Tilly’s Baby Pool Giveaway

There’s so much going on! I could blog about farmer’s marketing…or fireworks…or Tour de Fleece.

But instead, we’re going to jump way, way ahead of schedule and have—yes, that’s right!—another giveaway!

This one was all Allison‘s idea, and due to the limited time frame at hand, we’re kicking it off today: Tilly’s Baby Pool Giveaway!

I am just so special.

Tilly’s getting rounder and rounder, but we still have no clue how many kittens she’s having or when she’ll pop. So, just like your office baby pool, here’s the contest:

  • Each person gets one entry. Leave a comment to enter. You can comment more than once, but only one comment will count.
  • You get two chances to win.
  • First, guess how many kittens Tilly will have. Be specific. Entries that say “5 or 6” or something to that effect will not count. We need a solid number here.
  • Second, guess the day that Tilly will have her kittens. What day of what month do you think they’ll be born?
  • The person who guesses correctly will win! If no one guesses correctly, the person who guesses closest without going over will win. In the event of two or more correct guesses, the winner will be chosen by random.org.
  • There are two prizes, and one person can win both prizes, if they guess correctly.

Now, a lot of people will never get to actually see Tilly in person, so of course you need some belly pics. All the photos in this entire post were taken today.

Also, keep in mind that on Friday, June 25, the vet weighed Tilly in at 9.2 pounds, so she’s not a big girl at all.

And here’s the goods.

The person who guesses the litter size correctly will win these two matching dyelot skeins of Koigu KPPPM, Colorway P838, graciously donated by Allison for this giveaway:

The person who correctly guesses the day Tilly will deliver will win this 2 ounce bump of Fiber Fancy bombyx silk in the “Beautiful Blues” colorway:

Keep in mind: I have no clue when or how many. This is a total game of chance, and she could go at any time so get your guesses in quickly! Comments will close when the kittens are born.

Happy guessing!

Edit — July 15: Tilly went into labor this morning! Comments are now closed  🙂

  23. Lj says:

    Wow, she’s not very big at all, is she? I’m going to say 3 kittens, on July 30th. That should give her plenty of time to get ridiculously fat and wobbly. (:

  24. Geetu says:

    4 kittens on July 25th.

    and MOAR Pictures please!

    I have no idea when she’ll go, or how many kittens she’ll have, but I think the prize for the winner should be a kitten! But only if the winner wants and can take care of one.

  35. Walden says:

    I am guessing 7 kittens on July 12th. I know the pregnant cat I adopted many years ago, she didn’t look big, vet guessed 4 kittens, she ended up having 7 or 8 and she had them about 2 weeks before the vet guessed she would!

    I guess three kitties on July 19 🙂 And Gordon wants a kitty for when he move to NC in August but I told him yours wouldn’t be ready to leave mama yet. I might have to bring him over to encourage kitty fever though 🙂

    • weaselmomma says:

      No, they won’t be ready to leave mommy in August. But the Kitty Express will be in West Virginia sometime this fall, so he can always meet us there for kitten procurement 🙂

  46. JJ says:

    July 22, 7 kittens.

    Her teats don’t look well-developed enough to go just yet. Then again, I am totally talking out of my @$$ as I can’t remember much about therio from vet school.


  47. […] remember Tilly’s baby contest and her birth like it was yesterday. I remember falling in love with the cutest little puff of fluff I’d […]
