Surprise for Jan and CB Auction

 Hey, Percy here with some good news.

We Funny Farmers held a meeting and decided we all feel a twinge of guilt because we couldn't afford to get Jan a present for Christmas, and although we tried - we really tried to be good for just that one day, we didn't quite manage to.

We wanted to do something nice for her but we were stumped until my nimble paws found the perfect belated gift for Jan. She's always complaining Sam and Buddy "killed" her mattress and it's so uncomfortable for her to sleep on it any more. We find it very comfortable, but if it's a problem for her, we decided we'll see what we can do to make her happy.

While I was window shopping on the internet yesterday, I found some neat beds.

Merci and Cameron thought a nice round one would do but Cotton pointed out that we'd have to buy at least 3 or 4 for Jan since she's much taller than any of us, except Sam when he stands on his hind legs, and her bones creak when she tries to curl up in a ball like we often do when we sleep. Well, actually, it's more like they creak when she tries to uncurl from a ball.

Cyndi and Rusty suggested we get her a long mattress and bed in one. The longest is only 5' long, though. Her feet would hang over. We considered buying one long and one small but we're not sure how we're going to pay for one, so two is definitely out of the question. She could always wear a couple extra pairs of socks in the winter.

Getting Jan a new mattress bed would be the perfect solution for all of us. Jan could sleep on her new bed in the living room in front of the gas space heater and Sam, Buddy, me and whatever furries wanted to could squeeze onto her old bed.

Jan is going to be so excited when the new pet bed .... um, the new mattress bed arrives. We can order it just as soon as we figure out how to pay for it. Wonder if Jan has any money in her wallet yet? Excuse us, we need to go check.

The Furriends of The Cat Blogosphere Auction to help Mom Paula with Truffle's lady surgery has started.   If you'd like to help spread the word, grab the graphic above or from our sidebar.  Truffle blogs at Sweet Purrfections

Jan redecorated our blog recently and she redecorated the auction blog yesterday.  She's available to help redecorate your blog  - header and/or background - or make a graphic such as this one for Truffle for a donation to our Food & Fitness Fund.


  1. Awwwww Percy! You are so gorgeous! Me and Charlie hope Jan gets a new mattress! You are all so wonderful!

    Your new look blog is very pretty - we love the pink shades! Take care

  2. We hope you can get Jan that new mattress. That is one thing that is very good for the humans to have - good rest is very important.

    Good to see you, Percy. We love those stripes around your neck.

  3. Our mom needs a new mattress too--we hope Jan can manage to get one.

    We'll check out the auction, though we had made a small donation already. Once again, we're amazed at how much LESS expensive vet costs seem to be in the U.S.! Here, for a spaying and all the blood work, etc., it would be at least double what mom Paula will have to pay. Scary.

  4. IT sounds like a lovely mattress. Sometimes it's fun to hang your feet over the edge. Humans should learn that...

  5. We hope Jan gets her new bed. Humans get grumpy if they don't sleep well.

  6. A new mattress sounds like the purrfect plan to me too! Just make sure it's properly furred!!!

  7. Hey Percy!! A bed for Jan is a most thoughtful present!!!! We purr you get it soon ;) New beds are SO comfy,heeheehee
    Oh yeah...we love your pawsome markings!!!!! Nice! Very nice ;)

    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

  8. Percy, you are so sweet for thinking about Momma Jan and how to make her comfortable. Just snuggle all around her and keep her warm. That will make her hap-pee for sure!


  9. Funny Farmers, you all are so considerate finding that uh "mattress" for Jan. As far as the green papers, you needs to set up a printing press and make your own(that's what I do). Have a great weekend folks.

  10. Well how nice that you all want to get Jan a new mattress! But somehow we think that mattress will be for all of you too!!

  11. We hope Jan can get the new mattress!!
    We need some new ones over here!


  12. Hope Jan gets a new mattress. Purrs!

  13. A new bed for Jan is a great idea! She's going to love it (and so are all of you, MOL)!

  14. Keep your eyes open fur a BOGO on the mattress...

    I think we khould use one here too!


  15. I hope you find a way to get that new matress for Jan!
    She will love that!
    Happy weekend!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. HI think Jan should be happy with a 5ft mattress if you provide socks and also pay for physio for her when she tries to uncurl :))). Very generous guys x

  17. A new mattress sounds like a great present and I hope you can get one soon. You all keep curling around Jan in the meantime and help keep her comfy.. Hugs GJ xx

  18. You just need one of those plastic card thingies and then you can get it. I recommend using someone elses. Anyone will do. They wont notice cos them cards is magic.
