|Jamie is one lucky kitty!|
Jamie the kitty is going from Greenville, SC all the way to Hollywood, FL today -- 744 miles total!
Jamie was dumped, confused and crying, outside a dog shelter in Greenville, SC and a friend of a friend of Cute took him in and rescued him... and set out to find him the perfect forever home.
Word spread far and wide, led by our good bloggy buddies Brian's Home and Mario's Meowsings. And a miracle came in the form of another friend of Cute -- the woman who's cat tweets as @MizzBassie on Twitter said she would adopt him!
Now we just had to get Jamie from South Carolina to South Florida! They asked if I could help arrange transport, and of course I said yes! I just knew we Cuteheads could help make it happen. And it did!
Today Jamie is leaving Greenville early in the morning and will have a long day and a long road trip, with nine different people helping him get home. I am always so awed and thankful that we have such a fabulous community here among us. This couldn't have happened without everyone's help!
I'll be doing the last leg of the journey and get the pleasure of delivering Jamie to his new mom, a lovely woman who I've know through Twitter and blogs for years but have never gotten to meet. I'm so happy she is adopting Jamie. I know he will have the best home!

HUGE thank you to Terry F., Melanie M., Georgia M., Debra S., Sharon S., Trish W., Carol P. for volunteering to help drive Jamie today -- and especially Magda (@MizzBassie's mom!) for adopting him!
P.S. Pimp has a vet appointment today. He has decided he doesn't like the prescription food he's eating to manage his hyperthyroid and has been getting into Moo's food on the sly. I know his levels are off because he's lost a little weight, so we're going in to see about medication instead of the food. I really don't want to do that to him every day, but we have to do what we have to do! I'll keep you all posted on that, too.
P.P.S. If you'd like to volunteer for future transports (please!), please fill out this short form, which just gives me your name and what city you live in and how far you'd be willing to drive. That way, when the next one comes up (I think we're going to need to get a kitty to Michigan really soon, hint, hint!), then I can see who is in the areas we'll be driving to and reach out for help. THANK YOU! Here is the link to the form: http://bit.ly/cutetransport
