Noll on Charity


Once a year, the closets are turned inside out;
the wardrobe and stacking trays too. 
 It is an interesting time. 
We hears funny comments like,
"The cleaners shrunk my clothes." 

  I especially like to climb into the spaces
 created by this annual, end-of-the-year ritual. 


You can always count on Uncle Keaks
 to do quirky things;
Like a square dance
in a rectangular pine wardrobe.

Three times round, and out he goes!


My Own & her family
might make the donation decisions,
however, my role in this endeavor
 is the most importantest!

I console the gently-loved clothes.  
I snuggle under them, giving comfort.
I rest my Nollie head
upon them one last time. 


Before they are packed up and spirited away
 to a place known as "Goodwill,"I impart a hair or two for remembrance.

Then, I gently pat each one and whisper: 

"There, there, you will find a new home."

Noll what a kind and sentimental cat you are but don't you mind all those carefully designed furry
patterned clothes being sent to someone you don't know. How do you know they will appreciate all your time and trouble doing very
delicate designs? We make sure our servant wears her fur adorned clothes until they fall apart. Whispers: also it means there is more money for treats and toys for us.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Our human always has a pile of clothes and house wares on the go for donation, and because she shops at Value Village too, she sometimes has to put something back on the rack because it was hers to begin with, given back. :-)

It is good to check out all the things as they come in and out of the closet!

The humans here have so much to get rid of, they haven't even gotten to the clothes closet yet!

We like how you furred those clothes up before they left.
