Pootie Pad Party on Daily Kos

A group for people who have Pootie Pads -- or who enjoy pootie pictures.
  1. Pootie Pads are a product that arose because of the daily Pootie diaries here on Daily Kos — they were designed with the cats of Kossacks in mind.  Made with love by myself and my sister, winglion, they are little quilts filled with human grade, organic catnip (the best we have ever found) from Oregon.  All the fabrics are pre-washed before we use them so the pads are innocent of any toxic sizing or preservatives.  Cats love them!  The pads promote play — and also seem to have a soothing effect on anxious cats (making them the perfect liner for a cat carrier during travel).  Elderly cats love them, too — we think because the catnip eases the aches and pains of older bones and joints.

    Kanga Rue is a disabled kitty with deformed front paws.  A 501(c)(3) non-profit shelter for special needs cats helped her find her forever home.  Bluetownship kindly donated a bunch of Pootie Pads and our catnip toys to this shelter where they brought much joy and will be donating more this month.  Thank you so much, bluetownship!
  2. Wow. Just wow. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I have been sitting here leaking tears reading all the kind and wonderful messages, and Sara and Ann, that kitty card you sent with the shipment is adorable. 

    Ok, so I know we are supposed to publish the “christened by pooties” pictures of our quilts, but frankly, it’s been impossible to get a decent picture. Marvin went utterly bonkers the minute I attempted to spread this on the bed, and all the pictures are quite blurry. There seems to be a bit of, er, ESSENCE of the pootie pad it was shipped with in the quilt itself. I had to lock Marvin out of the bedroom so I could get THIS picture, and I fear I will have to take it away until he calms down a little, lest he shred it. He has been rolling around in utter bliss now for awhile. 

    Teddums tends to stay clear of Marvin when he is nip-crazed, but Teddums found the accompanying pootie pad in the kitchen practically before I had THAT out of the box haha. 

    You sure do grow better Nip there in Oregon than we can here in Minnesota hahahahaha. 

    Thank you all for your love and contributions — a thousand million times. You know I love youse guys. 

    Love, Rose

    And finally, the one decent picture I’ve managed to get of them lately, where they were both still and looking at the camera
