Introducing the Butterscotch challenge

Butterscotch the cat, may he always have a home.

Butterscotch the cat, may he always have a home.

Now that Butterscotch is safe, and presumably fine, and presumably has had his head freed from whatever bird feeder or bug trap had entombed him for the past three weeks, it's time to think about what we've learned.

The thing that has really struck me is that Brandon has an incredibly dedicated team of animal rescue volunteers. We also have at least one Crankshaft-style curmudgeon.

Well, let's not let the curmudgeons win, and let's make sure that the volunteers are recognized and rewarded.

I tweeted this out, Saturday morning, after I learned of Butterscotch's safe capture:

Now, I'm making it official:

I hereby challenge any and all ice cream parlours to offer a special "Butterscotch sundae" with proceeds going to the animal rescue organization of their choice.

I know that Brandon and Area Lost Animals took the lead in this particular case, but the Brandon Humane Society and Funds For Furry Friends are also worthy local organizations.

So how about it? I promise to eat a butterscotch sundae at any (and every) ice cream parlour that does this. I'll also promote their specials in this post.

Who's in: Velvet Dip? Tastee's? Twisters? Dairy Queen? Forbidden Flavours?
