Nov 202013



Hey everybuddy!  Thanks for all the great comments on my Monster Truck for the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby.  I don’t think I’ll win the design contest ‘cuz there are so many other cool cars…Cat Scouts are quite the creative bunch…but I sure enjoyed pawticipating.

Okay…so let me tell you about something that happened last week.  The man in the brown shorts…’cept he was wearing pants ‘cuz it was cold…dropped off a BIG box addressed to me…Wally IslandCat.


Inside the BIG box was some Hills Ideal Balance foods and a Drinkwell water fountain…and a card from the Hills peeps saying “Congratulations!  You won this prize!”  Boy was I surprised ‘cuz I don’t remember entering any contest for this. The mom accused me of sneaking on the computer when she wasn’t around and entering contests.  I’m still not sure how I won it, but I think it might have come from Mousebreath.  Thanks!  It’s a really cool prize.

But here’s the thing…we already have a drinking fountain.  I told the mom that we should give this one away to one of our readers.  So here’s what were gonna do. Leave a comment on this post that you’d like to enter our giveaway to win this Drinkwell water fountain.  Unfortunately, ‘cuz of the size, weight and shipping costs, we hafta limit this to those of you in the U.S. only…sorry.  One comment per family or household, okay?  If you don’t have a blog, make sure you give us an email address where we can contact you if you win.  You have until Saturday, November 23 at 9pm (Island time) in which to enter.  We’ll randomly pick a winner from all the entries, and Ernie will announce the winner on Easy E Sunday.  Good luck!


Whew!  Between working on my Cardwood Derby truck and winning prizes for contests I don’t remember entering, I’m exhausted!  I need a nice long snooze.

  8. That’s a great prize there Wally – we couldn’t enter but Mum wouldn’t have let us try to slide a comment in anyway as she bought us one when we first moved in and we wouldn’t drink from it – she ended up giving it away! Now if the alternative prize is a box of live mouses that would be just the ticket!! Ha!ha!ha!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  9. Wally, you are very funny. Glad you have all your treasures surrounding you while you nap. We got a drinking fountain too by surprise, so please don’t include us in the drawing for that one. We should do the same thing. Take care.

  10. Hey Wally, Don’t forget to get up in time for Campfire. We got that same cool prize while the humans were away. Ours was addressed to Mauricio. We don’t remember entering any contest either. Anyhow, we also have a fountain so we are donating ours to Barn Cat Buddies (the rescue/TNR program Mom works with) for their next Raffle. So, we are not entering your contest. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  11. We already have a fountain, so don’t need to be in the drawing, but we wanted to say Congrats on winning!

  12. That’s very generous of you, Wally. I don’t use the fountain I have so I don’t think I should enter this contest. I mean, if no one else enters, I could give it to Linda for the A Call 4 Paws kitties. They already have the first fountain I wouldn’t use but it may be broked by now. Good luck winning the derby.

  13. Love your play mat Wally – it looks pawesome, btw did it come with catnip???

    Bestest purrs

  14. Hey Wally…you are laying on a Nip N Nap mat like one I have! I have 3 now…I luvluvluv them. And please enter me for the fountain…I can give it to Cuzin Leo as a surprise early Xmas gift. Paw hugs, Savvy

  15. Wally you hit the jackpot, Huh? Can Miss Kitty enter your giveaway? I want fountain alone…I have to share! Oh, congrats on winning all that loot Wally!
    Miss Kitty

  16. Congrats for winning your non-entry contest! I bet Sophie would love the drink fountain! Oh, and great job creating your derby car.

  17. Our fountain has been broken for months! We could really use one of those.

  18. Don’t enter me in the contest ’cause I’m in Canada but I just wanted to say that… so glad to hear the man in shorts had the good sense to put on pants when it got cold. Some of those shorts-clad men don’t have the sense to do that.


    PS. Not just men, either. Picture it… oh wait! that’s the inspiration for a blog post! Yoo-hoo! YOO-HOO!!!

  19. Don’t you just love winning contests that you didn’t enter 😉 I could use a drinkwell water fountain, please enter me, thank you. edithjchase at gmail dot com. Your monster truck was awesome too!

  31. Hi Wally, you are so nice. I think the blurpy girl would tear that to pieces in our house. What a cool fountain!

    That monster truck is pawsome. You are super creative and I’m sure if you don’t win you’ll be right up there

    Enjoy a nice nap after all that work

  32. That was a great prize you won Wally. Me and Eric won a fountain from Angus Mhor a few years ago, but mum had to turn it off at night because Eric used to dig all the water out of it and flood the kitchen. You can see it here:

  33. (1) Your Monster Truck is really cool! (2) We’re glad your delivery guy wears pants. (3) We would love to be entered in the fountain give-away.

  34. Oh my momma misses me SO much she wants to snorkel each and every one of you as she tries to help me thru blogs. I am on my iPawd in jail though.

  35. you sure look comfy in that last pic Wally! We will pass on the cool giveaway since we have 3 fountains here!

  36. That is very generous of you, Wally! We would love to be entered into the giveaway for the fountain!

    P.S. Your car looks great!

  37. nice package, Wally! oh, and the stuff in your prize box is cool too 😉 you are very generous to offer the fountain as a give away. our mom won’t let us enter since we all ready have a fountain that we don’t use 😀 good luck to everybuddy! enjoy your snooze!

    PIp, Smidgen, Minnie, HOllie

  38. Wow, that’s certainly a cool surprise, Wally! We already have a fountain, so you don’t have to enter us. But somekitty is really going to enjoy that. 🙂

  39. Kodiak and Kenai say they would love this and they promise to actually use it if they win. Plus, they’ll play with the box.

  40. Oh me! Me! Please, me! I want the Drinkwell, Wally my good man. I could maybe see my way to taking Zoey off your hands along with the water fountain if you wanted.

  41. Dude. My mummy loves you enough, do you really have to show off your tum? Now she’s thinking of painting me orange *gRumble*

    We would like to please enter and donate to a US friend if we’re selected 🙂

  42. Guys, can we enter and win for a pal of ours down in Texas. Chris is a blind kitty but we KNOW he would LOVE THIS!!!

  43. Excellent giveaway! Hey Wally, we don’t blame you for snoozing after all that excitement!

  44. We’re a day late, but only by an hour our time 😉 If it’s not too, too late, we love to win. Perhaps we’d stop licking soap scum from the sink. Probably not, but it’s worth a try! Sounds like you definitely needed a snooze!

  45. I got one too! The mom was too sick to help me with my cardwood derby car so I could not pawticipate 🙁 – Nicky

  46. Hi Wally!! That’s a pawsome fountain!

    We already have two fountains, so if we win, we will donate it to our local cat shelter! 🙂

  47. Wally that is so neat and so nice of you to offer to give it away! We already have one for the kitties but we are sure whoever gets it will love it!

  48. Wally, you make relaxed look so easy! 🙂 We are in Canada so no entry for us but may the best cat win! 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  49. We don’t have a fountain so do enter us in the giveaway!

  50. Wally we got that same box and we know we didn’t enter any contest, so we have NO Idea how we got selected. We also got the drinking fountain so please make sure not to include us because we don’t want to take that slot away from someone who doesn’t’ have one! But we agree it was a great box!

  51. This is so generous of you! We don’t have a fountain either and are pretty sure Sadie would love it! Thank you!

  52. What a great thing that you won all those prizes for doing nothing. That just proves that napping is the best occupation in the world.

    What a great contest you have going…. wish we could enter, but HH says that she thinks someone else should win cuz we would just make a mess with a fountain and we tend to chew on cords and stuff and would probably short out the whole house and electrocute ourselves. Such an alarmist!! Anyway, we’ll cheer from the sidelines and see who wins.

    Have a great day.

    hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

  53. Wally I think your truck is definitely a winner so don’t count yourself out yet buddy!!! I also think it’s way cool that you got some prizes! That’s totally way cool……….but exhausting so have a nice long nap!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  54. Wally, you sure look irresistible in that bottom picture. Sorry we haven’t been around. The lady blames it on her work. We saw your post on FB and would love to enter the drawing. It’s so nice of you to give this away!

  55. Concatulations for your prize ! It’s very generous to give the fabulous fountain to another kitty ! Mum told us that we cannot enter the contest because we’re out of the US, but we say good luck to all our furry pals ! Purrs

  56. You are such a kind and giving kitty, Wally! We would love a chance to win the fountain as our bit the dust several years ago. Thank you!!

  57. So cool of you to give the second fountain away! We’d love to enter to win it. Everyone here is fascinated with water. And Oui Oui likes to sit on the side of water bowls, then she tips them. We’re betting she won’t sit on a fountain. Thanks Wally & TLWTYH!

  58. We need one!!!! We’d LOVE to enter!!!

  59. that would be cool to have around the house~

  60. Wally, you just snooze on, your life must be full of surprises when you wake up 😉 Pawkiss 🙂


    (translation: but Momma, your keyboard is nice and WARM, and I wanted ta say Hi to Wally…!)
