Cat on Twitter Raises Nearly $5,000 for Charities

''I'm an accidental fund-raiser. I love animals, and it just seemed like a way to make a difference,'' Golon, a young mother who works in public relations, told the Allentown (Pa.) Morning Call recently.
Now, Romeo – with Golon's assistance – chooses a different organization to benefit each month; past recipients have included the Humane Society, Forgotten Persian Rescue and Coopersburg, Pa.'s Animals in Distress.
Still, all that tweeting doesn't mean that Romeo – who also has a blog – has shirked his usual kitty activities. He's still chasing after his adopted brother Pugsley, a furry black cat. As Romeo said in one of his Twitter postings: "Gonna get that Pugsley. He is unawares. Have huge, dilated pupils; am crouched down low. HAHA!SPRING!"
Good luck, Romeo!
