Wordless Wednesday: A special cat Christmas present for a special cat

Sinead the Boston terrier checking out a cat bed
If you asked Sinead the Boston terrier to describe what a cat is and what a cat should do, she'd probably start talking about something like this.

Maggie the senior cat in her favorite bed
Both Sinead and Maggie the cat are firm believers that all cats should have ample food, warm beds and plenty of grooming. Come to think of it, I believe all of that stuff, too. So we're all heartbroken about this pretty kitty.
Senior cat Dolores is very thin
This is Dolores, and she's waiting for a home at Willamette Humane Society in Salem, Oregon. She was found as a stray, and she's incredibly thin. She's loving and sweet and kind, but it's clear that her life has been very hard.

We all wanted to help. I donated some green stuff, and then we put our heads together to come up with a donation that would be meaningful to Dolores as she waits for her home.
Liam Sinead and Maggie check out cat food
I got some cat food, and Liam, Sinead and Maggie all made sure it was approved for donation. (Maggie is being pretty low-key about her involvement.)

Maggie and Sinead agreed that this was a fine donation. So then we moved on to bedding. That had to be inspected, too.

Finally, everything was signed off and ready to go. Sinead gave her seal of approval first.

And Maggie went back to bed.

Tomorrow, we'll head to the shelter to deliver the goodies to Dolores. She's been waiting for a home for a little more than a week, and I'd love to see her go soon. Should you feel inspired, my blog entry about her on the WHS website is here. Love to see it shared.

Thanks for looking! And do visit the other blogs in the BlogPaws hop this week. Good stuff!


  1. How wonderful of you to make sure Dolores has a fully belly while she is waiting for her forever home.

    1. Thanks! It's nice to do something for a beautiful cat on a beautiful holiday.

  2. Oh my goodness, bless her heart. The look in her eyes breaks my heart. It is so wonderful that you are helping her out with food and a new bed. I hope that she gets a loving home and her eyes will fill with happiness. Have a very merry Christmas, my friends. ♥

    1. You and I have the same reaction to her sweet face. Gah. She was really thrilled to get that bed today, and we're all crossing fingers she'll go home (in it!) very soon.

  3. I hope Dolores finds a forever home soon and I'm sure she will appreciate your gifts. Have a Merry Christmas filled with love and peace!
