Cat Jewelry Auction for Churchill

Our new friend Churchill, the abandoned kitty with a broken leg, is having surgery today. The surgery is very complex and expensive. It was recommended that Churchill be "put down" but, fortunately, his new parents, Michael and Rhiannon, had already fallen in love with him, so that was not an option. One look at this handsome guy, and you'll fall in love, too!
We're charmed by Churchill and his loving new family, so we're auctioning some Artsy Catsy kitty charms to help pay his vet bills. 100% of the auction proceeds will go to Churchill - we'll pay the postage.

So that we can get the funds to Churchill's family quickly, the auction will run for three days only - today through midnight Friday. To bid on an item, just leave a comment with your bid and the item number. We'll contact all winners on Saturday.

# N-1 Necklace with gold Laurel Burch cat charm

# N-2 Necklace with silver "Cats Meow" charm #N-3 Necklace with silver picture frame charm
(We'll add a photo for you, if you like.)

#B-4 Bookmark with gold cat charm

#P-5 Gold & silver cats pin
(Not handmade, but we love it!)Thank you so much for helping us help Churchill!

What lovely jewellery and you guys are wonderful to put up the range for auction to help Churchill! What I like are completely out of SS's budget.

Wow! You guys are getting great responses. I wish we could have seen this earlier! We would have bid a little but now some of our favs are out of our price range! (YEA HA!!!!)

You are so nice to help out sweet Churchill!

Tyler said...

We already made a donation for dear sweet Churchill,but we want to let you all know that it touches our hearts tremendously that you would be so generous with your artwork.

Mom's leaving work early so she can come home and hug us hard. Churchill's story about his beginning is heartbreaking!

Hugs to everyone,
Tyler

ML said...

Yes, you all are so sweet and thoughtful to help sweet Churchill and his new family. Poor little guy, it just hurts me to see what some people will do to animals. Imagine telling them to just "put him down" since there are "lots of cats" to be had. That Churchill picked a good family.
And thanks, Artsy-Catsy, for offering such great items.

Artsy Catsy said...

I'm continually in awe of the big, big hearts and incredible generosity that abounds in the Cat Blogosphere! You are all just so amazing!!
