We hope you find something you cannot live without...and if you can, please advertise this auction on your blog so that we have a lot of paw-traffic to help this wonderful rescue.  There are items for dogs, cats, and peeps.
 
Much Love,

PS:  The Pugs and Purrs are staying warm inside as we are being hit with a wintery blast of cold air...and a bit of precipitation. :)

Upcoming Auction to Help Winnie's Wish: We still need donations for the February 16th launch!!

Hi friends!
 
Our good friend Marg (don't you love her) is holding a special auction for Winnie's Wish.
 
Here is more information about Winnie's Wish as provided by Ann of Zoolatry (don't you love her, too), who is providing the time and talent for making the graphics for the auction:
 

Winnie's Wish is a private animal rescue and shelter--funded solely by donations and fundraising--and now is in great need of a new room to house the growing number of rescued cats. The new room will also allow for separation of the more timid cats from those that are more aggressive while all of the kitties wait for their forever homes.
Please consider donating auction items now!

 
Send your donated item information to: 
margaretmsan@gmail.com
Thank You!​

Just to "wet your appetite" here are just a few of the items that you WILL see at the auction:
 
A squirrel nutcracker---yes...a squirrel working for good and not evil by cracking your favorite nutty treat! :)

Winnie's Wish Auction Update

Hi friends!
Whew! January has sure flown by fast. :)  I am busy with student teaching; however, I wanted to help my friend Miss Chrystal at Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with your Coffee) raise money to help her build the third cat room needed so that cats that are more timid have a place to relax and not be stressed by the cats with more dominance.  The cat room is already 50%+ funded from generous donations, but it needs to make it to 100% for the new room addition to be a reality. BTW--Chrystal is just asking for the money for the parts that will be needed to build the new cat room...her husband and her father will be providing the labor...so this is the bare-bones minimum cost of building a new cat room.

Any who...as of last record, I mentioned the auction would take place February 5th...it has now been. pushed back until February 16th as there is another auction going on via Facebook and it was decided that two auctions should not be going at the same time. Fair enough. :) 

This means that you have plenty of time to donate items to an auction and get ready to bid on February 16th.

I realize we are raising money for a cat house, but that does not mean that only cat items are wanted for this auction.  Dog items, cat items, household items, jewelry, etc....all of these items are wanted in an auction because not all people like the same things.  If that were true, we would only  need vanilla ice cream in the ice cream freezer and at all ice cream establishments.

Please send pictures of your auction items to Marg at margaretmsan AT gmail DOT com.  Marg needs an item description, picture of the item, starting bid, and who is paying for the postage...the winning bidder or you, the person donating the pawsome item to the auction.

The gofundme for the cat room is at the half way point! Please feel free to use it while you're waiting for the auction! Every dollar helps!"

I am a Winnie's Wish adopter of three purrs...Luna, Percy, and Golden.  I have been to this rescue in person.  This woman does nothing short of a miracle on a budget meant for fishes. :)  Chrystal's money for her rescue comes from donations and mostly her own pocket, which is from the kennel business she runs to keep her rescue alive and running.

Love to all. Please donate.  Every donation helps. Please spread the word about the upcoming auction and about the need for donations.

The auction will be held at:  http://www.auctionsforpetz.blogspot.com on Monday, February 16th.

Much Love to you all and God Bless,
Mindy :)

Auction Items Needed to help Winnie's Wish Cathouse (private animal rescue) build one more room!!

Hi friends!
I don't have much time lately to post about the pugs and purrs, but they are alive and puggy-ing and purring along.

I just wanted to let you  know this:
(Thanks to Andrea of Celestial Kitties for posting this on her website and allowing me to post it on my blog page)...because I would have typed the exact same thing!!)
"There is going to be an auction for Winnie's Wish so they can build a new room to alleviate some kitty stress in the cat house! The new room will separate timid kitties from aggressive ones and allow each kitty a little more room. This will also allow more kitties to be rescued!

The auction will start February 5th but if you have items to donate, please start sending the information to Marg! (margaretmsan AT gmail DOT com ) She needs a picture, a brief description and a starting bid. Don't forget to add who's paying for the postage, you or the winning bidder!

The gofundme for the cat room is at the half way point! Please feel free to use it while you're waiting for the auction! Every dollar helps!"

Important Business

Hi all!
The pugs are doing well and so are the purrs. I am sorry to say that regular blogging will not be possible; however, I will do my best to keep you posted of birthdays and the good, bad, and the ugly of being owned by pugs and purrs and the pugs and purrs being owners of "fur-less" adults.

My friend, and hopefully yours by now, Miss Chrystal, a private animal (primarily cats) rescuer, is in need of a new cat room/house. I would like to know if anyone is willing to hold an auction for her and/or donate items to the auction. I am asking for this help since I have no spare time as a full-time student teacher this semester, but I want to help my rescue friend and the kitties that need this cat house until their forever home can be found. Right now, she is about 1/2 way to the $5,000 cost. Her husband and her father build the cat room/house, so all the money goes to building supplies.

Please help me spread the word and let's try to make this auction idea a reality.

God Bless and Much Love,
Mama Mindy :)
