BUBBLE & SQUEAK (kitties) would like to THANK YOU!! (w/one final request)

(I was previously given permission by Skinner to post periodically about http://www.wishadoo.org, especially when it involves DUers, with this required disclaimer: "The administrators of Democratic Underground have given permission for one discussion thread on this topic. The administrators of Democratic Underground make no claims regarding the legitimacy or illegitimacy of this fundraising effort. Permission was granted by Skinner on 8/6/2010, and the moderators have been notified."



Some of you may recall this post from months ago regarding a fellow DUer's call for help in finding a new home for two kitties, Bubble and Squeak. Glinda is the DUer whose friend has a terminal illness, which necessitated the kitties finding a new home.




The good news is that Bubble & Squeak have a new home!

Still, we're asking for your help one last time.

They made it to their new home last night. WeMovePets, a pet transport company, kindly agreed to move them to Maine to be with their new forever family. They provided this service at a reserved "emergency rate" of $500; normally the fee is well over a thousand.

ANOTHER DUer (jsmirman) helped facilitate the move and ended up putting the amount on his charge card because they required payment in advance, with no time for a fundraiser. The kitties had been living in a crate at the vet for several weeks until their big move yesterday. He put himself on the line financially to help Bubble and Squeak.


We're asking if you can please help raise $500 to reimburse this kind soul. Even $5 given by many people can add up and help tremendously!

TO DONATE TO THE "BUBBLE & SQUEAK FUND" please PM jsmirman and he'll provide details.



THANK YOU in advance for helping with this final stage of the journey for Bubble and Squeak and for keeping this thread kicked!



BIG THANKS to jsmirman, who has been a guardian angel throughout this critical time.
