Although this is a good cause I'm kind of worn out from contests. That Kitty Fight Club is getting to me! A Furminator would be neat though as I'm quite the floofball... : )

We have it in our sidebar! But we don't ever have problems with hairballs - except Mrs. OZ sometimes produces SUCH big ones - OMG - we wonder how she can even do it....
We eat lots of grass, and Luna helps herself to salad from the garden - we think that might do the trick....

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

yes, hope this helps a lot of kittens out.

The Island Cats said...

We're gonna post about the contest tomorrow! What a great way to raise $$$ for a good cause!

Hello Angel! We hope to win this tool real bad for our Hunny Bunny cuz she is so matted from winter. I want to come by and tell you how much it means to me that you care so much. When you come for a visit, my tiny heart smiles. I wish I could have more energy to return the visits, but I am still recovering, nicely I might add thanks to all the love and purrrrs.
