New Year's Challenge & Gift Drawing

Kimo: We has a challenge fer you! If you accept da challenge, we will enter you in a drawing fer some REAL ART! (official roolz at end of post)

Sabi: Every year, on New Year's Day, Mommakitty helps us visit EVERY SINGLE blog in our blogroll! We currently has 448 puddin bloggers in our blogroll, plus some woofies, buns and hamsters. We sit and watch the New Year's Day parade and football games and it takes us about 5 hours to git through da entire blogroll - but we do it! (If you haven't heard from us yet, we're still working on it! Da Blurp has been distractin' us.)

Kimo: We challenge all of you to visit some new pet bloggers this year (or one's you don't know furry well yet). Fer everyone who accepts da challenge, you wil be entered in a drawing fer some artwerk of the wonnerful artist Kerry Beary.

Sabi: Kerry is a professional artist who sold her first piece at age 15. It was a copy of Iron Maiden's "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" album cover on the back of a Levi's denim jacket! Now she does these cute little limited edition prints and sells them on Etsy. She LOVES cats and she has some woofies in her fambly.

Kimo: This is the print you will win. It is called "Love Cats" and is a limited edition # 6/35. That means she only printed 35 and this was da 6th one printed. It is even signed by da artist! It is 5x7 unframed, but purrrfect fer a standard size mat / frame.

Sabi: Along wif da print, you will also git a cool frige magnet (wif some cat art) AND a 15% discount coupon to buy more of Kerry Beary's cool stuff!!!

Kimo: Please visit Kerry Beary's Etsy shop to see all her cools stuff - she gots owls, penguins, woofies, turtles . . . coasters, original art - you name it! To visit her Etsy shop CLICK HERE.

Sabi: Here are the official roolz fer da challenge and drawing:


1) Visit 5 new pet bloggers (or one's you don't know furry well). Feel free to browse our blogroll fer some bloggers.
2) Visit them and wish them a Happy New Year (if yer brave, challenge them to participate in da challenge).
3) Post on yer own bloggie who you have visited and include their links.
4) Leave us a comment that you've entered da challenge and include a link back to your sight so we can check it out.
5) Open to all pet bloggers.
6) Challenge begins on 1/1/09 and closes on Friday 1/9/09 11:59pm PST.

Wow, you have a really big blogroll!

We are on there but as "Its All About Meow" - - that was our WordPress blog that crashed and burned last March.
We moved back to blogger after that happened.
If you want to correct it our address is:

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! I think that's way to ambitious for the Woman. She'd probably have to add 5 more blogs to her already overflowing blogroll and then what would she do?!

Fin said...

What a great idea!

Happy New Year!

Sweet Praline said...

Okay. I will join in and try to visit at least 5 new kitties this week. This sounds like fun!

Happy New Year!

Mr. Echo said...

What a cool idea! I will do it this weekend. Rite now I gots visiters to keep an eye on. I rememburr that pitchur of when the Blurpy Gurl came home. It made Mommy say "awww". Its a wunnerful thing to rememburr.

Derby said...

Happy New Year to you. We managed to get through our current 200+ blogs last night and today. I have no idea if I had to do 400+. But then she only will watch the rosey parade and not do anything but watch. She really wants to see the fancy flowers and stuff.

Cat with a garden said...

That is quite an achievement to go to efurry blog! Happy New Year to you and your family!

Cat with a garden said...

Oh nos! Maybe it's all the videos that make our blog slow? Thank you for the info - we'll set the other type of human on it. ; )

Fat Eric said...

Happy New Year!

Grrreta said...

We wish you a very Happy New Year!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

We did just upgrade to WP 2.7 but that was yesterday I think... So I'm not sure that would make a difference. I wonder if there is something going on because we hadn't upgraded yet? Hmm... No we didn't change anything else that we know of... Was it just slow or was it giving you an error message?

HotMBC and Robyn said...

Happy Noo Yeer yall!!!!

Samantha and Mr. Tigger said...

Kimo, Sabi, Kiera, Momma & Daddy Kitty we want to wish you a Happy New Year and a Prosperous 2009!!

Happy New Year ... and what a great challenge! I think we'll have to work in this this weekend. I already met someone new because they visited me, and I visited them, and I'm better off for it! 448 blogs, wow ... who knew there were that many of us out there, really? I remember when I started you could make it around in 30 minutes easy. Be careful letting your Mom look on Etsy ... it's almost more addictive than Facebook.

Kiddo said...

I accept your challenge! I visited five new blogs just now. Check out my blog to see who I visited!


Cory said...

We completed the challenge! We will be listing the 5 blogs next Friday!

NOA&ash said...

Happy New Year to all of you! Thanks for visiting! I've used your blogroll before to meet new furriends, great list to explore! :)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

My "SWEETIE" has been on a long vacation from Blogging....He appears occassionally on my Blog, but has not written on his own blog for quite a long long time.....Thanks for visiting me and asking after him, though...We BOTH appreciate it, more than we can say....!

MaoMao said...

Sweet Praline said...

I have visited five new friends and have left their link, a picture, and a short description about each of them on Monday, January 5th post at

This was a cool idea.

The Island Cats said...

We met the challenge and posted about it today!


Kiddo said...

So, I've been thinking....Maybe every Friday could be Friendly Friday. And the participants can post about their friends, new or old. What do you think? If it is OK with you, b/c you guys started it. Let me know and then I will tell KC at the cat blogosphere so we can get it promoted!

China Cat said...
