Today’s Page-a-Day Cat Calendar star is a Jewish Aby named Isis.
“Seven-year-old Isis is a friend to all. The beautiful blue Abyssinian loves all holidays, says Lucinda Korman of Sharon, Ontario, because that’s when guests come to her house. As the family goodwill ambassador, Isis gives ‘kisses’ by rubbing her face on visitors to make them feel welcome.”
Happy Hanukkah, Isis!
And, as promised…we have a calendar winner!
I devised a box to randomly select the winner. I had nine names, so I put 9 different bowls into an empty box, one for each name. The names were printed on bits of paper, and those were put into the bowls at random, too.
Then, I used the secret ingredient: Kitty Crack!
Okay, so it’s real name is “freeze-dried chicken,” but everyone I know calls it Kitty Crack, because it really is.
One little piece of Kitty Crack went into each bowl.
And then Jacoby was let loose on the box. Whichever name was in the bowl he ate out of first would be the winner.
A very big responsibility! And the winner is…
Phoebe! Congratulations, Phoebe – please email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send your calendar out as soon as I can.
In case you’re wondering, yes, Jake got to eat all the chicken. I was kind of interested that he went for all the red bowls first. I’ve always heard that cats see blues and greens better than reds, so I kind of thought he’d go for a blue or green bowl. I didn’t look at which names went into which bowls, but I did think it was intriguing that he went for the red bowl first. He actually stepped over other bowls to take the chicken out of it, too.
(it’s a contest…and a science experiment!)
However, if you did not win the calendar, don’t despair! Email me your address, and I’ll send you Jake’s special holiday Toki Poki card!
Thank you to everyone who commented!
