Photoblog #5 - D'Artagnan is Catman, or, Hello, Memory Card!

My camera went and died on me so I went and sent it out to be fixed about two months back, but I stupidly forgot to remove the memory card and I had to go through ninety million different people to convince them to send it back to me. Actually, they sent it out and then the next day I found out my camera was in the "shipping center" ready to be returned.

But I wanted to share this with you:

Yes, that is D'Artagnan. He is all ready for Halloween!

Cassie says he looks like David Boreanaz, the guy currently playing the FBI agent on Bones. That's a great show, but I don't see it.

Do you?

Moving on...

This is what Cassie calls Dixie Hiccup's professional shot. It's truly not professional. I'm the one one that took it.

I'll post more soon.

The Return of Buster!

**Scroll down three posts for CARNIVAL OF THE CATS**

Buster's back where she belongs.

Post's up, ready to go!

From the Misunderstood Mind of Buster.



**Scroll down two posts for CARNIVAL OF THE CATS.**

I kind of feel like it's the end of an era here...

No, we're still not sure about the future of Cat Philanthropy, but I still have news to share. I suppose this can be considered good news, but it still feels a bit melancholy.

Buster's humor blog is back as "misunderstood" instead of "misguided" but please give me a day or so to post.

D'Artagnan's new blog is up; a post is already there. It's entirely about his overprotective nature. Feedback on the theme would really be appreciated.

Cocoa Posts! is still up and I will be updating it as soon as I can.

I will make certain I post on Buster's, D'Artagnan's, Cocoa's or all blogs if Cat Philanthropy has to close. If that happens, it will be back, I promise.

Thank you all so much for the support!

Support Adventures in Cat Philanthropy

(Scroll to next post for Carnival.)
Cassie created this nifty sign for all Cat Philanthropy supporters. She says, "For all of you in the Cat Blogosphere who are friends of Cat Philanthropy, take the badge! Show your support and keep Lily's blog where it is, which is where it rightfully should stay!"

Thank you, Cassie!

Also, thank you to everyone on the Blogosphere who has been so supportive first though the hate mail and now through this! I never thought when I started Cat Philanthropy that I would end up making so many friends, but I have and I am so glad I did. You are a buoying network of support. We still don't have the verdict on whether it's safe enough for my blog to stay, but, regardless of the future of the current blog, Cat Philanthropy is coming back, perhaps not at the same URL or as Adventures in Cat Philanthropy, but we will return, bigger and better than before.

Welcome to the Carnival of the Cats here at Cat Philanthropy!

Er, well, not exactly here.

1. Please, please, turn your speakers on!

2. Follow the order of the posts. They were posted like that for a reason.

3. Click here.

Thank you!

-Lily and the Feline Five

Lots of News

Someone definitely breached Cocoa's account and I was advised to close down the majority of the accounts and the blogs attached to them.

Here's what's going to happen.

1. If you come back at 3 o'clock EST, the CotC will be here. I cannot guarantee it will still be here tomorrow, but it will be here today.

2. Buster's blog will be coming back.

3. Cocoa's blog will be coming back.

4. I may have to close down Adventures in Cat Philanthropy. Don't worry - it's going to come back bigger and stronger. If you can't get in here, check the Cat Blogosphere. I'll post the new web address as soon as I have it.

Please do not email any of the cats right now; their accounts have been deleted. You can email me at If the blog is gone, though, it's likely my email will be gone, too. I will post that it's gone on the Blogosphere also.

I really hope you all have enjoyed Cat Philanthropy and will come back to my second blog if I have to close this one down.

To everyone who got a comment or a message or an email or anything saything that there was going to be a blog-trashing party here:




I am not going out of town, I am not going anywhere. I just saw on Shadow's blog a comment that there's going to be a blog trashing party here.

All I can guess is that someone broke into Cocoa's blogger account.

But, to be clear again:



I need to resolve this ASAP.

Happy Gotcha Day, Dixie Hiccup!

On this day, two years ago, a small, white poof was found in the grass beneath Cassie's family's water meter.

The poof is no longer small; in fact, she's quite large. Now she has a name and a forever family.

Happy Gotcha Day, Dixie!

When I get Cassie's photos of Dixie in party mode, I will definitely post them. Cassie bought her this bedazzly party hat, only it was too heavy for her head, so she substituted a little pink paper candy cup. She looks like a feline genie and she is not a happy cat.


P.S. The Carnival opens tomorrow at 3 PM EST.

Buster's Blog

I have made myself sick from worrying about the carnival and, because school is out and I really don't have anything to throw myself into at the moment, I did another blog, this one for Buster. It's a humor blog.

From the Misguided Mind of Buster.

See it. Read it. Maybe laugh? Just a little? Okay, a smile will do.

If you are planning a visit to Cat Philanthropy late this week before the blog is ready for the Carnival (which should begin about 3:00 EST Sunday), I beg you to wait.

Cat Philanthropy will go through some big changes and I really want it to be a surprise for all the people who come on Sunday, so I may just restrict the blog Saturday and possibly Friday, too. If you come and are blocked out, this is why. I will remove this restriction right before the carnival starts.

And, remember, when you come Sunday, turn your speakers on!
