Staycation Day 4 - The Petties!
Hi everyone, Katie here.
Welcome to Day 4 of my staycation. Still no Glogirly. No Gloman either. Only the smelly cat sitter and the doorbell-ringing UPS man. Today I want to talk about petties.
Do you know what a Pettie is? Well it's much, much more than what Glogirly tries to do to me every chance she gets. It's Dogtime Media's biggest and most prestigious awards for excellence in pet blogging. Now don't go holding Dogtime's name against them...they just know that us cats are confident and don't need everything named after us like dogs do.
Nominations are NOW OPEN and we'd love for you to vote for us and your other blogging furriends in a "Pre-Pettie Contest" which will award $10,000 to a non-profit 501c3 shelter like our special friends at PAWS in Norwalk, CT and Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of Saint Pauls, NC. The $10,000 prize will be awarded on July 19 (Hey! that's Glogirly's birthday!)
Nominations will be accepted until June 29 and you can vote once a day until then at the Petties Nominations Center. You can nominate your favorite pet blogs in a variety of categories AND you can nominate a non-profit 501c3 shelter or rescue group(s) of your choice.
Winning bloggers in each of the nominated categories will be awarded $1,000 to donate to the shelter of their choice and a cool trophy. Glogirly says there's some extra salmon in it for me too. Winners will be announced during an online ceremony in September.
You know me, I love to win. But I'd REALLY love for our shelter furiends to win.
