Commentathon Results, Shop Anipals, and More!

Happy Wednesday everyone! No guest blogger today, so you’ll have to make do with me. MOL! Got lots to tell you, too.

First, big news about my commentathon. I’ve got over 100 comments! When Mom said I could have 50 cents a comment she never believed I’d meet my goal. I usually only get 5 or 6 comments a post. But I fooled her – I pulled it off! Thank you to everyone who left a comment. I couldn’t have done it without you. Duncan’s Place and The Santa Paws Drive will get at least $25 each. I won’t know the exact amount until Friday when I close comments. Woo hoo!

Next, I want to remind everyone about the Winter Carnival at the Lake With Petie (#WCLWP). It’s December 16-18. Details and a link to the twtvite are here: http://lakewithpetie2011.blogspot.com/. I hope you all can make it for at least part of the weekend. It’s gonna be a blast!

The holidays are coming. That means shopping – lots and lots of shopping. I can’t think of any place better to get cards and gifts than from your fellow anipals. I’ve put together a list of pals with shops and websites selling original work, anipal branded merchandise, and pet related items. Don’t drive yourself crazy at the mall – shop anipals!

This past weekend was the Anipal Academy Awards Ceremony. I got an award! All the volunteers that help out at pawties and charity got a star on the walk of fame. Here’s mine!

We had some snow a couple of weeks ago. One of my ferret friends up in Boulder (@snotfacecritter) was telling me how much fun it was to play in the snow. Silly me, decided to find out for myself. So Mom got my harness and leash and we went out into the snow.

Here I am out in the snow freezing my paws off!

Huge mistake! That’s what I get for listening to a woozle. I guess what woozles like and what kitties like (or at least this little kitty) are two very different things. I am not going out in the snow again. Brrrrrr!

So that’s it for today. Stop back on Sunday for the final total on my commentathon. See you then!

Candy & EK’s First Gotcha Day!

Mom went to Duncan’s Place a year ago to find me a playmate and came home with two! This is how we usually find EK and Candy – all cuddled up together, and why Mom brought both home. It’s been an interesting year. In their honor, I’m having a commentathon. More about that later.

EK and I got along right away. I didn’t like Candy at first. In fact, we’re first starting to get along now! Mom even saw me groom Candy last week. Now we all play together all the time.

Pumpkin and Candy on the Fridge

I never used to climb on anything. I didn’t get on counters, much less anywhere higher. But Candy & EK climb on everything! Candy was the first one to go on top of the fridge and the cabinets. Now I go up there too!

EK’s a stinker boy but we like him anyway. Here he is making trouble as usual.

EK in the recycling bin.
EK splashing water all over the kitchen. Mom had to put a washing machine pan under the fountain cuz he makes such a mess!

You’ve all heard about our trials and tribulations with how fussy Candy can be. We have to be careful what she eats or she gets the runs. We’ve changed litters a few times cuz she decided she didn’t like the litter anymore and peed on the rugs. Sigh. Between EK making trouble and Candy being such a fussy thing, sometimes I wonder why Mom kept them. But she did, and now I’m glad she did. I pretend not to like them, but really I do!

Since we had our big pawty for my gotcha day, and it’s Anipal Academy Awards this weekend, we’re having kind of a low key celebration. We did get a nip pawty last night. Here’s Candy playing in the nip.

Now the important stuff. The commentathon. Mom’s giving me 50 cents for each comment I get by Friday, 11/18. Half the green papers are going to Duncan’s Place. After all, that’s where the squirts came from and we support them whenever we can. The other half of the green papers are going to the Santa Paws Drive. We know how much fun toys are and we think shelter pets should have them too. It helps them be less bored while they wait for furever homes and helps them socialize. I hope we get lots of comments! My goal is to have at least $50 – $25 for each place. That’s an awful lot of comments to get there. Don’t let me down pals.

I might have a guest blogger this week, but I’m not sure. If I don’t, I’ll be back myself cuz I got some funny pics I never got around to post. And I’ll update you on the commentathon.

Have a good week everyone!

Adopt-A-Cat Month®

As you know, June is Adopt-A-Cat Month®. In honor of Adopt-A-Cat Month® I’ve added a new page to my blog – I Need a Home Please! On it is a widget that features cats from my favorite shelter, Duncan’s Place, a Cat Sanctuary. If you click on it, it takes you to Petfinder.com and you can look up pets everywhere. It looks like this:

I hope you’ll visit Petfinder.com. You can get a widget like this one for you own blog. Or, you may just find your new best furriend there!

It’s Saturday and that means bloghop! Join the fun.
