|WOAH! What a beak!
Have you ever seen anything like him? Probably not because he is SO rare!
This little guy is a rare white coloured 'North Island Brown Kiwi' bird (ok, so he's a STUFFED version, but he's still COOL) They say this kiwi is regarded as a 'special gift' and a 'sign of new beginnings'.
We LOVE him to bits (I may have even nomed his beak a little. But just a little)
|Om nom nom
This little guy even TALKED to me!! Of course I had to talk back...
|Why yes, I do think you're quite fetching in white!
|Hey, he's MY Kiwi buddy!
|What you lookin' at, Mister Kiwi?
|Hey, we almost match!
Our sweet pal Miss Mini from 'George the Duck' blog has had some serious medical problems of late, and the wonderful Cat Blogosphere has put together an auction to help with the costs of her medical bills. Mister Kiwi is the item we've donated, and that you can bid on to own!
He makes genuine Kiwi 'peeping' noises, in addition to being soft and fluffy (and having a nom-able nose).
We bought him from the Department of Conservation, and part of the proceeds go towards supporting the 'Native Bird Programme'... so if you buy him you're also helping his real-life counterparts!
We will be paying the shipping, including international shipping.
There are heaps of other items on auction - so if you're not into Mister Kiwi, take a look at some of the fantastic things that people have donated!
Please stop by and make a bid on this very special fella, to support a very special lady-cat.
|BOOTIFUL Miss Mini
