Today is a big day around our house. Not only is it our country’s birthday, it is the day I celebrate my birthday and Echo and Ocean celebrate their gotcha day. You can read here why we celebrate on the Fourth.
We already get great food with our homemade raw, but we usually get something special to eat and even extra treats. Mom gives us lots of extra hugs — sometimes I think she could keep some of those! We are very grateful to be such lucky kitties and we want to share with our furiends so please take a minute to enter my giveaway. Just use the Rafflecopter below.
BlogPaws Swag Giveaway
Mom hasn’t even finished unpacking yet and hasn’t sorted through all the goodies from BlogPaws, but let me assure you that we have TONS of stuff and the BlogPaws swag giveaway will be really SUPER. There is so much stuff, there might even be two winners!
Besides the BlogPaws swag bag, we got lots of samples from vendors. Some were especially generous, like Rocco & Roxie Supply Co., one of the sponsors of BlogPaws.
As if that weren’t enough, when mom went to the Cat Writers’ Association banquet, she got a swag bag there. Some of our blogging friends didn’t have room to take all their items home since they were flying so you can thank Ms. Savvy Do of Savannah’s Paw Tracks for some of the items.
Sorry my international furiends, the giveaway is open to US residents only due to the cost of shipping to other countries and mom said something about customs issues. If you live out of the US and have a US shelter you would like to donate to if you win, then by all means, enter away and good luck!
Since we got back from our trip to BlogPaws and Orange County, mom has been really busy — too busy to do much art, even for our big celebration, so she is recycling some artwork from last year. She did take the time to change the date at least!
I hope you all have a happy and safe Fourth and that you get to spend it with family and friends. Good luck in the giveaway!
Happy Independence Day, USA

Happy Birthday Christy! Happy Gotcha kittens! They both look so cute together. I tried to celebrate Mimi’s gotcha day but she seems doesn’t care about it. So, this year I will give her lots of hug and a big fish for the big day of her life.
and good luck to all of you who enter the giveaway!
We pretty much celebrate all year long but he gets a special treat on his birthday and his gotcha day is right after Christmas so he doesn’t really get anything for that because there are so many treats and presents already.
we celebrate by giving them new toys and treats
My cats are so spoiled every day is like their birthday! The boyfriend has them so well trained they all run to the kitchen when he opens the deli drawer, waiting for their share of honey ham….
Happy Birthday and Gotcha Day Week to you and your fur sibs! Clove and Kaspars are so impressed you traveled all that way in the car with your Mom, that’s very brave. Thank you for the chance to win some swag!
Neat Caturday Art. Good luck to all who entered your giveaway.
Wow, you had a lot going on. A belated Happy Gotcha Day, Echo and Ocean, and a belated Happy Birthday, Christy.

I really don’t celebrate my birthday, always busy taking everyone everywhere
Sorry we are late Christie. We wish you a belated Happy Birthday and Echo and Oceon a belated Happy Gotcha Day.
We would like to enter the contest and have an address in the states you could send the prize to. We don’t normally win at the best of times so we’re not worried about winning.
Leonardo gets a can of the best Genova Tuna (which usually needs to say I don’t let him have). He’s a senior, so after that he sleeps.
I don’t know my kitties birthday because he was rescued so I can only estimate the month but on the day I got him I give him extra cuddles and a new toy!

My girl gets a new toy, a special meal, and tons of lovin’. We also like to celebrate her birthday by donating toys and food to the shelter where she was rescued.
That’s a great way to celebrate!
Happy Birthday! Since my Gotcha Day is in January, the peeps usually buy me something big for Christmas and use it as a Gotcha Day present to. I post about it but nothing special is done cos I’m so spoiled every other day.
We get treats, new toys and extra attention on our birthdays and gotcha days. Happy birthday, Christy! Happy gotcha day, Echo and Ocean!
