Mommy!  Back up a little!  I think you are a little too close!

Still a little out of focus, but better!

I am Sam.
Sam I am
Asking if you can lend a hand?
Or a paw?
Depending on who you are.

While it might appear to some
that Chrystal’s Cat House Fund is nearly done.
The reality is that more support is needed than previously stated.
I am sorry to give this information belated.

The Chip In widget shows that the fund has already exceeded
the amount of money that is needed.
The reality is that Chrystal needs more than she asked for
because she didn't want to ask for more.
But Crystal will have to take money out of their nest egg,
that is why I will beg!
Now this egg doesn't come from a bird,
no matter what you might have heard!

I am talking about dollars and cents!
The green papers and the coins, does that make sense?
But we would all like to make things more of an ease
for Chrystal and her hardworking family, who always say please.

So go to the auction that Auntie ML has right HERE!
Or make a donation if a penny or dollar you can spare.
Cause every penny and dollar adds up
and it can never be too much!
There are a lot of mouths to feed and fur to warm at Chrystal's abode!
Without a new Cat House, well their abode might explode!
Due to the amount of furries they help every day, they're sure not lazy
and they never complain, they just work like crazy!

There are many goodies to be had, now would I kid?
Some of the items don't even had a bid!
Also, please visit Chrystal’s blog.
Take a look at the beautiful cats and dogs!
Chrystal and her family are just the best
And to have them as furriends makes us feel blessed.

The CB has done a wonderful job so far in raising funds. We'll see what we can get together when mom gets her green papers next week.

Purring for you, Auntie Deb.

What a great poem my friends, well done.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Dear Sam I am,
the cause is great!
For the result,
we just can't wait!
Crystal has such a BIG heart,
that we should all try and part
wiv some of our cash,
so the noo cat-house can cut a dash,
Then kitties in need can be safe,
and no longer be a homeless waif.

So we'll head over to the auction and take a look,
in every corner and every nook.

Sorry abowt the rhyme,
but every time,
we hear yoo meow or squeak,
we can't hep ourselves, in rhyme we speak!
We know it's outrageous,
but it must be contageous!

Love Milo and Alfie xx

We hope that Chrystal doesn't have to touch her savings! She is such a wonderful person, we hope she gets all the help she needs!

Brian said...

Thanks for the update on what is going on over at the cat house. Sister Sascha sends you purrs Sam!

Sammy and Andy said...

What a worthy cause....we have done what we can for Chrystal.

A bit of trivia....we have a soft spot for anyone named Chrystal, as that is our mama's oldest grandbeans name.....and it's spelled with the CH instead of just a C, also!!!!!!

You are a great poet, Sam I Am.....and our Sam What Am wishes he could be a poet, but alas!!!!!!!

We love y'all so very, very, very much.

Marg said...

Love that poem Sam. We think Chrystal is wonderful too to do all that for all those animals. We are so excited that she has gotten so many adopted out lately. We will try to scare up some more green papers for her. It takes a lot to feed all of us too. Hope all of you have a great week end

Hannah and Lucy said...

We'll wait till mum is asleep and search the bottom of her handbag - there always some cash in there.

We hope this raises lots of green papers for Chrystal! The mom donated/bid in Deb's emerg auction and made a small private donation as well, so unfortunately can't bid further right now, with Annie's vet bills.

Paws crossed for the fundraising, though!

Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with your Coffee) said...

It's hard for me to comment. All I can say is THANK YOU, Deb. Any amount we end up with is money that won't come out of savings, but more importantly it's money that won't come out of the amount needed daily for food, vet care, and spays/neuters. All of you have raised enough now that we are building that cathouse NO MATTER WHAT. Whatever I have to do, you'll be viewing the building process THIS SPRING. I am in awe of the generosity of this community. And I am grateful. I hope everyone who has helped and continues to help will feel a giant sense of satisfaction when they see that building going up.

Oh Sam I Am, yoor poetry is beyootiful...and fur such a great cause!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hey, Deb, Chrystal can remedy that by changing the target amount on her Chip In.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

An adorable kitty who writes great poetry? How could we say no to that?

(we'll tell the Lady to e-mail you mom - purrrrrs!)

Eric and Flynn said...

How could we refuse such a good poem. We will make a donation now before it goes out of mum's mind. (She's old as dirt and her memory is terrible.)

ML said...

O, Sam, what a wonderful poem.
And it 'splains so much.
All is now clear... as Chrystal.
Hee hee.
Love & Purrs,

Eric and Flynn said...

We have given you an award.You can collect it from our blog.

The Island Cats said...

Karen Jo said...

I love your poem, Sam. I need to go check to see how my bid is doing.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I didn't know that you were such a good one for making poems up. Great job! I have already been to the auction and my bid is still tops on what I wanted. Thanks for hosting the auction and extending so more $$$ can be gathered. Hope enough $$$ is there to build the kittie house.

Father Tom said...

A good cause and a great poem, Sam!

We'll be checking things out over at the auction!
