Happy 29th Birthday to My Rags!

Rags Ragdoll Cat in a Sink

Well, if you have been on this site for awhile, you know who Rags is.

For those who do not know him, he was my childhood Ragdoll cat. Today is his birthday.

Rags was born on 8/8.  I will always honor his birthday on the site because he is the reason this site exists.

8 is my favorite number. It is also the reason I do a lot with 8s on the site. For example, every blog post is published at 8:08am Kansas City time every day. Rags was born in California, so perhaps I should have it publish on Pacific Time – but I don’t because his life was spent in Kansas City.

Rags’ face is the one in our profile photo on Facebook, Instagram and more.  He was one of the greatest loves of my life – and I am so thankful he was in it for the 19.5 years that he was – as my love for him helped to create this website, which has become my livelihood and one of my great joys.

Thank you all for being here to help celebrate my joy – my Rags – and all beautiful kitties!

I am very excited to announce that Duckyworld Products, Inc. who makes the Yeowww! Catnip Banana has chosen to sponsor a bonus giveaway on Rags’ Birthday – and in keeping with the “8s” tradition, they have agreed on 8 lucky winners.

Rags never really liked any cat toys other than a piece of string.  When he was 15 years old, Santa left a Yeowww! Catnip Banana in his stocking.  He not only went NUTS for it, but continued to play with it for years afterwards (check out the videos at the bottom of this post of Rags rubbing on a Yeowww! Catnip Banana at the age of 18).  Before I started this website, I wrote Duckyworld thanking them for the Yeowww! Catnip Banana because never ever had he liked a toy like he liked his nanner.  It remains my ALL TIME FAVORITE cat toy because of his love for it (and because all of our cats since have loved it).

The Yeowww! Catnip Banana is a durable cat toy in the shape of a banana.  It is filled with 100% catnip (so you don’t have to worry about your kitty swallowing fiber fill) and the outside of it is a canvas-y yellow material that kitties like to bite and gnaw on.  It lasts for months and months in our house.

So, now 8 lucky winners will each win one Yeowww! Catnip Banana for their kitty!  YAY!

THANK YOU DUCKYWORLD!

  2. ~ Happy Birthday Rags! ~
    I’m thankful as well for all the love that you and Rags shared, that inspired you to create “Floppycats.com.”
    Thanks a bunch for this giveaway!!!

  3. Happy birthday, Rags! They are with you forever, aren’t they? Thanks for the chance to win one of these awesome toys. We currently have FIVE cats at our house, as my daughter’s boyfriend is staying with us until they find a suitable place (he had moved into an apartment not far from us but found bedbugs, so now he’s searching for a bug-free place to rent). With that many cats, and adding in three crazy Coonhounds, the stress level at our house has been higher than usual for the furbabies. The boyfriend’s cats, especially, since they are not used to dog plus had two moves in less than a month. I think this would be perfect for all the cats to share and bond over.

  4. Rags looks like he was such a special, beautiful soul – thank you for sharing his story with us!! I have a feeling that Ninja would LOVE a Yeowww! Catnip Banana – she hasn’t had a chance to try one yet, but brings her favorite toys to bed & cuddles them while sleeping. 🙂
