Hello kitties!!!

This diary entry is pretty much targeted at our friends who have received some of our catnip toys, but there's some exciting news for the rest of your too... hehehe! I'm a shameless promoter as my mommy would say!

Calling all Kitties for the chance to be super amazing kitty Models!

Mommy is going to launch her etsy shop! That's right, after ALL this time mommy is finally going to make it an launch it! We're looking for some super duper gorgeous kitties to be the models for the pictures! Since all toys will be customized for each kitty who orders one, we want the pictures to feature a kitty friend playing with the toy! The picture must be a clear shot of the kitty and the toy. If you kitties out there want to launch your future careers in the gorgeous business, if you want to earn lots of nom noms and chin skritchies, and be told every day how amazingly good looking you are, AND if you have pictures of yourself with our toys... pawmail me or leave a comment here. Mommy will send your her email address and you can email her the high res versions of your pictures! The best looking kitties (well the kitties who fit our needs for each picture, we could never chose the best kitties among all of you!) will be featured on her etsy page! Come one, come all! Mommy needs your help to make this work!

And now... a French lesson!

What cats do!

Je Miaule = I Meow (Well you may meow... I MRAT!)

Je Ronronne = I Purr (I have a thunder purr!)

Je Dors = I sleep (oh oh oh!!! This one is my favorite!!!)

Je Reste assis et je regarde fixement dans le vide pendant des heures = I sit and stare at nothing for hours on end

Je cours rapidement d'une piece a l'autre sans aucune raison apparente = I run rapidly from room to room for no apparent reason (I.E. the zoomies! I think this is River's favorite)

Me and Simone are going to record a CD together! MMMMRRAAATTTTT!!!

Finney - That is one of their toys! But it was taken with a cellphone camera, and it's a little out of focus. But maybe it would work!

We want all pictures kitties! We clearly can't use them all but we will probably rotate through them every once and a while! It's all about what works best for each item! We can't wait either! We want our kitty friends to enjoy these toys and we want mommy to make more toys for our shelter kitty friends!

oh... and Lacey, our CD is going to kick kitty butts! hehehe! We are going to be famous kitty rock stars in no time! You have our email address to send us pictures... the rest of you, mommy is going to pawmail you!

Monida some photo programs can clear up cell phone pictures like my Microsoft Picture It. you could email the picture to us if you'd like we can try and play with it and clear it up?! We'd be happy to try it.

OH YEAH BABY. You know it Moe Moe Toes! I'll have to put my singing picture back up.

We'll have to look over about 2 backup CD's worth for those pics but we kept them. Mom backs up everything at least once a month (learned the hard way) and that way she doesn't have to keep zillions of pictures on the computer to take up memory. We'll also send you our IBD Kitties logo to use too if you still want to.

Oh cat music, Lacey and Simone singing. I gotta get that. That's WAY better then what Mom plays. And them toys sound pawtastic! We can't wait!

Je cours rapidement d'une piece a l'autre sans aucune raison apparente AND I'm meowing loudly at the same time! That's how excited I am.

What a great idea. Remember that cute one of Zoe practically standing on her head with your toy. We'll see what we can find.. give us a few days...Mom will be away for a while.

Oh oh, I love to model your nippy toys! Heehee, that would be fun! I can find some good pics...Je Ronronne pour votre toys! I love 'je ronronnne!' Such a pawsome french word!! And that last sentence about zommies - c'est moi!

I love that big bunny kicker toy! I love to hug it and then attack it! Mom has some pics of me with the bunny kicker. Je ronronne! Thanks for the french lesson!

Those are some helpful French phrases, but I need to now - what is "feed me now!"??

Hooray, glad to hear your Mom is going to do the Etsy shop ~ you know how much we love your catnip toys Simone! We have lots and lots of pics of us with your toys, we'll start looking through them and picking out the best ones. I love the last French saying the best, the one River likes. That one made me MOL because it's so true!

We're so glad to hear your Mom is setting up an Etsy shop. Those toys you sent us are the best! We'd be happy to send you some pix.

Coooool Simone! I can't wait for your mom's shop! What are you going to call it? And there is one way to cheat at the etsy 5 pictures per item rule: You can photoshop a picture together with several and upload it as one pic. My mom did that for a custom listing. No one reported it. But I wouldn't do that for the main photo.

You should see the products she's been making all weekend! There are so many cool toys being formed all over the house! I'm helping! I hope you kitties all have your pennies saved! hehehe!

River is your mommy making some with some cooler material for summer? Cooler as in, not flannel or fleece but cotton or something?
Purred by: River (Catster Member)

May 29th 2011 at 1:07 pm

Yups! The Flannel and Fleece fabrics have to be used for some of the toys because of the design, but the heart, mousie, and pillow toys have a bunch of cotton designs too in bright spring and summer patterns! You should see the pile! It's so tempting for a mancat to just jump right in! She's working on a special batch of 'patriotic' 100% cotton mousies for the summer holidays! They are pretty neat looking!

Those sound really pawsome River! We can't wait to see your mom's shop and the pictures! How neat! We're so happy for her.

Simone, when your Mom opens her store will there be an Early Bird sale or a Blue Light special? I can bring one of our very early birds to your store if that gives me a special discount. Do you accept sparrows or just robins?

Please let me know if there are any other special purrmotions that you are planning. I don't want to miss out on getting the bestest deals. Thank Mew.
Purred by: Simone (Catster Member)

Hi Mietzi Katze! Well I don't think they'll be an initial sale when we open the store, but I DO know that mommy is planning on having a holiday sale. We were hoping for Memorial day but we missed that one so we're shooting for 4th of July! We are thinking of a 3 for 10 patriotic mousie sale or something like that. I think we'll have sales around all holidays. Maybe we'll hold a mini contest / drawing for a coupon code though! The toys are ALMOST all made. We're hoping to open the shop Sunday or Monday!
Purred by: Mietzi Katze♥ (Catster Member)

Oh too bad. There is this Robin bird that annoys the heck out of me every morning. She sits on our A/C early in the morning and taunts me.

Coupons! I love coupons because I love paper. I love ripping paper apart. Gotta get in line. The store will open soon!
Purred by: River (Catster Member)

Now, now, now... I think sister spoke too fast there. I definitely think we can accept birdies! I'm going to talk it over with mommy, but I'm pretty sure that birdies are a perfectly legitimate form of payment, so long as you leave the god noms on them! Father's day is coming up and I have to get my daddy a present. What says I love you better than a birdy?
Purred by: Mietzi Katze♥ (Catster Member)

Friends, I'm writing you from my tent. I'm in line waiting for the store to open. There are some other furs here too. It looks a little bit like Black Friday here. Exciting!

River, I think most Dads like Birdies and Eagles too. I'll try to catch an Early Bird tomorrow, if I can get up early enough. Somefur just started roasting marshmallos and I ate too many hot dogs. It's gonna be a long night.
