Purrfectplay...And A Give-A-Way!

Just as Parental Unit and I were getting ready to leave the recent BlogPaws conference, we stopped at a beautiful display of pet products and toys called "Purrfectplay", owned by a lovely woman named Pam Wheelock. I ran after one of the balls right then and there!
See the picture of her display at BlogPaws below:

Pam immediately offered to give the ball to me as a gift, and generously asked Parental Unit if she had any other pets. So our cat Bella got a present, too - a wool covered organic catnip toy!

See the toys (before we got to them) below:

L-R:  Organic wool, covering organic catnip, cat toy (Parental Unit has dubbed it the "Catnip Carrot"), and organic wool-covered ball. The ball is washable and comes with its own organic cotton sock for easy transportation and or machine washing!

As you all know, there are plenty of balls and catnip toys out there for our furry friends, but what makes these toys different is how they're made and what they're made with.
According to purrfectplay.com, the company is "dedicated to sustainable, fair trade principles, ... use only organic, dye free and reclaimed materials",  and all of the toys are handcrafted in the good ol'e USA. They even donate 5% of their total sales (which is more generous than a percentage of profits), to "no kill" and rescue organizations - and their website tells you exactly which organizations receive your hard earned money.

A note from Parental Unit: These toys appear to be extremely well-crafted and sturdy! And they feel great too!

So here's a few pictures of Bella and me playing with our new toys:

Bella looks a bit tentative here, but she literally chewed through the paper bag to get to it!

Good thing it's too big for me to swallow! That's why they come in different sizes!

Oops! Here I am gnawing on the catnip toy! Just "payback time" because earlier today, Bella was playing with my ball. (Parental Unit was not sufficiently caffeinated to get a picture).

I urge you to check out Pam's excellent website at purrfectplay.com. She also has a newsletter ( sign-up-it's free!), and a blog at: purrfectplay.typepad.com/ . She has a link on the blog titled, "Articles" where you can read lots of eye-opening information about toxic chemicals, fabric dyes, plastics, and the importance of using organic materials for making pet toys, bedding, and even collars and leashes. This stuff is important to Parental Unit and me - that's why we both gravitated to her display and are now reviewing her products. But, if you're not familiar with the reasoning behind ideas like, "sustainability", "fair trade" and "organic", Pam's articles are well written and extremely informative. According to Parental Unit, these aren't just "buzz words". These ideas, when put into practice, really mean something to our everyday lives and the health of the planet we all share.
By the way, this isn't important to me, but Purrfectplay sells some nifty gifts for humans too :-)

So the moment you've all been waiting for! The free products that you can win! Here's how:

The first two "Official Followers" of my blog who comment on this post will win one of the two toys pictured: either the wool-covered ball or the catnip cat toy. Let me know which one you prefer. I will notify the winners by a post on my blog, so check back frequently. The winners may then contact the owner of Purrfectplay, Pam Wheelock, by e-mail at info@purrfectplay.com.
