YAY, didn't he do well

Lickle Wo-Li Boo Bumpkin did so well at the Pandas Unlimited Silent Auction at the National Zoo in Washington. All together the silent auction raised $3,000 of which he made a great contribution ($280). He will be living with a very sweet lady called Elise that was delighted to win him as she had been looking after him up until the auction so had got rather attached to this little fella. Pandas Unlimited are a wonderful group of people that do so much for fund raising for the pandas at the Zoo, which does very important work for the conservation and future of this precious animal. The event was a great success and all their fund raising this year has come to a staggering $17,000. It was Tai's 3rd birthday, he is just such a gorgeous panda and he got given a lovely birthday treat of a frozen fruit cake which he loves once he got over the fear of a giant 3!! Take a look at all the photos at

Thanks for all your best wishes, it was a delight to be able to create a little character for this special event and I plan to bring to life more baby pandas in the near future. In the meantime I'm busy finishing a custom order and then can't wait to work on a bear that I have had in my mind and sketch book for some time... so watch this space :) Hugs, Catherine xx

Hi Catherine,
So glad to hear all went well with your panda, he's such a cutie and working for such a great cause.
P.S. I'm having a little giveaway at my blog this week so please play along if you'd like.

So pleased your sweet little panda sold and raised very important monies for the charity. And thanks goes to you for your kindness towards others. Can't wait to see the new bear. x

No wonder he made so much money for the auction! So expertly made and so full of personality.
