What does any mature and sophisticated newly 29-year-old adult want to do on her birthday? I’m pretty sure the right answer is hide under a comfy blanket with coffee in hand and spend the day with her cat. That’s what I want to do, at least. The only problem is Pix will barely put up with the audacity of me ‘being present’ for so long before she realizes that laying in the sun is a much more tempting offer. I don’t blame her, really.
Today is my birthday. The best thing about birthdays? Gifts. (And getting to do whatever the hell you want all day without anyone telling you you’re a lazy sack. Oh, and cake. Mmm) So, I thought it would be fun to give a present away. It contains the necessary items to attain my ideal ‘perfect day.’ A super soft blanket, a mug for your coffee, and fun things to make your cat(s) want to spend the day with you.
Included in the giveaway is:
– A plush red and brown new cat bed
– A plaid fleece blanket
– A cat-crazy coffee mug
– Kitty treats
– 3 crocheted balls that rattle
– 3 crocheted catnip-infused mice
– 2 crocheted sling bands (Pix’s favorite!)
All crocheted toys are done by yours truly. Normally, I sell them to raise money for the SPCA and these are the colors I had on hand. If you want specific colors, just ask! I hoard yarn in every color imaginable.
To enter: Fill out the form below. In the ‘comment’ section of the form, please say what state you live in (US) or what country. You can enter from now through the end of Saturday (11:59pm EST). The winner will be drawn at random and announced here Sunday.
If you have a cat: enter
If you don’t, but know someone who does: enter (I’ll mail it out before Christmas)
If you don’t have a cat, or know any cat lovers: enter and donate it to your local humane society. I’m sure they would appreciate it.
Next time, I’ll do a more generic giveaway. Like money, or an Amazon gift card. But, it’s my birthday. As Cartman would say: I do what I want!
(This giveaway is sponsored by my husband. Who happily supported me spending money in order to do this even though I don’t make money blogging. He’s pretty kickass)

Nothing cat like here in my doggy den. Archie would have a fit if there were to ever be any cat paraphernalia arrive at his doorstep…. 😉
Oh Archie. Why you gotta be so territorial? Lol
He is very territorial for sure. Don’t mess with my gaff…!

I tried to enter, but it wouldn’t go. Maybe because I’m using Google Chrome?
What fun! I love your idea. Happy Birthday!!
Thanksgiving weekend, we found 5 little ones (about 4-5 weeks old). The first one on Thanksgiving morning had fallen into a bucket where I’d been collecting rainwater & was frantically trying to stay afloat. Her name is now Lucky. The next day we got her 2 brothers. Shadow (he’s black) and Nipper (from the chomp marks left on by better half’s hand). The guy across the street said a feral had them under his house. They were just old enough to start venturing out.
On Sunday, following three days of rain, I heard frantic cries in our backyard. Two kittens were stumbling through puddles, in the dark, lost and calling out for mama. They came from under our house, from another feral. They’re about a week younger than the other 3. They’re now Marbles (marbled gray tabby) and Puddles.
Which brings our number up to …. ahem… not gonna say. So seeing how you crochet cat toys for the SPCA – you just went up another notch in my book!
Don’t worry, it went through 🙂 I gotcha
Thank you for the well wishes. 5 kittens wow! I’m glad you found them, and nothing happened in all that rain. Poor kitties. Thank you for being their savior 🙂
Happy Birthday!! At 29, you are officially a “Crazy Cat Lady”! 😀
Yesss! Thank you lol
Happy Birthday! I love the title!
Happy birthday. 😀
Those mice are adorable, btw. ^_^
Thank you! 🙂
Happy Bday! My 13 year old cat died from cancer about a month before my 40th. Her death combined with the ridiculous number, was an opportunity to make my friends bring cat shelter donations (and alcohol) instead of gifts I didn’t need.
So I guess that point of that is “Yeah for kitty give aways and donations”:)
Aw I like that idea. But, I’m sorry about your kitty. 😦
She was a good girl.
Happy Birthday !
Two cats, 3 daughters…none as generous and awesome as you (although they do have their good points!) ❤
Wow, thank you 🙂 That was so kind to say.
It’s da truth! You are also a pissah
Happy Birthday! This is my ideal birthday too…but it would also include my 2 dogs (my cat and dogs are best buddies lol).
Have a great day 🙂
Thanks! Dogs are awesome. If I had one, they would definitely be included in my day
Many happy returns 🙂
Reblogged this on wwwpalfitness.
Happy Birthday, kiddo! 😀
Woo! Thanks 🙂
Belated happy birthday. Our cats only seem to like playing with things that don’t belong to them – used underwear, olives, bread.
Underwear? Those dirty animals
I live in South Carolina. What a really nice prize. My cats would love that comfy bed. 🙂 Thank you for the chance. Happy Holidays!
Thank you! 🙂
Happy Birthday day! I only like young cats. The older cat are stringy and tough; taking much longer too cool .
That’s pretty sick, you know! Lol
yeah I know, I’m ashamed of myself. Tender Vittles and all lol
Happy birthday, and good luck with the giveaway. We’ve got no authorized cats around us, just a rather large rabbit who doesn’t see what the fuss about cats is.
Happy belated birthday. I hope it was a good one for you
Happy Belated Birthday! Hope that you had a wonderful one. 🙂
Gasp!!! I wuv kittie-ths! Thems so furs-thie!! I wub to pet thems, hold thems, and kiss thems between their cute little ears!!
Happy belated birthday! I missed the giveaway but I’m so glad that someone would take the initiative to do something like this, especially since the gifts are likely going to be donated to the SPCA. I’ll be sure to check your Etsy store! (My sister is into crocheting and is just about to finish a green vest for my kitten Curie, by the way!). How many cats do you have? I’m venturing through your blog to find out 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 If you went on a cat-counting venture here (lol) you’ll find I only have one cat. BUT… I actually adopted a kitten today. Her introduction will 100% be my next post lol 🙂
That’s so exciting! I can’t wait to be introduced to her. Don’t forget to add in her pictures, pictures, and more pictures!
