RIP Tree of Pain

Today my Tree of Pain started a new life. A life without me. It moved to Jersey City to become part of the A Call 4 Paws family. I hope it'll make those rescue kitties as happy as it's made me over the past four years. We sent it off along with lots of other donations. Mostly MY stuff, might I add. In the bottom photo, you can see how happy it made Linda. She said because of my donations and fundraising for them, it's enabled the kittehs at A Call 4 Paws to eat high-end food. And, yes, she finally found someone to look after the residents of the cat sanctuary.

It was my fave place to play rockets.


Over the years, TW has taken hundreds of pictures of me and my Tree of Pain.

Good bye, friend. You served me well. I hope the Tower of Power will pick up some of the slack.

CK what a generous thing for you to do! We know you'll break in the ToP quite well (version 2, as opposed to ToP ver. 1)!

Thats a great new life for the Tree of Pain to help all those kitties in the shelter and so good for the rescue kitties to get yummy food too.

you and your mom are so generous CK *pawhugs*

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

No no no no no! Spitty has magical Sundays which add up to about 38 hours because they extend from 6 p.m. Caturday to about 8 a.m. Monday morning. The first 15 or so he spent cuddling on the Blue Pillow with YOU, Darling CK, and then the next 15 he spent in a Maryland Pet Smart.
It is all a magical formula which only he understands and he is not able to explain. Now, calm down, my sweet, and don't work yourself into a bother---well, go ahead, you're smexay when you go a little postal. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh CK how dear of you to do that. But that's just like you. <3
