Introducing ...

 

 

Cat Tails of Rescue, by Barbara Stanley

I am very excited and pleased to introduce Cat Tails of Rescue!

Cat Tails of Rescue is a collection of 25 stories of some of the wonderful animals that have touched our lives at Home 2 Cats. Due to lack of space in our newsletter, "The Scratching Post", we have only been able to share short versions of some of our rescue stories.

This softbound book contains 90 pages of the unabridged versions of some of your favorite stories, plus new rescue stories that previously have not been published. Stories such as ‘Phoebe’, the cat that was waiting to fulfill her destiny, and ‘The Legend of Tracker Mouse’, the rescue of a mouse. (Yep, you read that right! Home 2 Cats rescue has no boundaries!)

LAMA Books has generously donated the cost of publishing this book. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Home 2 Cats to improve the lives of animals and to educate the public.

With LAMA Books so generously donating the publishing cost, we are able to offer Cat Tails of Rescue at an incredible price of $5 (plus shipping, if required)!

At the wonderful and affordable price of $5, you know I expect everyone to buy at least one copy. You need one book for yourself and, of course, additional copies as gifts for all the animal lovers in your lives.

I hope the rescue stories in Cat Tails of Rescue provide enlightenment at what can be accomplished and provide inspiration to you, the individual, to become involved in rescue efforts for animals in need.

Please support our rescue efforts and order your books today!

Book Testimonials

"Oh my gosh, I just got done reading your book ...  IT’S SO WONDERFUL!!!!  I absolutely loved reading all those stories of rescue.  You and Larry are such special people ...  I could go on and on.  That little book is a seller!"  --Barbara Ragusa

"I like your tails because they're real -- you manage to capture the events, the personalities of the subjects, and also your own feelings without going too far.  I don't feel manipulated when I read them and you somehow always seem to balance out the bad stuff with the good.  The only agenda is the welfare of the animal and that's how it should be."  --Donald Hargrove

For any artwork purchased through his website by Home 2 Cats supporters, Drew has generously pledged 10% of the purchase price back to Home 2 Cats.

Animal and People Recognition

While losing a companion is one of life's greatest sorrows, never having one is to miss out on years of loving companionship.

A Word from Home (2 Cats!)

Phoebe and Holle’s 3 Cents A Day Animal Challenge

That’s only a $1 a month donation or $12 a year to join Phoebe and Holle in their challenge.

Phoebe & Holle
This duo is really getting into the swing of things. They were so inspired by the number of animals that responded and joined their challenge that they decided to each give a dollar. I have a feeling this was more Holle’s idea than Phoebe’s, but regardless, we are proud of both felines. Thank you Phoebe & Holle!

Mini
I’m glad to help, but don’t touch my catnip!

Cedar
Cedar was surprised that he was giving up more money. It seems he thought he was donating a dollar a month for three months not for twelve. His owner said the shock is wearing off!

Scraps Mauk
Scraps is still our only dog to join the Challenge. Canines, where are you?

Milo Mauk
Milo and Scraps are still mailing their $1 monthly donation under separate cover. I personally think it’s because Scraps wants to lick both envelopes, because I swear I detected dog drool on their last envelopes!

Katie
As long as Katie doesn’t have to give up canned cat food, she is still willing to give.

Ozzie, Harriet & Murphy
Finding it hard to sacrifice the treats but knowing in their little chubby hearts it’s for a good cause.

Coco, Blanche, Chiquata, Ric, Louie, Amber, Mama Kitty and Baby Kitty
These rescued felines sent their money for the challenge for the whole year. Smart kitties!

And a Few More Words from Home (2 Cats!)

The Cat Show is Coming

The Mid South Cat Fanciers Cat Show is being held April 7 & 8 at the Agricenter International in Memphis, TN. We will have the book, Cat Tails of Rescue, available for sale in addition to our usual cute cat items. This is a great opportunity to pick up something special for you and your feline friends and support our rescue efforts. How great is that! We hope to see all you cat lovers at the show!

 

GoodSearch.com

There is a new and easy way to raise money for Home 2 Cats just by searching the Internet with "GoodSearch.com".

GoodSearch.com is a new search engine that donates half its revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate. It’s simple. You use GoodSearch.com like any other search engine — the site is powered by Yahoo! — but each time you do, a small donation is generated for Home 2 Cats.

Just go to www.goodsearch.com and be sure to enter Home 2 Cats as the charity you want to support. We hope that not only will you use GoodSearch as your main search engine from here on out, but will also pass this message on to your friends and family. The more supporters we have who use GoodSearch will help generate additional funds for Home 2 Cats.
