Lending a Helping Paw

You might remember last week I had a poll so you could help me spend my moneys helping other cats? Well, the results were very, very close! 37% voted for me to buy treats for the shelter cats, and 34% voted for me to buy toys for the shelter cats. So, guess what? My Mommie agreed to match my moneys so I could do BOTH! Here are the toys and treats we got for the kitties at Cats Exclusive, a no-kill shelter for cats:
When my Mommie was at the shelter yesterday, she gave the toys and treats to the cats. Here are some photos! All of these kitties are waiting for their Forever homes.

First is the adorable Cheesecake. He got the gray mousie, and you can see he is hugging and squeezing it tightly. He loves toys! And here is Panda with another one of the toys. Panda has a sister named Amanda. They are both very sweet!
This is Miles. He's a big Mancat! My Mommie gave him a Squeaky Mouse, because it's one of Harley's favorite toys. Miles is front declawed, and he is one of the gentlest cats around.
This is Princess. She is enjoying some of the delicious Temptations in her hammock. Eating in bed is a special treat.
Snowball is funny! He likes Temptations, too.
Next it is Jo Jo's turn for some treats. She is very gentle, and she loves people. Her friend Jack is in the background waiting his turn! My Mommie thinks he has a very adorable face.
And now it is Jack's turn for treats. Montey is waiting right behind Jack.
And last, but not least, is Black Jack! He's the manliest of Mancats. His friends call him BJ. You can see he already ate his pile of Temptations, and nothing is left but the crumbs!

What a nice idea to take pictures of the different cats with their new toys and enjoying their treats! They all look very nice and I sure hope they get good homes soon!

Karen Jo said...

It was great of your Mom to match your moneys so you could get both treats and toys for the shelter kitties. I hope that they all get forever homes soon.

Forever Foster said...

Thankyou for introducing us to some of your mum's friends. They all look lovely, and we will purr very hard for them to find their Forever homes.

Misha said...

What lovely kittehs! I think they really appreciated your presents, Daisy!

gemmak said...

I love all the shelter cats Daisy and it was so kind of you and your mommie to treat them all to special gifts. I wish I could be a forever home for one of those little guys.

PDX pride said...

That's wonderful that you were able to get both! We love the picture of Snowball and his mousie. :)

Poppy Q said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh Daisy, you are the most caring cat around. Thanks for letting your mommy take the treats and toys to those beautiful kitties. We hope they all find special homes, where they can get lots of love and treats and toys every day.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Yay for the shelter kitties! You and your Mommie were so very thoughtful to buy treats and toys for the kitties. Cheesecake is extra adorable with that mousie!

Mom was talking to our Vet about No Kill shelters last week when Whitey was there. The closest No Kill shelter from us is more than 2 hours away. That is Very Bad News for too many stray and feral kitties in our area.

Alasandra said...

Oh we are so glad the cats were able to get toys and treats. All of them look so happy, we hopes they find forever homes. ~S,S,C & F

The Creek Cats said...

Bless heart! We can see you really made those kitties very happy with the new toys and treats, Daisy! Great work!

arbed and edgar said...

Wow, so not only did you get toys AND treats, but with your Mommie's help you got double the amount! You guys are so kind and thoughtful - I know those adorable kitties appreciated everything very much!

In my office last Christmas, I did a food bank drive as well as a drive for a local SPCA. While we did get a lot of good stuff for the shelter, I had been hoping for more because I know they need so much! I think I will try again in the fall.

Jocelyn said...

Thanks for helping Daisy. We are hoping to get a shelter cat soon. Junior and I have to work on Daddy a little harder but I think he's starting to see the light!

Furkidsmom said...

We think that was super nice of you (and your Mom) to buy treats and toys for the shelter cats. Thanks for introducing us to them, we hope they get forever homes soon.

Puffie said...

Those kitties are SO cute. My Mom wishes she could adopt all of them. But we already have 5 kitties in the house and for some reason the town we live in says that's all we can have. Thats a stupid rule, if you ask me.

Kitties @ Our family cat-a-blog... said...

Daisy, what a good an' purr-ecious kitty youz is ta dose who are less furr-tunate den youz. We came frum da shelterz when we was little kittenz an' our momma still goes dere ta hold an' ♥ da kittiez dat she can't takez home. She would yike dem all but she thinkz dat 50 would be too much fer da size of our house.

The Meezers said...

oh oh oh oh mommy is going SQUEEEEEEEEEEE all ofur the place and saying "i want cheesecake!!!" she keeps staring at him and his wonderful smile.

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

What wonderful cats all, and how wonderful that you brought some more joy into their lives!

Tuck said...

What sweet kitties! My mom says she wishes she could bring each one of them home to live with us.

Tybalt said...

How wonderful! All of those kitties look like they would be purrfect at saving some bean who needs love. I've got my paws crossed that they find a bean to adopt soon!

Ramses said...

Oh what a nice Mommy you have Daisy, I'm so glad that she and you bought toys and treats for the shelter kitties! :)

Oi, ouch, ok already... Setra says I have to tell you that Gimpet Baby Tabs are the bestest most yummy tasty treats ever and she can have 8 every day! Ok, now that's done apparently I can have my tail back! ;)

Purrs,

Grace said...

Wow, they are all such beautiful kitties. I'm betting they just loved all the goodies. You and your Mom are just great.

Maureen said...

Oh, what a wonderful thing to do... you are good people and cats with huge hearts!

I love all the photos and want to take all of them home with me! I know I can't so my wish is that each and every one finds a wonderful home like you have.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Angel said...

That was so nice ans we enjoyed seeing the kitties getting their gifts.

catsynth said...

That is such a wonderful thing to do for the shelter cats. Not only generously bringing them treats and toys, but then letting us see some of them enjoying them. We hope all these cats find homes soon!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That is great! How wonderful of your person to match that money so that you could do even more!

Janet said...

Awww, Daisy, this makes me feel so good to see the happiness you and your mommie brought to these kitties! I hope they all find forever homes very soon.

The Devil Dog said...

We bet those toys and treats made the day for those kitties. It was nice that your mom helped you out. We hope all those kitties find forever home soon.

Pricilla said...

Daisy you and your mommie are so generous. The publicist now wants to adopt all of those cats. She is always sad when she sees cats without forever homes. But given that there are 7 goats, 3 cats and 52 chickens here. Plus the three stray cats she feeds it's a crowded Farm.

I am very proud of you for spending your moneys that way!

Tristan and Crikey said...

We're happy because we voted for the treats! Thank you soooo much for introducing us to the kitties at the shelter. We love your sweet caring heart, and we think that your Mom is very special too:)

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

That was so great you got to do both!! Thanks for sharing the pictures of them enjoying. My favorite is Cheesecake. Love the name, and I think we would have fun playing together.

Junior and Orion said...

Oh goodness Daisy! That is so sweet of both you and your Mom! We love the pictures! Meowm wants all those babies! If only we had a bigger place and lots of money!!!

Miss Amy said...

Daisy - you are such a nice cat to donate your monies to the shelter cats! I wish I lived in Florida so I could meet these lucky ones in person. Cheesecake and Jack are so cute!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh Daisy, yoor mom is so sweet to match yoor moneys so dat da kitties can haf toys and treats. We just love dat piksher of Cheesecake wif her little "teddy mouse". It really shows how much da shelter kitties apreeshiate even a little thing like a toy of der own. We purray dat all dem kitties find der forever homes soon.

Cat with a garden said...

Great news that your mom doubled the monies you could spend, Daisy! You got really cool stuff for the kitties. It made us very happy to see that your presents made them happy. Great idea!

The Monkeys said...

You and your Mom are awesome for helping out at the shelter, Daisy! They're all so cute.

Split Rock Ranch said...

Daisy, thank you so much for sharing all those fabulous photos of your mommy's visit to the shelter. It looks like all the cats really enjoyed the treats and toys. You're such a wonderful girl for sharing the love and your mommy with them!

Max said...

Awww...the Woman and I both REALLY like the picture of Cheesecake hugging his new toy. That's so cute that even I can't be snarky about it.

I hope all those kitties find good forever homes soon.

Colby and Cheddar said...

Well, Daisy, now you've done it. You made our Mom cry.

It's okay, she's crying because she just loves seeing happy kittehs.

She is forbidden to go to the shelter for a little while, cause Mom always wants to bring all da kittehs home with her. Can you believe there are three of us now, and Dad wasn't even sure he wanted even ONE kitteh? Mom sure showed him the error of his ways.

You are a very sweet and thoughtful girl to bring so much happiness to those shelter kitties, Daisy. Bless you.

Your Daily Cute said...

Daisy, that was so nice of you and your mommy to give the cats at Cats Exclusive some treats and toys!

I just had a parking lot kitty I feed her at work spayed over there... they are such nice people! I released her this morning and everything is all good. So happy she's back home -- and happy all these cats got their goodies!

The Furry Kids said...

Thank you for sharing these pics!

Amy said...

Daisy it was so good of you and your mom to think of getting stuff for those shelter kitties. I hope they find homes soon. They are all adorable - I wish I could take them all myself! We have a few no kill shelters around here, one where we got Floyd at more than 13 years ago - we try to support them as much as possible.

Sunny's Mommy said...

That is a good thing you did, Daisy :-) I hope all of those kitties will find their forever homes soon! And all the other kitties in the shelter, too!

I think you made these kitties very happy Daisykins

What a kind thing to do. You can see how much those kitties loved the treats and toys.

I hope they all find happy furever homes soon with responsible and loving owners.

They are all so lovely, it makes me sad to think they are still waiting for furever homes.

That was great! I bet it felt like Christmas in there!

Lorianna said...

I loved seeing all those adorable kitties Daisy! I am so happy that they enjoyed their toys and treats. You and your Mommie are just wonderful to do that for them. We need more no "you know what" shelters in every state.
Maybe after seeing these kitties, someone who lives nearby will adopt one or two.
Have a happy evening!
Hugs,
Lorianna

A Few Good Cats said...

That was a solution worthy of King Solomon, Daisy. Let the cats at Cats Exclusive have *both* toys and treats. We can see they all deserve as many good things as they can get!

Daisy, you and your mommy are doing such a great thing for all our anipals! We're really proud of your efforts!

Milo and Alfie said...

Every single one of those kitties is adorable - we are so glad they are in a rescue place with a "no kill" policy. It would break our hearts to think the worst could happen.

We hope they ALL find wonderful forever homes. Thank you for being so generous Daisy and Harley.

Siani said...

If I lived near you, I would adopt Black Jack. I have a soft spot for big, chunky, black and white Mancats. I used to live with one called Noddy, but he went to the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago.

Lois Grebowski said...

Cute kitties. Looks like they enjoyed their surprises. How fun!

JD at I Do Things said...

Oh, my gosh. I love them all. Daisy, I know your Mommie works very hard with you and Harley to get you to pose real pretty, but how does she do it with all those shelter cats, too???

I want to snorgle them all! Don't you think that Jack looks like Little Isis?

Dream Mom said...

Oh, that was so thoughtful of you. I love the look of Cheesecake with his new toy. It is sad too that they don't have a "forever" home. All of the kitties deserve one.

What a great thing you did!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

What a wonderful thing to do with your money, Daisy. And nice of your mom to match your donation. It looks like they all enjoyed their treats and toys.

Maria said...

This is SOOOOOOOO nice! You've inspired me to go help out at our local SPCA. I recently donated a necklace for them to raffle, but thought it would make me too sad. I see from your post, that will nt be the case. THANKS for keeping up w/ Coco :)
