UPDATE:  The giveaway is closed and all winners have been notified and coupons have been mailed!  Thanks for all who entered!  The winning rescue was The Way Home Inc.
*****************************************************
We're going to kick off 2014 with a giveaway!  Last November we got an email from the Tidy Cat folks saying if we sent our blog logo by the next morning we'd get custom coupons.  Mommy was in Disneyland at the time but thankfully after a few panicked moments she was able to figure out what to send.  A couple of weeks ago, we were totally surprised by what we got in return.  Our logo is on the coupon!  How cool is that!
We got 150 custom coupons good for $5 off a package of Tidy Cats any size, any variety (excluding the 24/7 Performance LightWeight Litter).  That still leaves lots of litters to choose from...
We got an idea from our friend Sparkle on how to give these away so following her lead this is what we're going to do.  We'll give 10 readers each a stack of 10 coupons (a $50 value)!  The remaining 50 coupons will be given to a local cat rescue!
Here's how to enter:

1) Tell us in the comments you'd like to enter (or enter for someone else).  The coupons are only good here in the U.S. (sorry!) but our international friends can enter on behalf of a U.S. resident if you'd like.
2) Tell us the name of your favorite cat rescue.  You can do this even if you do not wish to be entered in the drawing yourself.

That's it!  Easy peasy and a great way to save money on, uh, our facilities plus a great way to help a cat rescue!  We'll randomly pick the winners Sunday, January 5th. 

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Oh HOW COOL!! We would LOVE to be entered in the giveaway. As for a cat rescue...that's difficult. However, we recently learned about FRoNN (Feline Rescue of Northern Nevada)and we think it's wonderful.

Oooh, we could use that litter here! Can I choose a friend who takes in kitties as my "rescue?" I'd like to pick Marg from Marg's Animals--she has a ton of kitties that she takes in and feeds. I'm sure she could use some litter for her bunch.

Grace said... January 2, 2014 at 9:05 AM

I'd like to enter and send the coupons to Morgen Pittman of The Cat Blogosphere - he has a boatload of his own kitties plus he fosters. And I am touting King Street Cats, a local rescue.

How terrific to enter Marg--we had thought of her right away. And of course there are SO many deserving shelters and rescue organizations.

Good luck to all your participants!

Thank you!
Happy New Year!

I use Tidy Cats, so I'd love to be part of this giveaway!

I also figure that you know better than I do, who locally could use the most help taking care of their kitties, so I will leave that up to you Sharla! Someone in the Willamette Valley, please! ♥

Ann said... January 2, 2014 at 12:19 PM

I would like to enter but for Marg of Margs animals. I don't know any cat rescue groups but Marg takes in all kinds of cats

The Army of Four said... January 2, 2014 at 12:40 PM

How cool is that?!?! While we don't use kitty litter, Mom's birding buddy does! We'd love to win some coupons for her! We don't really have a favorite cat rescue group, but does our local shelter count? Reitz Animal Shelter here in the Little Apple. It's sort of my alma mater. Or at least the place of my incarceration (and Dave's and Stormy's). They have a lot of kitties there!
This is really nice of you girls! Good luck to everyone!
Play bows,

No kitties here, but we think that is a great win and an even better way to share them. We are sure a lot of rescues would be very grateful to win a few of those coupons.

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

I have to use a special litter but I wouldllike to mention a shelter thst can use it. Sav-r-cats.com in Myrtle Beach.

Kaprys said... January 2, 2014 at 5:15 PM

I would like to enter to give the coupons to some great rescues in my area (northern Iowa), Rustic Hollow Sanctuary which takes in (many) special needs cats and Witty Kitties which cares for FELV/FIV cats. They are both no kill shelters and the kitties have permanent homes there :) (Some do get adopted too!)They are also working hard at getting kitties in and safe in our frigid weather!

So my favorite rescues are those two as well as Blind Cat Sanctuary in North Carloina.

Meredith Granholm said... January 3, 2014 at 8:43 AM

I would like to enter this contest on behalf of Austin Pets Alive rescue since I use the lightweight tidy cats formula all the coupons will be donated to APA since they can always use more litter for the kitties.

I would be thrilled to win one of those pawsome coupon packs to save on kitty litter! Hard to choose a favorite rescue, but I do like the Cat House on the Kings in California.

Texas, a Cat in... Austin said... January 3, 2014 at 12:42 PM

That's a great idea that you had!

We'd love to be entered, please. Tidy Cats is our litter!

As for naming a cat rescue, I would say City Critters in NYC.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Da Katz said... January 3, 2014 at 1:25 PM

We go through a lot of Tidy Cats, so we're sure our mommy would appreciate the coupons. Two of us had a brief stay at the Wake County Animal Shelter here in Raleigh, NC before going to our fur-ever home, so we would like to nominate them, too.

barkergirl33 said... January 3, 2014 at 3:46 PM

Great giveaway- with 5 kitties in our family and the CNY Cat Coalition we help and our local Humane Assn too) we all go through a ton of litter! Raine buzzyngabe( at) yahoo.com

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said... January 4, 2014 at 9:35 AM

A shelter north of us in Beacon N.Y. had a fire and have to completely rebuild. All the cats are scattered in foster homes.

Kitties Blue said... January 7, 2014 at 10:02 AM

We think this was absolutely the coolest thing that Tidy Cats did. And Mom is super duper happy 'cause we actually won coupons from Sparkle. As you can imagine, eight kitties use lots of litter and the Tidy cats with Glade is our favorite. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, and Calista Jo

Jans Funny Farm said... January 16, 2014 at 12:56 PM

You don't mention when the giveaway ends and we can't find where you gave them away yet, so we thought we'd add our name, just in case. And we'd pick. PAWS from Animal Shelter Volunteer Life (meowmeowmans).
