Merry Christmas kitties and pawents! I hope everyone is ready for this weekend! Can you believe it's Christmastime already?!

Well, I wanted to buy every single one of my wonderful friends a present for the holiday, but unfortunately, mom says until we win the lottery, we can't. So instead, we are holding a Santa Sweepstakes!

Many of you are likely familiar with Tigger's Dad's Etsy store, The CatFunAttic. ( If you're not, you should check out all the cool things he offers. He also creates those wonderful figurines you've probably seen around Catster. You can see the ones he made for me on my page.

Well, to celebrate Christmas, I am giving away gift certificates to his Etsy store. There will be one lucky first-place winner, two second-place winners and two third-place winners! I'm so excited!

Here are the rules:

- Everyone is welcome to enter, but only one entry per family, please.
- All you have to do is leave a comment on this diary entry.
- Comment between now and Thursday at midnight Mountain Time.
- I will use a random number thingymajig to randomly select five winners.
- Winners will be announced probably Friday. (Unless my secretary gets busy.)

So good luck and Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all my wonderful friends! And thanks to Tigger and Dad for helping make this sweepstakes possible!

P.S. In celebration of my Cat of the Week honor (can you believe it!?! I'm so excited!!!), I will be giving away gifts of zealies for the sixth- and seventh-place winners!

Comment on what? you need to give us more to go on Monida. I can comment that my mom thinks I've officially lost my marbles. That's what I can say.

Cooment on what an extrodinarily colored cat and how serious and professional you look for the camera? We do so wish you would become the newscat here and we could hear all the news from you!
So much better than the silly news people on TV.

We are commenting! We love the little figures and we will certainly check out the etsy store!

I agree with Finney. He has lost his marbles for sure. Does Tigger's Dad sell marbles in his shop? I hope Finney wins so that he can buy some much needed marbles.

While I'm here I would like to win something too purrlease.

My comment other than Finney has officially lost his marbles is that this is a wonderful idea. Tigger's Dad Guy is very talented. We love our just recently arrives angel tree ornaments and my figurine.

Wriggley, Dice, and Bunka have joined us for Christmas thanks to TheCatFunAttic.
