Retiring



It is with many thoughts and long consideration that I am announcing my resignation as Head Auctioneer at the CB Auction. I have enjoyed my year and a half tenure there helping those in need of $$$ and meeting many new good friends. I will use the extra time to have new adventures. There is talk in the winds that Little Productions, producers of the CCSI shows, is soon to produce a new episode. I have been asked to step on board with this process and my time will be taken up at the studios. I want to thank everyone who participated in the fundraising efforts with KC and me. This auction would not be successful without the help of all of those that donate and bid. Your continuous support of the auction will guarantee that those in need will get the help they so need. You all are the greatest and so appreciated!

 Love, Gracie Retired Head Auctioneer

Wow, Gracie, whoever will fill your paws? Oh, my goodness!

We've only been around the CB for about 13 months, but we think you've done an amazing job! Thank you so much for all your hard work (special thanks from Derry and the mom!). Kitty kisses and head butts to you!

Gracie, we greatly appreciate the hard work you have put in at the auction during your time as head auctioneer. Most of us have no idea of the amount of time and effort involved to coordinate an auction. You did a terrific job and helped many of us bloggers. We will miss your sweet face and gavel on the site but we are happy you will be involved with new CCSI shows. We look forward to your new adventures. Thank you for everything you have done to help.

Dearest Gracie,
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, so very much for all the help, for all the fantastic job you have done to help so many kitties, their moms and dads in need... In many years, in many places I've been, I have never quite seen anything so powerful so caring, so thoughtful like the work you and the Blogosphere do to help those who are in need... so selflessly... You are truly special... Hugs, headbutts and love,
Us at Happy Cat Family
