Sometimes they complain 'cause one of us - my Auntie Blossom - is yellin' at 'em. Sometimes they complain 'cause one of us - not me - missed the litter box. Sometimes they complain about the weather. Actually, they complain about the weather a lot but then, I often complain about the weather myself so I can't really hold that one against them. Oh, and sometimes they complain about other people complaining. Interesting...
You see, my two personal peeps aren't the only peeps who complain. Peeps all over the world complain about all sorts of things. Sometimes I have to wonder how the peep population ever gets anything done. I mean... if they're so preoccupied with complaining, how do they ever have any energy left over to solve whatever the problem is about which they're complaining? Perhaps that's part of the problem.
Have you ever noticed how a lot of peeps like to complain about homeless cats? They complain and complain and complain. They complain so much that you'd think, by now, this problem would have been solved. There are so many peeps out there who spend so much time and energy complaining about homeless cats that you'd think, by now, all those complainin' peeps would have adopted a cat or two, had them spayed and neutered and really made a dent in the homeless cat population. Or if they couldn't actually adopt a kitty themselves, they could have helped someone else do so or helped a rescue raise money for finding kitties homes or fostered kitties that needed fostering or volunteered with a local TNR program or... or... the list goes on and on. There are so many ways in which these complainin' peeps could help but far too many of 'em would rather just complain.
My gosh, some of these complaining peeps even complain about the peeps who are workin' hard to solve the problem! They're just never happy, I guess but I can understand why. If all the homeless kitties had homes, about what would these complaining peeps complain? The weather?
I suspect these types of peeps are the same types of peep who are always tryin' to miss buses. You've heard that sayin', haven't you? That sayin' about the peep who was never happier than when she missed the bus? I guess that for some peeps, complaining about missin' the bus is more fun that gettin' on that bus and going where they wanted to go. MOUSES!
Anywho... I know that peeps who read my blog are not the complainin' type. At least not the complaining about homeless kitties type. My readers are far more of the doin' type. The type of peeps who direct their energies into doin' good and making things better for all the kitties out there who need our help.
And as luck would have it, I just happen to have a way for all my readers to help out in a really productive way and do a whole lot of good for a whole lot of kitties.
There's this group of peeps right here in Nova Scotia called Emily's Place Spay and Neuter Outreach Society. I've never met 'em as they're in Amherst which is pretty far away but I've heard amazing things about 'em. They help other peeps get their kitties spayed and neutered. Sometimes peeps need help payin' for the operation. Well, Emily's Place helps them do that. Sometimes peeps need help gettin' their kitties to the doctor to have the operation. Well, Emily's Place helps 'em do that, too. They do whatever it takes to help the peeps in their community help the kitties. It's WONDERFUL!
The peeps at Emily's Place Spay and Neuter Outreach Society created an amazin' video explaining exactly what their group does. I'm so pleased that they said it would be okay for me to share it with everyone. You have got to check it out. I think it's gonna be an Oscar contender for sure.
Lately, I've been doin' my bit to help out at Emily's Place. Once I found out that they were in the running for a grant from the AVIVA Fund, I started helpin' them right away 'cause that's what a civic-minded kitty such as myself does... help. And all I had to do was vote for them. AND VOTE I DID. I voted every single day and asked my pals to vote for 'em, too and before I knew it, Emily's Place Spay and Neuter had made it into the semi-finals. Yoo-hoo! YOO-HOO!!!
But now, Emily's Place has to make it through the next round which is the hardest round so far so they really need the help and support of all of us in the blogosphere. The semi-finals begin tomorrow and they've gotta be in the top ten, vote-wise, to get into the finals. They need our votes now more than they ever needed 'em before.
But it's so easy to help. So very, very easy. All you need do is vote! How easy is that?
Starting tomorrow, December 2nd, you can VOTE DAILY for Emily's Place Spay and Neuter Outreach Society. All it takes is a click or two. A click or two, every day for ten days. That's all. That's it. It's as easy as pie. Just click on this here word, AVIVA to vote or go to the Emily's Place Spay and Neuter's FACEBOOK PAGE and link up from there. Either way, you're gonna have to "register" to vote but don't worry, it's not hard. Believe you me, if my peep could figure it out, ANYONE could figure it out. You can register either through Facebook or your regular e-mail and Aviva will send you a confirmation e-mail back so you'll wanna check out your junk and spam folders 'cause stuff that sometimes gets put in those. Don't know why. It just does.
Anywho... I'm asking, pleading and begging here. I'm begging that all my pals vote for Emily's Place Spay and Neuter Outreach Society, DAILY for ten days, starting tomorrow. Amherst, Nova Scotia is a small community in a small province so we really need help from peeps all over the world to make it to the finals. Please-oh-please-oh-please... Please vote for Emily's Place and get your pals to do so, too. It's such a great cause. Your votes will make a world of difference for the kitties of Amherst. They really will. Really and truly. Your votes will make a difference, for sure.
