Hi everybuddy!
There sure are a lot of ornaments on this Christmas tree…

or as we like to call them…toys!
Today I’m flashing back to December 2010
where we had “Ornament Show and Tell”
and shared some of our kitty ornaments with all of you.

 We’ve got lots of kitty ornaments on our Christmas tree.
We thought we’d show you some of them…

 

 These are a couple of angel kitties.
The one on the right has dangly legs!

 

  

 Here’s a kitty sticking his head through a wreath…
do you think he got stuck there??
And one hanging onto a fishie…don’t let go!!

 

 

 This funky snowman is holding a kitty.
And this other kitty has a star as an eye and rings like a bell!

 

  

Check out this kitty hanging by a string of lights!
We think the little girl kitty in the basket is quite impressed!
And this other one is a giant kitty head!!

 

  

Of course, we each have our own ornament!

 

And one for the kitties that came before us!

 We won’t whap any of the kitty ornaments…
that just wouldn’t be right.
But everything else on the tree is free game!!

Hope you enjoyed our re-run of Ornament Show and Tell!!

wally-closeup1Hey everybuddy!  Today I’m announcing the winner of our PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain giveaway.

But before I tell you who won, I thought I’d share some Island Christmas memories from the past with you.

Y’know, I love the Christmas tree as much as the other cats around here…if not more.  It’s always been a great source of entertainment for me.  Even as a little kit, I enjoyed playing with all the toys…er, I mean…ornaments on it.

Here…let me show you.  Yep, that’s right…I’ve got some Baby Wally Christmas pictures to share. Try to control the squeeing, okay?

I had to climb in the tree…

to get to the fun ornaments.
Look out, Santa…here I come!
*BOP*

And after all the playing…
it was time to relax under the tree with my BFF, Mr. Leopard.

Yep, those were some good memories.  But now on to announcing the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain giveaway winner.  Thanks to everybuddy who entered.  And thanks to PetSafe for giving us the opportunity to have this fun giveaway.  

The winner is..or should I say the winners are…the kitties at Kitty Cat Chronicles!  Congratulations! We know you guys are gonna love your new fountain!  Look for an email from us so we can have it sent to you.

Ho ho ho everybuddy!  It’s me…Santa Wally here with Kris Kringle Ernie.  A few weeks ago, some of us blogging kitties and our humans got together and decided that we would do something special this holiday season to help the homeless kitties in our communities.  We would donate toys, treats and food to our local shelters and rescues, and encourage others to do the same.  And so the Santa Kitty Toy Hop was born.

Us Island Cats are pretty lucky…we have a great forever home, we have lots of good foods to eat and lots of toys to play with.  We love to help those kitties who aren’t as fortunate as us.  Hey, Kris Kringle Ernie…why don’t you tell everybuddy what we did for the Santa Kitty Toy Hop?

Sure, Santa Wally.  Y’know, we have a great shelter here on the island that we donate to regularly and it gets plenty of other support from the community.  So for the Santa Kitty Toy Hop, we decided to help a private rescue group that doesn’t get as much support.  That rescue is Winnie’s Wish which is run by Miss Chrystal.  You may know Miss Chrystal from her blog, Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with Your Coffee).  She, along with her family, rescues and fosters abandoned animals and works hard to find them forever homes.

Rather than send toys, we sent Miss Chrystal some much needed food…two huge bags of kibble and two cases of stinky goodness.  The food was delivered last week by the man in brown shorts, and Miss Chrystal sent us this picture of it after it arrived.

Now the kitties of Winnie’s Wish will have full bellies for Christmas.

We hope all of you will consider donating to Winnie’s Wish or your local shelter or rescue, if you can.  It doesn’t have to be much…a bag of food or litter, some cat toys or even a few green papers. They will appreciate it!  Let’s make sure all the shelter kitties have a Happy Holiday!

This is my new favorite spot to get my easy on.
The mom’s happy that I’m under the tree and not climbing in it.
Little does she know that I did some climbing during the night.  Heheheh.
Oh how I wish the Christmas tree could stay up all year round!

Hey everybuddy.  The other day, the man in the blue shorts…well, actually he was wearing pants because it’s cold now…delivered this package with our names on it.  I just know it’s from our Secret Paws but you-know-who won’t open it for us until Christmas.  I say pffffttttt to that…and I’m taking matters into my own paws and opening it myself.

*gnaw…chew…gnaw…gnaw*

Sheesh…at this rate it will be Christmas by the time I get it open!

fountain-review1Hey everybuddy.  Ernie here.  Did you know us cats need about one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day to stay properly hydrated?  Let’s see…I weigh just over 12 pounds.  That means I need about 12 ounces of water a day.  Now some of that water I get through eating my canned stinky goodness.  But another way is by actually drinking water, which most of us cats don’t do enough of. So it’s important to make drinking water more attractive to us cats.  One way to do this is by using a drinking fountain for our water.

Making sure pets drink enough water is important to the PetSafe® people, and they have created several drinking fountains to help us kitties maintain proper hydration.

As the only pet fountains developed by a veterinarian, PetSafe® Drinkwell® pet fountains were invented in 1994 by Dr. Mary Burns, after noticing that her cat would only drink from a running faucet and would wait all day for Dr. Burns to turn the faucet on for her.  In addition to providing the moving water source that cats (and dogs, too) seek, PetSafe® Drinkwell® pet fountains aid with proper metabolism, energy conversion and temperature regulation, as well as promote healthy kidney function and prevent urinary tract infections and diseases in pets.

The PetSafe® peoples contacted us and asked if we would like to try one of their fountains…the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain.  The PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain is a stylish, ceramic fountain that freshly filters and continuously recirculates 70 ounces of free-flowing water, keeping it cleaner and fresher than a normal water bowl.

Other features include:

  • Ceramic design is more hygienic, easy to clean, and looks great in the home.
  • Dual patented free-falling streams add oxygen for freshness and encourage pets to drink more.
  • Upper and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for pets.
  • Low-voltage 12V system with submersible pump for safe and quiet operation.

PetSafe® sent us the Pagoda fountain in the newest color…Himalayan Blue (which is a great color, by the way).  It also comes in redfountain-review2 and white.

Now, we have to admit, we already have the Pagoda fountain in white and we LOVE drinking from it.  Here’s what we love about this fountain:

  • It looks really good…the design is very stylish.
  • It’s very easy to put together and maintain…for the mom’s benefit.
  • It’s pretty quiet…the running water is very zen-like.
  • We’ve had other fountains that splashed water over the side, but not the Pagoda fountain.
  • And we use it!  It’s no good having a nice looking fountain if us kitties won’t use it, right?

fountain-review-3

Hey Wally!  How’s that water?

Very refreshing, Ernie!
*SLURP*

We give the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain BIG paws up!  If you’re interested in getting a drinking fountain, you should definitely consider this fountain.

Now here’s the best part.  The nice PetSafe® peoples have generously offered to give one our readers a PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain in the Himalayan blue color. Unfortunately, PetSafe® will only ship within the U.S., so for those of you outside the U.S. who would like to enter, you can designate a furiend or shelter in the U.S. to get the prize if you win.  Just use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  The giveaway runs through December 14, 2014.  Good luck!

Disclaimer:  We got the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain for free when we agreed to do this review and giveaway, but that’s all we got and it didn’t influence our opinion at all.
