Quilters help FURR!!

November 22, 2011

A wonderful lady and her husband adopted a kitty from FURR about a year ago named “Downey”.  Downey was a SUPER sweet and beautiful lilac point female that was a little older and a bit shy (like a lot of our rescued kitties).  Joyce Walker and her husband thought Downey was just precious and they took her into their home!  It was a wonderful adoption for FURR and a joy to see Downey (after waiting for over a year) go to a loving family!

Last week I got a call from Joyce!  She informed me that she was a member of the Union County Quilters ladies group.  Believe it or not, this is no fly-by-night quilting group!  This group of ladies does some MEAN and SERIOUS quilting!  When I was invited over to see their work, there were blue ribbons hanging all over the place and GORGEOUS quilts hanging for viewing and ooohing and aaahing over!  These are not the kind of quilts that you throw over your bed and lounge around on!  No sir!  These are not the kind of quilts that you let your cats sleep on and make their biskets on……..no sir!  These are very precious, carefully crafted quilts that take MONTHS to make!  These quilts are masterpieces and are usually displayed by hanging them on the wall or by framing them!  What REALLY makes these quilts special is the fact that they are all made for charity work!  These wonderful ladies put all this hard work, time and love into their quilts JUST to donate them for auction to raise money for charity groups!

FURR was lucky enough to be selected as one of the charity groups to be honored with one of these special quilts!  (see picture attached)  Our quilt will be finished by the end of the year and it is just ADORABLE with red and black kitties on it!  If you can see in the picture, there are button noses and eyes, little collars with bells, all kinds of precious faces, etc.  It is truly one of a kind!  FURR will be holding a raffle for this beautiful kitty quilt starting soon and the raffle will probably run for at least 6 months.  The goal (according to the ladies!) is to raise at least $2,000 to $3,000 for this piece!!!  How great is that?  You can bet that I’m going to buy my share of raffle tickets!  I can clearly see this beautiful display hanging in my NEW kitty rescue facility!
