Hi everyone! Last night at 5:00 Central, I used the Random Name Generator to pick a winner for the FunKitty Doorway Dangli.
I'm so excited! But I want everyone to know... if you didn't win, don't feel bad. There will be more giveaways coming up. (The only problem is, Mama says most of the companies she's talked to are sending dog things. Thats great for Trixie and Lily, but I want more cat things!
Okay. Here it goes. The winner is...
I could not be happier with the winner! Its not that I don't love the rest of you. But, you see, Sammie and Avalon are actually doggies, and they were entering for their sister Ozzie, who is a cat. Ozzie just recently went through a horrible ordeal.
She was an indoor/outdoor cat. She came and went from the house as she pleased, having her own kitty adventures. But then last week, her family noticed she was missing. They searched and searched for days!
They were beginning to think that Ozzie was really lost. Then they heard from the Humane Society. A strange woman had called them and asked them to pick up a cat that she's been keeping in her garage for four days. The cat had a badly hurt leg.
Nobody knows why the woman kept the injured kitty in her garage for so long. And really... does it matter? Its pretty much a miracle that the lady did end up calling the Humane Society, and that they realized this was the same cat who had been reported missing.
The sad news? Poor Ozzie's leg was so badly injured. In fact, the veterinarian explained that it was "shattered like crystal." The leg had to be amputated.
So now, Ozzie is a three-legged cat. She is also going to be an indoor-only cat from now on. Ozzie is now at home, recovering, and getting used to being three-legged. (Animals usually handle the loss of a leg pretty well. Our Mama had a roommate with a three-legged cat who still lived as an outdoor cat and held his own with the neighborhood strays! That cat's name was Boo Radley!)
So. I am very happy that the FunKitty Doorway Dangli is going to the brave, beautiful Ozzie kitty!
