Happy Cat World Domination Day! I have a lot of fun planned for you today, but first let me deal with this hat. My human thought it would be fun to make this a quirky, ’80s themed party, but I did not agree! Of all days, Cat World Domination Day is one where a kitty should not have to wear anything. If my human wants to celebrate the ’80s, she can put on her own old clothes that she’s never thrown out.
That’s better! I want to mention that since this is the first Cat World Domination Day without Sparkle, we are doing several special things in her honor. The first one is that we are having a commenthon to benefit her favorite sanctuary that helps cats, Tabby’s Place! For every comment on this post until the end of the June, my human is donating 50 cents to Tabby’s place, up to $50! Let’s see if we can fly through that goal!
Now for refreshments! Just wait til you see who is catering our party.
That’s right — Ashton’s Chicken Emporium! Don’t worry that is not lemonade in the glass — it is chickenade, with a catnip sprig garnish!
Try the appetizers — fried chicken skin bits! I got the idea when I saw them on the Christy Paws blog, so I asked Ashton to do something similar, and wow, are they tasty!
You had better hurry and have some before they are all gone!
I bet you could smell the main dish when you arrived — barbecued chicken! Since I like green stuff, it’s being served on a bed of creamy cole slaw. Try some, or you can skip the slaw — it just means more for me!
I hope you saved room for dessert! It is old fashioned, hand-cranked chicken ice cream sprinkled with premium catnip! Yes, I had a taste already… and yes, I am licking the bowl. It’s that good!
Now, I have a couple of special treats for you, especially those of you who knew and loved Sparkle!
As most of you know, Sparkle’s first book, Dear Sparkle, Advice From One Cat to Another, is available on Amazon Kindle… and until tomorrow, it is available for free! Click here to download your free copy of Dear Sparkle — and if you get it, please remember to leave an honest review! It’s the nice thing to do. After the free offer is over, it will be available for just $1.99 for the next week, and after that, it will be permanently discounted at $2.99, which is two dollars less than it was priced previously.
And I have a second, huge announcement!
Sparkle and my human were working on this book last year when Sparkle passed away. It’s a compilation of her wisdom (and a couple of sections from Binga), based on her blog posts over the years. And it is going to be published! It’s still in the editing stages, but I got to take a look at some of it, and it is amazing! Not to mention that my human’s talent at cover design has greatly improved over the years (yes, she was the one who did this cover mock up). It is tentatively scheduled to come out either in fall of this year, or early in 2016! My human is hoping to set up pre-orders. I will keep you posted!
And now for the giveaways — I know you were waiting for those. Yes, I have more than one!
Here is the BlogPaws swag bag giveaway! It includes treats from Delightables and Pet Naturals, cat food from Against the Grain and Evangers, bunches of toys and more! Plus you get the cool BlogPaws bag to go with it. It’s a U.S. only giveaway because there is so much stuff. To enter, leave a comment and say you did on the Rafflecopter widget! (If Rafflecopter gives you problems, let me know and I will add you manually.)
And yes, there’s a bonus giveaway! You get a chance to win your own Neko Birbug and Telescoping Rod! If you saw my review the other day, you know this toy is more fun than you can imagine! I adore mine, and if you live in the U.S. or Canada, you can win one too. Below is the Rafflecopter widget to enter the Neko Birbug giveaway:
If you are an international reader, you can still enter either giveaway and name a U.S. rescue to receive the prize!
I hope you enjoyed my Cat World Domination Day party! And remember: we cats are in charge — use the power wisely!
