Spring break on #PussyCatIsland!

The boy kid was off for spring break this past week, so mama took the week off from work & papa took a couple days off too. And boy did we have a busy week! I started my own blog, I ate lots of cookies, I took lots of naps, I tweeted with my anipals, I relaxed with the boy kid, I went outside & inside & outside & inside & outside & inside, then I ate more cookies, then I took more naps. It was a fabulous week!

But the most exciting part of my week was attending a wild party with all my twitter anipals on #pussycatisland. It was 24 hours of non-stop action planned by my pals @babypatches, @rumblepurr, and @petiethecat. Twitter animals donned their best island gear (check out the swimsuits mama found for us!) to gather for games with awesome prizes, dancing to cool tunes from DJs, and drinks from a famous bartender ( was me!).

In exchange for the barkaritas, catsmopolitanas, barktinis, meowmosas, and pina cataladas I served up, my twitter pals dropped tips in a jar to support Orphans of the Storm. Orphans of the Storm is one of the largest & oldest shelters in the country, and it holds a special place in my heart. Orphans took wonderful care of me before I found my forever home with papa & mama.
All told, 70 partying twitterers donated a combined $1050 to help the kitties & doggies at Orphans of the Storm. Donations came in from animal lovers as well as critters of all types - dogs, cats, bunnies, gerbils, and even a capybara!

Many, many thanks to all my generous twitter pals for helping me exceed my goal of raising $1000 to help Orphans of the Storm. You all are the greatest! If you haven't donated yet, it's not too late! Just visit my fundraising page:

p.s. can't wait for the next twitter party! But I need a little time to recover from this one first.
