    Thanks for posting this – I was confused with Petfinder’s instructions–I thought they just wanted all bloggers to post a Petfinder bio on the 15th. You you really clarified it for me. Count LAPCATS in – I’ve already posted the banner, and I’m recruiting my co-volunteers now!

    This looks like fun. We will have to do this. If only I had a better sense of humor to put on a picture. Oh well, all we can do is try. I would love to win that vacuum. Thanks so much for telling us about it. Have a great day.
