Ernie Wins a Contest

And the winner is . . .

That's right! Our little Ernie Boo won a prettiest kitty contest! I had actually forgotten that he'd entered. I had purchased some catnip toys from Kittybags on Etsy when we first got Ernie and Bert. The owner, Dave, says in his shop announcement that he loves to receive photos of kitties playing with his cat toys. So I sent in the above picture of Ernie, and also one of Bert playing with a catnip ball. Dave was kind enough to ask if I wanted the pictures entered in his monthly Pretty Kitty Contest at Catnipetc, so of course I said ok! Today I got an email newsletter and there was Ernie's picture on it as the March winner! How cool is that? I just hope it doesn't go to his head. Thanks, Dave! And everyone who voted for him - thank you!

I have to say, Ernie and Bert LOVE their catnip toys from Kittybags. We got them a couple Organic Catnip Mice and a few Catnip Balls. The order even came with some organic catnip, which all three of our kitties love to roll around in.

Every cat toy at Kittybags is handmade in the USA with love and catnip ~ what more could a kitty want?

Ernie and Bert are always scrambling around with one of these catnip balls.


  1. Congratulations to Ernie and Lauren!!! Our staff loved the photo and so did the 38,666 customers that cast their votes for Ernie during the March Pretty Kitty Contest.

    I hope that your readers will follow the April Pretty Kitty Contest and will enter their Kitties too.

    99% of our cat toys are handmade in North America and we are very proud of the quality.

    Purrrs to All,
