Thanks to your votes of support, I am a finalist in the Petties Category Best Blog Post for my fun and informative “Clawing Down Cat Myths!” I am honored. I can’t say I am humbled (being a cat and all), but I am honored!
I do want to mention that I am in especially good company this year — the other finalists in my category are all friends of mine. I have read their articles and they are all awesome! I think we are all winners already.
But only one of us will get a Petties statuette, and only one of us will get to donate $1000 to a rescue or shelter of our choice! As in years past, instead of choosing a rescue myself, I am going to ask you for your suggestions. Just tell me in the comments below which shelter you would like me to donate the money to, should I win. It has to be a 501(c)3 U.S. shelter because that’s the rule the Petties humans have set down.
I will take your suggestions until 11:59 PM Sunday, July 8 (Pacific Time), after which I will run a poll on my sidebar and you will get to vote. The shelter with the most votes at the end of the day July 31 will be the one I donate the Petties money to, if I win. But it gets better — since there is no guarantee that I’ll actually win, I will run a chipin for the rescue on my sidebar for the whole month of August! That way the rescue gets some attention and donations, no matter what!
So let’s get started! Comment below with the name of your favorite shelter or rescue (it can be a repeat of someone else’s — lots of us have the same favorites), and when you are done, click on the Petties badge below or in the sidebar and vote for me and your other favorite bloggers!
