I think the Cool Cats giveaway will end up being my favorite PBW post of the year. Not because of what I wrote, but because of what you all told us about the pets you've loved. There is so much love in these comments, it's making me tear up again just typing that.

We got the magic hat working, and the winners of the giveaway are:

Juanita Olson

M. Powell


Winners, when you have a chance please send your full name and ship-to address to so I can get these books out to you. Please also let me know if you'd like both of Sofie's books.

While reading through the comments I discovered Darlene Ryan (aka Sofie Kelly) stopped in to add her own donation pledge for this post, and I want to thank her for her generosity. You make Owen and Hercules proud, lady.

As for the rest of you, you were so honest and eloquent that I've decided in your honor to up my donation to $2.00 per comment to Bideawee, so they will be getting a check for $106.00 from me. I also think your little pals were as blessed to have you as you were to have them. My heartfelt thanks to everyone for sharing your stories with us.


  1. Congrats to the winners, especially the shelter :). I enjoyed reading everyone's stories as well.

  2. Thank you so much, Lynn! And yes, congrats to the shelter.

    Congrats as well to everyone who posted who has had the privilege of sharing their life with a beloved pet.

  3. Absolutely thank you, Lynn. And thank you to everyone who commented. When I went to Feline Rescue's site to make my donation I discovered that an anonymous benefactor is matching all donation made until the end of the day, so my $53 is in fact a $106 donation.

  4. Congrats winners!
    Loved reading every one of the stories. This was a great idea for a post/contest Lynn and for being so generous to Bideawee. I think you made a lot of people smile while they reminisced about beloved fur babies, making all of us winners.

  5. This handbag look really nice, good handwork !
