Today’s Contest: So Long, and Thanks for All The Prizes

Congratulations to yesterday’s winner of Pony Paradise: Gina B.

And finally, no National Pet Week would be complete without a salute to everyone’s favorite pet, the dolphin (what, doesn’t everybody have a 950,000-gallon swimming pool?).  Well, if you can’t have the real thing, you could win the next best thing, Dolphin Discovery, if you can correctly answer these four trivia questions.

  1. What movie thriller features assassins code-named “Alpha” and “Beta”?
  2. What brothers formed the core of the musical group Split Enz?
  3. What game commonly includes kickers, bumpers, plungers, and flippers?
  4. The calf pictured below is a wholphin — a rare hybrid of a bottlenose dolphin and what other animal?

Today’s Contest: Ode to a Fat Cat

Congratulations to yesterday’s winner of Puppy Playtime: Leslie D.

In this contest, we’ll give you a chance, here
At a game prized by each kitten fancier
So a limerick compose
That’s inspired by the pose
Of this fiscally-fit feline financier.

May I interest you in a subprime mortgage?

  • Rule six: There is no rule six.
  • Rule seven: Winners will be selected by NTMTOM, using a top-secret method involving a Ouija board, sixteen left-handed hamsters, and a Zamboni (see, I told you).

Caturday Craftin’

Sender-Inner Maria Ruth writes: "I am an avid collector (and embroiderer) of vintage embroidery patterns, and when I came across this one (it originally said "Sunday") I thought, "Oh, no, that looks like Caturday to me!"

…To use it, one would print off the Caturday_transfer.jpg, trace over it with a special embroidery transfer pencil (available from any craft store) and iron it onto a piece of cloth. I just made the "flipped" image so you can see what it looks like once it’s ironed on.

Happy Caturday crafting!

Maria Ruth"
