Hi everyone, Katie here.
This is BIG.
This is REALLY BIG.
Glogirly and I have just been named finalists in Purina's "The Friskies" Contest for The Best New Internet Cat Video of 2012! We're both having a little trouble breathing right now. NO ONE is getting ANY sleep here at the townhouse with all the excitement.
We submitted a brand-new, never-before-seen, video just over a week ago. Inspired by actual events, "Katie Is ... ACCUSED" chronicles my recent brush with the law over allegations of Shoelace Tampering. It stars me and a whole host of my anipals from around the blogosphere. In the coming days we'll be featuring my costars and some behind-the-scenes exclusives in a series of very blog posts.
According to the Friskies Facebook Page, 1,414 videos were submitted. The judges had to narrow it down to only 12 finalists. And they picked ME!!!
Now it's up to YOU! The public vote is officially underway and we need your help BIG TIME. Voting runs through November 9 and it's only one vote per email address. Please tell your friends, your family, your readers...heck, you can even tell your UPS man and your Vet! We SO want to win the golden kitty statuette. Oh, and there's some pretty substantial scratch at stake too. And we're not talkin' about the kind you need a cat post for.
What's more, every vote, like or share of any video at Purina's Friskies Facebook Page will trigger a donation of 5 cans of Friskies to one of 25 cat charity partners across the nation, up to 250,000 cans!
WE WILL VOTE!!ReplyDelete

Katie has my vote! She is a fantastic actress. I hope she doesn't go too DIVA on her fans. I think she was set-up and that dog on the jury was pure volation of her catstitutional rights.ReplyDelete
