Giveaway winner, hooray!
It's been a big day for Fatpuss - all day long he's been pacing backwards and forwards around the house, miaowing loudly and with great vigour.
He's been looking forward to drawing the giveaway for ages ... every night for the past week, before I've tucked him into bed he's been asking if it's time for him to pick the winner. And I've answered Not yet, Fathead, not yet. Soon though, it will be time.
And here we are now on the giveaway day! He woke up in a great state this morning and required more than the usual amount of chompies, to fortify himself for the important task ahead.
I had to brush his fur especially well, as he knew he'd be appearing on camera again. He smoothed his whiskers down, and washed his paws, and put on his best collar, and then finally - at last - we were ready.
The Amateur Actress stood over him, with fifty-three entries in her hands. She threw them up into the air and they fluttered down around us like the ten thousand autumn leaves that fell onto my front path today a millisecond after I spent an hour sweeping up the original ones. (Sigh.)
Fathead fixed one with a steely gaze, shot out his paw as quick as lightning, and stomped it onto the ground. Then stood there, purring, terribly pleased with himself. And then he licked it.
Without further ado, the winner of the amazing, astounding, astonishing SURPRISE giveaway is ..... "thereisabuttonmissing" !!! Fatpuss sends his love and congratulations to you.
And if you could send me your address, your super-surprise box will be in the mail without further ado. Hurrah!!
(Afterwards, Fatpuss was so pleased with his sterling efforts that he went upside down in bliss.)
