Happy Friday!!!!

Happy Friday!

Hooray for the weekend!

Hooray for the weekend!

We are ready to play! And Jen is ready to rest and catch up on my blog!

DeDe wants to spend some time outside.... or in.... or out.... or in.....

And the cats? Well, they do the same thing every day!

The lazy bums!

The lazy bums!

Bubba is back to the vet for blood work as we’re still not seeing any improvement. Please pray we find out what’s going on with him.


And here’s your daily reminder to vote for me in the World Spay Day Pet Pageant! Thanks to your support, I am now in 7th place.

A couple of you seemed upset that I am so competitive about this. But here’s the thing. Excitement generates interest, which generates votes. The more votes I get means the more people who have been exposed to the message of spay/neuter of companion animals.

What do I win if I get the most votes? A collar with my name on it. I already have one, thanks. Oh, and the winner gets to give $1000 to a participating program to further their spay/neuter efforts! So yeah, if I have a chance to do that, I’m going to try to win to make that happen! I hope you will agree. Vote for me please!

And if you disagree with my methods, then I would ask you remember the words of the Dalai Lama:  If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. I will do the prayer for Bubba. I voted already today, twice, and would try for three but do not know if that would make you disqualified if they found out. I am using Facebook and another email address that I have. I also have a gmail email address that I could use. What do you think?

    I personally feel that what you are doing for spay/neuter is not in the least bit offensive or over the top. The only promotion that I see is someone who is passionate about spay/neuter and trying to get the word out. Keep up the good work!

  17. I think what you do is great Rumpy, your enthusiam makes people take notice. You shine a bright light on causes, and not because you want to win, but because it’s the right thing to do and it’s who you are 🙂

  29. Helping others is very noble. You are a noble guy, Rumpy. Plus you don’t enter a contest unless you’re planning to win, so yay, you. Continue going all out! We’re behind you!

  33. I just voted again. I will pray for Bubba. It’s been a rough time for you, first with mom and now with Bubba. As much as you tease about them Rumpy, I know you really love them.

  37. I know which ‘activity’ is *my* favorite. Clearly it’s no coincidence that I am a Kat.

    Posted by kathryningrid | March 2, 2013, 4:35 PM
  38. I hope the tests came back with positive results for Bubba. It’s always a worry when our companions are feeling poorly.
