We are the Rubinoff FurKids, Pixel, Otis and #AngelJinny. We will be telling stories of our lives and our family plus adding our opinions on some stuff. Since I (#AngelJinny) am still the boss of our little pack, I usually have more to say. Mom and Dad will be referred to as "M" and "D", and I will be "Jinny". We hope you will be entertained.

A Gift for Robyn Harton & GeorgeTheDuck

Dear Anipals, I have posted the chip-in link to help GeorgeTheDuck 's amazing and wonderful Typist Robyn. She is in dire financial need. Her amazing Jewelry business http://www.crystalsandjewelry.com/index.html is not doing so well.In fact, her business is down almost 70% - partly because she isn't well enough to work the 10+ hours a day as she had been doing and partly just due to our poor economy.

Everyone who's ever been to a #pawpawty and/or #nipclub knows how tirelessly Robyn & George work to help others in need. Now it's our turn to help her.

You can donate on the chip-in here and you can buy her fabulous jewelry. You can also donate some of her jewelry as prizes during the next #pawpawty.

Please read MarioDaCat 's great bloggy for more on this story http://mariodacat.blogspot.com Also please RT if you see our tweets and if you are so inclined you could add this chip-in page to your own bloggy.
Thank you all. PS. I am sorry I cannot seem to get these linky's to work, so you'll need to cut and paste. I'm technologically bloggy challenged!

GeorgeTheDuck's Typist Robin needs our help

Our Friend MarioDaCat has posted this important message:

Here's from Mario's Boggy:
"The Animals in the Birmingham, Alabama area need our help as so many are suffering because of the terrible tornado destruction on April 28 and 29. A blogging friend who is a veterinarian in Rochester, New York at http://www.henriettahosp.com/ sent me the following message:

"I spoke with a very dear friend of mine, Jacqueline Meyer, Executive Director of the Greater Birmingham Animal Shelter...The livestock in Alabama have been devastated...... they need help for those surviving and need medical attention...help building temporary shelters etc.

she said the situation is as bad as Katrina...

Here is the link to GBAS donation page...I assure you, this is a worthy organization. Help The Farm Animals in the Greater Birmingham, Alabama Suffering From Tornado Devastation. "
Pals, the situation is bad in our southern states pals. We pulled together to help the animals in New Zealand and Japan after the major earthquakes, and also for Australia after the major flooding. Can you now spare a few more $$ to help the animals in the northern Alabama area (which was hit the hardest of our southern states). If you tweet or blog, please help with broadcasting the link to the Animal Shelter. You don't even have to braodcast the link to my blog - just the donation link:
(You may have to copy/paste this linky cuz I'm havin truble puttin it on my bloggy)
Here it is anyway: http://www.gbhs.org/site/PageServer?pagename=gbhs_home
Thanks pals - you always come through when he chips are down."

My Name

Mama has been looking and looking. She finally found the Wikipedia description of my name. It's pretty funny considering I'm a Jewish doggy, but that is what my original Daddy named me. Here it is:
Jinn (Arabic: جن jinn, singular جني jinnī; variant spelling djinn) or genies are supernatural creatures in Arab folklore and Islamic teachings which occupy a parallel world to that of mankind. Together, jinn, humans and angels make up the three sentient creations of Allah. According to the Qur’ān, there are two creations that have free will[citation needed]: humans and jinn. Religious sources say barely anything about them; however, the Qur’an mentions that jinn are made of smokeless flame or "the fire of a scorching wind".[1] Like human beings, the jinn can also be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent.[2]

Pixel agrees that describes me perfectly!

Tribute To the Beautiful Tez - A Letter by his Mama.

My dear, lovely friends,

Well, it is now a week since we last saw Tez, and whilst I realise that this is not too long in comparison to other cats' disappearances, I feel I owe it to you all to be honest and let you know my true feelings here.

I have had the joy of living with Tez for over sixteen years, and in that time, I have developed a very strong, almost psychic, connection with him. I have spent a lot of time over these last few days, sitting quietly and “tuning in” to him and I have to tell you that the sense I get is that Tez has chosen this to be his time to cross the Rainbow Bridge. I know that this is upsetting – I'm crying as I write – but in actual fact, the reason that I sense this, is very positive...I get absolutely no sense of Tez being injured, or lost, or trapped, or scared, or in any kind of danger; the only sense I get is one of deep peace and contentment.

Let's not forget, Tez is 16 years old, which is the equivalent of an 80 year old person. As most of you know, he had been ill a couple of weeks ago with gastroenteritis which he seemed to recover fully from, but I'm wondering if the stress of going the vets every day (and he hated going in the car), having to be force-fed and all the antibiotics & other meds he had to take actually had a more damaging effect than we realised. At the end of the day, he wasn't used to it...previous to that, do you know how many times in 16 years we had to take Tez to the vets because he was ill? Answer...none. He quite literally was never, ever ill and I don't know about you, but if I get to 80 years old and never ail for anything, then I'll be more than happy.

Please don't think for a minute that we are giving up on Tez. His dad and I will be out searching and shouting for him for a long, long time yet and I hope and pray that he'll come strutting through the door and prove me wrong here, but the special bond that we have always shared feels to be gently telling me that he knew it was his time to take himself off somewhere peaceful and drift into his forever sleep...and also reassuring me that he's very happy about it.

The other sense I get is that Tez sees absolutely no reason why this should stop him tweeting. Lots of anipals tweet from over the Rainbow Bridge, and whilst I am a bit reluctant just yet to add Tez to this wonderful group of furriends...because, obviously, we don't know for sure...I think that the sensible, mature and practical thing to do here, is to acknowledge that Tez has, in fact, been abducted by the most loving, friendly and intelligent aliens (!!). Tez will be coming back very soon to tweet as himself, but rather than as a “16 year tabby boy etc” he will be “The Intergalactic Cat of Mystery” which, I think we can all agree, suits him to a tee. More to the point, he will now be playing a stronger role in helping all anipals and their humans whenever they need it – his mission (which is why he was abducted and has been in training for the last week) is to work for the greater good of all animals, the world over. He will be there to help, support, comfort, heal, problem-solve, trouble-shoot, or simply to lend an ear for anyone at all who needs it. And, of course, it goes without saying, he will be hanging out with his beloved mousecateer buddies and all his other wonderful furriends, getting drunk with Leo, going to pawties, weddings, nipclub etc etc.

If anyone is familiar with the Law of Attraction, you'll know that this states that if we want to attract something into our life, then we should act as though we already have it so, who knows, perhaps by stopping seeing Tez as “missing” this might be the very thing that brings him back into our lives – if he is still just wandering about somewhere. And if not, well, we will still have brought him back, just in a different, better guise, and this should help us in feeling less sad and upset all the time...which Tez would definitely not want.

I do hope that I've expressed myself OK here, and that this makes sense. TabbyTezTweets lives on in determination to have an even more pawsitive effect on the world and his many furriends. Words could never express how grateful I am to this amazing Twitter community, and I hope that by becoming more active in helping wherever possible, Tez and I can, in some way, pay it forward. Bethany and Mishka will be opening their own Twitter account soon, too – so we are all united and happy together again.

If anyone wants to contact me, please do feel free to DM, or mail me at jinnyibiza@gmail.com.

Sending you all our love,

Jinny & Tez
