Saturday was the last day of my vacation and I spent Saturday night lying on my bed watching videos until I fell asleep. I never turned the computer on Saturday at all. When I got back online, I was shocked and horrified to learn that Monty Q's sweet little Sprout had gone to Heaven. I was too overwhelmed to blog about it last night, so I am doing it now. I had a lot of time at work tonight to think about what I would write. I could try to put into words how sad I am that this happened, but that would take a much better writer than I am to express just how I am feeling and how sorrowful I am for Sprout's family. I could rant and rail about just how unfair life can be, but that really wouldn't do any good. I decided the best thing I could do would be to help the Cat Blogsphere spread the word about what you can do to help.
Millie's Mom Lynne is Sprout's godmother and really needs to go to the funeral, but she doesn't have enough green papers. You can donate at the Cat Blogosphere here. You can join in Beau's auction here. You can join in Grr, Midnight and Cocoa's auction here. Any funds left over will go toward Sprout's medical bills. At the same Cat Blogsphere link, you can find out how to send a scrap of fabric with your name and the names of your furries to make a wrap to wrap little Sprout in, which is a request from Sprout's Mom, Tracey. Here, you can find a link to light a candle for Sprout and find out how to send a card to Monty Q's family.
I hope that this will help any of you with that devastating "Oh, this is so sad, but what can I do?" feeling.
