NKC Contest

Recently Noelle won a scavenger hunt at the Naughty Kitty Club.  Noelle is of course not a kitty.  She is their first Honorary Dog Member - something that she is very proud of.  She's always going around to the foster cats in the house and reminding them how SHE got adopted, and how SHE is even in a club for kitties, and how they don't even have a home of their own, much less a club membership.  But then they remind her how every Saturday they get to go to the magical land of PetSmart, full of toys and treats and wonderful adventures, and she has to stay home.  And then they remind her how her own mom won't even let her post on her blog, and when they get their own homes they will get their own blogs where they will get to type their blog posts every single day.  It gets quite tiring, listening to them argue back and forth some days.

Barney is the founder of the Naughty Kitty Club, and he and Virgil and Kirzon and Lola and their mom Amy from the House of Cats all sent Noelle a prize for winning the scavenger hunt.  Noelle has a habit of licking things, so of course she licked the box before opening it. 
Tastes like cardboard.

Ooooh, lots of things to lick in here! 

In addition to an awesome custom made Naughty Kitty Club coffee mug, which I kept for myself since I helped Noelle in her scavenger hunt and therefore felt entitled to it, there were many other fun things in the box - even some for the foster kitties! 

Okay mom, you can have the mug...but the rest is mine!

In spite of Noelle's desire to keep everything for herself, she did let the other dogs check out her prize. 

You can look, Riley - but no sniffing!

There were some very fancy dog treats, and I gave each dog a treat.  They were initially a bit suspicious since these were treats sent by cats.  As you can tell in my house, the cats and dogs are not the best of friends, so a little bit of caution before eating a gift from a cat is probably a good thing. 


Are you SURE these are safe to eat??


Smells good to me....


Yummm... s-p-r-i-n-k-l-e-s!!  My favorite!

The treats were quickly gobbled up, and soon there were only crumbs left. 
I'll just finish up these few crumbs here. 

Ziggy wanted to know how he could get his own gift. 
Hey Mom, can I be part of this Naughty Kitty Club too?!

I told him he had to find someone willing to adopt him first and then he could join. He suggested that I ship him off to Malaysia where his biggest admirer lives, but I told him the airfare would be too expensive. 


While Noelle settled down to play with one of her new toys, I took the kitty treats and toys to the cats. 
First I'll carefully lick every inch of this fleece ball...

More on that later.  Here is Rudy enjoying one of the new toys.

Try to take it away, and you will die!!!!


Simon found the cat toy at the bottom of the mug.

Is that a toy I feel in there? I can't see a thing! 

And Sampson decided to see if he could actually fit in the mug. 
Almost...there...

Now, if anyone has any suggestions on how to remove a coffee mug from a cat's head, they would be greatly appreciated.

Great bag of loot.

Regarding the coffee cup, just be sure you want to remove it first. Might come in handy there if you ever need a battering ram.

Slobbers,

Oh my goodnesses! Look at all those Most Beautiful and Delicious prizes! Something fur everydoggie (and kitteh). I don't blame the doggies for being suspicious of stuff sent by kittehs. You can really never be too carefuls. (Oh, mom says that last picture is priceless!)

I love hearing about the cat dog interactions. Is Noelle going to cross over to the other team?

Kari in WeHo said...

congrats! Let us know how the fleece ball does. My girls love to chew on fleece blankets so I have been wanting to try one but am afraid it will die in no time!

JackDaddy said...

Just be thankful it wasn't full of coffee! :)

Pibble said...

hero said...

Really enjoy seeing everyone digging into the loot... I think Samson wants some quite me time amid all the merry making.

Licks, hero

Wow, that was a great prize pazkage! So nice of Noelle to share. :)

Bobby said...

Everything has to be checked out with the tongue first. Those cats do look funny. I don't think anybody would try to take that toy off Ruby. I hope Samson is out now.

Lucky pup. I think you (Noelle) should just keep the cat's head in the mug:) I'm not a fan of the felines, but it's so nice that you are.

Oh I am so glad they liked everything!! I love the really cute doggie treats - I wish they had them for cats too. For those who wondered the fleece ball is from Pet Supplies Plus - I know they all are independtly owned so I am not sure if they all carry them. I wasn't sure which would be good choices, so I tried to pick stuff that looked fun - the cats were very interested in the fleecy ball so I knew that would be a good choice at least - stuff they like are usually pretty popular with their doggie cousins.

And Ziggy is always very welcome to join - he is such a cutie that we would love to have him!
