Hey everypawdy, are ya’ out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena looks around and out the door and back into the living room. She sees Dezi washing her face after eating a few bites of breakfast and meows…) Hey sissy, is our innernets back on? I’s don’t know who keeps cuttin’ what, but I’s ‘bout tired of them cuttin’ our innernets. I’s asked mommy ifin she had furgotten to pay the bill or somethin’ cuz this was the 3rd time this month we’ve been offline.
Me knows Raena. It’s really frustratin’ when ya’ have things to do and no way to do ‘em and no answers as to why. We do seem to be back online, but who knows fur how long. Mommy’s counselor said she was told that somepawdy had cut one of the fiber optic lines and cut the innernets fur all of Southern Oklahoma the last time and this time. Y, Even the stores couldn’t opurrate cuz they’re credit card machines weren’t workin’. Me can only ‘magine what it would’a been like had it been black Furiday or Cyber Monday. (Dezi shakes her head)
Meowin’ of shoppin’ days sissy, I’s thought we’d post our Holiday Gift Guide picks today.
Great idea Raena. We’ve chosen some pawsum items fur the whole family.
Yep, and we tried to make sure we picked somethin’ in every price point. Ya’ know, not everypawdy has a lot of green papers to spend. We must let ya’ know that this posty contains a few affiliate links. That means ifin ya’ buy somethin’ usin’ our linky, we’ll get a small percentage so we can buy us some treats or somethin’. Mine’s furst pick are these really cool food and drink bowls.
1. Vivipet Ceramic Q Bowl and the Big Head Water Bowl fur cats or the Pawsome D Bowls fur dogs: At $24.99, $26.99 and $34.99 for quality ceramic, they would make a great addition to any kitty or woofie’s meal time. And they come in 5 great colors.
Me thinks those are great Raena. Me’s been tryin’ to get mommy to get us a couple. Vivipet also has some great elevated feeders, cat grass containers, and toys. And me’s pick fur the cat luvvin’ humans:
2. Set of 2 Fat Cat Plates and/or the Angel Cat Mug’N Bowls: Cost: $24.99
All ceramic and beautiful colors to match your furry furiends dishes fur $24.99 each; make these a great choice fur our peeps.
Mine’s next pick is a bit on the high end, but worth every penny:
3. The Litter Robot III Open Air or Litter Robot 3 Connect: Cost: $449.00 or $499.00 Reward: No Scooping (Yay!!!)
Ifin you’re lookin’ fur a self cleaning litter box, this is our top pick. Easy set up, works with most clumping cat litters and any trash bags. No ongoing equipment or accessory expenses required. You can check out our review here.
Me’s next pick is one that almost all kitties luv:
4. The Yeowww Nip Banana: Cost: $4.95 Reward: Hours of fun fur kitty
At $4.95, even ifin you already have one, it’s great to have one in reserve. These nanners get lots of luvvin’ and need to be replaced occasionally. ‘Course, nanners aren’t all Ducky World (Yeowww) makes. Click the linky to check out other great Yeowww nip products. We even located them in the UK.
You are so right sissy. We should add that there’s no comparison, so don’t waste money on knock offs. Fur you kitties that don’t get any enjoyment from catnip, don’t worry, mine’s next pick is top of the line Silvervine:
5. Cloud Nine Silvervine powder: Cost: $11.99 Reward: Ecstatic Kitty
At $11.99 this little tin should be kept out of kitty’s reach, it’s like kitty gold. We also hear from our good furiend Purrseidon, that CatABliss has some pawsum nip and vine mixes you might wanna try.
Oh Raena, that’s a furtastic pick. Me luvs nip, but the vine…is soooooo fine. Ya’ know, we’ve listed some great kitty gifts, human picks and even somethin’ fur the woofies; but we haven’t yet given ya’ our pick fur the mini humans with sticky fingers. Me’s pick fur the young’uns:
6. Prancie’s Prayer: Cost: $2.99 – $12.95 Reward: A child’s smile
This pawsum little book will make a great gift fur boys and/or girls. Check out our review here.
I’s luvved readin’ Prancie’s book sissy. That’s a wonderful pick. (Raena leans in and whispers to Dezi) I’s was thinkin’ we could use our last 4 picks of this posty fur our priceless picks and then post the rest of our picks after Fanksgivin’. What do you think?
(Dezi nods and whispers back to Raena) Me agrees Raena, that sounds like another good plan.
Okay furiends, our last 4 picks today are priceless, but can be given to anyone by anyone. Furst up:
7. Love Notes: Cost: Free to cheap Reward: Priceless
You’ll need a few pieces of paper cut into 3X3 squares/hearts/circles or any shape you’d like, or post it notes. You’ll also need a small box with a removable lid (shoebox/costume jewelry box, etc.). On each piece of paper, write down something luvving, like, I’s luvs you, You’re special, You’re purrfect, I’s like you, You’re mine’s bestest furiend, etc.. Once you have your luvs notes written down, put them in the box and wrap it. The recipient can pull out a luvs note anytime they need a little pick me up.
8. Luv Cuddles with Purrs: Cost: Free Reward: Priceless: Less stress and happy humans and kitties
This is me’s next pick. Mommy can never get enuff Luv Cuddles. She says all humans crave this attention from their kitties. You woofies can give Luv Cuddles too, you just don’t have the Purr pawrt. Maybe, you could add a bit of drool. Woofie humans seem to like that.
You’re right sissy, mommy does luvs Luvs Cuddles with Purrs.
9. Everlasting Gift Notes: Cost: Free Reward: Priceless Elation
You’ll need the same supplies as those fur Luvs notes, but this time, you’ll write an action you can purrform fur your recipient. Like ifin you’re a man gifting to a woman, you might say somethin’ like, I’s’ll wash the dishes after dinner tonight. Or, Good fur 1 free massage. Actually, that’d be a good one no matter who the giver or receiver is. Ifin you’re a kitty givin’ to your woofie housemate, you could say, No whacky paws across your nose fur 1 whole day. Just ‘member to not go overboard. Don’t purromiss somethin’ you can’t deliver. MOL
Or ifin you’re recipient is another kitty Raena, you could meow that you won’t pester your big sisfur fur one whole week. Anyways, our last pick today is:
10. Together Time: Cost: Free Reward: Priceless
Just spending time together can wipe away all the bads of the day. Turn off all the tech and spend time listening to each other.
Another great pick sissy. I’s know we’ll be givin’ mommy every one of our last 4 picks and I’s sure she’ll be givin’ ‘em right back. Fanky fankfully, she believes that True Luvs is the greatest gift of all and no amount of money can buy it. Guess we better wrap this up…MOL get it, wrap this up? Anyways…let’s try to get some visitin’ in. We can’t be sure how long we’ll have innernet right now, so we need to take full advantage when we do.
Till the next time…………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Raena: Navy blue
Dezi: Vibrant Blue
Luvs and Hugs and Kitty Kisses
RaenaBelle and Deztinee
Meowllo everypawdy, we hope you’re havin’ a great week. Let me tell ya’ me doesn’t know what this world is comin’ too. Furst sissy Raena hijacks me’s bloggy and now mommy wants to. You know what? It’s okay. After all without mommy me wouldn’t have a bloggy to hijack, and we are all furmily after all. So me’s gonna turn it over to mommy now. She has some great purroducts to tell ya’ ‘bout. And stay tuned, vu we’s havin’ a give away at da end.
Thank you sweety. I won’t make a habit of taking over, and ya’ll did get to try out the new goodies, so you’ll still be a part of the post. Anyways, recently we were given the opportunity to try out a couple of new products from Collage.com’s new pet line. First let me explain a little about the products. We received a bowl and a pillow bed. They are completely customizable as you’ll see by the photos.
This is a sponsored post. We’ve been compensated for sharing. However, we always tell the truth; all opinions are our own. As always we only bring you products we use or have tried ourselves and think would be of interest to you our readers and friends.
When you go to the site and choose the item you want, you’re taken to a screen that allows you to add photos, writing, initials, designs and pretty much whatever your mind can think of. Now you all know I’m no techy. You don’t need to be. It’s a simple and really easy format to work with, and if you have any trouble there’s a number listed on every page for customer service help. You can preview your product and go back and change it all before you finalize it and save it for check out. And if you’re buying more than 1 item, the photos you upload are still available to choose for your next product, or you can choose all new ones.
Let’s take a look at the products themselves. First up the Cat Bowl. It’s a high quality plain white ceramic, fully finished large bowl. When I say fully finished, I mean that the bottom is glazed just like the inside, so no scratching your floors. Altho’ it says it’s dishwasher safe, because of the photos and finish, I would recommend hand washing. The bowl is 6 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches tall (deep). So it’s great for food or water. Collage.com’s recommendation is 1-40 photos for the bowl. But you will also have other options as well as changing the color by adding a background.
Now lets take a look at the Pillow Bed. As Dezi would say, OMC It’s amazing. First off at 40” X 30”, it’s huge. And it’s overstuffed and fluffy, with a plush fleece top and natural weave back. And the cover is removable for easy clean up. You can use anywhere from 1 to 200 photos in your design. And remember, you’ll have other options as well. We gave ours a space like background in Dezi’s signature bluish purple and added DezizWorld to the top. You can even choose the font and color of any writing as well as placement. You’re only limited by your creativity. And you all know this is the area where I’m lacking. But we think our pillow bed is great. Actually, I love it so much, I can’t bring myself to throw it on the floor for the girls to use. lol So, at the moment it rests at the foot of the bed where the girls wrestle with it and lay on it while I fold clothes and do other chores in the bedroom. As a testament to it’s softness, Raena kneads and suckles it. And if I’m being honest, my guess is, that Dezi does too. (shakes head) My spoiled little angels.
Dezi: Mommy, you’re not supposed to tell all me’s secrets. Oh well, can me tell ‘bout da give away now?
Yes Dezi, you can tell about the give away now.
Thanks mommy. Let me tell ya’ dat pillow bed is pawsum and so is da bowl. Raena luvs her bowl, and she knows those are fotos of her on it too. Anyways, da pawsum peeps over at Collage.com are lettin’ us give away one of those amazin’ Customizable Ceramic Pet Bowls. Dat’s right, one lucky U.S. reader will get to customize their very own cat or dog bowl dat will then be shipped to your door. Ya’ might wanna check out all da other pawsum customizable purroducts they have while you’re there.
