We are so far behind we have threatened to post photos of our behinds to prove it, but we'd rather do a regular post instead.
Today we would like to post photos of the Artsy Casty raffle prize we won last month. We would like to thank Vampy Victor who first won the raffle but asked that it be re-raffled. Then Gypsy and Tasha won but asked that the prize be given to us. A special thank you from all of us to Gypsy & Tasha, Moki (who mailed the raffle prize) and ML (she knows what she did) -- and of course to Mr. Milky of Artsy Catsy.
The items are highlighted by 2 of our Gizzy Quilts from Millie's mom. (These didn't come with the raffle prize. We already had them.) She is making more Gizzies, so if you don't have one, be sure to check out her sidebar for information on how to order one.
As soon as the box is opened, Crystal climbs in to check out the contents.
He's thinking. (And keeping any other kitty out of the box.)
Crystal: My name is Crystal and I approve this raffle prize.
Today we pressure Jan to finally take photographs. Percy is the first to pose with the prize items. The big white cat is a birdhouse. (You can click on each photo to enlarge it.) Buddy offered to pierce Cotton's or Cyndi's ears - or one ear of each cat - but they both declined and so by unanimous decision, since Jan already has holes in her head -- uh, we mean in her ears, she gets the dangling cat earrings.
Percy: Wait, I see a four leaf clover. Is this for me?
Percy: Oh, what a cute kitty. And just the right size to play with. (This photo was taken just a moment before Percy grabbed the charm and took off with it.)
Now, Cameron checks out everything while Samaritan watches.
Cameron: Is one of these mine? Can I have the birdhouse? With a bird in it?
Samaritan: I don't smell any woofy biscuits, Percy. Do you?
Cameron: Hmmmm. No, Sam, there aren't any woofy biscuits, but this charm does smell interesting. Moki mailed the box, so he must have played with it.
Samaritan: Jan, these are all cat related. Where are the woofy items for Buddy, Merci and me? What do you mean, it was a cat raffle? Where's the cat?
Percy pounces and leaves a mess. The photo session is over.
We just couldn't resist this photo from I Has A Hotdog!
