There seems to be some confusion amoungst want-to-be fledglings. There is no requirement for where you get your duckie!

You only need a duckie to join! That is it! No more, no less. You get your duckie were ever you want to get your duckie. Some of you chaps already have a swell duckie.

Duckies for Shelters is a kind thought to carry with you, not a requirement. Duckies for Shelters can be worked in many ways. @Cheriswan has purchased extra duckies to give to the #pawpawty charity by @frugaldougal and @Romeothecat. @Kritterkondo is bringing a whole box of goodies to her local shelter. is one of the many great ways you can help. For every 25 duckies purchased, they will donate so 1 duckie to kitty shelter. Then we have our fabulous feline @Babypatches, who has joined in the spirit. BabyPatches knows we love working with her and as a thank you for the love you have shown by getting your duckie with her, she is brinking 2 handsome duckies to her local shelter. I welcome the opportunity to partner with @Babypatches over and over again in anyway that could help Duckies for Shelters good will program.

Remember - this is a silly duckie club, with silly animals - who have good hearts and help where we can. :)

So go get yourself a duckie and report for role-call.

Alert fledgling doggies...KONG Dr. Noys toys makes multiple size Duckies for Large and Small Dogs! Instead or replaceable catnip, they have replaceable squeakers!! Brilliant! Well done KONG! offers the mini duckie- for small little breeds. When you click on the Button it will list suggested Breeds. If this is where you make your duckie investment, it will go to the Duckies For Shelters program! Yay! Just remember you need to use the button on my blog for it to count towards the program.
My next task is to contact some companies that offer the larger sized duckies for dogs so all doggies can have fun and safe duckie toy! If you have suggestions of other companies you have had good experiences with and reputable, please let me know. @SylvieDog, you just may end up with your dream duckie yet!

Hi Ho and what what fellow fledglings!

Clear the ear wax for this NEWSFLASH! Our very own beloved @Babypatches is going to donate two(yes 2) duckies in honor of The Duckie Club to the Cats in Need shelter where her mama adopted her from. How exciting is this!
@Babypatches is a long time supporter of the pawparties and a wonderful member of the twitter society. Babypatches, you make twitter a better place! As soon as Babypatches and the Mama visit the shelter and take some pics of the new fledglings, I will post them for all to see.
Well done fellow fledgling Babypatches! *High Paw and Nosetaps*
The Duckie Club, helping shelter kitties one feather at a time! :)
And if the honor Babypatches charity, I would like to mention that all sales (including duckies) for the month of June: 5% of proceeds will go to the Cats in Need Shelter.
The priveledge to be a part of helping kitties in shelters makes one's whiskers tingle! Again, thank you one and all for supporting The Duckie Club!


My dream for The Duckie Club was to have fellow Twitter anipals be part of a club that helps Shelter Kitties. I wanted to find a way to connect (at least some) of your purchases to donations to toys for shelter cats. I call this the Duckies For Shelters program. Jeeves witnessed first hand how empty the cages were in a shelter just the other day.
The first company to agree to assist in the Duckies For Shelters program from purchases made through this blog is Yay for! When making your purchases through, you must use the button on the right of the blog in order for it to count. It is the only way they know it from the duckie club and will make duckie donation. You may want to remember the nip refills. I am working on the dog Kong duck toys now ':-) Bet u didn't know they make them for doggies too!

What Ho!

Most of you litter box bound felines and carnivorous canines know me from twitter as @Manxington, along with my dashing and soggy toy- Grimy Duck. I suppose in all fairness I should mention my Valet, Jeeves. Jeeves is a good servant - brings me warm milk and ginger snaps before bedtime.

I shall now inform you on how The Duckie Club was hatched! I came into possession of my duckie about 3 years ago. Grimy Duck is both my pal and my pillow. After receiving so many inquisitive tweets about my rather ducky duckie, I started to wag the ol' chin as to the when, where, and how to educate kitties about obtaining one of these fine toys.

You see, they have catnip pouches (remind me of teabags) that come in refills, so the nip is niptasticly fresh! Grimy Duck has never ripped! Not one limb, no sign of stuffing, and no matter how hard I try when I play with him-I can't get the catnip slot open. Believe me, I've tried!

Then the noodle began to cook with the temperature set to bringing together the new feline fledglings. Eureka! The Duckie Club was born. To become a member of The Duckie Club you need to waddle up a hill while balancing a tray of toast on your head... Just kidding :)

1) Grab a duckie
2) Name your duckie
3) Take pic w/ your duckie (anipals only...sorry humans) and these photos must be rated G ( family show and all)
4) Post the pic on a web based page like for all to see.
5) Send the pic URL via twitter to @Manxington and @Shawneeshep (Shep is the Duckie Data Diva who takes care of the Member Roster page.
6) If for some reason you no not wish to be in the Duckie Movie - just say the word.

Ta Dah! You are in The Duckie Club! YAY!

You may use any kind of duckie. For those of you who are in need of a bird, you can check out "Where to get a duckie" page. There you will find out how your duckie purchase can help shelter kitties.

My KONG Dr. Noys duckie comes with Catnip refills and you can buy extra refills (look like tea bags). I've tried the loose stuff - go with the refills if you have carpets or if your human puts your toys in the washing machine because you can take the refill out.

To see which of your anipal friends are in the club check out the Member Roster.

Well, it's time to give the paw a rest. Until next time fellow fledglings!
