#TipsyNip Holiday Gherkins

A few weeks ago while scrolling through my Facebook feed I stumbled upon this ad:

I'd been wanting to get a Tickle Pickle for Truffles (they are made right here in Vermont!) and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get her one since sales were to benefit our local shelter. I also needed one more thing for our Secret Paws package, so that weekend I went shopping and purchased two special edition Tickle Gherkins.

My first indication of how pawesome these pickles are came from Cody (of Cat Chat) when he opened his Secret Paws gift from us. Then on Christmas morning Truffles got hers. (It was the only gift I gave her since she still had her own Secret Paws package to open...more on that Monday!)

She absolutely loved her pickle, as you can see from the photos below, and as an added bonus over $500 was raised for the Humane Society of Chittenden County. According to Tipsy Nip's Facebook page, when they dropped off the check they also brought some Tickle Pickles for the resident shelter cats.

Sounds like they made many kitties very, very happy this Christmas.

Don't you just love the thumb nail action???

  10. The gifts which benefit others are always the "bestest" ;-)
    P.S. I got married in Vermont (my husband grew up there), it's such a gorgeous state!

  11. I admore my Tickle Pickle. I have the full size one. Pop says it’s time to marinate it cos I’ve been ignoring it. Tomorrow the peeps go to the folks so I’ll be left all alone. Last year I toppled the coat tree, what evil can I do this year? Pawty at my place, Truffles. Feel free to bring the pickle.

  12. We have heard about Tickle Pickles but have never had one. Maybe we will need to put that on our Christmas List for next year. Sure seems as if Truffles is loving hers. Hope you will join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
