30 Days of Christmas Shopping: Day 8, Cats Protection Celebrity Paws Auction

December 1st and Christmas just got a whole lot closer. Over the next couple of days I will be showing you online gift purchases to ensure that you can get them in time for Christmas and today’s gift is something quite special and something I’m really excited about.

Cats Protection: 2011 Celebrity Paws Auction

Simon Tofield creator of Simon’s Cat

If you know me at all you’ll know that 1. I love cats, 2. I love art and 3. If I can buy a gift where the proceeds go to charity I will. Today sums all three of those things in one neat little package.

Axel Scheffler, Children’s book illustrator

Cats Protection have organised their fifth auction to raise money to help unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens in the UK. Not only is the money going to a good cause but the items themselves are beyond awesome.

John Bishop, Comedian extraordinaire

Cats Protection has 30 unique celebrity artworks for you to bid on. Each features a human paw print (well… most of them) with a celebrity’s doodle. Most depict a cat and some are just… bizarre but there is something for everyone.

Scott Campbell, painter and illustrator (I own many things by him)

Celebrities range from: actors, dancers, chefs, well-known cartoonists and even my mate Scott C – as I’ve just found out from the website so you’re bound to find someone you like. Some are beyond awesome and some are… well, they can only be described as the so-bad-it’s-cool factor.

Gordan Ramsay, Chef and potty mouth

The auction starts tonight at 8pm and closes on December 11th. They will be framed and ready to go so you don’t have to worry about any extra framing costs or added time.

As it is an auction there’s no telling what these could go for but it is a really worthy cause and some of them are AMAZING!

I will be bidding myself and I hope you will too!

And remember, if the auction is a bit out of your price range they do have a gift section so you can still make a donation with your Christmas purchase.

Head over the their page once the auction goes live to get the link. I’ll be posting it on Twitter too. HAPPY BIDDING!
