As many of you know, I’m a finalist for the Best Cat Blog category in the Petties! And as some you know, voting was closed for several days when they discovered that a server glitch messed up the list. The good news is that some finalists who saw old blog posts or videos listed now have the right ones up on the Petties Finalist page. The bad news is that some of the supposed finalists weren’t finalists at all, or wound up as finalists in a different category. I know how disappointed and upset they are — I would be too.
I am fortunate this year in that not only am I still a Best Cat Blog finalist, but the other blogs I am up against have readerships that don’t overlap a whole lot with me. That’s nice, considering that my human is friends with two of the bloggers and I am an admirer of all three of them! We all have our own raving fans whose votes we can depend on, and I am sure those who read some or all of these blogs will wind up voting differently every day. Of course, the other blogs all have a larger readership than me, so I am counting on my raving fans to be more diligent about voting for me every day between now and August 7!
Click where it says Finalist Voting, then log in with your Twitter, Facebook or email to vote! Like I mentioned, you can vote every day, and the winner in each category gets to have $1000 donated to a rescue of their choice — or in my case, if I win, a rescue of your choice! And the rescue you choose will get some sort of donation, no matter what!
Let me explain how this is going to work: I want you all to comment below with the name of a U.S. 501(c)3 rescue that you like (don’t cop out and say I should choose — I really want you to pick!). On Monday night, I will randomly pick five of those rescues and from Tuesday, July 15 through Sunday, July 20, you will get to vote for your favorite among the five! The rescue with the most votes will be the one I name if I win in my category of the Petties. But it gets even better — Monday, July 21 is my human’s birthday, and I’ll be having a commenthon that day to benefit the same rescue! That way, they get a donation whether I win or not!
Sound good? Name your favorite rescue below!
