What's Your Reason Contest!

UPDATE: The contest has ended.

Molly Katz' wonderful book, 101 Reasons To Dump Your Man and Get a Cat, is simply too good to keep to myself. Now is your chance to win a free hardcover copy of the book! Read below to find out how!

With the spirit of the book in mind, all you have to do is leave comments for this post in which you state your reasons as to why someone should leave his or her significant other and get a cat. You can only post one reason per comment, but you can post as many times as you want! After you leave your thoughtful and inspiring explanations as to why felines make better life partners, you must visit the previous commentor's blog and leave a comment for him or her. Make sure you let them know in your comment that Zeus Is My Reason For the Season.

To win, simply have the most reasons posted here by Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. CST. Five winners will be chosen, and my human pet will contact you for your personal information. Make sure to spread the word about the contest on your own blog to encourage more people to play!

Come back often! Don't forget to hit refresh! Oh, and that reminds me! Enjoy some refreshments while you play. I have brought together some fine cavier, tuna, a delightful cheese tray, Carr's crackers and biscuits, freshly baked brownies, Oregon Chai tea lattes, coffee, sodas, and of course, milk for all of my fine purring friends.

OH COOL. we is ferst! The reason that mommy should dump daddy for us is that while he can be snuggly at night, wif just us, she doesn't has to wake up wif a pillow in her hands screaming "shut up - stop snoring or I will use this to shut you up". - Sammy and Miles

William said...

Zeus, this is too easy! The best reason to dump your man and get a cat is CATS ARE EASIER TO TRAIN!

William's mom.

Zeus said...

What a great start to the contest! Remember, Meezers abd William Squilliam: come back often and leave as many reasons as you can think of in order to win! I wish you both luck!

P.S. I definitely agree with you, William! ;)

Mom ssys: It's easier to flip open the lid on a can of cat food than it is to cook a meal.

(Elaine's Reason #1)

Our fur is softer than a guy's beard.

Derby said...

Cat's don't leave the seat up on the human's litter box.

Derby said...

You'll save on the grocery bill!

Elaine's Reason #2

Anonymous said...

By the way, Zeus Is My Reason For the Season. (This is getting confusing - I already said this on Wm's blog!) Just covering all the bases ...

Cheysuli said...

I'm more intelligent that the human male.

Zeus said...

You leave Zeus Is My Reason For the Season on the person's blog above your comment. So for example, William would have gone to the Meezers, read one of their posts, and then left a comment. At the end, he says, "Zeus Is My Reason For The Season!"

This is just a small way to encourage people to find out about the contest. Also the more times you comment, the more likely you will be to bring people to your blog! :) We all win!

Keep up the good work, Derby and Lux!
