63 pets
53 humans
116 names!

And... what was donated was...

8 bottles of Bleach
5 bags of dry kitten food
55 cans kitten food
12 cans cat food
7 bottles of pine cleaner
3 sacks of kitty litter (25lbs)
11 bottles of dishwashing detergent
1 package of cat toys
1 package of reusable wipes.
2 bottles of laundry detergent
22 rolls of paper towel
127 items donated.

Yes, the items outweight the names, but bites_the_sun made a cash donation, which I used to buy extra stuff. Yes, I know at least one other person offered to send me cash to help with this, and I did refuse, telling them that I'd rather they used the money for their local shelter or food bank. I made an exception for dadelenah, because she's 'in transet" right now, and really doesn't have a "local shelter" to donate too.

Yes, the shelter is very happy. At some point they will be emailing or snail mailing me with a thank you, which I will post to this journal, so all of you can read it.

I really think they were pleased. Our last drop off was Wednesday morning, and when we went in, the volunteers and the workers all shouted, "Look, it's Mr. and Mrs. Clause again!" Something tells me we way outdid anyone else who was donating.

So, even though at some point we'll get an official thank you, I'd still like to thank you all myself... all of you who took the time to support this idea and leave a comment saying you'd like to participate. Thank you. It may not have seemed like much... "Okay, so I leave a comment... maybe two...." but look what it lead to! A pretty simple thing, but it helped make a shelter pretty happy. A 34 cent can of kitten food probably seems like nothing, but when you donate 55 cans of it, you know that's a lot of kittens that will get a chance to eat. Bleach and pine cleaner will help keep the shelter clean.

And for everyone who is donating to shelters or food banks in their own area? Thank you as well.

I'm seriously thinking of doing this for my birthday too. *g* Only this time, I think I'll do some research and see if there are any dog shelters that are no-kill in the area, and share some of the wealth with them as well. I do like dogs. I can't own one, cause of where I live, but I have nothing against them.

Again, thank you. All of you who signed gave me a fantastic gift. A chance to help cats who need it, while they're waiting for good homes. And, I admit, it was fun. Going to various stores, trying to hunt out decent bargains. We went to three different supermarkets looking for different varieties of Friskies canned kitten food, because the Stop and Shop we shop at only sells the turkey. We now know that Shaws sells Turkey, Ocean fish, and Mixed grill. Food Basket sells Turkey and Mixed grill. Yes, if I ever adopt a kitten, I'll know where to go for kitten food!

Sorry I didn't post this Wednesday or Thursday, but I seem to be fighting off a cold. By the time I've finished with work and taken my walk, I'm pretty much wiped out for the day.

So, one more time... thanks. This will always be a very special Christmas for me. And I have all of you who's names are at the top of this post to thank.
