Mannie’s Legacy


Most of you know my dear friend Kristina Werner. And if you know Kristina and watch her videos, you likely also know Mannie, her adorable cat.

On Friday, Mannie passed away after suddenly becoming ill. Over the years, Mannie made many of us smile through his pictures and guest appearances in videos.

After many requests, Jana Millen (another dear friend) and I decided to start a small “Mannie’s Legacy” fundraising page. The money goes directly to an organization near Kristina that helps animals in need.

If you are interested in donating, you can find information HERE.

Thank you! (I will be back soon with a video. I just felt this was a bit more important today. 🙂

  1. Thank you for doing this! I have only recently discovered you and Kristina and I can say you both have taught me so much. Your videos are so professional, informative, and fun. Again, thank you. It is such a nice way to let Kristina know there a lot of us out here who appreciate her work and care about her too. Thanks to Jana too!

  2. I am so sorry to hear that Mannie passed away. All pet-companions understand that a family member has been lost to Kristina. And while Mannie is not in pain and in a better place, those who care about him here on earth will remember the joy he gave.

  3. Thanks to you and Jana for setting this up, Jennifer. It is a lovely way to recognize Kristina’s loss and to help all the Mannies and Roxies out there that need loving homes.

  4. Thank you for doing this for Kristina and in memory of Mannie. My heart is breaking for her as I know all too well the loss she is feeling. I didn’t know her or Mannie personally, but I felt so close to both of them as I’ve been watching her videos since she first adopted Mannie — and I’ve come to love and cherish them both. I made a donation in hopes of helping other shelter animals find their loving, fur-ever homes with mamas as wonderful as Kristina. Prayers of love, comfort and peace being lifted up for Kristina. And my Heidi, Billy Blue Boy and Matie Poo surely greeted Mannie with loving arms and paws at the Rainbow Bridge. #adoptdontshop
