Worst Purr-fur-mance Review Ever...and a Give-Away!


UPDATE:

The winner of the Thermo-Kitty Mat is the lovely and talented Danielle of Life of a Spoiled Cat. Congratulations, Danielle!

***************************************************















Hi Kitties,

As you probably already know, it's that time of year again...annual purr-fur-mance review time for our assistant. It's not going to be pretty. Our assistant helped us post only FIFTEEN times in 2010, and we kitties had to do most of the work ourselves by walking across and sitting on the keyboard. We are very, very, very disappointed by our assistant's (lack of) purr-fur-mance last year.

Frowny 
The good news is that in a desperate effort to convince us she deserves a purr-fur-mance review that is not completely comprised of a giant frowny face drawing, our assistant is helping us give away a fabulous prize to one of our friends who stops by and leaves a comment on our blog.

We are giving away a brand new Thermo-Kitty Mat. It is a 12" x 25" electric heated kitty mat to give a lucky kitty a warm and toasty place to nap and snuggle during the cold winter months. Just leave a comment on this post (one comment per family) and make sure we have a way to contact you by email (on blogger account, in your comment, or email us your email address). We will pick the lucky winner using random.org on Monday, January 31st.

OH wow! Only 15 times during the year. Your mom has a lot of making up to do.

I definitely want to be entered in the contest. My mom has noticed that I am having a harder time jumping on the couch and I am moving slower. She thinks my joints are getting stiff and a heated bed could really help out. So please enter me!

Hi there! We've missed you! We hope your mom helps you post more than that in 2011.

Please enter us in the contest!

Grrreta, I was just prowling your neighborhood and thought I'd stop by. I don't post that much either. I hate staying awake that long.

OMC! Your human should bribe you for a better review by giving the Thermo-Kitty mat to YOU! But that is all right, I will take it if I win!

(I can be contacted on my blog!!)

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Oh My! Only 15 times? We hope she can do better this coming year!

Here we thinks our numbers are going down! Our mom posted 84 times in 2010. But in 2009 she posted 125 times! At this rate we will be joining you soon.

We would like to join in on the give-away!

My mum has slacked off recently too. I don't think her performance review will be as good as last year.

I'd love to be entered, but only if you're happy to post the mat to me in Australia if I win. I will understand if you don't!

Forever Foster said...

That frowny face is a pretty harsh purrformance review. Your mum did give you two of the coolest cat names on the whole Blogosphere :)

Kea said...

Only 15 posts in 2010? Oh, boy...You need a new assistant. Seriously.

But if Canadian kitties can enter your draw, we'd love to: keas DOT fuzzy DOT tales AT gmail DOT com

Thanks!

Fin said...

Oh boy I'm in!

I don't know if this makes up for her performance but I'd say it's a start. She has left comments from time to time if that wins her any points... wait the drawing is random? Guess my buttering up isn't going to help then.

Only 15 times! Your mum has a lot of making up to do to try and improve her report.

WE give our mom a double unsmiley face, so we know how it is.
That looks like a wonderful prize!

Wow, that thermal matt sure looks like it is a must have in the cold month of the winter weather. There is snow where there shouldn't even be snow. I sure hope I might win and snuggle down on it if I do. Oh, I will keep my paws crossed.
Yep, now the mom's purrrformances are due. I say read them and weep. Pay back you know.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Well, we posted 172 times...but we never catch up visiting our furriends as you can tell! In a week, we are only at the 'G's on our blogroll and then we don't have time to read everyones comments ourselves!

Cool contest you had, and we see that 'Spoiled Kitty' won the mat, yay!

Angus Mhor said...

My mom's not much better, Grrreta. She may have posted a few more times, but that's just not good enough! We need to form a union and strike!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Congradulations to the winners! I still think my mom is the baddest about posting! She takes picture after picture.... then she just sits and stares at them!

LizzyBean said...

I fear that we would get a bad "purr-fur-mance" review too, complete with frowny face. I've been getting loud complaints from Alice and all the other furry gang to get back to blogging! Tell your mom we love y'all's blog, even with intermittent posts -- we are firm fans!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hey--Hello Greta! My Human hasn't been TOO bad about blogging. But VISITING? Pfft! As if! Her grades are really going to suck.

Karen Jo said...

And I thought my Mom was a lax blogger. I hope she does better this year.
