BarkWorld Exclusive: Petco #StarWarsPets Collection & Commemorative Giveaway


Hi everyone, Katie here.

Glogirly had the pleasure of attending the BarkWorld Social Media & Pet Blogging Conference last week in Atlanta, GA. The pawsome peeps at Petco stepped forward and sponsored her trip. She got the inside scoop on a cool new collection they're launching in stores September 1.

Imagine if the classic Star Wars movie had featured CATS! Well, Petco has the next best thing – The Star Wars Pet Collection! I know what you're thinking...a bunch of dog clothes & chew toys, right? Well they came through with light sabers blazing.

There are wand toys, mice toys, feather toys, Princess Leia collars, Jabba the Hutt beds and more! All for us cats.
Clockwise: Yoda mouse, Darth Vader mouse, Stormtrooper mouse,
Princess Leia collar, Yoda wand toy, Chewy plush mouse.
Katie not included.


I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Yoda ears and Princess Leia bun caps. Unfortunately we were not able to get our paws on the real deal so Waffles and I are wearing Photoshop versions at the top of the post.

Speaking of ears, Petco will be giving away a pair of Yoda ears to the first 50 customers in each of their stores on September 1. You'll need to bring your own lawn chair if you plan on being first in line. (Check with your local Petco store for specifics before you go sleeping in the parking lot.)

Petco's mascots, Ruff & Mews, were onsite spreading some galactic love. Even Flat Waffles & Katie got in on the action.

Part of the perks of attending the conference and schmoozing it up was a limited edition messenger bag filled with Star Wars goodies. Glogirly and I talked it over and decided we wanted to give one lucky GLOGIRLY reader the cool bag & swag! (Waffles was not part of the decision...he couldn't stop pawing the bag and whapping the tennis ball.)


So, what's in the bag???


• Hand sanitizer with a mini carabiner
• First aid kit on a string
• Tennis ball (Waffles' FAVE!)
• Commemorative acrylic graphic plaque, signed & numbered by Ben Foos, the Petco Art Director who designed so many of the cool graphics and elements for their campaign.
• Plus a few *surprise* goodies...like a GLOGIRLY pink pen & more!

  2. I'll play. I'm most like Yoda--always wise and thoughtful and calm and loving. There is no try. So I will not try to guess the mystery blogger. I will insist that it is Brian's dad of Brian's Home. The hat gives it away!

  16. Back in the day when the first Star Wars came out, I attended 14 times. Friends thought I was nuts. I just loved it! Alice here would make a purrfect Yoda. Brian Frum's dad makes the great Chewy character! Count us in, please!

  21. Well, the Star Wars stuff sure does look fun. But I bet you would NOT be willing to wear real Yoda ears and Princess Buns. Anyhoo, we'll sit this giveaway out because we won your Glogirly bag full of stuff a little while go so want to give others a chance. If the random thingy picks us, just do it again.

  27. I love the photoshopped Yoda and Princess headgear on Waffles and Katie. But were they actually on a chair together? I hope that wasn't photoshop... I can dream, can't I?

  38. Back in 1976 I was in the theatre when the SW trailer was shown. YEAH I can't wait. I buy the paperback book when it's released and read it on our annual family trip to Dallas. I tell my MOM we are going to see this movie while we are there in early June 1977. There were only a handful of people in the theatre that day, but I will never forget it. I went on to see SW once a week for each week that summer I was 16. It stayed the entire summer. I knew each line and I loved it. It is still one of my all time favorites. I got to meet Mark Hamill several times. Our favorite character then as you can surmise is Luke Skywalker. Am glad that the original trio will be back in the new film that will be coming out. so please enter us.

  57. I liked you on Facebook - My cat is like slave Leia - She is a hairless cat but has some hair on her legs. We joke that she is topless so Slave Leia makes so much sense.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I followed on twitter and tweeted - Our other cat is very yoda like - he is a sphynx and has larger ears. If he talked I know he would use yoda speak

    ReplyDelete
  59. Haha, we love the ears on Katie and W2! We've decided that Wilbur and Louie are storm troopers.
    And that HAS to be Brian's dad dressed as Chewy. We know we're not the first 10 entries. Our mom has been doing stuff (we're not sure what), and she hasn't been blogging lately. Hmph.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I followed you on pintrest - I would say my third cat is kind of like Max Rebo because he likes to bang on things.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I shared the facebook contest. My final character for my cat is salacious crumb - He loves to sit next to me and because he is a sphynx

    ReplyDelete
  62. OMC, you two crack us up! That looks like Brian's Dad to us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Note to mom: Don't look at photoshopped ears on Waffles with coffee in mouth. We LOVE those Starwars toys and think they need to make an appearance at our house to give our mousies some competition. That Chewbacca mouse toy is begging to be chewed on! Purrs...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well, we know that is Brian's dad, Terry Frum, from Brian's Home. The Fedora is a dead giveaway. Mommy was laughing so hard at the photo of you two with buns and ears, even if they were Photoshopped. Mommy's not going to enter the giveaway, but she's definitely going to check out those new Star Wars kitty toys at Petco. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
