Phoebe’s Contest

Hi everyone!

Ready for the contest? I am going to have you take a guess as to whether the new kitty is a boy or a girl. Also, does it have a microchip? I am sure many will answer both correctly so whoever does will be entered to win this catnip mat and crocheted turkey leg and baby rat.

Just answer in the comment section of today’s post. I will accept answers until Wednesday night at 9 PM ( EST). I will announce the winner in Thursday’s post.

Mom will be heartbroken if this kitty has a microchip, she is already quite attached. She has been able to brush the kitty and remove some mats. There was no fleas or flea dirt which is a miracle.

I haven’t seen Grammie since Saturday and I miss her. I love her so very much, I hope she visits soon.





    1. Thanks for guessing. I think it is spayed too because it does not seem to be pregnant and if it is a boy, it is definitely neutered πŸ™‚ XO

  1. I say boy and no microchip… at least, I’m crossing my paws for no microchip since I think you want s/he to stay here!

  2. We are guessing she is Emmy and has no chip…but if there are no fleas, then someone treated her?? And since she is so furendly already she obviously was not on her own for too long.

    Its hard to imagine a pretty kitty like this to be ‘dumped’. ]

    1. Thanks for guessing. I can’t imagine anyone dumping this kitty, but it is scared of men so I think it may have been abused.

  3. I think Oscar has found his new home and he doesn’t have a chip……BUT he may have been neutered already…….no matter WHAT, I think he/she is HOME AT LAST!!! Glad your Mom got to brush the kitty and get its’ beautiful fur sorted out…..the flea treatment she gave it seems to have worked!

    Hugs, Teddy

    1. Thanks for guessing. I am surprised there was no flea dirt even if the meds worked, there should have been dirt. XO

    1. If it is a boy, he has been neutered because there is no smell- I remember Brody was potent πŸ™‚ Thank you, I hope I can keep him too.

  4. We’re guessing that this adorable kitty is a boy and that (paws crossed) there is no microchip. Kitty sure does look and sound like such a sweetheart, and we hope this kitty’s forever home is yours!

  5. We think he’s a boy with no chip. We’re hoping no microchip.

  6. Such a beautiful fur baby. Thank you for taking that sweetie in out of the elements.
    Scout Charles says “No chip and a male kitty”.
    FYI he’s often WRONG.

    1. Thank you, I hope I can keep the kitty, such a sweetie. Thanks for guessing Charles. XO

  7. Since i already won one of your contests, i’ll bow out with this comment — since the cat is so matted, even if there is a microchip, you might be able to report it as neglected and be allowed to keep her/him. There could be extenuating circumstances, as in the cat ran off when the family moved and they couldn’t find it, but be a little suspicious until you know for certain.

  8. Girl kitty and no chip. I don’t have any kitties though so if I win I’ll gift this win to Marg of Margs Animals.

    Have a purrfect day, Phoebe. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

    1. I am sure Marg’s cats would love for you to win πŸ™‚ Thanks for guessing.

  9. We think boy and no microchip. That is so great you can already brush him/her!

  10. We think a girl and a microchip but no owner. You know how some folks just move away and leave us. We’re glad cat moms like yours take care of left-behind cats. πŸ™‚

    We hope you get to see Grammie soon!

  11. What matters is that kitty has found his/her forever home … and I know your Mom will love and take care of kitty better than just about anyone else would. Blessings all around πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ If kitty is chipped, she has to give it back, but otherwise, he or she joins the family. XO

  12. Hmm…a puzzlement! This kitty looks so much like our Angel Sammy, but I cannot really tell if boy or girl. Okay, I’ll go for boy. No to microchip. I am concerned that this beauty was declawed and dumped, because why else would he be roaming around? You are keeping the mystery going!

    1. The kitty has claws, I checked for that. Very sweet cat though, doesn’t try to scratch.

  13. LadyMum was convinved hee iss Oscar butt thee more wee looked at thee foto wee fink shee iss Emmy an NO microchippy fing. Wee not sure if Lady Ellen tooked thee kitty to bee checked fur a chippy fing……

    yur lookin beeuteefull purr usual Phoebe gurl πŸ˜‰
    All mee LUV an ***paw kissesss*** Siddhartha Henry xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. I first spotted the kitty April 30th, but it may have been around 2 week beyond that because some animal was trying to break into the garage.
      I don’t know how it avoided fleas, I treated a few days ago, but there was no flea dirt.
      That is my hope, a girl with no chip, but boy or girl, I am keeping unless there is a chip.
      Phoebe sends all her love again and lots of kisses. XOXOXOXXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

      1. If EmmyorOscar stayss with you then mee will know it was Snowball who sent her-him to you πŸ˜‰

        1. Thank you, I am sure this sweet kitty was Heaven sent. XO Phoebe sends her love and kisses.

  14. I’m guessin’…

    I’m guessin’ he’s a boy kitty and I’m purrin’ and purrin’ AND PURRIN’ there’s no microchip. You know, on account of your mum wantin’ him to join your family.


  15. A boy kitty and no microchip. And baby rat!? WOW! I hope I win!

    Phoebe, your gramme will be there very soon. She loves YOU very much.

    1. A lot of you are guessing that πŸ™‚ The baby rat is cute. Grammie will be here Thursday.

  16. I’m thinking either girl or neutered boy, because you’d know an intact male if you had one. πŸ™‚ and no, no chip. They just are not widely used. and then on the off chance there is one, I bet it isn’t registered, because that happens a lot too

    1. Yes, I remember the smell Brody had because he was not fixed. I am hoping it is a girl though, either way, I already love the kitty.

  17. That kitty has to stay with you. We know Snowball sent him/her. We are going to guess no chip and male. We pray for you there is no microchip. We were so afraid one would be found in Cooper Murphy. We can get attached so quickly. Love to all. XOCK Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    1. Cooper Murphy is a sweetie and he didn’t have one so I am hopeful this kitty won’t either. A girl would be easier to get Sammy to accept. XO

  18. dood…wavez two ewe oscar; we iz glad ya final lee finded yur cuzin brody; havin noe chipz can due that ya noe…make ya late for a meet N greet N stuff ~~~~~ ? β™₯β™₯β™₯

    N hay look, we due knot even noe R own e mail !!!!

  19. My guess: boy, and, “chipped” keeps popping into my head, though I don’t want a chip to be in there either! I can’t imagine going through getting a pet chipped and then not keeping up with the pet.

    It is such a beautiful kitty. Black and white, a classic kitty. It looks so very soft. πŸ™‚

    Have a blessed day.

    1. Thank you for guessing. I am hoping for a girl , no chip. It is very afraid of my hubby so I think a man abused him or her πŸ™

      1. Awww I’m sorry to hear that. Is your husband very tall? If he is, maybe this is intimidating to the kitty. When we got our Angel dog Shep, she was afraid of David to start with. He’d stand up and she’d cower. We wondered if maybe she’d been abused before, too. She got to be accepting of him, but she would still cower when he stood up. If your husband sits down and talks softly to the kitty, no sudden moves or anything like that, and over time slowly gets closer and closer, maybe the kitty will learn to trust him. That is how it was working for me and our Angel Bagels. He was a no pet me for the longest time, but he eventually let me slowly approach and pet him. Then, David went into the hospital for a month and all of my trust gaining got undone because I was not here to help Bagels remember that I was safe.

        Sorry to ramble on. I hope that this kitty will learn to trust your husband. Have a blessed night. πŸ™‚

        1. That is not rambling, I enjoy hearing of other’s experiences with pets and how they deal with things. I think she will trust him eventually. XO

    1. Thanks for guessing. If you win, you can choose someone to send it to that has cats πŸ™‚

  20. We are guessing a girl and no chip! We are so happy this cat is safe with you Ellen. It looks as though it has suffered in the hands of people in the past πŸ™

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. Thank you, you are correct alog with 11 others so I am going to do a drawing soon. I think that too, but all my love for her will help her trust. XO

  21. Hello lovlies!?
    Awww what a total sweetie! I hope the kitty doesn’t have a chip and is in need of a wonderful furever home like yours! I really understand getting attached quickly. Every single cat on earth will steal my heart instantly! That’s just how it is?? Every kitty is such a unique and amazing soul and a wonderful friend.

    Since we’re not too late yet with guessing, Murli and I will take a guess. Murli says no chip, and I say the kitty is a girl??

    Sending purrs, hugs and love!
    Natascha and Murli?

    1. Murli is correct, along with 11 others so I am doing a drawing and will announce the winner shortly. XO and love to you both.

  22. Fingers crossed that there’s no chip!
    I’m going to guess he’s a he…. but he’s awfully pretty, so I could be wrong!
    Mickey Mouser and Rufus would love to win a toy made by Ms Ellen.
