    Wow!!! I never win anything… Thank you so much 🙂 And thank you sewexhausted for the congrats too!!! The suspense was also killing me. I have a kitty that I will have to do that with when I do a giveaway. I wonder if she will cooperate,,, hmmm… Again, than you so very much. I love how you had your kitty help you. I bet you had to be very very very patient while she decided what he wanted to do.

    Kitty enjoys pouncing on things. This is like a dream job for him. Now for the next draw, if you could figure out how to make the cards move…

      Yes, Kitty is a Master Pouncer. He’s also light on his paws. And, if we make the cards move next time, it would incite him to pounce faster, thus cutting down the looooong draw time. However, this would also cut down on the nail biting suspense! 🙂

    Brilliant execution Kitty. I’m certainly glad you took your time, that made the photo’s and commentary more fun. You’re a riot Catja, you’re so darn creative. Hey, liking the Peace sign Fuchsia T too. I’m totally Pinning the last photo, too cute.

      Heh heh, thanks Kelly! This post still makes me laugh! Kitty was so delicately stepping around those cards, honestly it’s a good thing I didn’t videotape it because the tape would have run for 2 hours!! For all the things he’s knocked over and broken, he certainly had his royal daintiness on for this draw selection! I really think I may frame that last photo, his expression!!
