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:
Winners, when you have a chance please send your full name and ship-to address to LynnViehl@aol.com 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.
