Just one thing, but what a purr-fect thing for PINK SATURDAY!


If you've been coming to visit with me on Pink Saturdays for very long you know that pink is a part of my DNA! I'm only featuring on thing today but what a cutie pie!
Today when out shopping, out of the corner of my eye (they rotate for the color pink) I spotted this kitty cookie canister. My gosh, it was pinkie l♥ve at first sight. My ♥ skipped a beat and I nearly swooned right there in the pet isle. My hands grew clammy, my brow perspired and my bottom lip quivered. I grabbed this little stinker and cradled it in my hands ever so gently; not wanting a scratch or dent to mar its lovely surface from store cart to my kitchen at home.It sits on my counter now, next to the pink cookie jar I have for my dogs (previous pink Saturday feature) filled to the brim with Temptations of every variety to tantalize my feline babies. Because I am so smitten, there was no way I was going to make my newest pink aquisition share the spot-light. This deserves a Pink Saturday all to itself!

Be sure to check out all of the other wonderful blogs Beverly has featured for PINK SATURDAY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND. It's a pink fix that you'll never forget and one where you will come back for more...and more.

I'm so sorry to hear that you're still having bad weather. I would gladly send you some of our California sunshine. I think we are getting a break this weekend. It's only supposed to be in the high 90's!
Have a wonderful weekend!

ahhh, how adorable this is. Isn't it fantastic that GOD made the color PINK to help you thru these rainy days!!
Now, me on the other hand, LIVE for rainy days. I love every one of them...did as a kid in Dallas where it rained almost every afternoon.
Hope it clears up there, tho, so you can enjoy the rest of the summer.

I had to smile at your post, because that canister is just perrrrfect. My cat is a guy so I don't know if he would mind a little pink in his life. I think he probably couldn't care less, just give me the treats, Happy PInk Saturday to you, Char
