*Edited to add (3:30 pm): We’ve received over $2,950 in donations in less than two days! That’s more than enough to pay for the surgeries for ALL of these kittens, thank you all so much! You guys are incredible!!!

You guys are AMAZING. By 3:00 yesterday afternoon, you had sent donations to Challenger’s House that totaled almost $1,100. When Susan told me that, I was floored. You guys are THE BEST. Thank you so much for your donations and your blog, Twitter, and Facebooks links!

Once the first couple of eye surgeries are done we’ll know better exactly how much the surgeries will cost, but this vet is willing to do them for a very low price, and I think that with the donations Challenger’s House has received, we’re about covered.

And the kitties would like to thank each and every one of you. Or at least they would, if they had any idea what was going on. They’re kind of busy running around like their butts are on fire, though, so I’ll thank you in their place.

Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you!!!!

(I’ll do my best to get you an updated total donations by Monday!)

Did I mention they’re busy racing around like wild things?

Terry can’t decide whether he wants IN the bed or OUT of the bed. He’s afraid he’s going to miss something.

They LOVE to chew on these cat beds. Something about the fabric must feel good between their teeth.

Bill is cross-eyed – which you can never usually tell in his pictures, because 99% of the time his eyes are mostly closed. Doesn’t slow him down, though!

The Beast Between the Pillows pops out to show Sam who the boss is. (Hint: it’s not Sam who’s the boss! In case you wondered!)

All day long, they claw their way up the comforter to my bed. I imagine that one day I’ll pick up one side of the comforter, and it’ll just disintegrate into a million pieces.

Okay, we’re off to the vet, Sam and Hoyt and Bill and I. Keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well, would you? I’ll post first thing in the morning to let y’all know how it went.

  1. SQUEEEE!!! Sorry, I lose the ability to speak for a second every time I see those little guys. My fingers are crossed for them!

  2. be brave, little kitties…and Robyn and Bill, too. Fingers crossed (me) and paws/tails crossed (Percy, Tucker, Frannie and Zoe).

  3. Oh that is such good news about the donations! I am glad that the vet is nice enough to agree to do it for a low price – that is very kind of them. We will be sending out purrs (from the kitties) and prayers and good thoughts (from me) for the first 3 – we really hope everything goes well (I have to be honest that I am a bit nervous about the eye surgery).

  4. I’m late as usual, but just catching up on everything…so happy that the Truebloods are going to have their corrective surgery…will hit the paypal button as soon as I finish posting this!

  5. All fingers and paws crossed here for the three furries and for you, too! Hope everything goes well and they heal fast.

    How awesome will it be when they don’t have to squint anymore!

  6. it’s so heart warming to hear about the donations. What a wonderful bit of news. Good luck with everything!

  7. Hope the surgeries went well for the first batch of itty bitties.

    And a huge “well done!” to all for their generosity! And that starts with you, Robyn, for doing such a great job taking care of these adorable little fuzzballs!

  8. Oh wowee! These are the kyooooootest baby poodins! We are so glad that they will have their little eyes fixed! We don’t have information on that problem ourselves, but we are totally confident that the vet will work it all out and everything will be fine for the poodins! I guess they have to wear e-collars? Yuckster! Good luck!
