Thank you … Normal service …..!

 Just can’t resist a final look at this wonderful pic :)

Only a few hours left to cast your vote in Zee & Zoey’s Cat Ruler of the World Campaign for a Cause Contest. If you haven’t voted, please consider voting for Austin who is campaigning with his trusty sidekick, Nellie, for Freshfields Animal Rescue in the UK. It is the only rescue/shelter that is not in the USA and it is the only shelter that helps all animals that come to its sites. Click here to vote.

Austin, Nellie and I want to say a HUGE thank you to Deb Barnes of Zee & Zoey for the excellent idea and for hosting the campaign so well.

We also want to say thank you to our fellow cat-idates, Cheysuli, Sparkle, Brian, Katie and Odin for their energetic, enthusiastic and entertaining campaigns. All of them and the shelters they represent are worthy winners.

Most of all Austin wants to thank Nellie, who has been tireless in her campaigning and “managed” the  whole caboodle with style and panache …. and not to mention the wonderful pink Nelliemobile!

The results and winner will be announced on Tuesday September 18th 2012

As for myself (the one with thumbs and no brain) and Austin (the one with brain and no thumbs), we are off to put our paws up with some pals……

Normal service will be resumed as soon as we wake up!
