I keep saying it, but Dogsters and Catsters ARE the best people in the world! One of the furfriends needs help and they are there!

Take for instance Mu Shue and the Artsy Catsy Catsters. Catster Mu Shue needs expensive surgery and his furmom doesn’t have the resources. So what do fellow Catsters do? They devise a way to help her pay for at least the downpayment of $600.

This is from the Artsy Catsy blog, about our fellow Catster, Mu Shue, who is in need of expensive surgery. Artsy Catsy is selling BEAUTIFUL book marks to raise money for Mu Shue’s surgery. These will make awesome gifts as they really are very nice book marks. Check it all out below.

Bookmark Benefit for Mu Shue

ArtsyCatsy is worried about our new friend Mu Shue As you may know, he’s very sick and needs treatment that will cost his Mama Laura $1200. She has already spent her savings helping him, and even had to sell the heirloom jewelry her grandmother left her.

With 15 of us kitties, our humans have been in the same situation, and our hearts go out to Mu Shue and Mama Laura. We ArtsyCats are very impressed by how this wonderful world of blogging kitties pulls together to help each other out, and we want to do our part. So we met for a brainpurring session and had an IDEA! The human artists are making hand-beaded waxed linen bookmarks to offer for $10 each on our blog and we’ll send ALL the proceeds to Mu Shue and
Mama Laura.

To order bookmarks to help Mu Shue, just email ArtsyCatsy@yahoo.com
with your mailing address, the number of bookmarks you want to order, and whether you want to use PayPal or mail a check, and we’ll email instructions right back to you. (When you order, you can add a dollar or two to help cover mailing costs if you want, but you don’t have to. And, yes, we will ship internationally.)

We’ll make as many bookmarks as we can from now through Feb. 22, and then we’ll send ALL the money to Mu Shue and Mama Laura. Just think, if we could sell 60 bookmarks, that would completely cover the $600 down payment for Mu Shu’s treatment! And don’t forget, if you don’t need a bookmark, the wonderful Mr. Hendrix is also helping to collect donations for Mu Shue.

Our heartfelt thanks to all you kind and caring cats and beans for helping Mu Shue and Mama Laura. We’re very proud to be a part of this beautiful kitty community!

The next day when I went to check on their progress and to blog the event, was I ever amazed to see that ArstyCatsy had already SOLD ALL the bookmarks!! Wow! What wonderful Catsters! Here’s the update from the ArtsyCatsy blog:

FANTASTIC Feline Family Friday!

UPDATE: In less than 24 hours, we have SOLD OUT of bookmarks in the benefit for Mu Shue! You, the kind and generous kitty community, have raised $660 to help Mu Shue, more than the entire down payment for his treatments! In your honor, we declare today “Fantastic Feline Family Friday”!

Although the bookmark benefit has ended, donations to Mu Shue and his mama Laura are still being accepted to help with the $1390 total veterinarian fee. If you wish to donate, please email us and we’ll send you instructions for donating directly to Mu Shue.

Thank you all so much for helping us help Mu Shue!!
