Dahlia here. I know you’re all as disappointed as I am that Mama hasn’t had the time to help me write an installment of my amazingly incredible memoir. But I hope this will compensate for some of your despair.
We here at Paws and Effect HQ have been given a huge, amazing honor, and because I’m the most important cat in the world, Thomas and Siouxsie have nominated me to tell you all about it. (Hush, Thomas! I did not steal the keyboard from you!)
You probably know the Acatemy — er, Academy — Awards are coming this weekend, but what you may not have known is that there are a whole bunch of pre-parties for the stars that attend, and at those parties they get lots of goodies. Thanks to our friend Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger, our awesome Paws and Effect “Purr More, Hiss Less” bumper sticker will be included in a goodie bag (with more than $242 worth of products and coupons) that she put together for the VIPs who attend the Secret Room Events Backstage Luxury Lounge tomorrow night.
Gracey’s mama, Joanne, will be at the event — and she and cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy from My Cat From Hell will be handing out the swag bags to the animal-loving celebs in attendance … and to mere mortals like our mama, too!
How can you get in on the action?
If you’re on Twitter, join the #RedCarpetCat live Twitter party on Wednesday, Feb. 22, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Pacific (8:30 to 10 p.m. Eastern), and you could win some of the more than $2,500 worth of goodies.
But if you can’t get to the party — even Mama probably won’t be there too long; she says 10 p.m. is past her bedtime on weeknights — all is not lost, because a Paws and Effect reader will also have a chance to win a Tiniest Tiger Hipster Bag filled with the same goodies going to the stars (check out some of the participating bloggers and swag donors here). You won’t just get an awesomely cool bag; you’ll get stuff from some of the biggest cat bloggers and cat-goodie-making companies in the country.
Some time within the next week or so, we’ll have information about how you can win. You don’t have to live in the U.S. to win, either: If you live in Canada, the UK, Australia or Europe, you too are eligible. How awesome is that?
Purrrrs to you all, and don’t lose hope: My tell-all memoir will continue, once all these silly special events and product reviews quit taking my spot!
