Wednesday Word of the Day—Winner

I'd like to thank all my furrends who voted for me in the Anipal Academy Awards. I was a 2-time loser. However, I do have some of the bestest furrends in the world, which makes me a WINNER! I was a double WINNER because my date was the handsome SpittytheKitty. I received two Lifetime Achievement Awards for my charity work DJing at Nipclub and Pawpawties. If you've never been to a pawpawty, they're so much fun. There's one this coming weekend. For those who have never attended a pawpawty, my furrend GeorgetheDuck created this page to show you the ropes. You can Win some wonderful prizes, like a Nip and Bones gift certificate, a pawtrait done by the wonderful @zaziart, or a gorgeous scarf for your Mom for the holidays from Pasikas. You have to be on Twitter to attend.

This is my stunning pawtrait by Zaziart that I won
for Pop's birthday last year.
The annual Santa Paws Drive has gotten off to a great start. It was founded by Dorian Wagner, founder of and a bunch of other elves that are familiar in the world of anipal charities and Pawpawties. This is their mission statement, directly from their blog:
The mission of Santa Paws Drive is to bring holiday cheer to shelter animals around the world. We know pets with homes are often showered with gifts and treats for Christmas, and we believe that shelter animals deserve a little holiday love, too! 
Now in our third year, Santa Paws Drive is the first-ever online Christmas toy drive dedicated to pets. The inspiration for our drive was "Toys 4 Tots" and other similar programs that collect donations and then distribute them to the needy – and we wanted to do the same for animals. 
As you can see, it's a worthwhile cause and this year is even more special because the shelters they've picked to help are for special-needs pets. I have the widget over on the sidebar if anyone wants to donate. A truly WINNING cause. UPDATE: Friday from 7-9 pm, there will be a mini pawty on Twitter to benefit SPD. Join us and while you're pawtying, enter to win the Ultimate Pet Christmas Gift Pack from Nip and Bones.

TW worked me over with the FURminator today and I actually *whispers and looks both ways to see if Pop is around* purred for her. Don't let this get around. It's just between us.

On Sunday night, TW noticed that I had a little scratch at the outside at the base of my right ear and the area was all red and ugly. She's been putting Bacitracin on it and it looks better. She hopes I won't have to go to the v-e-t cos she doesn't want to put me through that for a long time. Also, she has to find a new place to take me. Dr. Sadist is not getting another crack at me, that's for darn sure.

BTW, I'll get back to the series about ME soon. I dunno if anyone still remembers it.

Cat Chat With Caren and Cody (Caren Gittleman) said...

as far as I am concerned you should have won.

Not only is your blog great and superbly written, you interact WITH your readers and visit their blogs as well.

To me blogging isn't just about's about interacting. Blogging is "Social" media...."social" to me means interaction...that's all I'm sayin!

Love you!

Only ONE more? Oh my, I can think of *many* areas not yet adequately explored: Your taste in men (ahem), your thoughts about sleeping preferences, many small naps? a few long ones?, your feelings about feathers vs sparkly balls, hunting bugs, etc. etc. There could NEVER be enough blog posts about YOU!

GLOGIRLY said...

Tell TW to go easy on the Kleenex. She's gonna need more. ; )

And don't worry, I have a fairly adequate supply of salmon. Of course there's always room for more.

You are a winner in my book too CK. Your bloggy is so funny hat we laugh ourselves silly when reading it. We need a category for Funniest Blog! You'd win hands down.

Just dropping by the 'hood to say Hey. Yeah, I'm gearing up for the Big Hanging. I think I might be going right over the desk, above the computer where the Human spends like 80% of her waking hours, ha ha ha!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Just dropping by to leave a few kissies for you XOXOXO How's the ouchie?
