Roll the Flood Back: First Draft Kitty Week!


So last week was the worst week ever, and in addition to the bombings in Boston, the ricin, the gun control fail, the West, Texas explosion, the manhunt and its conclusion, and various politicians’ using their pieholes to talk, the Chicago suburbs flooded. As in, six feet of water in people’s basements, parts of EXPRESSWAYS closed, stranded/drowned cars in sinkholes, etc.

Among the flooding victims wasFeral Fixers, a cat shelter and spay-neuter-release program in Lombard. Their cats are all safe, butthis shelter lost everything:


Let’s do this and get out of this miserable slump. Let’s raise some money for the kitties. Feral Fixersneeds:

  • Towels
  • Blankets
  • 6″ paper plates
  • Canned cat food
  • Paper towels
  • Newspaper
  • Kitty Litter (Special Kitty Cat Litter is preferred)
  • New Electric Heating Blankets
  • Scotch tape, “Sharpie” permanent Markers and Copier paper
  • Furry Toy Mice (for cats in Foster)
  • “Silent Auction” items for our fundraisers
  • Orijen dry cat food
  • Gift Cards (Jewel, Dominick’s, Menards, Home Depot, Pet Supplies Plus, Walmart, gas station)

Hitthe tip jar up and put “kitties” or “kitty week” in the comments field.

I figure, if we can get to $300 by week’s end, Mr. A and I will go on a shopping spree Friday night and deliver a CARLOAD of everything they need to theElmhurst PetCo where they’re taking donations.

You can also donate to them directlyhere, or buy from their Wal-Mart registryhere.

Let’s do something to make this neverending misery stop. Let’s make things for the kitties better.

  1. I just sent $30 to you. I’ll send more as soon as I get home, and can assess my situation. This is why I love you all so very, very much. Your hearts are always in the right place!

  2. Thanks — I was able to hit the tip jar. Ian, the link in the post wasn’t working for me either, but the “Donate to First Draft” button did.
    Obviously down here we’re all-too-familiar with flooding…so for everyone who helped us when we needed it, thanks again, and we hope things turn around for you as soon as possible.

  3. Either the button or the link should work. Typepad has been fucked all day but they promise they are working on it. It has to do with their integration with Paypal.
    The actual e-mail address is , if that helps.

  4. I gave 50 for the kitties. Please, please, please, do not tell my dog. He will not be happy with me.
    At all. He no likee the kitties. Especially that grey one that isn’t scared of him.

  5. I just gave $25. I’ll kick in another $25 if you neuter FeralLiberal :^)

  6. Hey, it’s kitties – I may be part-time, but some felines need help and I can face our remaining four catzes at home having done this. 🙂
