Coral Springs, FL, August 21, 2012 – Deciding that it was time to change the current human political arena that is rampant with mudslinging and slanderous campaigning, author, blogger, and cat advocate, Deborah Barnes of Zee & Zoey’s Chronicle Connection, is proud to introduce six well established cats in the blogosphere who will be competing for the prestigious title of Cat Ruler of the World, as well as campaigning for a shelter of their choice. Whichever cat is ultimately elected Cat Ruler of the World will be presenting their shelter with a combined cash and prize donation with a retail value of approximately $7500.00.
While this is a competition, the number one rule according to Barnes, “Is to keep it fun. We are all friends and there is to be no biting, hissing, scratching, or litter-flinging.” She continues, “Rather than using negative partisan attacks, the main goal of the contest is to use these cats as a united vehicle to entertain and educate the general public about cat related causes in a humorous and positive way.”
It seems that a lot of people agree with her fun and positive approach. Jean Broders, Brand Manager of World’s Best Cat Litter, states, “When we were approached by Ms. Barnes to be a sponsor for the contest, we were thrilled. We love the idea and are excited to be part of something that can promote better cat care by using humor and good-natured fun.”
Other sponsors who are donating to the shelter portion of the contest include Halo Pet Foods (co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres), FreeKibble.com, Zero Odor, PetPlan Insurance, and NVR Miss Litterbox. Barnes herself will be donating proceeds from the sale of her book, The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey – A Journey of the Extraordinarily Ordinary to the winning shelter.
The nominees are the altruistic Brian from Brian’s Home campaigning for Kitten Action Team of SC, the socially savvy Katie from Glogirly campaigning for Blind Cat Rescue in NC , the best-selling cat author, Sparkle, from Sparkle the Designer Cat campaigning for Tabby’s Place in NJ, the ever-charming playboy Odin from Cat Wisdom 101 campaigning for Brigid’s Crossing in FL, the very humble Cheysuli from The Cat Post Intelligencer campaigning for Purrfect Pals in WA, and the dry-witted Brit, Austin from CATachresis in the UK campaigning for The Original Cat Action Trust.
Blog readers are encouraged to join in the fun as well. A grand prize package to one lucky reader and six runner up readers will be awarded with a total retail value of over $1000 from the following sponsors: Bergan, Brawny Cat, Thirsty Cat Fountains, Catpods, Sunny Seat, Sunbeam Pets, Jackson Galaxy, Spirit Essences, FURminator, The Conscious Cat, PetSmart, Kittyblock, Catty Stacks, KatKabin, Bissell, Zero Odor, NVR Miss Litterbox, World’s Best Cat Litter, Feline Lickety Stik, Moderncat Studio, and Cat-a-pole.
Taking the format of the traditional national election in the States, every Tuesday through September 11th, 2012 a post will be featured on Zee & Zoey’s Chronicle Connection where the cats will debate various topics. Voting polls will officially open on September 11th and just like a real election, a person can only cast one ballot. The Cat Ruler of the World and prize winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 18th at Zee & Zoey’s Chronicle Connection.
