Voting for Friskies Video Contest Semi-Finalists Now On

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Friskies-2013-video-award-smFriskies, about The Friskies “Best Cat Video of 2013” contest.

You may recall that a month ago I posted in Mews Nooz and here about The Friskies search for cat videos made by people and kitties like you and me.

Well, Christine tells me “Friskies and the contest judges have selected 20 Semi-Finalists to compete for a spot as one of 12 Finalists.” I’ll be posting more information here at Kittens ‘n Things as I get it, or repeat some of this here and in Mews Nooz.)

Voting is now open through noon ET, September 16, 2013, so get your voting paw or fingers ready, your favorite treats (cat munchies or pop corn), find a soft spot to relax and watch those videos. Then choose your favorites!

$25,000 is on the line here! “Four Category winners and one Fan Favorite winner will be awarded the money. AND a gold-plated Catuette trophy.”

So let’s help make it happen!

Yours in watching cat videos and voting our favorites,

and “The Boys”

P.S. We’re pretty certain you’re going to be pretty busy watching those videos from now until September 15. However, we also think you might want a “7th-inning stretch” to get the kinks out! So, here’s a bit of fun where you can direct your attention–it’s the FroliCat DART Laser Pet Toy

Water, Water, Everywhere

P.S. Sometimes, just sometimes, kitties like to play on land with things like this CrackleChute Tunnel Cat Toy

Kitties, run don’t walk to Friskies

Kitties, listen up…


Last week, Wednesday, the 10th, to be exact, I wrote about the “end days” of the Friskies “create a video” contest.

Today is the “end date”–so if you’re making a video you’d better get a move on.

And let us know, as “The Boys” and I are eager to see you in the movies!

Yours in hurrying to make a video for Friskies,

P.S. Here’s a really neat Dog Gone Round Smart Cat Bed your kitty might enjoy. Our Bowie sure loved to hunker down inside.

If At First You Don’t Succeed

Clearly, Plan A didn’t work…


Yours in trying another tact,

and “The Boys”

P.S. If kitty had a distraction like Da Bird Cat Toy, we bet something like this wouldn’t happen.

What Will Kitty Do?

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

friskies-will-kitty-playWe were contacted about a “new web series” created by Friskies called “Will Kitty Play With It?”

The first video in the game series is now live at YouTube where you’ll meet “Digger + Spork.

According to the Friskies ad campaign information, the gist of the web video series is that “Each episode of the game show focuses on one specific item, hidden under a cardboard box, to be revealed to a curious cat. Once the box has been lifted, suspense builds as the item is revealed and described in detail before the big question, and moment of truth: “Will Kitty Play With It?”

You’ll also find this video (and other subsequent creations) posted at FacebookFriskies and TwitterFriskies.

And if you’re so inclined to create your own videos with your favorite feline, Friskies encourages you to do so and to upload them to Friskies. Just tag your videos and comments with #willkittyplay and upload to Twitter @Friskies, or Friskies Facebook.

Yours in wondering if kitty will play,

and “The Boys”

P.S. While your kitty is enjoyng the cat in the video, don’t forget the treats. How about some Friskies Gravy Sensation Sea food

Too Much Time on His Paws!

Yours in finding your kitty in action,
and “The Boys”

P.S. Bet this video reminds you of something in your kitty’s formative years!

Do I Look Like A Doomat?

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

He’s walking all over me! Mikey that is!

It seems like Mikey can’t be a timid little soul or a kitty who is a gentlemanly one at that.

No–he has to “walk around” and, all over, on my lap.

Actually, he does it because Billy is already on my lap and Mikey “wants in” Billy’s space. So Mikey will “barge right in where Billy is seated and then he will sit facing the monitor and watch the cursor.

By this time, of course, Billy has moved on.

I do realize, of course, that having Mikey walk all over me is better than having him trying to walk on the spare keyboard. Or better than having him stand on the table, reaching up and trying to jump to the top of the flat screen computer monitor!

Ummm, we had a discussion after that move!

Yours in reveling in the lap sitters,
and “The Boys”

P.S. On the other hand, Mikey may be needing a “timeout”. Perhaps something in the “Romper Room” will distract him.

(Note: Don’t let the “sad face” fool you. He can be very, very naughty!

The Pile On

Monday, July 16th, 2012

For the last month or so, Jonny has been sleeping in the dining room at night, all night, while Billy and Mikey join me upstairs. Mikey will sleep in his bed in the hallway outside the bedroom. And sometimes Billy will sleep in his house also upstairs, in the hallway.

Although, Billy will then creep up onto the bed and take over my pillow…once he thinks I’m asleep!

One recent night, though, things changed for some reason and I awoke during the night to having Jonny trying to get under the covers with me.

And Billy was eying him to see if he/Jonny was going to plop onto my pillow…in his place. ‘Cause more often than not, Billy will also sneak onto the bed and up on my pillow, once he thinks I’m asleep.

Not to be outdone, Mikey finally piled on, too…by that time it was time for me to get up. Actually, it wasn’t quite time (by my standards) to get up…they just decided for me.

And Mikey wasn’t quiet about it either…in fact, he was a bit relentless in jumping onto the bed, climbing all over me, and “telling me” his “clock” says it’s time for me to get up so he can eat!

Yours in crazy pile ons,
and “The Boys”

P.S. Seems like now is a good time for me to take a trip to Amazon to see what new toys of distraction I can pick up for them.
