The Santa Kitty Toy Hop: Here Comes Santa Claws


It's the most wonderful time of the year ... for bringing a little extra joy to shelter kitties.  That's why we're participating in the Santa Kitty Toy Hop organized by Summer and her human at Sparkle The Designer Cat. Cat bloggers around the world are taking this opportunity to donate to their local shelters, and sharing about their experiences doing so.

We elves put together a package of toys, catnip, games, scratchers, tunnels, snacks and food for the cats at Pet Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), the shelter at which we volunteer every weekend.  We had a great time delivering the goodies yesterday.  Here are some pictures of the fun...

Sweet Holly waiting patiently to open her gift
Noname: What's in the bag?
Pumpkin with her new mousey toy
The Room 5 Gang, checking out the goodies
Exploring the new crinkle tunnel
Room 7 Cats: "Holy Cat! Is all this for us?"
Playing the Cat Amazing game (looking for snacks)!
"Toys, tunnels, scratchers, snacks, catnip ... we must have been GOOD this year!"
Oh what fun it was to watch the shelter kitties enjoying their new stuff.  Maybe, just maybe, we made life a little brighter for the PAWS cats while they're waiting for their forever homes.  Happy holidays, everyone! :)

The cats looked pretty tired Sunday morning I was there for the cleaning shift. They must have partied very hard Saturday night. Sweet to see so many of them stimulated and playful.

That's a lot of pressies. I'm glad the shelter cats had a blast playing with their new toys.

Sasha said...

The shelter cats are already living a good life, we can see. We hope the presents will bring them new stimulation and joy. Personally, my favourite thing is the tunnel. I hate having it packed up for any reason. My tunnel is about five foot long.

We didn't get our post on the linky list before it closed. Phooey! What great gifts you took to the PAWS kitties. Looks as if they really loved them. Mom finally got a package in the mail today for Swizzle with a few gifts. She should get it the day after Christmas. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
