|"I'll take care of that for you!"
Want to win a set of 6 catnip toy snakes? All you need to do is leave a comment mentioning name(s) of your cat(s). At the last moment of the competition, March 08, 2013 at 12 AM EST I will print out all of the comments and allow Charlie to pick the winning slip by whichever method he chooses. Tap of the paw? Cat saliva drowning incident? Well, that part we don't exactly know yet! But I will announce the lucky cat(s) here on March 09 and request a mailing address for delivery of the prize.
Part of the package is an all green snake - just in time for St. Patrick's Day! The ferocious tiger viper will accompany him.
Now, if I were to enter my own contest, here's what my comment would look like:
Ooooo! I sooo wanna win this! My cats' names are Charlie, Mickey, Iggy, Rosie, Katie and Annie. Pleeeeease Charlie! Pick meeee!
About.com and the professional, well organized, and hard working Susan Adcox for the honor of being included in this prestigious competition. We invite you to visit all five finalists, choose your favorite, and vote. To those who nominated me, to those who will vote in this final round, and to Susan, I am delighted to be recognized among such fine company. Thank you!
Full Disclosure! Charlie wanted to offer his "winner-picker" services to Susan. I told him I suspected she would graciously decline, citing that one of those "professional thingies" has already been installed. He responded by yawning, stretching, and curling up into a giant cotton ball, murmuring, "Tell her to call me first next year!"
