Raising a paw for charity

Gaius asked fur kitties to raise a paw fur charity. I'm trying to do it fur IMOM. Dey help beans wif green papers for der vets so dey can fix sick kitties. Dey pay da green papers directly to da vet so der is no cheating. So, Mom, I'm ready to try now. How's this? Not high enuff! C'mon, yoo wake me up and ask me to rais my paw and den complain it's not high enuff! Well, let's try this over there in front of the closet doors den... Is this better? No, well go away then...yoor not going away are yoo?
Okay, one more... All right, it's not me. It's my best frend, Punkin, the one who came before. But, she has both paws raised so it should count fur something. Punkin got cancer and wifout IMOM she would have died two years sooner cuz der was no way mom and dad could afford da treatments.

Well, little Punkin sure got those paws up great. And what a great thing IMOM is. But you made a valiant effort.

ps: with 13 cats in the house, you'd think one of them would raise a paw, but noooooo.

Great effort! Hey, if you guys haven't visited Tigger the FBI cat's blog (http://tiggerthefbicat.blogspot.com) and watch the video clips, then hurry over and do it. It's absolutely hilarious. Just wonder if any of you would do that.

IMOM sounds like a great charity! Punkin was very cute raising both paws like that!

Zippy, I think you done good raising your paw! And you picked a very excellent cause, too.

Wow, the double paw raise facing forward. That's quite the accomplishment!
You get A+ for effort, and attitude, however.

I had no idea - I googled IMOM to find out about them and that got the maid all excited because it means that if something SERIOUSLY bad would happen to us we might not have to die...My staff are artists, they seem to have NO green papers to speak off...

I have been most uncooperative in this raising of a paw thing. Bean has not been able to get my picture with even my back paw in the air!

Wow! Look at Punkin go! She was a great paw raiser and I think this counts. IMOM must be a great group. Thanks for telling us about them!

Rascal said...

That is sad about Punkin, but wow what a good rollmodel she is to sraise up her paws like that.

Tyler said...

Zippy, I would never have known that that was Pumpkin and not you! You could have kept the secret. I think that IMOM is a wonderful wonderful charity. Maybe tomorrow I'll try to raise my paw for my mom's flashy box thingy. I'm so glad that Pumpkin was helped out by those wonderful beans.
