The final run up to the deciding vote!

My friends... I know I keep saying it, but I really do appreciate every single thing that you've all done to help me out, and I'm sorry to keep being such a pest about the contest. It's been an excellent fundraiser for the charities, with over $17,000 being raised so far.

I've been super lucky to get support from a brilliant local artist. She's taken her most beautiful piece out of her shop to offer it here to help me with my model dreams!


Featuring the cat Goddess, this is a truly stunning piece of jewelery.

I'm going to be running a draw to win this piece (you can see more of it here)

To enter the draw, just comment on this post that you've voted for me and that will earn you one entry into the draw. If you make a donation, you'll get ten entries into the draw. if you have voted or donated before of course you'll be entered in the draw for the pendant - just leave me a comment to remind me and I'll make sure you're entered. :)

Once again, 100% all donations are going to my charities - the SPCA and the Cats Protection League.

I'll be doing the draw on the 12 Aug, when the contest closes. To vote, please go here

(and now, we pause for a RUMBLE)

That's a really cool piece! We have to admit that we were torn between you and Mr. Sooty so we voted one vote for you and one vote for Sooty. Hmmmmm, I wonder if Momma can come up with one more e-mail address. . . . .

BTW - That is FANTASTIC how much monies has been raised!!

Diane said...

I voted for your fabulous Rumblepurr. What a beautiful piece of jewelry, I'd love to win it!

Sweet Praline said...

Hi Rumbles. Even though I just love the flat faced Sooty and Ewok, mom and I used all four of our email addresses to vote for you!!! Please enter me in the contest, I would love to win it for my mom. Good luck.

Simba said...

Dear Rumbles, my Mom and I have both voted for you using several email addresses, as well as Daddy and my sister. We donated a while back. It is wonderful how much money has been raised to help animals in need, so though we do hope you win the real benefit has already been accomplished, hasn't it? I will do a post about you in a few more days, to try to help pull in a few more votes near the end.

Caren Gittleman said...

I voted about a week or so ago...is it true that you can only vote once per email address?
If you can vote more please let me know! I hope you win!

The Island Cats said...

We voted for you with all the emails we got! We wish we had more!!

Huffle Mawson said...

Well of course I voted for you! I might see if mum will let me use some of her email addresses too.

Mr. Pip said...

I love Bastet! My mom and I have both voted. By popular demand, we are working on setting up an email for Rosie "da boss" cat. She is anxious to vote for you too!

Your pal, Pip

Cat said...

Hi Rumbles,

I created an email address especially for my blog, so I was able to cast a second vote for you. But I'm afraid that is all the addresses I have. You've done a great job helping to raise money for such a worthy cause! I hope you win :-)

The Paw Relations said...

Kea said...

We've voted 3 times for you and made a small donation ages ago...does that count?

Katnip Lounge said...

Hi Rumbles, we voted for you four times...we wish we could vote 400 times!

That is a lovely piece of jewelry, and it's fantastic how much money you have helped raise!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Well, we did donate a while back and voted for you and have a button up (though we also have one for Sooty because of the fairness thing). And that jewelry piece is gorgeous!

And hey, keep Misha in mind - he came in second and is doing great in the modeling biz - if for some reason you don't win (which we doubt will happen) you can still have a great career like he does!
