Update: Congratulations to Clenna Emery! She was randomly selected to win The Tiniest Tiger Swag Bag! This month, we were thrilled to be a part of the Red Carpet Cat with Gracey from The Tiniest Tiger. The goal of the event was to introduce The Tiniest Tiger’s fabulous new “Hipster Bag,” but it turned into so much more.
As a result of the spectacular turnout, we are pleased to offer our pack of pet lovers a chance to win their very own Oscar night swag “hipster bag” filled with feline gifts – a value of nearly $250!
Read on to learn how you can win your very own Oscars swag bag.
The #RedCarpetCat Twitter Event
The night began with a Twitter party marked #RedCarpetCat where hundreds of participants answered entertaining questions about famous felines. It was sidelined by thousands of conversations about pets, which is usually what happens when Packs and Prides unite on Twitter. Every 10 minutes, a Tiniest Tiger Swag Bag was given away to many lucky participants. The animal pack nearly crippled Twitter with all the tweets!
While most of us spent the evening at the Twitter party, Flat Gracey and Joanne hung out with lots of celebrities. One of our most favorite, Angela Kinsey (who plays the "quirky" cat lady on The Office), was even there!
Here’s a sneak peak at a few more of our favorites:
Even the boys got into the bag!
The Hipster Bag
The fantastic feline Hipster features The Tiniest Tiger’s feline finesse quilted into the fabric creating a subtle, yet distinctive cat appearance. The irresistible quilting combined with the hands-free practicality of the cross body design makes the Hipster a perfect bag when you’re on the prowl.
The bag's inside dimensions are 8 inches in width and 9.75 inches in length. There is also a zippered pouch in the front of the bag 6.75 inches in width and 6.75 inches in length. There are two inside pocket to help you stay organized.
Best of all – it’s made in the USA!
All About the Designer
So, who is this person behind this cool cat Hipster Bag? Joanne McGonagle is the author of The Tiniest Tiger and co-owner of Triple T Studios. She’s an avid fan of cats (both large and small) and even spent last summer living among lions and the Maasai in Kenya. She’s so committed to the preservation of big cats that she’s in the Global Field Master of Zoology program. Her blog, The Tiniest Tiger, has raised over $30,000 to help both domestic and big cats programs.
