The Giveaway That Time Forgot

A strange photo of Cassie's back leg that made me laugh the other night. The brown thing is the very expensive 'El Gato', a cloth cigar of the finest cuban catnip known to cat, and a very popular choice in toy, so much so that we have three, though I don't know where they all are. All the cats have lots of aliases. One of Cassie's is Pip Pip-which stems from her energetic and mad little personality. This has developed into Pippi and then Pippi Long Paw-can you see why?!

Anyway, the giveaway. Time may not really have forgotten it, but I did. I remembered last night, and wrote all the names on pieces of post-it. Cassie knocked most of them on the floor this morning-if she had knocked four I would have chosen those, but unfortunately she can't count, and had also forgotten about the giveaway. Anyway, I picked four tonight and here they are!

Yay! Exciting for me! Thank you!

Cassie's back leg and tail make a beautiful heart.

Ours all have nicknames too. Daisy is called, "Lambchop" more than anything else. Gilbert gets "G-man" and Red is "The Redster"!

We have catnip fish, but like your cigars, we don't know where they are!

Congrats to the winners!

Isn't it funny, but our dogs have several nicknames too, tho' I think I prefer aliases. I hadn't thought other people did the same. I find I have to get to know them a while before they get their nicknames.

Thanks Sarah, that's so exciting I will email you my address details.
Love the photo of Cassie's and her long leg, no wonder you call her Pippi Long Paw.

Hahaha - Pippi Long-Paw - that is clever! I also really liked that xmas fairy bravely clinging to the tree ...

If we were to give Colette a "cigar"
she would fly from the second floor under her own power. The one and only time she got some catnip she tore through the stairs as if on fire, rolled all over the place and if a cat could laugh, I swear that was what she was doing.

She was up for a while, then snored her night away keeping us up which wasn't particularly charming of her. Every time the man who spoils her rotten suggest catnip for the garden I just gave that look that would make an elephant step on the breaks.

I love Pippi Long-Paw! now you would have to knit her a pair or two in this case, of stripped leggings, wouldn't you?

The cats can only have small toys when we're with them these days. A while ago the little dog was very poorly... in the end she 'got rid of' 3 toy mice and a squeaky ball. We wondered where everything was going...
Lucky winners of your giveaway!
