Mr. Postman

♫ ♩ Mr. Postman look and see / if there's a package, a package for me ♪ ♪ is the song I was singing this week. You see, lately, I've been getting stiffed quite a bit. I'll win something but never see the prize. Christmas left a bad taste in this ghetto kitteh's mouth. First I never got my Secret Santa package—which I may add A Tonk's Tail more than made up for—but then TW won a raffle from the Santa Paws Drive. We waited and waited for that rug to show up. It never did. I contacted both Santa Paws' elves Dorian and Selina and they both contacted the person who was supposed to send it out and never got a response. Let me give a huge public raspberry to the folks at Kritter Kondo. HISSSSSSS!!!!

MINE!!!!!
Next, I won the Silly Saturday Photo Caption Contest over at The Teacher's Pets back in February. I sent her my address on February 25th and still haven't received my silly gifts. She was contacted and never replied. To her I send a huge public raspberry. HISSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

A couple of weeks ago, I won a drawing over at The Cat On My Head. Imagine my surprise when Mr. Postman delivered a package from Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Jo. What a great package: Temptations, 3 homemade nip pillows, and a the Cat's Meow, which is similar to the Undercover Mouse. Thanks, purrz and a wet kitty kiss to Janet and her Kitties Blue. MWAHHH!

This nip pillow is great and it's you can't have it!

My BFGF Savvy from Savannah Paw Tracks recently axed if I wanted a 3-way tunnel like hers. Who wouldn't? I nearly jumped outta my claws saying YES!! My tunnel only took a week to arrive. Many, many thanks, purrz and wet kitty kisses to Savvy and Mom Linda. MWAHHH!! (They also sent me the wonderful leopard tunnel in the foto.)

Check out the setup I got here. Welcome to the CK Transit Hub. Come visit me.
This wouldn't be so cramped if the peeps threw out their couch.

I also won a Kitty Cabana from Pet Tuff Products over at Ask Fisher which arrived a few weeks later. The guy at Pet Tuff actually felt bad that he didn't send it out quicker and included a super soft blankie in the package. Unfortunately, TW has yet to set up the Cabana using such excuses as our condo is too small for all my stuff. I've made the suggestion that they toss out the couch and buy a couple of folding chairs that they can put away when they're not using them. The peeps didn't appreciate my not-so-subtle suggestions. I'm sure they want me to apologize to Jobi and Fisher that it's still sitting in the box.

That should be ME in that cabana but the peeps won't assemble mine.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention @EdnaAtNutro, who made sure I got the Greenies' SmartBites I won at Daffy's fundraising pawty, Jenny at Floppycats.com who sent the Petstages Cat Toy Package which consisted of a Scratch Snuggle and Rest and a Kick & Scratch, and Sass for the pretty red Purrito Wrapper blankie she sent despite the horrible situation she's currently going through. Visit her shop Live Love Meow! and help her out. She's currently having a SALE. Edna's panfur Panky has his own blog Man Cat Musings so what are you lady cats waiting for? The PetStages toys will most likely go to A Call 4 Paws since I don't scratch on cardboard scratchers. Purrz and hugz all around from the World's Most Stunning Cat.

I am sorry you did not get your prizes but it seems you did get some nice things CK

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Wow, CK, I can't believe people would not send you stuff you won! That is SO not right! I'm glad that The Cat on My Head kitties and Savvy send you stuff - but then, they are responsible cats. And that the Pet Tuff human was so thoughtful (even if TW isn't). Paws up for kitties and humans who keep their word!

Molly The Wally said...

At least you got some cool things Keisha. Enjoy. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That wasn't nice of those people who didn't send you the prizes you won. AND just plain rude not to reply to your emails.
But you DID get some really pawsome prizes! We LOVE your tunnels!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

It's not nice to get your hopes up by winning then not follow through! We love the stuff you did get, though. You have more tunnels than a subway!

Kjelle Bus said...

Me help you HISSSSSS at them who didn´t send you the stuff you won !
Then I can help you give kisses to all of them that did sen´t you prizes you won and gift´s :)
XOXO

Brian said...

Well at least the goodies that arrived are way cool CK!

Simba said...

We like the stuffs you did get and that shows it isn't your postman who is latching on to your things, so it seems like those senders did stiff you. Pretty bad deal, and thanks for the heads up. We won't ever bid on anything "donated" by them. Actually, Mom really likes if an auction just has a chance to make a small cash donation - nobody has to post anything, and small amounts add up.

Clarissa said...

We don't understand why the humans don't send out things that the kitties (or dog, or humans)have won! Or exchange gifts like the Secret Paws. We are glad that you did get some of your gifts though! And we are shaking our back foots in disgusts at the ones who didn't send you your winnings! *14 hind feet shaking in unison*

Tamago said...

It's terrible you don't get what you won.
Glad these other packages are delivered properly. The tunnel setup is so great! I hope you have your cabana set up soon. It really looks nice.

Katie and Glogirly said...

It's too bad you didn't get those prizes....we won something from Santa Paws and never received it either. : (

But hey...you really cashed in on the other prizes!!!
I like the idea of folding chairs. That should work out just fine. heh, heh

; ) Katie

I wonder what's up with Santa Paws this last year that peeps didn't get their prizes? That's gonna make it hard to get peeps to participate next year.

I'm really surprised about your not getting your rug from Kritter Kondo. They're usually pretty good.

That's some tunnel set up you have. I wish WE had a crinkle tunnel (hint hint hint). We have lots and lots of room for crinkle tunnels. MOL Just kidding.

ppfffftttt to all those 'no shows'!! I only got half my Santa Paws exchange gift through Sweet Purrfections, but it wasn't the other kitties' fault, customs in Poland KEPT half of it, the really cool stuff...pfffttt again to them and the ones who didn't follow through with you and I will avoid them in future. So purrleased you like the 3 way tunnel, you never know where you might end up...wheeeee!! Paw hugs, BFGF Savannah

Timmy Tomcat said...

Don't cha just hate that!
Like your public cat-shaming
Grrreat idea

meowmeowmans said...

How disappointing that you did not receive those things that you won, CK!

We are so glad to hear that you got some really cool stuff recently, though. When you get that cabana set up, you should have a pawty!

Katnip Lounge said...

Well, that's just rotten not to get your winnings! HOWEVER, TW ought to set up your stuff ON THE BED and she can sleep on the sofa. Problem solved.

Anonymous said...

Whoa! Those are some good things you won there, CK! Sorry to hear that some things didn't come through but wow! That leopard tunnel looks AWESOME!

ABBY said...

Paw some prizes CK!
Super hisses on those who didn't follow thru on the other prizes!

The Island Cats said...

Wow, CK. The stuff you did get seems to make up for the stuff you didn't get. Though not getting it sure wasn't right.

Mariodacatsmom said...

Whew CK - your sure had a streak of rotten luck there for a bit with prizes. Hope things look up soon.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I'm SO sorry my sweet darling! My Human, well, she has been in a state of rebellion in which she helps me post but she has not helped me visit my furiends in DAYS and DAYS because she keeps going "out" and then she comes home and she's "tired" and it just makes me SO MAD. I'm waiting for you on the blue pillows, CK--can you hop in that tunnel and get over here?

Kitties Blue said...

Mommy is all gaga gooey over getting that wet kitty kiss C.K. You are such a sweetie. Thanks for the link back to us. Hope TW sets up your Cat's Meow 'cause you got the batteries…so tell her, "no excuses." We know about winning things and not getting them. We one some kind of kitty cube (for all we know it is like your cabana one) and have never seen it. And now our old, forgetful mom doesn't even remember where we won it. We like your tunnels. It looks as if you could teleport anywhere with those. Have a catabulous week. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Ann Staub said...

MOL you tell em CK! This has happened to me. One time in particular kind of brings a bad taste to my mouth. I talked about it with the person who held the giveaway and even after that still nothing. Oh wells. I guess Shiner doesn't need to shred another stuffed animal?

Katie Isabella said...

Mommy had that problem when Admiral was still with us. But she nagged so much one of them eventually came. xoxoxox LOVE your Tunnel Hub. Who has shown up recently? Are you "open" for visitors any time? I may slip over there some evening if you wanna share and play Rockets sometime.

Timmy Tomcat said...

I had to post again as we have been missing things. We were waiting for a Hazel Lucy Blanket and were so worried it got missing. Then it showed up.
MEOW Tails in the Air!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hey, so you think your Pop could give you a nice little butt-thumpin? I only found out I liked it when the Katnip Lounge kitties blogged about it and the Human decided she'd give it a try. I only like it when I'm in the right mood, though. Sometimes I skedaddle.

Silver Meow said...

wowz... you are getting so many things in the mail! you won so many things that's so pawesome!

Clooney said...

It's a bummer that those initial pressies did not arrive however you have definitely cleaned up in the cool stuff department lately! Great tunnels!
