|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|
Aw this little guy is so cute. The kiwi we mean, not you or Hammy. We're off to bid...
Not of course that you aren't cute but, I mean, do you make peeping noises if we nom your beak ?
Ahhhhh what a cute Kiwi. We are definitely going off to bid. I will tell you why.........because Kiwi is my hooman sister Kyrrie's nickname from when she was at school. And because it's for a brilliant cause too :)xx
You touch my heart...
Awwww wow!!! What a great auction item! Thank you lovely Rumbles and gorgeous Hammy!!! Take care
Oh WOW - what a cutie that little guy is (well, you and Hamlet also are cute) Guess I'd better go over to the auction and see if M can afford this little guy> I think he's going to be one very popular item.
That is a cute kiwi. FIona the Diva would love to nom on his beak! So I put in a bid! -- Staffpurrson
Oh Dog! I bet that item goes for LOTS of papers!!!
So glad your new friend is a stuffed one. I bet a real alive one could get into a lot of trouble at your place.
We love your kiwi friend Rumbles - if we put a bid in do we both get a smooch?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
That kiwi sure is cute, Rumbles and Hammy (almost as cute as you guys)! We'll go check out the place to bid now. :)
What a cute kiwi to nibble on! Sending purrs...
That little dood is just so cute! We hope he brings in lots of bids!
Too cute. We better go check out that auction! Happy Wednesday!

Heading over tonight xoxox
Lisa, Abigail (anyone want a kitten??? ) and Finnegan

We LOVE Kiwi! And we'll have to go check out the auction!
Um...I loved your comment on my blog. Do you think I could have a date with BOTH of you???
Aw, cute! Nom-able things are always great!
Mr Kiwi sure is a cute fellow :)
I shall go over and see if I can make a bid on the auction after mom have gone to bed ;-)
That kiwi is very cute and you two boys are so handsome! What a great idea for an auction!
That's a very nice kiwi with only a slightly nommed beak.
I'm going to check out the auction.
and here we thought kiwi was a fruit.
what a cutie.
and how thoughtful of you to think of Mini!
we are purring for our Miss Mini.
Whoa! I could hve a kiwi that was nommed by you!!!! Count me in.
What a cool item for someone to bid on for the auction.
We still have our stuffed animals from the Secret Paws. For some reason, Mom Paula won't let us play with them...
Ohhhh he is sooooooooooo cute!
The kiwi is so very cute! I like seeing Hammy and Rumbles together in the picture, too! I hope Kiwi goes for many papers. Hugs, scritches, boops and lovies for Rumbles and Hammy!
Aw, we like that kiwi bird...though we wish it was the real thing! Haha! We're heading over to check out the auction!!
Oh! My! Cod! Not only is it a rare kiwo, but it has RUMBLES spit on it!
Me is heading over there right now to see if me can snag it!
what a catch...wink, wink...hope Miss Mini get way better, Savannah
I hope Miss Mini will get better soon!
I am sure you are going to get lots of moneys to help!
Kisses and hugs
The Human says we can go visit the auction cause we'll get some green paypurs Friday! That little birdie guy is pretty cute and it doesn't look like you guys have nommed him up toooo bad!
That Kiwi bird is so darn cute. Thanks for the great description of him. We think he is terrific. It is also very popular on the auction. Our Mom wants to bid on it and maybe she will. Too cute. And we sure thank you for putting it on the auction. Take care.
purrrrr, I think the value of the little Kiwi bird just went way up because you nommed on him a bit!
Awwww cute little kiwi birdie!
How dear of you to donate Mr Kiwi, the Rare. xox I wish I ad him especially since he has a nommable beak! xox
I'm sure that little guy will bring in some money for your friends. Who wouldn't want him to bat around? It's nice that he also helps rare birds.
Your pal, Pip
So cute - we saw this on the auction blog!
His nose does look very nom-able! He's a cutie pie, too. I will check out the auction, thanks.
Actually, the most appealing thing about this little guy is that you guys have slobbered on him a little.
That is one beaky handsome kiwi!!
Good idea to feature a donation on your blog reminding us of the auction.
We'll be stopping by!
so cute we want one :-) MOL
What a great looking kiwi! That's something we'd have to order since kiwis are quite rare in Canada ;)
Hi Rumblers. I wanted to make sure you see my response to the comment you made over at our place, so I'm copying it in here. I hope it's not too jolting for you to read this at the bottom of a perfectly delightful post, on an unrelated sad subject -- but I so appreciate you and I want to make sure you know it. Here we go:
Dear Rumbles. One thing that has so helped this process move along for me has been the understanding of those, like you, who’ve been here before me. I’ve been dropping in over at your place for an awfully long time now, and I don’t remember meeting Inigo . . . so this means you’re writing about a loss that happened quite a while ago and you still mourn.
A moment of silence for this mourning.
One friend assures me we never get over this. The grief may soften, but it is always there. I believe that. And oddly enough, as painful as it is, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Another friend says it’s a tribute to the beauty that was there.
Thank you for inspiring me with your presence, and for helping me recall these other friends’ presence as well.
Barney has taken to extending his (huge baseball-mitt) paw and touching my cheek ever so gently. I’m sending as many cheek-touches your way as you would enjoy.
PLUS -- Miss Mini reminds me of Barney! Huge paws!
Your Kiwi is cute. We posted on getting our duckies today. Stop over and check them out. Purrs.
That was so kind of you.I'm sure he'll get lots of bids.
Love and licks, Winnnie
Oh! Not only do we win the kiwi, but we get bonus Rumbles & Hammy smells? Heading over to bid now!
...but....but...how does that beak taste???
Aww thank you for sharing Kiwi for Mini's auction. He's adorable! Thank you. PURRRRRRRRRRRRS and *ducky hugs*
PS. Sanjee says HI especially to Rumbles
What a gorgeous Kiwi...and kitty approved too!!!
Hammy dude. That Kiwi does kinda match. Was he nommy?
Looks like I won the bidding for the Kiwi! This will make Fiona the Diva very happy!
