Giving and Receiving

A couple of weeks ago, I was one of the winners in Baby Patches' Halloween Costume Contest. Here is one of the presents I picked out for my prize: a new Cat Dancer! This is one of my most favorite toys of all time, and our old one was getting worn out.
I had tons of funs playing with it!
And Harley had a good time, too!
And our prizes came in the perfect box. If you combine a box with a toy, you can DOUBLE your good time!
Thanks, Baby Patches! After I got tired of playing, I started thinking about all the kitties in shelters who don't have such a good time. I'll bet they would LOVE some toys and treats for Christmas!
So Harley and I decided to donate to the Santa Paws Drive! It is a Christmas toy drive dedicated to helping dogs and cats. Six different shelters will benefit! You can choose to donate money (starting from only one green paper!) or toys. Harley and I picked out the big cat gift bundle. After we donated, we felt very happy inside. We hope some kitties will have a little bit of extra holiday joy this season.

Congrats on winning, Daisy! We love our cat dancer too!! Our mom hooked it to a chair somehow so we can play with it all day long if we want.

We donated to the Santa Paws Drive too! We know the shelter kitties will love all the toys and treats they are gonna get!!

Daisy, that last picture of you so sooooo cute. We love that toy too. It is a lot of fun.
We also have donated to the Santa Paws Drive. That is such a great thing to do. We know the shelter cats will have a much better Christmas. Hope you have a fun day.

Great idea - we have one of those cat dancer toys too. we also are trying to help save some kitties from death row - info on our blog.

Caren Gittleman said...

I used to have a "Cat Dancer" too but it broke :(

Now my new fave is a rubber pom pom on the end of a wire wand (kind of like the "Cat Dancer")

You are such a generous and thoughtful kitty!

I asked my Mom about donating and she said we are DEFINITELY going to do it before the holiday season is over!

Love, Cody

Congrats on winning the contest (you always do have the BEST costumes!). A new Cat Dancer was a great choice! Reminds me that I should get ours out for Moo... I totally forgot about it!

And big thanks for spreading the word about Santa Paws Drive! We hope we can give lots of holiday cheer to our furry friends in shelters!

We love cat dancers too! We like the Santa Paws Drive idea, thanks for letting us know.

Josie said...

Cordelia Joy *loves* her Cat Dancer toy! I had to buy a new one to have on hand 'just in case'. I think it's lovely that you donated to a good cause! I'm going to donate to our local organization-PAW this year. I'm hoping to do approx. 5 dollars for each adult person I have to buy for this year (parents, in-laws, spouse)-and my two kitties too! I'm very excited ^_^

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That is an excellent prize!

Tammy said...

Daisy - you and Harley rock!! What a great idea to donate! :)

StarSpry said...

Congratulations on winning that contest! How fun to receive a toy AND a box to play it :D

The Santa Paws Drive sounds like a wonderful cause. I'm going to help out, too!

Eric and Flynn said...

Concats on winning the competition. We have never seen one of those toys but we know most kitties love them.
Every year mum looks through all our toys to see what we don't play with any more. Then she washes them and when they are dry she marinates them in nip. Then she puts them in a package with lots of packets of treats and takes them to the local shelter for the kitties for Christmas.

Wyatt's Corner said...

Congratulations on your win and thanks for donating and making me aware of the opportunity. Time to go hunt for some green paper to give.

Lin said...

Oh, we like the cat dancer here too! Our grandma volunteers at a shelter and she makes sure all the kitties get LOTS of loving and playtime. She said a lot of the volunteers like the dogs, so she is known as the "cat lady" there. I'm sure all those kitties at the shelter will love new toys.

Junior and Orion said...

We have to get Meowm to get us a cat dancer!

Very nice of you to donate to Santa Paws. Meowm is crunching her numbers to see if she can help out.

Sweet Praline said...

The toy looks like a lot of fun and how nice of you to donate to such a wonderful cause.

My kitties like homemade toys best - you know like candy and gum wrappers and any little bit of crinkly paper...Silly kitties!

The Cat Dancer is totally pawsome! And so is the Santa Paws Drive!

We've already donated this year to Santa Paws. It's a great cause.

Pierro said...

Love your snuggly hat! I think the ear flaps are so you do not have to hear the constant meowing from little brothers... no matter how huge they are!

Mom gives food and toys to the shelter several times a year. It makes all of us feel very content

This is a geat idea Daisy, we will get our Mommy to donate, too. We give our old towels and blankies and beds to our vet, who passes them on the homeless folks who have pets (he does charity vet care).

Keiko said...

Congrats on winning Daisy, that cat dancer looks like sooo much fun, and the box is the purrfect size!! You are sooo cute in that last picture with your sweet expression!

Donating to Santa Paws is a wonderful idea. We think we'll donate to shelter kitties in Australia!!!

That seems like a good toy. We have some wand toys with fevvers and fuzzies, but not like that one.
