Special Dare for Texas

Texas' Dare

Before he left for the bridge, Texas came up with this Dare. He was too late in handing it in to be included with all the others for voting but as this is a very grave matter we decided to devote this weekend to just do this Dare as an honor for Texas. Here we go:

We, Texas and The Cat Realm, dare you all to do something to raise money for cancer research, especially for cats.

- donate
- volunteer somewhere
- put a link to a site on your blogs
- take the Petey challenge
- those of you with a big non-cat readership go spread the word with human bloggers
- or whatever else you can come up with to help.

Here are some reputable sites you could use
Winn Feline Foundation
The CSU Animal Cancer Center

Do a post about it and let us know where you donated, or volunteered, which link you put on your blog or what else you came up with to help.

Here is your button that you may display if you accept the challenge


Please, please do this for Texas, for Storm, for Rascal, for Petey and all the other furbabies who have suffered with this illness.

I think it was a great dare. BTW did you get a new header on your site? I quite like it. It looks brighter than I remember it.

ML said...

What a great post. Texas was a great and brave cat, just like your sister Storm. They certainly made me aware of this terrible disease in cats.
I am going to do several things to help out, in honor of Texas and Storm.

Thank you so much Castle and Meowmie L! Who is Rascal? Was he a housemate of yours at one time Castle?

We don't have a blog, but we took the dare and donated green papers to the Winn Feline Foundation in memory of Texas. We're very sad that we're lost friends like Storm and Texas to the icky cancer and hope the humans can find a way to prevent it.

Since we've been effected by cancer here too, although not cat cancer we always do our bit. What's even better our local cancer charity always have lovely cat blankets on sale so Mummy gets those for us and has promises each kitten can have one from now on since we only found out that they'll be stocking them all the time a few months ago... They're very cuddly and warm and the cause is so dear to all out hearts that they are pretty much our fave blankets now! :)

Dad planted up the local Marie Curie garden with dafs too, so we'll have to get Mummy to visit it in the spring and take photos of his hard work! :)
