Sunday smorgasbord - The Four P's

Another smorgasbord of things for today, featuring 4 p's: A prize, a purchase, a paw it forward, and a priceless precious collectible! Enjoy...

~~~

First up, we have a not-a-raffle (MOL) prize that we won from Hansel and Tesla. It's a Great Escape cat condo that comes with a fevver attached and can be hooked up to more units to make a giant condo! How cool is that? The fevver is great fun.



Roxy checks it out:



Sassy attacks the fevver:



We've all had some fun with that fevver so far and will be posting more photos and some movies in the coming days/weeks! Thanks so much to Hansel and Tesla for our new condo!!

~~~

Next, we have some great nip balls that were a purchase from Shadow Cat and her mom. These are crocheted balls with nip inside! Must be some good nip, too, 'cuz we're having a blast with them. The Mommy's only given us a couple so far (she bought a bunch, most for us -- figuring some will get lost and need replacing, MOL -- and some for sharing), plus Shadow sent a special big one on a string for Bugsy -- she said she thinks he's a handsome mancat! (We agree!)

Here, Callie checks out a purple nip ball:



And Bugsy shows how happy he is to be home from the cancer v-e-t for the weekend by playing with his special large rainbow-colored nip-ball-on-a-string:





And here's a video of Sassy playing with a pink nip ball!



What a blast! And Bugsy says thank you to Shadow for the extra special large nip ball!

~~~

For our paw it forward, we got a package allllllll the way from Australia! We don't know exactly where that is of course, but we know it's a long long long way away from us in Texas USA. Our friend Huffle Mawson, she of the missing parsley pot, sent us a package of wonderful goodies.

Here we are checking the stuff out, except for Roxy (though you can see her butt and tail in the back -- so it's almost another Quintuple Cat Crown Jewel photo! MOL). We've got toys, and a 2010 Australia calendar for The Mommy, and a beautimous picture of Herself too!



Callie plays with one of the fevver/ball toys:



Roxy can't decide whether to play with a baby mousie, or the ladybug with a ring string in its butt (when The Mommy pulls the string, the ladybug moves! It works better on non-carpet surfaces...):



And Pixie plays with the red fevver ball toy while Huffle herself snoopervises (and Callie too until she gets chased off):



Thank you so much for the lovely toys, and the calendar and of course the card with your glamourous photo, Miss Huffle!! We love it all and appreciate it very much.

And now it's our turn to Paw It Forward with a kitty or two! We know a lot of you have played recently or may feel like you can't play yourselves but really, it doesn't take much to play. It's not about the money you spend, it's just about doing something nice for somebuddy sometime down the road. It doesn't even have to be immediate; you can play now by receiving, and play a lot later by giving/helping when you can. Even if you've received before, even recently, you can still receive now.

So how about it? Are there a couple of kitties out there who wanna play? First two to respond in the comments get it!

~~~

And last but certainly not least, our priceless precious collectible comes from our friends at Zoolatry on their Cat Collectibles site, where this stunning image was posted yesterday:



Isn't that beautiful?? We were amazed, and honored by the work the Zoolatry Human did on our images. Check out her other work at that site too, if you haven't...it's simply wonderful. Thanks so much, ZH!!

Yeah, we're a little long-winded today for an Easy Sunday....sorry 'bout that. Time to go take some naps to recover...
