You did it! We are thrilled to have been nominated for not just one, but two categories in Dogtime Media’s 2012 Pettie Awards: Best Cat Blog and Best Overall Pet Blog! Thank you so much for your support – it means so much to know we have so many loyal readers and fans!
And now we need to ask for your support again: we need your votes! Please take a moment to vote for us. And when you’re done, please ask all your cat loving friends to vote for us, too!
You can vote once a day – voting closes July 31.
The easiest way to remember to vote once a day is to add a reminder to your computer, phone, e-mail, or calendar. Allegra, Ruby and I thank you for your support.
I would also like to congratulate all the other wonderful bloggers who were nominated for awards! I encourage you visit all of the blogs, and vote in the other categories, too. Since many of these bloggers are good friends, I couldn’t possibly recommend who to vote for.
Pettie winners will receive a $1000 donation to a shelter or rescue group of their choice. Deciding which shelter to choose was tough – there are so many deserving groups out there. After careful consideration, I decided that I will donate my prize money to Kitten Associates if I win. Winners will be announced during a virtual ceremony on September 12.
Kitten Associates is a Connecticut based group founded by my dear friend Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair, whose blog was also nominated for Best Cat Blog. I am in such awe of Robin’s huge heart and exceptional dedication to the welfare of all cats, which makes Kitten Associates a perfect choice to receive the other half of the prize money. Kitten Associates is dedicated to saving the lives of cats (and dogs, too!), supporting animal rescue organizations with powerful online marketing tools, and championing legislation for spay/neuter programs to end pet overpopulation.
