Hi everybuddy!  Once again, we’re joining with Romeo the CatFURminator and other pet bloggers to celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day on April 27 to help spread the word about the importance of regular grooming to prevent hairballs.

This year to celebrate, the FURminator people asked all the participating pet bloggers to be FURminated and then create a Celebrity Fur Creature out of our furs.  The “Fur Celebrities” were entered into a contest sponsored by FURminator, and the winner will receive a $1000 donation to its favorite pet charity!

Well, we’ll do anything for charity, so we let ourselves be FURminated and our mom created our Celebrity Fur Creature.  From the 35 entries, FURminator selected 5 finalists that their Facebook fans could vote for to win the top prize.  All of the entries are great!!  Click HERE to see them all.

Our Fur Celebrity wasn’t selected as a finalist, but you should see the ones that were.  They’re terrific!!  Click HERE to see them…and if you’re on Facebook, you can vote for your favorite!!  Voting ends on April 20, and the winner will be announced on National Hairball Awareness Day, April 27.

Now, let me introduce you to our Celebrity Fur Creature…Furry Potter!

Well, hello, there!  As that big orange cat said, my name is Furry Potter!!  I’m made up of fur from the 3 Island Cats.  Can you tell which cat’s fur is what part of me?  Let me help you out…my head and hands are from Wally…my glasses, mouth, wand and quidditch broom are from Ernie…and my hair and eyes are from Zoey!

Impedimenta!  Impedimenta!!

Oh no!  That spell is supposed to stop anything coming towards me. It obviously isn’t working!  I guess being made of fur doesn’t give me the same powers as the real Harry Potter!  Now, c’mon big kitty…be nice to me!!

  1. We think that fur celebrity is wonderful. All your furs sure made a great person. Good for you to do this. Those hairballs are bad things. Hope all have a great day.

  2. Oh goodness, I remember that! My mom says she hates to spend the money on a furminator unless and until she knows I would tolerate it. I am brushed each day though and we MAY be making headway in the hairball manufactur. I don’t seem to be horking up as many. xox

  3. The Furminator ROCKS! Mommy LOVES it and furminates all of us, except for Whisky (she’s single coated so cannot be furminated) and the guinea pigs.
    Please don’t eat Furry Potter, Wally. 🙂

  4. What a good idea to make your very own Harry Potter – we hope he does lots of magic for you. If your Mom collects enough hair she could perhaps make a Hagrid to keep him company.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. diego-san is a big supporter of national hairball awareness day because of his love for being furminated. your furry potter entry is a sure winner.

  6. That’s a great fur celebrity!! We just love all the talent out there!

    Tanner and Smokey like the furminator, but Devon doesn’t…of course he doesn’t like to be brushed with a normal brush either!

  7. WOW, your Furry Potter is fantastic!!!!!

  8. We cannot believe Furry Potter didn’t make the finals! Totally pawsome!

  9. We’re laffin at Furry Potter and Wally in that last picture! We think all of the entries are super and we’ve been voting for Cory’s entry (HISS).

  10. Love that Furry Potter – and such a witty name too. We’re off to see the other entries now. Well done for helping raise awareness of hairballs, it is an easily preventable problem.

  11. well, he may not have made the finals, but we think he looks great (and we think Wally thinks he looks tasty)

  12. We love your fur celebrity! We are proud of our mom for turning our furs into
    “Hiss”, but we are in last place in the voting so we are sad….Figgy and I contributed our furs. It’s a miracle that mom was able to pin the squirmy Figgy long enough to steal his furs.

  13. What a great contest and all the fur creatures are great. it’s amazing what you can do with a pile of fur. he he – M always gets a pile from me. She says she’s saving for enough to make another cat. he he

  14. OMC…we LOVE your Furry Potter!!!
    He’s got a pretty big head so we’re suspecting that Wally’s got some major fur in the game. ; )

  15. We love your Furry Potter! That was so cool!!!

  16. OMG! So pretty Furry Potter!!!!!

  17. We I think that is totally incredible gang!!!

  18. 😀 😀 😀 Wally, we loves your Furry Potter!!! It’s a good thing you kitties don’t have magical furs 😉

  19. Good Luck Furry Potter! With think you have joined a good cause and will win 🙂

    the critters in The Cottage xo

  20. Yours took more effort and imagination than what my human cooked up out of Boodie’s fur – I’ll be showing that off (although “showing off” is stretching it) in a few days.

  21. MOL Wally National Hairball Day is my Dad’s birthday….maybe I’ll give him one for his present.
    Hugs Madi

  22. We LOVE Furry Potter 🙂 That last picture is excellent xx

  23. Oh, Wally, don’t kill Furry Potter! We should’ve known about this sooner since TW has a whole mess of my fur that she’s FURminated. I love being FURminated.

  24. We like your Furry Potter, and we love being furminated.

  25. We think Furry Potter is very clever and looks fabulous! We can’t believe he’s not in the finals!

  26. MOL! Furry Potter … that is SO clever! 🙂

  27. Omc, that’s pawsome! He should win! Great pic of you, Wally. xoxo

  28. Better Furry Potter than Youcky hairballs! BTW me thinks he is cute! Your Mommy should hang him from fishing line in the kitchen as a kitchen witch!

  29. I think Harry Potter should’ve made the finals! We does not have the Facebook so we could see the non-finalists but those icky FB peeps wouldn’t even let us see the Final 5! Poopy on them, I say!! I love Cory cat’s Kiss too 🙂

  30. HA! I LOVE it—Yep, Furry Potter oughta won–Maybe you can get his wand and zap everybody? 🙂


  31. Oh, that is too funny! We love that Hairy Furry Potter. You did a great job!

  32. Oh, We love Furry Potter! And the photos with Wally are fantastic!

    We do not like being brushed at all. Our fur is so fine and thin (and wavy) that a FURminator is out of the question. Even the soft pink mitt is often TOO much.

  33. Oh wow, Furry Potter is fantastic. Furminator is a great idea, there are enough of us to make something really big so maybe next year.

  34. That is very cool! What a creative idea. I’m not allowed near my Furminated fur after I ran away with a big ball and proceeded to carry it around like a kitten. I wouldn’t give it up.

  35. Mowzers! That’s a cool Furry Potter!! Mommy cracked up over the “Impedimenta!”

  36. It is such a fun way to raise awareness 🙂 I love love love your Furry Potter very much!

  37. That is amazing! You are so talented!
    Be nice Wally.

  38. what a wonderful and amusing and creative competition… we will have a proper and thorough look at the entries – and loved the ones with Wally (adorable). We love visiting, Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  39. Furry Potter is very impressive! Unfortunately, we just dont have much excess furs. TBT says he probly couldnt even make a mustache fer Mr Potter from our brushed furs unless he shaved us (EEK!).

  40. Furry Potter is so cool! Good luck!

  41. We can’t believe you weren’t in the finalist. Furry Potter is fantastic!
    Way to go guys!!
