Paw It Forward!

Hello, this is Snowball taking over the blog. Our maid----uh, I mean mom---was taking her sweet time getting this posted so I thought I'd do it. Us cats wanted to thank Cory and her family over at Cory Cat Blog for the great package they sent!

We were so excited to get the package! It's the first time we've ever gotten something in the mail.

Soon as mom brought it in we all went after it! It smelled SO good! I found out why....CATNIP! Now I am a very high class girl and don't usually act silly, but well, catnip can make a girl do crazy things!

That little yellow fishy was a big brothers Coal and Midnight kept stealing it from each other. Mom needs to find some more so we can each have one.

For the first time ever, Mom was able to get a picture of all the boys together....I'm just out of range on the blue tote playing with the catnip!

Cory's mama even sent our mama a book! Wasn't that nice of her? It's called "Dewey". Maybe mama will read it to us since it's about a kitty cat. Mom said she'd have to wait until her class was over first. Oh, I can't forget to mention that Ginger the only doggie in the house full of cats even got a squeaky toy! She says "thank you for thinking of me!".

*Snowball whispers* Don't tell Ginger I said this, but she was scared of it! Mom squeaked it and went to give it to her and my silly dog-sister went and hid under mama's desk! She used to like those kind of toys when she was a puppy, but I guess she thinks she's too old for them now that she's ten. Oh well, mom said she'd "paw it forward" to her DBF's Weim, Amber. I've never met her, but mom tells me that Amber LOVES squeaky toys. Every time mom and Vince try to talk on the phone, Amber starts squeaking....she's SO jealous!

Ok, now here come's the fun part! Mama said for me to just copy exactly what Cory from Cory Cat Blog said so I wouldn't make any mistakes on how to play this game. Now I sure don't want to make a mistake on mom's blog........she'd never let me on the computer again! So here's Cory!

"This was all a part of Paw it Forward. It is now our turn to have fun pawing it forward to the next cat or dog blogger.

The guide to Paw it Forward is as follows: "The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'pay it forward' in their own way.This is how it works...I am going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to the first blog owner who posts a comment on this entry if you agree to paw it forward too. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, then send something to the first person who signs up to play along through your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness does not have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around". The rules were changed a little bit. We know that times are tough for a lot of people, and in the past the idea was to paw it forward to 3 bloggers. We are going to paw it forward to one and doing this might make it more playable for people. If you want to play with three people, it is your choice, or if you'd like to play with one or two people, that is also your choice. Keep the fun going and let me know if you want to play!"

Snowball: If you want to play, just be the first to leave us a comment saying so! We loved playing so much we already picked out some new toys to paw forward. Thanks for reading!

Those pics were too cute to pass up on to comment! I'd love to take part in this...i am a firm believer that a little kindness goes a long way!

Shelly said...

Great! I was kind of hoping you'd be the first to comment so Lucky could get her own stockpile of toys started. I'll have to email you later.

This is a really cool idea. I too am glad that Lucky is going to be the recipient.

Cory said...

Oh how fun to see everyone enjoying the nip and toys! The brand of nip and the fishie is "Yeoww", and no matter what we get from them we all love it!

Lucky is such a weird cat! She refuses to play with any toys! Unless she does it at night and puts them right back in their spot, she can't be bothered with them. When kids come over and want to play w/ her and her toys, I get the 'look' like 'GET THEM AWAY FROM ME, OR I'LL BITE AND SCRATCH!' LOL. Even catnip! we have it everywhere, and it doesnn't phase her. She's gotten accustomed to our house now, that much we can tell...we see her 'cattitude' coming out more and more each day. She's definatly a momma's girl too. Maybe she'll play with toys, hopefully. She's about a year old so it's weird. Hopefully she comes out of her shell...I'll have to post more pics of her on my blog :)Thank you so much in advance!

Have you tried a laser light with her? My Snowball who's almost 15 won't play with toys, but she LOVES the light! Some cats just like different things. I have some that like the balls and some that would rather have a ring from a gallon milk jug. We'll think of something!

The Island Cats said...

Wow! You all got such fun stuff!! Enjoy it!!

Shelly: We never got the laser light thing b/c we thought it was too cruel. She does like this whip thing that we got....she likes to chase the whip part. Today, DH had the flashlight out looking at something and she went during the day today, he's been turning it on and she chases it....too cute! When we turn it off, she's sooooo confused...actually right now, she's looking for the light :)
