Wednesday Word—PowerBall

Wednesday Word—PowerBall

Is there another word that’s on more human lips in the U.S. today than PowerBall? If you don’t live in the U.S., PowerBall is a lottery game offered in 44 states. At the end of this post, I’m gonna tell you how to up your odds of winning $1.5 billion. By the time you read this, it could be much higher too.

I know all the excuses for not playing and I can tell you why you’re wrong.

While that may be true for HHGutt and Autumn it’s not true for the millions of cats in shelters and especially those living on our streets. Wouldn’t it be pawsome if someone like you or me won just a fraction of that $1.5 billion and donated a fraction of that to help those strays? UCFCC’s goal over the next 10 years is to raise $600,000 to build a shelter in my community. I could pay for much of that if I won. If you win and decide to keep the moolah—who knows?—you could buy the presidency in four years! How would you spend your winnings?

I know it’s just pie in the sky, as the humans say, but believe it or not, Gramma’s nephew actually hit the Lotto jackpot many years ago. TW doesn’t know him from Adam but if this ghetto kitteh was alive, I’d have found out where he lived and would have been waiting on his doorstep with my paw out.

Now I’m gonna tell you the first step in making the dreams of those homeless cats I mentioned above a reality. I’ve analyzed all the most popular numbers (20, 37, 2, 31, 35 and 42) and the states who have the most winners (PA, FL, IN and MO) to come up with my scientific advice which is:

You gotta be in it to win it!
All you need is $2 and a dream!

I can't get my human interested in this, for some reason! She says she believes the mathematicians and thinks it is a waste of dreaming.

Us Katie Katz am kinda confused about powerball... we gots dat here but am dat same ball in all states? can we just whap da ball to win? does da ball bounce around from state to state? how many cat bloggers could get together to whap the ball if we am in different states?

Good luck CK!

Laila and Minchie said...

Good luck to you! We have 5 tickets and would be happy with $1,000 or just even getting our green papers back!

Tamago said...

You have a really good point. If we would ever win a big money, there is so much we can do for homeless kitties! Good luck, CK!

Our dad's been playing the last couple of weeks. Mom has all the excuses you listed. She's already told Dad if he wins half of it gets split between our local no kill shelter and the TNR/Rescue group we work with. He's okay with that. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the winner does help save the lives of animals? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We splurged and bought 2 tickets. I would help so many cats and rescue groups with that money. And I know you would too CK and pretty much any of us cat bloggers would.

Caren Gittleman said...

I always have said that if I won, I would either open my own shelter or donate A LOT to a number of shelters (and shelters for battered women and kids too)
Praying that a Canadian doesn't win (sorry to the Canadians who read your blog)....we live by the border of Ontario and Detroit and they are coming to the U.S. IN DROVES to play......yes, they ARE eligible to win......we have two tickets......wishing you tons of luck! I would love to see someone like you or I, or many others who need it win! catchatwithcarenandcody

Mariodacat said...

You know CK you have a very good point. Guess I'll buy a ticket after all and donate 95% of the money to a shelter - maybe a couple of them. You are so smart!

Shadow said...

CK it looks like you may have the secret to winning in your eyes.

I've never been into playing the lottery because it seems so hopeless, but I hope whoever does win is a HUGE animal lover who can do a great deal of good with their winnings!

The Island Cats said...

We hope somebuddy wins it so everybuddy will stop talking about it. ;)

Dash Kitten said...

CK If you win, you can fly with Mum to BlogPaws and we get to meet you and hang out and chat and learn cool stuff. GO on win it lady!!!

Jean Neilson said...

Wow, all that money and you have to be in the states to win.....mom heard someone on the radio today and you should at least be a Canadian in the States. Let's see if any friends in Blogville win.

If you win the $1.5 Billion jackpot, you could fund the entire $600,000 shelter and have your name put on it. Stunning Keisha's Ghetto Kitty Care and Adoption Center. And you'd have, oh, about $750 million left over to buy treats & toys.

Patty Woodland said...

I didn't win. Which is about what I expected.

Christy Paws said...

Sorry you didn't win, CK. You have a great plan.

Just Ducky said...

Mum's ticket didn't match a thing. Oh well.

Austin Towers said...

We heard that three people won $1.6 billion dollars!! I can't even imagine how many Dreamie treats that would buy!!!
