For the Kitties- Jelly Beans Giveaway

This contest has ended. Thanks to all that entered!
On top of being the woman who carried her dog in a purse, I'm also the crazy cat lady. Well, before I had Ella anyways. We have 4 cats all over the age of 11. The oldest, Pepper, was rescued from a river 15 years ago. Then, my baby boy Outkast was born in 1995. I helped pull him out of his mom since she was having problems giving birth. He became my side kick and never played with the other kittens, that's how he became Outkast... not because of the band. In 97, Outkast's mom was hit by a car and I then adopted Tiagra. Sounds like T-I-gra. Then in 98, around Halloween, I had the desire to get a black cat and bought Mo Jo. Apparently you can't adopt black cats in the months of September and October here so I bought him from a pet store.

Before Ella, the kitties were spoiled with catnip toys weekly, treats and other fun things. Now, I just don't have the money to spend $5 for 1 toy. So, I went on a hunt for handmade cat toys and came up with some awesome toys on Etsy. If you don't know about Etsy, you've got to check them out!!! Etsy is made up of individuals who sell unique handmade merchandise at great prices.

I came across Casbah Kitten and fell in love with their organic catnip toys. All of their toys are made from Eco felt. Eco felt is made with post consumer recycled plastic which is transformed into a soft felt. Casbah Kitten also grows their own organic catnip outside of their studio window! And it totally passed my kitties test. Most people overlook Eco-friendly products when buying pet products. I know I haven't seen them at Petsmart or other local pet stores. So all it takes is a few internet searches to find tons of great toys, treats, and other supplies for your pets.

My kitties were sent a bag of 7 Jelly Beans from Casbah Kitten and the inner kitten was brought out in all of them. Since they all are older, they don't play as much as they used to. I was really happy to see them running around batting the Jelly Beans and rolling around playing. I love the vibrant colors and they are easy to find hidden around the house. The Jelly Beans are also the perfect size to be carried around. Plus you get 7 Jelly Beans in a bag for only $7!
Here is a picture of the happy kitties.
Pepper went into hiding when I went outside with the Jelly Beans, so he missed out on the photoshoot. But he did get a Jelly Bean and was a happy fat cat. Tiagra and Pepper are our outside kitties since they have issues with marking their territory.

  42. Mr T and Dewey would love the Cardinal Fatberd. Would be their way of getting back at the real cardinal who sits outside their favorite window and mocks them for their inability to "get" him. Darn Cardinal!

    ReplyDelete
  43. The birdies are cute but don't think my 3 fluffy ones would pay them much attention as they have a budgie named Cleo as a sister so birds to not interest them. Ha! Ha! Know they would love the jelly beans but my favorite is the ladybugs as I love anything ladybug.
    My Lucky could be Outkast's twin and he is named Lucky because my neighbor clipped him with pruning shears while doing his hedge. He brought the bleeding thing to me and I stopped the bleeding and hauled him off to the vet. A couple of stitches did the job but vet said he was only about 6 weeks and we have no idea how he got in the hedge. None of the neighbors had kittens but anyway Lucky seemed appropriate. We had a bit of a rough patch as he was so undernourished but he was determined to live and I was determined he was going to and that was 3 years ago.
    Also I get your newsletter.

  44. These jelly beans are too cute, my cats would just love them, and maybe it would stop them from catching all the baby squirrels.
    Monarch Butterfly Dangling Toy is my favorite, it's so cute! And i've seen my cats go after the real thing.
    Thank you for the chance to win.
