Guess what, efurrybody? Colby is so famous for bein' the escapin' cat now (read the post below if you don't know the story), that the nice PetCam beans gave Mom FIVE PetCams to give away to our furriends!
Now, of course, you will have to be extra-smart kittehs to avoid detection if your beans win, but on the bright side, they will be so thankful when they DO win that they will probably just drown you in treats!
Oh, and woofies can win for their beans, too!
Just enter here on Mom's blog by leaving a comment with one of our names: "Cheddar" or "Fancy" to win a PetCam! (Mom figures Colby is famous enough now.) Remember, she has FIVE to give away, so dat's pretty good odds, Mom says. Please make sure you have a shipping address in the US if you enter, since they are nice enough to ship them for Mom.

So, furriends, it's me, Colby. I needs ur help!
I have been *looks around furtively* sneakin' outside. How? I'm glad you asked.
Mom and Dad have a hole in the screened-in porch place!
I snuck out, and Mom brought me back in, and found the hole and covered it up.
Now, as you know, I am furry smart *preens*. So, even though they covered up the hole, I found a way out, by pushin' the covering-up stuff aside.
And Mom brought me back in, all grumblin', and made it harder, but I kept finding ways out.
So they put heavier stuff in front of the hole, and on the outside where the hole was, too, and it was LOT harder, but I ran all the way across the porch and did a body-slam into the heavy stuff, and pushed it away, too. 'Cause I'm smart AND strong.
But *sigh*, Mom Saw me.
And when they brought ME back in, Fancy, who is pretty smart, too, sneaked out!
And you know what? Beans don't see so good at night. They go stumblin' around. Isn't that weird?
They searched for Fancy lots and got scared, because this is her new home and Mom worried she would get lost and not know her way back. But Fancy came back, and Mom was happy.
Dad couldn't fix the hole, because he's been painting since we were getting Car Pets. And Mom and Dad wanted the door to the screened porch open when the Car Pet guys were putting in carpet, so they could move the furniture and stuff. So I could get out, but Mom and Dad got really tough, and when I did, Dad, who was getting mad because I am so smart, would put me in the little shallow pool and get my feets wet!
I did NOT like that!
I think they wanted to keep me from going out, but I just made sure I hid better so when I DID get out, they couldn't find me so well.
Mom put a collar on me wif my name and our phone number, which I hate because it has a tinkly bell thing, so I can't hunt like a Mancat.
I has all my yucky shots and stuff, so Dad says Mom should stop worrying, but Mom still does, and wants the porch fixed because she thinks I'll get eaten by a Woofy or sumfin'.
She's like that.
So, all this week, it's been me tryin' to be sneaky and get out, and Mom watching me like a hawk and not letting me have any fun.
But then! Mom got sneaky! Yes, Mom. Moms aren't supposed to be sneaky!
You know what she did? She let me go out on the porch again, BUT she put some strange thing called a PetCam around my neck! Only for a little while, but it got in my way when I went out (of COURSE I got out!).
I came back through the hole myself, and pretended I had been a goody -goody cat and not gone anywhere. And Mom took the Pet Cam off.
Anyway, once she took it off, I figured I was in the clear. Only the thing is...
Mom knows I went out! And, horror of horrors, she knows my bestest hiding places!
Because the PetCam TOOK INCRIMINATING PICTURES!
See, here in the first two pics, I'm pretending to be good, on the screened porch with Cheddar, who never escapes (I think he's just too skeered).
And then here I am running around, you know, hidin' in the grass. You can see our neighbor's houses and the trash cans and stuff.
So now what should I do?!
Mom knows where I hide, and she won't let me out without my collar, and I don't want to wear the Pet Cam thing around my neck because everyone will know where I go!

Dis is Mom's review of a movie starring a woofie named Beethoven. We finks now dey need to make a kitteh movie dat stars US. Fancy could be a ninja, cause she's black, and Colby and I could be the Good Guys dat fight her. Only not really, cause she's kinda tough, and her claws are really sharp!--Cheddar.
Set to release on DVD the day after Christmas, the big mutt that's charmed dog lovers since he first hit the screen returns in Beethoven's Big Break, a new offering available exclusively on DVD from Universal Studios.
This charming flick is delightfully engaging. Animal lover though I am, I was surprised to find myself buying into it completely, and really enjoying the movie from start to finish.
Starring comedian Jonathan Silverman as stressed-out single Dad Eddie, working in Hollywood as an animal handler, Moises Arias (Rico on “Hannah Montana”) as his son Billy, and Daytime Emmy® winner Jennifer Finnigan (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) as a sweet, befuddled script writer on the new animal film who's thrown together with the duo through a series of unlikely events, Beethoven's Big Break also features the music of popular musical artists your kids will love, like the Jonas Brothers, Rhianna, High City Miles and Everlife.
The rambunctious romp sports a supporting cast parents will recognize from other favorite features, too--Rhea Perlman (“Cheers”), Joey Fatone (“Dancing with the Stars,” ‘N Sync), Stephen Tobolowsky (“Heroes”), Oscar Nunez (“The Office”), Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother) and Cesar Millan (“The Dog Whisperer”) in his feature film debut.
But honestly? My favorite supporting member is the newly-introduced (but sure to to become a mega-star after his debut) Pete The Lizard. Love that lizard.
And don't even get me started on the plus-one-million cuteness factor of Beethoven's puppy co-stars, pictured to the right.
The plot of Beethoven's Big Break is simple: Although animal handler Eddie (Silverman) works with lots of creatures, he has a strict NO PETS ALLOWED policy at home (which is a little counter-intuitive until we learn a secret from his past that Explains All).
Well, as I'm sure you can guess, that policy doesn't last. Though Eddie resists letting his son Billy keep adorable stray dog Beethoven and his family of puppies (who could resist these puppies?!), when the star of the animal film Eddie is working on goes missing, Beethoven jumps in with all four big paws, and Eddie is forced to accept him AND his puppies into their home ( I like the moment when his son, Billy, in a smooth maneuver, points out that Beethoven is a single dad just like Eddie. Nice move!).
Naturally, through his typically rambunctious antics and larger-than-life personality, Beethoven not only crashes into Hollywood but into Eddie’s heart as well.
Beethoven's Big Break is full of more of that over-the-top physical humor kids love, and of course Beethoven is just plain lovable as the shaggy mutt that charms a single Dad.
Featuring lots of great bonus materials, like deleted scenes and a gag reel over ten minutes long that makes me appreciate Silverman's improv (and his co-stars' patience) all the more, Beethoven's Big Break, available exclusively on DVD December 26th, is priced at just $29.98.
Cool Mom tip: Kids can visit kids.yahoo.com/Beethoven for a FREE coloring page of Beethoven and those adorable puppies to download, print and color at home!
P.S. Here's how the smart woofie teaches the little bean wot his name is!--Colby

If you is in America, and you would like a Kris Moose card from US, the Cheezits, new and improved with Fancy cat, please leave your shipping address in an email at our gmaily account thingy, kay?
Here's da address (u haf to shrinkify it):

Fanks! We would love to send cards to our furriends!
We would like to send dem overseas cards, and we is working on sum, but we fink maybe it is too late to ask you guys. Our silly Mom has been busy and was too lazy to post dis!
Monday, December 1, 2008
Mom has been very busy and stressin' out and stuff on account of da Badderee on the Dad's big moving machine broke down TWICE when da Dad was across the country (Mom says he shoulda fixed it da first time!), and now we is getting some new carpets.
So I said to my bruvver dat I don't like da idea of new pets anywheres around--I just got used to dat Fancy cat!--but if day wanna go in the car instead of us, maybe dese carpets wouldn't be so bad.
And you know what? He says carpets are just big rugs! So dat's new stuff to scratch. Dat's much better than new strange kitties riding around in cars wif Mom!
And da Dad was movin' all da big furnitures around, and paintin' stuff, and we had to be careful and stay on da porch so our furs wouldn't get whited from the paint. (I finks Fancy would look cool wif a white stripe down her back, like a skunk, but she wasn't goin' for it.)
So, anyways, lots of dis stress stuff at our house, and den we gets a Kris Mouse card! Us! Da kitties!
Mom says SHE hasn't even gotten any Kris Moose cards yet, but we has. *preens*
Furriends is furry good for gettin' rid of stress, aren't dey?
Fanks, Eric and Flynn!
We LOVES our Kris Moose card.
It has ur pikshur right on it. Dat's furry cool. Yay!

Okay, we has to pick 7 blogs, so here goes:

2. Kilroy the Love Beastie, cause Colby and Cheddar are watching him closely for mancat tips.
3. Derby the Sassy Cat, who just had a burfday, 'cause Fancy is all growed up, too, and she needs lady furiends.
4. The cute little guys at The Daily Kitten.
5. Bwog of the genius cat, who is always gettin' blamed for sumfin.
6. Captain Jack, and Dante, The purrageous pirates, and their furry busy Mommy.

We are going to have Fancy put on her new collar AND her wings so she can model them for pikshurs!
Please check out the Cat's Meow, 'cause Mr. Skeezix is also a furry funny and smart kitty and he has lots of good stuff posted there!
Right now, I'm going to go be nice to Fancy to see if she can win me sumfin'. ;)
Monday, October 20, 2008

Mom obviously knows who has da best tocks around these parts!
As you can see, I am a furry athletic kitty and my tocks are firm and lean!
Right? Don't furget that I will be a mancat soon!
Sunday, October 19, 2008
Okay, dat's kinda hard to do, so I'll tell you!
I WON a contest! Woohoo!
My bruvvers entered me into a contest over at Everything Up Close, look what dey said:
“Oh HAI! Dat cool pink collar with the black skulls would look BOOtiful on our sister kitty, Fancy! She's a black cat and she needs a new collar for Halloween. We hopes we win!"
Isn't dat nice? And I won da collar from Miss Moustache! So I will be a furry fashionable, pretty girl for Halloween.
And you know what? Dis PROVES dat black cats are good luck, not bad! So dere!
I thinks you should all go over there to Everything Up Close and see if you can wins stuff, too, cause dey have LOTS of giveaways over dere. Dere givin' away necklaces and stuff, and dey list other bean's contests, too!
Dey even have a brand new contest dat just started, where da Moms can win an apron to wear when dey are whippin' up kitteh feasts!
Once I get my new collar, I'll make Mom takes a pikshur of it so's you can all see what it looks like, okay?
Fanks to my bruvvers, for entering me, and fanks to Everything Up Close for havin' such a cool contest!
Sunday, October 12, 2008
The wonderful folks at Zoolatry maded these for us for Halloween! Aren't dey Bootiful? Heehee, get it, BOOtiful? Dat's a little Halloween humor for ya, right dere!
Saturday, October 11, 2008
The beans aren't sick any more, yay!
Dat means we gots a new toy, too. Mom finally put it together wif da help of da youngest bean. Here I am, checking it out.
I's also been furry busy helpin' Mom wif all her Halloween stuff.
Dis is called a pumpkin. It looks like it would be good to eat, but dis one isn't, know why? Cause it's fake! Mom says it is called a Funkin.
Mom's going to carve it into a Jack O' Lantern. This Funkin is for carvin' and keepin', instead of carvin' and throwin' away. Da real pumpkins, dey get rotten really fast down here in Florida. I smelleded it and it doesn't smell real, either.
Dat Fancy kitty has been helpin' Mom too. Turns out that Fancy is akshully pretty cool!
She play-fights wif Colby and doesn't put the bitey on him, and dat means I don't get the bitey put on ME when Colby wants to play-fight. And today, when we spilled all our food (which is NOT my fault, Colby snuck up on me and I ranned into it and it just went flyin'!), she went in an mewed at Mom until Mom came out and saw our dish was empty and fixed it all up for us. Dat was pretty smart of Fancy!
Mom says black cats are furry good for Halloween, cause some beans are Super Stitch Us, whatever dat means, and fink black cats are all spooky and bad luck!
Dat's silly, Fancy has just been good luck fur us.
Here's a pikshur of me checkin' out Mom's party invitations for da little beans' Halloween party, and some waxy candle fings and black roses and a styrofoam tombstone she gots. Dey's for decorashuns at Da party. See how I'm being a good watch cat and keepin' the house safe?
Usually, dat's Colby's job but he was on da porch, climbin' the screens and gettin' snails. Dad said, "Bad cat!" at him for dat, but Colby was just tryin' to keep the house safe!
Mom says I am da cute floofy kitteh for photos and cuddlin', and Colby is the speshul attack cat for gettin' stuff like lizards, and Fancy is the emergency back-up girl kitteh dat even likes gettin' petted. cause Mom needs more girls wif all us boy kittehs around!
Monday, September 29, 2008
Oh, Hai! Dis is me, in bed. Don't worry, I'm fine. But Efurrybody else here is sick! So I'm thinkin' I might just stay here and be safe.
First it was Fancy, our new black kitteh, who had the sneezes and stuff, and then the boy beans got sick from somebody called "SKEWL." I don't know who skewl is, but he must be really bad, because efurryday the boy beans has to go away to see skewl, and when dey come back they sure are really happy to be home again and away from skewl! Plus, skewl must be furry lazy, cause the boy beans has to do his stuff all the time--they are always saying they have to do "skewl work"! And now dis skewl fellow has gots them sick!
And then even Mom got the sicks from the boy beans, and she goes, "cough cough cough," like she's going to have a hairball. Good thing Dad's home now and can help all the sick beans!
At least dat Fancy girl kitteh is all better now. We kinda sorta get along, but I'm keeping an eye on her, just in case! For instance, she knows dat the window wif the sunbeams in the afternoon is my speshul place, so she's has to find sumwhere else!
Here's her looking all better 'n stuff. She likes to sit wif the beans and get all petted, which is different from me and Colby, but maybe dat's cause she's a girl kitteh.
Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Efurrybody has been so creative, we wanted to be too! So we went to Wordle and made this! It's a pikshur of da words we use most here on the Cheezits. You can make one if you want. You can do different colors and make the words go up and down or across. Try it out!
Monday, September 22, 2008
Hey, dis is Fancy again! Guess what? I started feeling hungry, so I decided to try to eat a little. And then I got hungrier, and ate a little more.
Yay! I can eat now!
P.S. Dose boys don't growls and hissy at me much any more, unless we gets real real close to each other and they don't expects it. I'm black, so I fade in and sumtimes they don't know I'm dere until all of the sudden. When dat happens, Colby will still swat at me, like he's a big scary mancat. But now, I bat right back at him!
Thanx for worryin' bout me, efurrybody!
Sunday, September 21, 2008
Yawn. Oh, Hai! I was just takin' a nap. I has some news, though!
That black kitteh's name is Fancy, and she's been real sick. Mom had to take her to the V.E.T yesterday. You wanna know sumfin' else? We had to go to the V.E.T too, and we weren't even sick! Dat's not fair. We had to get shots, but we were brave mancats and didn't make a fuss, or anyway Cheddar didn't. I howled and tried to get away from, I mean tried to attack the V.E.T people, just to give 'em what for!
Anyway, we went to the V.E.T a different day than Fancy cause we are not sick and she is. She won't eat, and Mom was worrit. So, anyways, the V.E.T. gave Fancy sub Q tane EE uz fluids (dat's like water under the skin, ewww) and gots her shots up-to-date, too, and then gave Mom a Pill Popper gun thing, 'cause even the vet couldn't get Fancy to take the icky liquid medicine stuff! Dat's a neat trick. She has to show us how she keeps her mouth closed. I want to know how she can spit pills out really far, too! Mom said some bad words the first time Fancy did that! But she got Fancy to swallow one next time, so Mom's not so sad and stressed out now.
That black Fancy kitteh sure seems to be feelin' a lot better, too. Dose liquids helped a lot. Mom put a huge-midi-fyer in her room to help her breathe through her stuffed-up nose. She still won't eat, but dat's good 'cause we get the food she doesn't want, and Mom is tryin' lots of stinky goodness stuff! Nom nom nom. Mom even tried salmon and left-over steak from the beans' trip to the restaurant. I guess Fancy just won't eat 'til she's betterer than she is now. The V.E.T said to give it a couple days and see. Fancy's drinkin' water, tho, and she purrs a lot and she even lets the beans pet her ALL the time, which is just suckin' up if you ask me.
Anyway, I fink maybe she is startin' to unnerstand dat WE are da mancats and she has to respeckt us and stuff. I chased her and stuff and she doesn't even hiss back. And she was pretty tough with the V.E.T. So, you know, she's not DAT terrible.
Oh, and Mom says THANK YOU to all the wunnerful kittehs and their Moms and Dads dat gave us advice! We are gettin' along a little better now, specially since that sock thing! We has to sleep and eat in different places, though, cause she is sick.
P.S. I want to say thanks too! The bruvvers aren't quite so mean and scary at me now!--Fancy
Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Um...hi, efurrybody. I'm Fancy. I'm the new kitty over here at the Cheezits.
I'm really not a bad kitteh, I promise! I just need a new home.
See, I had a home, and then my 'family'...well, they moved. Without me and my brother. They just left us at the shelter. *sigh* And then, my bruvver got 'dopted, but I didn't, and I was by msyelf.
But when the Cheezits' Mom saw me, she said, "You need bruvvers. I know some bruvvers dat need a sister, too!" So she took me home wif her, and I'm very grateful.
Cause I even hab a head cold right now, and by nose is stuffed ub, and I have to take the icky medicine, and I was feeling kinda down all by myself, all sick and missing my bruvver and stuff. I was really lonely. So I'm real happy to have a new home! And I been tryin' real hard to make furriends wif the Cheezits.
Except I don't think the Cheezits want me here furry much. I hasn't even growled at them, but boy have they growled and hissed at me! And Colby even swatted at me a couple times. I'm trying to keep my cool and let them know that I don't want to make trouble, but it's hard! So, if you have any advice for me and Mom and the Cheezits, dat would be great!
Oh, and I know's you are the Cheezits' furiends, but could you maybe please be my furiend, too? I could sure use some.
Tuesday, September 16, 2008
Dis is me, Cheddar. Sumfin's happened, and I don't like it one bit!
Let me get myself togedder here. Deep breath.
So, here's what's going on. Mom went to take the check for the Pet Rescue Raffle fundraiser you all helped us with to the shelter.
We raiseded $151.82 green papers for the shelter, btw. Is dat good? Well, Mom says every little bit helps, and the shelter was furry glad to get the green papers! She says dey are furry happy wif us.
So, anyway, she came back, of course, and she had a big box o'sumfin.
And den she took the big box o'sumfin out on the screened porch.
And you know what I fink? I fink it must have been a cat in the box!
Cause now dere's a strange cat out there! She's all black, with green eyes. And she's all growed up, too, older dan me and Colby.
She's kinda pretty, actually--but she is ON MY PORCH!
Dis is capital-N Not good, furiends! What should we do?
Colby is just curious 'bout her, looking out the window, but I am scareded!
Wot does this mean?!
I am NOT happy with Mom right now!

We has some furry wonderful furriends! While we was working on the raffle (Okay, Mom was working and we were sleepin' and eatin' and chasing lizards), they gave us not one but TWO awards!
We just don't know what to say. We're speechless!
First, we gots the brillante award from TWO different kitty bloggers, which is a furry prestigious and distinctive award. We was nominated by Thomas, Phoebe and Trixie and The Taylor Cats! We preened and groomed for quite awhile after we heard that, making sure we looked our best, because we didn't want to let anyone down nows that we are famous kittehs.
Here is the brillante award, look how shiny it is!
Then, we gots another award just today, from the wunnerful kittehs Chica and Pumuckl, who are Egyptian cats in Germany and so maybe I guess they are...heee heee...wait for it...furriegn kittehs! Ha ha ha, we crack ourselves up. Anyways, These fantastic furries gave us an "I love your cats" award! Isn't that great?
Here it is over here, and it has cats hugging, like we do when we aren't whappin' each other!
Needless to say, we are furry proud to have won both of these awards, and we's going to put them on the sidebar.
If you haven't seen the cool Awards Shelf that Chica and Pumuckl's bean made for their awards, btw, you should go over there and check it out, because it is a furry neat idea.
We are allowed to nominate seven furriends for each of these awards, and that's a LOT of furriends. We tried counting and we had to go to three whole paws to figure out that would be fourteen kittehs! But then we also thought maybe we would nominate the same seven kittehs for BOTH awards, because all of our furriends really deserve both.
So, we is nominating:
Daisy, the Curly Cat, who is really just one cat but has Mr. Snail and Mr. Shrill and her pet rock, so she can still get the "I love your cats" award, right?
The Island Cats, because we really do think every kitteh wants to be an island cat.
The kittehs at Artsy Catsy, cause they work hard.
The Whiskers and Purrs kittehs wif the cool names.
The furry manly mancats Eric and Flynn.
Beau Beau and Angie--someone please fill up that food bowl!
And finally, last but not least, The Meezers, cause they have been furry smart and added a ginger!
Concatulations to all our furry wonderful kitteh furriends!
We is furry excited! We had Mom line up all the prizes for the Pet Rescue Raffle, and then we checked them all to make sure they are ready to go!
Ruh roh. Dat was a lot of excitement for kittehs to handle, all that cool stuff. Cheddar disappeared somewhere to take a nap. I, Colby, was responsible and stuck around to help Mom out, but I have to admit I ..ahem..fell asleep, too. BUT! Mom woke me up, and here I am picking the winner!
And, just so you all know who datNumber 30 is, the winner is:
Amy C. from Ohio!
ConCATulations, Amy! And you know what? That's Mr. Hendrix's bean! Yay, Hendrix!

I needs the Daddy. I am in a whappin' mood, and he always likes to play ruf (at least until I puts the bitey on his hand).
Here's a pikshur of me and the Daddy playin' together.
Lots of times, it's Cheddar who is the jumpy, racin' around, tail-on-fire kitteh.
Usually, I like to curl up and just, you know, show off my floofiness and stuff. Colby can make fun all he wants, cause you know whats?
Sometimes I get treats for doing stuff like that! Da beans say, "Awww, look at Cheddar, he's bein' so cute!"
And then I get treats. Course, they give them to Colby, too, cause he comes over and makes nice when they're treats around!
So, anyway, that's how it goes, usually.
But today I am in a bitey, whappin' mood!
I don't know why.
I fink I will go party wif some of my kitteh friends that know how to play.
Off to the Bad Kitteh Carnival of Chaos!
Rain, rain, rain. We is getting LOTS of rain and clouds from the big storm, Hanna.
It makes me, Colby, furry sleepy.
I was all stretched out and comfy on Mom's bed.
But then big ol' Cheddar came in and wanted to play.
I was just sleepin' and he bited me! Then he was whappin' at me and wouldn't let me alone.
He tried to eat Mom's laptop cord and chew the buttons off of her sweater.
She played wif him awhile, but she is tryin' to put our posts on the blog for us, and then she has her ovur blogs, so she had to get back to work.
But Cheddar kept puttin' the bitey on me and wouldn't let me rest, so Mom picked him up and put his floofy self by the window so's he could see the lizards and the rain.
Now I can nap again!

Here are the randomly-picked winners of extra copies (generously donated by our sponsors!) of "My Buddy Butch" and "Rabbits: Gentle Hearts, Valiant Spirits".
First, here's how this worked, for those that are interested in this sort of thing:
Each donation was given numbers matching how many tickets were bought in the order in which they were donated, as so: Donor #1 donating $10.00 would get SIX raffle tickets (remember, buy five get one free!), So numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 were assigned to his/her name. Donor #2 donated 2.00 and had number 7 assigned to his/her name, etc. The numbers were then fed into the Random Integer Generator.
Remember, the big Prize Package is still up for grabs, and that winner will be chosen randomly by the Cheezits themselves, on video! They've been very good and kept to their promise not to accept bribes of cat toys and kitty treats, especially since they can't read anyway and have no clue what the raffle ticket numbers mean! ;)
So, without further ado, the winners of the books chosen by the Random Integer Generator are:
Numbers 79, 54 and 12! And those winners are Karen A., Jacqueline A., and Deb T.!
Hooray! I'll be getting your books out to you in tomorrow's mail. I will ship them media mail where possible, so please do give them a little while to get to you!
Monday, September 1, 2008
We have lots of Raffle news today!
First of all, Mom would like to thank all of you who have donated! And so do we! We really appreciate the time and the effort, not to matter the green papers you've given!
Next, Mom now has ALL the raffle prizes in the prize package in hand (some of them took a while to arrive. Delivery has been slower than usual, prob'ly because of all the storms round here lately!).
Mom also has Pet Rescue Raffle fliers printed and ready to go to the local pet shops, as of last Thursday. But she had to fly out of town and couldn't get them to the pet shops then! She was in Seattle until yesterday, visiting our cousin kitteh cats Mira and Rose and our woofie cousin Calvin.
Mom debated whether she should give up on the fliers so that the raffle would end on schedule, but she really thinks that extending the raffle a few more days instead may mean more beans will buy tickets for the big prize package, which means more green papers for the woofies and the kittehs and the buns and the hampsters and everyone!
So, the Pet Rescue Raffle will has been extended! The closing date for donations is now: Friday, September 5th. Everybody got that? So there is still time to donate and get chances to win!
But REMEMBER! Friday, September the 5th is the absolute last day of the Pet Rescue Raffle! That means your last chance to enter and win is coming up fast!
Please help get the word out there to all the animal lovers you know!
Thanks for helpin' us!
