BOWLING FOR THE KITTIES

My bowling team, "Paw Prints on Your Heart." 
Last Saturday, April 23rd, I participated in the Toronto Cat's Rescue's 12th Annual Bowl-A-Thon. I had heard about the event from a friend who volunteers with them and quickly decided to take part.

Rob and I usually pick one charity event a year to raise money for, along with the monthly donations we regularly give to organizations that are important to us. This year it was an easy decision to get involved with TCR's bowl-a-thon. It was held the same month as Meadow's passing last year, and seemed a great way to honor her. Meadow had a great life with us, and raising money to help other cats have a great life just seemed a good thing to do.

Toronto Cat Rescue is a registered charity and volunteer run organization. They help thousands of cats find homes every year. You can read more about them by clicking HERE.

I want to thank everyone who sponsored me, we helped TCR raise $25,000, and beat their goal! It's not too late to donate though, you can still sponsor me HERE until May 7th.

Below are a few pics from what was a great charity event. I love bowling, I love kitties, and I will always love Meadow, it was a win-win-win day!


Helping thousands of kitties every year.
Lots of prizes to be won.
Registration table, it was very organized, I like that.
Cat toys for sale, most of them home-made. We bought a few things for Merry & Molly.
Lots of merchandise to purchase.
I wore Meadow's leash for good luck, it worked, I won a prize and got a couple strikes and spares.
Going for a strike.
Success!!

Shake those tails ladies.
A big Thank You to Jenn for organizing our team.
I was actually one of the top fund raisers, thanks to my sponsors and won a prize! I gave everyone on my team something, and some of the stuff I will be donating back to TCR. I saved a few things for Merry & Molly to enjoy.
