Squashies and Sophia!

Bloggie friends!

This is an emergency call for anyone in and around Baltimore with a cat blood typed B. Sweet Squashies of TK -Furrever Home needs a blood transfusion, details here. Please please help!

Charlie says: If I could I would!



********************************************

Lovely Sophia - who sings beautifully, writes thoughtful poetry and most profound essays on faith has released a book, called the Mormon Diaries:


Brought up in a religious home, Sophia believes the only way to have a forever family is by following church leaders and obediently choosing the right. She goes to the right school, marries the right man in the right place, and does the right thing by staying home to raise her children. But when she starts asking questions about grace, love, and the nature of God, she realizes her spiritual struggles could rip her family apart.

You may purchase/read a sample chapter here and here. Good luck Sophia!

Have a peaceful weekend all!

I commented on Squashies blog, I feel sure my kitties could donate but we are in Colorado!

We are all praying for our dear friend Squashies.

We are very sad about Squashies and have posted their link on our Facebook page. Praying that someone who can help sees it.

I say the same thing as Charlie. Sorry I can't help.

And congrats to Angela.

Hey Old Kitty,
Knowing a number of folks who work within animal welfare in the States, I shall now go and put the link up to your article on various social network sites.
All the best to Angela.
Take care, eh.

I just saw the urgent request on TK & Squashies blog, so awful. I really hope a donor can be found quickly, if one hasn't already. :-(

We're in Catafornia.

Theresa Milstein said...

Oh, that poor cat!

I thought Sophia L. Stone didn't want her identity known. Guess not!

Katie Isabella said...

I would give anything in the world to help my dear dear furriend Squashies. I am devestated.

mshatch said...

I read an interview with the author this week and enjoyed it quite a bit. Charlie looks ghostly sitting behind those curtains!

Oui Oui said...

We live outside Baltimore, we will ask our vet Monday morning.

Amber DaWeenie said...

We don't have any kitty blood in our house but we can send lots of prayers and POTP!

PawHugs,
Amber

Tracy Jo said...

Oh no! I hope sweet squashies gets the blood transfusion. Sending positive thoughts that they find the blood they need!! Hugs!

Julia Hones said...

I hope sweet Charlie will get better soon. I will be thinking of you. (Old Kitty: I hope I did not offend you with my blog entry mentioning that short story. It was written by a feminist as a matter of fact). Have a good week.

DWei said...

I don't live anywhere near there sorry. :(

Pasha said...

We hope a kitty with blood type B shows up in Baltimore!!!

That sounds like an interesting book. We'll look into it!

Have a nice week!

Medeia Sharif said...

I wish I could help too. I hope someone comes through.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We're purring up a storm that a donor can be found for Squashies quickly!

Poor Squashie. I hope someone does come forward.

Congratulations to Angela!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We didn't realise that cats had different blood types too - now Mum is wondering what our blood types are. DO you know Charlie's?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Jennifer Shirk said...

Congrats to Angela!

Clarissa Draper said...

Yay, I hope Sophia does well with her book! And I hope that cat gets the care he needs.

Stephen Tremp said...

I didn't know it was available for cats to need or have blood transfusions. I learn something important every day. I hope Sweet Squashies finds what he's looking for!

lupie said...

We hope sweet Squashies finds a donor soon!

We know you would, if you can Charlie! You are a very kind kitty!!

Helena said...

I hope Sweet Squashies gets her blood transfusion! And thank you for the heads-up about Angela's book. It sounds touching and so apt -- we all think our lives will be fine if only we always do the "right" thing. But life just ain't that simple.

LTM said...

oh! We're not around Baltimore, but I hope Squashies gets what she needs! And yes, LOVED MD. It's such a powerful book. Good stuff.

*scratches* to Charlie! :o) <3

Pk Hrezo said...

Wow a blood transfusion? Wishing them luck.

Book sounds interesting. Best of luck to Angela!

Tamago said...

We saw the post about Squashies. We hope the donor will be found soon.

The book sounds very interesting!

KarenMcG said...

We're no where near Baltimore so we'll join with you in purryers that they find just the kitty(ies) they need for Squashies.

We'll also keep our paws and fingers crossed for Angela's best of luck with her book.

Thanks, Charlie and Jennifer, for letting us know about these things.

Maria McKenzie said...

Angela's book sounds wonderful! Sorry I can't help Squashies:(.

Repositório said...

Wishing Sophia all the best with her book.

I wouldn't know what blood type my cat is... hmmm... now I'm curious.

Helena said...

Thank you for your kind words re Scooter, who has now gone to Rainbow Bridge. The support and kindness of people in blogworld has been an indescribable help. Thank you so much.

Hugs

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I don't have a cat, plus I live in Canada). Hope he can get some kitty blood soon.

Susan Fields said...

I hope you find the cat you need to help out! And that book sounds terrific!

Talli Roland said...

Good luck to Sophia! I'm seeing this book all over the place. Well done!

Hart Johnson said...

I didn't even know cats could donate blood... I hope the kitty gets what's needed!

And the book sounds good--thanks for sharing it!

LynNerdKelley said...

You are so cool to put out a call for blood for the sick kitty. I hope the cat gets the transfusion. Congrats to Sophia!

Sherlock, Ash and Traveler said...

We are purring and praying!!

Katz Tales said...

We hear a blood donor has been found. Yeah!

I won't check out this book. Living in a country where religion is daily fare has made me terribly intolerant of anyone talking about invisible gods - except for Xena and Buffy.

Hope Charlie's gums are ok now.

Cezar and Léia said...

Oh poor critter, I wish I could help!
I'm sending purrs and love to you all
Luna - WE LOVE LUNA

Cheri said...

Happy Pirate Day to you both! Arrgghh!

The Teacher's Pets said...

That book intrigued me as I was brought up in a strict Christian home and it did tear our family apart so I'd love to read the author's take on the subject!

Purrfect Haven said...

we would help if we could... Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

RaShelle Workman said...

So sorry about the kitty. ;(

Patsy said...

Congratulations, to Sophia.

Sorry, I don't have a cat so can't help.

Hilary said...

I hope your friend gets the blood they need... the book looks great!

Katie Isabella said...

Thank heavesn Squashies got 2 donors. I am eternally grateful. I love that family.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Poor Sweet Squashies. I hope kitty gets the blood transfusion and all is well very soon.

And Mormon diaries sounds interesting. Yet another book for the TBR pile. ; )

The Golden Eagle said...

I hope they found a cat with the right blood type to help!

Congratulations to Sophia on her book.

meowmeowmans said...

We are so happy that a donor (TWO actually) have been found for Squashies! :)

Sophia's book sounds great!

Jackee said...

Oh man! Poor kitty. I hope it works out for them!

Plain Jane said...

Poor Squashies. I hope she is all right. I'm way too far away to help, but would if I could.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

My prayers are with the poor wee cat. Like the Golden Eagle, I hope they found a cat with the right blood type to help.

Best wishes for Sophia on her book. Charlie is doing well I hope, Roland
