Update:
We're continuing with this thread in 2018!!

It's the time of year when cat lovers come together at TheCatSite and help cats in need! :party2::catrub::lovecat4::jive::dazzler::lovecat3::banana1:

For every positive post in this thread TCS will add 10 cents
to our virtual donation jar!

The more we post in this thread, the more money goes to a cat charity! And we have prizes for the participants too!

Make a round one thousandth post and you'll win an awesome TCS mug! Yup, make post #1000, post #2000 etc and we'll send you a gorgeous cat mug from our store!

New! You can now choose a teeshirt from our Amazon store instead!

To make things fair and fun, members can only win once in this contest. Once a member has won, he/she is more than welcome to keep on posting positively to raise money for a cat charity but if they end up winning the next thousandth post we'll chose the following post as the winner..

Can't think of anything positive to say?


We have a great solution for you! We consider spreading the word about TCS a very positive thing :biggrin: So, if you share any page from this site with your friends via social media, it will count as a positive post for this contest. All you have to do is share it via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit etc and then post a link to the shared post. Just a link will suffice, so we can verify the share.

Which cat charity will the donation go to?


We need your input for that! Would you like to suggest a cat shelter or rescue organization as the beneficiary? Send me a private conversation with your suggestion. They need to be a 501(c) organization and deal directly with cat rescue.

The rules -


1. Positive posts only. Tell us something nice about your day or about the world in general. Forget neutral - spread the joy! If you feel like ranting or venting about something that's, well, not as positive, start a separate thread for that please. If you get confused and post something we don't think is positive, it could end up deleted or moved to its own thread.

You can add neutral content to a positive post (for example, if you have a question about this fundraiser or if you want to respond to a previous post in a neutral way) but please avoid negativity so we don't have to edit it out.

2. Minimum of 15 words per post. Just posting "good morning!" won't qualify for the purpose of this thread and will be deleted. Keep your posts long enough and meaningful. The only exception is sharing a page from TCS on social media - in which case a link to the share is enough.

3. Proper English. Please don't just hit randomly at your keyboard. No gibberish allowed and as with other posts on the site, try to avoid texting abbreviations.

4. Comprehensible posts. Your posts need to make sense. Avoid using automated text generators. It's a babbling thread by nature, but we still expect you to communicate with your fellow members.

5.Original posts only. Please do not copy and paste text from another source. Not even from this site. Not even if you were the author. Just write something fresh for each post in this thread.

6. No consecutive posts. You can't add a reply if yours is the last post in the thread. If anyone starts talking to themselves to speed things up, they risk getting banned from this thread.

I have some news! I woke up this morning to find that all of my foster kittens now have green eyes. The last time I had little kittens their eyes changed from blue to green slowly, but this lot all seem to have changed over night.

Must be a Halloween thing. They all have the most beautiful slate green eyes now.

It's just about cold enough to appreciate having cats in the bed now. During the summer I'd wake up a dozen times a night gasping for breath, but now it's really cozy to have a self-heating fur covered hot water bottle in bed.

Tvis is such a wonderful project, I am honoured to be able to take part in it.
I woke this ninght at around 4 just to find out that Freya, my lovely 7 months old bengal, had decided to curl around my hand purring as if there was nothing better un this world than being next to me, even if I were sleeping. This exhuberant gesture of affection warmed and melted my heart so much that I spent the following half an hour giving her a nice cuddling session.
I wish everyone could feel the way I do when Freya looks at me with absolute love. Maybe one day que will be able to find the right owner for every cat in the world :)

What a great idea for a thread, and I know reading it will be helpful to me not to mention others!

I really hope this earns the 10 cents for the donation jar, as, if you knew what I am going through, I am being very positive right now!
I have just six days left of Milly's enforced crate rest :hyper: :banana2:
and I actually got a full 5 hours of sleep last nite!:woo:

These are both very good things!

:woo: indeed. I slept a little better last night as well.

We had a very bad storm go through our area and many still don't have power. I am very lucky that I never lost power. I'm definitely happy about that.

This is always a great thread! I absolutely love to snuggle with my kitties, especially when it starts getting cold. My 3 boys follow me from room to room while my 2 girls are content just knowing I'm around.

November is my birthday month! Happy Nov 1st y'all :hyper:
