Tons of snow has shown up early for Felix Shelter. Unfortunately, all of the repairs haven't been finished yet and it's difficult just getting the kittie's food delivered. Many of the roads there are impassable in snow this deep. Tarps have been put in place to keep some of the cold out of the cat room that's still in the works. If you're stuck on a charity to give to, or need a last minute gift for someone, please consider giving Felix Shelter a helping hand. If you're strapped for cash, like most of us this time of year, sharing on Care2, Facebooks or Tweeting is also a huge help!!! Happy Holidays everybody, you all rock!

Thank you Kim...Just before I opened your card I did see that Henriette had also forwarded an A Card from you that was forwarded to me by another friend. During the "Christmas Season" tis a outstanding time to help with even $5.00 whatever you can do to help "Worthly" causes for our creatures in dire need.

Finances are tight for me and don't use Pay Pal and was looking for an address to write a check, caught the E-mail, btw, reading the article posted Kim I want tons of them shipped out so adorable. Love Cats.

Thank you, I will also forward for help

I also submitted this appeal for help help one day ago: Will try to spread the word further by sharing it with my friends.
Hope all the kitties will be just fine, as, of course, winter always represents a difficult time.

Kim, I thought I was going to be so smart and post a petition since your news inspired me. We first one I did and backfired. Video didn't work and if you go to the petition site you can post your link in there since I can't get it flipping off! The edit and rest of the words never came through. Oh well dear friend. I did try! Hugs,

i don't get it. the harmony fund just posted on fb last night that they're helping her with two grants specifically for the roof. i re-posted thinking this was great news. don't tell me it fell through.

Noted, tweeted, and shared. I am sad, but I donate to so many animal causes that it is impossible to add any more during this expensive season. Too bad that once we donate; the same charities keep coming back not annually, but monthly. For those of us who are retired, it's a difficult decision to keep on donating or quit donating completely. My love for animals and my conscience keeps me donating, and my husband keeps a careful watch so we won't be eating cat food ourselves.

Noted and shared with my contacts. I perfectly understand the situation, I take care of a colony of stray from years and now I'm fighting with the burocracy to move them in a shelter. This colony is in a "public area" so is difficult for me to handle the situation. Unfortunately this year I guess that somebody someone has abandoned cats not spayed and I don't know yet how many kitties were born. I can't permit to this creatures to remain there, they need a place to stay and of course to be sterilized. The only thing that I am committed to doing every day, including Christmas, is to bring them food and keep fighting for their rights. So I understand the situation very well. Thanks Kim.

Considering that our intellectual level is superior to our animal cousins, it is contingent on humans to care for their safety.
This is not an arduous situation, just a thoughtful process.

noted and unfortunately cant donate..although hearing about the new law in Serbia and whats happenng with the strays i wish I could.

They need to enforce spaying and neutering cuz the animals are paying the price..
Bless all the shelters and rescues who pick up the slack for irresponsible people

thx Kim

The Harmony Fund posted a similar story at 11:47 last night, and said they had sent money the night before (Wednesday night) and said they will be will be sending more at the months end...
They are sending money to many shelters hit by the snow in various countries, and there has been no update that anything has fallen through.
I know Felix and other shelters are always in true need of funds, but I also think news like that should be included in these stories as so many of us wrestle with the dilemma of who to donate to, and current info and updates help us do that.

There is no disrespect intended here...Sorry I couldn't say this more graciously as other (s) did
Thanks for the post Kim ♥

yes ellen, when you're on facebook, you see animals and caregivers that have it even worse on a daily basis. i try to give a bit to everyone, but i definitely give more to those in a real crisis.

Last mount I sent to Danica a small donation, posted on my blog click-to-donate Felix Shelter and I will share with my friends in Serbia.

Kim, you are an angel! I can't thank you enough for helping Felix kitties, also big thanks to Sylvie for her post and Henriette for the forward.

Serbian Animals Voice posted news about Felix Shelter at the front page

Hi Mary! If you like you can do an electronic transfer at the bank. I'll put in the link to Danica's info here...

Danica did get a donation from Harmony Fund with another on the way, but it still leaves her hugely in debt for all of the other repairs and a lot of the roof repairs. Donations are few and far between and the daily cost of maintaining these kitties alone is huge. Not even to mention the constant vet bills on top of that. The repairs still haven't been finished and I think she could use some help. Everyone's free to donate to whatever charity they like, whether it's Felix or some place that's worse.
