The items I made for the PDSA are selling quite well too, I will be making a few more shortly

Jacket sales are up slightly as well which has helped a bit.
I am embarrassed to admit I noticed there was a problem with the donation counter!
I made some changes to the website a while back which broke the code showing donations paid/ due. The system which accounts for donations is now and always has been absolutely fine, it was just the code which displays the donations that was in error so every penny donated is still accounted.
Basically the counter was not showing the Happy House Cats donations just customer donations but it has now been fixed and double checked to make sure it is displaying the correct amount.
I apologise for the error and would just like to assure you that it in no way resulted in the PDSA missing any funds.
I had a word with the manager and she said the bags of catnip are selling so that is making a bit more, I am also planning to provide some catnip pillows for them to sell but I have been rather busy the last few weeks working on the new shop site and such like but I will get some made soon
I also took a dozen bags of organic catnip into the shop for them to sell, so hopefully next time there will be a bit more raised (if they sell).
Someone kindly sent a donation for assistance with a DIY project which was very kind so that boosted the funds a bit more, it may not look like a lot but £14 is making a difference and the staff at the PDSA shop were once again extremely grateful for it.
I noticed from the receipt numbers there have been no other donations receipts issued since the last one two weeks ago, I hope that is just that receipts are not issued ordinarily – it is quite a poor show if no one had made a donation!
I am going to make up some bags of catnip and drop them in at the shop for them to sell, I am not sure if I should add that to the PDSA records here as it is not strictly donations by customers but it would be assistance from Happy House Cats. If anyone has any thoughts on that please leave a comment or drop me a line using the contact us page

I have decided to post in the News page when I make payments to the PDSA so that everyone can see that payments are being made. Unfortunately the receipts for the first two payments I made has vanished down a worm hole in time & space so you will have to trust me that the first £30 was actually paid.
Anyway, I called in at the local PDSA shop in Paisley today to make a payment of outstanding PDSA donations totalling £50.
The staff at the PDSA shop were absolutely overjoyed and asked me to thank everyone who donated.
During these troubled times the PDSA is under greater strain with more clients seeking help and declining donations, so a huge thank you to everyone who donated from the both the PDSA and myself.
To date, thanks to the generosity of Happy House Cats customers, we have raised a total of £80, which has maybe meant the difference between life and death for some poor pets out there
