Runners Up

We didn't win Eric & Flynn's contest for cute cats. Close but no nip cigar. 

The big winner's in Eric & Flynn's contest will be the shelter that gets all of the litter from Verdo for the next year.

We lost out to Punapippuri those wonderful cats of the north, way up in Finlandia!

They chose a no kill shelter in the UK called, The Moggery, to get the litter supply. Well done!

Here is Punapippuri's entry.

Waffles Too, over at Glogirly won the US side, getting a gift certificate. That kitten has promise.

We submitted an outtake from our header shot, snoozing in peace on the back of the couch.

But do you notice what is in common with the top vote getters? Yep, gingerness. Hard to beat us gingers! We gingers rock.

We agree about Gingers! We have to say that though we loved Punapippuri's picture and we love their blog, we did vote for you. That is one super cute picture of you both.

Well... there was some pretty stiff competition there. But I still think you're super-duper cute. And yes! All gingers just like my marmalade brothers Seville and Rushton! Neat!!!

You've just gotta check out my most recent blog post, "Golden Globes... who needs 'em?" 'cause there's a special little somethin' waitin' for you there.

Gingers rule! It is proven beyond doubt. Commiserations on being runners up - but the main thing is the litter goes to a great cause.

The Woman says as much as she loves Meezes, she does have a soft spot for ginger boys.
