Mermaid Lillithina and her pet cat fish Mergatroid would like to take time out from their fun game of "starfish keepaway" to announce the winners of the 365 Cat Ladies Fun and Games Giveaway for July.
Forty-six cats and/or cat ladies left comments about their favorite cat games and three were picked at random. Here are their entries:
Angus Mhor said: "Angus is a champ at Shanghai from the Shadows-he'll lie in wait, invisible, silent. Then, as you pass by his lair, he'll SPRING! Forepaws aloft, all 14 front toes spread for maximum contact, and GOTCHA! Right on the back of the legs. Then, sit down and listen to the squeals! Rewind and repeat!"
Kitty said: "3 of our cats - Harry, Allie and Murray love to play chase with the Sophie our dog. They run from one end of the house to the other and if Sophie stops, they all just leap over her. She's a Shih Tzu, so they're all about the same size."
And Sal's Girl said: "My black and white cat--Fast Edie--loves to play Sheet Sharks. She hides under the sheet and we pat her and she chases our hands or we hide our hands under the sheets and she chases them!"
Each has won a "Peaceable Kingdom matted print from my Etsy shop. Winners, please send me your address and let me know which one you would like-- with or without the caption. Congratulations to all!
