Introducing: Madeline Silver Belle.
Thank you to the 300 or so folks who wrote to us with their name suggestions. We read every single one, often more than twice. We were so moved – most of you shared personal stories which went with the name you selected. Some names were beloved friends, family members or departed feline friends. The stories were beautiful. How much Kleenex did we go through? Countless pieces, at least one box! (good thing it’s made from recycled paper)
The most popular name by a landslide was Grace and some really fun variations: Gracie, Gracy, Grayse, Amazing Grace.
Big thank you to Michelle and Jessica for selecting Madeline. That was the name she responded to the most (yes we tried every single name to see which she liked best) And a big thank you to Tonda for the Silver Belle part.
Madeline does not meow: she squeaks, chirps, and peeps – it’s like listening to a tiny silver bell jingle! A cat toy is winging its way to the three of you as a thank you gift from Madeline!
Madeline Silver Belle is completely at ease with her new life. She’s never “had a job” before (other than being cute) and she’s enjoying her Cat Faeries duties which include: supervising, alerting us when it’s lunch time, testing toys, insisting we have an afternoon nap and pushing paper off desk tops.
Here’s pictures of Madeline Silver Belle hard at work!
After our beloved Betty crossed The Rainbow Bridge a year ago we weren’t sure if or when we’d get another cat. But one look at a cat on the website of a shelter that we donate to – the Siskiyou Humane Society – we were smitten kittens over a cat they called Spice.
Spice had been at the shelter for a year. Because she’s a special needs kitty she was not being adopted. Her background is like that of so many cats, she’d been abused. She was kicked in the ear and head by a miserable excuse for human being, which left her deaf in that ear and with some blindness in one eye. Her ear requires cleaning and drops.
Our home is now her new forever home and she’s Cat Faeries new CFO – Chief Feline Officer. She’s 3 years old, short haired, and mostly gray with white shoes, bib, and tummy. She has lovely green eyes and is a very sweet girl. Spice doesn’t meow – she cheeps, peeps and squeaks! Spice and our Three Little Olde Ladies (Tasha, Spookie and Tortie) are still getting to know each other – so far they’ve been getting along very well.
Halloween is the start of the Winter holidays and cats everywhere are making their lists of the toys they want. This year they may find our Catnip mice, poached eggs, carrots, corn on the cob, strawberries, and other tempting shapes all wrapped up and awaiting their playful paws!
Going to a holiday party held at a home with cats? Cat toys make great “hostess gifts.” Its always thoughtful and meaningful to gift the host’s or hostess’s cats or children. We don’t carry items for children, but we can help you with goodies for their cats.
Keep checking our website. We plan to introduce some absolutely mouth watering new cat toy shapes . . . and rumor has it that our muse, Betty the cyber cat, is launching her signature “fragrance.” The paparazzi have been staking out our office hoping to catch a glimpse of Betty for a quote about the return of Cat Faerie Mist – our wildly popular Catnip floral water spray. But we can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet. Stay tuned!
Enjoy all the festivities this time of year offers! And drive carefully, be kind to strangers, and smile!
Here’s a quote from a long time customer of ours:
Christmas isn’t Christmas without Cat Faeries’s toys. I have 5 cats, and they have been enjoying these great toys for several years now. We have “spread the wealth” to the cats of friends – always well-received and well-enjoyed!
My cats are veggie-lovers, corn and carrots are their favorites!! Thanks for the many hours of enjoyment!!
