Wahoooooo!!!

We've got $1,760 in donations now for the NZ Next Top Cat Model contest!

Rumblemum has been holding bake sales at her work every week, offering home baked cookies and cupcakes... she wasn't sure how much she'd raised (because there were a LOT of coins!) but on final count, it was a little over $400! (and so far nobody has sued her for giving them food poisoning, so that's a good thing too!)

This  makes us the top fundraiser so far in the contest! This is thanks to you, all my friends in the blogosphere that have donated and retweeted and blogged about us.

The whole contest has done very well (this should put the total at over $18,000 for all the kitties put together) and we're so proud of everyone that has entered. Everyone has worked SO hard and been such good sports.


Look ma! I'm in the paper!!
I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your patience, kind words, donations and support. It's nice to finally be in the home stretch of this contest!!

And a very special thank you goes out to our friends Dash Kitten and Whskr - they've spent so much time on promoting us and drumming up interest... we're very lucky to know them.

Wow! That is a fantastic amount raised to help other kittie4s down on their luck.

You look great in the paper Rumbles!

Your mum--and all the other contestant mums we're sure--has put in a tremendous amount of work for this, and really needs to be commended for her efforts and fundraising. Everyone is a winner in our books, but the most important thing, in our opinion, is that so many cats will be helped! The media attention is a real bonus, too, to raise awareness. At least we hope so!

That is just amazing, proof that just one person or puss can make a big diffrence.

That is so fabulous that you are the top fundraiser, and that the contest has raised nearly $20,000 so far. I bet it goes over $20,000. How fabulous for kitties and doggies in need at the shelters, and also for raising awareness of their plight.

The newspaper article is awesome.

Rumblemum, you are awesome!
