And the Winner Is …


Hi Efurryone!  Thank you all so much for all the Birthday Wishes!  Caramel and I had a great time at our “Coming-Out Party” with all of you to help us celebrate! It was great to see friends we knew, as well as to meet new friends! Plus, with all the comments we received, we were able to make a nice donation to the Humane Society of the United States!!

We decided to have a contest for a Gift Certificate to The Animal Rescue Site store! Since Caramel and I both celebrated our birthdays, we decided that each of us should choose a winner.

We typed all of your names onto a piece of paper, and then Panda Bear “assisted” with trimming the paper into individual pieces for each name.

Then, we put the little pieces of paper into a special bowl (Mom says it is handmade by a very special friend).  Padre inspected the names in the bowl to make sure they all were in there.

Padre said that the names passed his inspection, and it was time to draw the winners!

I really didn’t want all that responsibility, so I let Panda Bear choose my name for me.

Panda Bear carefully considered his options.

Finally, Panda Bear selected the first winner!

And the winner is … Noll from Noll’s Nip!

Caramel wanted to select her own winner. She studied the bowl of names.

But she actually drew two names, so to be fair, we are giving gift certificates to both A Few Good Cats at It’s All Good and Tiki and Kirby!

Hooray for all the winners!

And as promised, Mom is making a donation to the Humane Society of the United States in our honor!

On our four birthday blog posts, we received a total of:

30 + 9 + 11 + 14 =

Umm …  Ahhh …

A really big number of comments!  So Mom will be making a donation to the HSUS of $A Really Big Number. What’s that Mom?

Mom said that she decided to round up to $100.00!  Thanks Mom!! The Humane Society will put our gift to good use “to protect not only America’s most beloved companion animals—dogs and cats—but also other pets, wildlife, farm animals, and animals in research” (from our Thank You from HSUS).

We received an award from Monty Graycat, so we will post about that next time! Thanks Monty!

And thanks again to all of you who helped make our first birthday so special!

You cats are VERY organized and talented! I think we’d just knock the bowl over, and the Orange Monster would run off with a mouthful of paper slips. Come to think of it, I think he’d try to eat the paper while it was being cut. And the scissors!

Happy Birthday again!

Panda and Caramel are clever kitties! They’re so good at picking out the names and not chew them up or something 😛

Azreen and I (I helped pose :D) made a gift for you for coming to our blog ^_^ It’s not much, but we do hope you’ll like it!!

What a fun contest! Sorry this comment is so late but I just realized your blog wasn’t in my “Following” list and I have been overlooking it! Anyway I am following you now (in a non-stalking way, of course). 🙂
