April 12, 2017- The second cat on the list of World’s Richest Cat is none other than Hello Kitty who rakes in approximately SEVEN BILLION dollars a year. Whoa! That’s a lot of tuna! Sure, she may be fictitious but her earning power is real. Hello Kitty’s fortune has been amassed by selling merchandise, licensing deals, t-shirts, jewelry, books, stickers and more. Hello Kitty has also done her fair share of charity work. In 2014 she teamed up with famed, master pastry chef Pierre Herme for Macaron Day to help raise money for children fighting serious diseases.
Hats off to Hello Kitty for being philanthropic and working for such amazing causes. Keep up the good work! Stay tuned for Number 1…coming next Wednesday!
Thank you to Dr. Delaney Della Fortuna who owns the Binbrook Animal Hospital for writing this description of what the Angel Fund is and what it’s used for. The Angel Fund is one of the programs that Panda the Very Bad Cat supports by donating a portions of the proceeds from every sale of our book.
The angel fund was developed to try and help our clients who want the very best for beloved pet in an emergency type situation but don’t always have the funds to be able to do so. For example, a senior citizen whose pet desperately needs dental surgery to have their teeth cleaned and infected teeth removed. The owner comes in every year and has their physical exam and vaccines but the cost of a procedure like that isn’t in a pensioners budget. Or we have used it on a client who was on disability and had a epileptic cat. She made it work year after year to buy the medication and do the lab work required and when it came to the day she had to say goodbye we covered the bill for the euthanasia.
The Angel Fund allows us to help our clients that truly want the best for their pets but
when emergencies arise the funds are not always there so instead of letting the pets
suffer we give the owners a helping hand.
I hope that you’ll join Panda the Very Bad Cat in supporting this great cause!
