For the love of cats and kittens

You know we’ve long been a supporter of Natalie at Bee Meadow Farm, and all the work she does with her rescue animals.

If you follow her on Facebook, it will come as no surprise that she’s been racking up some hefty vet bills.

She’s recently taken in a mama with a pile of nursing kittens, a little sweet calico with a hernia, and a handsome ginger named Jim, who’s having some serious skin issues.

She put the call out for donations for gift basket items, etc to help raise some funds to get these fantastic furballs back to health and into their forever homes.

With the move looming, I don’t have time to make anything, so instead, I pulled Queen of the Crossroads from the shop, and offered it up for a fundraising raffle.

Here’s the deal (copied from the Bee Meadow Facebook post)

    I saw Natalie’s post last night. What a beautiful quilt and generous donation! The photos, write-up and all the information was great. I’m guessing you did that. I hope in your move to your new home, you will be closer to Natalie. I would love to live close enough to volunteer as a barn helper.
