Hi everyone! Smudge here to tell you about something super exciting!
Back in the summer, I entered this picture in Garth Riley’s First Ever Silly Photo Contest:
And guess what? I WON the grand prize! Holy cats, was I ever surprised and excited!
Well, I thought just winning was pretty terrific but then a couple of weeks ago, I got a box in the mail.
Mom helped me open it and just LOOK what was inside!
Can you believe all that great stuff? There’s treats and cat grass and a cool toy and my winning picture in a super fabulous picture frame that Garth Riley’s mom made with her very own paws!
Oh! And look at this! A note from Garth, a one-of-a-kind Grand Prize trophy ornament AND my very first ever pawsonalized SMUDGE Christmas tree ornament! I mean, could this GET any cooler?
Well, as a matter of fact, it CAN because Garth and his mom made a donation in my honor to the fire relief efforts here in Colorado! Are they the best or what?
But hang on to your furs because — if you can believe it — there was one thing in the package that topped everything else. It’s AMAZING! You ready to see it? Are you sure?
Okay, here it is! TAH-DAH!
That’s right! Garth Riley sent me tissue paper AND bubble wrap! Gosh…did he think of everything or WHAT?
Thank you so, so much, Garth Riley and Garth Riley’s Mom — for the super pawsome prize and for holding such a fun event. You’re both winners to me, too!
