Good afternoon, Felinity Assembled, not to mention Cat Lovers, worldwide, Elvira Mistress of Felinity, here.
Way back in the spring of 2011, Nikita and I had begun a series of weekly round-ups, usually posted on Monday, or Tuesday, letting evryone know of various ongoing and regular events around the community.
The last entry was posted 4 days before Daddy Kiril broke his ankle.
A lot has happened since then and now that we are relocated, and ready to move forward again, we figured it was time to start the series up once more.
Some of the regular events we reported no longer occur so we are trying to gather information on anything new going on, from short term, to ongoing in nature.
CARNIVALS & EVENTS:
1. Carnival of the Cats #452 was hosted by Mind of Mog
The CoTC is the Grand Daddy of Cat Blogosphere events, & is held on Sunday evening.
If you want to learn how to submit a blog post, or host, go here!
2. Friday Ark #407, hosted as usual by The Modulator, was, as usual, as entertaining, with a huge cast as varied, as visiting your local Zoo, not to mention a new look, apparently, as each entry in the main categories has a small related image via the Mr. Linky tool. :-D
3. Weekend Cat Blogging #387 will be a bit late, as the gang at Life From A Cat's (& 1 Dog!) Perspective await tuesday help from their Human.
You can learn about hosting, and submitting, at the home of Weekend Cat Blogging.
6. Over at Mousebreath, "the Lifestyle Magazine for Cats, by Cats, for Cat Lovers", the Funny Farmer Felines have been doing interviews of their fellow Cat Bloggers since July, and the latest edition was last week, and featured the gang at A Tonk's Tale.
The full, scrollable, archive is here.
On a Special Note:
George the duck has created a great resource list for Humans and animals affected by hurricane Sandy, and there is this event below, all this week.
We received this message in e-mail, this morning:
Today on Mayzie's blog, we announced "Wag N' Swag: a Fundraiser for Sandy Pets." We've chosen three deserving LOCAL no-kill shelters/rescues who have been on the front lines of the efforts to help displaced pets.
My thoughts were that, while it is certainly good to give to the larger organizations like HSUS and ASPCA, it can take awhile for those funds to trickle down to the local rescues, if ever. And having personally done work with several small rescues, I know that every dollar counts, especially in a time like this.
Anyone who makes a donation of any amount through this link will be entered to win one of two swag bags created from the items I received at BarkWorld.
Learn all about the drive here:
We've set a goal of $1,500 so that each rescue will get $500. We've only given ourselves this week to meet that goal so we really, really need your help to get the word out.
