I am helping Pixie!!!

I am very excited today! My great friends Jake and Bathsheba sponsored a very fun contest. The winner is the 15th post on their 200th blog entry. And guess what? I WON! And the prize is a $50 donation to an animal charity of my choice, and a $25 gift card to Petsmart. Here I am telling Pixie the fantastic news! I decided the donation in my name should go to the Winn Feline Foundation. They are a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting health related studies about medical problems affecting cats. Winn's goals are to improve feline veterinary care and help us cats live longer and healthier lives!

Donations to Winn can be made to one of several funds, including a General Fund, the Bria Fund (for FIP research), Breed-related projects, Specific disease funds, and the Ricky Fund. The Ricky Fund is for studies related to feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). I asked to have the donation earmarked for the Ricky Fund!

As you might know, my big sister Pixie has a very advanced case of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. I am very proud to be able to help support research on this terrible disease. And I am very grateful to my friends Jake and Bathsheba for this chance to help cats like Pixie who have HCM. I think Pixie is smiling (on the inside.)
And now I am off for my shopping spree!
Thank you very much Jake and Bathsheba!
