Our Nightmare Before Christmas, Part 2

Meows from Mudpie!

A couple weeks ago we posted about how we went through our own Nightmare Before Christmas this month thanks to our house falling apart piece by piece. (For those keeping track, the cable box, toaster oven, and kitchen counter lighting have all been replaced. The gas furnace gets installed in the new year.)

At around the same time our sweet friend Valentine at the Noir Kitty Mews blog ran a Nightmare Before Christmas giveaway with an amazing assortment of prizes to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the classic movie. Mommy still remembers seeing it for the first time in the theater back in 1993 and it's one of her all-time favorites. We were beyond excited to learn that we WON the giveaway, and our prizes arrived last week! 


We got a special 25th anniversary edition of the book, a Jack Skellington & Sally catnip kicker toy from FreddysCatToyz, a Santa Hat Crinkle Cat Sack, Jack & Zero crocheted by Miss Ellen at 15 and Meowing, a Candy Cane Party Collar from Pampered Whiskers, and a plush Scary Teddy. Absolutely pawsome prize package, right???

Obviously all the toys have been a huge hit with me, and I've never had a kitty sack before and haven't gotten inside it yet, but I love lounging on top! It's super soft and cozy. My own purrsonal red carpet! (My nails need some work, don't you think?)



Who thinks I wore the candy cane collar? It's cute and festive, but I don't wear clothes, so we're using it to decorate my Kat Kabin and it's fun to play with too!




Thank you SO much for the amazing giveaway, Valentine! This Nightmare Before Christmas couldn't have been any better!

Congratulations on the giveaway, Mudpie! I bet the collar would look cute on you - too bad your human can't do some Photoshop magic and make it happen! But my human has looked at it, and says doing a Photoshop photo would be difficult.

Oh my goodness, these prizes are absolutely purrfect! I am also a huge fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas, and I watch the movie multiple times during both the Halloween and Christmas seasons. It's the two best holidays mashed into one! Mudpie, the kitties here wouldn't wear that collar either, but it sure makes your Kat Kabin look purrfectly festive! Merry Christmas season!

I sure had fun selecting the items for the giveaway and I'm pleased that they have brought you some joy. I know that collar would look super cute on you, but I know not all kitties like to wear things around their necks. I myself only wear collars around my neck for a brief amount of time, so they don't pull my long furrs. Those pom poms make good targets for batting at with the paw, though huh?! Tee hee hee. Hugs and kisses. -Valentine (& Kerry) of Noir Kitty Mews
