Two Cats Tuesday: It's the Great Toy Mountain!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today Pimp and Moo are doing a very important job... Quality control for the Santa Paws Drive toys!

We got a huge shipment in and I was inventorying everything to make sure it was there -- and having the hardest time telling Pimp and Moo these toys aren't theirs! We have plenty of toys (way more than two boys need, actually) and these are for the Santa Paws Drive shelters!

By the way, these aren't even all the toys. There were a TON of cat toys that didn't make it in the picture that I have here -- and we're still taking donations! Don't forget we have six shelters full of doggies and kitties that we're splitting this between. So the more the merrier!

There were four huge boxes like this stuffed with toys! This is what happened right when I opened them... Pimp waltzed right over, hopped on and sat like he was making claim!

And then I had to tell him they weren't his. He is not a needy kitty, our Santa Paws Drive shelter kitties are! But that didn't stop him from trying to make off with a catnip felt cube...

Then it was Moo's turn to inspect. Have you ever seen so many plush doggie bones?! Moo hasn't either. In fact, I don't think he's ever seen a doggie bone of any kind...

He was better about not trying to steal any. He just kind of sniffed around and gave his paw of approval.

So I started counting, and as I was taking everything out of the boxes and piling up what I'd counted, this is what I ended up with:

I'm king of the toy mountain!

Have you ever seen so many toys in one place? It was so awesome! The picture does it no justice. THANK YOU to everyone who has donated already!

If you haven't, please help us add to the pile! The Santa Paws Drive shelters have a total of 554 cats and 95 dogs at last count, so this pile has to go a long way! You can donate toys and treats through tomorrow, and donate cash or buy raffle tickets until December 20.

(If you haven't checked out the raffle yet, you should! We have over $1,000 of amazingly fabulous pet products you could win. Tickets are only $1 and all proceeds go to the shelters as cash donations!)

Let's make the mountain of toys even bigger and send these special animals the best holiday ever!


  1. That is so awesome! Yeah for quality control by Pimp and Moo. :-3

  2. Holy cow! Your efforts are really showing a lot of success!
    These photos are funny.

  3. awww can't they each pick ONE at least? come on ma! we dont' mind! 

  4. Awww, what cute kitsies!!! They are awdorable, even if they're trying to lay claim to kitty toys and ... doggie bones?!? :-D

  5. Awesome love this idea I donated lots of stuff last year to the shelter for xmas but not this big wowowow. I'm donating some money as soon as I get paid this weekend. Merry Christmas!

  6. It seems so cruel to have that many toys and not let Pimp and Moo have one each! Taking two away can't really hurt, can it?


  7. How awesome to see all those toys to help pets in need have a happier holiday!

  8. WOW! You are incredible for coordinating this each year!  

  9. What a great Christmas present! I'm sure all of the animals at the shelters will greatly appreciate everything =) And Pimp and Moo are too cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!

  10. That is so awesome all those toys are going to shelters. That is just the best thing that you do Dorian. What a pile of toys. Thanks for getting all this together. It is terrific. Take care.

  11. Wonderful....I hope every fur purson gets a toy at the shelter.  And significantly in the background, the tree is still standing and not demolished, as I guessed!


You know what would be really cute? If you left a comment... :)
