the final hours

One hundred and eighteen thousand, eight hundred.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, seven hundred and ninety-nine.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, seven hundred and ninety-eight.

What's that Peepers? What do mean, what am I doin'?  I'm countin' down! What did you think I was doin', anyway?

You thought I was babbling?  MOUSES!

Silly peep.  I'm countin' down how many seconds are left 'til my promotion month is over.  You know, how many seconds are left for cats and peeps out there to get a copy of Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes and help support the wonderful and amazing Anjellicle Cats Rescue of New York City.

Now where was I...

One hundred and eighteen thousand, six hundred and fifty.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, six hundred and forty-nine.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, six hundred and forty-eight.

What's that Peepers?  You think it's gonna take too long to count by seconds?  THIS is why you, Peepers, are not a world-renowned scientist in the field of whisk time travel technology.  You're simply not a world-renowned scientist like me.

Me?  Hmmm...  Nope, I think it should be I.  Or maybe it is is me.  That's a tough one.  MOUSES!

Anywho...  That doesn't really matter.  What does matter is that I understand 'bout time and stuff.  I understand that countin' down by minutes, every minute, takes the exact same amount of time as countin' down by seconds, every second.  MOUSES!

Gosh, Peepers...  Where did you go to school, anyway?

You did go to school, right?

Just checkin'...

One hundred and eighteen thousand, five hundred. One hundred and eighteen thousand, four hundred and ninety-nine.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, four hundred and ninety-eight.

More questions, Peepers?  MOUSES!

Okay, let me explain in a way you can understand. We're now just shy of thirty-three hours left before it's midnight, Pacific Time, on April 30th,  That's the deadline for a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the book Rescued:  The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes, to go to support the Anjellicle Cats Rescue in New York City.  Whether I count down by hours, minutes or seconds, the actual time remainin', remains the same. MOUSES!

Time always remains the same unless, of course, you're approachin' a black hole or somethin'.  Or in a Tardis.  Or messin' with whisks.  MOUSES!

You're just lucky I'm not countin' down in cat seconds.  To do that, I'd have to multiply everythin' by nine.

Yes, that's right, Peepers.  It's on account of the whole nine lives thing.  Least you got that part right.  Good for you.  You did go to school, after all.

Now where was I?  One hundred and eighteen thou....

Enough with the questions, Peepers!  You made me lose my place...  AGAIN.  MOUSES!

Okay.  Fine.  You win, Peepers.  I'll stop countin' down and just let the clock handle that part.  Your interruptions are drivin' me to distraction.

So here's the deal...

If you wanna help support the Anjellicle Cats Rescue of New York City by buyin' a copy of Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes, you have until midnight April 30th, Pacific Time, to order in a copy or two.  Or three...  Or four?  Maybe even more!

Not know 'bout Anjellicle Cats Rescue?  They're a great group of peeps helpin' save cats' lives in New York City, daily.  Like they say on their website, they're a "no-kill, all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organisation" and a "member of the Mayor's Alliance and a New Hope Partner with the New York Animal Care & Control (ACC)."  Their "goal is to help make New York City a no kill city" and "for over ten years, [their] Hell's Kitchen-based organisation has been a lifeline for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens."  They "work closely with the ACC to pull out those who are in danger of being euthanized. Each one is welcomed with kindness and medical attention, with the goal of placement into a permanent, loving home."

And don't forget 'bout the special paper bein' used to print...

Hmmm...  That'll take too long to explain so let me direct you to the posts about our International Blog Adventure. Remember that? Remember the recent adventure that Savvy, Silver and I took?  We started off on Savvy's blog, Savannah's Paw Tracks where she invented special paper to use for printin' the Rescued book.  Then Silver picked up the story on the DashKitten Blog, and he related how he hacked into the FitCat Publishing computers to make the paper work with their presses.  Finally, I finished up our adventure right here on my blog, Nerissa's Life, with my scorin' a roll of that special paper all for myself.  Well...   not all for myself.  I shared it with my fur-fam, of course.

So that's about it, my friends.  'Bout everythin' I have to say 'bout the Rescued book and my pals over at Anjellicle Cats Rescue and about our adventure and about...

And about the speed at which time travels and how it's constant and whatnot.  Well, providin' there are no whisks involved.  But usually the speed of time is constant.


One hundred and eighteen thousand, two hundred.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, one hundred and ninety-nine.  One hundred and eighteen thousand, one hundred and ninety-eight.

That's right, Peepers.  I've started countin' down again.  Can't help myself.  I like to finish what I start, you see.

You know, I wonder if I should be countin' down in Mississippis.  Mississippies?  Yeah, the plural of one Mississsippi must be two Mississippies, I think. Never even thought about that before.  Gosh, that realisation is a definite MOUSES! moment, for sure.


Please remember that throughout the month of April, a portion of all sales of the book Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes will go to the wonderful Anjellicle Cats Rescue of New York, helpin' them to help save cats' lives.  You can purchase your very own copy at your local book store or on Amazon by clicking right HERE.  You'll wanna stock up for holiday gift-giving, for sure.  PURRS.
