Thankful Thursday (And Auction News!)

My kitties are always thankful to be Guinea Pigs! They get to test out all the prototypes of toys I make! Here's a look at the first Fancy Fishy Kicky I made. I didn't like the eyes, not bulgy enough like fancy goldfish eyes.. But my kitties don't seem to mind, they kick this thing to death all the time and it comes back for more!

Cashmere: Do you really think I'm going to continue to kick and basically beat the heck out of this thing now that you have the camera out? Silly human..

Yeah, but look at that sly smile!
She went nuts with it again later. Still had a hard time getting any action shots!

Cashmere: What's that? Play? No I wasn't.. I was just sitting here, minding my own business.. resting my head on this wonderfully nip scented thingie.. You know I'm not going to move again until that flashy box is closed and put away, right?
 When it was Glitters turn to kick the fishy kicky, I couldn't get a decent shot of her. Heck, I had a hard time getting a shot where her head was in frame! She was biting it when Leo walked by, she turned to make sure he wasn't after HER toy just as I took the shot.. sigh..

Glitter: MINE! That's right.. keep walking..
Leo: Yeah, ok. You'll be napping soon and then I will take it under the bed where no camera can see while I beat that thing up, down, and all around!
Glitter: I can live with that.

Would you like to know what I'm thankful for? First of all for the WONDERFUL response to the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions!! Nearly every item I posted on day one had bids, on day one!
I've added several more items and I'm still making some! But I have news!

Something else I'm very very thankful for! I have an end date for the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions! You see, there was a reason I made it a Quick Auction, rather than the 7 days I usually give. I've been waiting (and waiting and waiting and waiting) to get a surgery date and I wanted to be able to close the auction in a timely manner so that I wouldn't have anything left to do when I finally (FINALLY) got that surgery.
And that's what I'm thankful for! I have a date! I'll be going in on September 22, and I'll have pre-op stuff on the 12th. So.. I'm ending the Auction on the 10th! Because my surgery is hours away from home, even the pre-op will take a whole day. I'll have the ten days between to make sure every item is claimed and paid and sent out and hopefully nothing to worry about by the 22nd except.. (hahahaha! did I say nothing to worry about? Me?? A born worrywart? How silly, but at least the end of the auction will get me something else to focus on, right? Oh I hope so...)

So there we are! I'm thankful! The kitties are thankful! And Winnie's Wish and Chrystal are thankful!


There is still time! Don't forget to stop by the Winnie's Wish Quick Auctions! Yes, the whole thing shuts down on the 10th of September, but up until then, there's still the three day bidding as each item gets it's first bid!

Tuesday night I added a whole bunch of new items, I'm hoping to sell out! :) Wouldn't that be wonderful for Winnie's Wish??!! Remember, every bid helps the kitties of Winnie's Wish!

also, there are some adorable kittens there who want a home very badly! Won't you share and help them? There are also some adult cats looking for their special forever home! Share and help, please!
All of the adoptable kitties are on the sidebar of the Daily Dose blog, click on one, and share their post on whatever social media you use! Tell your friends! Please?

Donations and Wish List items are always needed and appreciated, look for the Wish List also on their sidebar and a donate button!
