When you care enough to send the very best




As many of you know, I work for Hallmark Cards. One of the things I have learned through this experience is how very important the human connection is.

Reaching out to others in times of crisis and loss...that helps you heal. And if there's one person I know who needs healing right now, it's Kathi.

One very inexpensive way you can help Kathi is to let her know she's not alone. If you're interested, you can send her a card or a gift, or send CJ a bag of treats or a nip mousie, to this address:


Kathi McKinley & CJ
P.O. Box 11653
Shawnee Mission, KS 66207

More updates later. Many many thanks now.

Just wanted to say...this community has been so amazing. You are "The Very Best"! 
THANK you, thank you, for the incredible gestures of love we have witnessed.

  2. Thank you so much for this update. I'll send off a card with a personal note to her today. The poor girl - she has been thru so very much. We do hope CJ will continue to improve and get better and better every day so he once again looks to be the handsome mancat he once was.

  6. Thank you so much for an address! I grew up in K.C. and anything that happens there still to this day, still affects me, especially now when it happens to any of our kitty friends.

    P.S. Our mom's uncle worked for Hallmark Cards too there in K.C.

    1. Yes! People at Wayside said, 'but wait! You keep calling CJ a boy and he has 3 colors!' We told them tonight - no, the orange is burnt fur... :-(

  10. Poor CJ. We're going to send CJ a little something from all of us here. It will take a while to get there (approximately 2 weeks), but we hope it would cheer CJ up a little (and Kathi too).
    Thanks for the updates.

  11. I told my Human to go chip in a little so she did. As beautiful as CJ was before, we think he is even MORE beautiful now, charred fur and all, because he SURVIVED!

  13. Spitty is right. CJ has beauty because he survived. Hang in there CJ, and Kathi, and Seabasscat and his Mom.

  16. When another one of catblogosphere members had a fire and lost everything, they made an Amazon wish list of necessities (litter boxes, beds, toys, blankets, food, etc) that they needed and gave us the link to it. We were able to buy one or two things and it shipped directly to them. Maybe your friends could do the same, and we could get them some much needed supplies.
