Black Magic Tickle Pickle Giveaway

Meows from Mudpie!

Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day! Did you know that at many black cat adoption events, torties are considered honorary black cats? So I'm proud to stand with the lovely house panther to help spread the message that black cats are pawsome!

When I arrived at my forever home last weekend, one of the first toys I gravitated towards were our Tipsy Nip Tickle Pickles. They are made locally here in Vermont and do so much for kitties in need.


Throughout the month of August, Tipsy Nip will donate 25% of all website retail sales (www.shoptipsynip.com) of their Black Magic Tickle Pickle to help raise awareness and funds for Black Cat Rescue (BCR). This newest Tickle Pickle is stuffed with a delicious blend of organic catnip and licorice root. Not only will it taste good to your cat, licorice root can be used to help kitties with allergies and digestive issues. Licorice root can also squash respiratory issues like colds because it soothes the mucus membranes.

You can place your order here.

Mommy bought me a Black Magic Tickle Pickle, and I asked her if we could buy a second one to offer as my very first giveaway...of course she said yes! (Who could say no to me???)

This giveaway is open to our readers worldwide so good luck everyone!

Woo-Hoo! Way to go! Good news, and great giveaway idea! I can't wait to try one of these for our kitties...(even though none of our current crew are black).

Tipsy Nip and their pickles are the BEST! Last year they had a pink pickle for Breast Cancer Awareness... we LOVE the black pickle! What a wonderful cause.

We haven't had a pure black kitty in our house, but we has had a tortie (Jezebel) and a black and white (Maurice).

I haven't seen these before but they sound like a fun toy! I have not ever had an all black cat that I can remember. But, Callie has a lot of black on her kind of like you do.

Carmine hid the orange pickle we won from you in his box bed! :)
I'm going to have to look at licorice for the kitties - Carmine and Milita would both benefit from it, it sounds like!

Marg said...

That sounds like great toy and healthy for the kitties too. We just have to try one of those. You all have a great day.

Marg said...

I entered the contest but I can't do twitter so guess we don't have a chance.

We've heard great things about tickle pickles but haven't ever had one of our own to try! We love how they support great causes.

Back in the 80s I lived with a tall, tough-looking black cat named Sasha, who was the sweetest, most loving cat I've ever known. I miss that good boy!

I've had a few black cats in my live time. The last one was the love of my life. She always had to be up against me. No matter how hot it was. I truly miss her forever. Those tickle pickles look like fun. I'll have to look into them for my crew here now.

Inky, my black cat, says this sounds like a fun toy if he can keep it away from his brother and sisters.

Pop has always loved black cats but never had one. TW doesn’t even remember any the 2 times she adopted from a adoption event. I do love Tickle Pickles though.

A number of years ago we found a beautiful black stay. We had our Anya at that time - she was the most beautiful white Angora and they got along great. However, my husband wouldn't allow us to keep him and I found a no-kill shelter just into Illinois to take him. (He was adopted into a great home so while I was sad we weren't able to keep him, I was glad he found a loving home.) Since we mostly adopt strays, we don't really "pick" the color of our cats. It's mostly whatever shows up in our yard - and if we can keep one, we make sure to search all possibilities to make sure the cat doesn't already have a home. My sister has a black cat - she's about 18 years old and doing great for her age.
