Plea of an innocent kitty

The other day I was working with Jessica and I overheard her talking with Miss Kelley and Miss Jessie about fundraising. Last weekend, they had another booksale (if I was not a Resource Cat, I would want to be a Library Cat-so I was interested in hearing more about the booksale) but turnout was not what they had hoped for.

I am learning that something called "funding" is a common issue for places like the Center. I am pretty sure that "funding" is important, since Miss Jessie said we might need to cut back on my food! This is serious! I know I eat a lot, but I am a growing kitty and kitties need their nourishment!

Last night I did some internet surfing and found out that places like my home rely on people so they can help other people. This is where "funding" comes from. The humans here help other humans on a daily basis (and some kitties too!), but Miss Jessica, Miss Kelley, and everyone else can only do so much.

So, in the interest of my next meal-please think about helping fund the Upstate Family Resource Center. My tummy will thank you!!

As I sit here happily playing with my new green marble, I take time to reflect on the past two weeks...
It all started with a big storm. I thought I was old enough to handle the "big booms" (I later found out they are called thunder claps...) but I soon realized they were very scary for a little kitty such as myself.
I desperately ran and ran (and ran and get the picture...) until I saw sanctuary in the form of a big oak tree. I spent the next few hours wet, miserable, clinging to a tree. It was a sad state.
Come morning, I was wet and my beautiful white coat was a dingy brown. I started to give up hope... what was I going to do? Where was I going to live? And where is my next meal coming from???? I was SCARED!
But like a ray of hope from heaven itself.... I saw a door open. A warm, comforting feeling came over me. I ran down the tree (I almost fell, but I maintained) and crying my head off! I wanted someone to hear me!
And someone did. She knelt down and I couldn't help myself-I jumped into her arms. I didn't care at that point what would happen to me--I just knew I made the right decision.
The lady (I later heard people calling her "Jessica") carried me into the building and called two other ladies. One brought a nice big bowl of food and water to me and the other made me a soft bed in some sort of portable cave-like thing.
It was then I knew this was the place to be! This new place was so inviting, and even the boss-lady(I think they call her Kelley) thought I was cute!
So now I am happy, warm, and have a full belly. I even have a job: Mascot and greeter! Life is SO good at the Upstate Family Resource Center!
