Mancat Monday – I won!

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!

Mom, is all this really for ME?

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!

    Absolutely pawesome, Smudge!!! We just loved your entry – it was great. Garth sure know how to pick the good prizes too. Bet you had lots of fun with that tissue paper and bubble wrap – pop, pop, pop!!!

  7. I’m so glad you liked it Smudge! Mom says you can put a different picture in the frame if you want — when she printed out the prize picture, part of it got cut off. I know purple isn’t a very manly color, but we picked our favorite frame for the grand prize.

    Mom was very happy the frame got to you in one piece. She was worried about shipping it so I told her to put lots of tissue paper and bubble wrap in the package for you to play with!

    Concatulations! I can’t wait to next year’s contest.

    Your pal,

    P.S. – because each frame is different and each is a work of art, mom signed the frames on the back – so when mom & I are rich and famous, it will be worth millions!

  8. What an incrediable package (and well deserved I might add). Tissue paper AND bubble wrap?!!! You are one lucky cat.
