Campaign Headquarters – Zee & Zoey’s Cat Ruler of the World Contest Updates!

by Deb at 6:50 AM • Cat Ruler 2012 Contest26 Comments

As usual, Zee and Zoey are nowhere to be found as they leave not only me to manage THEIR campaign, but now they have resorted to child labor, utilizing Peanut and Mia at the helm!

When you are trying to manage six cats to run for the title of Cat Ruler of the World, there is a lot that can change with these finicky felines during the course of a day or two. So, in that regard, since our debate on Tuesday and all the special posts that were done by each cat about the shelter they are campaigning for on Thursday, we have the latest updates fresh off the press (dining room table) for you!!

It seems Austin of CATachresis took Tuesday’s debate about cat napping very seriously, as he apparently went on a 48 hour nap binge and was unable to post about his shelter on Thursday. Let‘s just say it’s like the relationship status in facebook, “It’s Complicated,” and leave it at that.  But there’s more, not only did he wake up to find out  he is campaigning for a new shelter, Freshfields Animal Rescue, he also has a campaign manager!!

Yes, it’s true! Nellie, The Cat From Hell, has stepped up to the plate to put Austin’s campaign into full swing. No more napping kitties… game is on!! We welcome Nellie and look forward to what she has stored up her paws!! She has already taken charge of the remiss shelter issue and has announced that there is a post about the wonderful people at the Freshfields organization that can be read here.

The Tiniest Tiger Tote

Next update is about our super amazing grand prize package for one lucky random reader. Gracey the Tiniest Tiger whose human was in Namibia, Africa visiting with the Cheetah Conservation Fund caught wind of the contest when she got back and wanted to help this great campaign for a  cause. She and Gracey will be donating a Tiniest Tiger Tote from Triple T Studios and we thank them both so much!

The last item is not an update, but we want to remind everyone that our terrific sponsors are not just helping out whichever shelter wins the contest. So many people commenting on our blog and the Cat-idate’s blogs wish all the shelters could win. We agree. And while there is only one grand prize winning shelter, all the runner up shelters will also be getting prizes. Halo and Freekibble will be providing 1000 meals to each runner up shelter* and Zero Odor will be providing assorted odor spray products.  

We hope you enjoyed this update and we will see you all back on Tuesday when our regularly scheduled campaign topic resumes!!

*Halo is unable to ship outside of the U.S. – if Freshfields is a runner-up shelter, a financial donation will be substituted.

  1. So Miss Nellie has sold out to the kit with the Brit accent, eh?
    Well look out, Cathy Keisha and Waffles will back on the campaign trail next week kicking some fluff and taking names.

    ; ) Katie

    I am beginning to understand why I’ve always steered clear of politics.

  3. Cheysuli says:

    You mean I have to have a campaign manager? But I have no friends. Only subjects. How could I trust one of them to work fairly for me?

  4. Chey, seriouslies, you needz another MEEZER to do the job!!

  5. Our campaign manager Domino is sleeping on the job and wonder if we should fire him. We are open to offers.

    • Deb says:

      This campaign seems to be taking on a whole new spin…. do you kitties of the world hear what is going on??? Notes, offers, my, my my….

  6. CATachresis says:

    LOLOL love the comments!! I hope we can keep it clean until the vote is over! We just want everyone to come through unscathed and still talking 🙂 xox

  7. Marg says:

    Looks like everyone is looking for a campaign manager. What fun. Our Person has all she can handle right now with the auction and getting it all finished up which takes a while. We wish everyone good luck and hope the shelters all get some good stuff. Take care.

  8. Cory says:

    My momma Ellie would help the Meezer cause…but she is a helper not a full on campaign manager. If she can lend a paw to Chey she will.

    One Meezer to rule them all!

  9. Bernadette says:

    Good heavens, I’m trying to catch up on all the news of the fe-lection and I’ve missed so much! Five furry black faces and one red-headed human are sitting here looking back and forth like a tennis match as the comments fly by.

  10. We like the idea of a campaign where there are good winners!

  11. Cathy Keisha says:

    I just like to pawty! HAH! See you guys in the trenches. Waffle, fetch me some SilverVine!

  12. Oh this campaign is getting good! Let the mud-slinging begin!! 🙂

  13. Well, I have offered to be a future Minister of Nip but only one cat-idate promised to put me on her shortlist.
    Of course, I have for me my international experience and stuff. Just saying…

  14. Christine says:

    Well good for Austin! He’s living up to campaign promises! This is addicting! It’s better than a good soap opera!

  15. Thank you for this update and running such a pawsome election contest.

  16. meowmeowmans says:

    This campaign season is getting pretty exciting! We just hope there’s no cat-litter slinging.

  17. Skeeter and Izzy says:

    Oh Meez oh Miiizzzzzzzzzzz what fun weezzz iss all havins!
    Luvs Skeeter and Izzy >^OO^<

  18. Fisher says:

    I am with Brian. Politics! Kitties, if you stay clear of human TV news, you may get through this without resorting to human political tactics. You are all too good for that! Peace out. tee hee

  19. Jackie Mcatee says:

    Thanks to all the cat-idates for such an entertaining and spirited campaign. I’ve been telling everyone I know about this, even my friends that claim to be “not a cat person”. (how anyone could not be a cat person is beyond me!)
    Thanks for helping kitties! That’s the most important thing 🙂
    Much love from me and my furry bunch, Spoiled Kitty (matriarch of the fabulous six), Crazy Kitty(nuff said there) , Midnight (a once in a while guest, but nonetheless, a beloved member of our family and my heart) , Runtley (the enforcer/bouncer) , Aphrodite (my gorgeous long haired tortie and total diva/princess) and Sherman (my big, loveable, handsome furry son 🙂

    • Deb says:

      Jackie – thank you for your kind and thoughtful commment!! This is what I hoped the campaign would be – entertaining and spirited!! Sometimes it’s serious, sometimes silly, but always with the ultimate message, that cats are amazing creatures and they need our help! I have known a couple people since I started writing who claimed not to be “cat people” and have actually converted a few of them with my words and they are now proud and hopelessly addicted cat lovers!! 🙂
