charitable purpose

2 Comments

It’s easy to blog when I’m unhappy. My posts are poignant, funny, and frequent. Or, maybe I actually suck at blogging because my posts are nearly a year apart. You decide.

In November, 11 months after submitting my application, the tax agency denied awarding charitable status to my rescue but gave me 60 days to respond to their concerns. Over the next four months, I once again worked my ass off {it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats} going back and forth with them trying to prove that our purpose was “charitable.” At one point, they even re-wrote our charitable purpose and added something that we didn’t even do. In the end, we received our charitable status in February. While that was wonderful news, it just brought on more work for me. Setting up tax receipts and accounts to various online donation platforms and grant writing were added to my daily tasks of managing our spay/neuter program and EVERYTHING ELSE. I’m getting a headache just remembering the last five months!

{it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats, it’s for the cats it’s for the cats…}

I had four cats - now I have six but still no one to talk to, LOL. So, I write this blog to entertain me, myself, and I... and perhaps you.

  1. You know the phrase “no good deed shall go unpunished”? But if cats could be grateful (and I’m not convinced they can be), they’d be grateful. Say hello to your kitties for me.

  2. “As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.” – Cleveland Amory
    As for the human, having cats about is self-care. I also call it F.F.T.T. or Feline Focused Training and Therapy.
    Now my girls, mademoiselle Colette and madame Simone have more to say on the subject and I should never presume to speak for them. http://lesdeuxdivasmavieenrose.wordpress.com
