76 Notes for Daisy:

Poppy Q said...

Even though you deserve lots of diamonds, I think thems must be crystals from the kitty litter box.

How comes they on your bench miss Daisy?

What a great mystery.

I think I might be first!! You are worth staying up for!! Have a great week.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

We guessed right! :) Guess what? We have litter Pearls now! They are very cool. :)

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Rats! We were hoping they were for your new Tiara.

Daisy, if they allow guests at the M-Cats Grand Opening Gala, would you do us the honor of allowing us to be your escort? You would certainly be the purrttiest kitty there!

Andrée said...

I got it! I got it! My correct answer average is going up up up!

Parker said...

They look like what's in my litterbox! I love the crystals!

topcatrules said...

OHMIGOSH!!
I have to rush off and put that in Pyewacket's Party. It is SO good!!

School goes back in a week. I go back *sob* tomorrow.

topcatrules said...

P.S. You can't see it yet on the website as it is on a draft. Will be published in two weeks.

Alasandra said...

We guessed wrong, we thought they were ice cubes. Mommy needs to get us Tidy Cat, our litter doesn't have pretty crystals in it.

Scylla & Charybdis

Tink said...

I guessed wrong! Pretty litter crystals for a pretty cat! :) I had never seen those before.

Mickey said...

WooHoo!! I guessed right and it was a guess,heehee! That's cool to see it so close up.
Purrs Mickey

Cat-a-holic, Lilly and Laila said...

We were hoping they were diamond. Your Mom sure does have a good camera!

Earl Grey said...

Dang! I thought it was salt. Total bummer!

-d ma said...

Woo hoo. Got er right. That is a pretty cool shot of the crystals.

Vincent and Mike said...

Darn, we guessed salt. That's some crazy lookin' kitty litter. Maybe Mikey would cover up her poop if we used that.

Lois Grebowski said...

I was wrong... but then I don't have a kitty to know what the crystals look like (or even know that they exist!).

That's a good mystery!

Ariel said...

Dangit I guess wrong .These are alot of fun :)

The Meezers said...

yay! we gotted it right!!! woo hoo!!!

sorry you didn't get diamonds though

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I personally thought it was rock candy, but as that wasn't one of the choices, I when with the litter crystals. I have Wheat litter in my box, not crystals because it's healthier and I like to dig.

Sorry it wasn't the diamonds, though, I was secretly hoping for your sake that it was.

andophiroxia said...

We girls love the bling!

I know it's #C, but hey, it's great to imagine, right? ;)

The Lazy Iguana said...

How do those litter crystals work?

There are 5 cats here, so there is a lot of poop to deal with.

Angus said...

With a Diva-cat like you, I'd think they were uncut diamonds for your tiara, but I have a feeling it's something a leetle more practical!

Rosie(who else?) said...

.....don't you find they get caught betwixt your toesies?....

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

I knew it was C, but was hoping it was D. I think you should get a new tiara every 6 months. Why? cause then you'd get to model it for us!

Junior said...

I guessed right this time! WOO HOO!!! Although diamonds would be nice.

michico*Adan said...

Wowww.... This is really new for me~!!!!!!
I guess the wrong answer, but, HEY~!!! THANKS For let me know, hehehehe!!

moshix2/aka: sachie said...

I know what it is it is ice cubes! Me has one too! me eat it one time and stick to my tangue. so me no play with it anymore.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

i was hoping they were diamonds! they look just like the ones in my tiara!

smiles, auntie bee

xoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxox

Beezer said...

Wow!
That was a hard mystery. I thought they might be diamonds for a new tiara.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh dear. I hate it when this happened, but we cannot see blogger pictures, but I cheated and looked at the answer!!!

That I could see. Interesting.

I should not have waiting on Monday Mystery because I like to play and I am mad at blogger now.

Poof

Gemini

Rossetti and Kirara said...

We guessed right!!!!! Kirara was hoping it was jewels for a new tiara so you two could be princesses together... Perhaps you'll be getting something sparkly very soon though : )

purrs,

The Kiaton Empire

Tybalt said...

I got it right! I got it right!

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

I am so looking these up!!! My furbabies should pee on pearls!!

Although, I wish they were diamonds for you. Since you so deserve them.

Scout said...

Leaping lizard! I was wrong! I thought it would be diamonds for your tiara but then I went with salt crystals.

Drats! Hate it when I am wrong!

Tara

Team Tabby said...

One of our furcousins uses those litter crystals too, so we guessed right!

Mindy & Moe

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

We guessed C. but momma helped and I had an advantage, she is almost an gemologist.

Mandy said...

LOL, I thought that it was "D. 25 carats in uncut diamonds for my new tiara" since you are such the fashion diva.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Wow! This could have CSI episode! Our human bought those crystals for us once and refused to walk on them! They were just too pretty, that is all. After a day of NOT going in the box, the human took the crystals out and put in the old stuff!

Puuurs from Italy!
Opus and Roscoe

Sophia said...

Wow, we thought it was salt!

DEBRA said...

I still think you need some rocks for your tiara!

Purrssss

Abby

Forty Paws said...

Well we got that wrong!

Very interesting...

Luf, Us

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I knew that one!!! I like to fling them onto the floor so the humans can step on them and crunch them into fine powder.

Chase

Skeezy said...

Wow, I didn't know yoo cood use Tidy Cat krisstuls for tiara dimonds!!!!

Honey P. Sunshine said...

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Rats, we thawt dey were salt crystals but were hoping dey were diamonds fur yoor new tiara. Which yoo sooo deserve.

wildcatsthree said...

We were all wrong! Jackie said your diamonds, Gidget said salt, and Fritz was sure it was his very favorite substance ice that he loves to chase across the kitchen floor. Oh well.....you stumped us Daisy.
jackie, gidget and fritz

p.s. thanks for adding the animal rescue widget. Hope we can all help them out

Sultanfus and Guy said...

We were hoping for diamonds!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Perhaps I should regret not examining Alexi’s litter more closely. Naw, I shouldn’t.

Chairman Mao said...

We guessed "C", too! But that woulda been furry kool if they were diamunds!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Yes, I was right. I use litter crystals too, I like them alot. Before the litter crystals my Mum bought these ones that were made of the same stuff, but round. I liked how they rolled around the floor, but my Mum didn't so we changed to the crystals.

Lorianna said...

I recognized those Daisy! Billie used to track them all over the house and they hurt when you step on them. :)
I wish they were diamonds though. You and Pixie would look so purrty in diamonds!
Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna

Mo said...

Diamonds are a girl-kitty's best friend, but I knew they were litter crystals!
You can't fool Not The Mama!

(Okay, that's not true... this is the first Monday Mystery I've gotten right in a while...)

:)

Monty Q. Kat said...

Wow, my crystal thingies are blue...maybe they're sapphires?

Cindy said...

Daisy- could you help me with something important? This morning I visited Wild Cats Three and they had a post about the animals in shelters and how you can click to help support them. Because I think this is such an important cause, I created a contest to help promote it. If you could stop by and click on the Contests and Challenges link near the top of my blog (http://contrarychristian.blogspot.com) and help spread the word about this contest, it would really be a big help to the animals. I know you've already put the widget on your blog, but I'll still count you as an entrant if you leave a comment. Thank you so much for your help!

jenianddean said...

Daisy - That was a great Monday Mystery! I had no idea what that stuff was. My mom has talked about buying us that kind of litter, but she still just buys us the regular Tidy Cat.

Thanks for a great MM!

TheSlyCat said...

Hi Daisy,
I have tagged you for a meme!
Have a good one!
Sly

PB & J said...

We hope that they are diamonds and not litter crystals, we don't like them as much as diamonds! Plus when Mommy tried to get us to use the crystals the kept getting stuck in our paw floofs (well, mine and Jake's anyway)!

Pearl

The Devil Dog said...

We were wrong. Maybe it is because we do not use litter boxes. Oh well. Hi, Daisy!

Roxy & Lucky

Eric and Flynn said...

We wuz rite, but it would haf been better if it wuz diamonds.

Sarge Charlie said...

I GOT IT.......I GOT IT...... YAY, HOOT, YAY, I GOT IT.

The Furry Fighter said...

oh blummin hell i got it wrong! i could have sworn it was salt cyrstals! my meowmie has a GROSS photo of a fly sticking its long tongue into a sugar crystal - she took the picture on holiday in India on her Macro camera, you can see all the hairs on the fly's legs!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

I, too, was hoping they were diamonds, but I guessed correctly: litter crystals!

Cute quiz, Daisy dear!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Wrigley & Cobalt said...

We were both wrong! We guessed salt. We have never seen litter crystals before. Ours looks like, well I don't know...it's gray.

Princess said...

I thought it looked like big chunks of salt.

So, you are getting a new tiara???
Wonderful

Chen & Ollie said...

Daisy, we were really hoping it was D for you but we had a feeling it was C! We loved feeling like scientists - thanks!
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

SophieKitty said...

Aw! I can't believe I didn't get the right answer cuz that's the litter I use!

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

I got it right! Hehe...

The scratches on my leg are healing up nicely. Thanks for being such sweet kitty, Daisy. The Spice Cats send their purrs and love.

AVCR8TEUR said...

I guessed right, but I think they can still be used on your new tiara.

Karen Jo said...

Yay! I got it right. I was hoping it was diamonds for you, though, Daisy.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Wrong this week. Ack.

I thought for sure it was salt. That looks like what we put down in snow or ice so we can walk safely. Well, safer.

Ruis said...

Oh, I was totally wrong, here goes my CCSI carrier...:-(

I hoped it were 25 carats in uncut diamonds for your tiara, but I guessed it were icecubes.

One lesson I learned: Always use the magnifying glass before you guess. (I did not...)

Aniemother said...

You totally should demand diamonds in your litter box next time, that's the right thing for a LADY like yourself.

Samantha & Tigger said...

Drats we were wrong! Those are pretty cool looking litter bits! We love your Monday Mysteries!
