Raffle Winners

We wanted to thank effurryone who purchased raffle tickets. Thanks to you, we have almost reached our goal and we didn't even have to give up treats or stinky goodness yet.

Without further ado here are the winners.

The Emily (small pink) was won by: Grr, Midnight and Cocoa

The Eliot (small blue) was won by: Gypsy and Tasha

The Abbie (large pink) was won by: 2 Carolina Cats*

and finally, the Percy (small orange) was won by: Taylor and Clay*

*EDIT* after reviewing the film we realized our beans posted the last two winners out of order last night - apologies for the confusion - we won't let them handle anything so important next time.

Pictures of the drawing to be posted later this week (hopefully tonight).

Please contact us with your address and your blanket will be off to you this weekend.

Also, if you would still like to donate please click the botton below. We may have another auction or raffle in the near future - mom said she wants to look at the budget and see if there's any fat to trim first - we hope she's not referring to Percy.

Purrs and Thank You!!!

Hi efurrybody!

Sorry to everyone if you were hoping to know the results sooner but good luck to anyone who still wants to enter!



The Great Percy Toe Raffle


With dad going back to school, my family is having a hard time coming up with the money for my cancer surgery. So, my wonderful grandma made me four fleece blankets. When they first came I was so excited because I thought they were all for me and I could sleep on them in every room, but the note said they were to raffle off to earn money for my surgery. I have to admit, I'm not excited about my surgery, but it sure was nice of grandma to think of me.

My brofur and sisfurs helped me model the blankets. I thought I would begin by showing you what my foot will look like after my surgery so you can better visualize my goal:

First up, the blanket we call the Eliot, because it has a blue backing that is his favorite color:

This blanket will be raffled off individually for $2 per chance.

Next is my purrsonal favorite, a little gem we like the call the Percy, because it has an orange back just like me!

This beauty could be yours for just $2 per chance!

Next up, a treat for all you pink loving cats - a blanket we have dubbed Emily, because she's a girl and pink is her signature color:

This one can be yours again for just $2 per chance.

Next we have a blanket we like to call Abbie, because she has enough energy to be considered two cats: the double-cat-sized version of the pink backing blanket:

This blanket, perfect for any multi-cat household, can be yours for just $3 per chance.

But that's not all, we also set up some value packs for cats interested in more than one cat blanket.

Our first set we call the Brofurs, this includes having your name entered to win both the blue and orange backed blankets, two raffles for just $3:

Here's Abbie modeling the Brofurs blankets:

And for just $4, you can be entered for the Sisfurs - where you name will be entered in both drawings for the pink backed blankets:

And for our mega deal - go for the Cat Stephens - where for just $6 you'll be entered in the drawing for each blanket!

And just to show you how cat friendly these blankets are, here are all the Cat Stephens modeling all the blankets!

Eliot, Emily and Percy wanted to show you just how comfy and warm they are to lay on.

All blankets went through extensive quality control that was snoopervised by yours truly:

For those who want to help but aren't interested in a blanket - use this button

Raffle Update:
The girls and I were talking, and what about all the people who have a boy cat and a girl cat - shouldn't they get a deal on raffle tickets too! So here you go:

The Fluffies (Eliot (blue backed) and Abbie (large pink backed) blankets) $4:

The Short Furs (Percy (orange backed) and Emily (small pink backed) blankets) $3:

The Grays (Eliot (blue backed) and Emily (small pink backed) blankets) $3:
Halloween (Percy (orange backed) and Abbie (large pink backed) blankets) $4:
Contest opens Monday, July 28, 2008 at 12 noon EST; contest closes Friday August 15, 2008 at 11:59 PM EST Wednesday, August 20, 2008 at 8 AM EST.

Winners will be announced no later than Sunday, August 17, 2008 at 8 PM EST Wednesday, August 20, 2008 at 10 PM.

You may purchase as many raffle tickets as you’d like for any combination of the blankets.

Winner for each blanket will be first name drawn.

One person could win more than one blanket; one person could possibly win all four blankets. In the event any one person wins more than one blanket, they can keep all blankets that they have won, or chose a blanket to keep and give the rest to a second place drawing winner.

Blankets will ship out no later than Saturday, August 23, 2008, provided all winners provide addresses.

Purr usual, I can change the rules anytime I want to…

UPDATE: The fabulous Ann of Zoolatry made some wonderful badges for us, in case anyone wants to put them up. Thanks Ann! You sure are pawsome!

Thanks and purrs,
