It's been a long process to the drawing of winners here today. I seemed to make a lot of erroneous assumptions. I thought I knew cats - I thought I knew my cats....... They had a few lessons to teach me today.
First I printed out all the comments & decided to cunningly wrap kitty treats up in the paper. I then planned to throw them randomly on the mat & as the boys chowed down, the winners would be picked in order of munching......
1st Mistake - it was 36 degrees today & like a couple of wharfies with union representation, the boys refused to work in the heat of the day. Little Brunnie stayed napping on the TV table & refused to get down and Hun-bun napped in the fernery.
So we waited awhile until things cooled down a bit & little fluffy tummies would be wanting their dinner.... How about a bowl filled with paper & cheesey treats boys????
2nd Mistake - all cats love playing with paper or so I thought. I randomly sprinkled them about on the rug in front of the boys bowls waiting for them to investigate.
Brunnie walked straight past & went to his biscuit bowl - Í'm too old muma, I play on the inside now'.
Who could have guessed, Hun-bun is scared of balls of paper with treats inside. When I sprinkled them near him, all 7kgs of him leaped in the air & he went running to the front door crying. When I followed him, he cowered at the door from me. I carried him back to the papers & put him down & he ran & hid under the table, peeking at me through the lace tablecloth.
After two more tries I had to admit, Kitty Pickers they are not so it is back to our little digital friend at Random.org. Drum roll please, so the winners are....

It's only 15 days to my blogiversary so we shall see if I am up to another giveaway by then. I'm feeling somewhat scarred by the boys lack of participation. Obviously my boys are a lazy lot!
