into our family at a stressful time, when they were losing their first cat, of 17 years, Kaz, to cancer. Chloe is very gentle and settled into the household by friending everyone. Chloe was about 6 months old by the time she found her forever home. Lori says that Chloe even brought happiness to Kaz bringing "some life to the old guy" for the six months before he passed away.

Toby (the handsome black cat in the top photo) is 3rd in the family's "brood of four". Lori says he came into the family as noisily as Chloe did gently. He, at about five weeks old, was up for adoption at a local Petsmart. They weren't looking for a kitten, until they got there on adoption day and heard Toby yelling and yelling. Lori says "I started looking at kittens. I saw him, he was tiny, being held in a washcloth. We kept looking around, but when he yelled, you could hear it through the whole store. And that was it. I wanted a cat that would talk, and he was yelling!"  

A big thank you nosebump and lotsa kitty kisses to Lori and family. You are all very much appreciated.
