My prizes from the Buzzin into Spring contest came yesterday, and they are AWESOME. I was stuffing my head into the tissue paper and box before mom could even get anything open. I could smell catnip!! Here are the prizes: a totebag that says "I AM TOTALLY FABULOUS", a fuzzy rabbit that buzzes when u pull the tail, a catnip little duck/bird toy, catnip pillows with pirate skulls on them, pipecleaner bee toys, furry rattling mice toys (those are a longtime favorite of mine), a fleece crate pad with bee print, and a purple harness that Morgan's mom gave me just because my mom had admired the one that Morgan has. and a children's picture book called Boris and the Snoozebox, by Leigh Hodgkinson, about a little cat's adventure.
The toys are so fun! I was playing with everything, pawingunder the tissue paper, sliding around, going into the cardboard box, tossing around the catnip duck and pipecleaner toys. By far my favorite is the little catnip bird, I flipped it around and batted it like a Kung Fu master. Mom had seen that toy before in a store, but she wasn't sure I'd like it, so she didn't buy it. Ha. Shows how much she knows. I LOVE IT. I love picking it up in my mouth and flipping it, then catching it with my paws and beating it up. If anybody is interested, it's a Purina FEATHERED FRIEND tease me toy- catnip inside, stuffing free.
The rattling mice are an old favorite that I can never get enough of. Mom buys me dozens that I play with and lose. I get very excited when I see her sweeping a ruler or stick under the furniture, cause I know all my mice will come out.
Those pipecleaner bees are also a blast! I was fiddling with them forever with my paws. So fuzzy! so weird! morgan's mom really knows what cat's like. The catnip pillows are a good little size too, perfect for batting. All you kitties should support Morgan beds, which helps pay for Morgan's high vet costs, due to his juvenile diabetes and recent cataract surgery. The crate pad I got will be very comfy on the couch. You can see happy cats all over Catster in the round Morgan beds.
The harness fits nicely and looks great, but so far I look pretty pissed when I wear it. I just lay right down. Mom is sure I will feel differently when I get to go outside on walks, but she wants to wait until the heatwave is over.
Anyway, I am so happy with my prizes and happy I was in the contest. Good luck in the next one to all my friends! You won't be sorry you entered.
Oh yeah- the book! It's Soo cute. The illustrations are wonderful. Mom went to art school for illustration, even though she works in costume making now, but she has a soft spot for good picture books. She read it to me and we both loved it. (Actually the truth is I was too busy playing to pay attention, but I sat on the cover later, and I feel sure it's a good book.)

Cali & I don't like those toys that buzz when you pull the tail. They scare us! All the others sound great,though! Concats on your prizes!
So glad that you are having so much fun and entertainment from your prizes. The book looked cute in the pics. It seems to be making a great throne for yourself. We pity you, though, having to wear a harness...Rather you than me or my brofur...
Purrs! Pipo and Minko
concats on beeing a contest winner!!! those toys sound like fun!!! (except the harness part).
Love from your purring pal~
Concats my young friend! I will demand Mamma look for that bird toy! As for harnesses, I chewed mine in half..MOL..
Enjoy and have fun Toki!
We are sooo happy you like your prizes! Willow loves that silly bird too! Mom finds it everywhere!
Way cool on your Mom doing illustrations! We love the books too! They are from Mom's boss at IBM - his wife owns Tiger Tails and Mom LOVES Lisa's books! She thinks they have the cutest stories, and the most awesome illustrations!
Hope you get used to your harness so you can go outside - it's fun!
