Spots and Stripes Bengal Cat Rescue And The Giver Games

Donation to Spots and Stripes Bengal Cat Rescue for the Giver Games

You humans may remember that I’m the only four legged participant in the Giver Games, where we work to spread random acts of kindness.  Each day, we are given a theme and we practice a random act of kindness based around those themes.  I am honored to represent bengal cats and special needs cats for this contest!

On Monday, the theme was DRAW, so I drew a montage of special needs cats and reminded people that these cats are just as loving and fun as any cat without special needs.

Tuesday’s theme was GOLD, so I made my human make some sandwiches to give to the homeless so that he’d obey the golden rule of doing unto others as you would have them do to you.

Yesterday, thanks to your help, I was able to figure out that the theme of the day was KID.  That made it hard for me to figure out exactly what to do in order to perform a random act of kindness around a kid.  I guess I could have given one of the kids in the new condo complex that I live in a head bonk and purr and paw tap, but that would mean my human would have to put me in my cage again.  Like I was going to let that happen without a fight!

But I thought about something.  I told you the sad story about the bengal cat at Spots and Stripes Bengal Cat Rescue who had to go in for emergency treatment dueDonation to Spots and Stripes Bengal Cat Rescue for the Giver Games to complications from her pregnancy.  The story had a happy ending, as she was able to be treated, recover, and kind humans donated enough money to Spots and Stripes to get Mischka home.

By the way, I see that five of you humans who read about Mischka went to the Spots and Stripes donation page.  Purrs, happy meows, and friendly paw taps to you for doing that!

Another pregnant bengal cat named Isis didn’t make it after her pregnancy, and three of her kittens went over the bridge with her.

So I made my human donate $5 for each of the feline kids who didn’t make it plus another $5 for Isis to Spots and Stripes.  I figure it’s the least he can do to help remember those feline kids, and to help Spots and Stripes spread more kindness.

Normally, when I want my human to do something, I need to threaten him with biting.  Not this time. He was very happy to give!

Playing the Giver Games

A friendly paw tap to all of my pawsome human friends.  Today I have exciting news.  I am part of an event that seeks to help spread random acts of kindness.  It’s called the Giver Games.  I am in realm seven, and I am proud to say that I am the only feline playing against a bunch of humans.

The way the Giver Games works is that each day, there is a theme that we focus on.  Once we find out what the theme is, we find a way to do a random act of kindness around that theme.

Yesterday, the theme was DRAW.  Now, I’m smarter than the average cat, and with my extra toes, I can hold a paint brush or pen.  But use it?  I’m afraid I can’t do that.  And when I turned to my human for help, he told me that I was silly.  Draw, he said?  You know I can’t do that, Bagheera.

But I am not a cat that gives up easily, and I wanted to do something today to participate in the Giver Games.

So I thought about what I’ve been able to do.  I’ve been able to bring attention to special needs cats or cats with other needs like me.  And I’ve got pictures of them.

Entry into the Giver GamesSo what I did is put together a montage of four cats that I have written about.  And I thought that I should make my human donate money to help with one of them whose human doesn’t have a lot.

And that’s what I did.  What do you think of this montage of cats I’ve been able to help because of you wonderful humans?  Not to bad for a polydactyl diabetic cat, huh?

I will share the theme of the day with you later.  Once I do, please see if you can practice a random act of kindness around that theme and post your picture to my Facebook wall.  Then I can share it, and we can see how many people like it.

I hope you humans do some wonderful things to spread some kindness in the world and share it with us!
