Rainbow Bridge Stars

We have a very important announcement today, and we hope you will like it.  I, Punapippuri,  King Kitty Cat of Finland (North), wish to announce a new project:  for charity, and also as a memorial for all our beloved friends who have gone before.

We would like to present:


We want to set up a blog, where you can get your beloved pet commemorated by naming a star for them, for a small donation to a charity - the Marley Fund.   If you go to the Rainbow Bridge Stars website, there's more information there including a form to fill in to send to Äiti who will find a star, allocate it, send you a certificate (electronically) and put a memorial post on the blog for you. 

We got this idea when someone named a star over our much missed ginger super mancat Eric from Two Devon Cats . We then got to thinking: none of these star names are officially recognised scientifically and companies just make money from people buying names - which is a lovely idea - so why not do some money raising of our own for a charity ?  Äiti will put in the time and effort, and maybe you, loyal readers would like to join in and cover the heavens with our memories as Those Who Have Gone Before shine forever in the sky, amongst the tails of the flickering northern lights.  

All money will go to the charity - none of us will benefit in any way from extra treats through this venture.

Well, I think perhaps there SHOULD be an extra treat here and there (at Aiti's expense of course) for you good kitties who help her with all the work involved in the new venture. So never say, No extra treats! Horrors!

Oh, and P.S. The Human says it makes her heart happy to go visit Mr. Teeth and Clarkie on their Star Page.

I am so happy to see that you have gotten this project underway! It is a lovely idea and I think way better than the for-profit star companies.

We love this! But surely there could be an extra treat or two in it for you?

Mum and I are so glad you went ahead with this lovely project. Of course we will be sending a form to Aiti for our much loved and missed Eric.

What a great idea! We're going to get Mom to do one for Sniffie and Tamir.

That's a wonderful way to fund-raise! We hope it's hugely successful!
