Furball Friday

Today is National Hairball Awareness Day and it is also the day when the winner of the 'Who's Your Favorite Furball?' contest will be announced! I will ask Mommy to update the post at noon (done!) and you can check for the winner on Friday at noon EST on Romeo's blog.

The winner is: Madison and her staff, Cindy! Congratulations!

We wanted to thank Romeo for involving us in this contest and for working to raise money for Kitten Rescue (and all the other charities he's involved with)! He is a wonderful guy and he certainly is something to aspire to. Big kudos to you, Romeo (and of course your Mommy)!




On a superficial note, I lost my bout in the Kitty Fight Club to the lovely Tama-Chan. It was pretty close and then suddenly Tama-Chan went up almost 100 votes! Mommy recruited for voters here on the blog and posted on her Facebook, MySpace (she was even tempted to join Twitter but decided against it) and got a lot of help from her buddies on the Stuff For My Pet Forum (Mommy says thanks a bunch to dogdaze and JK!) but I realized I was a goner when Misha canvassed on Twitter to save his girlfriend . I suppose I'd do the same if some devilishly handsome Mankitten was after my Delilah (although she's pretty tough and could probably handle herself). I was worried about going up against Sweet Praline, anyway. She's a gorgeous, fluffy Tortie and you all know how I feel about gorgeous, fluffy Torties. I'd be tempted to do the honorable thing and bow out to her cuteness.

I want to thank everyone who voted for me because I had a lot of fun. Somehow there are 265 of you who think I'm cute and that does wonders for my ego (don't tell Delilah because she might give me that terrifying 'look' again). Apparently I'm getting a surprise from Mommy for being so darn cute next week! She won't tell me what it is but I'll let you all know when I find out. I'm hoping for a real live mousie! (I know that isn't going to happen but a dude can dream, can't he?)


Have a great weekend!

Poor Tama-Chan was getting so depressed that she was losing. My tweet didn't help her much, but she canvassed (grovelled) for votes really hard in the last day. It was great to see you two both fighting so fiercely!

If she was going to lose, it might as well be to someone as adorable as you!

Anyways, I need a bit of a lie down after all the excitement. Some of those matches were so close! Just waiting for Cosmo to sick up a furball for Hairball Awareness Day...

Sorry to hear you didn't win, man. That stinks. But you'll win next time, right?

As far as being patient goes, I try. But Mom makes it hard sometime. Hey, she says I should thank you for reading my blog. So thanks!

BYE!

Hmm. I wonder why Tommy didn't enter us....did we not have long enough fur? I'll give her a furball.

Congrats nonethless, Samson!
