And the Winner is …

Dateline: September 17. Somewhere in NJ, a stunning cat is sleeping. She opens one eye. Her iPhone is buzzing. She yawns and picks it up.

Waffles: Um, CK? Can I call you CK? I got Katie here. She'd like to talk to you.

CK: Yo! Whassup, Kate-ster? This better be good. I was in the middle —

Katie: WE WON!! BLIND CAT RESCUE WON! Oh, and I'm the Cat Ruler of the World.

CK: Whoa! Head rush! Er, I trust there's gonna be a spot for me in your administration. Campaign Managers usually get a primo appointment. Na mean?

Katie: I'll get back to you on that. Salmon cabinet, here I come!

Waffles: Um, CK, can I call you that? Ms. Katie's gone so I'm going to say 'toodles' and hang up now if that's OK. Um, CK?

CK has already popped the Nip-pagne cork and is celebrating for Blind Cat Rescue.

OK, who's the joker who stuck the streamer on my back??

Lest we not forget the real winners—Blind Cat Rescue. We'd go to the ends of the Earth for them.


It's been an exhausting campaign and we're sorry there could only be one winner because we loved all the shelters. But we're happy it was us!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Katie for having faith in this little ghetto kitty and keeping up with the busy schedule I arranged for her. She aced the Twitter pawty, the video and the celeb endorsement, as I knew she would. Thanks to Blind Cat Rescue and all the kitties that I've come to know and love. You've shown me that love isn't something that you see with your eyes.

I'd also like to thank @Whskr and my staff at the #Vote4Katie pawty (@ShaynaCat @DashKitten @LilyLuWhoT @MizzBassie @Kingtuttifruiti @ParkerSKat); @Flacatlady @Whskr and KTF for giving me advice on how to host a pawty; @MizzBassie for helping with the schedule; and a cast of cats and dogs for retweeting the pawty and the voting links. A special meow-out to @cludiab53 for tweeting our cause so much that she wound up in Twitmo. And, I'd also like to thank Waffles for getting my Catbucks orders right most of the time. "No, Waffles, NOT Oil of Olay! Listen to me! CAFE AU LAIT!" Last but not least, I'd like to thank our opponents for inspiring this kitteh to keep reaching for the stars. You guys ROCK!

Will you still speak to the little Kittehs?
