Tipp's Tipp (are you listening Momma?)

Tipp here.

So the Momma provided me with the inspiration for the Tipp of the day.  So she was going to finish up the prize for our giveaway, the ManCat Sleeping Mat, last night. Was.  Gonna. See where these words are going ? Or didn't go?  Welllllll.... seems like the Momma thought she had enough of the squishy stuff that she puts inside these luscious sleeping mats to make them soft and snuggly, but uh-oh...... let's just say, when she got there, the cupboard was bare.  Sigh... really momma?

So we can show you handsome colors of the covers... the grey's and blues of Business Cat's office attire on one side, and for weekends, a softer, more natural look.  1 blanket, 2 moods, who'da thunk it ?  All the woolsey parts come from old clothes (no worries, we wash 'em) from the thrift store sewn like something called a kwilt.  the Momma calls it "upcycled" which I guess means that if this woolsey stuff thought that it was important as somebody's suit coat, it is even MORE important as a bed, for you to lay on!  Anyway, trust me, it will look much better when the squishy stuff is in, you'll see, but you get the idea of it.

So my Tipp for today?  Like those nice boys in uniforms say, "Be Prepared".  You know, like really Momma, how can you finish a ManCat Mat without the filling?  It's like not running a check on doeppler radar, windspeed, temperature and barometric pressure before deciding you want to go outside without an umberella, or in a cat's case, go out at all.  It's like not purrforming a 100 point NASA designed safety checklist before going anywhere in the C-A-R, even though it only ever seems to go to the V-E-T I'm sure that it's a death trap and without these checks would be highly unlikely to ever return me home in one piece.  You get the idea.... Be Prepared, be prepared, be prepared.... besides if you're prepared, you're less likely to get a sneak attack from a kitten, a sloppy lick from a dog, or worse yet... an empty food cupboard. (Make sure your humans are reading this as well.)

Anyway, don't worry, I am in charge of getting the Momma back on track, and Thursday we will give away the delectable ManCat Mat!  

See ya!
