Auction for Laura, Mu Shue, Lilly Lu & Iris

UPDATE Apr. 17: CONGRATULATIONS DERBY! You had the winning bid on the wind chime!

GOOD NEWS UPDATE, 7 pm:

Check the Cat Blogosphere ... Mu Shue, Lilly Lu and Iris are ALIVE!!!


Rocky: We're auctioning this beautiful cat wind chime to help Mama Laura rebuild her life after the fire, and also to help her find Mu Shue, Lilly Lu and Iris, who are still missing. Lilly Lu is recoving from major surgery and needs daily medication, and Mu Shue needs an inhaler twice daily and sub-Q fluids once a week, so they must be found quickly! You can read updates on the search efforts at the Cat Blogosphere.

The 30-inch wind chime is hand made from punched, hammered metals, with glass beads and a "Noah Bell". The tag says: Noah Bells are distinctive from all other bells due to the melodic, echoing tones. Each bell is completely hand made. It is the secret family formula of smelting various metals and the hand hewed clapper and the individual tuning of each bell that creates the unusual resonate sound. Shepherds prize these bells as they enable them to easily hear and find their flocks from many miles away, and they are believed to scare away evil spirits."

We hope the magical Noah Bell on the wind chime will keep Mu Shue, Lilly & Iris safe and help guide their way home!
















100% of the winning bid will be given to Mama Laura; Artsy Catsy will pay for shipping.

The auction will last five days only because we have more items coming up, so leave your bid here in the comments before Wednesday, April 16 at midnight Eastern Daylight Time. (The retail price was $35.99) We'll notify the winner on Thursday.

Lots of kitties are working to help Mama Laura, so don't forget to check out other auctions & raffles at the new Auction Site and at Cat Friends Helping Friends!

I'd like to bid $30. In addition to this being for a good cause, it would make an excellent new-house gift for my parents, who have three cats and love wind chimey things! :)

Clarification on the end time for the auction: is that midnight at the *end* of Wednesday or at the *beginning*? I'm assuming the end, but I'd hate to miss out because I got it wrong!

ps. I can't seem to get my google account to log in to post this comment -- my email address is my username at gmail dot com.
