Pawing it Forward.

Kitties!


We got our Paw it Forward package from Tygana and Pepper, from One Cat's Nip!

It had some PAWESOME toys inside...stuff we've never played with before, like sparkly balls, jingle balls, and furry balls.    We also got some paper crinkly balls that are May Ling's most favoritest toy in the world, she was thrilled!  We had a blast as soon as Mommy opened the box.
Our loot!

Sylvester with one of his furry balls. 

May Ling plays with the other one!

Sparkle ball!
Pink is a Manly color, by the way.

Another sparkle ball!
There were three in the package, which totally rocked.

KonaKitty guarded hers closely.

Grayce went MAD for the jingle balls.  Mommy put some in the box and Grayce had Ye Grand Olde Tyme fishing them out and batting them everywhere.  In fact, they get put away at night or Mommy wouldn't get any sleep.

Salem loves fuzzy ball...

...a LOT.

This made us crazypants, too!

If you don't see many toys here, it's because we ran 'em all over the house!

Thank You SOOOOO Much, Tygana and Peper!
You guys are great.

So, now we need to paw it forward, and we got to thinking.
We all know Santa's gonna bring us good stuff, because we're all such Good Cats.  We've got enough toys, really.  And food, and a place to live.
So instead of sending out packages we're gonna have an impromptu commentathon for Chrystal of Daily Dose of Dogs (AKA Cats with Your Coffee) instead, and send them a gift card!
We'll donate fifty cents per comment to Chrystal, to use however she needs for her pets.

You can comment once per blog, on this post only, until Midnight of December 21 PST...so spread the word!


Happy Tuesday!

  2. Hi, buddies! We haven't had a time to catch up on your weekend, but we saw this post and just had to comment. That's a great idea for Pawing it Forward! We'll be back soon to see how much fun was had at the lounge for the days our mom was gone!

  3. Äiti thought that Sylvester had parted company with his furry balls a few weeks ago........
    Great idea to raise money - but not such a good idea to limit us to one post each! Perheeni all want to write something :)

  17. How fun to receive new toys!! Especially cool ones like that! You must have had the crazy munchies after all that nip -- I hope Mama hid the butter ;)

  18. You all hit the toy jackpot! Those furry balls are one of Harley's favorite toys, too. When he lived at the shelter and had one of those, he kept it in his mouth and refused to put it down, because he knew the other kitties might take it from him. If any cat came close, he would growl real low. Toys were precious at the shelter! Since he has lived here, we have never once heard him growl in two years.

  19. All those toys look like fun ~ how wonderful! And what a terrific idea to donate per comment. Good Christmas spirit!

  20. What a great package, and such good timing too, before Christmas!

    The comment-a-thon is a wonderful idea; Chrystal and her family are amazing -- would that the world had more of people like them. :-)

  21. What lovely loot - and here is a comment to add to the good cause!

  22. OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!!!!

    I got a little teaser comment at the daily dose last night from the Katpnip gang, so I took a break this morning and popped in to see what was up. WOW!!! I already had some really good news to post today and now the news is GIGANTIC.

    Katnip Lounge - I don't know how to express to you what your commentathon means to us. I run a small business and the profits are how I pay for all of the rescue work. But there is definitely NO extra $$. Getting another space for all of the homeless cats we encounter simply would not be a possibility if it weren't for things like this very commentathon. Because of this kind of GENEROSITY, we're going to get that second cathouse, I just know it!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. What a Fun Fest all the balls were! Now mom & Dad will be fishing them out from under the couches, fridge, dressers for a good long time!
    Great idea for the commentathon!!!!

  47. Archie just wanted to say that he thinks he has just seen his perfect toy on this post - we have never seen a fuzzy fluffy ball but think it combines the best of many playthings, fluffiness, hook-ability with claws, chase-ability, chew-ability, pounce-ability, hide-and-find-ability, in fact we may even have to invent more words to describe its potential. Now I will be visiting the world of internet shopping to see if we can find one. xx

  48. Ooo! Parcels are so fun! Fuzzy sparkly balls are my favourite too! I use them to fetch - maybe you kitties could have a go...
