Another quick update...

Thank you guys!!! I really appreciate all your help and votes!

So, in other news... Rumblemum says she's very sorry she's being so slack with visiting and proper blogging - there is a lot going on at the moment, and she'll return to normal very soon.

Just a quick note my friends, if you haven't voted yet (or have extra email addresses you can vote with) I'd sure appreciate your vote.

Day two update - Rumbles

My friends... I'm so excited to say... oh I can't even say it, let me show you!


Thanks to all my amazing friends out there, I'm in first place in the New Zealand Next Top Model contest!! There is still lots of time to vote, and I'm offering smoochies for every vote!

I really, from the bottom of my heart, appreciate everything that you guys have done to help  me.

In other news, I've found a way to keep my toesies warm...


I hope Rumblemum and Rumbledad don't want to eat this pizza, it's sure keeping me toasty!

RUMBLEvote!! - Rumblepurr

Hello my friends!!

Today is a very exciting day for me, it's the first day that you can vote for me for the New Zealand Next Top Cat model!

I can't write much, I've kidnapped Rumblemum's laptop *heh heh heh* but here is the link

http://topcatmodel.co.nz/finalist_rumblepurr.html

I've put up a button and the code, if anyone would like to add me to their blog? (thanks Simba, a brilliant idea!) I've got a widget on the left side of the blog.

Rumblemum made this button for me, let me know if you like it!

The day of FLUFFLEBUM - Inigo

My friends, it has been FAR too long. Rumbles this, Rumbles that... enough already!

I'm sure that some of you are wondering why Rumbles gets to do the Top Model contest rather than having me enter as well.

I've decided to hold out to see if someone out here will come up with a 'Survivor - All Cat' edition.

Think about it. I'm stranded on an island with lots of bugs to nom, big trees to climb, an ocean fulla fishies and the biggest sandbox ever! I'm a shoe in to win! (and no pesky little brother!!)

A boy can dream...

*sigh* But Rumblemum would miss me, and I know that if I wasn't here to supervise the tying of the shoelaces in the morning everything would just fall apart.

I can still dream I suppose.

Rumbles has asked if I could let you all know that the voting starts for him tomorrow morning. He's really hoping that you'll support his quest to become... NZ's Next Top Cat Model. There is only one vote per person, so if you wanted to vote for him that would be brilliant. He'll have the voting URL up tomorrow. This is the last phase of the contest, so we'll stop bugging you guys about it soon, thanks again to everyone that's helped out already.

Tomorrow will be Inigo, I promise! - Rumblemum

I just wanted to show the beautiful pendant of Rumbles that his friend Whskr made for me!

Isn't that amazing? Now I can have Rumbles at work with me!

This is another one of her pendants, I just love the little eyes on the flowers!


Her shop is here, she does super cute stuff! (it looks like there is a line at the bottom - that's just my shoddy photo taking skills, it's the reflection of the glaze)

Better be blogging about ME tomorrow
Rumblemum, or you sleep with one eye open

MIGHTY CHEERING - Rumbles

My friends!! I know I was going to let Inigo have some blog time, but Rumblemum has the flu and hasn't been keeping up our blog as she should...

I wanted to let you all know that I've made it through to the final round of the Next Top Cat Model contest!!! I was the third highest fundraiser thanks to all of you! I hope that you guys know how much I appreciate every single penny donated. I know it's hard times out there, and for some of you to donate $5 was the same as to donate $500 - I hope you know how touched I was at every single donation.. From the bottom of my heart I say thank you to every single person that gave.

The next phase will begin later this week, and it'll be for votes. You'll only get to vote once, so if you please could save a vote for me.. and I'll set up my kissing booth again for all voters!! Man-cats, I can give smoochies to your mummy's!

I sleep beside Rumblemum to keep her warm. Very important
when you're not feeling well.


I've been keeping a watchful eye on the Rumblemum. She's doing better today, but you never know when she may fall over and drop some tuna or something. Not letting her out of my sight.

OH! And I got the most BRILLIANT gift today!! My friend Whskr has made the Rumblemum an amazing pendant of MEEEEEEE!! It is so pretty, and now Rumblemum can have me close to her heart all the time! This is Whskr's etsy page, she's got all kinds of cool stuff, and she can make stuff on order (like pendants of MEEEEEEE)

Blown away - Rumbles

OMC!!! Someone has made an AMAZING donation, and I'm in first place on the leader board! I don't know who made the donation, but I hope they know how much it means to me (and to the kitties at my charities, SPCA and Cats Protection Society) Rumblemum was a little teary when she saw this morning.


And the EXTRA good news,I got SO many cuddles because Rumblemum was so happy and touched at every person that has donated or had a kind word to say for me.

Oh, and check this out!!! I have a BOOTIFUL sister!! We were separated at birth, but recently reunited! You can read more about it here...

Inigo is getting a bit grumpy I've been hogging the computer so much, he was chasing me around today. I better let him have the blog tomorrow...

My ad for SPCA cat food - Rumblepurr

LOVE this challenge! Got a bag fulla NOMs, and I have to sell em! 



Yeaaaaahhh... I'd buy that.

So the contest is heading into the final stretch this weekend!! The top five fundraisers will go on to the next phase of the contest (the voting phase) and the judges will also pick five kitties to go on to the next round.

At the moment I'm third highest in donations thanks to all of you -  see the top six kitty fundraisers here. My paws are crossed that I make it through to the next round!

Thank you to everyone that's donated. So far the contest has raised $12,571.48 for charity - an AMAZING amount for all the poor kitties that haven't found their forever home yet, and that total has already surpassed the amount they raised last year!

The next phase is the voting phase - you'll be able to give your choice for the top kitty. Each person is only allowed one vote, and there are TEN bootiful kitties... very exciting!

Walk THIS way! - Rumbles

The latest challenge for the Next Top Cat Model was to show our strut!

Due to the slackness of the Rumblemum (she thought it was due Tuesday) my video was not eligible... but I still think it helps show off my Rumble-y walk!

MANcat Monday : special guest edition - Rumblepurr

I'd like to introduce my handsome buddy, Sooty Meow. Sooty is one of the competitors in the NZ Next Top Model.



Sooty has just started his own blog, and it is brilliant! His clever mummy is a graphic designer, and she's made a Sooty logo and everything!



If you have a chance, please visit his blog and say hi. He's a super nice fella, and almost as handsome as ME!


I've got to do the draw for the gift certificate for $30 at Nip and Bones! Many thanks to everyone that entered, and also a big thank you to you all for putting up with all my talk of the contest. 

And the winner is....


Congrats my friends!

A BOOTIFUL ladycat...

Hi guys... just a quick one today. If anyone hasn't heard about Little Meow, head on over to Daily Cute and read more about her.

She really is lovely, if anyone knows of a good home. We've tried convincing the Rumblemum but she says no (spoil sport) something about it being a super long plane ride.

Me and my fat duck - Rumbles

Ok, so maybe I'm hogging the blog a little... but I've had such cool adventures!!

And I've made a new friend!! He is sooooo soft and floofy, and he loves it when I bunny kick him. Inigo is not a fan of fat duck.

So now I need some names... any suggestions?

I got a secret for you duck..if we sit here looking
cute long enough, we'll get some treats!
Heyyyy what do duckies eat anyhow?


We better figure out your noms quick, I
see Inigo down there!!

Behold! My empire! - Rumbles

I love to sit and look out at my city. All my potential servants, bustling about to make my life more pleasant...
I think I see a tuna over there..
A different view...
Hmmm... I think I see a bird up there!
