Let’s talk about money

You are amazing ! The result of my commentathon : 67 CHF to give to my favorite shelter !

Thank you from the bottom of my heart !

Cathy Keisha asked us in her comment : is a CHF anything like a green paper in another color ?

Yes, it is. CHF is the acronym for Swiss franc, the currency of Switzerland. We have coins, and we have papers in several colors.

According to M. Internet, 1 CHF = 1,4 CAD = 1 USD = 0,9 EUR = 1,5 AUD = 1,6 NZD aujourd’hui.

Here are the coins :

And the banknotes :

The average salary is 6000 CHF in Switzerland, but the cost of living is one of the highest in the world. You’ll find here how far 6000 francs really get you.

Look ! See, I wasn’t higher than that when Claire and Momo got me. They said I wasn’t bigger than a key holder.

Thanks to their good care, I became the pretty little kitty you know, and Zorro took care of perfecting my feline education and teaching me how to hunt.

But I don’t forget that many friends are not lucky enough to have a forever home and are waiting in a shelter : for each person who leaves a comment on this post until Caturday, May 30th noon (Swiss time), I’ll give 1 CHF to the Haut-Léman shelter.

Results of my commentathon : Etoile is doing well

Thank you for taking part in my commentathon ! Thanks to your comments, I was able to offer 60 CHF to the Haut-Léman shelter for Etoile.

Etoile has had surgery and is recovering nicely from her intervention. Everything went well. Claire went to see her on Thursday and even gave her a hug from me : Etoile is very affectionate and full of life, I wish her a happy life in her future forever home.

I’m glad I was able to reach out to her thanks to you !
