Sammy-Joe Hosts The VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!

Hi, everyone! Yesterday a box came in the mail. And there was something in it for me! Mama told me that the nice lady from Premier Pet Products sent me a FunKitty Doorway Dangli!
A Doorway Dangli is a special cat toy that hangs from the doorway. There are several things I like about it.

First, it dangles! If you are a cat, you know what I mean. All the cats in the house, raise your paw if you like stuff that dangles! That alone is enough for me!

Then... it has a long, furry strip coming out of it! The furry strip looks like a feather. Do you love to bat at long, furry feathers that are hanging out of dangly things? Me too!

And finally... this is the best part... It has a compartment inside where your Mama can put cool things, like treats, and catnip! When you whack the dangly thing around, the cool things fall out!!!!!!!

Mama said she knew right away that I was going to love this. But there is one problem. I like to be in my secret fort, and I like to be in the room where my secret fort is located... but I get a little nervous about the rest of the house these days. Because I've been having trouble getting along with my doggie sisters, if i want to go somewhere else in the house, I tend to just dash through the house to get to a room I want to get to. So Mama thought, if she hung it in the doorway of my room, I wouldn't get close enough to play with it. She was also afraid that the doggies would get the treats out of it. BAD DOGGIES!

So, Mama solved the problem by hanging the Doorway Dangli from a pipe above my fort. (But first she put some catnip into it for me!)

Right away, I started batting it around and playing with it!


Mama got really happy! See, these days I don't play much. I am getting on the older side, and the doggies make me nervous, so I tend to just walk around and observe the world. But when Mama hung up the Doorway Dangli, I was playing just like a kitten!

Mama took all sorts of pictures. But because it is so dark in my secret fort, the pictures didn't show up, even when Mama tried to photo-edit them. So she went back and took this one. By then, I was all tuckered out and happy from the catnip, so I was just laying there gazing at my Doorway Dangli!


Here's one thats a little bit better..,
















Since the pictures didn't work out so well, Mama said I should show you this video from the Premier website, of a cat playing with a Doorway Dangli. This is just how I was playing! (In fact, that first cat looks a lot like me, doesn't he?)


Some more great things about the Doorway Dangli is that it is adjustable. You can make it hang higher or lower, depending on what your kitty likes. Some kitties like to jump, right?

Also, it has a breakaway system, in case your kitty somehow gets caught on the toy. But, according to the package, you still shouldn't leave pets or kids unsupervised around it, since its a cord dangling from the ceiling. The breakaway system makes it pretty safe, but still,
just in case, Mama says she's going to take it down when she's not home.

Now... here is the best part! The nice lady from Premier Pet Products said she'd give an extra FunKitty Doorway Dangli to one of you! (Don't worry, dogs... there are plenty of giveaways coming up for you!)

I see you are close enough to go visit Freddy in Sharon. We may make mum go, but she says when the weather is better.

Mum made us a nice dangly toy of our own, so we won't need to be the the drawing.

That looks like a great toy but we're not sure we would qualify for your draw since we live one huge ocean away from you!
