Pawprints for ever on the Rainbow Bridge, the gateway to your heart. We will wait for you there.

or shorter version...............Pawprints in your heart until we meet again on the Rainbow Bridge.

How many words can it take?

How many squares are there left?

Due to the shape of the running shirt (rounded collar) there will be a 3 inch gap running across it.
I think it will be nice to have a few words printed within this gap. Maybe something about Rainbow Bridge? Has anyone got any ideas (a box of c hocs will be sent to whoever comes up with the best suggestion!!!!)

Please type your ideas in this thread or on cat chat.

Come on folks 19 squares available for sponsorship and 8 free square available for children (John has paid the sponsorship for these squares).

If you know anyone wants to sponsor, or any kids that want a free square, please let John know - ASAP before they all go.

that photo size will be perfect.

at the moment im basing the square size on the assumption that all 100 squares get taken.

the printing area on the front of my running shirt measure 50cm long by 30cm wide. I have divided this into 50 squares measuring 5cm up by 6cm across.
the printing are on the back is the same. this gives me 100 squares.

each £2 donation receives a square. some people have requested more than one square so that their photo is a bit bigger. (for example, a £8 donation receives 4 squares together making one larger square)

i have reserved 10 squares for children who have lost their cats. they are getting their photos squares for free (i am paying their donations).

I was wondering purely to make the email smaller, would 500kb be ok for printing quality

Also, what size do the squares equal on the shirt?  :thanks:

Hi John,

I have alerted Tan (She's in charge of the site and donations etc) to your thread and question about donating to Purrs.  So I'm sure she will get back to you ASAP.

Hi Jon and welcome to Purrs.  I think what you are doing is wonderful and I will try to send you a photo (maybe 2 if you have space on your T shirt) at the weekend.

My boss has phoned me to ask how I am doing with the sponsorship, and I mentioned to him about this website.
He has made a offer to donate some money to Purrs.
Basically for every one who takes up a £2 square on my shirt he will donate £1 to purrs. This is quite generous of him as he is already giving £2 per square to Farplace Animal Rescue.
So if I can get the shirt covered (all 100 squares) then Farplace will receive £200 and Purrs £100.
(I think my boss is a bit of a cat lover at heart but being a cold-nosed business man he probably wouldnt admit it!!!)


Please note : could someone at Purrs please email me at jontaylor9[at]aol.com with details on the best way for my boss to send you some money.

Ive just spent the last hour reading through threads on purrs and i agree it is a great site. I can see myself spending many hours on here.
ive only got a handful of people signed up to have their cat photos & message printed on my running shirt. if theres anything you can do to put the word around I would be grateful. I am hoping to fill the shirt with our cat photos.
(if there's any young kids who want their cat photos on the shirt and they cant afford the sponsor money then I am willing to pay their bit myself).

CatChat is the spiritual home for a lot of the Purrs members ... Purrs was created as a direct result of CatChat closing it's forum hence why we have such close links with them.  CatChat is now aimed more towards helping people with their feline health issues and of the course the very important work of rehoming kitties.

Whereas Purrs has sections to chat about so many different things (not just cat) I hope you decide to remain a regular visitor here as, like CatChat, it is an incredibly friendly forum which does wonderful work in raising funds for UK Cat rescues.

Can I please mention, if people donate £2 by bank transfer, can they please email me with their cats photo & message at jontaylor93(at)aol.com.

If anyone perfers to post £2 to me, then feel free to email me for postal details at the same email address.

For your £2 you will get (1) your cats photo & a message printed on my running shirt in the Great North Run, (2) a photo of me in the shirt showing your cats photo & message emailed to you when I get the shirt printed at the end of July (3) the knowledge that you have donated to a worthwhile animal rescue place (4) and also a bit of fun knowing that your cats photo is being run round the Great North Run course whilst the race is live on TV.

Please help by donating £2

Hadnt realised that their site was down :(

They have a great dog and cat rescue facility.
I was drawn to them because (1) of their work with cats,  (2) because they were able to provide me with a guarenteed place in the Great North Run and (3) because they are relatively local to me.

Hopefully their site will be up and running soon. Also, if you want to contact them to confirm my place in the run etc, then that is ok with me.

no, thats the bank account to pay for the photos & messages to be printed on the running shirt.
for everyone that agree to donate £2 the company I work for will donate £2 to Farplace to be given in a cheque presentation (upto a total of £200).

so basically, for every one that donates £2, Farplace gets £2

Thanks.
Im hoping that I can fill all 100 places on the shirt then my boss will donate the full £200 to Farplace.
Anything you can help to put the word round will be appreciated (I dread only getting 3 or 4 people signing up). It only costs them £2 and I will send them a photo of their cats pic & message on the shirt.

A word of caution: are those your bank account and other personal details?  If so, I suggest we take them off the public forum and any members wishing to sponsor you can email you direct.

Charity Run for Animal Rescue Place

(Some of you may know me from catchat forum, here are the details of a charity run i am doing and how you can help).

For my charity run this year I am raising funds for Farplace Animal Rescue (Durham). Any help in sponsoring me will be greatly appreciated.
I have done a charity run every year since I lost my wife and daughter 12 years ago. This is the first time I have run on behalf of a Animal Rescue place.
Due to the death of my beloved Sam on 27th June I will be wearing a Tshirt with a small photo him on the front.
Anyone who sponsors me can also have a small picture of their cat on my running shirt along with a message of your choice to your cat. (You will need to email me the cat photo in jpeg form).
To have your cats photo and message printed on my running shirt will cost £2. The £2 you donate will cover the cost of this printing, and the company I work for has agreed to donate the equivalent amount (upto a total of £200) to Farplace Animal Rescue (Durham). This means that I am trying to get 100 people to sign up.
For anyone requiring confirmation of my run etc, please feel free to contact Gareth at Farplace Animal Rescue, Durham (email gareth@farplace.co.uk). They also have a website if you google them which will have further contact details.
Gareth will confirm to you that I am one of their confirmed runners in this years Bupa Great North Run on 5th October 2008.
Anyone wishing to contact me can do so. My details are Jonathan (Jon) Taylor, [address provided by Jon but removed for safety], email jontaylor93[at]aol.com
If you wish to have your cats photo and a message on my running shirt then you can make your £2 donation at Nationwide Building Society (sort code 074456, account number 03840737).
I am arranging a cheque presentation for after the race when I will present Farplace Animal Rescue with a cheque for the funds raised.
I will email a photo of myself  wearing the Tshirt to everyone who want one, and I also want to get the cheque presentation in the local paper.

Modified to disguise Jons personal details.
