Purina® Cat Chow® Correspondent Contest: Runner-Up

Hey, so, you guys remember how I entered that Purina® Cat Chow® Correspondent Contest? Well, I didn't win but I got runner-up! My cats are enjoying their free cat chow now! Thanks, Purina!

They also gave me praise. I love praise! More than money! To quote Lisa Simpson during the teachers' strike (if I recall correctly), "Grade me grade me grade me."

Now, granted, I don't know how many runners-up there were. Maybe everyone who entered got the same e-mail... I don't care! Praise! Yay!

Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Update: So far I can only find a total of 3 other Runners-Up out of the 3,000 applicants. Here are their related posts in no particular order:

Not that I'm obsessively checking. Ok. I'm obsessively checking. It's just that the email means so much more if only shared with 3 other hopeful cat correspondents, not, y'know 3,000. May, 10 2011

Also, please stay tuned for the upcoming book/website "Cats In Places" by author Amy Wallace (and me!).

[Update: www.catsinplaces.com is now live! Book in the works!]

This is tooooo funny! I also wondered if I was truly special. Now I'm wondering if I was a runner up...

Well, that answers that questions!

Hee, hee!

Looks like we all got the same praise, if we got the runner-up notice. ;-D

Congratulations, fellow-runnerup, and thanks for the mention. ;-D

I've been waiting a bit, hoping to learn more from a Purina mention, about how many runne-ups there were. ;-D
