My Gotcha Day Revenge On Mom and a Kitty Kush Catnip Give-Away for YOU!!!

In full disclosure:This post is NOT sponsored monetarily by Kitty Kush Catnip, but they DID allow me to hold a give-away. Truth be told, only an obedient dog would compensate someone for a post in which a certain cat, (I wonder who THAT could be?)REFUSED to appear on video with a product they were featuring.

 If you were looking for a hearts and flowers kind of Gotcha Day post from my Mom, well, turn around and pussyfoot right outta here,  cause that is NOT gonna happen today. NO WAY!

Today is my 8th Gotcha Day and rather than read all of that sentimental gushing that Mom usually posts, it's time for ME to take over MY blog and tell you all the TRUTH!

Yeah, I am grateful to have a roof over my head, tons of beds, a really rocking cat tree that is the Rolls Royce of cat trees, (more on that in a few weeks), tons of tasty food and treats for my ample belleh and of course a woofie brother who loves me. I also have ONE PAWRENT  who loves, me, (that would be my DAD!!), the  other, namely my MOM, is a FRAUD!!!

Yes, you read that correctly, my Mom is a FRAUD!!

Want to know what she had the NERVE to do?

Remember last week when I blogged about my Vet trip? Well, Mom had scheduled (HAD being the operative word), an appointment to see "Dr.Smiley" and his Evil Assistant to get my rabies vaccine, for YESTERDAY....just ONE DAY BEFORE MY GOTCHA DAY!

I ask you kitties, who schedules a trip to the Vet for a vaccine or ANYTHING one day before a Gotcha Day? MY TRAITOR MOM, THAT'S WHO!

No worries, furiends, I showed HER!

You know what I did? 

Mom pulled THIS OUT:

Let me tell you, it took EVERY ounce of self-control for me NOT to go nuts over this catnip. Why didn't I?  Well, I have had it kitties! For six of my eight years I have endured countless intrusions by my Mom when I am trying to get some rest. All I hear is "Oh Cody!! Come here! You will LOVE this!" and then the clicking, prodding, and sweet-talking starts. Just to USE ME for product reviews! 

Sorry, Mom, but that Vet trip that ALMOST took place one day before my Gotcha Day was the game changer.

I don't care that the makers of Kitty Kush Catnip were:

I don't care that all you have to do is:

I don't care that Kitty Kush Catnip is:

Oh normally I would care about all that makes Kitty Kush Catnip catabulous,  but after Mom's little planned trip to the Vet that I TOTALLY ended up sabotaging, there was going to be not one whisker's worth of cooperation from me! NO WAY! You see, I REFUSED to look at the camera, I REFUSED to roll around in the midst of catnip bliss, tossing my ample belleh this way and that. I am  NO LONGER YOUR TRAINED SEAL MOM!! I'm a CAT! I have a MIND OF MY OWN and this is MY blog!! You are NOT the BOSS OF ME!!! (Well, at least til my next meal).

If you want to see super cute videos of cats that cooperated with their Moms (because they have NICE, LOVING MOMS who wouldn't dream of scheduling a trip to the Vet ONE DAY BEFORE THEIR GOTCHA DAYS) can click HERE and HERE!! But you are NOT going to see some cutesy, cutesy video from this guy! NO WAY!! I'm done! Finished! KAPUT!

Oh yes this scared my Mom! She quickly realized the error of her ways and postponed the soiree with Dr.Smiley til next week, but that was too little too late Mom. The damage was done!!!! You won't get ANY further cooperation from me for quite a while!

But...for the REST OF YOU my furiend at Kitty Kush Catnip felt really bad for me. So bad in fact, that he agreed to have a give-away!!!

YES!! He said that in honor of my EIGHTH GOTCHA DAY, EIGHT OF MY PALS could win their own Kitty Kush Catnip Grinder, (an approx. $11 value!) !!! (My apologies to my International readers, but this give-away is open to those residing in the U.S. and Canada only). 

Entering is super easy! Just enter on the Rafflecopter below!! Good luck!!!!

OCSD=Obsessive Cat Sticker Disorder

A few weeks ago my husband and I visited our Uncle at his home in a local Assisted Living facility and I nearly died laughing, when I saw this vehicle:

To those who live in Michigan, if this is your car, please don't tell me............LOL

If you don't talk to your family members about OCSD (Obsessive Cat Sticker Disorder), who will?
