Wampi's 4th Friday Cast Call



Happy Friday Everyone!

Welcome to the 4th -- can you believe it already?? -- Friday Cast Call. And the website has a new look! Daria, a web designer at Web Divas redesigned the site free to help support Wampi's fundraising cause. She did such a great job, don't you think? Leave a comment today and let us know what you think of the new site. =)

As for Wampi, he is so adorable and so sweet. I'll admit, it was very hard getting these photos today ... he is standing more on his legs and wanting lots of attention. So I pet him, took a picture, pet some more, took another picture...you get the ... idea. =) The very fact that he is moving around so much really gives me hope that he will be able to walk well after the cast is off. The vets cautioned though that he will most likely have a limp and may even develop arthritis.

I picked him up during the off-and-on photo session and I was actually able to hold him next to me and he purred! If you have a cat, or even a dog, then you know how wonderful it is to have your furry one cuddled up with you. He was purring and looking at me with half-closed eyes (I think that means "I Love You" in cat-speak.

Donor Update: In the last week, there have been 12 more donors through PayPal including 2 overnight ... Daria and Sarah. =) Thank you! Wampi was not thrilled about me trying to write on the other side of his cast so I had to add to the same side as last weeks autographs ... very crowded now. I took a few pictures so if you donated, you should be able to see your name wedged on there!

So far $2,313.66 from donations & recycling. That's almost half of the total loan in about 5 weeks! Wow. Thanks everyone for your support either financially, emotionally, visiting the site, and of course through link referrals. THANKS AGAIN!

I'm so happy we could help out with Wampi.. we're all cat lovers and I'll ask them if we can adopted Wampi as the Web-Divas mascot! :D

Good luck to Wampi on Monday. Let us know how that goes. Like I said before, I'm so glad his recovery is coming along quickly - and to hear that you got luvs and purrs today! Aww!

thanks rachel & sarkasmo. =)

i would love it if wampi was the web-divas mascot! that would be so cool.

as for the funds raised, by far most of the money that has been raised comes from donations, some people donate $2 or even up to $20 and it is just really adding up over time.

also more and more people are recycling and telling me that the money is from cans or bottles or whatever. i would really like to get "recycling coordinators" set up around the country (world-dare i dream) to help collect and recyle.

lots of people in my building leave their recyclables in front of my door ... lines of cans and bottles on my doorstep ... sometimes it looks like there was a party! lol.

The site revamp looks great, but what has happened to the google ads? I always click on them when I come to your site?

ah...the google ads ... someone targeted them with a clicking program so i had to suspend the ads for now or lose my account. it sux and i'm upset that someone would maliciously do that but hey, that's what happened. not everyone likes cats.

for now, i'll have to rely on donations and recycling. for those who can't donate or recycle, comments and encouragement are always appreciated.

i'll probably put some ads back on the page eventually but want to wait awhile until i know more what happened and who did it. =(

Really great blog! I noticed a mention about psoratic arthritis . I thought you might be interested to hear that both my parents and several of their friends have had problems with arthritis and we have been very lucky to have come across Bioflow. They are sold at psoratic arthritis and they have been worth every penny. They don't seem to work for everyone but they have helped reduce the pain in my parents arthritis so that they almost don't notice it any longer. They'd still be taking painkillers if it wasn't for wearing a Bioflow on their wrist
