We’re celebrating Cat Love Month and sharing the love by offering a special giveaway of two gift packs. There will be two winners of cat products made with love for cat lovers by cat lovers.
As much as I love doing giveaways for large brands, there is something so heartfelt and personal about cat lovers who make cat products. Our giveaway participants are all women who live in the U.S. (from coast to coast) who adore cats. I hope you share the love and support them by visiting their Etsy shops or websites.They are a joy to deal with and to show my love, I’m conducting this giveaway for free.

Jessie says, “I wish I could say I was the brains behind Primal Pet toys but, I must give credit where credit is due, it was Sabrina the cat. She is a black-super-slinky-former-barn-cat and always likes to get into things, especially in my leather workshop. I will let her tell the story: “Hi, I am Sabrina Kitty. I have this really awesome game of going into my humans workshop and getting fun things to play with and bringing them upstairs to share. Weeeee fun! One day the silly human left open a bin of buffalo leather scraps and I had a blast flinging all things buffalo out onto the floor and then sharing with my 7 Primal Kitty friends upstairs. What a mess…….it was great! Then the real fun began when the human saw a piece of fur on the floor and squealed like a little school girl thinking the scrap was a mouse. OMG, we all had a great laugh! Even better, it got her to thinkin’ (a rarity in my opinion) and she got this cool idea to make a Primal Kitty Mouse. It looks so much like a mouse that even I squealed….ummm……with pleasure, of course!! So, I, errrr…..we, invented the Wooly Mouse made with genuine American Buffalo (aka bison) leather.”
Our Valentine giveaway is on for one week and the two winners will be selected randomly and announced on Feb. 9, 2015. Please note: since the individual vendors ship separately, the items may arrive at different times. This giveaway is open only to U.S. residents. Good luck!
