The “Soap" Opera Continues #10CK

We’re back to celebrate my 10 years in the condo with another #10CK giveaway. During my celebration, I’ll be giving away over $175 worth of prizes with giveaways up until the 29th, my actual Gotcha Day. Today’s prize will be for your humans cos they feed you and keep you safe and warm.

My Gotcha story continues:

Tuna and I looked up to see human and they had us locked up. I don’t know how we didn’t notice we was walking into a trap to eat. We threw ourselves against the side of the cage but even our sharp teeth and claws were no match for the steel bars. “TUNA!” I cried as we both looked for a way out.

The humans tossed placed us in a car like the one that hit and killed my cat mother and flung a towel over us. We started singing the songs of our people and plotting our escape. “Don’t worry, da bois will come looking for us,” Tuna said. “We just have to stick together.” I always felt safe with Tuna but I didn’t feel safe now.

We found ourselves at an evil place with evil smells. Then we were broken up. I didn’t have my Tuna to protect me anymore. I was taken in a room and interrogated by a human who probed every orifice of my body. I growled, hissed and spit. I was angrier than I’d ever been in my short life. I heard the word surgery and then I was thrown back in my cage.

I awoke from the surgery. How long was I out? Did I divulge any Alley secrets? Where was Tuna? Speaking of tuna, I was plenty hungry.

That was 10 years ago. A lot of things are vague after that. The hospital shipped me off someplace to sit in a cage. That place smelled like death. Would I spend the rest of my life caged up? I waited and was given a number and a date. I was feral and deemed unadoptable even at my young age.

To be continued Monday.

Caturday Art Blog Hop and CK Giveaway 3

The “Soap" Opera Continues #10CK #sponsored

This week's art pieces were created with DreamScope. Thanks to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty for hosting the Caturday Art Blog Hop every week.

You’ll notice in both images I’m washing myself. I've no need for fancy soaps or lotions; just my tongue. On the other hand, TW has a jones for that sort of stuff. She can’t buy enough fancy, shmancy smelly soaps. I’m lucky my good furrend Pricilla is in the soap-making business.

I actually met Famous SpokesGoat Pricilla and her publicist because TW bought handmade goat’s milk soap from their Happy Goat Soap Etsy Shop. She lost her Etsy password so she axed me to comment on Pricilla’s blog to tell her how much she loved it. Well Pricilla has retired from blogging and producing milk for soap but has trained her employees well. You can still read about her from time to time on her Publicist’s blog Broken Teepee.

Disclaimer: I was provided with the item to give away but that
didn’t influence anything about this post. TW bought the soap
which shows we only blog about items we use and believe it.

Why am I telling you this? Happy Goat Soap—Pricilla and her Publicist—have graciously agreed to send six bars of their rich, all natural goat milk soap to one of my readers. It’s made in small batches at the Happy Goats Farm in Montana. The bars come in some beautiful shapes and something like 38 scents plus unscented. TW started out getting the variety packs of the hostess soaps and liked everyone she tried. Can you believe she thinks some of the bars are too pretty to use? I think she should use them and buy more (but she better not use my money).

All you have to do to enter is fill out the Rafflecopter. No purchase necessary. Giveaway is open to U.S. residents, 18+ years old. Void where prohibited. Giveaway will run from January 23 and will end January 30 at 11:59pm ET. One winner will be randomly selected by Rafflecopter and notified via email. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize; failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the prize. You can enter as many of the #10CK drawings as you wish but you can only win once. Capiche? Best of luck to everyone.

I have always wanted to try goat milk's soap. Isn't it ironic how we will buy only the best for our pets but not ourselves?

Savannah's Paw Tracks said...

Fur Everywhere said...

It must have been so scary for you when the strange humans picked you and Tuna up and shoved you in cages!! I hope Tuna was okay....hoping to hear more about him.

The Indulged Furries said...

So far, your story is scary, especially at the smell of death place.

In your rafflecopter, the link to the etsy shop is not coded properly. It's displaying on the screen, but the encoded link needs to be updated.

I'd like to meet Priscilla and see if I can also give some milk for mom's soap. Together with mom we are planning to start a new business called, "Shoko Soap" It's the Cat's Meow. We desperately need Priscilla's help. Never mind trying to flip me off with a phony phone #. It only works once CK...MOL

M is drooling over that soap. Guess I'd better enter her in the drawing if I want to keep my happy home. Yes, what a story CK. You should write a book!

meowmeowmans said...

CK, your story is so suspenseful. If we didn't know that it has a happy ending, we'd be unable to read, 'cause we'd be covering our eyes!

BeadedTail said...

If we weren't sure there's a happy ending we wouldn't be able to sleep tonight! Our mommy loves Pricilla's soaps so we'll be crossing our paws!

Dash Kitten said...
