. . . for the most unusual pet photo sent to me during the Mouse-a-thon, Danielle would win.
There are her hermit crabs, Neptune and Ephyra, posing as Mouse-a-thon spokesmodels.
And in the running for the Izzy Look-a-like Prize?
This is Spicey, Jan’s kitty.
Adorable doggie photo?
This is Renee’s Homer, who emailed me over the weekend to plead with me to give his mommy the address for mouse submissions, as he was under attack!
Stop the Presses!
Because we have another mouse-a-thon prize!
The Head Mouse Bagger worked overtime this weekend.
We took a shopping bag full of mousies to Barbara, the director of Capital Animal Care, on Saturday. I wish you guys could have seen how delighted she was. You all have made her very happy. We’re going to bring her a couple more bags next Saturday.
And speaking of rodents, over the weekend I received mousies from Andrea in Kensington, MD, Krista in Cambridge, MA, Mary in Glendale, NY, Margaret in Oregon, WI, Janet in Riverside, CA, Michelle in Takoma Park, MD, Alison in Brookline, MA, and Silvia in Petaluma, CA. Many thanks to all of you. You can see how close to 1000 we are now!
As I mentioned last week, we’re going to wait until I’m relatively certain I have everyone’s entries before doing the raffle. So if you’ve not yet mailed your mousies and think you’re too late . . . you’re not! Just send them in asap, please, and you’ll still be in time for the drawing.
I Haven’t Forgotten About Marina
Friday evening was all about mouse bagging, but I did do some work on Marina.
And a close-up.
So I’ll be finishing her by the end of the week, assuming work doesn’t interfere too much.
And I started a new sock. Pix of that tomorrow.
You didn’t think you’d get away without a look at Lucy, did you?
