Rewards Update and A New Look for the outside of the CATBUS!

Greetings Cat Fans and supporters of our endeavor.

The cats just finished the maiden voyage with the new bus and there are a few glitches we need to work out, but other than that, the trip was a success!  And we owe it all to you fans that contributed to our cause.  During the tour we traveled with 6 foster kittens and are happy to announce that they all found homes in time for the Holiday...Including Cheese-doodle, Pickles, Cleo-catra, Maki, Minnie and Bowie.   When things have settled a bit, I will open my home to some more needy kitties.

I know some of you have received rewards and some are still waiting.  Unfortunately the hoodies were not made in time and I am currently looking for someone else to finish what was supposed to be done 4 weeks ago.  Sorry folks. I promise you will have them before winter ends.

The $100 and up packages are being put together and completed after the Holiday and a little much needed rest.(end of January if all goes well)  The rest of the Tote bags finally arrived and I am matching up T-Shirt sizes so I can get them all out together.  Thank you for your patience and if you have not emailed me your shirt size, please do so at samantha@amazinganimals.biz.         I also finally made some 'Tuna Tickets' to include in the packages that I am shipping out, for those whom have free tickets coming.  If for some reason you are missing something, please email me and I will correct it as soon as possible.  With the cats as my main 'team' for doing all of this, things get a little scattered with their 'help'.  You can also text me at 773-391-3357

The Paw-Cassos will be in the works soon and I will post pictures of the cats attempting an artistry.  Who knows, some of them may have a hidden talent.

Some EXCITING mews is that we finally got the outside of the bus looking as sweet as the inside. These cats are riding in style inside and out now, thanks to all of you whom have supported them.  Check out the pictures of what hopefully will be driving to a city near you in 2013.

One last note.  I am currently hiring experienced bus drivers to help us get from one venue to the next (the longer drives of 5 hours or longer).  The bus is quite a handful and we are towing a car behind to hold what the bus can't.  When I get our new schedule I will post cities and dates for anyone interested in the job

Also taking applications for cat assistants.  Train Cats, Scoop Boxes and see the world!  Looking at 2 months on and one month off.  Must have animal care experience, as the care of the kitties are just as important (if not more) as the training and stage time. If you are interested I will be trying people out on two shorter runs in March and April and training during Feb and March in Pigeon Forge TN.  Also if you are interested in volunteering as our third person when we come to you city, let us know that too!  You can help us sell cat ears and possibly be on stage.

That is it for now.. Happy Mew Year!  and enjoy the pictures.

Samantha, Tuna and the gang

      Wow what a fantastic bus! Great job, I'm sure the kitties are pleased. Can't wait to see it cruising through Louisville in 2013!

      It's amazing what you've been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. I'm so pleased to have been a part of this fund-raiser.
