I was telling our little cat Moe that while our One Day Drive and the preceding week were truly an incredible display of community we are still short of our $85,000 Spring Drive goal. He said, let me help, everybody on the silvernet (his words) loves cats.  He said that if we missed YOU, please make your contribution to this community wide effort now!  He wants to thank everyone that helped so far…contributing, playing music, answering phones, and doing great radio shows (he listens…and contributes). Thank Mew! (Moe is a Sitka shelter cat and was born with one eye and two radio lovin’ ears!) – Raven Radio GM Ken Fate
